travels and such

It's been a busy couple of weeks for our little house recently!  And really...I don't see it slowing down too much  anytime in the near future.  Sometimes staying busy is nice, especially when, for the most part, we're not really "busy" people [you know those people - that never seem to have a free minute and always have things going on.  we don't like to live that way...].  But it also can get to you after a while.

Recap - I was in Illinois for work last week.  Had a GREAT time.  Who knew you could like your co-workers SO much??  I love mine, and just wish I had the chance to work with them regularly!  I got back from there late last Thursday night, and Friday afternoon (after working 1/2 day) Brad and I took off for Green Bay to see -->

The Green Bay Packers at Lambeau!  If you follow football at all, Lambeau Field in Green Bay is a legendary venue.  We had a great time visiting some of Brad's relatives - spending time at the Pro Shop, and also getting to visit WG&R, which is owned by Brad's family.  More importantly, we visited August Haven, which is a new furniture store they just opened.  I wish I had pictures of the place, but the only one I can find on Google is this one -

Their furniture was just gorgeous.  I walked in and fell in love.  It's like a Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware all in one.  

We left Green Bay on Sunday morning at 3am, got home around 8:30am and both were at work by 9am.  Needless to say...Monday was a rough day and I am just now getting over a pounding headache that started that morning!

But, my exciting news is that we're going to NASHVILLE!  I found tickets on Southwest Air for $65 ONE WAY from Minneapolis.  So, for Brad and I to book flights there (from a Friday-Monday, no less!) it only cost $340 for both of us!  Seriously??  You can't hardly book one plane ticket for that cost, much less two!  

I found these awesome rates via Airfare Watchdog - I set up Instant Alerts and yesterday it popped up that they had super cheap tickets, so I told Brad about it last night and couldn't believe it when he said, "Let's book it" cause I am forever throwing things at the wall and seeing which ones stick (meaning, trips/flights)!  It will be my 30th birthday present, and I really can't think of a better way to celebrate than by visiting my favorite city!  
Funny thing is that I'm always trying to convince Brad that we need to move there, so last night we were getting ready for bed and I told him, "This will be the 3rd time we've been to Nashville in a year!  I bet it's a sign from the Lord that we're supposed to move there."  And quick as that, he responds, "Or it's a sign that we can live HERE and just visit there a lot."  UGH.  He always gets me on those little smart comments :)  

Oh, and because I always appreciate it when other people do this, here's some new songs for a workout playlist -- 

1.) We Found Love - Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris
2.) Beautiful People - Chris Brown
3.) Breathing - Jason Derulo
4.) Without You - David Guetta feat. Usher

Happy Hump Day!
