I spent Saturday in Royal Oak. It was a fabulous day and I always wonder why I don't venture out there more--it's not that far from me. If you're in the metro Detroit area, there are a couple places I highly recommend. 
First of all, go eat at what crepe. Everything we ordered was delicious. I was full all day. 
Then, go check out Lost and Found Vintage...because it is so much fun, you guys. I bought the cutest handkerchief in the world. Check it out. 
HOW AWESOME IS THAT? I laughed out loud, and that's a pretty good sign that something has to come home with me. (That's how it goes with boys sometimes, too, AM I RIGHT LADIES? Just kidding, gross.)

If I ever go on another date, I assure you this will be in my purse.

Brownie Points

You probably often wonder about my love life. (Don't pretend you don't, that's just sad.) 

Well, it's fabulous. Let me highlight some of the impressive things men around me have done recently. This post could be titled: Tips and Tricks for Winning Bitter Amanda's Heart. 

1. I haven't heard from you in months? Awesome, go ahead and call me at midnight on a Friday because you feel like hanging out! This works best if you've shamelessly flirted with me for months before revealing your girlfriend. 
2. Thanks for buying me drinks at the bar until I was taken home by my friends. Even though I kept ordering water. That's definitely a sign that I want you to stick your hand up the back of my shirt. And then, after I shut that down, please tell me about your wife and children. 
3. Cool. Cool cool cool, I'd love to hear about your new girlfriend and also can you fill me in on the details of doing romantic things for her? Because after all that flirting and dancing and texting we did, THAT is definitely what I want to hear. 
4. SWEET, I love getting shot down and then pointedly ignored. 
5. Really, ex? Another shot at my dating life? Thanks. I hadn't yet realized that it's pretty abysmal. 

LIVING THE DREAM, readers. Living the dream.
