The National Mustard Museum, Madison fun with friends, and Ashley and Erik’s wedding

My dream has finally come true.

I went to the NATIONAL MUSTARD MUSEUM! It is located in Middleton, Wisconsin, and I secured a tour and case of personalized mustard.

I could barely contain my excitement. I love mustard! I watched a video about mustard in history, saw all kinds of antique mustard jars and tins, and learned about mustard use around the world. Mustard fields are a beautiful thing! Did you know that mustard has been used for centuries as medicine? I can’t wait to take a mustard bath after my next long run. 😉

I came home with sixteen jars of mustard, mustard powder, and whole mustard seeds, so I can make my own! Awesome.
We stayed at Amanda and Andy’s new apartment, and had one heck of a sleepover with our Delta Omicron college friends. Curtis, Mo, Josh, and I all went to market on the square on Saturday morning. It’s a big farmer’s market on Madison’s Capitol Square.

We had a lot of fun with our friends celebrating our Delta Omicron sister, Ashley, marrying the man of her dreams, Erik. Brian played in a saxophone quartet for the first time since college! I wasn’t allowed to take pictures during the ceremony, but if her photographer will let me buy one of the quartet and put it online, I will post it for you all to see. They sounded pretty awesome. 🙂

We hung out in the Union until it was time for the reception, and then we partied with our friends all night!
