Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in style, travel, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

ICYMI {WEEKEND IN MICHIGAN}

In case you missed it - which, I'm not sure how you could've from my excessive Instagram stories - I'm home in Michigan for the weekend. I've gathered my photos from this weekend and put them in a blog post because stories only last for so long, but these all made it to Instagram. Typically, when I'm at home, I'm not as active {because I'm not doing anything worth posting about}, but I had a weekend full of events. Also, I'm realizing that it's still September and hasn't even been a month since I moved back out - wow. It surely felt like 10 years. 

Thursday: I actually came back this weekend for a dermatologist appointment as a follow-up from this post, which was supposed to be on Thursday afternoon. Needless to say, I got there and my appointment was nowhere to be found, yet I had the appointment card to prove it. {Went back the next morning and was prescribed more of the antibiotics I'd been taking and was told to come back in another month. So, look forward to yet another follow-up post.}

On Thursday evening, I went to my first hockey game of the season at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan. I still don't like the name of the arena, but I can definitely look past it as the arena is amazing. Side note: I feel like I cheat a bit since at hockey games, I don't have the normal experience that a fan would. An exclusive experience makes it sound pretentious, but that technically would be the only word for it.

Thursday night hockey game looks...

At Little Caesars Arena, I was given tickets to the Player's Club, which is down on the private Entertainment Level of LCA. There, I was given an unbelievable service and the best food you can eat at a hockey game. There was endless options for food, drinks, desserts, everything and I think I tried it all. When the photo below was taken, I was eating smoked salmon. When do you ever eat smoked salmon at an NHL game?! Not to mention, at any point in the game, you headed down the private stairs to the lounge and could eat and drink and bring whatever you wanted out to the stands.

These are the only photos I have from the Club that's blog worthy - other than the picture glass wall separating from the club-goers and the Chicago Blackhawks - but I think that this is all the proof you need to see that the club is fantastic. Pictured here is the smoked salmon, the gnocchi carbonara, and the grilled lamb lollipop. My mouth is watering and I'm craving this again. I should also mention that regular spectators are able to purchase Club tickets at an expensive price, but trust me, it's worth it. 

Friday: This day was actually my complete ideal day and I didn't realize it until it was happening. It was spent at the Franklin Cider Mill and then another hockey game, of course. The temperature was perfectly cool and the sun was bright all day long. I picked up some donuts and apple cider and sat by the creek with my younger brother and dad.

And then later that day, I headed back down to LCA for the Wings' game versus the Toronto Maple Leafs. This time, however, I got a different - better - experience with the family perks of the arena. We all sat together in a near-lodge view of the arena and had on our obnoxious looking carnival wristbands to get in and out of the Club Level where the family room was. Inside the family room was the most gorgeous interior and a floor-to-ceiling window view of the practice rink. In there was unlimited food and beverages that were up to par with the Players' Club. I don't have any photos or videos of the family room, but it was a great time in there, so you'll just have to take my word for it. 

Saturday & Sunday: Were spent relaxing and catching up on homework and blog posts since during recruitment I did absolutely none of that. It was much needed.

 

What did you do this weekend?
