Weekend Wrap Up 4/17

Cody was away for a bachelor party so I had a whole weekend wide open to spend however I pleased. It was also 70 degrees all weekend and could not have been more beautiful.

Friday Night

I saw Cody off and then went for a walk around Lake Calhoun with my sister. It was definitely windy but the temperature was amazing.

Then I met up with my friend Abby for dinner at Rusty Taco.

I called it an early night and enjoyed sleeping in the middle of the bed with the cats.


I got a blissful 10 and a half hours of sleep and then spent the morning in the sunroom with some books, a bagel, coffee and kombucha.

We had a girls night that evening and had snacks and cocktails on my friend's patio. Then we headed out for drinks at a new bar that is styled as a "speakeasy" with no marked entrance and 1920's decor.

Moscow Mule
Strawberry Cheesecake Cup
Fizzy Lemon Drop Martini

It was really good to connect with the girls and laugh all night. Somehow we didn't even take a picture together.


I made a meal for my friend who is a brand new mama. I'm so excited to meet her new baby girl tomorrow.

I also tried InstaCart for the first time. It's a grocery delivery service that uses your local stores. The shoppers use their own cars and are paid as independent contractors. You pay the price of the groceries and a delivery fee (between $4 and $10) and then you tip the shopper/driver. What I don't understand is how they make money. I read some people said online that they charge above store prices but their website claims that they are the same. Has anyone else used them? Anyway, it was nice to have groceries just show up at my door!

Linking up with Biana!


  1. it would certainly be nice to have groceries delivered to your door! i've never tried a service like that before.

  2. Sounds like such a fun weekend! That speakeasy sounds really cool. We have a few of that style bars here, but nothing with the hidden door and no signage. Have a great week!

  3. Ohh I have been craving a Moscow mule for a while now! One of my favorites! Those kind of bars are my favorite, it's nice that they tend to be less noisy and crowded.

  4. I've been wanting to try kombucha.. how often do you drink it? It's like good for gut health, right? 10 and a half hours of sleep sounds so crazy to me hahaha but WONDERFUL crazy

  5. i have never heard of or tried instacart but it sounds interesting. oooh pretty books! i have read me before you, but the other 2 are on my list.

  6. What a fun and relaxing weekend! Jealous of your 70° weather! I never heard of instacart! I'd be nervous to trust some randomn person to do my shopping. Although there are some kroger's that I've heard have an online shopping/pickup option for free!
