Memorial Day Weekend 2017

Ahh, I love a good three day weekend. We started our Saturday out with a mini road trip to Lambertville, MI. First brunch at Bedford Coney Island definitely hit the spot! I ordered this breakfast scramble covered in sausage gravy, with a side of seeded rye toast, and coffee, of course. Next we went to … Continue reading

It’s been a good while since I’ve posted any life updates on here so I thought I’d pop in to share some fun summer moments we’ve been having! Father’s Day – I bought the huz and baby J matching shirts: Player 1 and Player 2 (huz is a big gamer!) We also went out for … Continue reading

Sweetest Day 2014 brought the huz and I to Milan, Michigan to complete a corn maze. (We didn’t even realize it was Sweetest Day until after the fact, so I guess that worked out well?) Talladay Farms offers two traditional corn mazes as well as a haunted corn maze. Today we took part in the … Continue reading

Photo of the Week-Muskegon State Park

Michigan is home to so many gorgeous beaches. Muskegon State Park is no exception. In the summer of 2009, the huz and I spent a few warm summer days in Muskegon. Usually when we visit, we spend most of our time at the busy Pere Marquette Park which often has lots of big Lake Michigan … Continue reading

A Wine Lover’s Weekend at Thunder Bay Resort

It is no secret that one of my favorite aspects of traveling is trying new foods and drinks. (Evidence: here.) This past Fourth of July weekend was no exception. The huz and I traveled to Michigan’s northeastern Lower Peninsula for a weekend getaway. We actually redeemed a LivingSocial voucher on this trip and scored a … Continue reading

A Little Love For Ypsi and The D

I had a rather interesting Sunday in Ypsilanti and Detroit yesterday, so I thought I might pop in to tell you about it. Five Cent Femme planned out an adventurous day for J&M Corp (how we used to refer to ourselves at the young and naïve age of 16). First stop: Ypsi. We tried to … Continue reading
