A Weekend Getaway

Leland and I had the most amazing weekend in Marquette, MI.

As most of you know, I don’t *do* winter. I loathe it. It turns me into a mean and nasty person. It makes me whine and cry and act really pathetic. My attitude makes Leland want to run and hide. He cannot handle me during the winter months. So you can just imagine our surprise when I was happy and relaxed and enjoyed my weekend even farther up north where there is a ton more snow.

At least there is more snow there right now, but I am sure that won’t be the case when we get the 24 inches of snow that the weatherman keeps threatening.

The weekend was all kinds of wonderful. The groom’s parents rented a coach bus for all of the out of town guests heading up for the wedding. So instead of having to deal with the long drive, we were able to sit back, relax, drink a ton of beer, and have fun with the other people on the bus. At some point during the trip I was loaded enough to think it was a good idea to call the hotel and ask for a room upgrade.

And boy I am glad I did.

Leland and I spent the weekend in a huge suite with a Jacuzzi in the bathroom. I know I don’t need to be specific about what we did all weekend! Unlike the other people who were anxious to spend the extra time out at bars, Leland and I spent the weekend in our room. We took lots of long bubble baths, we drank wine, we played card games. We did a ton of relaxing.

The wedding was beautiful and the reception was so much fun. I think I danced the entire night. I think. There was an open bar so I can’t be too sure. You know how too much alcohol can make you brown out….

Everything was wonderful.

The only thing that was not awesome was the 6 inch heels I decided to wear. They were a big mistake. What was I thinking? I am the klutz supreme. I should have known better than to buy 6 inch heels! They did look really hot though!

I didn't even know there WERE 6-inch heels! I have 4-inch and that is quite enough.

Glad you had a GREAT time with Leland!

Cool! I have shoes that are 6 inches long.. but not 6 inches high. Is that legal?

:) I'm glad you and Leland got away for a weekend and enjoyed yourselves!!!

Wow.. 6 inch heels? I bet that had Leland draggin' ya back to the room!

I hope you didn't get any (or all) of that snow they predicted - sounds like getting all that snow would undo the nice weekend...

Six inch heels?! You'd better watch out, wearing shoes like that can lead you to being barefoot. And pregnant! =) Glad you had a great weekend!

You can always send those heels my way. I'm glad you guys had such a good weekend; you certainly deserved it.

MiMi said...

6 inches?! Holy crap!! I would have broken my neck. lol

Cathy said...

The bus was an awesome idea. Talk about making it easy for the guests to get to the wedding.

Sounds like it was a fun weekend. I love a good wedding dance.
