What were you up to: Shopping & dining
How far did you drive: 44 miles
For a gal who loves to shop, it’s a wonder why I have never made the jaunt to the shops of 50th & France in Edina, MN. I mean this is a really big question here? Really, why? Um… I just do not know. Mystery aside, let us move on, and get to the good stuff.
Since it was Sunday and I got off to a later start I didn’t hit the entire area but I stumbled upon some fabulous finds!
My first stop was prAna, where George, the gentlest yellow lab greeted me at the door. What a nice surprise! Any way, I love the feeling of comfort while wearing prAna clothing. My purchase, their Bliss skort in black, which will be perfect for weekend hiking and bike rides.
At Paper Source, I ventured upon a gift givers mecca. There were so many fun gift ideas, creative cards and pretty wrapping to dress them up. My purchases included – a fun notebook, QWERTY type magnets, a “positive directions” necklace, and my fave “One Good Deed a Day” journal book (sad that we have to be reminded to do this, isn’t it?).
I took a break for a bite to eat and something to sip on down the street at Salut. It was a bit swelter-y with no breeze outside but I chose to sit on the patio of this quaint French- American bistro any way. On my plate- Ahi Tuna Nicoise salad, so yummy and it was beautifully plated. In my glass- Simi chardonnay, refreshing and crisp.
After my leisurely lunch I made my way to Anthropologie. This store has long been a fave of mine, the clothes, gifts and housewares are quite unique and I was full of excitement to see one located at 50th & France! My finds- the perfect bowls to complete my dinnerware set and yet another inspirational writing book “642 Things to Write About”.
Of course I strolled through other stores, such as Lush, and Cooks of Crocus Hill (no finds this time but I’m definitely going to try one of their cooking classes).
All in all, a great first ‘Weekend Wandering’!
Enjoy. Smile. Cry. Laugh. Share. Most of all~ BT2U.
