Kailey Gonzalez is blowin' in the wind at pool party/ photo by Kelly Anderson

 

Word has it that one day in the future, Minnesotans won't have to wear seven layers of clothing just to check the mail. When that day comes, you may want to get a hold of Spicer's Kelly Anderson who throws one heck of a retro pool party. In fact, the bash that she and her husband threw last summer in Arizona for her kids was so epic, she's a finalist for "Best Parties in America," a contest being sponsored by the "Today" show. Anderson and two others will be featured on Tuesday morning's episode when the winner will be crowned.

And what comes with being crowned champion?

"A trophy," said Anderson, a photographer by trade. "Oh, and bragging rights."
