Little Bits: Long Weekend Recap

10:57 AM

Long weekends are awesome, even if they go by really fast. Kyle had to work most of it, but I was still busy as hell for the most part.

We started out by taking Liam to see 22 Jump Street on Thursday night with Brian. It was rated R, so Liam thought he was a real badass by seeing it. It was pretty funny! Kyle, Brian, and I stopped by Ferndale to have a drink at the pool hall afterwards.

Friday started off with me cleaning the house (I know how to party!). My parents took Louie for the day/evening, so that he wouldn't freak out alone when the fireworks went off later that night. My friend Mariah had an extra ticket to the Tigers game, and Brian had the day off so he bought a ticket too. We headed down early and had some beers at the Comet bar in Detroit, where a really nice old man bought us a round.

We then headed to the game, because what is more American than baseball? I caved and bought some poutine, because it is POUTINE. It was worth it. At the game, we continued to consume the adult beverages. After, we met up with Kyle and Dan for karaoke back in Ferndale. It was a late night of our usual shenanigans, and it was awesome.

Saturday, I was supposed to head to Eastern Market with friends, but was not feeling up to it (because beer), so I slept in. Later, I made my way out to Target, then hung out in the hammock reading for a good part of the day. Dan wanted to do something later that evening, and so we headed to Corktown to PJ's Lager house to check out some folk bands. It ended up being a really nice night, and we hung out on the back patio area drinking more beer, listening to the music that was being played inside, and taking turns petting the bar dog, Millie.

By Sunday we were pretty exhausted, but how else do you beat exhaustion other than more beer and a soccer match? Kyle and I were invited to our first DCFC game by our friends Becky and Pete, and it was AWESOME. So much swearing, shouting, and ALL of the smoke bombs! I really embraced my inner soccer hooligan, and it really made me miss playing soccer. I think we are going to try to sneak out to one more game before the season is out. 

We came home Sunday afternoon and decided to tackle some projects. I finished this little dream catcher like thing for the front door, and Kyle worked in the yard. All in all, it was a good, exhausting weekend. I also realized that we have things going on for the rest of the summer, and so alone time is going to be scarce. I may have to become a hermit during the month of September to recover. Send coffee.

  11. What a busy weekend! I don't think I could rival that as all I did was spend the entire Sunday cooking! Coming from the UK, where (apparently) football is our thing, I have never actually watched a live match. But I'm not a big fan so maybe it's not something I'll ever do.

    One day I'm going to have an awesome weekend and then the competition will be on ;)

  12. I nearly missed this post! I avoided poutine for years, decades even as I thought it looked kind of disgusting. Then I had some last year and completely changed my mind! We have that mall food court franchise called New York Fries and they do make really really good fries. I had their version of poutine because I was in a mall and desperate for some gluten free food and they assured me this one was gluten free. I loved it. I don't do very may stereotypically Canadian things but now I am a poutine eater!
