A Minnesota Bucket List


We have been back in MN for three whole months and I've had this post in my drafts since July. I've been trying to add things here and there to this list, but I figured I should at least get it posted so it's easy to reference when we are bored and trying to find something to do. I intend to keep adding to this list and checking this off. Some of these we've done in the past, but we want to revisit with a new outlook. Also, we are SUPER OPEN to ideas to add to this list. I'll be happy if it just keeps growing.

  1. I am so saving this! My company's headquarters is in Eagan, and I'm always looking for stuff to do when I'm up there on business!
