{almost} Wordless Weekend

by Holly on February 6, 2011

in meet-up,silliness,wordless weekend

Amy. Megan. Me.

Twenty-four hours in good ol’ Madison, Wisconsin.

And go!

***note #1: Megan voiced her fear of walking/driving/ice fishing on frozen lakes. Like a good friend, I forced us to walk 50 feet out on Lake Mendota to help dear Megan conquer said fear.

***note #2: Apparently, pole dancing is, “…no longer just for strippers.”

***note #3: “Balls 4 Life” engraved on the table = adopted theme of the weekend.

***note #4: This is Amy’s very first bite of fried cheese curds ever. A life-changing moment.

***note #5: I swear Amy + Megan voluntarily slept together on my full size futon. And by slept together, I mean only spooning + sleeping.

What did YOU do this weekend? Any weekend themes other than “Balls 4 Life” to report? Sharing is caring!


Matt February 6, 2011 at 2:06 pm

I worked all weekend!

Did you see yourself in my post?

Mellissa February 6, 2011 at 2:10 pm

There is nothing better than a weekend with girlfriends! I escaped Minnesota and went to Phoenix for a few days, my feet are seeing sunlight for the first time in months!

Mara @ What's For Dinner? February 6, 2011 at 2:10 pm

I made 100 cupcakes. Yeah, that’s about it.

chelsey @ clean eating chelsey February 6, 2011 at 2:12 pm

First time having cheeseballs? Such a life changing moment for sure – when I used to work in food services in college, I dominated these bad boys.

Christine @ Merf In Progress February 6, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Your weekend theme is so much better than mine. My weekend has revolved around sickness, mine and my children. Thank goodness my husband is relatively healthy to take care of the rest of us.

dana @ my little celebration February 6, 2011 at 2:40 pm

Mmmm, Balls 4 life. Such a profound statement.

Although I have no balls to report, I did host a delicious dinner party for friends last night complete with homemade pizza, salad, wine and some life-altering cupcakes. It was certainly blog-worthy : )

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) February 6, 2011 at 2:41 pm

fear of walking/driving/ice fishing on frozen lakes = growing up in MN, I had uncles who had houses, i.e. their fishing huts, on the ice. So i am not afraid :)

I love this post! And that I am glancing at all that snow…from afar! :)

kathleen February 6, 2011 at 2:55 pm

i’ve never tried fried cheese curds either…

Tracy @ Commit To Fit February 6, 2011 at 2:57 pm

Fantastic pic of the ceiling of that building, just beautiful!

Madeline - Greens and Jeans February 6, 2011 at 2:57 pm

GAH! Three of my favorites in one post?! Jealoussssss. Move that party eastward!

julie February 6, 2011 at 4:02 pm

with all this damn snow i want to buy a pair of those snow shoe things that you put on your shoes those things that eskimos have haha

mmm my weekend was realllly relaxing! i got school work done, chilled around the house, watched a couple of good movies and ate amazing chocolate haha

Katie February 6, 2011 at 4:32 pm

Love this post! Super jealous of you ladies living it up in my hometown! I miss Madison so much. And deep fried cheese curds. I can only imagine what Amy was saying…

Sarah @ onelovesarah February 6, 2011 at 5:15 pm

what a fun 24hrs. I love weekends with girlfriends and themes :)

Low February 6, 2011 at 5:28 pm

Quite possibly the best blogger weekend ever. I am green with envy.

Kate (What Kate is Cooking) February 6, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Fried cheese curds? I’m moving to Madison!

Heather (Perspective Is Everything) February 6, 2011 at 6:30 pm

since moving from Wisco to Seattle last October, I’ve missed out on the narsty cold, snowy winter. i do NOT miss it.
but, i would LOVE to be there today :(
nobody really cares about the Packers here and the Seahawks suck….although Matt Hasselbeck does go to my church :D

Jess February 6, 2011 at 6:35 pm

Lovin’ this post–those cheese curds look so good!!

Andrea@WellnessNotes February 6, 2011 at 6:43 pm

Looks like an awesome time! I really want to try cheese curds one day…

Our weekend was not nearly as exciting as yours, but we did go to the beach and the toddler decided to eat sand. Thought we had been WAY past that stage, but oh well…

Jenn L @ Peas and Crayons February 6, 2011 at 7:16 pm

awww yay! Looks like you ladies had a blast! <3 =)

Liz February 6, 2011 at 7:17 pm

Your life looks like so much fun! I made dinner for my family and boyfriend this weekend. It was actually the first meal for more than 2 people I’ve ever made completely solo, so I was pretty proud of that haha :)

Mackenzie @ Whatever, Gatsby February 6, 2011 at 7:23 pm

um, it’s official. i’m coming to visit you. i want in on the frozen lake action (i’ve watched “eternal sunshine of the spotless mind” too many times). and the balls 4 life. and basically all of the above.

also i’m totally loving the fact that the pole dancing ad is from a college. i just. i just can’t handle that (and might be considering transferring because of that. whoa man.)

