Life Lately!

Hellllllo! Finally, a blog post and just to warn… it’s full of pictures!!

Life has been busy and slow at the same time the last few months and I’ve missed this little blogging community and am glad to be back at least a few times a week (that’s the goal!).

Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to the last few months!

You know our love for Bingo on Saturdays and our good friends finally joined us for it!

We didn’t win, imagine that, but it was good to catch up and enjoy a frivolous day!

My doctor’s office is near this little gem of a spot!

They have cookie dough donuts along with chocolate bacon donuts and so many more!

We went to a charity dinner for a charity Logan works with through work.

There were some games, silent auctions and good food!

And this might have happened…. thanks to Logan!

*Correction, it’s a trip to St. Lucia – any tips or advice, let me know!

My poor sweet grandpa passed away in February, but we were thankful to spend more time with this special lady! I mentioned previously that I lived with my Grandparents for 2 years in college and again at the end of my Senior Year and I will always cherish that time with them!

Love my cousins!

And I got to spend a little more time with this sweet girl!

You can’t tell but her sleeper has flamingos on them!! So stinkin’ cute!

We celebrated this guy turning 30 with a dinner of his choice; Chinese!

And Gayle registered for graduation so we went out in St. Paul for lunch to celebrate!

I had brunch with these lovely ladies who I hadn’t seen in forever – no joke… since like November!!

Loved catching up!!

I met up with Ashton for a mani and coffee date! We started these little dates back last year and they are just SUCH a good time to chat 🙂

Love this girl and am so thankful for our friendship!

We stopped by Elaine and Adams for some St Patrick Day fun!

It’s always fun chatting with these girls!

Then we headed back to Elaine’s so I could use my new camera to snap a few pics of this cute guy!

I mean…. 😍😍

Such a cutie!

We celebrated my Brothers birthday last week – with my Sister and Nieces!

And was lucky enough to spend a few days with my sister and nieces!

We experienced the Mirror Maze at Mall of America!

The girls rode all the rides they could!img_4607While my Sister and I hit up Sugarfina..

The girls enjoyed a trampoline type park that just opened by us, one morning!


It was actually pretty sweet all the stuff they had!


And hit up Bachmans Spring Home tour! A definite favorite!


And ended the day with an Escape Room with my nieces!


We had done one other Escape Room with my inlaws previously but this was a lot different; you had to solve and answer 3 questions before getting out (and you had to figure out how to escape as well). It was pretty cool and the girls loved it!

The girls left the next morning to celebrate Easter at my Grandma’s the Saturday before Easter and Logan and I hit up the Opera!


Wanting to try something new (Logan’s idea!), we bought tickets to Rigoletto at the Ordway and enjoyed a night at the Theatre!


We didn’t know what to expect but it was hard to read the subtitles above and watch the show!  It wasn’t our favorite thing (we’re more into musicals and plays) but it was worth a try!


That’s a wrap! Logan cooked a huge turkey (aren’t we supposed to be eating ham on Easter? was my response! Ha!) on Sunday and we enjoyed a real Thanksgiving feast 🙂

Well, that’s a wrap!

What have you been up to lately?!

    So many things going on for you! I’m sorry to hear about your grandpa. And wait, you won a trip to St. Lucia?! That is awesome! My in-laws went and loved it and that was one of the spots we were looking at this year but decided on another. That is going to be amazing! Sierra~Beautifully Candid

    What a fun few months you’ve had! Always bright and gorgeous in Lilly, no doubt! I’m sorry about your Grandfather. My condolences to you and your family. I’m excited for your trip to St Lucia! I’ve been once on a cruise decades ago and remember it being so lush with beautiful flowers and the water…oh my. Get those bathing suits packed and ready!

    We went to st. Lucia for our honeymoon! Also- did you like Do Do? We were there a couple of weekends ago and I was not a fan. I don’t think I would eat cookie dough like that again!
