Friday night, we went to Jake's grandpa's house for a very belated Hanukkah dinner. They aren't super traditional, but it was my first experience with it which was super cool. I learned a little about it, they lit the candles and said the prayer. Plus, his family is awesome, so it was a super fun night. Saturday, I was supposed to host my friends for a brunch, but they were sick. Since I had the food, I went ahead and made it. Let me say if you make this, cook the bacon separate. It doesn't look like this if you cook it all together like ti says. Click here for the recipe.
Saturday was a super lazy day...but also I went to Target to start buying my "Galentine" presents. I posted on my Instagram to have people nominate their friends, and I'd pick a few to deliver "Falentines" to. I couldn't believe the number of people that commented. First of all, it was so beautiful. SO many kind words and shoutouts to amazing friends. It was awesome. I picked 3 and will be delivering on Wednesday.
Saturday night, I was invited to the Spring Farm Sanctuary wine night. We had some great vegan wine-had no idea wine wasn't vegan-and learned a lot about the sanctuary. I highly recommend you check out what they do because it was so cool! PLUS, I got to meet this cutie...
and this cutie...haha! This was Penny, but recently they've discovered it might be Lenny...
Truth be told, I drank more wine when I got home, and Jake got to see the "Falen throws up and lays in the shower for 2 hours" version of me...he still likes me though, so that's a win.
Sunday I had brunch with my friends, Wynne and Nicole. A lot of people ask where I like to get brunch, and I can now definitely say this is one of those places. Bellecour in Wayzata!
I went straight over to Carson's court of honor. It was so cool seeing the ceremony because I don't know anyone that's an Eagle Scout. I've only known Dave for 6 years, but he really loves his boy, Carson. They've both worked so hard for this, and it was a big moment in both of their lives. I'm thankful I got to be a part of it. They said 4% of boy scouts make it to Eagle...so this was huge!
