A Love Affair

I think I've made it pretty clear that we're pretty big fans of Culver's.

"Big" might not be a sufficient adjective.  Let's try... ginormous.  Humongous.  XXL.

You get the picture.  We enjoy it.  A lot.

We love the atmosphere.  Family friendly and comfortable.
We love the service and quality.  Better-than-fast-food served just as quickly.
We love the food.  Butterburgers, tenderloins, salads, cheese sandwiches, fries, chicken tenders.  And the custard....  ooooooooo the custard!

Pretty sure that face says it all.

We've eaten at Culver's on numerous occasions.  Typically, we go to celebrate a birthday.

Drew's 3rd birthday.

My 31st.

 Brad's 35th.

Reed's 3rd.

We've gone to Culver's to celebrate the first day of school...

 {first day of preschool, 2011}

...and the last day of school.

I've taken Drew to Culver's as a special "Just Mom & Me" treat.

{November 2011}

And we've used Culver's as a "you-did-great-get-well-soon" post-surgery treat.

And then sometimes we eat at Culver's...

...on vacation
{Escanaba, MI, June 2012} a pit stop on a very long drive
{somewhere in Indiana, or Illinois, on our way to Grandma's house for Christmas, December 2012} the fall, because the Pumpkin Spice Shakes are soooooooo good

 ...because the coupons expire today
{December 2011}

 ...when we're hungry.
{February 2011}

And let's not forget that time when we ate at the World's Largest Culver's, which, of course, will become a regular rest stop on our frequent trips back to Minnesota.  How convenient!

{December 2012}

 It's so exciting you'll either sit on the table or faint in your seat.

The only time Culver's has ever disappointed me is when Brad is in the vicinity of one, without me, chooses to eat there...
...and has the nerve to text me a picture.

You can imagine our dismay, then, when we first came to Midland to discover that there isn't a Culver's here in town.  Such a disappointment.  There is one 25 minutes south in Saginaw, and there's one 35 minutes west in Mt. Pleasant.  But with all the things Midland has to offer, Culver's isn't one of them.  So, needless to say, our frequent meals there haven't been quite as frequent during the past year.  Of course, when the need has arisen for us to have to go to Saginaw, you can bet a quick stop at Culver's is always scheduled.  And we may have made a special trip or two just to go to Culver's (hey, it's my birthday, I can do what I want!).  But without one in town, our overall dining experiences haven't been the same.

Until last November.  You can just picture our excitement and joy when we read in the local news that Culver's was coming to Midland!!!!

Construction began in April and this past Monday was their Grand Opening.

Umm.  Yeah.  We were there.  Duh.

Some of our friends here in town have enjoyed the dining pleasure that Culvers offers, but many have not.  Therefore, we feel it our obligation, and gift to them really, to introduce them.  

 {The two ladies on the right are from Wisconsin and are quite familiar with Culver's.  The other two friends, not so much.  Lunch on Monday was awesome!}

Yesterday was the ribbon cutting ceremony.  CEO Craig Culver himself was in town.  We did not go.  Yes, we love Culver's.  No, we are not crazy.

Yes.  Yes.  Yes.

Welcome to Midland, Culver's!

We are happy you're here!
