Is it really MONDAY already??

Another weekend of wonderfulness. Reflecting on it… this is our last weekend of calm before some crazy May & June (ohh and July) weekends. Not complaining, they are just VERY full! Which I love…

FIRST! Ruby Shoe Co. Giveaway Winners:
Raquel sweet girl – You won the set of cards!!
Alecia, sweet new blog friend - You won the t-shirt!!

Josh and I checked out The Dead Sea Scroll Exhibit at the Science Museum in St. Paul. It was incredible!

No cameras were allowed in the display… MAJOR bummer! I did get a shot on my phone (sorry for the poor quality). Joshy is holding a “Audio Guide”. It guided us through the exhibition. We learned a LOT about the Scrolls… where they originated… how much work it was to piece them together. Quite elaborate!

My history buff hubby enjoyed it! I am not so keen to history, so it was good to learn too :)
After that we headed to our hotel: Millennium Minneapolis


Pretty cute hotel! It was PACKED… there were 2 weddings taking place. So fun to see the Wedding Parties and all the guests.

We ate at The News Room on Nicollet Mall for din. It was delish!

We were SO impressed with the 2-level Target in Mpls. They even had an escalator for your CART. We got a cart JUST so we could try it out :) Too fun…

GoodMornin’ Sunshine – breakfast in bed. Could it get any better? This came with the night stay… and it was yummy-yum-yum! I love being married to this cute man… he is so adorable, even in the morning! :) (and loves me EVEN in the morning…)

Our weekend ended with a day-date with Bre & Dana. I took their engagement photos and we met up for lunch! They are too cute for words and we love spending time with them! There are SO many wonderful engagement pictures… I have to leave you with just one of my favorites:


A-m-a-z-i-n-g! Models, that’s for sure! June 25th = Marriage!!

Have a great start to your week all :)
