Weekend in the Cities

Jake and I ended up going to Minneapolis weekend of a bit of short notice (which is two weeks, in my book). It was really fun to get out of Grand Forks/Fargo and do something a little different.

We left fairly early on Saturday with me driving and Jake sleeping. It was a long and boring drive, but we switched jobs after reaching Isanti, where we stopped to meet up with an old family friend of my family.

After switching, the drive seemed to go much faster. We decided to hit up the Mall of America since we had some time to kill. I bought these sweet measuring cups from Urban Outfitters. Jake and I also looked at Fossil messenger bags for him since he feels as if bring his backpack to work is a little juvenille. We didn't get him one because they were ridic expensive (cheapest was $158). I grabbed some Arby's and then it was off to Target field.
It was raining so I was worried that the game would get rained out. Luckily they were giving away free cowboy hats to the first 10,000 people so that kept the rain off of my head and Jake had a baseball cap to protect his little hairs. We had to wait at the gates because it was 4pm, but we bonded with Sioux fans (Jake was wearing his jacket) and lesbians, so it was fine.
Once we got inside, it rained on and off until game start, but we filled up on expensive soda and snacks.
The game eventually commenced and we won 1-0 against the Padres...did I mention we were rooting for the Twins (aka Joe Mauer). I took way more photos than necessary and had a great time. Jake and I are going to try and go to at least one other game this year.
The rest of the weekend was chill. Since the game finished at 9pm, we didn't get to Jake's Aunt and Uncle's until almost 10pm. Jake's relatives wanted to stay up and talk and watch movies and all I wanted to do was crawl onto the blowup and fall asleep.

We left fairly early the next morning stopping only for the outlet mall where Jake found, and bought, a Fossil messenger bag for less than $40. I was excited to discover a book outlet where I got some sweet notebooks. We also hit up the Under Armor outlet where I bought a sweet pair of workout pants for cheap--maybe having nice workout clothes will motivate me to actually use them :)
