My Life

A Working Vacation

I’m in Wisconsin, in a place that looks like this.

Doing things like this.

It’s super fun. I think my students learned a great deal tonight, too.

p.s. The raccoon is eating from a box of Cracker Jacks.

    I am so bummed I missed it!

    True story, I signed up and paid for “The Organized Blogger” class last month. The day of the class I kept having this nagging feeling that I was forgetting something…Yup. I am too disorganized to remember to ATTEND a class on organization.

    I had every intention of taking your class tonight, but had a meeting-it’s one that I’ve had my eye on each time it come up on the ALT channel. Hoping you’ll offer it again soon?

    I heart WI. The two classic backgrounds of any WI vacation photographs–lakefront and cabin/taxidermy. My album also includes a pic of me indulging in curds–not a pretty sight. My family resides in Madison, which happens to have the best farmers market (Sat mornings). You should check it if you’re close.

    I’m loving your blog! I gave you a shout out on mine yesterday. I’ve been obsessing about the idea of a Chicago Blog Podium since you wrote about it on a previous post…why not? I feel like it would be the perfect hosting spot. Food for thought…

    I’ve had tea parties with stuffed teddy bears before, but never ones that had a previous life. This is too funny!

    Fun!! We are in the WI Northwoods for the week.
    The inlaws and hubsand pulled out on Sunday night. I am up here with two kids and two dogs. First night alone, kinda scary. We made it to sunrise. :)

    oh my goodness! i love and follow your blog but I missed this when it was originally posted. I had to comment because my boyfriend is from Wisconsin and visiting there with him is always wonderful. We were actually just there a few weeks ago to attend his sister’s wedding and I must have filled my computer’s entire hard drive with pictures and video. It must have been maybe our second or third day there and I made a comment about how every home or building you walk into seems to have a deer head or some other taxidermied critter in it. so, this post definitely made me smile and helped to confirm my theory :)
