And....I'm Spent

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeew.
Happy Sunday Eve
{Or Monday if you are a little slow in reading this...}
I don't know about you but I am tiiiiired.
I was lucky enough to spend the last 4 fabulous days with mi familia.
We went to a little gem of a place six hours North of us-
Mackinac Island.
Ever been?
Go.
It's really fun in a "simple do nothing" kind of way.
And by simple, do nothing I mean:
Wake up-eat-walk around-eat-sit on the front porch-eat-shop-drink at a bar-sleep,
and repeat again the next day.
Perfect?
Absolutely.
I managed to take just a few pictures during the last four days.
And by just a few I mean 290 + or -
I realize you would like to spend the next 2 days of your life looking through each and every one of them, but I don't have time to upload them all currently.
Booooooooo.
Instead, I'll leave you with a few.
(Okay maybe like a 100...)
You can only get to Mackinac Island via Ferry....
Insert our ferry:
The beautiful Island as you approach...
No vehicles are allowed on the Island meaning you can travel three ways:
Bikes
Walk
Or by horse and carriage. 
Thankfully because of no vehicles, it means you can sit at the bars for as long as you want and not worry about how to get home ;)
Carriage Ridin' it up.
Us girls entering the Butterfly Garden.
I've never seen so many of those beauties at one time.
I love them :)
There was a lot of finding belly buttons on the trip...
And cheers'ing to great times
Oh, just gettin' our sweat on...
Moi pictured with the Grand Hotel.
She kinda loves life...Like a lot.
Just hangin' with one of our friends..No biggie.
The "Downtown" area at evening..
Annnnd...last but not least, lots of quality Ipad time on the drive there and home.
{I dominate at this game..just sayin'}

That's enough for now..
I must go return to the 5 loads of laundry that are calling my name.
I've learned that you can't really use selective listening when it is the laundry speaking to you.
Laaaaaaaame.
Also, I just spotted my husband sound asleep on the couch.
My jealousy levels are quickly rising......

Tomorrow
{and by tomorrow I mean Tuesday}
 I'm gonna bust out some of my favorite items I've found recently.
Ooooh la la.
Wear your excited pants for that one.
Or wear none at all.
That might be a little more exciting.
It's really whatever you prefer.
I'm down with whichever.

Hope you have had a fantastic couple of day pretty pumpkins.
Mwaaaaaaaaaaaah.

  12. Oh my gosh! I HAVE to go there. It's beautiful. It looks like it would be about a 4-6 hour flight from where I live in Canada. This is now on my 'places to travel' list! :)

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
