My hubby left the comfort of his first job last week. After spending almost 5 years in one place, he was ready to move on. It will be a step forward, yet this step isn’t about a promotion. It’s about our quality of life. He’s an accountant (no, he does not do taxes!), so with this position, he … Continue Reading..
I love exploring new places...especially beautiful little places that don't cost a dime to get into. One such place I discovered thanks to my mom last week was Heavenly Scent Herb Farm in Fenton, Mich. We had fun roaming the gardens and taking photos. Here are some of my favorite shots from the … Continue Reading..

Today for VlogTalk, I'm giving you a tour of my car. Doesn't that sound exciting?! Well, it is. And be sure to stay until the end so you can see what my real dream car is... What's your dream car? Or, shall I say practical dream car? Want to vlog?! Give it a shot and link up on the … Continue Reading..
It's my hubby's b-day! Happy b-day to my love and best friend! Can you believe he does not like cake?! Or sweets in general (blasphemy, I know). He's a farm boy, so he likes meat. And cheese. Every year I struggle with what to make him, because I feel it is my wifely duties to do something … Continue Reading..
Today I'm over at Spread A Little Thin talking about some of the baby battles I endured during my firsts days as a brand new mom. Thanks to fellow Michigander (and hilarious blogger) Amy for letting me speak my mind for her cool War Story series! Readers: I will not be posting every day … Continue Reading..
I get a lot of searches guided to my blog looking for a girls day out around Detroit. This post is an attempt to fill that void since it seems like a lot of ladies are looking for fun things to do! Let’s face it, ladies…sometimes there are just some things the men in our lives don’t want to do. … Continue Reading..
