March 2019 March 31 2019

It's always such a nice sign of spring in March when the snow starts melting and warmer days and more sunshine are around. It's been a full month and I look forward to the coming months with more warmer days ahead!

We started the month by having our food tasting at Jax Cafe for #thislittleweddingofours ! It was a fun date night and we loved how the matchbooks were all set-up with our wedding date on the table when we arrived. The food was delicious and I can't wait now for our wedding dinner this fall!

      

My cousin Heather came in town and we grabbed brunch at a cute little place in St. Paul and caught up on life. We had breakfast sandwiches at Augustine's and enjoyed the leisurely morning. 

      

This month I grabbed coffee at a few new places: Five Watt in NorthEast Minneapolis and Gray Fox Coffee in downtown Minneapolis - both were quite good coffee!

      

We celebrated Frankie's 7th birthday! I can't believe he is already 7 years old - seems like just yesterday he was a little pup climbing in our laps. His birthday was complete with a fun "Happy Barkday to Me" bandana and new toys and treats! He truly is the best pup ever!

      

Shawn and I went to the Auto Show in downtown Minneapolis. We've gone several years now and it's a fun way to see all the different cars and dream about what our next one might be!

We celebrated St. Patricks Day at Bad Weather Brewing with my parents. Even Frankie put on his green bow tie for the day.

    

Lots of fun crafting items arrived this month from Thatch and Thistle, as well as another great The Hi Five from 1canoe2

      

Shawn and I went to Stillwater on a sunny spring Friday to look at wedding rings at Allure by Greatons Jewelry and start planning what we want to do. We first grabbed lattes at MADE Coffee and later grabbed lunch with his parents at Feller which is located inside the Lora Hotel. I would highly recommend the burger there!

        

At the end of the month Shawn was honored with the Outstanding Student Award in Engineering CAD Technology from Century College. He has worked so hard in his program and this award was very well deserved. My parents and his parents were all able to be there for the ceremony and we went to dinner afterwards to celebrate. 

        

April is National Letter Writing Month and I am once again doing the #write_on challenge - to send 30 letters (handwritten pieces of mail) out over the 30 days of April. I gathered all my snail mail materials and stocked up on some fun cards to send out!
