st. lou for the weekend

last weekend, T and i went up to st. louis for a couple of days to relax and spend time just the two of us. between work and planning the wedding, we haven't had a lot of time to just enjoy each other's company. so, we thought a mini getaway would be just the thing to help us detach (temporarily) from life's stresses. it was just what we needed and we already can't wait to plan our next 'venture!

once we got into st. louis, we stopped by to get some bbq at pappy's smokehouse. if the constantly revolving line told us anything when we walked in, is that it was worth the wait! between the locally made root beer from fitz's, the delicious smoked chicken, and the baked beans...we were in bbq heaven. 

next up, was of course, to see the arch. T and i hadn't seen in since our respective school trips in middle school (for me) or high school (for him). T had never been up to the top, so we picked up a couple of tickets for the following morning and, then set out to explore more on foot. 

[of course i had to stop and get a popsicle]

we played tourist walking around citygarden while channeling our inner child and playing in the fountains. ...and for the record, we weren't the only ones, there were a group of kids playing in it first. :)

later that evening, we made our way to the stadium to see the cardinals play the nationals. like most baseball games, it was pretty uneventful but, at least the cardinals took home a win!

[can't enjoy the game without drinks and stadium food]

[i will always love dip 'n dots no matter how old i am]

after the game, we walked down broadway where the street was lined with fun bars and clubs. prior to our trip, i heard we had to check out the local blues at the beale. being the avid blues fans T and i are, we couldn't have been more at home. we loved the intimate atmosphere of the patio where the audience added just as much to the show as the bands. 

after such a dynamite first day in st. louis, we couldn't wait to see what the next day held in store for us!
