"You Can't Terrace Anywhere Else,"isn't that the truth? I mean the UW-Madison terrace is one of the most amazing places on the planet (in the summer and early fall). There is beer (if you can drink), ice cream, sailing, and of course the past time of sitting around and doing nothing. All of this suits me, so it is perfect.

Resort Wear

Do I look like someones mother? I kind of think so...yet I still took these photos. Oh well, I call this outfit "Resort Wear" because what else would you wear this outfit to but a resort? Anyway, I am up in Wisconsin this week (not wearing this) and I felt this was apt for a mother enjoy herself at the spa.

University of Wisconsin

This was my last tour! How sad, I will miss the college atmosphere, and the tour guides who tell me how amazing their school is. But seriously, I feel like a chapter of my life is coming to an end. Here are some photos from Madtown.

One Pair, Three Ways

These shorts (H&M) aggravate me, yet somehow I enjoy wearing them. Yet I can never figure out what pieces to put them with. So here are three of my four go to outfits, the other is already on the blog (see: My Kind of Edgy). I don't even know if these look good together, but comment and let me know.

So the extent of my stay in Milwaukee included the airport, a lovely Hyatt Place, and two delicious frozen custard stops. We went to Kopp's when we arrived in the Dairy State and then Leon's the night before we left.

Crying in the Airport (aka PVD)...

But not because I'm happy to see someone or because I'm happy to be home. It's actually the opposite, why would anyone want to leave: the cool comforts of WI? The lovely spa? The American Club? There would be no reason, because it's that wonderful.

Sure, I'll get to sleep in my own bed, and catch up on my favorite TV shows, but is it worth it? Ehhh. PVD (post vacation depression) is setting in, and I'm not sure how long it will last! 

I really am not looking forward to working totally and completely on summer homework, but that is the price I pay for a good education. I hope your Sundays aren't as sad as mine-xoxo HP. 

***I just love this photo, even if it isn't appropriate for the story.

BFF Bracelets

Friendship bracelets are amazing, and what else are you going to do in the dog days of summer then revisit your middle school years?
