I’ve always been the kind of person who likes to celebrate everything. I can always find an excuse to go out and do something fun! So, of course, I found a reason to drag Drew to Royal Oak (my favorite!) on one of the coldest days of the year…
I have a confession: I have a major sweet tooth. There’s no use denying it. I firmly believe that the best things in life are sweet! That being said, it’s important to practice moderation…but sometimes I just can’t help it. Especially during the winter months, I like to indulge a little more, to keep morale high.
For those of you who haven’t heard, I broke my hand on Christmas (how fun…). Everyone has been so great though, helping me out and taking care of me. Drew has been especially great, barely letting me lift a finger. He decided to use this opportunity to break out one of his birthday gifts.
This weekend, my mom and I were given an excuse to spend the day in the city (Detroit, that is). We are always looking for fun ways to spend time together without breaking the bank. This past weekend, some close family members had to go out of town unexpectedly and had purchased show tickets that they were going to be unable to use, so they called us and asked that we put them to use. Of course we happily obliged and decided to make a full day out of it.
Having been out of town for a couple weeks (and having missed Mother’s Day), my mom and I decided that it was high time for a ‘girls day out’. So, on Friday morning, we rolled out of bed (a little later than expected), and headed downtown. The weather has been unseasonably warm here, and we decided that we couldn’t let this lovely weather go to waste and headed to the Detroit Zoo.
