Creatives at Play + Primula Giveaway Winner!

First and foremost, I hope all my East Coast readers are safe for when Sandy comes (especially Brigitt). My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

You know how weekends seem to fly by and you don’t know where the time went? Well this weekend wasn’t like that — probably because I had faux 3-day weekend. I mentioned on Thursday that our creative outing was on Friday. Here’s a pic of the cake balls I made (obviously when I dip anything in chocolate I make a huge mess!).

The day started out in a park on Milwaukee’s South Side. We had a pig roast (I did take a picture but I don’t want to risk losing readers, so I’m not showing it). It was borderline freezing, so I dug out all our winter gear to be prepared.

Because my work also has a Madison office, I got to meet some of my coworkers for the first time. Everyone was super friendly, but I was perplexed by one thing. I met a male coworker who happened to be vegan. Although I eat meat, I completely respect everyone’s diets, no matter what they are. Later that morning after asking him about his journey to veganism, I saw him light up a cigarette. This was something that completely shocked me.

I just assumed that if you were vegan, than you’d be healthy in all aspects of your life. What do you think? Does the good outweigh the bad?

After the park, we headed to Koz’s for mini bowling. I used to be on a bowling league in 7th grade, and I think my highest score was a 156. I obviously rock at mini bowling because my first game I bowled a 197.

Koz’s also has a bar, which is where the lion watches over patrons. My coworker asked the bartender how it got there and she said her husband shot the lion in the 1970s near a farm. Apparently he thought it was a mountain lion. When he found out it was a lion lion, he hid the dead animal in his closet for 30 years. You can still see the bullet hole in its left shoulder.
