It was a pretty busy weekend for me, starting on Thursday. Sara came into town for bridesmaid duty (congrats Jen and Dominic), so I had to pick her up. While she went to Mizzou for 4 years, she’s had exposure to the city, so we did a mini sightseeing tour: drove around Forest Park, then headed over to the Central West End, where we had lunch, then picked up some cupcakes from The Cupcakery….seriously, if you’ve never been there, you’re missing out. Best. cupcakes. evar.
Friday was spent hanging out with Jessi at her job. Ended up having dinner with her as well. Made plans for Saturday.
Saturday I headed out to the pumpkin patch with Jessi. Ended up getting 2 huge pumpkins, one medium one (for cooking), and several small weird looking gourds. Also picked up two mums for the front porch. We had lunch there too, which consisted of crappy nachos for me (the only thing that was vegetarian), and a beautiful looking chili dog for Jessi. Then we headed over to the farmer’s market, where I went a little crazy on the produce, but it was ok, because it was super cheap. Too bad it’s 20 miles away. I don’t want to have to do that every week.
Sunday, Matt and I headed to Clayton to pick Sara up from the hotel, and had lunch at Blueberry hill. Stopped by Vintage Vinyl and picked up two cds I’ve been meaning to get for a while- Whiskey on a Sunday by Flogging Molly and The Whole Fam Damnily by The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band. Rocked out to “Your Cousin’s on Cops,” ate some ice cream at Cold Stone, then dropped Sara off at the airport.
All in all, a really good weekend. Except for driving around the airport. It sucks ass.
