Floating Down the River

This past weekend I flew out to Minneapolis to spend a few days glamping with my friends.  I won’t get into the fiasco with the missed flight because it all ended well and I was able to get to where I needed to be – just a few hours later.

I arrived in Minneapolis early Friday morning and had breakfast with son #2.  We ended up going to Waffles and Black Coffee in the U-District.  I highly recommend this place for the waffles!  I ordered the Strawberry Shortcake Waffle and OMG it was so freaking good!  I didn’t think I would be able to eat the whole thing – but I was wrong!  I ate the WHOLE thing and didn’t regret a single morsel of it!  Sorry no pictures of the waffle – but I took one of the Chai Lattee they gave me!  How cute it that?


Glamping was in Lanesboro which is about 2 hours south of the Twin Cities.  It’s a cute little town, rolls up during the winter, but during the summer there is people all over the place enjoying tubing on the Root River, biking along the trails, camping, shopping and even a theater group that is actually really good!

The picture below is of son #2, my BFF, her daughter and her mom and step-dad!  When I talk about my Minnesota family – this is who I’m talking about!


One of the gals in our Glamping groups lent me a trailer for the weekend and let me just say – if I ever sell Athena, I might just consider getting a trailer with a pop-out!  Wow!  There was SO MUCH room – it was like staying in a mobile home!  I love how she made it all homey for us!  She even put out a scency candle and linens!


We drove back into Minneapolis early on Sunday so I could have lunch with both my boys before I had to catch my flight back to Seattle (I wasn’t about to miss another flight!).  I won’t get into the slobbery cry session when I left or  how much I miss them  – if you are a mom – you get it!  Even though they are men now, they will always be my boys.


I can’t yet show you the hand project I took with me to work on.  It is a ‘commissioned’ piece and because it’s not finished I don’t want to ruin the surprise for anyone.  I will say though that it is a crochet piece – and was super easy to tuck in my bag and work on during the flight to and from Minneapolis.  I’m curious, if you are a quilter what type of projects to you bring to work on when you can’t bring a sewing machine?
