V-Day Weekend Recap!



Chris and I left Friday afternoon for Detroit. We stopped right outside of it to eat at this Brazilian restaurant. There were 13 different types of meat, and an all you can eat salad bar. It was so yummy! My favorite meat was the lamb, and Chris loved the pork.

After such a huge meal we went to our hotel, and found out that our room had a HUGE HUGE HUGE Whirlpool jacuzzi tub. It was AWESOME! We took a 3 hour nap at the hotel, and then ventured out to the Twelve Oaks Mall. The mall was huge! Chris and I had a lot of fun walking around and looking at different types of stores, and clothes.

After our mall adventure we picked up some Little Caesars and headed back to the hotel, where we watched tv and waited to go see "Confessions of A Shopaholic" Chris and I went to the most ghetto theater, and a man and his gf or wife fought throughout the entire movie! After the movie we ran to the car!

Chris and I woke up on Saturday, ate at the hotel and then headed out to the Detroit Temple. We heard that the temple was really small, but we had no idea how small it actually was. It was tiny! We were so grateful to attend the Spors sealing, and then spend a few hours in the temple. We had such a neat experience that day, that we will never forget. We are going to start going more often.

We had such a nice and relaxing weekend, and are so grateful we were able to get away and focus on each other. I can't wait to be able to do that again soon.

That is great that you got to spend some Quality time together. It is always fun to just hang out with your husband, and go to the temple together. I love it when we get a chance to go. It makes life so much sweeter. Dan and I love Brazilian food. Dan went to Brazil on his mission, so he loves it when ever we get a chance eat Brazilian food. Sounds like you had a perfect weekend.

What a great time together!!! You two needed that in the worst way! That's awesome! Sounds like it was one fun or interesting thing after another. The Detroit temple is a tiny temple, isn't it? It's very pretty though. I love the homes in the area. So gorgeous!

Sounds like an awesome weekend, minus the ghetto people in the movies. Yikes, I hate when that happens.

*hugs*
