Tipsy Cows (+ giveaway)

The first thing I remember seeing after getting off my plane earlier this week was this shirt.  It was in the airport gift shop.  I might be purchasing one when I head back to the airport to remember my time in the home of the cheeseheads.

Work trips make my brain mushy.  It is my final evening here and I'm all alone in my hotel room eating a packaged salad and watching Honey Boo Boo's road trip special - one of the kids just licked a giraffe's tongue.  This is garbage.  I hope the animal is OK.

Anyways, this week was my tour of Wisconsin.  We have 3 different offices in the state and I visited all three.  Milwaukee to Madison to Green Bay to Milwaukee.  See why I'm tired?  Wisconsin and Minnesota have a little bit of a rivalry, but it's not the worst place.

That picture on the bottom right was the appetizer someone at our table ordered.  Since I'm in 3rd grade, I had to take a picture.  Gross.  It's an egg wrapped in sausage with a mustard tail?  No thanks.  I did enjoy cheese and Leinie's Honey Weiss while here, because when in Wisconsin, do as the Sconnies do.  

I complain that my trips aren't anywhere exciting for work most of the time, but honestly, I love the Midwest.  I love meeting people in our different offices and having a successful training presentation.  It's exhausting, but it's one of my favorite parts of the job.  I'm excited to snuggle my dogs again and get back into above zero temps tomorrow, but I'll be back to Wisconsin soon.

Now while I am searching the airport for my new cow tipping t-shirt, I hope you will participate in this little giveaway to win yourself something.  I just wanted to say Thank You to everyone that reads this blog.  It's cold outside and there isn't much better than a super hot bath/shower on a cold day.  So, enter with any/all of the options below.

a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. First, I love me some Honey Boo Boo. Don't judge me.

    When I first met Steve, he traveled all the time for work, and I always thought it must be so wonderful to go all over and meet people. It wore on him after awhile, and he started to hate it. But, seeing you do all this traveling, and going new places, and taking pics of weird appetizers still makes it seem pretty awesome! I'm sure you're excited to get back to home. I hope you get that shirt, and I love the giveaway!
    Have a safe trip home!

  2. Bahahaha... "I hope the animal is OK." Internet win of the day!
    I am OBSESSED with Lush but I don't get to buy there very often because it's pricey... AWESOME giveaway!

  3. PETA should be all over their asses for that. So happy your travels went well!

  4. The first thing I saw was that appetizer and I was horrified thinking who the hell would want to eat that? I am very relieved that you photographed it only, and did not eat it.

    I have never had any Lush products and honestly didn't know what it was until I started blogging. Add it to the list of shit I know because of blogging. I feel so out of the loop sometimes. Last night I had to Google what sizzurp was thanks to J Biebs.

  5. I have not been to Wisconsin or that part of the country much and really want to pay a visit. I have heard its beautiful in the summer. Gotta try the cheese of course!

  6. Grew up in the country, in Kentucky and never tipped a cow! We have more horses there then cows! lol. Also thanks for hosting the giveaway.
    I am giving away a Starbucks Verismo Brewer on my blog. I would love if you would check it out. http://thediaryofarealhousewife.blogspot.com/


Thanks for reading my ramblings. It makes my heart happy.
