Weary weekender

Lake looks update: The weekend away was just what the doctor ordered. Marcus has been traveling for work a lot lately, so it was nice to spend some quality time together during our weekend trip to Lake Okoboji.

We hit the road Friday after work and just had to make a pit stop in Marcus’ college town, Storm Lake (go Beavers!), so that he could show me all of his favorite haunts including the restaurant he used to work at, The Boathouse.


Beautiful drive, tasty eats.

Even though it was rainy, I was up and at it on Saturday so that I could get in a workout and head out to do a little exploring before the wedding festivities started later in the evening.

The storm clouds parted just in time for the beautiful outdoor ceremony. The bride was glowing and the groom was handsome and we danced the night away.

No rest for the weary as we were up early on Sunday to head to Sibley, Iowa to check out the POST OFFICE THAT WE BOUGHT! Yes, we bought a post office. When I type that it sounds quite ridiculous I know, but it’s true. We are proud co-owners of the Sibley Post Office building and it is quite the 60s gem.

This baby is ours!

We figured we might as well celebrate our purchase by stopping at La Juanita’s (another of Marcus’ Storm Lake faves) on our way back to Des Moines, and cheers-ing each other with bottled Cokes.

Tacos and Cokes – not a bad way to end a great weekend.

All the weekend’s excitement has left me tired and yearning for the upcoming three-day weekend. Do you have any plans?

To-Do lists: I love the feeling of putting a check mark in a box.
