January 2019

Kohls –  I got a Kohls gift card for Christmas and I was excited to get some new clothes for the new year ! I have to be honest though I was kind of disappointed with the sales at Kohls. Even the items that were marked down were still on the pricey side . I went to the clearance racks and I was able to find some things that I loved ! My favorite thing that I got is a shirt with stars all over it I also got a new pair of shoes for an amazing price . clearance is the way to go !

After spending some time checking in and relaxing in our really nice room at the Springhill Suites . We went back downstairs and caught the shuttle to the Mall of America ! I had being wanting to go to the Mall of America for a long time and now this dream was coming true ! I was so excited when I got to the mall . I got pictures with the big beautiful star statue out front . Then we went inside to get something to eat . We went this amazing place called Freshii that has really and good healthy food . After eating we to this amazing store called five below I had heard of this store before but there are no locations close to me . I was so excited to shop at this amazing store ! Five Below is really awesome because the max price that you can pay for an item is $5 ! There was a lot to choose from I ended up finding some My Little Pony items , a cute TY Beanie boo panda , some cute pencil grips and some bear shaped pencil sharpeners .  After shopping at Five below I wanted to go to the mall of America gift shop it took a while to find one but I was so glad that I did !

This was my first full day at the mall of America ! The thing that I wanted to do the most was the Crayola Experience ! It’s like a hands on museum ,there are lots of projects you can do . My favorite was called the melt down where you got to create a picture using melted crayons ! There was also this really cool station where you could take a picture of yourself and print it out to color ! Another one of my favorites was getting to make your own crayon labels !  The Crayola experience was my favorite thing that I did at mall of America ,it was just so much fun ! After that we did some shopping and ate at Freshii . At one of  the Minnesota gift shops in the mall I got a new Snow Globe for my collection . We had gotten tickets to see a movie later that afternoon but before it was movie time we did the amazing mirror maze. I had a fun time walking around the maze trying to find the way out ! It was a little challenging to figure out what was a mirror and what was a hallway but we made it through pretty quickly . After the maze we went to Carlo’s bakery . I love watching Cake Boss on TV but I’d never been to one of his bakeries before and needless to say to was very good . We also got some wonderful coffee from Caribou Coffee I wish they had Caribou coffee where I live ! The movie theater at mall of America does not disappoint ! It has very comfortable reclining chairs ,it was a great place to relax after doing a lot of walking ! After the movie we did one more activity before going back to the hotel .  We took a ride on Fly over America which is very similar to Soarin at Disney California Adventure but it has whole new places to discover ! This was a really fun day!

Today was amusement park day ! In the mall of American there is a huge amusement park called Nickelodeon Universe .  We started off the day with a ride on the Dora the Explorer themed Ferris wheel it was a cute and fun ride . I also really enjoyed the  bumper cars and of course the carousel. My favorite roller coaster was The Pepsi orange streak .  We also went to the Sea Life aquarium that was also in the mall. There were so many cool fish and sharks to look at . They also had turtles ! After the aquarium we played mini golf at the mountain moose mini golf course . It was such a cute and fun course and I got a free moose antlers ! It was another great vacation day at mall of America !

For our last day in Minnesota we slept in ,had breakfast , then headed to down town Minneapolis .  First we went to the Minneapolis American Indian center , we saw some beautiful art and got some wonderful and healthy food to go . After that we went to the Minneapolis sculpture garden. The sculpture garden was amazing ! There was so much to see I loved  many of the sculptures there including the swing that you could sit on , the snowman ,the rabbit on the bell , and the famous cherry spoon ! We ate our lunch on the picnic tables at the sculpture garden . Soon after we ate it stated to rain so we went back to the hotel . After some time at the hotel we went back to the Mall of America one last time before we left . We did some shopping I got two new books . I also got some Caribou coffee . It was the perfect way to end our time at Mall of America !
