It was another action packed weekend.
Thursday: Danny and I stayed downtown after work and hit up Dangerously Delicious Pies. Against my better judgement I tried something new and regretted it. The sausage, fennel, tomato pie wasn’t bad but it wasn’t as delectable as the S.M.O.G and I had food envy. Then we met Cara, Matt, and Will* at Comerica Park for the Tiger’s game. It was great and the team won.
Friday: We had our first experience at the racetrack. Chris organized a birthday party for Emily at the Hazel Park Raceway and it was a unique experience. At $2 bets it’s a slow, cheap way to gamble and we had a good time. We left a little early so that I could get home to bake cookies for Emily’s shower Saturday. I tried a new recipe in order to find a chewy chocolate chip cookie and this recipe was a hit.
Saturday: I really pushed it in the morning and fit in the gym and a visit with Mom before heading to Ferndale for the shower. The party was really nice. The get to know you game was fun and the food was delicious! I have to find out where Chris’ mom bought the pies. Emily received a lot of nice presents and the cutest little helper in her baby cousin.
After the shower I went to the East side to Amyre’s graduation party. It was a short but nice visit. The Smiths (not blood related) recently moved to this BEAUTIFUL, large, old Detroit home and I have nothing but house envy. Some days I would love to take the risk and buy a house in Detroit but most days I say “No Target, no way”.
I concluded the evening with a Girl’s Night In. Katherine and Lindsey came over and we had a spiked slushy and watched Once Upon A Time. We tackled quite a few episodes and I’m glad they both enjoyed it.
Sunday: We lost power in the evening and I thought it was still out when we woke up. I called Mr. B to cancel our dinner plans but he suggested I come and cook at his place. Since I was going to have to get out of bed, I discovered we did have electricity and our dinner plans were back on. Jonathan came with him and the meal went well. I was surprised they enjoyed the mini apple pies I made as much as they did. I was exhausted before they even left and literally passed out on the couch. I spent the rest of the day relaxing and putting together my photo albums a project a full year behind. We also caught up on household tasks and made our place much more homey.
*I didn’t realize Will was joining us and he’s so much talker than he use to be I thought Cara was accosting a stranger when she stopped to take a picture outside of the stadium.
