Friday Favorites: Girls Weekend Edition!
Linking up with Andrea for Friday Favorites!

We've got another fabulous girls weekend in the books!  This is our fourth year doing it, the first year we went to Vegas, and the last 2 years we did a weekend in Stillwater.
This year Tonia planned it all and we had no idea what we were doing, it was awesome!
She picked us up on Wednesday night and we headed to the cities to stay with Christi.  We got there and had drinks and played cards.  We didn't go to bed until 2 am, yowsa!

Thursday morning we were lazy, had a few screwdrivers, played some cards and had a dance party!

After having lunch, we went to Vertical Endeavors in downtown Minneapolis.  I am SO not a rock climbing gal, but I LOVED it!  I scaled the top 4 times (it's only 25 feet) and it was so much fun to try the different walls.  I was really pleased with how strong I felt!

After working up a sweat, we walked across the street to Glam Doll Donuts.  Um, YUMM!!!  I had the salted caramel and chocolate donut and it was scrumptious!!

We stayed at the Grand Hotel and boy was that an experience!  So fancy.  We walked in and were greeted with a glass of wine, everyone was SO friendly and welcoming!
They even left us a bottle of champagne and some girls weekend decor, so fun!

For dinner that night we ate at Seven which is a sushi/steakhouse.  It was a gorgeous night so we sat out on the rooftop dining area which was awesome!

My beautiful ladies!

Being a country gal, it was so fun to live the city night life for one night!

Unfortunately later that night Christi's purse was stolen.  Such a bummer on such a fun night.
We got home around 3 on Friday and it was so nice to know that we had a whole weekend to relax!
Saturday after Alayna's party we met some friends at the La to watch to Kentucky Derby.  I was excited to wear a hat for the first time!  Brad didn't have a hat, so Maren (our favorite bartender, is that bad that I regularly text her???) gave him a party hat, haha!!

It was a great weekend, but I was kind of glad it was over with how busy we were!

What a fun weekend! Sounds like you ladies had an awesome time. Your poor friend! Having your purse stolen is such a nightmare.

It sounds like you had a wonderful girls weekend! Being from a small town, I totally get enjoying a night out in the big city!

Looks like you had a great time! I've never done a rock climbing wall, but I really want to!

And that hotel sounds awesome! Any hotel that leaves me champagne is a good hotel in my book. :)
