One of my favorite things about Twitter: sometimes, if you're vocal, a big company will listen to you. About a month ago, Dominique over at Midwest Guest, started a Twitter conversation about the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile, citing a great post she wrote awhile back about it. Pretty soon there was a … Continue Reading..
My in-laws live on a farm that has been in the family for more than 100 years. They raise cattle for beef and grow food on the land to feed them. Every time we visit in the summer, I like to check out the cows. I don’t care what my hubby says – they are so cute. They currently have a little … Continue Reading..
When I received this week's VlogTalk prompt list, it wasn't hard to choose which one I was going to do. I take advantage of every opportunity possible to get on my soapbox and rant about things that irk me. There's one thing that stands above the rest: lazy people. Specifically those who press … Continue Reading..
I am posting this a day early because I will be participating in VlogTalk tomorrow. Three years ago tomorrow, I married the most wonderful man. He laughs at my stupid jokes.

I’ve … Continue Reading..
It has been a week of firsts at the Weber household. First time to touch balloons... First time to go in our sweet new $10 kiddie pool… First time to go to the Detroit Zoo… And fall asleep at the Detroit Zoo... It’s a miracle how fast little ones grow. Little K is 8 months old now, … Continue Reading..
For this week's VlogTalk, I am also linking up with a Project Marriage Challenge with Life Without Pink and Mommyfriend. Since my husband and I will celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary next week, I decided the prompt to discuss how we met would be most appropriate this week. Check out my video … Continue Reading..
I was sharing Friday’s post about Michigan snacks on Twitter like a good little social media nerd, when I got an uber-delish proposition to try a new Michigan snack – Ethel’s Edibles. As I mentioned in the post, I love supporting all things local, so of course I took owner Jill Bommarito up on … Continue Reading..
There are oodles of amazingly tasty products here in Michigan. As a huge supporter of buying local when possible, I'm always looking for a tasty treat that I feel good about purchasing. Although it was a very hard list to narrow down, here are 5 of my favorite treats from my home … Continue Reading..
Every kid has that recipe that they go gaga over. Tex Mex dip was my sweet spot growing up. My mom always stocked our cupboards with healthy, boring stuff and I always had the healthiest lunch at the table in elementary school.
