My Canadian bestie Jessica (also known as Pin Up Persuasion http://pinuppersuasion.com/) came to Minneapolis for a visit!  I had a full schedule planned for her.

About an hour after she hopped off her plane my tiki party was underway! I wanted her to meet some of my MN Vintage friends.

We spent much of our week antiquing (Jessica found a few things on the first day but otherwise we didn’t find a thing – boo!)  We went out to Jax for a nice dinner – Jessica loves some steak.


The weather wasn’t super hot for August either (lame!) – we even had to wear pants one day (gasp!)


We took her to the Mill City Museum to learn some Minneapolis history and listen to my girl Davina sing with her band in the ruins (so cool!).  For dinner we took her to a Minnesota staple that is sadly closing at the end of the year – Nye’s!  Jessica tried Polish food and laughed along while listening to the interesting piano bar renditions.

We also took her out on the lake even though it was freezing.  She was a trooper.

Friday we took her to the Great Minnesota Get Together… also known as the MN State Fair!  114,000 people attended that day.  Jessica dove right in and tried all the classics – pronto pup, Sweet Martha’s cookies, french fries, cheese curds and Tom Thumb Mini Donuts!  Go Jessica!

We loved having Jessica with us for the week.  We’re looking forward to her coming back next year.. in July… when it’s warm.  😉
