Earlier this week, I was out in Michigan visiting Le Copain and his family! I’d never been to the Midwest and hadn’t met Le Copain’s family after dating for 15 months(!) so everything was very new to me (in a good and exciting way).
(Total creeper shot. It was too cute not to and I may have showed it to le copain afterwards/insisted he get an Instagram account… he didn’t :/ )
As for what we did…
*We ate out a few times including at this hot dog and diner-y place called Coney Island and at a fro-yo place called Mechies where they tell you to “Have a smiley day” when you pay :D.
*We saw his brother’s basketball game (which his brother was the top scorer for!! and which the refs had no idea how to call fouls for).
*We watched a lot of TV—especially Friends and The Simpsons.
*We played Mario Party, Guitar Hero, and Battleship, played with his adorable dog named Snowball :D, visited with his parents some, and
*We went to an outdoor mall for a bit with cool Christmas lights, but got cold so ended up fooling around in the Apple store for awhile… go figure :P
As for visiting Michigan for the first time… it wasn’t that different than New York. There were some different chain stores, speed limits were 70 mph, most cars were American made, and a lot of buildings/houses were built with bricks. So yes. That was Michigan! Hopefully I’ll be back soon enough!
I think that’s about it for my travels, but all…people/places/things were lovely.
PS: Hi amies! Your lives are interesting. I’d love to hear your adventures too!
PPS: Le Copain found this online while I was chez him. Quite the funniest!
PPPS: Birthday list here!
