I received product in exchange for this post. No monetary compensation was exchanged. All opinions are my own.

The big game is making its way to Minnesota’s cold tundra in approximately two weeks and despite the Vikings’ devastating loss to the Philadelphia Eagles (where was our defense anyway?), the entire Twin Cities area is in a heightened state of excitement. While there are lots of events celebrating the arrival of spectators to the big game there’s one very exciting and special event that Ridgedale Center is hosting that I cannot wait to share with you. Read until the very end of this post for a special giveaway for one First Time Mom reader to win an autograph-signing ticket with Brett Favre!
