Weekend in Photos // Back to Minnesota

Monday, July 1, 2013

Rob and I had a weekend full of good food, cocktails, apartment decorating, IKEA, lots of episodes of House of Cards and a few skits from Portlandia, farmers' market wanderings, and an amazing Saturday evening spent on our patio with Thai takeout.

Now that there's a definitive date set for me to move in, this visit to the Twin Cities felt even more special than the other two. I packed a suitcase full of things and left almost all of them hanging in the closet or nestled in a newly-claimed drawer. I felt less like a tourist and more like I belonged, with a list of favorite places already. (Hint: one of them is the patio.)

This place is pretty amazing in the summer.

  2. I love these pictures. I live in WI and although it's not far from MN, I've never visited. I think that I may change that because the Twin Cities looks so beautiful.

  5. I love the St. Paul Farmer's Market. It's my favorite. Another thing to love about Minnesota, you can always get a beer chaser with your bloody mary :)

  6. That Bloody Mary looks insane! Worth a trip for that alone, I think.

    1. Nope! All the sugars there were amazing. And they had tons of flavored olive oil and vinegars, too!

  13. Did I ever mention that I am in a few episode of House of Cards? Look for me in the episode with the churches (I think 3) and Episode 11! I've never watched the series though - is it good?
