Are you obsessing over U.S. men's swimmer Ryan Lochte too?
LOVE. HIM. I'm kind of bummed that he didn't win gold in every event he's been in, but he's still adorable.
But did you hear that he wanted to wear is patriotic diamond-encrusted grill when he was on the winner podium receiving his gold medal? A U-S Olympic officaly said that if he wore the grill, he wasn't getting his medal. He chose to accept the medal instead, but it's pretty funny.
Are you good at golf? I'm not that great, but I try. Yesterday was our company golf outing and Kidd and I usually drive around in the golf carts to say "hi" to people.
One guy was nice enough to use his club and take a swing.Of course I was nervous, everyone was watching and...I totally biffed the shot. It went only 20 yards in front of me. But hey, like my husband always says, at least it went straight.

I was able to go to my first Packer Shareholders meeting on Tuesday at Lambeau in Green Bay! It was awesome. I had goosebumps when the suites came walking and below is the video of everyone cheering when they stepped onto the field.
And check out the new scoreboard in HD, awesome! The construction going on in the south endzone will also add 7,000 new seats. They are calling it the Sound Wall to hopefully give us more of an advantage when the other team is trying to score.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these two songs we play on The Mix, "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen and "Somebody That I Used To Know" by Gotye and when I saw that an Indy group did a mash-up between them, I was SO EXCITED!!!
Have you visited Lakeshore State Park yet? If you're like me, you're probably thinking, "where?"
It's one of the newest state parks in Wisconsin and it's on the other side of the Summerfest grounds. My husband Aaron and I walked there for the first time this week and it really is so beautiful and a gorgeous view of the city's skyline.
Just park behind the Marcus Ampitheater and head north, you'll love it! It really is a great way to showcase our awesome city!

If you ever get a chance to see Milwaukee from the water...do it! I don't know what it is about the water but everything looks beautiful when you're on the water. I took these over the weekend and just looking at them calms me. We have a beautiful city enjoy it and enjoy what's left of summer:)
