A few of us Couples couples are planning a Christmas shopping & party get-together near the Mall of America on December 5. I have seen plenty of posts from people in the neighborhood. It would be fun to meet up with some of you and talk about our warm Couples experiences during our cold December days. Anyone interested in joining us?
I promise not to mention the new Wisconsin F-word (F-avre)!
Nice thought, but on December 5th we will be flying out of your Minneapolis airport at 5:30 for CSS. See, I agree, Cold December's that is why we leave Wisconsin then. (Also, because of a second job I can't go in Janurary or February)
As far as the Wisconsin "F" word goes. You can keep him. He'll probably retire again next year. I was hearing stories even before he left that he really isn't the "kind, generous person" he pretends to be. He also has been fading by the end of the year. Of course he at least has pretty good protection now.
jamaican_junkie: Can you e-mail us information on where you'll be staying? Our anniversary is Dec. 4th and we were thinking about getting away for that weekend. We're about 4-5 hours away from Mall of America down by Madison Wisconsin. We don't go to Jamaica until January - one week at CTI and one week at CSS! Our e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Cactus & Lindad, have a great time at Couples. We aren't going until March to CTI. Some of us will also be down there on Friday Dec. 4. Let us know if you'd like to meet for a send-off drink or two that night.
Jeff & Gail, it will be great to see you guys again.
To others interested in meeting on Dec. 5, we have not set anything in stone yet. We are pretty laid back and spontaneous. We have decided on a hotel, which is reasonably priced ($70 advanced payment or $80 regular rates) and has a bar, exercise room, and pool/hot tub/sauna. They also have a shuttle going to/from the Mall of America. Like I mentioned, we are going to book 2 nights (Dec. 4 & 5).
The shopping part is wide open, of course. We'd meet in the lobby and/or at a certain time at the mall for those who'd like to group shop.
As far as dinner/drinks/partying goes, that is also open. We can meet up at the mall for dinner/drinks, go back to the hotel bar for dinner/drinks, and/or BYOB and order some pizzas or something to eat in our rooms or in the pool area.
wow- all you minnesotans are leaving the tundra in Jan. why?!? Ha-- buurrr! We're from Duluth and WISH we could leave this winter to beautiful CSA just the thought warms my spirit on a day like today-- it's cold..rainy/snowy..and looks like it's 6pm outside right now. iiiccckk
Ok...I'm bummed out. Vikings lost yesterday. Oh well, I'm sure they will take it out on their next opponent. Hmmm...who could that be?
We have booked our rooms at the Crowne Plaza for Dec. 4-5. So have Jeff & Gail (jgcranch). Sue & Adolph (Sueboo)...congrats on your upcoming anniversary! krazykeith...it would be great to meet you and your Couples friends.
Thanks for the info. We are going to do our darndest to get there. Son has a hockey game that day 500pm in Somerset looking at the schedule. We would not be there until the evening after the drive. We will keep you posted and watch the thread. Thx
Jamaican Junkie, with any kind of luck that T-shirt would be Rodgers doing it to Favre. I sort of like the Viking game on Sunday. Especially since it was Favre that caused both turnovers. See guys, he isn't a god. He had been the reason we lost several of our games over the years, and he could do it for you also. The other thing is think about last year with New York. He was great in the beginning of the season, and then went down hill. His down hill time is coming soon-like Nov 1. Good luck though.
I am very interested in attending. . .I'm just not sure I can get hubby to agree. Dec. 4 is our anniversary (and we were married at CSA 5 years ago), and we are heading off to CTI on Dec. 13th. So. . .it's a busy December for us and not sure we can fit this in also. Thanks for arranging this and keeping us posted. We live in Rochester and could easily just drive up for one evening, so maybe I'll be able to work it in. It would be fun to get together with like-minded friends!!!
tnt...congrats on your upcoming anniversary! Maybe you could make it up there for 1 night, either 4th or 5th? You could have a nice romantic dinner at the Mall at one of their fine restaurants...Tucci Benucch, Napa Valley Grille, Hooters. It would be great to meet you.
As for you cheeseheads...aren't you carrying it a bit too Farve? Why is he so despised? Didn't the Packers trade him away? Yes I understand he's wishy-washy. We went through it here during training camp! But besides that, he still wants to play and is just going about his business. I think you should be classy about it and just honor him 4 the time he played 4 you. He was Favre and away the best Packer of all time. Players like him are few and Favre between!
as far as the favre-ola-crapola goes his downhill slide is starting to show. And we would love to be up there again to the mall,but at that time we planin on getting ready for her b-day in cancun on dec 9th and we need to get ready cuz we leaving on the 8th. Its a 6 hr drive from here outside milwaukee so we would love to be there but cant but its a cool-beans idea ya have and as far as favre goes dig the photo below...........and yes the packers made favre who he is .....so enjoy the truthful moment below and get ready for more to come and oh yes dont forget that interceptions
