All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go.

Well we've been out and about a little bit lately.

Back when we went to the rain forest cafe last month we signed up for their club card which includes a couple other restaurants in Minneapolis and you pay $25 for it and then get $25 for signing up and then $25 every year for you birthday. We thought it was a good deal. So we went to bubba gump shrimp co. which is one the the restaurants for dinner the other week and it was pretty cute and kinda good. Compared to rain forest cafe I wasn't impressed with the food.  But the set up was really cute.

Next month is my birthday so i guess we will Have to eat out and we are definitely going back to rain forest.

We also explored downtown Saint Paul a little bit today because chad had a job interview at the science museum so we went down to the water and walked around which was freezing and then over to the giant Saint Paul's cathedral. The cathedral was just amazing. First we just walked around it and it was hard to take a picture of it because its just soo big. And then chad went inside and i forced myself to be brave and followed him. At first we went through some doors that just had classrooms and a little chapel and then were going to leave but saw someone go into another door which we followed into which lead to the giant... chapel? .. not sure what its called.. but it was beautiful. We walked around for awhile. I felt scared to take pictures inside even though there was a sign that said you could so i just took a few quick ones but they don't even do it justice. Its just so grand. I wish building were built like this these days. Also all these pictures are on my phone. :( All day i took pictures with my film camera though so we will see if those turned out eventually!

I gotta cold beer with your name on it.

Chad and I have been attempting to wake up earlier these days and by earlier I just mean up and ready for the day by 12, and so i've ended up with some extra time and decided to do some crafting. 

Heres a little jar I decorated to hold my vitamins. hmm.. that made me sound like an old lady?. Anyways... Im going crazy not knowing the gender of the baby, we still have about 4 more weeks, and i am looking forward to making stuff for the future babies room. My baby pinterest board is filling up of baby room ideas with too many to decide on. 

And.. it was Saint Patrick's day. We didn't do much for it but i wanted to celebrate it in some way so i made lucky charm rice crispy treats.

And I'm like, And I'm like...

I attempted making homemade poptarts. I thought it would be a great idea since chad loves poptarts and the recipe asked for my food processor.  I used this recipe from pinterest. First problem I had was my food processor is a mini one so i had to split up the dough ingredients into two. Which worked out but i guess i mixed it too much before adding the egg and milk.... but i added flower till it felt normal again. Second problem i don't have a rolling pin so the poptarts were too thick. 

But all in all i liked them. Next time I'll just make the dough a little sweeter and thinner. 

Also my final grade in my first grad school class was an -A. Im now taking two classes per term (8 week course) and its a lot of work. But i've planned out my classes and i'll just have my final thesis class left by January 2015 and then i'll graduate. So pretty exciting stuff!
