Rate #1 on tripadvisor.com and has received rave reviews.
(Motown Historical Museum)
This was once the headquarters for Motown Records and Tamla Records. Many artists recorded here...Stevie Wonder, The Supremes and the Temptations are among them. The museum features album covers, costumes, gold records, and photos related to the history of Motown and it's founder Berry Gordy.
I've never been to or stayed in any of these Hotels, I am going based on ratings from the sites I located them on.
1. Greektown Casino Hotel
One of the top rated Hotels in Detroit. If you love a little gambling this would be a great trip for you and your friends. Has more than 10,000 square feet of gambling space with more than 2,600 slots, 60 table games and the largest Poker Room in the city of Detroit. You can dine at the Bistro 555, or if you are a sports fan you can watch the game at Shotz Sports Bar, located in the hotel lobby. It also has an International Buffet for those who love a little bit of everything. Staying here is not cheap however, it'll be about $113-$212 a night, although considering what it has to offer that's not too shabby. Plus if you are a good gambler you might be able to win it all back.
2. The Westin Detroit Metropolitan Airport
Has 404 rooms and is located in the world class Midfield Terminal. Has a ballroom, business center, heated pool, whirlpool, glass-enclosed elevators, in room safes, and high speed Internet access.
$152-$284 a night.
3. The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit
Known as Detroits Crown Jewel. It is an Italian Renaissance style hotel that was originally built in 1924 by the Book brothers, but just under-went a $200 million restoration. It features a work out facility with indoor heated pool, 455 guestrooms including 35 suites. Go here to read more.
Get ready to spend lots of dough, it is $220-$350 a night.
Looking for something more budget friendly. There is a Comfort Inn located in the Downtown Detroit area, as well as a Holiday Inn Express and Suites also in the Downtown area.

It was a long time ago, I was in the fifth grade visiting my best friend who had moved from Dayton, the year before. I don't remember much of it, but I do remember it being a lot of fun and we did get to go to Cedar Point which is actually in Sandusky, Ohio, but it was a blast. It was kind of sad at the same time, because that was the last time I saw her. Thanks to Facebook we recently got back in touch with each other. She is someone I have never forgotten about after all these years. So, it was one of my favorite trips, and one that I will remember for the rest of my life.
Well, I really tried my best yesterday, I just really didn't have a whole lot to say. Love is probably the most difficult subject from my list. I have absolutely no clue about all that dating stuff. So, I am ready to move on. What's next on my list? Traveling. That is what todays theme is all about, part of it at least. I will be talking about and showing you all of the places I would love to visit, as well as places I have been that I thought you might want to go to, and I will also be talking about other travel related stuff such as things to see and do, where to stay, shop, and eat, as well as posts on stylish luggage to take with you, what to wear, and packing...yuck!

Okay so Prince William is certainly handsome, Kate Middleton is one lucky girl, no doubt. However, I myself prefer Prince Harry. I know, I know he's kind of a bad boy and realistically going for a guy like that is not going to get me anywhere near the alter anytime soon. He does have some great qualities though that I would love for the man of my dreams to have.
For starters he's absolutely adorable, I love that playful mischief look in his eyes. I think he seems to be very honest about who he is and honesty is the best policy in my book. At least with someone like that I would know what I was getting into. There really are no red flags, what you see is what you get, that's the vibe I get from him at least. I love his wholesome image mixed with his edginess.
His freckles drive me crazy and I love the way he dresses. He always looks presentable and cleancut even when he is just in casual attire. He seems fun and adventerous, I love to laugh and be entertained, that is the key to my heart. Oh and he's British...I have a thing for British, Irish, and Australian men and their sexy accents.
He is beautiful!
I just don't have a lot to say about this subject, you will mostly be seeing pictures that go along with this theme. When it comes to dating and relationships I am pretty clueless, I haven't had the greatest luck with men. I've dated some jerks, but I have also dated some nice guys. It's not always them, I am not ashamed to admit, I think a lot of it does have to do with me. The reason is because I am pretty insecure about it, I have a hard time finding common interests, and I tend to be a little shy when it comes to having conversations.
My communication skills aren't that great. There are things I am working on. I'm exploring and discovering new interests so that I will have more knowledge and more to talk about other than fashion, shopping, partying it up with my friends, and celebrities. This is an area I need lots of help in, I know what I need to work on, finally...I get it.
I'm 33 years young, I still have plenty of time to find the right guy for me. I know that one day my prince will come and I will get my happily ever after.
This morning I am going to be moving onto my next thing from my list which is love and relationships, not sure if that will last all day or not, just going with the flow on this subject. Before I get to posting I want to take a minute to thank you all for your feedback yesterday. I had a hard time with yesterdays theme, it made me hungry all day, apparently I gave you all the munchies as well. I was hoping to get to cool my dish tonight, unfortunately, getting to the store is not an option today, so that's not going to work out as planned. However, I will be in the kitchen tomorrow evening, I will be sure to take lots of pictures and let you all know how it turns out this weekend. Sooo, anyway let's get started with Thursdays edition.

I can eat popcorn anytime, and I mean the entire bowl or bag. I prefer just regular old popcorn with lots of salt and extra butter, but I do love trying other kinds as well. If you are looking for a new twist, here are some ideas you might like.
This is popcorn made from scratch. Apparently, according to this blogger, microwave popcorn is not that good for you...really? Most people who love and eat popcorn aren't all that worried about whether it's good for them or not. I know I'm not. That's just me though.
