Weekend Update: 6/9/13


Abby just couldn’t wait for Luke to get up from his nap. . . she was just sitting in the hallway and doorway outside of his room all during his naptime.


5th wedding anniversary lunch at Panera! What a difference 5 years makes. Smile 


What someone thought of our 8 mile run on Friday afternoon. . . (new baby jogging stroller record!!)


Fun delivery from Chobani on Friday afternoon – Chobani bites!!


Headed to the cities on Saturday. . .sleepers in the backseat. IMG_4463IMG_4465

I dropped Luke and Abby off at my parent’s house for a few hours on Saturday afternoon. . .


A super fun get together with these ladies – Melanie and Becky! We met up at Caribou and spent 2 hours (that went by way too quickly) talking about life, blogging and everything. I am so happy that I have become “real life” friends with them!!


Then, we headed to Patisserie 46 for some of this.  . .


And to meet up with Teresa from Famiglia Meschini wines. She shared her adorable story how her family started their wine company. They make their wines in Chile and Argentina and import them here! She is also a busy Mom. She was nice enough to meet with us and share her story and info about their wines. IMG_4472

She, of course, brought some wine for us to take home! I snagged a bottle of their Torrontes Premium. Thanks Teresa!! IMG_4475

After a quick run with my Dad and Abby. I picked up Scott and we headed out for our anniversary dinner at The Bradstreet Crafthouse at The Graves Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. IMG_4479

I knew it was going to be a good meal, when the waiter brought us a pre-cocktail cocktail! Winking smile We each started with a drink, Tom Collins for Scott and a gin-fruit-thing for me. Their menu is all small plates and sandwiches so we got a bunch of different things and shared them all. The best thing was a chicken fried black cod sandwich with fresh house made pickles – yum! But we also had. . .

The chicken and waffles was super yummy and Scott loved the caprese melt. The only thing that I wanted to get that we didn’t was the Becky recommended Lobster Mac and Cheese (so, we totally need to go there together, Becky!!) And we finished the meal with vanilla crème brulee. It was a really nice anniversary dinner! And I would recommend Bradstreet to anyone who wants a good place to go hang out and have some interesting drinks and fun food.

Luke had lots of fun hanging with Grandma and Grandpa Thompson while we went to dinner.


We headed back to Mankato on Saturday night. .  .

And Luke and I went out for a 4 mile run. PJs are totally acceptable jogging stroller attire on Sunday morning, right?


Then, it rained most of the afternoon. . . which was fine by me! Snuggled on the couch, catching up on TV time and blog work during baby nap time –> perfect Sunday afternoon. ..


And cookie cake helps too!


Hope you had a great weekend too! Up to anything fun/exciting/totally boring?

  1. Do I have a fellow gin-lover on my hands??! OMG – YES!! I was afraid to recommend any gin drinks to you because a lot of people turn up their noses. AH – you HAVE to go to Marvel Bar (below The Bachelor Farmer) and have Pip make you something ah-maz-ing with gin! You can crash on my sofa if you need to afterwards – it is only a few blocks away 😉 And yes, let’s totally go to Bradstreet as a date. I’d love to go back!

      YES!! Love it. We will have to go check these places out together soon. We will obviously have to get together all the time – our to-do list is getting crazy long. 😉

  2. Ah, a Chobani bite delivery?! I’m jealous! 🙂

  3. PJ-s = OK in my book! My boys wore them today for 3/4 of the day!
    I would love for us to be “real life” friends. So glad you get to meet up with other bloggers! 🙂

      I would too – if I could get away with it!! And I guess sometimes I do. .. I usually just get dressed to go for a run!!

  4. Can I be the third wheel on your Bradstreet date? It sounds delicious! I had so much fun with you ladies on Saturday and honestly cannot wait to do it again.
    I LOVE that photo of Luke in the sink. He is absolutely adorable!

      duh – of course!! And me too. 🙂 I have a similar baby photo in the sink – I will have to dig it out to do a side by side. 😉

  5. How cute of Abby! I am such a sucker for dogs, they do such sweet stuff! Looks like you had another fun and busy weekend. Anniversary celebrations and wine meet-ups…fine by me. 🙂

  6. Sounds like a great weekend, and so many great pics of Luke! I may need to take a road trip to try that Lobster Mac & Cheese with you – that sounds incredible! And PJs are acceptable attire any time of day, says the woman who works in her sweats most days. Go figure!

  8. Congratulations on 5 years! What a wonderful milestone 😉 Also, I’m so jealous that you get to have a blogger meet-up with some lovely ladies. And the fact that there was wine involved is an added bonus. Have a great monday, and enjoy the cookie cake leftovers – if there are any, which I hope there aren’t! – 😉

      Yes! We have leftovers. . .but they are sitting in the freezer right now so we won’t be tempted during the week. We try not to eat dessert during the week – save it just for the weekend.

  9. real life bloggie friends are wonderful! thanks for reminding me as I will email some of mine right now for a get together!
