Beauty in Bloom & Chez Jacques

“I know what I bring to the table… so trust me when I say I’m not afraid to eat alone.”-unknown

Do I like to eat alone? Sure why not. Living in Saint Paul and Minneapolis on my own taught me a great deal about how to be comfortable with my own company.  This is truly something I recommend every twenty something girl who’s trying to find themselves gives a try. No seriously. Put your phone away, talk to the bartender, and maybe make a new friend with the kid in a suit from Montana.

Life advice moment over. On to the weekend!

This weekend was Beauty in Bloom at the Milwaukee Art Museum.

(http://www.ebony.com/) The pieces were beautiful and just what I needed to keep believing that spring is on it’s way! They also featured local vendors such as Hometown (http://hometownestablished.com/) and La Tulipe (http://www.latulipedesign.com/) who gave away bouquets with a renewal of a previous membership or a new membership. My mom renewed her’s so we selected a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers! (seen below) I highly recommend this event. It’s a joy to go with family or  grab a few girlfriends!

So what did I do Sunday?

I am so glad you asked. I got a meet a fellow foodie and blogger! I met the author of MKE What’s Up…Dani.  Check her out —> (http://mkewhatsup.com/)We had a lovely brunch at Chez Jacques. Chez Jacques is located in Walker’s Point, as they put it “in the shadow of Milwaukee’s most notable landmarks-the Allen Bradley clock tower.”  If you can’t find it with that hint well… you’ve probably never visited MKE. We both decided on Mimosas. I had the Spinach & Roquefort Croissant sandwich and Dani had the Veggie and Feta omelet.

I will definitely be stopping back for dinner. It was so great to meet another local blogger and make a new friend. I see some MKE What’s Up and How She Sees MKE collabs in the future. I mean at least some more brunch, lunches, dinners, bloodys, or wine!
