Monday Round Up: Busy Nights + Sunny Days

Monday, May 09, 2016

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend like I did. Unfortunately going to work today feels...well...terrible. It was a gorgeous weekend around here and the thought of sitting in a windowless office today is hard to wrap my brain around. I will just have to fill my head with thoughts of sunnier days. Speaking of which, lets get to the weekend!

Friday I went to a concert at the Turf Club. I have been there two other times and was excited to go back. It's a great place to see a show. Not too big where you are will too far from the stage, but also tables. Glorious tables. You see, standing for 3 hours does not appeal to me anymore. It is a cool old place that has a lot of character. I went with my parents to see the Seratones. Two bands opened for them, both local. The first was ok. Pretty good musicians but need some fine tuning. The second band, was super confusing to me and I decided that I will never get that time back. Le sigh. It was totally worth it to see the Seratones. They had so much energy and that girl can sing! At one point she took her tambourine and jumped in the crowd. She sang a couple of songs while there was essentially a mosh pit. Amazing!




Saturday we had some friends over to brew. We headed up to our favorite brew shop to grab a few items. Turns out it was customer appreciation day and they had food, beer, a raffle and free stuff in the back. Apparently no one knew about it so we were out there alone with one of the workers. Free beer and stuff? Win! Basically the guy gave us a swag bag full of stuff and we entered in the raffle that he said we basically had a great chance of winning. It was awesome. Then we headed home to brew and grill. Saturday was stunning. 70s and sunny so we brewed outside and talked. It was basically the perfect afternoon. That night D and I went out in Northeast Minneapolis for a couple of drinks. Ending the night at crowd favorite Tony Jaro's for their famous greenie drinks, which I am pretty sure are some kind of limeade and vodka. Delicious. 




Sunday was mother's day and of course another gorgeous day. 70s and sunny again. Can you see why I don't want to be in a windowless office all day? My sisters, mother and niece and I went to the 50th & France area of Edina for lunch and shopping. If you aren't from here, this area is kind of a hubbub for restaurants and shopping. It's an affluent area so some of the shops are a bit pricey but it's fun to look. We started with lunch at Pig & Fiddle. We made reservations because everything was totally packed but we were literally 1 of 3 tables of people there. Oh well. It is more a beer place but I had a mimosa because it felt like brunch to me and a turkey and avocado sandwich that definitely filled my appetite for the day. Then we did a little shopping. What's not to like? A gorgeous day with food and shopping is awesome. We don't often get to spend time together like that so it was fun.



How gorgeous are these flowers?

Sunday was a pretty warm day and I knew we would be outside so I needed to dress the part. I bought this top from Target a while back and have not been able to wear it. Seriously, I probably bought it about a month ago. I can't wear it to work obviously and the weekends have not been warm enough, but times have changed. I'll be honest it is a little more blousey than I had hoped but I think future I could tuck it into a maxi skirt or something and it would look totally rad. I love the crotchet top and long fringe. It's cloth though, not yarn which I love more. So comfortable. I kept it simple with the jean and some bracelets. I did jazz it up with these shoes I got from Target the other day that are amazing and only $20!! They come in a couple of colors and are amazing. Definitely get your hands on them. It was perfect for a shopping day. What do you think?
