MOA ~ Trade/swap ~ State Fair

Kailee and I went to the Mall of America on Monday...our little end of the summer outing and we had FUN!!!
Going on rides at the theme park that is inside the mall.

Lunch at the American Girl Store which was very GOOD!!! and you even could "borrow" a doll if you didn't bring one. I would recommend this store for a nice lunch..not cheap...very good!

Do you know,Shirl from Shirl's Rose Cottage??!! She makes these awesome Ribbon Ladies and I love them. I asked if we could swap/trade and Shirl was very kind and agreed! I traded some linens and a crocheted pin keep and I received the "BLUE LADY" above and just love her. She will be in my Blue Guest Room! Thanks, Shirl!!!

Today hubby and I went to the Minnesota State Fair and here are just a few pictures from the day!

Just being SILLY!!!!!!!

This ride was AWESOME!!! You go upside down, around and trilling... NO...I didn't go on it! Just watched!
The food of the day: Egg, bacon, cheese breakfast sandwich, ( had to have a little something healthy), chocolate cream puff (YUM), corn dog, crab cakes, saltwater taffy ( brought home banana, chocolate, strawberry, black licorice for hubby, black walnut) milk, all you can drink for a DOLLAR...and a little sunburn on my neck. Nice time people watching and being with hubby!
Tomorrow I can pick up my check at HQ and play in my room. It's time to decorate for FALL!
Not sure if we are going to any sales...trying very hard to sell down our current inventory.
Son's birthday is Monday, Sept 11th, daughter's birthday and the 19th hubby's birthday...I may not be around much the next couple of weeks...
Enjoy your weekend!
deb :)

Looks like a fun time for you and your daughter. On another blog I read, she posted this week about doing the American Girl Place (and lunch) in Manhattan!! What a fun time for your daughter and hers.

Wow! Lots of fun for the end of summer! I went to the American Girl store here in Chicago. It was very cool and I peeked into the dining room...very sweet! Even the girls restroom was pretty!

Bargain Hunting Treasure Seeker said...

Looks like fun!! My friend and I went to Mall of America a few years ago-we left our husbands home with the kids and had a girls weekend!!

Celestial Charms said...

You all looked like you had a fabulous time at those venues. What fun! Yes, the ribbon lady is quite adorable.

Dogwood said...

Kailee is so precious. What a fun outting for the two of you. I love going to fairs. They are so exciting and fun to see and feel all the energy of the children.

Oh you know how jealous I am that you are at the Mn. fair, it is the best fair in the country. It sounds like you are going again, now have some of those cheese curds. When I was little my folks always let me go to the drink all the milk you can exhibit (Then It was 25cents). Our kids in Florida have already been back to school for 2 weeks, how lucky those midwest kids are, they go back the day after Labor day right? Have fun at ll of your upcoming events

Susan said...

Hi Deb,

Thank you for visiting my blog for Tasha Tudor Day today.

What a fabulous post. But before I comment on that, I have to say, I totally LOVE your blog title background. What a sweet little puppy face. It's just too cute.

You know, my son and I have talked about visiting the Mall of America for quite a while now and we haven't gotten around to driving all the way there yet. It's a bit of a haul for us. It looks like it's a lot of fun.

Oh, the ribbon lady you received in the blue dress, she's lovely. What a pretty picture. I've not ever seen that before. I really do like it quite a bit. Lucky you for getting that in your swap. It's just beautiful.

You had a heck of a lot of fun this past week visiting the Fair and the Mall of America, didn't you?

I hope you sell big at How Quaint!

Happy Saturday to you and enjoy all the birthday's coming up.


Shirl said...

Hello Deb, What a cute post, looks like a great day with Kailee, I love American Girl, I bought books and paper dolls when she first came out. I've never been to a store though. Your new fall header is adorable. Glad you liked the swap, I love what I received too.
My post is going up late today, I had some internet problems and is fixed now. Still uploading pics!
Blessings, Shirl
