happy weekend of memorializing

by Holly on May 27, 2011

in holidays

On this most important Memorial Day 2011, we must remember to memorialize.

Obvs {hence the name}.

We must memorialize those who have fought and given their lives while in military service to the United States. Memorialize the fact that we are so lucky to live in a country where almond butter, Fig Newmans and maca powder run aplenty in overpriced organic grocery stores. And most importantly, memorialize the fact that Madison, WI is home to the World’s Largest Bratfest.

I went last year.

And I went again this year, thanks to my lovely boss who demanded our office take the afternoon off to start the holiday weekend early.

So go on, leave work and enjoy your Memorial Day.

And if you find yourself in Wisconsin this weekend, you can find me here – eating brats, drinking beer and memorializing.

Come join the fun.

Guuuurl… I would have traveled to Wisconsin for the World’s Largest Brat Fest. Eat a bat and drink a couple cold ones for me.

Braaaaats. I think I’m officially a Midwesterner now because the idea of Brat Fest made me WAY too happy. Amy and I are playing around Chicago this weekend- I hope you can come play with us later in the summer! Happy Memorial Day!

Just one of the many reasons why Wisconsin is amazing.

Katy @ fitinheels May 30, 2011 at 9:53 am

I’m considering moving to the States for this festival alone…
