Alyssa works in our home offices here in Milwaukee as an Digital Media Coordinator. She is a breath of fresh air here in corporate, and puts her all into any task she works on. If you are lucky enough to cross paths with her on a project or even in the hall, you’ll leave with a smile on your face.

She has the best fashion sense and always find that funky cool piece that leaves you asking, “Where did you get that??” Her style is classic meets trendy, and I love that she isn’t afraid to try a new up-and-coming fashion statement, but still stick to her roots and what she loves.

We went for a walk by Lake Michigan, and even though there was a bit of rain, it didn’t put a damper on our day. I learned more about Alyssa, her husband, and their cutie pie dog, Nellie. The love she has for her hubby, dog and family really shows, and I loved hearing about all the adventures. Check out our Q&A with Alyssa below and some fun pictures we captured!

What are some activities you love doing on the weekends? At night?

I would have to say that one of my favorite weekend activities would have to be….Brunch!! I am an avid lover & connoisseur of Bloody Mary’s. I like to try out different brunch spots in search of the best Bloody Mary. It is now a tradition when I travel that I have to try the local Bloody Mary’s, although all are delicious and unique in their own ways…I have to say Wisconsin is home to some of the best Bloody Mary’s.

What are some of your favorite products from Bon-Ton you have bought?

Within the past year or so, I have really started to develop a passion for wine & cheese pairings. My husband and I really enjoy trying different combinations of wine & cheese. The Thirstystone® Marble Serving Tray is perfect for serving & displaying all of the yummy cheese, fruit and exotic meats. Not only is the tray alone a great item for hosting parties, but it also pairs great with the Thirstystone® Pineapple Wood Cracker Tray. (Serving Tip: Put the tray in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes before you put the food on it. This will help keep your food cold so you can savor every bite.)

What is a new hobby you have tried and loved?

I love being on the water, boating, swimming and soaking up the sun. My family has a lake house on the Chain O’ Lakes where we spend almost every weekend in the summer. Needless to say there are not many water related activities I have not tried, however this past summer my girlfriends and I wanted to give SUP (stand up paddle boarding) a try. We took a class and I was hooked. My only regret is that I didn’t tried it sooner…now I have to wait till next summer.
