Kicking Off Football Season

If you’ve read my bio, you may know that this is most wonderful time of the year for me!  Football season is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited. Some of my favorite memories are Sunday game days with my besties and I’m so ready for another season of victories for my Vikings!

Twin Cities One Mile Race Recap

A few weeks ago, I signed up for a one mile race because it had a cheap entry fee and seemed like a fun event. I haven’t tried to run just one mile since last summer, and I was curious to see what time I could get. I’ve focused a lot on speed workouts and cross training this winter and spring, and I’ve seen a lot of results in my shorter/faster distances. Last summer, my mile time was 6:11 and I was curious to see if I could break 6:00 this time.

What I Learned from Trying Out to Be an NFL Cheerleader

**Warning this post is a personal one! So if you’re just here for the home remodel DIYs you can skip ahead. But I’d love for you to stay! 🙂

I shared with you all a few months ago that my new years resolution this year was to just do things. I’m the type of person that always talks myself out of trying something new and I feel like that’s kept me from going after the things I really want to do in life.

One of those things that has always been on my “what if” list was trying out to be an NFL cheerleader. I had no idea of my potential and haven’t danced in years, but why not try? I took the leap and signed up for the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders prep classes and tryouts. There was no going back!

Touchdown Football Cake DIY

I’m usually not a big baker/pinterest craft kind of person (my talents lie in installing ceilings and floors more than the finer crafts..). But, when it comes to Super Bowl Sunday, I go all out. Every year, I try to top myself with the best football-themed snacks.

This year, I offered to make a dessert for the party I was attending. I saw a couple of cute ideas for football field cakes on pinterest, but decided to do my own spin on one. My friends and I all went to the Minneapolis Miracle playoff game a few weeks prior to the Super Bowl and that was really the only thing we still had to celebrate at that point. (Sad).

I decided to make the Minneapolis Miracle in cake form, including cookie versions of the players and it turned out so cute! This idea could work for different sports (hockey, basketball, volleyball) and would be perfect for a birthday party or team celebration.
