Minneapolis weekend of two.

This last weekend, Kley and I took a trip to Minneapolis, just the two of us! Kley's parents watched Norah and took completely wonderful care of her. We missed her so (I cried several times), but it was so nice/important to have time alone. 

Friday night we had dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory with some of our friends from Bethel. It was great to see them again! We had a great time. Kley and I ate there a few times while we were dating, so it was fun to go back. (It's also nice because it's very reasonably priced, and they give you bread, salad, and ice cream with your meal!)


The view from our hotel room!


Saturday morning we had breakfast with one of my old roommates and her fiance, who we met for the first time. We hadn't seen each other in awhile, so it was nice to catch up again.


I always love seeing the Minneapolis skyline.


Saturday afternoon we took a nap, did a little shopping, and saw a movie (Love the Coopers). It was pretty perfect.

Saturday night was a bit of a disappointment, as the Holidazzle parade was cancelled and we didn't call ahead for a reservation at Fogo and they were completely booked. Oops. Thankfully, they still had other Holidazzle events that we went to instead, and we were able to get in for lunch on Sunday at Fogo.

(This picture was taken as we talked up to the restaurant with Kley claiming how excited he was, only to walk right back outside. Sad. But then we just went somewhere else and had bacon cheeseburgers that were delicious.)



We both thought it was funny that one of the booths was selling poffertjes! Poffertjes is a traditional Dutch treat that's basically like small pancakes with powdered sugar on top. They are a Tulip Festival big hit here.



They had a bunch of booths set up like a mini fair. It was fun to walk through, but I did miss the parade!


Walking through downtown is so great.


They had an ice rink there too!


Love seeing the decorated trees!


Then we headed to Macy's 8th floor display- A Day in the Life of an Elf. 


It was fun to walk through again!







He is and always will be my favorite.


Sunday we went to Ikea and Fogo for lunch. We had a great trip and are so thankful we were able to spend time together. Thanks to Brad and Jana for watching Norah! They took such great care of her! They even had the sheets washed, house cleaned, and dinner in the oven for us when we got home. I have the best in-laws!
