buckets of presents

the best time is always the presents.  if presents come in the afternoon, you get to wait all day for them, and if they come in the morning, well, your day is off to a pretty good start.  jon left at 3am for a work trip, and he placed phantom of the opera tickets on his pillow — as in, we’re going to the broadway show in december.  this event is significant for a couple reasons 1) jon is the sweetest (he was on the advanced ticket waiting-list to get the seats) and 2) seeing phantom has been on my bucket list for a couple of years now.  i made a bucket list for minneapolis when we moved here, and since i had zero plans today, i decided to get started by taking kinzie to the stone arch bridge, a pedestrian and bike trail famous for the panoramic views of st. anthony falls:




here is the rest of my minneapolis bucket list:

catch a fish at one of the lakes
see northern lights
go whitewater rafting
ride in a hot air balloon
invite neighbors to dinner
visit renaissance fair
go dog sledding
take the polar bear plunge
attend a murder mystery dinner
go to the canterburry camel races
attend artist-inspired mini golf at the walker
ride the minneapolis rail
see a show at the brave new theater comedy club
go on a minnetonka boat cruise
hike copper falls
attend open mic night at acme comedy
rent a paddle boat on lake calhoun
tour the mill museum
spend the day at como zoo
see a show at the guthrie theater

whenever i mention the minneapolis bucket list, someone recommends another 2 or 3 things, and so my list is continually growing.  luckily for me, i love exploring, and so i can only hope that the list grows faster than i can check the items off.

One thought on “buckets of presents

  1. Mill City Museum has to be one of the best museums out there. Give yourself plenty of time to play! And make sure you go when they are baking something in the test kitchen … samples!!

    Let me know if you find a good spot to do a hot air balloon ride. That’s on my list too!

Tell me something happy:
