My husband is a major sports nut, and always has been. Growing up he earned a scholarship for baseball, in college he became an avid MSU fan (basketball and football), and now that he's an adult, there's not many games he misses on the radio, TV, in the news, or when he's got time, in person.
The man is a walking sports statistic machine too. I never doubt how much knowledge the human mind can hold when he starts talking to one of his friends about sports.
Right now brackets are big in the house.
Draft night for the Fantasy Baseball was last night, in a city that's quite the hike from our house, so we decided to make a night of it. We dropped my husband off at the drafting site, and off we went to explore the hotel, the pool, and then to take in our first ever IMAX movie (we finally saw the new Oz movie).
And then we finished up with silly pictures in a photo booth for good measure.
This morning we're meeting up for breakfast with friends that live this a'way, and then we'll be headed home.
The hotel was free (from points we've accumulated) and it was nice to get a break from cooking, cleaning, and "things to do." A short but sweet mini vaca, juuuuust away from home.
Quite honestly, I don't think we've ever done such a thing, and we probably won't again any time soon, but it really was refreshing.
Do you ever mini-vaca close to home?
