Beer and Cheese

Hey, it's Cathy, your resident Cheesehead.

No, really, I'm going to be a resident of Wisconsin. Making me an official Cheesehead once again.

You heard it here first, folks. I'm packing my life up and moving to Milwaukee. Let me tell you that I just packed my life up and LEFT Milwaukee 6 short years ago. It's cool though, we don't have that much stuff...we are just 2 people. My husband, JT, was offered and accepted a job in Milwaukee just this past weekend (after an intense 3 week interview process).

So, what does moving to Milwaukee mean for me from a sports perspective? We all know that I'm a GB Packers fan. The good news is, so is everyone in Milwaukee. Except for my Father-in-Law and JT's oldest brother. Other than that, I'm 99% sure that everyone loves the Packers. It's like a requirement or something. This means bigger and better Packer parties. Longer and more intense Packer discussions. Greener and Golder lawn decorations. AND....I can finally buy beer on Sunday's again. Oh, how sweet it is!

Milwaukee is also home to the Brewers and Bucks. I'm a MN Twins girl myself, but when your husbands entire family worships the Brewers and still calls Miller Park by it's former name of County Stadium on occasion, it's hard not to get caught up in the excitement. In fact, I do believe I've been to at least one Brewer's game every summer since moving out of Milwaukee 6 years ago. Also, I think my 10 year old niece has been on the floor of the Bradley Center twice in the last year.

Basically, the people I'll now be surrounded by (my husbands family) are much bigger sports fans than the people I am currently surrounded by (my family and our MN friends), which can only lead to more fodder for the blog! The job my husband will be starting in 2 short weeks also has a sports aspect to it. One of the products they make are mascot costumes, how cool is that! They also have many sports teams and leagues as clients. I'm not going to lie, I'm hoping one of the perks of this new job is tickets to games.

Off I go into the land of beer and cheese....mmmmm......beer. 

p.s. Did you hear my favorite Packer, Donald Driver, is going to be on Dancing with the Stars? I've never watched the show, but if Double D is going to be shakin' his groove thing you better believe I'll be tuning in.

p.p.s. As requested by Allyson....I got the nickname Kentucky when one of my husbands good friends couldn't remember exactly how to pronounce my last name. He referred to me as "Cathy Honey Kentucky or however you say it". So I was known as Honey Kentucky....then Kentucky...then Kentuck. Then it just sort of fizzled out. But, Kentucky now holds a special place in my heart and I always pick them to go far in the tournament.


  1. YAY!! This is really good news because when my Jags come to Milwaukee to get their asses handed to them, perhaps I can tag along! My dad went a few years ago and LOVED being the Green Bay stadium. Although, it was wicked cold.

    Also, you're going to have email me your last name because what I have doesn't sound anything like Honey Kentucky. But GO BIG BLUE!! Beat 'Cuse!! ;-D

  2. Eeks how exciting!!! Moving to a new exciting place rules. New jobs rule. Being around cheese rules!!!

  3. Sounds exciting! I totally didn't make the connection with not being able to buy beer on Sunday as a location thing.

    I think you should paint the logo in to your grass. For reals.

    And Ally better watch it with her Cuse voodoo!

  4. Wow, sounds like a great change. Tickets to games would be an awesome perk...

    Good luck.

    Love a Patriots Fan.. :)

  5. So exciting!! Just think of how much more fun Football Sundays will be for you! Can't wait to hear all about it. :)

  6. Congrats to hubs on the new job and good luck with the move!!!

  7. Yay for becoming an official cheesehead again!! :)

  8. Congrats on the move and your hubby's new job! I think it's great you'll get to go home and be surrounded by fellow fans for sure! And yes, beer and cheese are the perfect combo. I too live in a town where you can't buy booze on Sundays... it's totally lame!

  9. Congrats to the move & new job!

  10. Also? Do you realize how freaking close you're gonna be the next time I visit my Mom?
