This weekend was filled with Food!
My friend Ryan had a video release party for his new single and played a short show on Friday night! There was a lot of great snacks to be had! I had a little of everything...
He and the director of the video hand made giant feathers that hung from the ceiling of the art gallery, SpotArt in NorthEast Minneapolis. It was a wonderful event and the atmosphere was chill and I got to see a lot of my friends and spend time with the sweetheart!
Sophisticated ladies out on the town!
Saturday morning I was up (bright?) but not early and headed to one of my favorite brunch spots in Minneapolis to meet Jen! It was a great breakfast meeting--we caught up with a little girl talk, we talked about public speaking and about branding. She's such a great friend to have!
I had the Smoked Salmon Benedict: smoked salmon on savory scones with poached eggs, hollandaise sauce and greens. So. Good. Unreal.
Then, like a total sweetheart, my sweetheart drove me down to see my Mom (he was headed that way, but what a gesture!) I got to spend Saturday night and Sunday with my Mom! Just a lot of talking and a little shoe shopping:
new black flats that bring out my Audrey Hepburn side...
We hung out and even indulged on some.....
Girl Scout Cookies!
Thanks to my sweetheart, we all had some Samoas. I have to say, he made the weekend pretty sweet! LUCKILY, even after the drive down, the night with mom and the drive up, there were STILL some left when I got home. I am surprised and impressed.
THIS is what having 10 min in Trader Joe's will supply me with:
Not too shabby, but three of my veggies where packages and not bulk. With 10 minutes to remember everything and get in and out, the packaged veggies were just easier to comprehend and grab!
Looking forward to another week of the seasoned Chickpeas on salad and with rice and the carrot ginger soup! Plus I am trying their 100% dried fruit bars and will report later this week!
I felt like it was a full weekend of FOOD and shopping, the shoes, Trader Joes and one stop at Target is enough for me to pull the reins back!! On to the NEW week and a new start will all our goals and work!
What is ONE goal you are going to accomplish this week?
I have 2 writing projects I will finish before Thursday!
