To be honest, I had a great weekend getaway with the hubby. Paul & I both needed it horribly with all the crap going on at home with Trouble (which I'll update you on in a new post) & how busy we've both been with work & outside activities. We were able to just enjoy each other company again & it was wonderful!
We started off our vacation with heading to Eau Claire to check out the bluffs. Now, he's really brave when it comes to heights...me, not so much. I'm terrified but we did do some hiking & such. We even did the whole selfies on the trails but those are on his phone. So, here is what I got:
As we were heading up.
My hubby is so brave.
Then, per my request, we hit up an apple orchard & we even picked our own apples & I got myself a very delicious caramel apple. Yummy!
I really need to get better at taking selfies...I look ridiculous! Ha!
These have been my new weakness lately.
Once we got to our hotel, we just hung for a bit & then we went to see Dracula Untold at an IMAX theater. I'll tell you right now, I've developed a new crush for Luke Evans. He has this look to him that I just like more & more. He's delish! The movie was pretty good & then we hit up Panera Bread & got some goodies "to go" & headed back to the hotel to dine & get some sleep.
Saturday morning, we headed to the Mall of America. I really don't know why I request to go there all the time cuz I really only hit the same stores I would hit at any other mall - Justice, Victoria's Secret / Pink & any sports store. However, in MN, didn't pay to hit up a sports store as I didn't need me any ViQueen attire. Tee hee!
Anytime I see a Beatle, I must take a picture. This one from Hard Rock Cafe.
Combo platter - onion rings, chicken tenders, brushetta (sp?), wings & spinach artichoke dip.
That wing was claimed.
Then back to the hotel so my husband could poop...he couldn't do it in public. & then we headed to Mystic Lake for some gambling & to see Julian McCullough (I know him from Chelsea Lately & Love You, Mean It with Whitney Cummings). He was hilarious & we were right in the front! So, we got picked on especially Paul ("this guy is dressed like a twelve year old). Ha!
The view from our seats.
Julian & I after the show. He told me that he'll have a new show on E! Yippee!
Sunday, we piled on our Packer gear & headed to a Packer bar downtown Minneapolis. Let me tell ya, this place was packed from wall to wall with Packer fans. They actually had a nice setup outside with benches & tables so Paul & I sat out there, ordered some food & cheered on the Pack!
Beer cheese soup & cheese curds - the meal of Packer cheering Cheeseheads!
A view from our seat.
After the game, we headed to our new hotel, hit up Happy Hour (I had a Water Moccasin drink & it was yummy), did some gambling, at the buffet, more gambling & then up to bed early.
