First things first! Be sure to check out My Minnetonka Story, which was featured yesterday on the Minnetonka Moccasin blog. You know I love my Minnetonka’s worn here, here, here, here, here, and here.

So it turns out having Wednesday off really threw my internal clock for a loop. Tuesday felt like friday. Thursday felt like Monday. But at least it’s actually Friday, right?

We had a really good holiday! We had grand plans to do absolutely nothing other than veg by the pool. But somehow we decided to head over to Conner Prairie, which is basically a historic interactive experience that sends you back to 1800s Indiana.

I’ve always loved history. In fact, I was an English major, but took more history classes than English. How does that even work? I kept thinking while we were at Conner Prairie that I want to live there! I love old houses and old-fashioned decor. And think how much simpler life would be without all the extra stuff of today.

After an evening swim in the pool, we were excited to discover that we could see Carmel’s fireworks from our deck. So we ended up seeing a pretty good display without leaving home!

Any big plans this weekend? TGIF!
