Bowling, Baby Shower & Bike Rides

This weekend was jam packed with fun activities. It started with a little bowling on Thursday night.

 I was doing so well the first game and unfortunately lost by one pin. The second game was a total flop for me. I feel like I usually represent a bit better in my bowling game.

A lot of you don't know this, but next month I'm officially becoming Auntie Ali! This weekend my mom, little sister and I threw my older sister a book themed baby shower. Friday afternoon we spent decorating and prepping the food for the next day.

It was so much fun to be able to plan and throw a shower with and for family. I'll share what we did and what we served in a later post, but for now, here's a sneak peak.

When the baby shower wrapped up and the dishes were washed and packed, a few friends came over to watch some basketball and play a new-to-me card game called Utter Non-sense. It's similar to Cards Against Humanity except this game, the card is an accent and the person who's turn it is has to choose who did the best accent. I did not fare so well in this game, but I did win one round with my Mexican accent and this card.

Sunday was a gorgeous day so I mustered up the strength to join a friend on a bike ride adventure. My bike and I usually stick to the trails in Minneapolis but we finally made it on to some city streets. We biked from UpTown all the way to the Surly Brewery for a couple cold ones. I had not been to the new Surly location and it is very impressive. On the way back we stopped at Fulton since it was on the way. Round trip I believe was around 16 miles. Let me tell you, I was pooped after that, especially fighting the wind on the ride home!

Sunday also brought an exciting moment to my little Etsy shop - another purchase all the way from New England! Don't delay, get your shirts today!
