Life Lately

This week just flew by, didn't it? For me at least. 

Wednesday was my birthday so my very best friends and I went to a restaurant in Uptown Minneapolis I've been wanting to try, 4Bells

This is their rooftop and totally where I would want to get married if I wasn't already. Can my dining room look like this, please? 

For Rich's birthday we went to Butcher and the Boar and Rich made friends with the owner over the summer and he told us about his newest restaurant that we had to go try. 

The food at both places did NOT disappoint. 

Obligatory: 'What I ate' pic: The Brick Chicken. The server was describing it to us and when I heard lemon butter and capers I was game. 

Afterwards we went to an '80s themed adults-only arcade.

I dominated at SkeeBall. My Jam. 

For those in the Minnesota-area you need to visit Up-Down in Uptown. 
. . . 

Wednesday was also the day Olivia's new big girl bed arrived. We got her a brand new, queen size bed that she still won't sleep in. 

So guess where Rich and I take turns napping now? That thing is amazing. 

. . . 

I know I say this all the time but I'm finally going to post my newest prints to my Etsy shop this weekend. 
Hint: Wellie boots, dinosaurs, ninja turtles, pretty florals, modern geo patterns. Just wait. 

. . . 

That's all folks. Have a great weekend. We've got big zoo plans as well as having everyone over on Sunday to watch football with lots of family, friends, food, and sweatpants.
