Soakin’ Up Summer | MN State Fair

It’s about time that I start diving into our Fall events, but first, I just want to make one final post in this series. I think a visit to the Minnesota State Fair is one of the best ways to say “Goodbye” to Summer and “Hello” to back-to-school and Fall, soon to follow. ┬áThis year I decided to take Connor on the very last day of the fair, Sept 1st. The day before school would begin again. It was the perfect ending to Summer and summer break. We were both so tired after, that we got an early night before school the next day. We’ll be making it a tradition.
Unfortunately, my timing wasn’t quite on track that day. We didn’t arrive until around noon and the place was just beginning to get crowded. We stuck to Connor’s favourite spot; the mighty midway & kidway area. Where all the games are. Going on the last day of the Fair, also meant discounts on the games. We came home with so many stuffed animals and toys. Too many. Next year I will plan to arrive far earlier and explore the other areas more.
You can view our trip there last year, here. So, how do you say “Goodbye” to Summer?

Before we’ll be seeing the end of October (these days are going by fast, too fast) and before I start recapping on fun fall events, I have to acknowledge that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
My mother is a two-time survivor to breast cancer, currently fighting her second battle. So when I found out about a reveal of “The Caribou Coffee Arch of Hope” to help inspire those affected by breast cancer at Cancer Survivors Park held on October 4th, I had take a look for myself.

All so pretty in pink! If you find yourself in Downtown Minneapolis, be sure to stop at Cancer Survivors Park for a look.

Influenster | #Stackerz Voxbox (1st for dogs!)

I was thrilled to be one of the first Influensters (1200 of us to be exact) that got to test out the very first Voxbox designed just for dogs! The Pedigree Voxbox. My girls deserve a little pampering too (don’t all girls deserve a little something just for them?!)
Inside their Voxbox was a bag of Pedigree Stackerz treats along with a coupon for more. With a flavour like Filet Mignon & Bacon my girls are eating better than me! Real meat is the #1 ingredient, so I know I’m not giving my girls something bad for them. I loved the easy breakable pieces so I could give my smaller dog a better fitting portion to her size.
One taste and my girls were hooked! Their interest in the treats honestly makes training easier. No more saying “Sit!” over and over or needing to push their behinds down. One word “Sit” and they’re sitting pretty for their stackerz!


Thank you Influenster & Pedigree, my girls LOVED their Voxbox!Signature*I received Pedigree Stackerz treats and a coupon courtesy of Influenster for product testing and review. All opinions expressed are my own.
