Hello my gorgeous popsicles!

WELCOME BACK!!! I hope all of you have had a smooth return back to Iowa for our second semester this year. Between 17 semester hours and 30 hours of work split between two jobs I’ve been a little busy and not very fun, BUT lucky for YOU I spent the weekend back in Okoboji for Winter Games.

For all of you that don’t know, every year Okoboji celebrates the season with Winter Games. This just means that everyone spends the day out on the ice participating in intramural sports, eating contests, drinking, and laughing at all the kids silly enough to sign up for the polar plunge. I was extra excited to venture home for these events because this time I brought my super awesome boyfriend 😉 Even though I was a little nervous for him to meet my crazy family, we had a lot of fun and were able to let loose after a hectic first week back at school!

… and when I say I was nervous for him to meet my family, I mean I was nervous for him to meet my two year old niece, Emerson… AKA the light of my life and my most favorite kiddo in the world. OBVI her approval was the most important. She was a little shy at first, but before we knew it she even had her own nickname for him (Uncle Jim … his name is Tyler, haha) and they were bff’s for the rest of the weekend.

It was such a great weekend! I was even a little sad to leave home … until my mom started yelling at me for wanting to take some PS2 games and movies from the house and saying that I was going to lose them blah blah blah … then I was ready to come back to IC 🙂 ANYWAY here are a few photos of Winter Games! Yes I am drinking a beer and yes I am 21, don’t worry guys 😛 Until next time …
