I arrived home a couple hours ago from a lovely weekend away with a friend. We went to Frankenmuth, Michigan. Frankenmuth, is known as Little Bavaria, with the most authentic Bavarian architecture in America. It's famous for it's food, especially Zehnder's Chicken dinners and Bronner's Christmas Wonderland. We apparently picked a good time to go, the weather was perfect, cold but no wind so it didn't feel very cold, dressing properly was the secret. The hotel was clean and close to everything and there was a Snowfest festival going on all weekend. There was some beautiful snow and ice scuptures displayed throughout the entire town. We did some shopping and more shopping, found a quilting shop (of course), and I purchased some more fabric for my Indian Orange Peel quilt. We had some delicious dinners, melt in the mouth prime rib and one of Zehnders Chicken entrees.
I also bought myself a gift, do you want to see her? She is called "Sew Angel" isn't she beautiful?
It was a bit more than I was planning on spending, but I'm worth don't you think. Can't you tell that I am trying to convince myself and you that it was OK to spend these $$$'s on something so frivolous.
What do you think?
Hope you all had a good weekend.
