Friday, Friday, FRIDAY!

You have no idea how excited I am that today is FRIDAY!

First, let me tell you what I did last night. I went to the Great Minnesota Get Together. The first time I've been there in years and it was wonderful. It funny how when you go in your 20's the focus is to try the drinks and not the rides, or to stuff your face with deep fried Twinkies.

I met my cousin at her apartment and enjoyed a nice cold one at Ferns. Seriously, who wouldn't want to have a bar in their apartment building?

After my annoying drive, I really needed this beer. I took me 45 min to go 6 miles because some genius planned a Vikings game, Gopher game, Twins game AND the State Fair all on the same day. That doesn't work, especially when pretty much every interstate in the Twin Cities is under construction.

Soon after, we were all on our way to the fair where our first stop was beergaritas. The only beergarita I've had is a lime-a-arita. I don't mind those, but these were seriously, just delicious. After beergaritas, we found our way to the pronto pup stand, cheese curds, and some beer tasting.

I have said it before, and I'll say it again. I'm just not a fan of Pour Decisions beer. I loved the Lake Superior North Shore Wheat and the Flat Earth beer wasn't too shabby either. I'm usually a fan of IPA's, but I think the after taste of the Infidelity was still on the tip of my tongue that I just couldn't enjoy the Summit Red Ale.

We walked around the fair for a few hours, sharing food and cooling down with more beer and beergaritas in between fried pickles, chocolate covered bacon, corn fritters, and Australian potatoes. Oh, you don't know what an Australian potato is? Let me tell you. It's a slice of heaven. It's a potato, smashed, deep fried and smothered in your choice of toppings. i.e. ranch, nacho cheese, etc.

While enjoying some Australian potatoes, I saw a sign that said Alpacas. I thought they were just selling Alpaca hats, but they were actually selling the cutest, live, real Alpacas!

I mean. Come on! How cure are these little darlings? The brown one melted my heart and felt like the most plush carpet in the world. I wonder if they make Alpaca rugs? That's something to ponder. Speaking of Ponder. The Vikings actually won last night against the Tennessee Titans. Shocking I know.

Today I'm off to the beautiful city of Milwaukee for a bachelorette party!

It's also the 110th Birthday of Harley Davidson so there will be a bazillion leather chaps and fish nets frolicking around the city.

Happy Labor Day weekend!

And because it wouldn't be a Friday without a linkup, linking up with Jennie and Lindsey!
