des moines // date night.

it is technically my “friday”. WOO HOO!! bright + early tomorrow morning, [J] & I are headed for the iowa/illinois border. his sister is tying the knot this weekend. and we will be there to partake in the festivities. plus a few other fun things, like going to a chicago cubs game on sunday afternoon.

on friday nights, [J] & I like to have a date night. or a celebration of the work week being over. whichever you’d like to call it.

last week, I convinced him to make the long 15 minute drive downtown des moines. and drug him to this restaurant + bar I had heard a lot about, mullets. [no that is not a spelling error. mullets; party in the back, business in the front. you got it]. it has an amazing rooftop deck that overlooks the river, the city of des moines, and the iowa cubs baseball stadium. we indulged in food + uber classy beverages. [I’ve never had thee “banquet beer”/coors before]. the food was scrumptious. I love spicy. so I went for a burger stuffed with cheese + jalapenos, topped with smoked jalapeno bacon + barbecue sauce. it’s making my mouth water now. I couldn’t have been happier with our date night destination.

we then went to the diviest dive bar, with the friendliest people and watched the chicago black hawks defeat the LA kings in game 6.

funday monday //

or lack thereof.

yesterday I forced asked [J] to accompany me while I filmed for a blog project. [coming soon!]. below zero temperatures aside, we made our way to some of our favorite spots in des moines. and what began as a couple hours of work turned into a day date. we had so much fun.

I am majorly playing catch up today. with so many things needing my attention; boxing up our apartment in preparation for the move. wedding planning. many fun blog projects. volunteering within the community. and hopefully a professional change coming soon. fingers crossed.

happy monday.

see you all tomorrow.
