chicken salad. golf. pier.

After what felt like a week long celebration for the Fourth of July filled with “mixed drinks” (Summer Shandy + Berry Weiss = best mixed drink EVER), burgers, infamous steak tacos, and hours of games of Cranium… a relaxing weekend in Lake Geneva is just what I needed. Especially since the first half of the summer has been a whirlwind and has flown by since I’ve managed to keep mine and Danny’s schedule nice and FULL. Photo shoots, weddings, birthdays, housewarming parties, Groupon adventures (which I’m absolutely addicted to buying), and summer league co-ed volleyball/softball games [go Team Chicken Fingers!], have made the first half of the summer incredibly awesome, yet fly by way too fast.

Being that I am a crazy planner and a little bit of a control freak (qualities I’m not too proud of), I decided to switch it up a little bit and let Danny choose every single thing we did all weekend. Which he made sure to quote me on a few times throughout the weekend when I’d say I didn’t want to do something or make a face, “I thought this was a ‘do whatever Danny wants weekend,’” he’d taunt. Don’t get me wrong… I love Gordy’s, Smilin’ Dave, and Chuck’s… but this was a weekend away from what most people associate with Lake Geneva. My weekend was full of movies (I highly recommend Ted, and I highly don’t recommend Safehouse), getting my tan on at the pier with “the Hawk,” working on my water treading skills for my upcoming Utah trip…


…eating the best chicken salad in the world, cruising around on golf carts,

playing volleyball and golf with Danny (I made a pretty impressive 15ft. putt on a slanted green that I’m kind of proud of – I even saved the ball)…

…ice cream at Dairy Ripple, and just having an all-around fantastic time—none of which was planned by me 🙂

I am so, so lucky and extremely thankful to have a boyfriend whose family owns a house in Abbey Springs, and that they’re gracious enough to have me at their home whenever I can make it up there. It’s probably my favorite thing to do in the summertime, and I’m so glad that I have Danny to remind me to take some time to relax and enjoy myself. I’m even more lucky that he puts up with my crazy scheduling, and I hope he had as great a weekend as I did (I really hope he did since he planned it!).
