[extended] wknd recap // birthday festivities

i am now officially a quarter of a century old. cray. the festivities kicked off last Friday and have not officially stopped. because, why not? i had a fabulous extended weekend celebrating with lots of lovely people; including celebrating my momma on sunday. and with that, i’ll leave you with some pictures.

birthday weekend // yard house

friday: the party started at yard house in st louis park. well it actually started at figilo, but i have no photographic proof so it pretty much never happened. it was a fun night with delicious food and bomb{dot}com cocktails. all made a little sweeter by a mini birthday cake and a Wild win.

saturday: brother bear came up friday and stayed with [B] i through the weekend. we had a lazy day of a whole lot of nothing including a long walk with starksthepup and a caribou stop, of course.

birthday/ mothers day celebration

sunday: mothers day! we met the fam at bar louie in uptown mpls. it was half off bloody’s and mimosas. so there’s that. the food was super as well. we ventured to the walker art center sculpture garden to walk around and take a bazillion photos. those shall be displayed soon in an upcoming post. then we stopped to see the minneapolis golf club were [B] and i will be tying the knot and ended the day with some fab cupcakes from GiGi’s in golden valley. i had the wedding cake and it was devoured in a hot minute.

birthday weekend

monday aka BIRTHDAY!: i have decided that i don’t work on my birthday, so i took the day off. i highly recommend this. just saying. [B] and i had a coffee date at Caribou, then i watched a really terrible Lifetime movie and snuggled with starksthepup; then was off to MOA to meet my best friend for lunch and do a little shopping. when [B] got home from work we watched an episode of House of Cards (sidenote: SO obsessed with show right now. we are in ep 4 of season 2. SO good.) and then we went to my absolute favorite restaurant, Chino Latino – the food, the drinks, the people watching. love it all.
