Our Vacation...and then some

So this past week was my husband's vacation and Mason's 2nd Birthday.  We hung out and then went to the cities in Minnesota.  We had a lot of fun but by the time we got home, everyone was exhausted and the 2 year molar monster  creeped up on our newly 2 year old.  He has been barely eating and sleeping like crazy.  

But hopefully that is past us and now the good (and a little bad) from this past week/weekend.

Well first off my iPad got shattered...it started small and then the Tornado (Mason) got a hold of it and it was a lost cause.  Thankfully we had bought 1 year insurance on it and just barely made it.  Now we have 2 year insurance...you never know.

Then we got a Betta fish.  We have had them before and they have lived 2 years and more.  However this one?  Dead in a week.  Good thing Mason hasn't noticed.

On Wednesday, I made my first trip to Ikea.  I can't tell you how excited I was.  For at least 2 years I have been begging Guss to take me but he never has.  So we go and I got a bunch of cheap frames and finally (after a lot of wheeling & dealing) I got this beauty.  A gigantic, awesome bookcase...for only $120!!!
Of course we made our way to the Mall of America (which I love but mostly for the food).  We ate at Hooters.  Judge all you want but their wings are awesome.  But the most awesome thing about going to the MOA?  I finally got the Naked Palette.  I couldn't decided between this one and the Naked Palette 2 but finally settled on the original.  It just has more colors I would wear.
I am a huge Art/Art History nerd so I dragged my husband to the Walker Art Center and Sculpture Garden while my parents watched Mason.  My husband muttered many things under is breath about "how is this art?"  and I just loved it all!








And finally...this past week I got a fortune cookie with 2 cookies inside!!!  I hope this means I am doubly lucky and not doubly in trouble.
