Whew! Monday is almost over and its time to relax a little! My idea of relaxing is thinking about how wonderful my weekend was!
Friday night I was out late (okay 10 pm). Saturday at 7 I was up and going to meet friends for a 4 mile run followed by coffee and scones. If you’re in the Brainerd Lakes area and haven’t been to Stonehouse. You’re missing out.
From Nisswa I drove down to Minneapolis, or specifically St. Louis Park. I was gifted a ClassPass trial for the month of March and was too busy the first half of the month to take advantage. This wonderful company/program came to Minneapolis in January and is the best thing if you like checking out new studios and classes all the time!
For my first class I tried Barre Bliss Basics at Barre Bliss, and loved it! I’ve taken a few Barre classes before, and loved the inclusion of yoga within the traditional barre workout. I was tweeting about my plan to attend class and was happy that a high school friend decided to join me! After class we stopped at Honey and Rye for coffee, and I had a croissant. Flaky on the outside, chewy on the inside, it was perfect.
From there I grabbed at quick shower at my friend’s apartment before heading into Uptown to meet a different friend for an afternoon beer. We ended up chatting for two hours, so I started heading north and checked in with Emily for how her evening was going….and ended up staying with her! We had a wonderful evening catching up, and then had a morning stroll to The Local Blend, where I had…coffee and an ALMOND croissant, which are made by the local monks (you can’t get more catholic than that). It was delicious, but super sweet, I was thankful for the walk back to her place to help me digest.
As if I hadn’t had enough carbs…we went to Which Wich for lunch, which was a first for me. I loved it, and will definitely be choosing it over Subway in the future. And when I say we…I was able to get together with the bloggers of…. Diary of a Semi-Health Nut, Life of a Diet Queen, More Than Just Dessert, and Racing Bananas. It was so great to see them!
What’s your go-to treat at a coffee shop? Ever been to Which Wich?
