A Week in My Life: Week 21

I've decided to move these posts up to Fridays instead of posting them on Saturday. Here's what the past week looked like:

Luis and I actually spent quite a lot of time at various beaches this week. The weather has been perfect, and we're taking advantage of my time off before I start working full-time. On a side note, Life of Pi is amaaaazing.

I got pretty sunburned... 

Downtown Kenosha is such a photogenic city! I love this...

I love old signs like this. On another note, I really want to go see a production at this theater!

Does anyone else's cat sleep on their back like this? Is this normal? Poor thing, her fur hasn't completely grown back in after her surgery.

We had one really rainy day this week, so I whipped up some (gluten-free) French toast! Yummm.

I don't know why but this Jimmy John's delivery guy really made us laugh. Not only was he speeding like crazy, but it was funny to see the sandwiches chilling in the little basket as he zoomed by. Freaky fast... 

I made some crazy-good pasta this week. It was the perfect balance of warmth and nuttiness (I love that word).

Tonight starts most of the graduation celebrations for Carthage College! So I'm heading to their New Alumni Convocation and Promenade dinner tonight. I can't believe it's done. Have a lovely weekend, everyone!


  1. i'm so jealous that you got to go to the beach! (it's been raining here for 2 weeks straight) and i'm even more jealous that you can go to a New Alumni convocation, haha. can't wait till i can go too ^^

  2. I am so ready for some beach action! If I don't make it to the beach this weekend - I'm at least going to sit by the pool!

  3. Reading on the beach is one of the best things in life! I love that part of Wisconsin- My grandparents live in Fond du Lac and it always feels like the town is still in the early sixties.

  4. I hope it clears up soon for you! We all need the sun :D And don't worry, you will be done sooner than you think. Once you finish the thesis, it seems like the rest zooms past so fast.

  5. Do it! The sun is so rejuvenating! I hope you can get to the beach :)

  6. That's so true. Reading itself is relaxing, and when you can do it on a beach, it's even better. Yeah Fond du Lac isn't too far away! I went to summer camp there a few times on Lake Winnebago :)

  7. A beach sounds great right now! Such lovely pictures! I really enjoy the old signs too :)

    Oooh I love old mid-century style signs as well!

  9. I'm a sucker for old signs as well. Anything old, really. And I am SO JEALOUS of your beach time! The weather here in Minnesota has been terrible. You enjoy that free time before you start working :)
