Friday night, I went bowling with my roommates. It was so very Wisconsin of us. Unfortunately, I didn't do so well. It was pretty embarrassing actually for a person who has been on three separate leagues in her lifetime and used to bowl every Wednesday just for fun during her Junior year of high school... But, like all things, practice makes perfect and I can't even remember the last time I went bowling. (I also realize how much of a dork this makes me to admit to any of this, but I don't care. I love bowling! At least The Dude abides...)
On Saturday, I got together with Natasha. I met her a few months ago through blogging and we've been wanting to plan a meet-up for quite some time. Since she was in DC visiting with her brother this weekend, we took advantage of that and grabbed some lunch and talked for a few hours while Kyle and her brother were at a BBQ Festival. It was so great to finally meet her in person! This was definitely the first of many get togethers. :)
After I left Natasha, I decided to walk around and do a little shopping. I turned a corner and saw this sign and gasped! I had no idea Fiona was coming back to DC. I saw her perform at Sixth&I at the end of March with Andrew... I had no idea she'd be back so soon! I have a serious Fiona obsession. I'm afraid to look at tickets, though. It might even be sold out already... It's tempting, but I know I really can't afford to spend that right now, so I'm convincing myself to not look up ticket prices. *cries*
Later on, I had dinner with my roommates. It was a beautiful night, so we found a pizza place where we could all sit outside.
After that, we went mini-golfing. I'm a big fan of mini-golf. We drove 30 miles to a seemingly small, abandoned town and paid $5 for 18 holes. Not bad! The course was cute and lit up nice and the people running it were sweet. I also recall seeing a framed picture of Rodney Dangerfield hanging up behind them, so that proves how awesome it was.
Right next to the golf course, there was an ice cream shop with a line almost as long as Georgetown Cupcake! Well, okay, maybe not quite that long, but it was still a sight to see. Of course we had to join in and get some sundaes of our own.
We saw this cow and had to get a picture with it. He reminded us of home...That whole area gave us such a nice feeling. There was something very Wisconsin about it. Too bad it's so far away. Finding places like this is always so much fun. I think this weekend was the first time since the end of May where it actually felt like summer. Mini-golf, lunch outside, and late night ice cream with friends is the perfect combination. I look forward to doing it again!
P.S. It's mine and Andrew's one year anniversary today! He comes home tomorrow morning and I seriously can't wait! He left for Brazil at the beginning of June and I miss him more and more each day. I'm so excited to see him. ♥ ♥ ♥
