Trip to MI for work and friends

Many of you know that the reason I was able to be out in the Midwest so long in March is because I had to work at a conference in MI for work the following weekend.  I drove up there early Thursday morning, did some recruiting at Kuiper College and then arrived at a cute little house in GR and was happily reuinited with my wonderful friend Caitlin!

It was so fun to catch up and hang out in their hood.  On Thursday, Cait made some yummy pot pie and then we went out for a beer at a sweet pub/restaurant called The Winchester.

I was browing the specialty beers when I came up a brew from a certain Stone Brewing Co. of Escondido, CA! Little did I know, even in snowy MI, I couldn't escape home!


One of my favorite couples!



I browsed the menu just for fun and was so impressed with the selection, I just had to try these pierogies


They did not disappoint, and as you can see, they didn't hurt the wallet either!
I've been so desensitized to high costs, I was shocked to see how affordable MI menus are priced.


oh yummy.

I have no pictures to document the rest of the weekend...but it involved me working two 13 hours days, antique book shopping for my studious husband, lots of Biggby coffees, meeting up for lunch with Gary, Christie and Fam, meeting up for a beer with AJ, and a really great conference on Revelation.

But after 11 days away, I was ready to be home!
