12 Years!

Chubby Hubby and I are celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary this weekend. I can't believe how fast time flies. It truly seems like just yesterday we were crazy college freshmen and now we are 35 years old, homeowners, minivan drivers, and parents 3 times over.

That was then....





This is now....
I have the BEST parents EVER! They booked a night in a hotel for us downtown Minneapolis as a mini-getaway. The stayed with the kiddos and we got to paint the town red.

Us at the light rail station on our way Downtown.

???????


Drinks with Dinner
Stopped by to see a friend who was working and had another drink here
Amateur night is every Thursday in case anyone is interested in becoming a stripper
MORE DRINKS!
Oh look, I switched to Martinis. Um FYI....Beer + Martinis = Sick
Yes, we really are that lame. What you don't see is the clock. It reads 11:30PM and we are watching the news with our feet up. We really know how to live it up!
We got the opportunity to try out the sleep number bed...45 is my sleep number and I slept great!

We had a fabulous time! I can't thank my parents enough for the most awesome gift. We don't get out much because of our schedules. This was a real treat. As an added bonus, my brother's now ex-girlfriend gave us a free upgrade to a king suite on the club floor of the hotel. She works for that company and was able to hook us up. It was pretty sweet!

It was kind of a crazy week here at house but I did manage to get a few runs in this past week. I hope to run 6 days this upcoming week. I need to run that much to burn off all the empty calories from this weekend.
