da weekend!

did ya'll have a nice weekend? i hope it wasn't as humid and gross in your location like it was here in Minneapolis! it's okay though... the best way to avoid humidity is to try new restaurants and take care of some back-to-school shopping because we still get to do that even as a grown-up right?!

we tried out Bar Louie this weekend but we're not cool enough to attend the Uptown location and be clubbing... no no we went to the Bar Louie attached to the... Ridgedale Mall... yup the mall people. BUT did you know this restaurant works with a scratch kitchen (sauces/everything from scratch) and the food wasn't too bad actually it was pretty darn good! the hubs tried the meatball sandwich and i ordered a smoked turkey sandwich but i really just wanted to eat the meatball sandwich.

we're on a roll to try new things and restaurants and on Saturday we decided to give the old Sunset's location a try.  Sunsets used to be the place to brunch and have low key weekend lunches when i was growing-up but just recently they closed and now in its place resides CoV Wayzata. it's just so light and airy inside CoV Wayzata and the nautical theme really makes me want to own a sailboat or know more people who have sailboats i can come visit :)

lots of gaps in my posting but here's a cute photo!

here's what happens when your long haired  mini doxie goes playing in the snow and get's snow frozen to her fur... you have to give her a bath!  gotta love Minnsnowta winters and all the work that goes with 'em!

getting ready for the holidays 'eh?

so i live in the Midwest... Minnesnowta exactly but yet there is no snow to be found... i feel like we are still in "fall mode" and boxes of freshly sharpened pencils should be the talking subject... not turkeys?!  but turkey it is and Thanksgiving is this Thursday but really it's Friday for me... long story short but when you are planning to get married you have to compromise on a lotta things.

the Black Friday and Cyber Monday emails have been flooding in and this year I'm a bit more prepared to maybe snag a few deals this year... but all my loved ones have yet to get me their materialistic holiday wish lists! come on ma, pa, and sista who don't even read this little bit of cyber space... get those lists to me... moi... pronto!  happy Turkey day to those that celebrate the holiday!

here are a few things on my wish list...

  •  sign-up for onetruffle.com's mailing list and i think there might be a deal coming my way... one can never have enough organizational pouches and i love my No 1 Clarity pouch in Peony!
  • just about anything from MZ Wallace and they are currently having an early holiday sale and if you like them on Facebook you can get access now!
  • bumbleandbumble has a sweet holiday gift set with perfect travel sized versions of my favorite products
  • these black jeans from Rag&Bone
