Road Trip!

This was one of those weekends that I really enjoyed being single and not having any real "responsibilities" (i.e. significant other, kids, etc.) Last week my roommate, Sabrina, and I decided, spur of the moment, to go on a road trip. We rented a car, loaded up the trunk, grabbed a pile of CDs, and hit the road at 5 a.m. Saturday morning.

After 5 hours (and some pretty terrible singing along to "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" on my part and a near brush with an empty tank of gas) we arrived in the Chicago area where I was going to meet up with Gretchen, a friend from high school. Gretchen and her husband are preparing to move overseas in a week or so, so she was actually the inspiration for the trip. We had a great brunch and time to just hang out and catch up. We've lived five hours apart for three years, but this was the first time we had gotten together except a brief visit in VA last summer. It was great fun, and I'm glad it worked out! Here's a pic from the afternoon:

After a few hours in Chicago, we got back in the car to head to Milwaukee. Sabrina's parents live there, so since it was only a few hours from Gretchen, we decided to surprise them. After five hours, what's two more?

When we got into town, we had to spend some time hanging out and waiting for Sabrina's parents to get home. We got kind of bored, so these pictures resulted:

When Sabrina's parents got home we had a great time surprising them, then going out for a yummy steak dinner. Heck yeah I'll drive seven hours for a free meal! Sunday we got up and I had a 90-minute tour of Milwaukee. It was frigid, but lots of fun.
