Michigan.org is having a Pinterest contest. The lucky winner receives a trip for two to stay at the Grand Hotel.
Yup. That Grand Hotel.
All you have to do, is create a Pinterest Board “Pin to Win: Michigan in Love” and pin what makes Michigan romantic. Needless to say, my board is already created.
Sure. I don’t have too much. Only 14 pins. But oh, my! The fun I had putting this board together.
And since I haven’t blogged for nearly two weeks, what a wonderfully fun way to get back into it.
I do love Michigan. I miss my … read the rest. . .
I grew up in Michigan before we transplanted to California many years ago. [Okay, not that many…]

Saturday was National Coffee Day. To celebrate this, and Second Daughter’s successful Mary Kay kick off party, we spontaneously drove down to Casey’s Cupcakes at the Mission Inn. It was close to 7pm before we even hit the road. But after the Mary Kay party, we were all dressed up with otherwise no place to go.

Last night I took Dot and Second Daughter out to celebrate National Coffee Day. We made a 40 minute drive to My Favorite Place. It was well worth it.

So here’s a few photos for you to enjoy while you look forward to tomorrow’s post.
