This past weekend we traveled to Ann Arbor so my husband could go pheasant hunting with one of his good friends. While they were out hunting, I decided to do some photo shoots in my favorite Ann Arbor locations, which ended up being some of the coldest photo shoots I’ve ever done. We all met up afterwards to thaw ourselves with some beer and darts at Wolverine Brewing (I had an excellent coffee stout).
The day we left we had Zingerman’s for lunch, which made me happy. If you’ve never tried Zingerman’s, I can’t recommend them enough. They’re a super high quality deli nestled in the heart of Ann Arbor. Above is my lunch: #30, The Special.
This week has been largely uneventful–a common occurence in January when the temperatures are low. I’m happy to report that my new down coat is just as warm as I’d hoped–the insane cold has hardly bothered me.
My husband and I randomly ended up having a Jackie Chan movie marathon for the last few nights. We’ve watched Rumble in the Bronx, Project A, and Supercop (listed in the order I enjoyed them). I have a feeling a Rush Hour viewing is coming up in our near future.
Have a great weekend and stay warm!
