1.4 Place - Minneapolis, Please

Bestest Friend and I are embarking on a new blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the fourth day of each month is "Place."
***************************


Over Memorial Day weekend, we did a ridiculous trip to Des Moines for a graduation party followed by two blissful days in Minneapolis before we drove back home. We went to a Twins game (the Twins lost to the Rangers), we rode the light rail the whole way from the Mall of America to Target Field, we shopped at See's Candy (everything in the store is gluten free!), I bought some awesome dresses at a boutique on Lyndale, we bought tea from the shop that introduced me to the wonders of green tea that doesn't taste like bitter, and we wandered around Heimie's Haberdashery and wondered yet again about how awesome their merchandise is.  We also walked around Lake Harriet and Lake of the Isles and got lost in Tangletown.  We ate at Pizza Luce, we almost got blown over by crazy winds bringing a summer storm, and we spent way too much time oohing and aahing over new construction and the giant hole in the ground that used to be the Metrodome.

And then we came home and I realized that although I miss Minneapolis desperately, I'm quite happy hear with my husband and my cat and my occasional trips to the big city.  But, seriously, I could totally use a See's Candy nearby...
