Old Bakery Beer Co.

The other night I was fortunate enough to be invited to an event at a new brewery in our area. Brandon and I had been wanting to visit, so this event was the perfect excuse for us to head out there!

The Old Bakery Beer Co. is located in downtown Alton, IL, so it was about a 45 minute drive from home.

Wishing – for more sleep. Jude has been waking up a little earlier than normal. And he’s teething. At least I assume teething is the cause of the mass amounts of drool. I can tell he’s uncomfortable and I just feel so bad for him. Plus allergies are getting to me (and BTR) so I don’t feel 100% either. Not a fun week in our house! I’m hoping for a relaxing weekend, but who am I kidding!

Weekend Fun

What a weekend! I’m ready to take a nap, and let’s hope Jude agrees with me! :) We were out of town this past weekend for Brandon’s cousin’s wedding! It was So. Much. Fun!

Since we were in the area, we went to The Bar for lunch on Friday. Yes this is “The Bar” from the movie Gone Girl.

Friday night we had the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. Brandon and I could not remember the last time we ordered steaks for dinner. And these steaks did not disappoint, they were sooooo delicious! Jude opted for a meal of french fries! :)

Friday night sleeping was NOT fun. We brought the … read more
