Today is my 27th birthday. To celebrate, I will be having sushi and cocktails later today. But, in reflection of my 27 years on the planet, I’ve decided to compile a list of some of the things I have learned thus far on my aging journey. Please note I have A LOT of learning left to do. 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. This is the worst fate ever to a 10 year old because nobody ever … Continue Reading..
My happy place is in Northern Michigan. Where water can be found everywhere, and looks beautiful and peaceful, despite cold weather. And people have time for breakfast at one-of-a-kind places where the locals greet you with kindness. (But if you don’t finish your breakfast, you have to wear a … Continue Reading..
One of my life goals is to write a children’s book, so when I met children’s author Jim Miller on Twitter a few years back, I knew I wanted to get to know him better. Fast-forward some months…my company at the time was doing some hiring and he just so happened to be looking. His interview was our … Continue Reading..
Love this magnet from Etsy! Just $4 here. Everyone loves the blue box on occasion, and it’s something almost everyone has in the cupboard at all times. While it’s fun to appeal to kids (and what kid doesn't love mac n' cheese?), us adults have to find ways to have fun with our share, too. Try these … Continue Reading..
1. Don’t be the neighbor with five of those “gazing balls” on your property. They really aren’t cool, and what the heck do they do exactly? One is plenty. 2. Don’t, under any circumstance, wear socks with sandals. It’s never OK. 3. If you’re a younger male, don’t ever wear jean shorts. … Continue Reading..
Confession: I don't know much about sports. I don't follow them. And, I know this is probably the #1 male turn-off in the world, but I don't really like them. But, I try to understand the allure. However, I do LOVE Detroit sports (well, except our poor Lions. I just hate football altogether, but … Continue Reading..

Thankfully, I'm only seven+ months into this parenting thing, so I haven't made any HUGE mistakes [yet!]. In the video below, I discuss some of my rookie mom mistakes including troubles with bottle … Continue Reading..
