To Be Honest Tuesday...

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, 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.

Lego Land!

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.

Monday was pretty low key.  We got up, packed up our stuff, hit the coffee shop, did some MORE gambling, had a massage at the spa, went back to the Mall of America (I got the wrong sized stuff for Sunshine), to Chick-Fil-A for a late lunch/early supper & then headed home to Wisconsin.


  1. WELL NOW I WANT CHEESE SOUP whatever the hell that is... but I love cheese... so I'll take it! Also, every other food item. Yup, now I'm hungry.

    I'm glad you guys had such a good time! Jam packed weekend!!

    1. Oh my goodness, beer cheese soup is amazing! And it's so easy to make...I may have to make it on Sunday for Souper Sunday. :)

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

$10 at Target...

Yea, I was able to get to Target & get some goodies so I could link-up with one of my favorites!  Awhoo hoo!  If you wanna join in, visit Liz or any of the other hosts to linkup.  :)

Here is my haul:

Sunshine complained the other night that she needed more socks so I picked her up some.

I had to hit the clearance Easter stuff & picked these up for Paul.  He loves sour stuff so thought they would be right up his alley.  :)

I picked these up for myself.  I love them SO much & since I didn't make myself an Easter bag I figured I would grab these when they were 50% off.  Yum!

My grand total:  $10.96 Almost a dollar over but that's okay, I got some needed things.
