Hope your weekend was amazing!
Adam and I were watching the news one morning and they were doing a special segment in Milwaukee on a play going on this month, "The Diary of Anne Frank". I have always been so fascinated by the Holocaust and have read Anne's diary before, so I was in the mood to check out this play.
Adam and I live in this wonderful area of Wisconsin that is 45 minutes from Milwaukee and 1 hour from Chicago. You basically have two mega cities at your fingertips for all the fun stuff, and then go home to your smaller lakefront city while agreeing that as fun as the big cities are, you could never live there. Best of both worlds, holla.
We aren't big theatre buffs, but the acting was excellent and the set design was amazing! They basically replicated the space in 2 floors instead of three, but the square footage was very close to the real deal. Afterwards we hit up the Milwaukee Brat House to get a giant bavarian pretzel, a couple of brats and an unhealthy dose of Sauerkraut.
Diary of Anne Frank Play + German restaurant= irony?
Yesterday was crazy warm outside so we decided to go ahead and put up christmas lights early.... Which basically entails me trying to tell Adam something doesn't look right while he is precariously standing on a ladder 25 feet above the ground.
Sorry Adam. Unfortunately you married someone who is as bad at putting Christmas lights on a house as she is bossy. Not a good combo.
I'm not sure what form of holiday decorating could be more dangerous than putting up Christmas lights though. Seriously. But in the event of a catastrophe, everyone calm down. Lily's got it. She always sits off to the side, wind blowing her hair, just keeping watch over the herd. Until a squirrel runs in the yard.
Christmas decorating is kind of like eating one of those fun size candy bars. You'll just have one. And then 2 hours later you are wanting to put a blow-up 12 foot Santa in your yard and the entire bag of Kit Kats is a goner.
What do you usually do for Xmas decorating? Do you go a little overboard or keep it simple? I am a total minimalist, so the only thing that keep ours simple is the fact that the other 11 months out of the year, we have to store the stuff.
