Yummy Balls

Get your mind out of the gutter people!

I am talking about some melt-in-your mouth amaretto and rum balls my friend Iwona made me. Look at these! They are even more delicious than they look. Oh and that rum packs a punch...mmmhmmm.

I have my ups and downs with this blog and I am consistently inconsistent with my posting. I sometimes feel defeated or overwhelmed when I haven't posted for a period of time. Other than that, this blog has brought good people into my life (you know who you all are!). Thank you everyone who reads this blog and thank you Iwona! Your balls are delicious.

These are a few of my favorite...ornaments

The post title says it all. I'm feeling quite festive and cheerful so I figured I'd share some of my favorite ornaments. Happy Holidays!

Sprecher Brewery

I swear I feel like Zane Lamprey lately with all these blogs about wine and/or beer. I still have things to post about my Michigan Winery tour. I blogged about my first and second stops and still have five more. Oh boy. Eventually they'll show up.

Since my Milwaukee visit is fresh on my mind, I thought I'd blog about my visit to Sprecher Brewery. I've been there once before and enjoyed it. The tour is $5 and you get four samples and an etched glass.

The tour isn't terribly exciting. Although I love this painting inside the brewery:

I also love this, my tickets to free samples:

Slurp slurp.

Hoestly, I'm most excited about their sodas. I'm not a big soda drinker but we did pick up a few bottles for the occasional soda craving. Yum x 10.

If you are ever in Milwaukee, check out Sprecher Brewery!

It's been ages since I've blogged! I swear I say that all the time. Times have been busy but I've got a lot to say and share so more posts coming soon. This week has been amazing. It was Rob's birthday this past Saturday and we went to Milwaukee for a little weekend getaway. Lot's of fun as usual. Tori was playing in Chicago on Rob's Bday and since we were in Milwaukee we (obviously) didn't get to see her. BUT...I was able to attend Tori's taping of the Rosie Show Monday. Amazingness on so many levels. I'll be devoting an entire post to that experience. I'm still on cloud 9.

So much happiness. :D

PS...I snapped the above picture outside the Hi Hat Garage in Milwaukee. Delicious mimosas and bloody mary's and brunch foods.
