Last weekend I went to Door County with a group of 14 friends, seriously the best girl's weekend ever. We spent a couple of nights in Sister Bay and had the most fun, silly time you could ever imagine and it was so needed for all of us. We're all moms, with lots and lots of kids, so getting away is never an easy thing. But we made it happen (with 4 pregnant mamas between us and 1 tiny newborn!) and it was a weekend we'll not soon forget. It does a girl so much good to spend time away with friends and I'm thankful for these babes. Love to you all!
So the picture below tells a thousand words as we decided to hashtag our weekend on Instagram, so we could enjoy each others pictures. And this dessert pictured is called a "Better than Sex" cake which I'm assuming is not a dessert unique to Wisconsin, though for all I know, it is! Ha! They offer it at one of our favorite local restaurants and it is TO DIE FOR! So one of our lovely ladies made it for our weekend away and we cleverly thought, let's hashtag our weekend #betterthansexweekend? Cause I mean, why not? :)
So we left the hashtag on the gram so as not to deeply offend all our extra church friends on Facebook but here I am sharing on Blogger, so wink, wink. All in jest husbands, all in jest. We do think you're way more awesome than friends or cake. ;) ;)
So let's begin with Anderson Dock in Ephraim. Wow, what an incredibly cool place! We stopped at several little beach-y spots to take pictures but this place was really fantastic. Our spring is taking ages to actually feel spring-y and you can see how the water iced over the rocks and grass (below). We're ready for warm sunshine up here in Wisco land but this sight really was beautiful!
My sister made sure we had a confetti picture! She's always prepared with props for these sorts of occasions. No, really, we had a baby shower at Chop in Sister Bay the night before and Daena had decorated the table with colorful eggs filled with confetti. Perfect for pictures the day after.
Adding our graffiti to the wall before we took off for brunch at White Gull Inn. No paint handy so they grabbed their makeup pens.
Here are a few iPhone pictures too.
Four of us went one day early and had a little extra relaxation time to ourselves. We spent most of that time eating out at lots of great restaurants and taking pictures on the beach. :) Here we are enjoying pizza and the best cheese curds you've EVER tasted at Wild Tomato in Fish Creek.
Here's Anderson Warehouse on the first evening, before it froze over. We stopped to enjoy the view and take more silly pictures. ;)
