It has been a crazy week and I have gotten behind on my blog. So going back to Wednesday and our family day in Minneapolis....
What an amazing journey for Ally! We arrived at the Target Center for her Super Snack Challenge and Tailgate Party! We were escorted in like we were celebrities. Ally received her own chef’s coat with her name embroidered and had her very own food truck for the sampling of her food!
As guests started to arrive, the 10 finalists stayed near their trucks to greet guests, talk about their recipes and sample them. It was so fun. Many guests complimented Ally and people would say “we heard yours are the best, so we had to come try it.” The Minneapolis Mayor was very impressed and talked to Ally for quite awhile. He said when she is ready to open a restaurant in Minneapolis, to come see him!
She didn’t win, but this experience will be hers forever. We had the opportunity to bring the food truck home, so Ally is open to appearances (ha!) but I did ask her to participate in my Baby & Kids Expo on February 17th and she will hand out her recipe to families from her food truck.
After the party we ventured on to Super Bowl Live and the Super Bowl Experience. Both were impressive but we were tired from the long day. We could’ve spent more time at both.
I loved the snow globe photo op and the Prince display at Super Bowl Live. At the Experience, the locker room, Super Bowl ring display and team photo op was impressive. I was looking forward to getting Diggs autograph, but he cancelled his experience.
Friday night I was back in Cities with my dear friend Michelle and we went to the Pink concert!
I will admit, she is probably not someone I would typically go see in concert, but Michelle pleaded and I could not say no to my friend. The concert was absolutely amazing! The venue was impressive! Never waited in line for a beverage and we danced all night! I guess Pink is back in MN in March on her tour. I would recommend going to see her! Check out my Facebook post about the concert and watch the video!
Michelle and I had a lot of fun and laughs. I will have to share those stories in person!
Today, I am working at the Armory for a tailgate party. My shift should be done by 4:30, in time for me to go into the stadium and enjoy the game! Stay tuned...
