TBT: Minnehaha Falls

A few years back, Amy was visiting me in the Twin Cities, as I had recently moved there. I decided to take her to Minnehaha Falls, which is a great park in Minneapolis that happens to also have a waterfall.  During the summer it can be quite the busy park, but it is always worth the trip. Not only does it have a waterfall, but also scenic trails, overlooks, and river views. It is one of my favorite places in the Twin Cities. We took Continue Reading

Happy Birthday, Emily!

Twenty-eight years ago, we welcomed Emily into the world. I remember being soooo excited to have a little sister! (Of course, I love my brother, Andy, but I've been told when I found out my parents were having another baby, I asked if we could take Andy back.) Here's a photo of the first time we met. Sconnie Sisters for life. xoxoxo Continue Reading

TBT: Color Run

A couple years back, Amy and I (and Matt) did the Color Run in the Twin Cities. It is a super fun 5K. If you are going to run 3 miles, you might as well have fun.

Protip for anyone color running this year: Keep your mouth closed when you run through the color stations. Trust Continue Reading

Editor’s note: Once upon a time, we tried to start a blog. The year was 2009. The blog was called “Kant Touch Us.”  It shut down in 2010. We saved some of the posts however. Here’s one of those gems, originally posted in June 2009. Tonight after Em got off of work, we decided to go to Best Buy and Target to pick up some things for the house. For some reason, we decided that we EACH needed a cart to push around. We were probably obnoxious Continue Reading

TBT: Lazy Selfie

So TBT takes us all the way back to...May 3, 2014. Yes, less than two weeks ago. Amy and I were at our brother's house, celebrating his 30th birthday. We decided to take a selfie together. However, Amy was sitting on the cooler, and I was sitting on a hammock. We were about 5 feet away from each other. I was quite comfy in the hammock, so I had no desire to get up. Amy was also apparently comfortable sitting on a cooler (not sure what that says Continue Reading
