Trip to St. Louis // Weekend Recap LinkUp

Good Morning and Welcome to a new week!

I have a serious case of sleep deficit, not really sure how to make it through this day. But: The reason WHY is worth it!

My husband is the bestestest when it comes to doing fun stuff. So this weekend he decided he will show me the Arch in St. Louis!! I've never been there, and it definitely is on my bucket list, so I was super excited!

We took off at 3am on Saturday. Very super duper early. The first stop was at the gas station, for some gas of course, and for tons of energy drinks.

The drive was very boring and first I thought Missouri looks like fresh out of a Vampire movie. Since it was foggy and cold, everything looked just plain grey and sad.



What I've quickly realized is all the German heritage though! There are so many businesses with German names! Around noon we've entered St. Louis. First thing I saw was the Anheuser-Busch brewery. Impressing! I want to go there next time! Then we drove past the "St. Louis Union Station" - BEAUTIFUL!! I saw the Cardinals stadium and the "Ballpark Village", and then there it was:

The Arch! What an impressive sight! I went all crazy and started taking pictures like a group of tourists from Asia in a Bavarian village. I guess M was a little annoyed at that point, since he lived in St. Louis for about 1 year. Nonetheless he let me be the crazy chick.

I've found a great deal for a hotel room online! We stayed at the "Crowne Plaza" on 4th street - the room was $96! Which included parking. Amazing! It's a very nice hotel. Our room was on the 23rd floor, and check out the view:


Everything we wanted to see was walking distance from the hotel, so we were finally able to have some drinks together at the Ballpark Village Saturday night. And trust me: we enjoyed it!

I will share more pictures tomorrow. But now make sure to link up at the "Weekend Recap"!

  2. I've only been to St. Louis once and it was to help get a friend's older brother settled in college. I've still never seen the arch in person, although I grew up in the KC metro area! Need to do that someday. :)

  3. I'm a Missouri girl. Are you are all FLW? I'm not from there, but I lived at FLW for 8 years. Some people find that's torture. Missouri is full of Germans though! The area I'm from is all German.

  4. St. Louis is one of my favorite cities. I don't live far from it that's why. I love your pictures.
