Busy, Busy Weekend.

We received our special package on Thursday. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, I was asked to review some adult toys and the ones I picked arrived Thursday.
Because I work full time and am a mother of 2 girls, both of which have problems staying in their own bed at night, I was having scheduling issues on when to use said products.
Matt asked me on Friday to get my mom to watch the girls overnight on Saturday. After a few calls, I coordinated it. Matt's mom was going to drop Vivi off at the bowling alley on Saturday, and then after Emerson bowls, we were going to take the girls downtown to my mom's house. Also, on Saturday, I had a Chiropractor appointment and I needed to get to the diet doctor because I was almost out of pills.
So, we left the house on Saturday morning at 8:15am to get to the Chiropractor at 9. After that appointment, I texted my friend Katie and her and her son Tyler met us for breakfast at Denny's.
After breakfast, we went to the bowling alley and Matt, Tyler and Emerson went in while Katie and I drove over to the diet doctor.

After that appointment, ( I lost 4 lbs. YAY!!) we went back to the bowling alley to catch the 3rd game and for me to find out that Matt's mom isn't dropping Vivi off. The weather was pretty crappy (rain) and Vivi was pretty tired and crabby. She was going to keep Vivi for another night.
After bowling, Matt said that we needed to go home before we took Em down to my mom's. When we got home, Emerson grabbed a bunch of Wii games (mom had gotten a Wii that day) and Matt told me to pack a bag for the night. When I asked him where we were going, he just said that it was a surprise but I didn't need to bring anything fancy, just a change of clothes and some toiletries. I also caught him packing the box that we received on Thursday.
After dropping Emerson off, we started heading North. Every time I would ask Matt where we were going, he would simply say "This way."
As we were driving, I was like a 5 year old in the car, "Are we there yet?" "Are we there yet?"
"How about now?' But he still wouldn't tell me.
Finally, we reached our destination, the Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan, Wisconsin. It was stunning, even in the rain!

We went into our room and it was gorgeous! A king size bed, 32"LCD TV, whirlpool bathtub and a balcony.

It was about 6pm now, and we were starving, so we went to find some dinner. I had seen a sign for a place called Joseph's Steak House and it sounded pretty good.

When we got there, we were a little confused. There was a restaurant that looked like it used to be a house and the sign said North Shore Bar and Grill. The GPS said that this was the place so we went to investigate.

When we walked in the door, it turns out that this building housed 2 restaurants. To the right was Joseph's and to the left was North Shore Bar and Grill but they shared the same entrance. But as it turns out, that's not all they shared, but also, the bar and kitchen.

We turned right and walked into Joseph's and looked around. It seemed a little fancy. When we saw the reservation book and the very old lady in the Laura Ashley dress look at us disapprovingly, we turned around a walked into the bar.

This was more our style. We ordered cheeseburgers, fried mushrooms and beers. It was so good and we even got to catch some of Puerto Rico kick Panama's butt in the World Baseball Series game.

After dinner, we stopped at Walmart to get some pop, snacks and batteries and then headed back to the resort.

I will review the first product on Tuesday, so be sure to look for it. It's called the Artemis.

How did you know which size batteries to pick up?

And I have to wonder if the baby sitters have any idea why their services were needed? :)

I'm do hope "My Side of the Story" has a review too - and I hope its not point-counterpoint and that you have a bunch of two thumbs ups.
