3 Down 47 To Go! #iPPP

Tarnishing our reputation one state at a time. It's a lofty goal but so far so good! This past weekend Irishman and I drove to Minnesota for the wedding of one of my bestest friends. The weekend was jam packed and time seemed to speed up. Regardless we made the most of every single second, expanded the reach of our reputations and had a blast doing it!
Taking "the short bus" to a whole notha level! It was quite the adventure from the onset. Having read the map incorrectly, I added an extra two hours to our drive on the way up. Way to go, Duck! There's a reason GPS offers turn by turn directions. Of course you have to begin the route at your driveway and not two hours into the drive when you hit the state border. Semantics pffft
We were beyond thrilled when we arrived at the historic St. James Hotel in Red Wing, MN. If you have the chance to stay there...DO IT! If for no other reason than the GIGANTIC tub! It was like having a heated swimming pool all to yourself. This place was AHHHHHmazing!
You know its a good time when the Duck can be talked into Duck Lip pictures! The beautiful bride, Kristin, is on the left with Favorite Cousin Kate in the middle. Quite the trio we make, dontcha think? And I should probably make small mention that the bar in the basement of the hotel was super amazing!
Fall in Minnesota, while stupid cold was beyond beautiful!

 And of course, the reason we were there to begin with...

My handsome Irishman! I love everything about our team.
 The weekend absolutely would NOT have been the same without you!



In an effort to condense this (as I really took about 55 photos with my iphone) I just picked out a few representative ones. If you're friends with me on FB you'll find more there. Likely, I will be using a few more in the coming days.

Have some awesomeness you snapped with your iPhone? Link up with the fabulous duo Mash and Funk and get your link on! It also happens to be GFunk's birthday...a HUGE SHOUT OUT and Happy Born Naked Day to you!!

Looks like a great time. My hubs and I always get lost when we go on a trip sometimes it adds to the fun, other times not so much.

I'm so jealous! I want to soak in a huge tub then have drinks with girlfriends and rock a blue dress with my handsome hubby. Even the Minnesota part looks nice. Lucky!
