Weekend in the Cities

A cousin of mine from the the Biz came through Friday afternoon and we drove together to the cities. When we left Fargo around 5pm, the weather was nice. About an hour and a half into the drive we came upon the worst weather EVER. We drove through rain, wind gusts from 65-85mph, and listened to multiple tornado warnings around us for about an hour. Total white nuckles on the steering wheel. I was afraid we were never going to get through the storm. It was awful. Supposedly a handful of twisters touched down that evening.

After we arrived safely in Chanhassen, we headed out for a bite to eat at B'dubs.Saturday morning Steph and I went for a nice long walk with Deja (puppy), grabbed coffee, got ready for the day and met up with a friend for lunch. It was great to catch up with her, even if it was for a short time.

Afterwards we headed back to Steph's and got ready for an awesome bachelorette party! In short, it was a super fun time! There were 7 of us total, 3 sets of sisters (my sister and I, and 4 of our cousins), and the bachelorette's step-sister. Here are a handful of pics from our night out.

I can't wait to see everyone again in 6 weeks for the wedding!
