A Tale of 2 Brunches
|Rachel's Lookbook + P.S. I'm from the Midwest|
As I’ve mentioned before, I love my girlfriends and am frequently including them in posts as they are such a huge part of my life, time, inspiration, opinions on Housewives cast members, etc. So I was thrilled when I came across Rachel’s Lookbook, and had an immediate girl-crush on Rachel and her down-to-earth, adorable blog.
Rachel is a blogger in my home state, Minnesota, and after a few emails we quickly figured out she is dating one of my high school classmates – I was (and still am) so excited about this knowing fate and Sauk Rapids-Rice HS brought us together.
The two of us decided to A. be friends! B. Collaborate on a post that shares our favorite local brunch spot and our favorite brunch-wear. I need zero excuses to dress up for pancakes I don’t make myself, and was very excited to work with Rachel (and have a new Midwestern girlfriend!)

|Rachel recommends the veggie hash as tops, but said the steak salad and strawberry waffles were (obviously) delish.|
P.S. Rachel and I will be meeting in mid-June in Minnesota for coffee (or a cocktail) which we’ll be sure to chronicle on her Instagram account and mine.
