It was a dark and stormy morning…
I love mornings like this 🙂 It’s supposed to hit almost 80 degrees today (wh-what?) with lots of rainshowers before plummeting into the 50s the next few days. Crazy Wisconsin weather!
I’ve been looking at wedding websites trying to get a feel for what I should be doing. We’re still not decided on if we want to do something more traditional here in town or if it would work better for the two of us to scoot off to Mexico alone. Way too many decisions. I like the idea of getting married next spring, which is putting some pressure on me as well to make decisions.
Last night Ben and I went to Lambeau to check out their facilities. We looked at prices online and while the rooms aren’t exactly cheap, if we brought in our own caterer, it might actually work out just fine and be a pretty awesome venue.
It is just so cool to live in a city that has a stadium!
We got to walk all around the upper levels and see the various ceremony rooms and reception areas.
It was almost spooky walking though all the levels when there was no one there. It makes everything look drastically different – and open!
One option even allowed you to get married outside on the balcony!
Can you imagine that view for wedding pictures? Ha ha!
While it isn’t exactly a “romantic” wedding place, it would have been a lot of fun for guests. Just as we started giving one another encouraging glances, they were dashed. They don’t let you bring in a caterer and the cheapest meal is ridiculously priced and not exactly family-friendly (not everyone likes lemon and asparagus).
So now we’re planning to make a list of possible local options and then go look at them. If anything jumps out and looks good, then we’ll go with that. And I’m telling myself, or trying to, not to get stressed out about this. If someplace gets booked, we’ll just try someplace else. It will all work out.
After we got back from Lambeau I took off for a quick walk. I found out thank a loop around the house on some back streets covers exactly 2 miles. I wasn’t a speed demon or anything, I sauntered pretty slowly, but knocked off the first 2 miles of the year. Hurray – biking and walking mileage on the chart! 🙂 The weather was great and people were out and about everywhere. I think the whole town has been enjoying the past few days of decent temps. It’s been fantastic!
I sprayed more rabbit-b-gone (my term) and I’m hoping with the next several days of rain that it will somehow stick. I could see some disasterous results happen during the rain. In fact, a rather plump rabbit was poking around by the shrubs when I came home last night.
Have a terrific Tuesday and if you have any wedding planning tips, send em my way!
