thanks for encouragement after my terrible trip! I'm feeling much better about it now that I'm home, so I wanted to share the few bright spots.
One of my favorite things about Grand Rapids is that one of my dearest friends lives there. On my lunch and afternoon breaks during the 10-hour days Cait and I met up for brunch, lattes and shopping.
First stop was Marie Catribs. trendy, tiny, and yum--all natural fresh ingredients.
They served my omelette in a puff pastry!
(the seasoned potatoes were delish)
The next day we stopped for quick bite at Red Ball Jet. Sangria, crab cake slider and a margherita pizza.
in addition to that we had fun shopping (I scored an adorable red jacket I'll share next week), sipping some MI cranberry wine, playing Just Dance on the wii and chatting. I'm so thankful I got to spend a little time with Cait during this trip!
