Paint Creek Trail5:40 PM
Saturday afternoon Kyle, Louie and I headed out to Northern Oakland County to check out the Paint Creek Trail. It was the first rail-trail in Michigan and is the right-of-way of the the former Michigan Central Railroad and Penn Central railroad lines. The trail is 8.9 miles long, but Kyle and I only managed about three because the Cider mill was close by and was closing at 5pm, derailed by cider and doughnuts! No cars are allowed on the trail, and there were runners, joggers and bikers galore! Kyle and I felt so out of shape just strolling along with our overgrown puppy. However it was really pretty, and you can bet we will be back again.
This outfit is composed of some old favorites, and was a good idea in theory, not so much in action. I wanted to wear a cropped sweater with this dress and I did not have one so I folded this one under and secured it with a belt. However, the extra folds in addition to the ruffles on the top of the dress made me appear so poofy. Oh well, I still liked the colors and this sweater does not get enough love on the blog, although I wear it often enough at home.
There is still a ton of schoolwork on my plate this week but I am so looking forward to the weekend already! A movie, and spending time with friends, squeee! The plan is to go to one of our favorite places Luna, but somehow word got out that it was the least pretentious bar in Royal Oak and now there is always a line. The owners just opened another one up in Ferndale so we might check that one out or there is always karaoke. Hurry up weekend and get here already!
