Crazy Minnesotans

For the last two months, I’ve heard everyone I know (including myself) complain again and again about the incredibly hot, super dry summer we’ve had.

Yesterday it rained.

And amazingly enough, every Facebook status was: “I wish this rain would stop! I want to go outside.”

Crazy Minnesotans. We just don’t know what we want.

I’ll tell you what I DO want. I want more opportunities to wear my rain boots. Cuz they’re cute. And I love ‘em.

Bring it, rain. I’m ready for ya.

  • I wish I could say I was different than the norm, but I’m not. While I realize most people try to fit in, I’ve spend a considerable amount of time trying to stand out. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not crazy. I don’t push the envelope too drastically. I mean I still buy random clothes from Target so… [Continue Reading]

    I’m Not Any Different
  • Every winter, I schedule a chemical peel at Dr. Prischmann’s office. I’ve mentioned before that I have melasma, and this helps to lighten some of the discoloration from that. Plus, I love having fresh and new skin once a year for so many reasons. Typically, I schedule my appointments for the winter months, because the… [Continue Reading]

  • It’s finally officially spring here in Minnesota, but we’ve all been  hanging out outside and celebrating as if it has been spring for weeks now. We go a little stir crazy in this chilly tundra of a state during the cold weather months, and we’re ready to embrace some warmth. My kids are even running around… [Continue Reading]
