Summer Funnin’

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

Tempeh Reuben with The Brinery’s Products

Recently I was contacted by the folks at the local company The Brinery about trying out their latest product. The Brinery specializes in all things preserved and fermented – pickles, kimchi, sauerkraut, sriracha, and now, tempeh. What is tempeh you ask? Tempeh is a meat-free protein that is a favorite of many vegetarians and vegans … Continue reading

The Ravens Club – Blogger Dinner

Last April, I wrote a blog post about Ravens Club’s Improved Menu, after enjoying my favorite meal to date at the restaurant since its opening four years ago on Main Street in Ann Arbor. More recently, last week in fact, I was the lucky recipient of an invitation to come dine at Ravens Club with … Continue reading

MegGoesNomNom Goes Autumnal

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

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.

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

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

Just A Day At The Beach

Just A Day At The Beach

A day at the beach is good for the soul. So is bacon. Bacon is also good for the soul. Saturday morning, beginning our first full day at the cabin, we had a giant spread of breakfast foods – my favorite! Bacon, potatoes, toast, eggs, zuke bread, fruit. Head spinning yet!? Plus coffee + OJ. … Continue reading

Friday Upnorth

Friday Upnorth

This past Friday I took half the day off work and the huz and I headed ‘upnorth’ for the weekend, to my parents’ cabin. This was our first time visiting the cabin! It was charming, and sits on a really nice lot. Check out the back yard, and new shed. For dinner, my dad started … Continue reading
