A Saturday With Mal
Mar 12, 2023/
As a busy mom, wife and teacher I take my weekends very seriously! I want to make the most of the time I have with some family fun, some quality time with my hubby but also some me time! And I love that our city offers so many great options for me (and my fam) to do all of this!!
Check out my guide to a Saturday of family, food and fun with me the teacher mom!

Local Barre offers a variety of classes making it easy to something you love. There is truly a class for every Barre Star! For locals who love high intensity cardio or those want to barre but not so hard and everything in between, you’re sure to “find your beat”, have some fun and get a great workout. So grab yourself some grippy socks, a water bottle and meet me at the barre!
If waking up early on a Saturday to get down there isn’t an option for you, rest assured that you can always order online and pickup when you’re ready. I love this option! Especially if I have a busy day ahead. I order my donuts (even throw in a coffee too) and know that when I get there later in the day, I can skip the line, let one of the amazing staff members know I have an online order and they have it all ready to go for me. The only waiting required is for any coffees order as those are made fresh. It’s the sweetest set up!
Bar Willow is our go to for almost any occasion. It’s our favorite weekend brunch spot (definitely try the eggs benny!). After a walk or an afternoon of sledding we like to head in and enjoy some hot chocolate. And if you’re feeling adventurous, I highly recommend trying their specialty ‘Lights Out’ dinner. A special four course menu served to you completely in the dark. This is such an amazing experience. Your other senses will definitely be heightened, and your belt will probably need to be loosened! Regardless of the occasion, season or lighting situation, Bar Willow always serves up a wonderful meal and experience.
