Baby, it’s cold outside.
I am going to try and fit in a quick post while I have some free time before we all go out for Jeremy’s birthday tonight. This morning was a late start. We didn’t get home until 2 am, so you better believe we all slept in!
I skipped my workout today. I had three very bad excuses to get out of it. 1. It’s Jeremy’s birthday. 2. It was way too cold to walk over to the gym. & 3. I wouldn’t have enough time to blow dry my hair.
Around eleven, I had my coffee, yogurt, and almonds.
Around noon, we left the apartment to go out for lunch. We wanted his parent’s to try one of our favorite Detroit restaurants, Fishbone’s. I have been to the one down town, but this was my first time at the St. Clair Shores location. Just as good!
I ordered an ice water with lemon and an unsweetened ice tea with lemon. I guess I was in the mood for both.
I have tried their jalapeno cheese sticks at the last location and they were phenomenal. We each had one to start off. The great thing about appetizers is you can split them. You have the chance to treat yourself without over indulging.
I had a couple bites of the bread, but wasn’t a huge fan. I don’t particularly like “sourdough” bread. My favorite rolls are at Texas Road House!
Jeremy ordered a side of Gumbo.I wanted to try it, but it had sausage. It smelled amazing! He said that if you guys ever go to fishbones, that it’s a must try!
I ordered the Cobb salad with ranch on the side, no bacon, and add onion! You better believe I threw those cherry tomatoes onto Jeremy’s plate, then he threw them on his mom’s plate, then he sank them into my ranch. We are so restaurant polite…
The salad also came with egg, chicken, cheese, and avocado. The only thing it was missing was some croutons. I’m a crouton queen. Oh and some nuts would have done the trick! But overall, it was a great salad!
After lunch, we headed downtown to the Hardcore Pawn shop so his parents could check it out. They love that show.
Detroit is a pretty great place, even with all of the hurt it’s been going through. If it was safe enough, I’d love to just walk around and take all kinds of photography shots. I can’t get enough of the city. To me, abandoned buildings and graffiti scream, “take my picture.” I’m addicted to documentaries on the city and graffiti artist.
We finally made it to the Pawn shop. It was pretty cool. Jeremy’s Dad got a kick out of it.
I had a little bit of the salad leftover from today, so I threw it on some bread and made it into a sandwich!
After a little exploring, we headed back to the house. I am currently relaxing while Jeremy plays his Xbox games. His parents are quietly napping and preparing for our night out. Jeremy’s mom has been longing for a Long Island and that is what she is going to get tonight!
Enjoy your Saturday! Stay warm! xo!
