Weekend Review: 7 + A Giveaway

Feliz cinco de Mayo!

I had such a nice weekend. Let me share it with you!

Friday after work some friends and I went to a new champagne bar at the Graves 601 called Relevé. It was so nice and elegant. We were able to grab a larger area for our group and mingle over our champagne. I opted for a flight for only $17. The pours are pretty generous, especially when you consider one glass alone is anywhere from $9-$17. I chose to try their three different proseccos.

If you're looking for a new/different experience in Minneapolis and enjoy a little bubbly, this is definitely a fun spot to check out and have a glass.

A few girls were headed to a concert so we walked over to Union to take advantage of their rooftop and get some food. I went with the meatball sliders. They were ok, but I probably wouldn't get them again. The menu looked good and I'd like to go there for a full dinner sometime, but my budget conscious wallet just wasn't feeling their prices that day.

When I got back to my temporary home I was greeted with a very rambunctious dog.
Sorry for the one eye there. Blame it on the champs...or the tongue that was all over my face.

Saturday I did some quick shopping before Liam and I headed out to tackle the wind and get in our walk around Lake Calhoun.

He pulled me the whole way around the lake. I swear, there is no tuckering out this guy. It was a really nice day except for the wind, but the lake was so busy and active. It really makes me excited for the day that I get to move closer to the action. I definitely know I'll be a lot more active when the move happens.

On Saturday night a friend had a Western themed birthday party. I was so excited to whip out the cowboy boots and pair them with a fun shift dress.

Downtown was crazy insane with Derby parties and a western themed bar crawl going on, but it helped us blend in a little more than if we were just wearing cowboy boots for fun.

Sunday I slept in and it felt so wonderful. I headed over to my parents house to see my dog and enjoy some sun on the deck. Watching Liam has really made me realize how much of a small dog person I am. I love how Miley will go for long walks but she'll tucker out and want to nap for the rest of the day. I love that she can curl up on my lap and not leave me bruised and scratched. And I really love that she can't pull me around. Liam's a sweet little man, but he is too much energy for me.

In the 'real world' I think it was Miley who was too much for Liam (ba dum cha!).

I enjoyed spending the day on the deck, getting some sun (and a sun burn), while having a couple Spotted Cows. You can only get Spotted Cow in WI so I associate it with the lake and warmth. It's coming, I can feel it!

Now, I mentioned last week that I was asked to partner with Qdoba for Cinco de Mayo. Well one of you lucky readers can win a loaded Qdoba gift card.
