Retail therapy x10000

I can't believe tomorrow is already Friday. Spring Break is rapidly coming to an end. Minneapolis was soooo much fun. We got to the hotel, and I use that term loosely, around noon and headed straight to the mall after we checked in. We did some major shopping, hitting all 3 floors with several pit stops to make deposits to the trunk of the car. I wish I had taken a picture of trunk after we finished packing everything in, it was stuffed to the brim. Monday night we ate at the Cheesecake Factory, which was delicious as always, and may I recommend the spinach artichoke cheese dip? YUM!!! We were planning on going out dancing somewhere but after 8.5 hours of walking and shopping we were just too pooped. So we just went to bed. Tuesday we slept in, then got ready and went to Target, b/c after all, we were in the store's headquarters' city! Then we hit up Ikea, which was marvelous. I got some new flour/sugar containers which I love and other random things. Then we went back to the mall again to pick up things we wished we had gotten the day before. Then it was time to head back. So sad. We rocked out to our favorite songs, including an entire NKOTB album. If you don't know what NKOTB is, then I'm not sure we can still be friends. It was awesome. Anyway, here are a few visuals for your enjoyment.

I pulled over on the side of the freeway to get this great shot. I think everyone was freaked out that I stopped. I don't know what the big deal was. Doesn't everyone do that??

Deliciousness at the CCF. The food was good too. ;)

Easter props at Target. I bought mine. Lamb ears!!! How cute!

In front of Mecca.

Quite possibly the highlight of the trip. Or my life. Redeeming my Scoopie Points for a Team Scoopie T-Shirt and Scoopie Plush. I looooove Culvers. If you have never eaten at Culver's, you are truly missing out. I have been collecting Scoopie Points since we've moved here. I only eat Kids Meals there. I am in love with Scoopie, he is adorable. And such a charmer.

Me and my girl Linds.

It was way too much fun, and way too short. We shoulda stayed an extra day. Next time.

OMGosh! Are you talking about New Kids?

I used to LOVE them. Yes, I had their, well, TAPE, then! Danny was my favorite. I have no clue why. Everyone else loved anyone but him. ;-)

I am very jealous! I want to go shopping! (Heck, at this point, I would give anything to do ANYTHING outside my house!)
