Sailboats and Stripes

We have an exciting week and a half planned with hours upon hours of driving and a tour through several states. Although Matt and I strongly considered Nashville as a destination with a stop in southern Illinois to visit some highly recommended wineries, a change in plans means we are headed to Minneapolis and St. Paul. I think we are going to have lots of fun and have heard really great things about the Twin Cities so I am looking forward to it. But first we head to the Quad Cities (I know these numbered amounts of cities are getting confusing. It's a good thing there are no Triple Cities nearby!) to drop off Claire with Matt's parents. The last time I was in the Twin Cities I was in eighth grade and didn't venture outside of the Mall of American so my goal is to do a better job seeing the area this time!  We have a growing list of restaurants to try and things to do, but are always open to more!

  7. I hope you have an amazing time!! Can't wait to hear what you end up doing, and then maybe copy it for a future trip. And this outfit reminds me I should have been wearing this top more all summer! It must have gotten pushed to the back of the closet. Hmm, and it's not very fall-ish, so I'll have to remember it for next spring!

  26. Yayyy Minneapolis/St. Paul! My old stomping grounds!! Things I recommend:
    - The Sculpture Gardens and Walker Art Museum - so cool...this is a must-do, in my opinion!
    - Minnehaha Falls is a blast, and it's fun to explore the locks and dams along the Mississippi River.
    - Republic is a fantastic restaurant/bar in Minneapolis that I HIGHLY recommend.
    - If you guys like biking, there are bikes you can rent all around Minneapolis (Nice Ride) - I recommend going to Lake of the Isles, Lake Harriet, or Lake Calhoun for a nice bike ride!
    - The Minneapolis Institute of Art is free, so that might be good if the weather is icky (although, it looks like this weekend is supposed to be delightful).
    - Izze's Ice Cream in St. Paul is deeeelicious :)
    - The Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis is a super cool place where you can eat food, enjoy entertainment, and see goods from all different places around the world. It's a great place to spend a day!!
    - A Twins game at Target Field is always a good time as well!
