On Fridays, we wear jeans! This was from last week Friday, the outfit that I wore to the Tigers game, I love baseball, I need more of it in my life.
I am standing by Pinwheel bakery/Red Hook coffee shop in downtown Ferndale in these pics. Kyle and I typically will treat ourselves to breakfast on Fridays. It is that one thing to look forward too on Friday morning, when all I want to do is sleep-in and wait for the weekend. Good food tends to put me in a good mood. Also, coffee.
Ferndale is the city I grew up in, and I always think it is funny when people ask me what it was like growing up here. Of course it is a popular hangout now, with the mix of eclectic and generic bars, lots of places to eat, tattoo parlors, and hair salons, not to mention the Rustbelt market, and loads of other cool things. However, growing up here wasn't as awesome. It wasn't bad by any means, but it was boring as piss. Seriously, downtown used to be home to a few giant convince stores, the Gap, and a Mc Donald's'. There was a really, really shitty pet store on Woodward, where all of the animals looked like they were going to die the minute you took them home (they usually did), there were no festivals, maybe one art fair, and the highlight of the summer was the Woodward Dream Cruise (which was cool when it was confined to Ferndale, but now it is just a chaotic mess). Now, it is chock-full of small businesses, there is a bike route, lots of questionable artwork all over the place, and the houses are pricey.
Not that I am complaining, I think it is awesome to watch a boring-ass city in the suburbs do a 180, I really do. But when people asked what we did for fun as kids, it was usually kicking dirt and/or teaching our younger siblings how to swear.
