. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Weekend Getaway

October 10, 2012

Weekend Getaway

shirt: old navy (similar) pants: kohls  boots: dsw (similar)   scarf: made by my sister

Last weekend Chris and I spent three nights in Wisconsin Dells and had such a great time! This is one of the outfits I wore and I think it is one of my favorite outfits so far.  

It was SO good to get away and spend time together. 
The first day we were there we hiked around Devil's Lake.  
It was gorgeous! 


Despite being a little chilly we had such a great time hiking, sitting on the boulders and enjoying the beautiful fall scenery! 




I have to say that heights are not something I am too fond of and I was quite proud of myself for climbing up to this rock. 


We hiked on a path on the way up, but on the way down we crawled, jumped, went "bouldering" down these huge boulders. 
It's hard to tell in the picture how big and steep they were, but let me tell you that it was a lot of work. 


I really didn't mind it at the beginning.  Even enjoyed it. 
However, after about 20 minutes or so of doing it I was ready to be done!
Here is my I want to give up and just sit in these rocks picture:


That night we thought we'd be really cool and find a bar that had a happy hour, have some drinks, stay out late, you know, act our age?
Let's just say we ultimately failed after getting the first happy hour restaurant's time wrong, then finding out the next restaurant had closed, among other failures.  
I'll just tell you that we ended up eating at Culver's, being in our pajamas and bed by 10 and watching a movie. 


The second day we were there we walked around Wisconsin Dells and found a chili cook-off.
We got to taste lots of different chili and vote for our favorites. 
I only wish the tasting cups were about five times bigger. 


We also went to a winery that had a band playing and wine tasting. 
I loved it!

It was such a great weekend!





Pin It!

This looks like such a fun weekend! I also am not too fond of heights and think it is amazing that you ventured to the top of that boulder! I can also relate to the part about being in bed by ten and opting for a moving instead of a night out on the town! LOVE your blog!!

Katie, the pics are amazing!! I am afraid of heights too, but sometimes I make exceptions. Especially for views like this!! This outfit is one of my faves!! LOVE!!! Glad you two got away together!

That sounds like such an amazing time! I am totally jealous of the scenery, it's still basically summer in Florida. I'm also so jealous of the chili cook-off, that's one of my favorite fall/winter foods! PS- love your outfit. The boots and scarf are so fun with the bright pants.
