lpodlich I used to paint pretty frequently, but lately I just haven't made an effort to do it (I blame you, Netflix 😕). Thanks to some recent inspiration from @jaimieemyers - I got back on the watercolor train and painted a ton of valentines to hand out. I totally forgot how completely calming it is to paint! Lookout for these cards coming your way friends! 2d
  •   lesleyinprogress Cute cute cute! 2d
  •   jcdelhandlio So pretty! I'd love to start painting and doing something creative like that... What kind of water color paints do you have? Maybe I'll order some... :-) 2d
  •   surfsims I love this! #inspired 2d
  •   lpodlich @jcdelhandlio I have both Prang and Pelikan-- sets that were my mothers ( they don't make me like they used to now!) both great-- if you can find a Prang set with the 16+ colors that are square shaped- those are best!! 2d
  •   sberkery Love this, isn't it so relaxing?? I mean Neflix is too though ;) 1d
  •   jcdelhandlio Thanks!!! :-) 23h
  •   loulasma Quality : that paint set is almost 45 yrs old. 22h
  •   lpodlich @loulasma I cherish them! Prang set is almost gone. So sad!!!! 15h

lpodlich Someday, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Mindy Kaling, Ellen DeGeneres and I will all be best friends and laugh about the fact I used to be some total peasant that used to just giggle hysterically while I read their books and watched their tv shows at my simple apartment in Wisconsin. Obviously we will all be dressed fabulously and drinking lots of wine. I'll be awaiting your call to start this whirlwind friendship, ladies. Sidenote: if any of you haven't read their books, go get a copy of each now. Or borrow mine. 2w

lpodlich Every weekend I wake up about 3 hours earlier than Michael... Which means 3 hours to read, draw, blog, and plan weekend trips around the area. We're looking for a cool place in WI/MN/IL to spend a weekend cross country skiing in February -- if anyone knows of any cute cabins, great trails, or nice state parks- let me know!! Happy Saturday! 3w
  •   aeprice44 Clear Lake, IA!!!!! Very quaint, tourist town Surf Ballroom too 3w
  •   loulasma The Cable / Hayward area in WI is very popular. I was on xxt ski trip there yrs ago. SE mn nr the bike trail areas, e.g. Preston or Lanesboro, might be good. Been on other ski trips in Ely area and along N Shore and it's lovely, but pretty far away from you. Closest on north Shore to you wdbe Jay Cooke state park. Dad and I skied there once. They have camper cabins! Look at mn dnr site for list of state parks. Includes trail and cabin info. 3w
  •   loulasma I hear Podlich resort has some excellent ski areas nrby. 3w

lpodlich With the -30 windchill we've been having in Wisconsin, drinking cold water hasn't been super appealing...but I've been determined to keep up with @theeverygirl_ 30 day challenge! Infusing water has been super helpful - especially with lime + mint . Anyone have any good flavor combos I should try out?? #teg30daychallenge 3w

lpodlich This year was my first year EVER having a Christmas tree...so while everyone has told me I'm supposed to take it down now that it's the new year...I just can't. It's so sparkly! It's so bright! So go ahead and judge away, but imma keep sipping on peppermint cocoa and sit by my tree for just a liiiiiittle bit longer. 4w

lpodlich ️ Attention Pitch Perfect fans: there are Etsy shops out there that sell pencils with phrases like "Aca-scuse me?!" I realize I'm 26 and probably too old for these movies but whatever. I AM going to the second movie when it comes out in theaters. Who's with me?? 4w

lpodlich I need to take a minute to say a HUGE thanks to good old Mother Nature. Between Thanksgiving/Hanukkah/Christmas we drove well over 1,100 miles to see our families and friends in different cities in MN/WI...and were able to do so safely with almost completely clear roads. The snow came when we were safely inside by the fire, and the sun came out when it was time to drive. In years past we've driven in some seriously scary icy & snowy conditions- so Mother Nature, if you're listening, I owe you one, girlfriend. I promise I'll recycle more in 2015. Xo, Laura 🌲 1mon
