This blog comes to you live from Girl’s Weekend!
(Well, ok…great plans…it’s now 3 days after girls weekend.)
Welcome to the lobby of the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bloomington, Minnesota.
Can you say FANTASTIC?
Just look at the architecture of this place.
It’s modern, almost futuristic, definitely fun, and gorgeous!

Happy Valentine’s Day
A Thankfully Imperfect Woman!
ps…This is in our garage, just outside the door into the house. It’s the middle of winter, so the heater had to be included…and then of course for a winter picnic you’ll need the thermos!
My daughter found this great lamp and spray painted it pink!
Today brings us to my Front Porch.

I crawled out of bed…grumbling, of course. Made myself a cup of tea, grabbed the bag of Cranberry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (I’d picked up at the Farmer’s Market), and sat down with a good book. Soon I realized there just weren’t enough chocolate chips in the cookies for my taste. A hunting I will go (or went). One Hershey bar later…breaking it into rows…put the cookie on top…and…WALAA! Much better. Read more
