Minnesota Love

Minnesota is the "least miserable state" or what I just call the happiest state, according to Bloomberg.  Now that's even more true since the Vikings are dominating and Green Bay is sucking.  I know, I know, it's all the replacement refs fault... but in the words of my sister:

As a Vikings fan I don't feel too bad for the fans complaining that the refs ruined the game. While that may be true, I'd rather have bad calls in game 3 than in the NFC championship. #stillbitterfrom2009

I have lived in Minnesota my entire life, except for 2 years when I went to college at UWEC and I am definitely a Minnesota girl through and through.

Sure it is cold here sometimes, but we have so much to offer.  Tons of lakes (90,000 miles of shoreline which is more than California, Florida and Hawaii combined... whoa right!?) and the biggest mall in the US (Mall of America, of course)... what more does a girl need?

Since I love my state, I was very excited to receive "Minnesota Grown" tees from Minnesota Apparel.  I love representing my state, and they tees are super soft, fit great and are very comfy - definitely my favorite t-shirt.  My hubby loves his too (nothing better than a Minnesota guy!).  Check out to get your Minnesota Grown tees if you are Minnesotan and proud of it!

Q: What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a Minnesotan?

I love hearing about stereotypes of Minnesotans, I think they are hilarious so don't hold back.  I'll even tell you what I think of your state if you want :)

This girl who used to work at my office was from Minnesota, and she had this terrible accent that sounded just like Sarah Palin. So for some reason my head connects Minnesota with Sarah Palin. Yikes. Cool shirt though and I really like that dress with the belt that you're wearing. :-)

Funny, my boyfriend was supposed to come play hockey in Minnesota like 2 years ago. He didn't do it though, since he was to crazy about me, haha ;) But he did enjoy the three weeks he spent there for the try outs and definitely wants to come back sometime and bring me with him ;)

Love from Holland,

About Last Weekend said...

Wonder why your state is so much happier? More connected with family, more downtime? would be interesting to know. Everything goes a little bit too fast in the Bay Area, too much driving around in our cars.

I don't know that I can think of any stereotypes...

P.S. As a Seattle girl, I'm not all that brokenhearted about the call either and think it was blown out of proportion because it was against Green Bay.

Brooke said...

I know nothing about Minnesota to be honest! But I can only imagine how gorgeous the lakes are! And sometimes I long for a little cold during the winter time... it doesn't feel like Christmas here when one can go to the beach that day!
