Catch Up Post – Part Three…Minnesota

Anthony and I took a long weekend to drive from Illinois to Minnesota to visit with his cousin, Michelle, and her fiancé, Tim. Short story? They are awesome! And we had such a good time!

Look! There they are!! We tease Tim about his photographed smile. It’s all in good fun. This was at dinner on Friday night at Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge (read: Diners, Drive Ins & Dives location)

And here we are! Exhausted from our drive, but having a blast!

Gia lives here in Minnesota, so poor allergic Michael can’t visit.

We stopped at The Nook (another DDD hot spot) for burger, bowling and beers on Saturday. Reminder to self: go back for the cheese curds!

We stopped at the Mall of America mainly because you have to if you are in the area. This was our favorite part! Fresh Mike & Ike’s. Anthony was in heaven!!!

My heaven was this apple waffle goodness!

Meet Michelle’s scary monster face. I love this picture and know that she may not. So it gets blogged instead of facebooked. I wonder if anyone I ‘know’ will ever see it.

We had a fantastic time! Best weekend maybe even ever as a married adult. Shopping at the outlet mall, walking through beautiful neighborhoods, talking and playing games…good stuff. I’m so glad that we went and hope to have a weekend like that again sometime soon.

I am a 38 year old wife, mom, sister, auntie, daughter, friend and advocate living in the burbs. In 2012 when I started writing, I was on a journey to take a more healthy approach toward my lifestyle. In 2013, I re-evaluated a lot of things and I say "no" to people, things and commitments more often without guilt. In 2014, I got serious about doing what I want to do and really living life. By 2016, I was so much happier living a life I️ loved. And now in 2017, I’m recommitting to a healthier me while still enjoying all life has to offer. I am excited about my life and where I'm headed with the most amazing people all around me!
