It’s Mike and me! Dressed up for a night on the town. I love him.
And here we are in front of Cleveland Browns Stadium.
So what we did:
Friday, I gave Mike his golf clubs, and then we went out to eat at Applebee’s. Then we rented a movie, and really just enjoyed each other.
Saturday morning, I made him bacon and pancakes and we drank a pot of coffee before heading off to Cleveland. When we got there, we saw an Omnimax movie at the Great Lakes Science Center called Tornado Alley–narrated by none other than BILL PAXTON! You know I love Twister… PS, Omnimax means it’s a movie on a dome ceiling–and it is INTENSE.
Then we checked into our hotel, got all dressed up and went out on the town. We hit up Flannery’s Pub, The Chocolate Bar (WHERE I HAD THE BEST FREAKIN’ MARTINI I HAVE EVER HAD), Fat Fish Blue, and we wandered around Cleveland. It was incredible, just walking through Tower City and the Arcade. We were going to eat at Chinato’s, but we looked at each other, smiled, and went and got pulled pork and cajun chicken. 🙂 Very us. We’ll save Chinato’s for a day when we have nothing to do and we aren’t bursting with love. And below are some of our adventures:
Sunday, my parents came to bring me my retirement folder for work (I gave it to my mother, because somehow, reading it meant giving up my youth…although now I have money going into an IRA…weird.). We went to the mall and just spent time with them. And I walked away from a mighty cute Fossil purse.
I think Mike’s probably annoyed with me telling him how lucky I am to have him. He truly made this an incredible weekend. I felt safe (which is odd for me in a city) and I felt happy. Not that there was ever any question that Mike Baker is my favorite person, but this weekend confirms it.
I hope I never know a day without his love.
