This Thursday Steve and I are taking advantage of Restaurant Week in the Twin Cities (does your city do this? A list of restaurants offering 3 course dinners for a fixed price..) and going to The Oceanaire - I'm SO flipping excited. not only have I wanted to check this place out for YEARS, but after the Taste event Steve and I went to a few weeks ago where I was able to sample some of their food.. it's all I can think about. I could live off seafood if I had a better paying job.
Saturday we are going up to Duluth for a Halloween party. I have all the supplies for my costume, but I've yet to make/put it together (you'll see next week in pictures). I hope to take advantage of The Anchor Bar while we're up there - last time we tried to go we were barely noticed to order our food, so we left. Bad service or no bad service, I want to eat their food.
The weekend after that, we are going to be downtown Minneapolis for my cousin's fiance's 25th birthday party. It should prove to be a good time!
This past weekend was a shit ton of fun! I'll share all the photos from my weekend after I tell you about it.
On Friday I planned a last minute photo shoot of my brother and his family Cayden is about 1 and a half, Jordan is 4 - and they are so damn cute! Some of the photos have turned out so wonderful!
After that I took Jordan over to my moms place and the 3 of us went to the pumpkin patch to let Jordan play with all the stuff and ride a pony and jump in the bouncy house... she had a blast and I love watching her grow up and see how she interacts with other kids!
Saturday we ran some errands and then went home and started drinking before 5pm... and drank until midnight. I edited photos for the most part (even though I wanted to work on my Halloween costume) and we watched The Wizard of Oz on Blu-Ray. It was a good night, simple, low key, and I got to spend it with the man of my dreams.
Sunday we headed to the train station to make our way downtown Minneapolis to tailgate and then go to the Vikings vs. Packers game. We got drunk, I shotgunned my first beer, the Vikings lost, but overall I'd say the day was a big WIN! It was Steve, myself, my brother, and my girl Amanda.
Monday (yesterday) after work Steve and I headed over to my friend Abbie's house to carve pumpkins and eat dinner! This is our second year doing this down at Abbie's house. It was Abbie and Nick, Pam and Nick, Steve and myself, and our friend Amanda. Pam is preggers and due in 3 weeks... this is probably the last time I'll see her before she is a mama! I'm so excited for her - a few weeks ago her man proposed (totally forgot to blog about that)... so they are engaged as well!
What a successful few days!

|Mid shotgun (I look pro; don't I?)|
|The end of the shotgun (my brother is slow)|
|Afterwards, the dude taking the picture said "Say Skol!!!" which just solidifies the fact that saying "Cheese" during a picture really is the best thing to say! LOL, I love this picture!|

I'm going to try and take some better photos of them lit up at our house tonight - so hard to see them here.
That's all :-P
