I feel like October went by in a flash! I sold my house and went to Minneapolis, MN to visit my brother and sister-in-law. We went to this really awesome place called the Minnesota Arboretum. It’s this outdoor garden where they grow plants and flowers. Very cool and I took so many pictures. I was literally in awe of how beautiful this place was and the Fall scenery in the area. It was like heaven for people who love to take pictures. The very first picture in this post is one of my favorites and my second one is the one below with the bench.
Fall is kind of depressing here in North Dakota. We had an early freeze and snowfall. If you travel down I-94 from Fargo to Alexandria, MN there is a total change in Fall scenery after you get to Alexandria. My city and area are just all BROWN and it was so nice to see all these gorgeous Fall colors a couple of weekends ago while it lasted. I mean, we don’t even get those bright red and orange colored leaves where I live. How sad is that?
Can you believe all the different kinds of pumpkins, squash, and gourds there are out there?
When my Mom and I go to Minneapolis we love to go shopping. One of our favorite places to shop is at Bachman’s Nursery and the Galleria Mall on France Ave. We love to hit Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, and Williams Sonoma. There’s this really awesome Asian restaurant in the Galleria called Big Bowl and there was this dish we had there with chicken, shrimp, and snow peas and I kind of want try recreating that or finding a recipe that is similar. I ended up picking up a lot of Christmas decorations for my new house and I know I’m really excited to decorate for Christmas.
I hope everyone had a nice October and pretty Fall. Next month is going to go by fast too because I’ll be packing all month long and moving at the end of the month!
