It was SUCH a nice day out. I wanted to walk to a restaurant and sit out on a patio. So I came home, and forced my hungover roommate to go on an Uptown adventure with me. We walked to Pat’s Tap, and ended up sitting inside. The patio was in the shade, and it’s just not that warm yet. They have good bloody marys.I’m SO ready to live alone, but I sure am going to miss this girl.After our bloodies, we walked to Uptown Tavern, my stinking gravity hole of bars. I always end up there, and I am rarely impressed (I think it’s just a vibe thing). For the first time ever, we ventured to the “game-y” section of the bar where we played big game hunter (I’m obsessed with this game!) and beer pong. Then we walked back to the apartment to watch Frozen. And we found a cat along the way.
Most of the time (when I’m not in the woods or on the water), I wonder why I live in Minnesota.
I need more sunshine.
Well today, to celebrate the warmth and the sensation of actually wanting to move (and not lay curled up in bed all day), I took a walk with my friend Spencer.
We walked around a lake, dodging the mad sidewalk rivers from all the melting snow. We chatted, and returned to the apartment with smiles on our faces.
And a pathetic burn in our leg muscles.
My friend is having a baby.
For day 18, I went to her Gender Reveal Party. Today I went to her baby shower.
I saw my family, I saw my friends, and I ate a lot of sweets.
It was wonderful, except for the champagne flute explosion in my eye. (Insert dramatic “in agony” noises here.)
Tonight I stayed at my friend Spencer’s apartment. We watch How to Marry a Millionaire, and ordered pizza. She also made cookies (that I ate), and I sketched a weird Marilyn while she worked on her graphic design stuff. I’ll probably use it for some stationary–haha!
For a Friday night, it was pretty cheap.
Spread the love!
So, my blog posts have been stacking up.
I’m just going to shove this one online and be done with it.
I have no photos, since this letter was very personal. I used “Handwriting Day,” as an excuse to finally write an apology letter I had been putting off. I also checked off the benicebox‘s task of “forgiving someone…” myself. I can now say that I’ve done what I can, and I need to move on (and heal).
Today my coworker and I went to Kramarcuk’s for some delicious grub after work. Red Cabbage has got to be on my top ten favorite food list.The pyrohy’s were contenders for that list too. Why didn’t I order some to go? I could be eating in bed as I type this.
Oh and they have beer mugs for $3 when you order beer. What a steal! Especially when you need another beer mug (sigh/eye-roll).The food and service was superb (I will be back!). The trip to the restaurant–situated in downtown Minneapolis–was head-shake worthy (during the after-work rush hour), but it has a parking lot. So that was NICE.
