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. :)

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.

When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
