Coffee & Breakfast

Brunch

I made a trip to local donut shop Glazed and Confused for a meeting with Retail Therapy last weekend, my first social plans outside of work in some time. I’ve been bumming around a lot lately, choosing to binge watch Game of Thrones again instead of making plans with humans. And now my friend introduced me to my newest guilty TV pleasure: Heartland. So..back to hermit status I go. Read More »

A Quick Trip to Shadyside

To Pittsburgh!

In an attempt to make my back-to-back Pittsburgh travels more enjoyable, Cole accompanied me and I booked us a cute hotel, walkable to lots of great shops and restaurants like Adda’s Coffee and Tea House. I was in a grumpy ass mood for about a week, but didn’t want this unplanned trip to feel like a chore, even though it was (to retrieve my car that broke down last weekend.) Read More »

Weekends at Home

Weekend Wear

Last weekend was one of those rare ones where I had almost nothing going on (except entertain visiting grandparents!) I wore this look to work and at home to chill. I had my eye on this sweater for quite some time before finally scooping it up last summer, but only recently started wearing more often. It’s been great for spring transition and imagine it will be a good choice layered over a pair of jean cut offs on a summer night..ahh can’t wait for that weather. Read More »

A Visit to Owosso

DSC_4292
I challenged myself last year to visit more towns around Lansing and around Michigan–I haven’t followed through on that so well, but when I’m questioning whether or not I should drive 40 minutes to really just grab coffee, I remind myself it’s a new experience and that I can plan more fun activities around the visit. I used to visit Owosso more regularly in my early 20’s when my then-boss lady performed in plays at their community theater. I went to the same place for dinner and didn’t explore more beyond that.
Once Foster Coffee opened (and I saw all the cool shit my friend Melissa who blogs at The Bee’s Knees was doing in her town), I headed out there and every single person at the shop was so incredibly nice and genuine. And they’ve recommended a handful of restaurants and other cool places to check out. So I finally checked out Birch & Elm boutique and Lula’s for cajun and creole food. That place did not disappoint. I ordered the chicken puffy pie and the puff pastry, chicken and filling was so. damn. good. It was a wonderful afternoon in Owosso!
