Last Thursday (February 1st) I was laying in bed; contemplating driving home for the Super Bowl.

I had just given my son $700 to pay for tuition and I just wasn't sure I wanted to pull more money from savings to cover all the costs.

After talking it over with friends, working logistics out with my boyfriend and moving some money around, I decided I couldn't miss it. FOMO was getting the best of me for sure; so off to Minneapolis I went; and I'm so glad I did.

Here are some of my favorite moments.

It was an exciting 36 hours filled with family, old friends, frigid temps and a frosting of snow; a perfect way to celebrate Super Bowl Festivities.

I am so proud of my home state for doing such a wonderful job hosting one of the biggest events of the year.
