Happy list!

As some of you know, 
the hubs is spending 
the next 3 weeks in Austria...
which makes me both happy for him, 
and a little green with envy. ;-) 

To try and combat that, 
here's a happy list! 

Here's what's been making me happy lately! 

1. Roadtrips to visit friends. 
Our friends Sam and Ashley moved to New Haven 
for Ashley to attend grad school. 
(that's right, Yale baby!)

We got the chance to visit last weekend 
and had a great time getting lost 
in the woods and exploring Connecticut. 

The odds weren't in our favor 
with the copy of the paper plate map. 

So we did as all good Midwesterners would do
and shot pellet guns at paper targets
instead of tying to find the rock quarry 
that was somewhere between "4x4 road", "log road" 
and what we aptly named, 
"don't go down this road without a jeep road"...

We *may* have went down anyways...
and were lucky we didn't pop a tire. 
For reals. 

What we did find though was the beach! 

and we got to hang with their kickass dog, Dublin. 

2. The ultimate trifecta of fun. 
On Friday, the Electronics team at work left early 
to celebrate a great 1st half to the year. 

I had forgotten how well 
bowling, beer and pizza go together. 
Pair that with great work friends? 
Perfect afternoon. 

Cheers to a great week
and to only 18 more wake-ups 
until I meet Anthony in Berlin! 
Auf Wiedersehen!
