St. Paul Bliss

A huge thanks to my mom for watching William overnight on Friday/Saturday while Brian and I enjoyed our first night away from the baby. We stayed at the historic St. Paul Hotel. It was great. We had pre-dinner cocktails at Kincaid's and then dined at Pazzaluna. I had the most amazing lobster ravioli and also stole a few bites of Brian's veal which was just as divine.

At the end of the dinner we were treated to a complimentary dish of delicious tiramisu. There was only one problem. After the dessert was gone we still had half a bottle of wine left. So, in a moment of rebellion, I watched as the waitress turned her back, gave Brian a quick nod and we hightailed it to the sidewalk and scurried across the street with the bottle under Brian's arm. We finished the wine in our hotel room watching the glistening lights of St. Paul's Rice Park below.

The next morning we treated ourselves to Caribou coffees and pastries from a Twin Cities favorite, Wuollet's Bakery.

Brian and I are so lucky to each have mothers who are not only willing to babysit but are actually begging to babysit. This allowed us to celebrate our anniversary twice this week!
