A New Blog To Visit Me At

Hello Really Reynolds readers!  (Wow that was a lot of R's!)  Thank you so much for faithfully visiting this blog even when I haven't been the best about posting lately.  I have been planning and plotting a new venture, a little blog I like to call Cabernet and Chaos.

I felt that it was time to go in a new direction and that it required a new blog.  I am hopeful that you will join me there!  It is brand new and I probably still have kinks to work out, but don't I always!

I hope you will join me on this new adventure!  I am very excited about it and looking forward to the future!

Thank you again for reading!

Weekend Update: Ski Jumps

Did anyone else snooze for 30 minutes this morning?  Whoops. 
This little snuggly face this morning didn't help.  Would you want to get up and head to work?

This weekend, we headed up for Ski Jumps.  Every year up north, there is an annual Ski Jump competition.  It is legit.  International jumpers come into our tiny town to compete.  And we all stand around in the cold and watch them.  It is actually a lot more fun than it sounds.  I promise!  It's like a giant winter tailgating party.  And everyone comes into town for it so it is a giant lake reunion.  In the winter.  When the lake is frozen.

This year the sun was shining and it was a balmy 15 degrees out.  For those of you living through this midwestern winter, you know that is about as good as it gets.  So Saturday we bundled up and headed to the hill to watch the jumping.

In case you are wondering what one wears at an event like this, here are some ideas to keep you warm and stylish.  Because everyone should be prepared for a weekend of winter tailgating!

Ski Jump Style

Lands End black down coat / Boots / Forever 21 fringe shawl / The North Face Beanie Black/ Red One Size / The North Face Etip Glove

Hope you had a had a fun weekend!  Have a great week!

Linking Up with Leann, Molly and Carly

Photo Friday: Summer 2013 Photos

Hey ya'll!  I haven't done a Photo Friday in forever!  Or blogged in forever.  I am SICK of winter!!!!  I am guessing most of you are feeilng the same way!  I am BEYOND ready for warmer weather.  Heck, I'd even settle for a warm vacation at this point. Here is an iPhone dump of what our summer looked liked.  A reminder of fun and WARMER days.  Hope you enjoy dreaming of the warmer temps to come!

Lots of packing and unpacking.  

Lots of tug-a-war.

Best buds hanging out together at the lake.

My Jewell kit arrived at the beginning of June and I have been off an a new adventure ever since!

We had a fabulous house warming party!  Somehow this was the only picture I took.

My sister-in-law got married.  A shot of the Reynolds ladies at her shower in June.

We went through a lot of gas in the boat this summer!  
Thanks for this handy invention, none of it ended up in the lake!

Lots of time was spent road tripping in the car.

We did spend a little bit of time at home.


 Our pool pump didn't work so this blow up pool did the trick!
We had a great time having our nieces over for pool parties!

And more fun with them up north!

We had some great family cruises & quality time together.

And of course there was always a good ATV ride to be had!

It's a good thing Buoy is a boat and water dog.  He sure lives up to his name.

At my sister-in-law's wedding.  Besties since birth.

SIL's wedding.

After the rehearsal dinner. The night before the wedding.
Cheers to the Outlaws!

New Glarus.  Pretty much sums up a summer up north!

Skied so hard, my hubby broke the handle.  Ok it might have been defective.

Summer 2014 I am ready for you!  Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
