indulge in the awesome

A couple weeks back, my sister and I had our Best Day Ever at Mall of America here in Minneapolis! True to its name, this is America's biggest and best mall since opening in 1992. I love having such a prime shopping experience just a quick drive away from my apartment downtown. We started our day with all-morning rides at Nickelodeon Universe...


Caitlin and I spent the afternoon checking out both the CSI and Barbie Dreamhouse exhibits (I can't even handle Barbie's closet), solving crimes and baking virtual cupcakes in Barbie's kitchen. We fell in love with a new-to-us restaurant, Masu, and then shopped till we dropped (Madewell! Free People! Nordstrom! Kiehls!) and ended with a snack at Pinkberry. MOA has so many different things to offer that it's easy to forget you're in a mall. If you're ever in town (or live here and never go) trust me...arrive early, leave late, and indulge in the awesome that is Mall of America.
