The Grand Old Party had a Grand Old Weekend

B is gone to Mackina*c Island (pronounced Mack-In-Aw) for the 2009 Mackina*c Republican Leadership Conference. Mackina*c is know for being a place where one steps back in time (how I wish it transported us back to the Regan administration these days!). There are no cars allowed on the island- only horse and buggies! It is also famous for fudge, which I love! B plans to bring me some if he knows what's good for him !

This weekend is a really big deal for Michigan G0P politics. Two years ago when B went, he met most of the Republican*s running for President in 2008. It sounded like loads of fun. Maybe I'll go with him in two years.

Well, B is working (and playing) hard this weekend, I'll just be working on the following: cleaning my house (I love to do this while he is away because it stays cleaner longer!), finalizing flowers for the wedding, getting my hair colored, finalizing wedding music, dropping all the information for the wedding off at the church, having some items monogrammed for attendant gifts, wrapping attendant gifts, tanning (I know, not healthy, but did you see that pic of me from the Bachelorette party? Albino much?), making pumpkin soup, being fitted for a modeling gig, starting the seating chart, and getting the awesome Rehearsal Dinner invitations I bought printed and mailed! Yes, I'm sorry G0P, but I have my priorities! Lol!

I actually think its good that he is going to be out of dodge this weekend. I hope to get most of that list done!

I will leave you with this:*Sorry for my creative spelling, I just don't really want any searches related to this weekend leading to my blog.*

How fun for B and will keep my fingers crossed that you get to go soon too! Kick some rear this weekend- you'll feel like you've got a ton of control over your life once you've taken it all on!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Macinac!
My parents went there for their honeymoon, and we went for a family vacay a few years ago.
I love how the whole island smells like delicious fudge.
I have heard it has lost some charm since they started letting segways on. But still amazing.
I always wanted to have my wedding reception at The Grand (world's longest outdoor porch!!!
Hope you get to go next time. Or take a trip during the Lilac Festival :)

If you get a chance to go to a GOP convention, you definitely should! This last one was my first and hopefully not my last. :) I had a blast! Congrats on the upcoming wedding btw! :)
