We're going to travel back in time today about 2 months. OR we can just pretend this trip happened last weekend? Whichever you prefer! Anyways, back in May, we went out to Des Moines again for the most wonderful wedding and had loads of fun exploring more of this awesome midwestern city! Our first stop when we got there, a Mexican restaurant for some lunch.

***Enjoy the Beer City!
Taking the CTA to Wrigley Field for a Cubs game in Chicago is one of the most popular ways of transportation to get to a game. However, it can be overwhelmingly crowded to get back on the train after a game. It's wall to wall people and if you don't leave a game early, you end up having to wait for 3 trains to pass you by before you can get on. Driving is even worse. Bumper to bumper traffic for miles. My solution to this problem is, don't leave Wrigleyville right away! Here are the 10 best spots to hit up after a Cubs game and wait out the mob of people leaving the neighborhood.
Hola friends! We're back with our last bit about Summerfest today. We ended it with a bang, that's for sure. I truly believe the best way to do Summerfest is with the 3 day pass. You essentially get your last day for $5. You can't beat that! They have great musicians all 11 days, it's actually hard to choose just 3!
Hello hello! Back with more on Summerfest on this glorious Friday! Like I said in my last post, we got 3 day passes to Summerfest this year, so for day two we went on a Tuesday night to see Meg Myers.
Summerfest is the world's biggest musical and it is held every year in Milwaukee, WI. Caleb and I started going to the festival last year and haven't looked back since. We love going and plan on going every year we possibly can. We always get the 3 day pass because it is only $45 a person! That gets you in all day long and you can go to any of the stages except the Marcus Amphitheater. Such a steal. Anyways, we decided this year to make our first day at Summerfest be Saturday, June 27th, which allowed us time to spend all day exploring Milwaukee!
We arrived in Milwaukee early in the afternoon and decided to embrace the beer city and have a drink right away. We were waiting to board our historic boat tour and there happened to be a local brewery right next to the dock. How lucky, right? I had a blonde ale called Gold Digger and Caleb had a Hefenwizen called Unshadowed at Ale Asylum.
It's no secret I'm a coffee fiend. Some people that know me even call me a coffee snob. I like to think of this as a positive rather than a negative because that just means I only drink the best of the best, right!? Well, I'm a big fan of a well brewed cup of Joe from your bigger chains like Starbucks, Peets, and Caribou, but I truly love local shops the most. Portland has some of the best coffee there is, so here's a list of what I think are the best coffee shops in Portland!

So our main mission on our best friend trip to Portland, OR was to find Ashlyn an apartment. However, I realize many of you won't be going to Portland to apartment hunt, so I'm going to share day 3 of our trip with all of you because that was our full explorer day!
Alright friends, I'm probably going to sound like I'm exaggerating, but I'm not. Radar in Portland is one of the best restaurants in America. It was definitely our favorite meal on our trip to Portland, and all of me wishes I could eat here weekly. So without further ado...I give you Radar!
