Weekend Review 15

Good bye June, hello July!

I was just talking to a co-worker about my weekend and I got exhausted just thinking about it! Our Summers are so short, we try to cram everything we possibly can in to just 48 hours.

To start the weekend, I was staying at a friends to dog sit while they had to go out of town on short notice. They have two lab mix dogs who have a ton of energy. I'm sure I looked like a fool trying to take those two out to go potty. They just pulled me around and constantly got tangled up in each other. They had some family come to town to stay at their apartment Friday, so I stuck around and let them in, then was able to spend the night in my own bed. It was glorious.

Saturday started bright and early. I went on an Al and Alma's boat cruise with my cousin Pam and her work. We only got rained on for about 10 minutes then the sun came back out. They had an open bar and a ton of food. Inside they had poker tables set up and everyone was given a ticket for $10,000 in chips. You could either use the ticket to play and win tickets for a drawing, or you could turn in your $10k ticket for three drawing tickets. I chose to just give away my ticket.

As soon as the boat docked, thunder started to rumble and we got quite the downpour. Pam and I had about 2 hours between the boat ending the our cousins bachelorette party beginning! I went back to let the dogs out and freshen up before being picked up in a Mercedes. No big deal. Love Uber cars and feeling like a baller.

The bachelorette party started with lots of food, drinks and a couple fun games before the party bus came to take us out for the night. Our first stop brought us back out to Lake Minnetonka for a drink at Lord Fletchers.

After our quick stop at Fletchers we headed back towards Minneapolis and went to Nye's for some polka dancing!

Our final destination was The Front. Everyone must experience this gem of a place at least once in their life and get down with DJ Dirty Duke while he spins MJ, Beyonce and Gaga.

Lucky for me, I was staying in UpTown again where a few people in the group live so I was able to snatch a ride from one of my cousins fiancees! The nice part about taking two dogs out after midnight is that they are so darn tired, they just wanted to do their business and go back to bed. As did I.

I spent some time Sunday contemplating if I was going to tackle the Gay Pride and Food Truck Festival and actually move some items into my new place. I decided on just packing my car and not fighting the crowds. I really dislike moving. As excited as I am to get all moved in, I just can't find the motivation to actually do it.

Well, I have an exciting package being delivered to my house today. Stay tuned.

In other breaking news, it's the week of the 4th of July. I'm taking an extra day off to spend up North. The 4th is one of my absolute most favorite holidays. Grilling, boating, lakes, beer, friends and family, warm weather, fireworks. If you don't like any of that, then you probably aren't American.


  1. The 4th is one of my favorite holidays too! So excited it is a 3 day weekend this year!

  2. Looks like you had an amazing time!!! I'm sooo excited about the short work week for the fourth! :)

  3. The 4th is my favorite too! So fun.

    I went to the food truck fair. I couldn't believe how many people came. it was pretty crazy.
