Since becoming parents, my hubby and I have experienced how hard it can be to just get up and go like we used to. Not having family super close makes it hard to squeeze in a date night (and a babysitter costs too much!), so when the hubby's mom offered to take Little K for two nights this past … Continue Reading..
I love quotes – especially the ones you read and go “Man! That’s exactly how I feel.” Or ones that bring a tear to your eye because it says something you can identify with. There are hundreds I love, but I’ve chosen 5 I think are great words of wisdom to live by. In no particular order... That … Continue Reading..
Even though my little 10-month old munchkin can't verbally tell me things, she teaches me something about myself each day. She's my sidekick and already my best friend. I can't wait to learn more valuable (and maybe not-so-valuable!) lessons from her down the road. Here are 10 lessons she has shown … 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..
Today I’m combining two prompts floating ‘round the internetz this week. From the fabulous ladies at A Belle, A Bean and a Chicago Dog and Four Plus An Angel for the #SummerBlogSocial: If a friend approached you and said “I want to start a blog. Can you give me a list of helpful tips?” What … Continue Reading..
I had the honor of going to my dear friend Lyndsey’s wedding this past weekend. She had a completely unconventional, carnival-themed outdoor wedding. Adding to the uniqueness was the format of her ceremony, which was composed of several readings. One in particular got to me (I rarely make it through … Continue Reading..
I'm pretty cool with putting myself out there...but this week, I'm doing it at an entirely new level. I'm singing! Ahhh! I'm not a fan of singing solos (I'm an alto, therefore it's a challenge for me to sing the melody), but I figured what the hey! For the sake of entertainment, I'm playing along … Continue Reading..
One of my hot button issues is education. I believe it’s the key to our future. In fact, I personally believe that it is the key to Detroit’s turnaround. So when I got word about a program doing great things to help our nation's classrooms, I jumped at the chance to discuss it with all of … Continue Reading..
