I found myself caught in a torrential downpour on my way to the Mall of America where the salon was stationed. The 20 minute drive from St. Paul was stressful. I found the salon easily, but it seemed everyone and their mama was at the mall, making nearby parking tough to find. Was I smart enough to check the car for an umbrella? Of course not. Thankfully, Erin came prepared.

We stood out in the drizzle for several minutes before being informed that the stylists had been relocated to the mall for safety purposes. Apparently high-voltage equipment in a glass & metal box in the middle of a parking lot in a thunderstorm is NOT safe (good to know). So we waited. Took pictures. Waited. After a few minutes, the stylists filed back into the salon and we were told to wait for the all clear from their weather source. Thunder rolled again and once more, the stylists made their way back to the mall to wait out the weather.
I couldn't stay. I never got styled. Major bummer. Instead, Erin and I grabbed a bite to eat, talked blog, then sadly parted ways. Thankfully, she was able to get in for a cute style before the day was out. So needless to say, Erin's review of the style salon is much better than mine.
