{random bits from our weekend + an upcoming trip}

antique pretties from city salvage, minneapolis

happy sunday, friends! i hope you’ve had a great + busy weekend. friday was zack’s birthday, the big #27, so we celebrated with his parents coming from michigan. zack took the day off work and we enjoyed an extra-long weekend, a rarity around here! ;] we’ve spent our time together cooking meals at the house, eating cupcakes + pie, playing video games {zack}, watching downton abbey {the girls} and of course snoozin’, morning coffee and a long walk around our neighborhood with bauer. on saturday we snuck away to city salvage — i knew my mother-in-law would love it but i think everyone enjoyed the fun shop… win!

i have not felt well these last few days and a few times a day i stop to pray that it ends quickly. we have a super busy week coming up with blissdom happening. i fly out to nashville wednesday morning and in the meantime i have a few things to finish for the handmade market. yeow! if you’re around please come by and say hellooooo!!! i’ll be packing my suitcase before i know it and stepping on a plane. any prayers you can send my way for that feat would be great ♥

such a sunny, beautiful day here in minneapolis… wishing you the same kind of day wherever you are, too! xoxo

    Oh, thank you!! We were actually at the Old Spaghetti Factory a few months ago and I told my husband that there was this ice cream shop that you went to and love…but of course I couldn’t remember the name! It was Sebastian Joe’s– thanks :)

    AND…we are huge Buca Di Beppo fans, too!

    I’m starting to prepare for Blissdom also! I have a pile of clothes in my room that needs to be dwindled down, honestly I don’t need 10 outfits for 3 days, even if I changed 3 times a day. I am probably equally excited and nervous for my first one! I feel better knowing my roomie I have yet to meet is picking me up at the airport. I think it will help me feel less nervous. I have some movies downloaded onto my ipod to help keep me calm on the plane-I recommend this. It’s worked best for me so far. Good luck with your final pre-travel lists and I can’t wait to meet you soon!

    Maggie, hope you feel better doll. But I’m sure with all the buzz going around you soon, you won’t have to worry whether you’re feeling a little down or not ;) Have fun doll.
