The snow is MELTING in Minnesota! I would say this week the snow has gone down incredibly. I would say there is definitely more grass/dirt that is visible than snow, which has been fun to see.
So we thought that this area was REALLY flat – well, after the snow has melted, we’ve realized really how “unflat” or hilly it is. Granted I am not talking about rolling hills. But I would say where I grew up, there are less hills than there are here. Yes, it’s still flat, but not NEAR as flat as we had first assumed – the snow was deceiving!
Yesterday I had the privilege of going to St. Cloud with two WONDERFUL friends! Oh did we have fun! St. Cloud is the place if we’d want to go to a bigger mall, Kohl’s, Michaels, you name it. It really had EVERYTHING! And it was only an hour (from Willmar) so 1 hour and 20 minutes from Prinsburg! Yes, that may seem like a bit of a trek, but when you look at a map and realize where we live, an hour and 20 minutes is not far at all! AND…they even have an ALDI! You bet they do! We did not go there b/c I did not need anything (I had already gotten my groceries for the week), but boy was I excited about that! We were pretty much gone all day, just because there are so many places to go to! We mainly hit thrift stores, which were all of our favs – why buy new when you can buy used? I had bought a few shirts from Goodwill and the joy of that, is I KNOW they won’t shrink! I get so frustrated when I buy a new shirt and then the first time you wash it, you know it just won’t fit the same again. Well, buying second hand, you know it will continue to fit! And, it is just so fun to see what comes through those places, for so cheap! If you ever want to go thrifting, St. Cloud is a GREAT place to go!
