Why yes, that is a giant photograph of the state of Minnesota on my blog. Why, you ask? Because this, my friends, is the city in which my husband will be living for ten weeks this summer.
And no, Minnesota is not actually code for New York City. This is a cruel, cruel world.
But, apparently there are some really great things about Minneapolis that should totally make up for the loss of a dream summer living in NYC for 3/7 days per week.
1) Shopping at the Mall of America and at Target (headquarters in Minneapolis).
2) Museums. Like, the Mill City Museum (all about flour), or the American Swedish Institute.
3) Outdoor Activities. Fishing, Hiking, and Hockey!
Ummm, I literally cannot think of a single semi-positive thing to say about Minneapolis but please do leave encouragement if you love it because we are going to need it! Maybe cheese or something? (Wait, is that Wisconsin?) The only good things I know that came out of Minnesota are my friend Todd and Harry Connick Jr.’s movie with Renee Zellweger. And that was so lame I can’t remember the name of it, and who knew you could make Harry so much less attractive just by having him grow a scraggly beard?
