If you didn't already know - me and my Husband tied the knot on October 5th 2019!

Our #LoveIsDollYouNeed Wedding!

Since my Husband started a new job in September and I started a school course... October 1st... (Haven't bought the textbooks yet even....), we decided to have a mini-moon in the city for a few days and do a full honeymoon in January/February when we can get the time off as well as save up for it!

For our mini moon though, we stayed in the city of Winnipeg and here is what we did!


Sunday October 6th 2019 (Day after getting married)

- returned most of supplies

- checked into Mariaggi's Theme Suite Hotel & Spa (Caribbean room)

- picked up our kitten Kit and puppy Karma and dropped them off with family

- candle lit dinner

- Thermea Nordic Spa from 10AM - 4PM

- Rumor's Comedy Club to see Louis CK

Tuesday October 8th 2019

- Sleep in!!!

- Cirque Du Soleil Amaluna

Mini-moon in Winnipeg 6


Wednesday October 9th 2019

- pick up pets

- get some legal stuff done

- go home!


10/10 would recommend a mini-moon when you can't have a honey moon right away!

    Yes - right?? Thermea was actually amazing! Only thing I would change is that the food options are not for a picky eater like myself...

    And also yes, still weeeeeeeird Smiley tongue

    I friggin' LOOOOOVE Thermea! My bridesmaids actually took me there for my bachelorette Smiley smile

    We've got a pretty good thing in Winnipeg that's for sure! My HUSBAND (lol...still weird, right?) and I went to the Nordic spa in Kananaskis on our honeymoon, and to be honest, it was nice, but Thermea is so much nicer!!! Glad you had a good time in the city Smiley laugh

    They have cuter robes at Kananaskis though lol

    Trust me - you won't regret it! I also highly recommend getting a hotel room! Not only was it nice to come "home" to a clean place to sleep but nothing there reminded us of all the stuff we have to do after the mini-moon like cleaning our outfits, selling the decor, etc.

    Mini-moons sound fantastic, my FH and I are planning on taking the week off work after our wedding to relax and enjoy being married for a few days

    That’s good! I think Thunder Bay sent some assistance too but glad Minnesota is helping too!

    Ya, the city is doing pretty good - only some lights still out but that might be from construction. My parent's cabin up north in Steep Rock... there are hundreds of Hydro Poles broken/down and the estimate is that they will be without power for 2-3 weeks.... I also heard there are workers from Minnesota up here helping so that's good!

    Luckily the snow storm was a few days later! We mini-mooned from the 6th-9th and the power started going out on the 10th and by the Friday the 11th mostly everywhere was with no power and for us that meant not having to stay at work! (Don't get me wrong though - we were still expected to show up to work, but once the power went out at our offices for over 30-45 minutes we were sent home!)

    Looks like an awesome time away! The spa looks absolutely heavenly - I may have to steal that idea Smiley love We'll probably do a mini-moon right afterwards too then go for the real deal in the winter or spring.

    Oh man definitely!! My FH and I are all about kid free vacations haha.


    We really want to do a cruise too!! Probably in Europe so we can go to a lot of places without moving our bags. You’ll have to update us with what you decide to do because I might steal your idea for our next vacation 😂

    Next up is we're are hoping that come January/February we can maybe go on a cruise or something. Going to look into it once things have settled down though.

    Main thing is that it has to be kid free though - not a deal breaker but want to avoid it if possible because why not?!

    Right? I can't even count how many times we would just look at each other and be like "huuuuusband" and "wifey".

    Wow! That sounds like a great time!

    Seriously beautiful pictures. I 100% recommend a mini moon to everyone if you aren't going on a honeymoon right away!

    We stayed over night at a hotel after our wedding, did all our running around returning things the next day, and then went up north for the weekend. It is so nice to take that time before the actual honeymoon, and really let everything settle in that you are Husband and Wife!
