Winter Carnival!

 I love this place that celebrates winter with such a fun party!  AND serves wine from an ice bar!  Awesome!

Evening Commute

Bumper to bumper traffic leaves you plenty of time to enjoy a lovely sunset.

Snooty Patooty

I'm pretty sure there's not a Louis Vuitton store in Saint Paul.  Edina Galleria.

And so it begins......

....if picking out appliances is THIS stressful, I'm not sure I'm gonna make it through this kitchen reno.    All Inc.  Plato Boulevard near Harriet Island.

New Breakfast Spot

The hubs found a new breakfast spot.  The hashbrowns were awesome and my pancake was bigger than my plate!  Service was fantastic and we will be back.
University Avenue and 280.

It Was A Blast Red Bull! Thanks!!

 Despite the enormous crowd, the slippery slopes and unsure footing, the cold and the horrid stench of Red Bull everywhere, I thoroughly enjoyed my second trip back to Crashed Ice.
 And Saint Paul represented!  The crowd was jolly, happy, helpful and kind to those around them.  Sure, there were some drunkards here and there, but the Minnesota nice shone through.
 And although I couldn't see much of the actual competition through all the bodies, the noise of the crowd helped fill in some of the gaps.
And the cameras everywhere caught all of the action.  I look forward to the re-broadcast coming up next week!  Thanks Red Bull and THANK YOU SAINT PAUL!!!  I'm just so seriously in love with you!

Mire la luna loca!


The full moon has been delighting us here in Saint Paul over the past week.
 Had I actually taken the time to get out my big gear and my tripod, I probably could have gotten some killer shots.  But what I snapped with my point and shoot will have to do.

 Various locations.  Saint Paul.

 Finally made it into Anthropologie last night.  Visually stimulating but my feeling is "Good luck with ALL that!".  Right merchandise for the area but wrong pricing.  Grand and Victoria.

Hells to the Yeah!

Track with the Cathedral of Saint Paul in the background.
 Saint Paul will be hosting the Red Bull Crashed Ice event.  I'm so excited I could pee.  Seriously.
Track with Capitol building in the background.
 Never heard of this event before but now that I've been introduced I'm DROOLING!!!  Can't wait to see it live.  All within 3 miles of my house.  BRING IT!!!!
Curve with a jump.
