WOW. Michelle & I had an incredible weekend!
[Go straight to the pictures]
Too bad it ended so quickly. We flew up to Michigan for our first unofficial engagement celebration with some of my good friends. The first place we stopped was Jamboozie’s Friday evening immediately after the airport. We caught up with Ron and his Detroit cover band Room13. After a late night Friday we got off to a slow start on Saturday, but I still managed to give Michelle the whirlwind tour of some of my old stomping grounds.
Saturday evening we met up at Mr. B’s where all my (and soon to be Michelle’s) friends joined us for some quick drinks & munchies. Michelle was the belle of the ball and everyone thought she was great. Comments ranged from “Damn! She’s hot!” to “A.J. my friend, you have locked in WAY out of your league”. After spending time chatting (and bitching out the waitress for slow service) we gathered the group and headed over to Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle.
Towards the end of the night Michelle & I headed back out to Jamboozie’s to catch the end of Ron’s set with Room13. The crowd was wild (some too wild) and we soaked in all the visuals as Ron downed shots between songs.
Rollin’ out on Sunday I had a chance to take Michelle to the Franklin Cider Mill for yummy donuts & hot apple cider. Haven’t found such a place in Dallas yet, but I’ll be there every weekend if one exists. Nothing like hot cider on a cold day and hmmm… donuts. Ron had fun snapping photos as we were attacked by a gaggle of ducks. With our bellies warm & full it was off to the airport for the flight home.
Getting away was great even if it was only a few days. Can’t wait to go back next month!
