I love pop culture - movies, music, TV, books, etc. I dig a lot of current stuff but over the past few months I’ve found myself gravitating towards music, movies and TV from the 80’s and 90’s - all the stuff I grew up on. I don’t know why I started doing this, I just got this urge to revisit all this old stuff I grew up on. Whatever the reason was, it makes me happy to revisit the things I loved in my childhood.
So that means in the car I’m listening to lots of New Jack Swing & 90’s R&B, introducing my daughter to Michael Jackson’s greatest hits, and revisiting all the music I loved in high school.
At home I’m watching of ton of old stuff like Designing Women (which is now on Hulu!) and Golden Girls reruns, cause I can’t get enough of 80s sitcoms with 4 ladies, LOL.

Last weekend we made it to the Minnesota State Fair! The “Great Minnesota Get Together” is an institution - everyone goes to the fair. We’ve gone the last six years and I was really happy to keep the streak alive. Usually it’s hot and humid at the fair, but this year the weather was perfect - 75 and sunny with no humidity and a nice breeze. We got a chance to see a bunch of animals, visit a bunch of booths and eat a ton of food. Pregnancy means I couldn’t eat a few of my faves but I still got my fill of yummy treats on a stick.
How are you spending your Labor Day weekend? We’re heading to MI to visit my family and I can’t wait! We haven’t been home in almost a year and I’m so excited to see everyone and catch up.
