Events of the Weekend

This weekend was one of the best I've had in awhile. Friday after work, Kevin and I enjoyed a walk around Royal Oak where we ended having dinner at Cafe Muse, a small resturaunt on Washington that we had never been to. The prices were a little high, but since we weren't starving it was fine, and our waitress was a doll. Kevin had a soup and michigan salad, I had there mini sliders, which weren't like regular sliders at all, they were two tiny burgers with different toppings. It was so good. I haven't had beef in awhile, Kevin and I mainly eat chicken, and since it's been the New Years, some pork (german new years good luck food). We really hardly eat meat in general, hey there are only 4 canines in your mouth out of 32, so I feel like your diet should only be 12.5% or less meat (4/32nds), does that make sense? Haha, my weirdness shows!





As you can see I wore some shorts and tights. I'm trying out this new thigh high look, and I'm actually liking it quite a bit. Most of the outfit accessories are from the shopping with my left over gift cards from last week. I like the purchases a lot. And I love the little envelope necklace, when I put it on in the morning there was a note from Kevin in it, awwws ensued.








Anyway, afterward we met up with Sara and some friends celebrating her neighbors going away party'esque thing. She's moving to Hawaii, and we all are super jealous, I mean it's been below freezing here way too long! We all had fun playing shuffleboard at the bar and telling funny stories. The night ended with me and Sara climbing on top of the Caterpillar that sat on the rubble that used to be a neighbor's house. Sara of course fell on the way down, but thankfully she fell on the tread where there was give, thank goodness not on any of the super hard places. So here are the silly pictures of us acting very much younger than our age. Haha!








Saturday Kevin and I did wedding planning and a whole lot of nothing. Until the sun set at least. We soon bundled up and made our way to his cousin's new house for a house warming party. His cousin Eddie, is a fantastic musician, he is the lead singer/writer for the band The Sights, which are pretty big in the Detroit music scene. Anyway, his and his girlfriend's house is amazing! They are only the third owner, and I think he said the house was built in the 20-30's? But the previous owner had been there since '54. And he must've been paranoid because there were all these devices for protecting the house, generators, emergency plugs, motion sensors attached to bells, etc. I love houses like that, my sister Jennifer's old house had a bomb shelter, which probably originally was a root cellar or something.



So after the housewarming party we made our way to Dearborn, for my buddy Kristina's b-day party. I only have one photo from it before my battery died but I think it sums it up perfectly. Crazy.

And that brought us to Sunday, where Kevin and I slept in way way late and did nothing all day except watch a couple movies and make food for the rest of the week.

Yep, I live a glorious life... or this weekend was the most glorious in awhile.

You have been busy! I love the envelope necklace (with the note inside!), the photo of the beer and the one of you and your girlfriend on top of the caterpillar.
