Semi-Wordless Wednesday


Since this week has been a little more quiet, we decided to try some play-doh for the first time.  The little guy wasn't sure about it at first, but now loves it.  Boy does this bring back the memories.

Hope you all are having a nice week.

A day at the circus

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  The circus was in town here so we took the little one for the first time.  It was a 2 hour show and he was so good.  He was mesmerized by everything.

A quick shot with mom.

Can we say no way to this.  My hands were sweating just watching it.


He loved the elephants.

Oh this was a big hit too.

Fun was had by all :)

Happy Monday.

Friday Fun Finds

Yesterday I was watching a little bit of the Today show.  How could I not watch Kathie Lee and Hoda in the Bahamas. Heavenly. Well, on the show they were poolside and were showing bathing suit cover ups.  They highlighted a company that is new to me called Echo Design.  They have some darling cover ups for your spring break or summer vacations.

Have a nice weekend.

A craving for comfort food

Last night I was itching for some comfort food.  I thought to myself what should I make and then I thought of my mom's meat loaf.  Unfortunately, after searching the house I realized my mom's recipe was back in Illinois.  So a call to mom in Michigan and off to cooking.  This is such an easy recipe.  My mom has been making this as long as I can remember.  It is so good.  Or at least we all think so :) With a baked potatoe and a salad it hit the spot.  Enjoy!

3/4 c Quacker oats (quick one minute kind)

Semi-Wordless Wednesday

With many making plans for their summer vacations, I thought I would share with you some photos of a place I have been many times since I was a child.  It is from my home state of Michigan and is beautiful Mackinaw Island. If you have never been before, I would highly recommend it. It's a small island were there are no cars just bikes and horses.  It is heavenly.  I have always dreamt of staying the whole summer.

The Mackinaw bridge.

Some of the ferry's you ride to get to and from the island.


They have tons of bikes to rent on the island.

The island is only about 8 miles around so it makes for a wonderful bike ride.

The beautiful Grand Hotel

And lots of horse drawn carriages on the island.


Hope you enjoyed.

Have a nice Wednesday.
