Northern Exposure

How fun is this girl?! Can't wait to hang out with her!
Hey der! Haha. I am so excited I can barely contain myself!

Next weekend, I am heading up north to Duluth, MN to see one of my favorite people in the world, my friend Ann.

Initally, we were planning to go camping (slash get in one of my training runs, womp womp), but those plans fell through and we decided to just have an outdoorsy visit in the north woods. A decision I am totally okay with, because when I talked to Ann earlier this week, she said it was only in the 40s up there. My response via text was "Holy sh*t. I'm not even wearing socks." Can't exactly imagine sleeping outside. Not to mention that a few coworkers instilled me with a healthy fear of bears in that area. I am still having a hard time mentally preparing to wear socks...fall is here.

I submitted by passport renewal so that hopefully it will come in time for us to go to Canada. It's about a three and a half hour drive to get to Thunder Bay, Ontario. Which of course sounds like an exciting place to a girl who has never been to Canada. I'm in!

I also asked the following questions in preparation:

  1. I don't have any flannel. Will I stand out?
  2. "I suppose it wouldn't be very outdoorsy to get mani/pedis." (Not a question - but she said we could get 'em)
  3. Can I see a moose? Do you have those?!
  4. Are there any northwoods foods or drinks I have to try?
  5. Can we go to Tim Horton's? (I only know about this from HIMYM)
I told Ann that our weekend needs a name. I am proposing Northern Exposure.

Can't wait to see my friend and have an adventure! Just 7 days!
