I Can’t Wait ‘Til Sunday…

I will be able to relax on Sunday. No more events to plan, no more lists to make, no more places to go. I may walk a little lighter that afternoon. But, for now, I’m putting off the list-making/event-planning/place-going to bring you an update of what’s been going on in my world.

Last weekend, in Vermillion, family and friends got together at the Mona Lisi to celebrate my mom’s 50th birthday. My dad and Karyn put together quite the surprise party, and everyone had a super time. The food was delicious, the wine was tasty, and the company was lovely.

Tonight I will be headed to the Nomad for the second installment of Salon Saloon. I’ll be taking a few more photos (hopefully better than last time), and perhaps sketching out a website concept while I’m there (so I guess I will have something to occupy my time after Sunday).

Tomorrow night I’ll be joining a few friends at Café Lurcat during Mpls/St. Paul Magazine’s Restaurant Week. I’ve always wanted to visit this café, and this is a great opportunity! I’m looking forward to an awesome dinner at a fraction of the price.

On Friday I’ll be running around town, finishing up details and buying necessary supplies for Karyn’s baby shower that I’m throwing on Saturday. Family will be in town that night, so I’m not sure if this will cut into my preparation time or not. There are about 30 women coming to the baby shower, which begins at 1 p.m. and I hope it all goes smoothly. But I just remembered something else I have to do… I better get back to list-making.
