Madison, Wisconsin...........L-O-V-E!!!!

What a wonderful weekend!  Madison was everything I expected it to be.  A fabulous college town, great downtown, really good food (oh the food!!), great views down every street, and an amazing setting for a great wedding!

This, THIS, is the view from UW-Madison's student union.  Seriously!!!!  And there's a bar where you can sit outside and just watch this view.  After seeing this I was really bummed I didn't go to school here :) 

Doors on campus.  Not all the buildings were this lovely (there were certainly some 1970s war buildings that were NOT cute), but many were great!

Camp Randall!

The Wisconsin Seal

The farmer's market was amazing.  It surrounds the entire block of the capitol each Saturday morning.  We bought muffins, veggies and fruit for the week, and thoroughly enjoyed all the football fans out in their red and white getting ready for the game.  I would do this every Saturday, for sure!!

Once again, the amazing view of the lake.  You could see peeks of it down some of the downtown streets and, just like I do up north, I would get so excited to see the lake.  I'm such a water sign!!

We ate two meals (dinner and bruch) at Sardine (as recommended by QBS) and all of us talked about it ALL weekend.  So, so, so good!!  Have you ever had creamed eggs?  Oh, you should!!  B and I a went to Marigold for breakfast on Friday- YUM!  We also ate lunch at the Old Fashioned and Dotty Dumplings Dowry.  All the meals we ate were delish!!!!!

I can't believe we haven't gotten to Madison prior to this.  It's a great city!!  It was a wonderful weekend with our friends and a great weekend to enjoy just being married. 

As for the real reason we were there?  The wedding?  Pics to come tomorrow!!!

  1. I'm so thrilled that you had fun in Madtown! I was born and raised there, and I meant to send some restaurant recommendations your way too - but then one thing or another got in the way. The good news is that you totally hit every single one of my favorites!! And isn't the Farmers' Market the most amazing thing ever? I just love it.
