Ain't No Party Like the West Coast Party... Except a Midwest Party

Hottie works for Trader Joe's (yes, I know, you, "LOVE Trader Joe's!" Everyone says that. haha) anyway... each year TJ's throws an awesome party for their managers. This is our first year of attending the event in a new region. In the past we went to some swanky hotel in Orange County and between the two of us we'd know just about every person there (for 8 years I was a sign artist for TJ's). We would eat the most delicious meal,  drink far too much, and dance the night away. This year was much of the same. The only difference being that we only knew one other couple out of around 100 people....

and the location. This location was all kinds of epic. It was held at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. (Yes, TJ's paid for us to fly there, and put us up in a hotel for the night... we LOVE Trader Joe's too!) We ate our fancy schmancy dinner right in the middle of the museum. We busted out our best dance moves under a suspended airplane. We didn't manage to drink too much because there were just too many cool things to look at. Hottie may have had three deserts. These Midwesterners know whats up.

Here's some quick photos from our experience...

i live by the photo booth rule: you see one, you use it. no exceptions. :)

tiny room in the attic of an old colonial house on the hotel property. the stairs were in the way of the door, and the door to the room opened right into the bed. i could not stop laughing about this... and the fact that hottie tripped over the stair as we first went in.

 inside the museum. glamour and beauty at every turn....

dance floor under a suspended airplane. we packed the place once the slow jams stopped.

relentless drooling over my dream car....

So that pretty much covers it! We were gone for a mere 24 hours, but had such a great (kidless!) time. Now on to tackle this amazing box of AC goodies that arrived just as I was pulling away for the airport!

  1. Wow! That is super cool of TJ's. I worked at Target and also get the same "Oh I LOVE..." comments. I always respond with a "thanks!" like I have anything to do with how cool Target is, lol.

    Glad you guys had a great time!
