Quick Update

Some quick highlights from the last week.

-Nate and I had a blast at the Fosse wedding last weekend. It was at St. Croix National Golf Course in Somerset, and it was beautiful!

-I went to Duluth last Saturday for Amy's bachelorette party. It was so great to see the girls again and go out in Canal Park.

-I've been working at the Oakbrook Companies as a temp property accountant. I found out today that unless someone quits, I'm just a temp for a couple months.

-I had a really good interview today for a Financial Reporting Accountant at an insurance company. I'm really interested in this job! It's permanent full-time, and they have amazing benefits.

-I really like living with Nate. It's so nice to be able to see him every day.

That's all for now.
Love Always,
P.S. I am determined to finish unpacking and organizing this weekend.

So Thankful

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who helped and/or came to the benefit on Sunday. Every donation was so greatly appreciated! It was a great success.

I absolutely loved seeing everyone too. There were sooooo many people that I haven't seen in YEARS. It was wonderful to catch up with everyone.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

And the biggest "Thank You" of all to my friend Tiffany. She undertook this idea and organized the benefit. Thank you, sweet girl, for being an amazing friend.

Love Always,

Another Vacation

Nate and I got to go on vacation again, July 24th-29th. We went to the Florida Keys with Nate's family.

  • Limo ride to dinner in South Beach and delicious food Friday night
  • Beautiful house in Marathon (Side note: the guy who owned the house was the Northwest pilot who invented wheeled luggage)
  • Key West is a fun place! We explored Duvall Street and all the shops. Nate and I said we'd like to go back there.
  • Nate's parents rented a boat for a day, so we went snorkeling, saw a bunch of dolphins, and went fishing off Key West. A bunch of firsts for me, I'd never seen dolphins or fished in the ocean before.
  • It was roasting hot in Key West, but Nate, Nick, and I went parasailing. It was a blast! I stopped being a chicken and just did it.
  • Despite being stuck in Memphis, we went to Corky's and had some delicious barbeque ribs.


  • Wicked thunder storms a lot of the time, but we still had fun!
  • Nate and I had to spend Wednesday night in Memphis, after missing our flight because of storms in Miami. I will be packing a toothbrush, deodorant, and change of clothes in my carry-on from now on. There's only one flight from Memphis to Madison every day, and it's at 7:00 pm. Nate had to work at 10:00 pm that night. Everything would've been okay except our flight was delayed, and we didn't take off until 9:00 pm. Poor guy was so tired the next morning!
