weekend review

One of my dear pals, Elecia, came up to visit us from IL this past week.

(You’ll remember her as my best friend since kindergarten, maid of honor, and New Orleans travel buddy.)

“E” had a work conference to attend in Minnesota and came up the weekend before to hangout.

During her visit we…

…visited the spoonbridge and cherry, played at the sculpture garden (and saw someone propose), wandered downtown, lunched at the Midtown Global Market, went thrift-shopping, stopped by Ikea and the MOA, watched the monkeys at the Como Zoo, soaked up the warmth at the botanical gardens, ate dinner at Mozza Mia and the Crooked Pint Ale House, played many games (500 Rummy, Presidents & Assholes, Ticket to Ride, and Settlers of Catan), and spent a late night out partying at The Pourhouse and The Shout House.

I’m so glad Elecia was able to take the extra time to stay with us because we always have such fun together. Can’t wait ‘til our next adventure!

  1. I’ve seen people get engaged at the sculpture garden, too! It seems like either that or people are taking engagement/wedding pictures. Did you go to Salty Tart at Midtown Global Market? Their pastries etc are amazing. I’ve been wanting to go to The Rabbit Hole there, too!

    • The sculpture garden is definitely a popular/iconic place to propose or take pictures. It was really sweet, he was hiding and had red roses. People clapped. And it was a gorgeous day too!

      The Salty Tart – yes, great bakery! Haven’t been to The Rabbit Hole, but will add it to the list. We were craving Mexican that day haha
