2011 Christmas~

本來我們打算2011年的聖誕節假期哪裡也不去的。結果感恩節過完大姊問我們要不要去密西根,當天晚上跟山姆大叔討論一下,隔天機票就馬上訂下去了,只因他說的一句話,"你有多少機會能和你姊跟你妹一起過聖誕節?"

聖誕節那天是在Eliza的新家過的,他們還特別搭起聖誕樹,底下堆滿了禮物~ 大家也不知在ㄍㄧㄥ甚麼,硬是快到中午才拆禮物,害我一大早起來等好久喔...。這是我第一次見到馬克先生,來之前為他的禮物煩惱許久,還好有姊給了我一點提示,買了幾條五彩繽紛的領帶給他。姊的是一條Swarovski的水晶項鍊,我自己都想要一條~~ 怡辰和Eliza收到的禮物最多,但其實應該大都是給Baby的啦!!姊做的小帽小鞋超可愛的,我則做了幾條被子,當然是長頸鹿圖案的囉~~ 我們則收到好多新衣服,山姆大叔在密西根那幾天幾乎天天穿新衣服,早知道根本不用帶衣服去啦~~

因為天氣冷,這整個聖誕假期沒去太多地方,但有出門就一定是去吃東西~~ 我發現密西根很多餐廳都相當標榜他們是使用有機或是當地的食材。譬如這家在Ann Arbor相當有明的Zingerman’s,不但有自己的農場、牧場,還有自己的麵包工廠。他們也從一家小小的三明治店做到有牛排館、承辦酒席、甚至網購。這家的三明治種類實在有夠多的,我們光是研究menu就研究了半天,每樣東西看起來都好好吃喔~~

然後是這家附屬在一間古老旅館裡的Weber’s,因為很有歷史,內裝相當的有味道。我們是去吃早餐buffet,種類超多,你能想到的美式早餐應該都有。那現做的小鬆餅真的超好吃~~~~重點是,一個人$10美金有找,真是物超所值!!!我們在Grand Rapids也去了幾家好吃的餐廳,我覺得密西根的餐廳普遍來說都相當不錯呢!!

底特律沒甚麼特別的景點,但是大家來到這裡一定都會來坐坐他們的捷運。並不是這裡的捷運有甚麼特別,說實在的坐一圈也不過十幾分鐘,但在這一圈中可以深深的體驗到底特律的落寞與蕭條,其實這裡有許多很有特色的建築,但仔細一看幾乎每棟建築物都是空屋,處處可見封了木板的窗戶。

下了捷運回到只是一條街的Greek Town,不小心走進一間點心店,當我們還在欣賞玻璃櫃中各式各樣的甜點時,山姆大叔已經很自動的點了他的下午茶了,ㄟㄟㄟ,那希臘點心是不錯吃,但演成這樣太超過了喔~~

這次來到密西根還有另一件大事,就是幫姊姊挑婚紗~~ 超開心的耶!!人瘦穿甚麼都好看,反而更難以抉擇啊...

我們還去看了要辦婚禮的教堂和場地,感覺很讚喔~~

我們飛回來的那天剛好是1/1,也是我們的結婚紀念日,今年總算沒忘記了~ 上飛機前Eliza還幫我們準備了愛心便當,超感動的!!還好有這個便當不然真得餓死了!!我們到洛杉磯轉機時,因為聖地牙哥起大霧整個機場關閉飛機不飛,航空公司便改用巴士把大家載到聖地牙哥,但真是一團亂,我們在路邊等了一個多小時才擠上巴士,一路上真的都是濃霧,到家時都已經半夜一點半了,要知道那可是東岸時間的四點半,因為一直戴著隱形眼鏡,我的眼睛都累到快掉出來了...。不過這次真的玩得很開心,能和家人聚在一起,都是一件幸福的事~~

  1. You had a great time in Michigan! I only met your older sister once-- is it 10 years ago? she didn't change much since then. She looks beautiful in wedding gown (I like the one she had veil on). Did she decide which one?


    We went to Detroit last year-- and we stayed at the hotel in your photo!

  2. Dear Tina,
    Has it been 10 years since we met in SF?! My sister has not decide on the dress yet. She couldn't justify she have to spend that much money on a dress. She said she would even wear someone's old dress if anyone is welling to lend her their wedding dress!!! LOL

    Did you stayed in the Greek Town Casino? I can't imagine walking on the streets downtown, especially at night. Just feel creepy....

  4. I totally agree with your sister... I spent very little $$ and time on mine but sometimes I feel I have missed something. On top of that, people really will treat her like a princess on her wedding day-- she wants to look better than great!! Too bad we are so far away or she really can borrow mine... (size 2).

  5. Dear純,是啊!
    明年我們家喜事連連呢~~~ 我們三個有這麼像嗎? ^^

    Dear Tina,
    Your dress size is right, but she will have to shorten it a lot since she is quite petite~ That is another thing we couldn't understand about wedding dresses, why do they always make them too long or too large, and we have to pay another $200 for alteration?! Just doesn't seem right!!
