Hi Sonya,

It looks like I was pretty close by this weekend.  I was on a bus shopping/casino trip to Soaring Eagle with 52 other women.  It was lots of fun.  Stopped at Birch Run on Friday and hit Midland Mall on Sat.  On the way home we stopped at Birchwood Mall in Port Huron before we crossed back over the border.

The casino was lovely but very smokey.  What a shame that people can smoke in there.  It was the only downfall for a great Michigan weekend.

Hi Jenny!  Thanks for checking out my blog.  You were right in my backyard this weekend!  I am glad you had fun over here....Midland Mall is small but very nice.  The casino is fun and yes very smoking not allowed at casino's in Candada?  If so, that would make for a much better time for the non-smokers of the world like us wouldn't it?
