Two weekends ago Husband treated me to a night away. It was a celebration of sorts, marking the end of my busy season with work. I needed it. Oh, did I mention it was a night away ALONE?
Through Living Social (love their deals!), he got me a night at a very nice hotel in Minneapolis, the Hotel Ivy. I also got a massage at their shwanky Ivy Spa Club. The massage was overall pretty good, but the lady did something weird to my hip that made me nauseous for days and is still giving me slight pain. It felt strange when she did it too–I should’ve just spoken up and asked her to stop.
The hotel was probably one of the nicest I’ve ever stayed in. Clean, simple, understated room (sorry I’d already made myself at home before I took these pics).
Luxurious bathroom. Oh yes, I soaked in that tub.
My room didn’t face the city, so my view wasn’t the best, but that didn’t stop me from taking several photos out my window. 🙂
I ordered room service from their restaurant, Porter & Frye, for both dinner and breakfast. It was fine–nothing spectacular, but not bad. Pricey. Breakfast came with all these cute little bottles of stuff, and I got to thinking about how anything I don’t use will probably be tossed out. That made me sad, and since I was paying $20 for eggs, I took all the little bottles home with me (obviously not the salt and pepper).
Happy, refreshed mama. With unwashed hair–sorry ’bout that.
And I came home to this guy, who had recently been gifted some jewelry by his daughter.
It was a good time away. Thanks, Hon!
