One Grey’s at a Time

I’ve known my friend Jody since 6th grade. For almost as long as we’ve known each other she’s been trying to get me to watch Grey’s Anatomy. I’ve always told her I would but still haven’t. We go round and round with this. This weekend our husbands were out...

Oh the Food You’ll Eat at the MN State Fair

The Minnesota State Fair is a week away. One. Week. Away. While I hate that it signals the end of summer, I love the fair. If I could Ground Hog Day one day, it would have to be the first day of the fair. Everything is still super clean. You’re not walking over trampled corn […]

36 Hours in Chicago

My husband and I used to go to Chicago all of the time. We loved going to Cubs games, Six Flags, and shopping downtown. It’s only a six hour drive from our house so it’s kind of crazy that we don’t go more often. Especially with how much we love road trips. That’s why our recent […]

Storytelling Can Take Your Talk From Boring to Brilliant

Jerry Seinfeld said, “According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” If you fear public speaking, than storytelling […]
