As a surprise for my birthday, tomorrow, and our tenth anniversary, July 4th, my husband booked us a room at the Grand Traverse Resort just outside Traverse City. I'm very excited about heading out there since it will be a chance for Steve and me to be together alone, something we haven't done in a long while. I'm looking forward to doing the things we did before we had kids: drink a vodka martini (just me - Steve prefers Manhattans), smoke a cigar, gamble in a casino, and have a quiet dinner. Not in that order, though.
I am planning on taking a nap today, at least I hope I can take a nap, otherwise, tonight's plan of martinis, cigars, gambling and dinner will not come to fruition and our anniversary night will not be very anniversary-ish, if you get my meaning. I also want to get over to West Branch and see if I can find something sexy and fun to wear tonight. I have an image in my head of what I'm looking for, but I'm not sure I will be able to find it at the small, but nice, Tanger Outlet in West Branch. If I were looking for a Coach purse, not a problem. West Branch had the only Coach outlet in all of Michigan for a long time. Then Birch Run put one in, but theirs isn't as nice.
As I said, I'm hoping to get to West Branch to find something sexy and fun. I'll let you know if I have any success.
