Kenny Chesney in Sioux Falls

Back in December (I believe it was) I surprised my hubby with tickets to see his favorite musician, Kenny Chesney. Time flew by and before we knew it, we were on our way to Sioux Falls for the day/night to enjoy the concert. We of course took some extra time out and visited a few spots in the city for some exploration.

I’ve seen MANY pictures etc. of the falls, but have never actually been there. Well, I finally made it! It also, did not disappoint. So beautiful!

Next we discovered the Japanese Gardens. This was probably one of my favorite spots in the city. SO very beautiful and peaceful. It almost seemed like a hidden gem of the city.

We also got a suggestion from an awesome colleague of mine to visit a local brewery called Remedy Brewing. I have to admit, this is probably on my top all-time favorite breweries I’ve visited. The beer was SPECTACULAR and the environment was very unique and relaxing. Of course we had to try the candied bacon. 🙂

We topped off the night witnessing a truly epic concert. So happy we were able to make this happen and enjoy another AMAZING weekend together! ❤

Duluth – Work & Mini Getaway

Derek and I had the chance for a little mini-getaway to Duluth this past week. It was a much needed mini vacation and at the same time I got to spend a couple days working out of our Duluth location and seeing the rest of my team.

This was my very first trip to Duluth so there was plenty to do and see. We enjoyed a ton of small local business shopping, and some great dining experiences with plenty of brewery visits as well (see our post on the breweries here). I do have to admit, I can’t wait to go back when the weather is warmer and can get to enjoy a few more of the outdoor activities though.

One interesting thing I learned while trying some of these… I’m actually a dark beer fan. I always thought I hated them but apparently my taste buds have changed a little.

These nachos at Fitgers were fantastic!
