Fall in Michigan

Last weekend I went home to Michigan for the weekend. It was a jam-packed weekend full of fun, Fall activities. On Saturday my mom and I spent the morning together and Kevin hung out with my dad. We had lunch at one of my fav spots, Olga’s which made me extremely happy. Then we headed to Ann Arbor for the Michigan v. Penn State football game. We went to my brother’s place in Ann Arbor to tailgate. My mom and I made one of our special cocktails with vodka, Corona, raspberry lemonade, and fresh strawberries. There was also a TON of food: fresh veggies & dip, taco dip with chips, pasta salad, fruit salad, and my dad grilled hot dogs and burgers (veggie for me!) on the grill.

We had a good time eating, drinking, and catching up with my brother and his housemates before we walked to The Big House for the game. This game was extra special because it was a night game making it the third night game ever played in the Michigan Stadium. The halftime show was super cool. What was even better was that we actually won.
On Sunday morning we went to the movies to see Gone Girl. I read the book so I already knew the story, but it was funny hearing by boyfriend’s comments about how crazy Amy is as the story unfolded. My whole family enjoyed the movie. I thought it was really good too which I was surprised about because I usually never like film adaptations as much. Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck both did amazing acting jobs in the film.

After the movie, my brother met up with us and we all went to Spicer’s Cider Mill. It was a really nice day so it was really crowded, but we still had fun. My mom and I did a little wine tasting, we had fresh doughnuts and cider, and I got a caramel apple to go. Our flight back to NYC was Sunday evening, so we chilled at home for the last few hours and watched a scary movie on TV (Freddy vs. Jason) and ordered in Jet’s pizza which I love for some reason.

I enjoy coming home to visit my family and I like coming home in the Fall best since Michigan is so pretty that time of the year.
