apples and caves

Last weekend was our first weekend home (and also alone) in months. We travel out of town every week for about 2-3 days so we really enjoyed being able to just relax.

The weather was just perfect and we started our day out by going to Appleberry Farm to pick apples and drink cider. We also had apple cider brats, and if you know me you know that I will not touch a brat EVER...except for this day. They were secretly tasty.

After apple picking we went to Cave of the Mounds in Blue Mounds, WI. Have I ever told you how much I love WI? mom gave us a gift certificate to the Cave for Christmas when she found out we were moving here. It was the perfect gift! We want to go again.

What's new with you guys? Not a lot here, mostly just working. I'm really happy with my new job (more on that later) and I'm going to be ending my other job soonish.

Lately I've been into fashion...ummm, maybe too into it? I have a new inspiration folder just for looks that I love sitting on my desktop. I guess it's because it's something I can have here and now whereas when I save photos of interiors (i have a lot of those...) I have to just wait till we have a house till they come in handy. Anyway, I'm having fun with it all but now I'm addicted to clothes. And shoes. Luckily we have some great thrift shops around and I am good at knowing when to stop. Whew.

I love caves, loads of them around here, great ones in KY. although being from CA I get a little freaked about earthquakes. Ok, so this is not an earthquake zone, but the largest recorded earthquake in the US occured along the Miss. River (about 100 years ago), so it could happen.

A woman at my work once told me that I always dressed so "hip" + all I could think was, head to toe second-hand.

Sometimes it's so nice to not travel around or meet with many people, just stay home and relaxing! Apple picking sounds like fun :)
