Living the dream: babysitting, MKE Art Museum wedding, families, wood carving, food, and a girls’ weekend…

Sometimes I feel like I am really living the dream.
Babysitting for my friends’ totally sweet little babe is one of those times. Halle, you’re the cutest!

We went for a walk and I saw this birch tree that creeped me the heck out. I usually run on this path, and I’m obviously so fast that I never saw this until I was on a leisurely walk.

Mother Nature, you’re hilarious.
I can’t get enough of her cute face.

After babysitting, B and I headed over to Lambeau courtesy of my sole sister, Nancy! B brought Devon to keep him company. First preseason game, we like to start the season as early as possible 🙂

I’m no longer surprised at anything that I see at Lambeau. Looking forward to a great Packer season!
A little work was done in my office to help me be more productive…

I spent a little time with my therapist hairstylist…

Found some “ancient” technology…

…and headed over to the Lounge @1800 for a delicious lunch specialty shoot.

Gosh, those sweet potato tater tots were sent from heaven. They had a spicy homemade marmalade, oh… Yum.
The weekend of August 17th, we headed down to Milwaukee to capture the absolutely gorgeous Milwaukee Art Museum wedding of Jen and Josh. The guys started their morning with golf, and as usual, the ladies started with manicures and hairstyles 🙂

Congratulations, friends! I love that last image… With the Big Dipper over MKE’s skyline. 🙂
We also loved Randy’s floral designs, as always. Simply stunning.
We slept soundly on Saturday night, then headed over to the work with the wildly adorable Koltz family on Sunday morning.

We loved working with you guys! Thank you for playing in the wet grass and braving the bugs with us 🙂
The last week of August was filled with fun, from a wood-carving-shoot-turned-my-first-wood-carving-class…

Look at my piece! I admit, I had a little help…

I did some hot weather running, of course. Trying out some new clothes for fall races!

We celebrated Andy’s birthday 🙂

I closed out the month of August with a fantastic girls’ weekend up at my best friend, Nikki’s cabin. I’ve known this beautiful woman for a loooong time…

We spent time on the pontoon, cruising around the lake, a hilly country run, bonfires, hot tubbing, a trip to the Amish store, tubing, good food, and lots of laughing.
