Belle Isle--Hidden Treasure

Soooo, today Rebecca and I sauntered to Belle Isle to check it out. My Aunt told me that it would be a great place for my to take pics, and I was curious and I have never been there. I wish I could have gone back when the wonderful city of Detroit actually kept it up. It is almost like an old, abandoned building--beautiful, yet sad because nobody is taking care of it. Rebecca and I walked around and took pics for a long while, and I fell in love with the area. Click here to see my pics. My fav is the one I posted with this entry. Afterwards, Rebecca took me to this awesome spot in Royal Oak for Mexican food and I had awesome cajun tuna fajitas. umm, they were totally incredible and I cant wait to go back. Wow.

Came home and Kurt got my treadmill back out. We were storing it as we want to take it into the basement to what will be the "workout room", but we need another guy to get it down there. Brought it into the computer room near the TV and I started my workouts again. Did 2.25 Miles, as well as about 150 situps, about 30 pushups and some other various things. It felt really good. I am going to try really hard to keep up on it, but it's hard when I don't get home most nights until after 9 p.m.

Had a great day on Saturday. First, I had an appointment at a laser eye surgery place in Monroe. They said I would be a great candidate, but I think I kinda want to wait until after I take the bar. It would just figure that I would have complications which would hinder my studies.......After that, I had a pedicure to prepare for my Vegas trip next week (leaving on Friday, I don't think I blogged about that yet either). Then, I stopped at a pet store and bought the pugs some new food, as well as new collars for Vito and Oscar and some new treats and toys. Oscar's new collar is orange and Vito's is black. They look so handsome. I was driving around after that and decided I was going to get my first manicure. For the past two weeks, I have LEFT my nails alone. Not torn them once. And, I am actually starting to have little nails appear! I know, it's a miracle, but it is happening. So, I went into this adorable little hole in the wall place where they barely spoke English, and got my first manicure. Loved the place, and my nails actually look acceptable! Maybe even good! I was so pleased. Had dinner with Kurt that night. Great day and night.

Back to Vegas, we booked a trip! I can't freaking wait to leave. And even better (if anything can be better than a little get away), I am seeing FREAKING Billy Joel while I am there! I bought tickets and am beyond excited. It is seriously my dream concert to see Billy Joel live by himself (saw him once with Elton John). I don't know what I am more excited about....Vegas or the concert. I am excited to go hiking and take some pics at the canyon.

Congrats on your nails. I don't remember you ever having nails of your own. Have a great time in Vegas! I can't wait to see the pics from your hike.
