How I spent my weekend

Fear not, devoted blog readers, I have not fallen into total homework hell. I have managed to get myself out now and then.

Memorial Day 2011
Our friend, T-Bone, has a fabulous cottage on a medium-sized lake. It’s the perfect setting for soaking up the sun and not getting harassed by loud kids and souped-up, out-board motors. T-Bone has a pontoon that is the perfect size for the lake and pace of life for a relaxing weekend.

Cottage, Sweet Cottage


The Jolly Roger

Soaking up the sun


On our way to the cottage, Dear Hubby and I stopped at the local white trash hangout Dale Earnhardt Memorial grocery store. You’re right, I shouldn’t jump to such conclusions, but here were two tell-tale signs:

I was really hoping that was just a brand-name misstep


Dang. You only gotta tell me once. No need for a sign

The Boys of Summer
There is no denying that baseball and summer time go hand in hand. Considering our trouble with weather and the Detroit Tigers, Dear Hubby and I tried our luck with a minor league game. The local heros are the Lansing Lugnuts, the Toronto Blue Jays, single-A affiliate team. They are the hit of the capital city.

Before the game, Dear Hubby and I hit up the Nut House, obviously inspired by the Lugnuts.

The menu is absolutely amazing, and the atmosphere is welcoming for those fans who are ready to get trashed root, root root for the home team. Dear Hubby went for his classic cheeseburger and I chose the The Downtowner;
A ½ lb seasoned steak-burger patty served on a Kaiser roll, topped with grilled roasted red peppers, feta, tomato and shredded lettuce. Served with a side of housemade cucumber sauce –

Yea, I totally killed this.


Kaiser, my 2nd favorite set of buns to see on a Friday night.

Take me out to the ball game

I wish I could take credit for this picture, but isn't this a great stadium?


The game was between the Lansing Lugnuts and Peoria Chiefs. It’s sad to say, but the crowds just weren’t out on this particular night, so the festivities were slightly lacking. The Lugnuts are known for an entertaining show between innings. Having been out of the Lugnut Loop for awhile, I didn’t recognize any of the players, but it was still a lot of fun. Dear Hubby devoured a hot dog, popcorn, and ice cream. I bought a pretzel, but while dodging a near death foul ball, I dropped the last third of it on the ground. Upsetting.

Best seats in the house, besides the dugout. I still can't believe that usher yelled at me like that.
