I got to go to Noah's Ark

Got the gang together!! And we went to Noah's Ark for a day of fun in the sun and grilling/tailgating. Tailgating should be a staple point in all fun group activities and it's something new that we added last year for our NA trip. Socializing and hanging out!

The bridesmaid dress arrived finally! It fits, but is a might big. Thank God it's corseted and they can strap me in tight. Funny thing - they have to take 3 inches off it. Granted I'm wearing flats but I was still surprised. It comes with straps and looks good with or without them. I know people are ITCHING for pictures. There are no gloves or big bows like some had hoped, but the ladies at the store say it would look great shortened and turned into a party dress too...

Itching is the word for July/August with all the mosquitoes. Planning some hiking/outdoors this Friday in the Baraboo and bringing the big spray.
With the wedding, work, and gym I am staying busy. Gym at least 3 days a week. work 4-5. and well wedding it's on again off again.

Exciting trips coming up. I've got a trip to Appleton/Door County planned. Finally - never been there (DR Cnty) and we'll be seeing wineries too. Wine/Harvest Festival (girls only) and prepping an afternoon/grilling trip to a state park for the church I go to. Also, looking to visit the Galena area weekend after the wedding to check out some stuff. I find it's easier to make these plans and do them on my own. It's less disappointing when I can't find someone to go and adds to my experience and strength of doing things on my own.

Plans are in the works to start structuring my big Alaskan trip next year. It's been 4 years since I've been there (5 by the time trip rolls around). I'm picturing my suitcase filled with coffee and hip waders. 3 hour time difference. And have to admit kinda scared that I'd be the one to hook the 200 lb halibut. Uhm yeah - how am I going to get that in the boat?!

NEwho - looking to start dating and meeting people again. Should prove interesting as I don't know how to meet new people. Good luck to me. Darn being one of those people who loves instant gratification.
