Bee and I were heading out of town on Saturday for his football game. We were going to play a team in Lansing, Michigan. We know not thing one about Lansing, but I googled it and..well..there still wasn't anything interesting about Lansing. Although, my mom did say (she is from Michigan) that the part of Lansing we would be in (Howell) has hot air balloon races in the summer, and maybe we would luck out and it would be this weekend.I don't know if it was, but we DID see one hot air balloon on our way home on Sunday :)
When I googled Lansing, I noticed that it happened to be about 50 minutes outside of Detroit. Detroit is where the hotel that Bee and I and our friends stayed at several times this winter. We LOVE that hotel. I asked him if he minded driving the 50 minutes back towards home and staying there. He didn't, so I booked us a room. This was after I saw that travelocity wanted $79 a night (to just call and book it, it's $189 a night) We were staying there for around $40-$50 a night this past winter. So, I thought, what the heck. I called and asked if they could do better. We got our room for $44 a night. Score!
We decided to rent a car too, because his car gets crappy gas mileage and mine gets GREAT gas mileage, but has no AC and after the trip to Battle Creek where we fought most of the way home because we were hot and irritated, we decided after saving so much on our room, we could get a rental. I am so glad we did!

Bee and and drove the whole way up there talking, laughing, sharing, giggling, flirting, and just generally enjoying each other. No kids, no stress, no other people with us. Just quality time. We held hands the whole way there...for no other reason than it felt right. Saturday afternoon he had his game. We lost. Same old story, but after, we hopped back in the car and drove to the Hotel. We had big plans! We were going to check in, drop our stuff off, he was going to shower and change, and then we were going to dinner, *I* picked Hooters. Why? Because I know HE would like it....and quite frankly, they have the BEST deep fried pickles and Lemon Pepper hot wings. Mmmmm...*drool*. I also got, like, 12344853423 "cool girlfriend" points because *I* asked to go there. He told his friends and they were all like "Whoa! your girl not only LETS you go, but wanted to?!" Um, yes. Really, Hooters is not bad. Girls wear less at the beach....and the mall....and the bar...these days. Plus, all the girls are really nice :)
Yes, we play this sad, too...
After dinner, we were going to hit the casino, then head back to the hotel and hit up the pool and hot tub! However, by the time we ate we were exhausted. Spending 4 hours running around in the Direct sun in 100 degree heat will wear you out! So, we grabbed two diet cokes to go, and went back to the hotel. I suggested swimming still, but Bee wanted to cuddle. So, we did :) And well... :P
The next day, we got up, took our time getting ready, and while waiting to check out, my sister text me asking if Little Man could stay until Tuesday. Apparently, he is having a great time! We agreed, and came to the realization that we had nothing to rush home for. J wasn't due in until 8pm (but she can take care of herself), C was staying with Grandma Bee until Monday night! So, we took our time coming home. Spent the drive talking, laughing, flirting, and holding hands :) Then, Bee's brother text us and asked if we wanted to come down to see his show. It was a rare Sunday afternoon show, and we thought, what the hell? Why not! So we did!

We got there and had a few drinks with Bee's brother and sister in law, and then after a set, we left and came home. We grabbed a pizza, unloaded the car, and settled in for the night with a movie. We turned in early and we both managed to fall asleep instantly. haha! It was a GREAT weekend, and I can't wait to have many more!
