Can I just say that there is nothing better than coming home after a long day at work (seeing Grandpa on the way) and then plopping on the couch and crossing things off my to-do list. I knocked out our first wedding thank you notes, paid a few bills, and am now watching The Bachelorette while I catch up with you! Win!

Before leaving Iowa on Monday night, my dad and Patti threw Josh and I a wedding shower brunch with our family there. My aunts and cousins are hilarious so we all had a great time. And the food was so yummy! Plus... mimosas. Need I say more?

My sweet, sweet brother and sister-in-law got Josh and I fun light up glasses and a crown to wear during the festivities. Being the ham's we are, we gladly accepted and it provided us with some hilarious entertainment. Thanks Kevin and Kathy!

We dined at Caroline's at the Hotel Julian in Dubuque, IA. Seriously, it was amazing. Ellen was so sweet to share her order with me so I could have sweet and savory. We split an omlettte and french toast. SO GOOD! Caroline's was really yummy and the portions were huge. We were all starving so we liked that. 

If you go, get the fries over the breakfast potatoes. You won't be sorry.

Little Josh and Big Josh were fast friends. Even if Big Josh did have to wear the crown.

P.S. As I'm sitting here on the couch typing this, I hear this hissing noise and I think, "What the heck is that?" Then I remembered, it was my eggs that I was hard boiling. Whooops. No idea if they are done or not. I guess I'll find out tomorrow. ;)


  1. Aww, fun! Looks like you guys had a great time!

    Also, I totally left eggs boiling for an hour once by accident, ha! They were a bit like rubber, but still edible. Hopefully yours were okay!

  2. Looks like your wedding shower was a lot of fun! Mimosas are the best :)
