Happy December everyone! Time to get into the Christmas spirit by blasting Trans Siberian Orchestra’s Carol of the Bells and assemble the artificial tree!
My brother and I went to Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth back in October for our bi-yearly buying o’the ornaments and had a really nice time. 🙂 No one else could make the trip with us so the only other participant was Domo who chilled in the back seat during our outing.
It’s an hour and 45 minute drive away from our hometown and as it is mostly expressway it can be quite boring. Tree tree tree tree tree ooo… bush! We didn’t see any wildlife on our trek upstate, however the trees were quite lovely at that time.
Before we reached our destination we stopped at Halo Burger…
They are one of the only burger joints that we know of that offer burgers with olives and that is always a yummy must. 😉
A patron of the establishment noticed my brother and I snapping pictures of each other and offered to take a picture of us together. 🙂
No too long after, we arrived at Bronners. I was busy annoying my brother at the time and missed out on the opportunity to capture a shot of the whole building. XD
Once inside I saw this sign and just couldn’t resist. >:}
I know that people come to visit Bronner’s from all over the world but I didn’t feel comfortable with snapping pictures… however I did get a pic of two interesting items.
We had a lot of fun exploring the store and bought a variety of ornaments.
Here is my Bronner ornament collection:
Neon Pink Ornaments! XD
I was reminded of Peter Pan with this next ornament….
So magical… *o*
Sparkly sushi platter :3 It is actually quite heavy. o.o;
and my total fave – Merry Christmas (Meri Kurisumasu) in Katakana. :>
Afterwards we strolled around town and visited a number of shops such as the General Store, Zender’s Gift Shop, the Taffy shop and… the Cheese Haus.
Inside we sampled various cheese products and saw a rather *cough* interesting food item…
Tired but happy, Bob and I packed up our heels and made the journey home. We really enjoyed the trip and look forward to our next Bronner’s outing in 2015!
