Weekending // Up North Edition

As always after a holiday weekend, I’m sure all of you can agree that Monday morning has come much too soon.

Did everybody have a fun and relaxing long weekend? As I mentioned last week, Ryan and I spent the past few days in northern Wisconsin at his family’s lake house in Hayward, Wis. We hadn’t been up there since last Labor Day – we weren’t even married yet! – so it was nice to escape and soak up some sunshine and fresh air.


The Anderson men always kick off the weekend with a shot of bourbon (can you say gross?!) and a toast to the ones that came before us … or in their lingo, “the old farts.” As you can see, the fashion up north is something to behold.

Ryan’s aunt and uncle also have a lake house about a half hour away, so we spent a couple hours over there Saturday morning. Ryan and his brother, Chris, helped their uncle anchor their raft. This picture doesn’t do it justice, but it was entertaining to watch.

Otherwise, the weekend consisted of a whole lot of relaxing and snuggling with Addison – Chris and his girlfriend’s, Maren, dog …

… And, we ended on a delicious note – sharing a grasshopper from Angler’s Haven, a popular local bar that’s right on the lake.

How did you spend the long weekend? Tell me below!
