Weekend trips and gal pal time are some of my favorite things, and my weekend excursion to St. Louis with Cate satisfied both of those wishes. There are ample things to do in St. Louis, and although I’ve grew up there, there are always new things to do and see. This trip was no exception.
After driving there on Friday afternoon (car dancing the entire way, of course), we chilled for the evening to rest up for the upcoming day. Saturday started with brunch at Rooster in Tower Grove. The one-hour wait felt unbelievably long, but the complimentary Kaldi’s coffee graced me with some patience.
But wow, the food was worth the wait. I ordered a breakfast potato crepe with a gluten-free vegan shell (of which I was very suspicious because how could that actually taste good?) and ate every last bite. It was rich with flavor, and the gluten-free vegan crepe actually ended up tasting really good.
After brunch, we headed to Shake Shack, which I’ve heard all the hype about but had never been to. Yes, it’s fast food, but its vibes are trendy and clean. My peanut butter shake was oh-so rich and thick–I couldn’t even finish it! I’m looking forward to going back to try more of their menu.One of St. Louis’s gems, at least in my book, is the Jewel Box. This quaint greenhouse gave us a break from the unusually frigid April weather. We’d tried going in earlier that day, but a wedding was taking place. The people outside told us to come back in an hour. So we grabbed our shakes and came back only to find out another wedding was soon to start. We snuck in for a couple minutes as setup was still going on.There’s some things only bloggers do–like park on a random street to go take pictures by pretty houses. Lindell Boulevard is known for its gorgeous and expensive real estate so we enjoyed a mini photo shoot on the side of the road.
Albeit short and abnormally chilly, this weekend had great quality time. Here’s to more weekend trips with quality people!
