Every summer, I make a bucket list for Ryan and I. It typically goes almost completely ignored. However, each May I am convinced that that summer will be different. The list is even often filled with things I don't even really want to do...but that I feel like I SHOULD do. Typical FOMO.
So, when we found out we would be moving and that this could possibly be our last summer in Milwaukee (I can't even stomach the thought), I was determined to make it the best most Milwaukee-y summer possible. I started out with making a cute bucket list print to frame for DC.
The bucket list was edited and re-edited so much after that initial list that we can just pretend we did everything on there. It ended up looking like this.
We had a blast. The highlights were definitely...everything. We ended up with two doughnut places on there---one of which will be present at our wedding. We had about...4 different pizza places on there, too! We are definitely food people.
The top 3 were definitely:
1. Piccolo Pizzeria: if you are ever in MKE GO there, especially if it's warm. The outdoor seating is adorable and it is the perfect place for a date night or a family night out. There are lights strung, picnic tables, live music, amazing pizza, and red wine for days.
2. Red Lion: we had the best date day there. It turned into a drunken evening there as well...
3. Brewers/Pirates game: I got Ryan tickets for his birthday and had planned a big tailgate with his friends...little did he know his brother (yay--now my future brother-in-law) was coming to surprise him as part of his gift! It was the first (and possibly last) time I was ever able to pull off a big surprise for him!
