Anniversary Weekend

So our one year anniversary was this past Saturday. During the week Jordan kept saying things like "I'm so excited for this weekend", and "This weekend is going to be the best weekend ever, except for our wedding". Don't get me wrong, I was excited for our anniversary too...but I felt like Jordan was really, really excited. My understanding of our plans were that Saturday night we would go somewhere nice for dinner in the city. We have been exploring Madison a little bit every weekend, and I assumed that we would continue on that trend.

Well. Jordan had other ideas.

He called me Friday, around 3:00. We talked for a little bit, and he mentioned that he would come home an hour early at 4:00. I asked him why, and he said: "Oh, I just thought we could get an early start on our weekend...because I booked us a room at a bed and breakfast for tonight and tomorrow night. You have one hour to pack". Totally caught me off guard.

We didn't go too far away-it was only about a half hour drive. It was really pretty. Basically everywhere in Wisconsin is surrounded by farmland, but this area was particularly farm-y. Typical of our exploits, we took zero pictures. There were a ton of trails to walk around on the property, and we went into a nearby town for their swiss festival. New Glarus was settled by a bunch of Swiss so they play that up a ton. When the town is as small as New Glarus, you have to distinguish yourself anyway you can. I mean, it isn't like small farm towns in Wisconsin are scarce. The swiss festival also seemed typical of our experiences in Wisconsin thus far-a ton of beer, cheese, and brats. It was fun to walk around the town, watch all the drunkards, and eat some good food.

I really enjoyed being whisked away. I told Jordan he could plan impromptu trips anytime he wanted.

There was a little boutique in town that was having a huge sale, so I was able to get this Vera Bradley baby bag for a fraction of it's actual cost.

It was a wonderful time, and I thought it was very sweet of Jordan to make those plans.


So. Stay tuned for that!
