MOA fun but not a fun trip home
HGTV was coming to Mall of America.
This is Ashley's and my favourite channel. Sadly Ashley didn't get to see her guys...Property Brothers. There aren't suppose to be there until later in the month.
Here are my purchases from yesterday.
I was excited to pick up this Polaroid stamp, and the film strip washi tape :)
Then we stopped at the Magic Pan Crepe Stand.
Heather, Kristy and I always go here for lunch. We end up bringing ours upstairs to the food court so we can eat with Wayne and Ashley.
I wish we had one here. I have told the girls to start a franchise ;)
The girls still had lots of shopping left in them so I went back to make a few more purchases ;)
Then it was time for dinner, drop off our purchases at the hotel....then back to Mall of America :)
We left for home today early in the morning as we heard about a storm warning and was hoping to stay ahead of it.
Wayne asked me if I wanted to stay another night in Minneapolis.
I trust Wayne's judgement when he looked outside and told me he didn't think it was all that bad out there.
Wayne is an excellent driver and is used to driving in this type of weather. We also have a 4x4x. Plus we thought we would drive the 2 hours to Duluth and then if we had to, we would stay the night in Duluth.
It took us about 3 hours to make the two hour drive, as we were stuck behind 3 snow plows. I slept through it though, teehee.
There were 4 cars in the ditch, this transport and a large SUV on its side.
Honestly though the roads weren't that bad...you just had to take it a bit slower.
Lola (our GPS) took us a different way this time....we passed Little Canada...would that be like Little Italy, teehee.
The weather turned for the better once we got to Duluth :)
We didn't stop though. Usually we stop at Miller Hill Mall for the girls to shop and there are a couple of stores that Wayne likes to check out. But we just drove on through.
We were ahead of the storm and wanted to keep it that way.
But isn't all that snow oh so pretty :)
I see the the snow followed us home as we have been getting a bit of snow tonight.
But that's okay, we are all safe and sound at home now :)
I hope you all had a creative Sunday :)
