Hello, Monday! For once, we actually had plans practically every day this weekend, and it was so nice to be out enjoying the shining sun and warm spring-like temperatures.

Friday, we took a little scenic drive through the country to venture to the Johnson Creek Premium Outlets – if you’re near/around the Madison, Wis., area, the stores are loaded and ready-to-go with cute warm-weather wear. I picked up a few sundresses and tops at Loft, some athleisure wear and a $200 coat for $30 (score!) at Tommy Hilfiger, and another dress and this top from Gap. The minute I saw it, I knew it was coming home with me – it’s flannel, but still lightweight enough for this time of year, and I’m pretty much a sucker for anything that’s pink and buffalo check.

We’ve recently met a few more of our neighbors, so Saturday night we headed out to dinner with one of the couples. We decided on one of our favorite spots, TJ’s in Oshkosh, for dinner, and the Dijon-crusted salmon with Parmesan risotto did not disappoint! If you follow me on Snapchat (msinthemidwest), then you probably saw that we also stopped at the Gas Hole, which is a bar attached to a gas station … only in Wisconsin, right?

Although yesterday we hibernated most of the day due to the gloomy weather and rain (and the horrible time change), it still was nice to get caught up around the house and prepare for the week ahead.

How was your weekend?

    I love that this is pink plaid, such a great way to bring a flannel into the spring when it’s still chilly! Sounds like you had such a nice weekend. I’m planning on hitting up the outlets this week to see what I can score with some remaining Christmas gift cards – win win!

    • Thanks, girl! That’s what I thought when I found this top, too – the color is perfect for spring, but the flannel still keeps me warm when it gets chilly at night. I hope that you have luck at the outlets!

    Adorable outfit! Glad your weekend was so great! Surprisingly Daylight Savings it me hard today, not yesterday! At least it’s still light outside at 6pm!!

    • I’m with you! I’m still adjusting to the time change (mostly at night when I can’t fall asleep!), but I definitely won’t complain about it being light out later.

    • That would be hilarious if you’ve heard of the same one, although I’m sure there are plenty of others. It actually was a fun bar!

    • I couldn’t done way more damage than I did at the outlets – I had to exercise some self-control. 🙂

  • It has been 84 years since it stopped raining in Wisconsin, so it seemed necessary to document the occasion. 💁🏼‍♀️ #thursdayvibes #loveloft
  • #Bookworms, rejoice! This is our kinda day! 📚 On #WorldBookDay, I simply want to say thank you to all authors. Your characters, stories and words change my life daily, and I can’t imagine a life without them. Happy reading to all! #bookstagram

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland

  • I can’t stop obsessing over this book! It’s Behind-the-Music meets Almost Famous, and I had to constantly remind myself that I wasn’t reading an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine. I just love when a book comes around that makes me fall further in love with reading than I already am. Have you read it? What are you #currentlyreading? #bookworm #bookstagram
