Memorial Day 2014

How was your Memorial Day? Did you do anything fun? I spent the first three days of the weekend at work. It was interesting, to say the least. I had Monday off though, so I spent the morning relaxing, and my mom and I went up north in the afternoon.

In the morning I worked on some writing and I did laundry and painted my toenails using OPI's You're Such a Budapest. After lunch, I colored a picture and hung out waiting for my mom to call me to say that she was ready to go.

Our first stop (just south of Egg Harbor) was Bay Trading Company, which is an antique store with lots of little booths. This is where I bought my set of goldenrod and white Pyrex bowls! I didn't buy any this time though.

We drove into Egg Harbor, and my mom wanted to look at some of the eggs that they have on display for the summer. At least one of these buildings is the Cupola House.

I just really liked taking pictures of the flowers!

Here are two of the eggs on display!

I love all of the old buildings! This is the Cupola House. The detail is so pretty.

Some more flowers! I love all of the bright colors, especially the purple tulips. We also checked out a couple stores, including Greens 'n Grains and the Pink Umbrella. My mom wanted a snack, so we headed a little bit farther north, and we stopped at Wood Orchard Market. She didn't find what she was looking for there, but I got some honeycrisp apple chips and a postcard. We decided to continue north, and I wanted to go to Wild Tomato for dinner, so we ended up there for an earlier dinner.

We had a pizza with ham and pineapple. Their pizzas are woodfired, and taste so fresh. The pineapple was really sweet, and the ham was in big chunks instead of little slices. It was so delicious. We felt bad that we couldn't finish it, and we would have taken it with us, but I didn't want to chance getting food poisoning because of the car temperature, so I hope that waiter put it in the fridge for himself like he said he would. There were going to be scattered thunderstorms, according to the weather app on my phone, and it started to sprinkle as we left.

My mom wanted to stop at the ShopKo Hometown in Sister Bay, because she was looking for a curtain. I didn't really want to go in there, but I looked around at the kitchen stuff anyway. I want to get some thicker dishtowels. I ended up buying a shelving unit that I wanted for my laundry room/pantry, a new pair of Nikes, and a set of glass Pyrex containers. The Nikes and Pyrex were both on clearance, and I scored such a great deal on the Pyrex!

Of course, you can't go to Sister Bay and not take pictures of the goats on the roof at Al Johnson's! There were four of them up there, but these two were the funniest.

Because of the little bit of the storm that just passed through, the sky looked really cool, so we walked across to the marina. It wasn't as dark as it looks in the first picture, but that's how magical it felt.

On our way south, we had to stop at Wilson's in Ephraim for dessert.

Their ice cream is from Cedar Crest, which in my opinion, is the best for ice cream shops. The summer before my senior year of high school, I worked at a candy store in downtown Sturgeon Bay, and the ice cream that they had there was also Cedar Crest. I got the Caramel Collision {caramel ice cream with swirls of caramel and caramel cups}, which is a flavor we always had at the candy store, and I remember sneaking spoonfuls of it throughout the summer. Wilson's puts a jelly bean on the top of the scoop of ice cream, but my mom told the girls that I could have hers so I got two. (:

I love all of the little details of this vintage diner.

We headed south again to go home, and when we got into Egg Harbor, one of our friends was driving in front of us. I was so confused when it appeared that he was waving at no one on the side of the road, but then I realized that he was waving behind him at us, and then I realized who it was. haha.

We went to Target when we got to Sturgeon Bay, and I bought cling wrap, washi tape, and mascara. I was looking for a racerback tank top, but I didn't find any that I liked. I then needed a car wash (even though it was supposed to rain more) because of the dead bugs on my windshield, so we went to Shell for gas and a car wash. My mom wanted to get a copy of the Peninsula Pulse, so we stopped at the Door County Visitor Bureau. They have some really cute rocking chairs on their front porch.

When I got home, I put away my new stuff and I put together the shelving unit for my laundry room. It's five shelves, and that's too tall, so I'm only using four of them. It's going to be nice to have some extra storage space.
