Brides, I’ve got a bone to pick with you, and it involves footwear.

Every time I see a blog post featuring a wedding with the bride and/or bridesmaids wearing TOMS or flip flops, I want to punch someone in the face.

Why? Well, let me tell you.

A) Neither is appropriate footwear for a special occasion. And your wedding is the definition of a special occasion. And B) they don’t go with a wedding dress. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got pairs of both. I wear them for activities like floating the river, going grocery shopping, and getting the mail. Missing from that list? Getting married.

What’s that? They’re comfy? So are sweatpants, but you’re not wearing those to walk down the aisle, are you? (Dear God, I hope not.) There is a wide variety of ballet flats to choose from if you’re not comfortable in heels or want to change mid-way through the dance party. Even if you’re having a casual beach wedding, there are so many cuter options than rubber flip flops. Here, it took me one minute to find these. You’re welcome, slob.

Fall has arrived, and I am loving it! We spent this week in Chicago, and I got to check out a few apartments. It got me really excited for the move, but we’re waiting until one of us has a job offer to lock anything down. This whole fiscal responsibility thing is great and all, but I want to decorate!

Have a fantastic weekend!

This weekend is one of celebrations! We are heading to Manitowoc tomorrow for the wedding of one of Tyler’s oldest friends. Then on Sunday we are helping my mom blow out her birthday candles one day early. Lots of excitement. Oh, and I brought my wedding dress home today! It’s taking a lot of willpower to not put it on and dance around for a while.

Germany is one of the many, many places on my travel list.

Who doesn’t want to drink beer and eat sausage all day? (That is what you do there, right?)

Lucky for me, given the lack of Bavarian travel plans in my near future, Milwaukee is a hot bed for all things German – including a new beer garden!

This past weekend, my family packed a picnic of cheese and sausage and headed over to Estabrook Park. There was polka music, liters of beer, kids playing, dogs lounging, and beautiful weather. It was the perfect Labor Day weekend activity – relaxing and jolly.

If you are in the area and have some time, I highly recommend checking this place out.
