I laugh at the title of this post - in my line of work, R&R means "recruitment and retention", but this time, I'm using it for its true meaning: "rest and relaxation"! Ryan and I are headed to LaCrosse, Wisconsin for the weekend. Why LaCrosse?, you ask. Well, we went to school down there for 3 years and when Ryan's company gave him an all expenses paid local trip for Christmas, we decided to go back to LaCrosse. We will be staying downtown on the river, which I'm excited for. When we lived in LaCrosse, our apartment was within walking distance of downtown, but not in downtown, so it will be a neat treat.
Although we don't have anything planned, we hope to meet up with old friends, shop at a farmer's/flea market, eat at our favorite restaurants (Fayze's here we come!!) and shop at some of our favorite stores that they don't have in Minneapolis/St. Paul. We'll also enjoy observing the changes that have taken place over the last few years on the campus and around the city. It's a peaceful place to live - well, if you're not living in a college apartment!
Sorry for the lack of posts - if you really need to know, we had pizza on Tuesday and grilled burgers last night with our friend, Aaron. Aaron is heading to London for a month and stopped by to get our recommendations (we used to live in London for awhile). We are very jealous!
So, anyway, we'll be back and cooking on Monday and probably tired from eating out so much.
I do have one question before I go: What summer vacations do you have planned?
Have a great weekend!!
