# 6 Fly
Here I go, off to Michigan for a few days during my Christmas break to visit my bestie Megan. We get to see each other 1 or 2 times a year, now that I live outside of the States. I am a little bit chubbier and more out of shape since the last time she saw me... Oh no, should I fast to drop a few? What will she think? Will she give me a "Poor Rachael got chubbier" look but still hug me at the airport anyway? (think Mom saying "Better luck next time" kind of face). Or will she not even bat an eyelash? Maybe, just maybe she won't give a hoot and we will get straight to tooling around in the minivan, cranking music and drinking ice coffee, hackling so loud and uncontrollable like we were 16 again? Yup you got it, we picked up right where we had left off!
Got off the plane, hadn't seen each other in 6 months and there we were; rolled up jeans, funky socks and colorful Doc Martins..Yup, just as I had expected, back to being 2 teenagers in Gap Kids, squeezing into funky printed Mary Jane's. Oh wait..I forgot to ask her if she was disappointed that I had got chubbier! Guess we were too busy planning our gluttonous itinerary of lunch, donuts and shopping.
# 7 Go To Bars
Okay, so maybe we weren't at a bar but we were at a super cute and hip restaurant called Toast in Birmingham, MI. Here Megan is out of control with a Peach Bellini and I am having no regrets about my Spicy Maria garnished with a blue cheese stuffed olive. We were about to eat sandwiches bigger than our heads(and with the amount of hair we both have, that means real big)!(but don't worry we had salad too.)
# 10 Eat In Public
On my second day of visiting, I insisted we got down to business (I only had 4 days after all)!I needed to know where we could get homemade, old fashion cake donuts. Megan, being a very resourceful girl knew right where to take me. We walked into Dom's Bakery and about died from the gloriousness of the smell. After causing a scene with our loud and child like indecision, we chose cupcakes. Okay, honestly we actually did a recon trip there the day before, but we had the kids with us and we had to behave. However this time, without babes-in-tow..all bets were off and we could lavish our moment.
Look at these photos. Megan has a euphoric, glazed over look on her face, like she had been waiting for this moment all her life. Me, well I look like I am on the edge of my seat urging Megan to hurry and take the photo,so I can find the meaning of life in the beautifulness set infront of me. Oh and then..we stuffed our faces in public without regrets or cares if anyone was watching!
