Old friends, food, and CHEESE!

This weekend, I made my first of many trips from central Iowa to Madison Wisconsin. It was not before I had lunch with a couple of friends from Missouri. Tom, Alberto and Natalie were all in the area for various reasons but we got together for lunch on Friday with a couple of Tom's friends. It was a nice time to catch up although I will see them again this weekend... but it is always good to see (and hear from) friends from grad school.

As for the road trip to Wisconsin, I think I shuffled through my entire ipod... I just wasn't in the mood to listen to anything in particular and I sort of have ADD when it comes to music. Once I got to Wisconsin, I relaxed at home for a while but we made it out to see the movie 'Knocked Up.' It was pretty funny, not as good as 40 year old virgin but it is definitely worth seeing. Then we had some burgers from Dotty Dumpling's Dowry.

Before I headed back to Iowa, I wanted to pick up some cheese to take to lab (and keep for myself). We went to one of our favorite cheese and produce stores. I got some great cheese.. butterkase and gouda.. but I had to laugh at this sign.
I always thought it was a little crazy that they actually play those commercials in Wisconsin!

Dotty Dumplings Dowry has the best cheeseburgers in the world. We were in Madison for a few days when I was pregnant with Piper, and we ate there at least once a day. And now I want a cheeseburger, and it's only 9am.

I noticed the baby widget issue, but Sinead is obsessed with it and won't let me take it away. Easier just to obey pregnant women...
