Weekend Review 30

After the week I had I knew the weekend wasn't going to slow down any. My friend Laura came to town on Friday night and soon after pouring a glass of wine we walked over to Coup d'etat to meet some friends of hers that were in town for the Gopher football game.

Whenever Laura comes to town we always go to Coup d'etat and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite restaurants whether it's just for a fun cocktail, dinner or their cheese curds from their late night walk up window. Since I had already ate dinner, we split the gnocchi which was delish!

After dinner we walked over to Boneyard for a nightcap and their nachos. They recently revamped their menu and it looks pretty good. The nachos had pulled pork, ham and bacon in it. Yum!

We didn't get to bed till after 2:30 am which was not smart on our end since we had our alarms set for 7:00 am. It's a good thing college football games are so early because I don't have the motivation to tailgate in the morning. But, we did get ourselves ready and got to the tailgate lot by 9:00. Luckily I had some bubbly and orange juice and we stopped at Isles Bun and Bakery to pick up some cinnamon rolls and puppy dog tails.

This was my very first Gopher football game and it was a blast!

After the game we went over to Stub & Herbs for some post game drinks and lunch where we met the Captain and had way too much fun dancing with our giant Captain heads.

For whatever reason we really felt the need to go all out and continue our day of drinking at The Local and finally ended the night at Republic

Laura left Sunday morning and I headed over to my parents house to hang out with Miley and see what doTerra oils might help my knee pain. I took a drop of the digestzen and that helped get rid of my heart burn, but nothing we tried was helping my knee pain. When I got home I iced it and that allowed me to sleep through the night, but as soon as I start walking, the pain is very real.

The Monster Dash 1/2 marathon is this weekend, and I'm really nervous/upset/annoyed that there's a big chance I won't be able to run at all.  This weeks plan is to just take it really easy, stay away from heels and ice the heck out of my knee in hopes that I can hit the pavement in a couple of days.


  1. Sounds like a fun weekend! Hope your knee feels better soon!!

  2. Good luck at the Monster Dash. I hope you're able to do it Ali~!
