i'm back... I am finally posting. I was so far north that my cell phone barely worked, no tv, no internet and only one radio station. I did actually pay $4.00 for an hour of internet on Saturday, but that did not give me enough time to post photos.

So here is the run down of the vacation...

• We stayed in a cute little cabin. Very rustic.
• Zero moose seen (although we spent an entire day looking for them).
• No northern lights :(
• Kayaking on a lake that looked like glass while it was 48° outside.
• A little bit of shopping.
• A little detour on the way to the north to Stillwater, MN. Very cool!
• We got kind of lost on a forest road.
• Beautiful fall colors.
• Cool weather.
• I saw Canada.
• Hiked to the largest waterfall in MN.
• Hiked for 6 miles up a mountain on Saturday (I thought my legs were going to fall off ;)
• Went to the moose festival in Grand Marais (no moose their either just a lot of shoppers).
• Collected rocks and looked for agates.
• Had 5 layer chocolate pie at Betty's Pies for breakfast ;)

Now back to civilization. I kind of fell like I need a Target fix now although getting away for the week was amazing!

Here are the photos from my trip...

more fun...

Last week was a week of fun and this week is going to be awesome too. Last Wednesday we rented a photobooth here at work. It was so fun. We are going to use the photos on our new website. Above are some of the photos Cassie & I took ;)

This afternoon I am off to Northern Minnesota. I am the luckiest girl in the world. I will try to blog from there. My internet obsession might be limited. I will post photos when I can.

The goals for my vacation week are:
• see moose
• see northern lights
• see fall
• relax
• kayak in the cold

stay tuned...

one day...two hats

I had the most wonderful surprise when I got home tonight. There is this really cool girl named Kirsten and she made me the most coolest hat! She is a super fast crafter and she does not even need a pattern.

I am the luckiest girl! I can't wait to wear my bear hat.

Thanks Kirsten!

p.s. it was a little hard to photograph my head, show off the bear hat and take the photo ;)

what happens in an agency...stays in an agency
(well kind of)

My super cute hat that i bought from (pictured above) came today. I LOVE it!

Pictured below is superman/senior art director Mike. You may not know it from this photo but he can actually bench press 420 lbs. Who knew he would also make a great hat model.

I guess this is what happens when we get back from design camp ;)

We're back ;)

I have been back from design camp for little over and hour and just got all my photos posted to flickr. I decided if I did not do it right away it might not happen.

We had a great time! I LOVE Minnesota. I think I could live there. The resort was wonderful, the workshops were wonderful, the speakers were wonderful and the people I went with were wonderful and fun. Design camp is such a great weekend. I feel so creative right now.

Mae, Marnie, Mike and I had a great time. Lots of laughs, giggling, making fun of each other and just over all fun. There are so many stories to tell I don't know where to start.

I am so thankful we are able to go. We are so lucky. If you would like to check out more photos here is the link...

Design Camp is...
