happy hour, thirty one party, family play date

my friday night started off right when i met my friends anna and michelle for happy hour at george and the dragon. i've been meaning to check out this place for quite a while and it did not disappoint. we had drinks and shared fried green beans, a pretzel roll, and a caprese panini. all were delicious! it was nice to catch up with the girls as well. 

saturday morning thatcher, azalea, and i ran some errands and then i headed up to a caribou in maplewood for a thirty one party hosted by the lovely andrea. now i'm the first to admit i normally avoid these kinds of parties like the plague, but i've been eyeing my friends' thirty one bags for years, so was actually excited to go! it was a nice intimate group and we had a private room at caribou. a couple other blogger girls, sarah and lauren came too, so it was fun to see them! i ended up buying a cosmetic bag and a wristlet wallet (but i wanted to buy so much more!). i can't wait for them to come in a couple weeks. here was the group, minus one person who left before we took a picture: 

melissa, lauren, me, sarah, and andrea

azalea and i hung in the late afternoon while thatcher went to a birthday party. first we went to babies r us to get a shower gift for my friend mollie who is having triplets this summer (yes, for real! 3 boys! follow along!). i debated stopping at the play area at southdale to kill more time, but opted to just go home instead. when i got home, i looked at my phone and had a text from my friends jeromy and becky saying they and their little girl linnea were at the southdale play area and were wondering if we want to come join them. too funny, huh? so azalea and i jumped back in the car and met up with them. it was a fun little spontaneous get together :) the rest of the evening, thatcher and i played with azalea and then watched a movie after she went to sleep. 

sunday morning our friends nate, missy, and their two kids cameron (2) and mallory (5 mo) came over to hang out. we hadn't seen them since mallory was a newborn, so it was nice to catch up! 



i relaxed in the afternoon while azalea napped (read: took a nap too - gotta make up that lost hour somehow). in the evening, i went to yoga with my neighbor rebekah for the first time in like...8 months. we used to go to corepower yoga pretty regularly together  but then she started going to a pre-natal place when she was pregnant  and i...was just lazy. ha. i'm hoping we get back in the habit because last night i realized how much i missed it. it was a nice way to un-wind from an eventful weekend.
