Last week, I spent a couple of days here.
I’m lucky to have this job of mine. Banana Republic wanted to work with me to promote , and asked that I invite a few people for a summer outing. Inviting bloggers wasn’t a requirement, but I wanted my friends , , and to come. Then I crossed my fingers and sent an email to the owner of , hoping to rent a cabin. You know — that place in Wisconsin with the paint-by-number nursery?
That’s the one. I’d seen the place in magazines and photo shoots for years, and was thrilled when was able to accommodate us. Kim was familiar with it too, and was equally excited about going. Can you tell we were into it?
We were all pretty into it. (Plus we all got some cute , so bonus.)
Jess decided that we were glamping. I don’t know if that’s technically accurate, as we did have beds. The showers were communal, so I guess there was that. And we probably could have slept in the camper, had any of us wanted to.
Anyway, we slept in beds, in a sweet little 3 bedroom cabin. This was my room.
Brace yourselves, because this place was amazing and I have approximately 2,042 photos of it.
We lazed, we swung. We took photos, and we arched. (I assume there’s a better way to say that.)
We drove into town the next morning and brought breakfast back to the tree house. We explored the grounds a bit more before calling it a day and heading back home.
felt a lot like Brandon’s family lake house, but it’s only two hours from Chicago instead of six, and a lot more Wes Anderson-y.
I mean come on.
This is real. This is a real place. Can you believe the cuteness? Every time I turned a corner, “oh, cute.”
Yeah, I may have posed in front of a painting, with the intention of editing the photo and turning it into a painting. I should have tucked in , and added a red bandana and suspenders. Had I found an axe, the effect would have been complete.
Let’s forget that I did that. Here, more cute Wandawega.
It was a crazy time for all of us to pick up and leave, but I’m so glad we were able to do it. And we all felt pretty foxy.
p.s. Blogger footwear of choice in the woods? Wellies. (It was actually raining, and when the trails proved muddy we were glad we’d brought our boots.) This last photo was the result of propping my camera on a log and using the self-timer.