Amy B @ Second City Randomness February 6, 2011 at 9:57 pm

It was such an awesome weekend! With the exception of the little sleep break we took, I can’t believe it was nonstop conversation! You ladies rock!

Balls 4 Life. Holla’…

Jessica February 6, 2011 at 11:01 pm

AAAH Lazy Jane scone! I need to get me another one of those! Perhaps this weekend…

Allison February 6, 2011 at 11:43 pm

Agh, looks like such a great weekend! I love your blog and I’m going to keep reading it no matter what but you’re making my heart ache for Madison. I would do anything for a Fat Squirrel and a huge pile of fries from Brasserie V… oh and a Bikram session at A Perfect Knot, and a good long run around downtown/campus. Shit balls, I love that town. Hope all is well! :)

Susan February 7, 2011 at 8:31 am

Gaaaah, so much fun! I got to talk to Megan for like two minutes at the Healthy Living Summit. Wish we could have hung out more! Also, I really want to try fried cheese curds. Maybe on top of poutine = the best of both worlds.

This weekend I got together with my Maritime friends and drank for 9 hours straight. It was a riot.

Sami February 7, 2011 at 9:37 am

nice title! haha. i’ve used this one SO many times…this weekend included! sometimes pictures just speak for themselves.

Little Bookworm February 7, 2011 at 9:38 am

Love the photos in this post (especially the fourth one – so pretty!), and sounds like you had an amazing weekend!

Erica D @ Gratitouille February 7, 2011 at 10:06 am

I still haven’t tried fried cheese curds, but Holly…I’m taking a stripper class while I’m in Vegas with friends in 2 weeks!! I am absurdly excited!!

Megan (Braise the Roof) February 7, 2011 at 11:00 am

I like how in the second picture of us on the lake it looks like you’re knocking me over. I would’ve gotten you back gooood. :) So much fun- and thank you for clarifying that Amy and I spooned and slept EXCLUSIVELY. My mother was relieved.

Nicole @ Geek Turned Athlete February 7, 2011 at 11:02 am

You guys looked like you had so much fun!! I miss girly sleepovers like that. ;)

Here is to fried cheese curds!

Gillian Young February 7, 2011 at 11:34 am

Your weekend looks so perfect- cozy, fun, and delliiicciiouuss. Sweet balls. My theme was: do what I want, when I want. This involved not cleaning, great food, and a lot of relaxing!

Michele February 7, 2011 at 12:43 pm

Although my weekend was not nearly as exciting, I can let you know that pole dancing classes are hella fun. :)

Katie February 7, 2011 at 12:56 pm

Ahahaha, balls for life. That’s hysterical.

I guess my theme for the weekend would be “sports” – went to a basketball game, worked out twice (not really a sport, I guess…but movement), and the super duper bowl.

Margaret February 7, 2011 at 2:15 pm


You don’t know me, but I started following your blog after my homegirl Madeline shared adventures with you during her half marathon. The fact that you can appreciate the glory of “Balls 4 Life” and even go so far as to dedicate your weekend to that theme reinforces your awesomeness.

Anywho, the reason I am commenting is to share this article with you: http://travel.nytimes.com/2011/02/06/travel/06overnighter-beer-drive.html?ref=dining

(Forgive me for my lack of Wisc geography, it’s likely you’re not anywhere close to there, but delicious beer is always worth an excursion)

Megan (The Runner's Kitchen) February 7, 2011 at 2:40 pm

I am so jeals of your fun weekend with Amy and Megan! Plus fried cheese curds!! Gahhh. I slept A LOT this weekend. And drank caramel hot chocolate that tasted like a melted carmello bar. MMM.

Katie February 7, 2011 at 3:07 pm

I have never had fried cheese curds : p I feel so sheltered ! lol!

What a BALL full of Fun weekend you girls had ; ) love it! xoxo

Tamar February 7, 2011 at 6:02 pm

Ahhh I miss fried cheese curds! I’m so jealous. Is that a fried walleye sandwich? The pictures on Lake Mendota are amazing.

Tamar February 7, 2011 at 6:04 pm

Oh, and this weekend I went to THE Packers bar in NYC to watch the game. Cheeseheads take over Manhattan!
