Michigan Pt. 1

Sunday we arrived back home from a 10-day trip to Michigan to visit with Chris’ family.  We hadn’t been back there to visit in 2 years, which is a lot of time to not see your family!  I didn’t want to leave and I’m already wanting to go back.  Just for the scenery alone.  Flying back over California into LA, I was thinking “dang, it’s SO ugly here”.  It is. I don’t really get why tons of people live here, but that’s just me. (Uh yeah, what am I still doing here by the way? hah).

Enough of that. Here’s some pretty fall shots from our trip.  I’ll share the 2nd most fun part of our trip in a another post. And that would be, all of our beer and food tasting 😉

Oh! One important thing before the other photos…we planned a meetup with Lauryn, who’ve I’ve been blog-following for years!  I love my bloggy friends 🙂  We went to Union Woodshop for dinner, which was pretty much my dream place.  They serve beer in mason jars AND the decor was pretty dang rad. If you’re in Michigan you should definitely check it out, it was delicious.  Thanks Lauryn for an awesome time!!!

Deer!  I was so excited I got a good shot of the deer, we had to be super sneaky walking around to find them.

I love how this cell phone pic turned out:

Are you drooling yet? Gah, sooo beautiful!

It’s Fall! (ish)

It’s finally sort of Fall.  By sort of I mean, the weather was fall-like last week, and now it’s warmed up again, but still much cooler than it was 2 weeks ago.  Better than nothing I suppose.

I think one of the reasons for my lack of blogging is because summer seriously depresses me, because it’s SO hot for so long.  It makes me grumpy, tired, and just negative all over – and you don’t want to read a bunch of grumpy posts complaining about the weather!  Especially if we aren’t getting out of town/going on many trips.

I’m pretty sure I owe any readers left a few recipes that I’ve meant to post, but just haven’t. Like those awesome gluten-free donuts and chocolate stout cupcakes (which, apparently, I thought I blogged about but I did not. Fail.). And share quite a few other epic recipes that anyone who can bake needs to try asap.

Some other tidbits to update you all on..

  • We’re headed to Michigan for 10 days on Thursday! I’m super excited – all of Chris’ family lives there and we haven’t visited in 2 years! Sad….we didn’t go last year because we got married and went on our honeymoon. Which bring me to…
  • Our anniversary! It’s coming up in the 23rd 🙂  The trip is sort of our celebration I suppose, we don’t have anything else planned than I know of.
  • Here’s some recent phone snapshots of what I’ve been up to. My camera was dead for a few weeks because I lost my charger.

Bakersfield Oktoberfest! First timers. It was pretty legit!
Decorating for Halloween in the house. Speaking of…

I’ve also been shooting zombies.

My favorite band came out with a new album. Love.

And I am going to see them in November 🙂

Made a little deer art for the wall.

Nature

I have a draft of another wedding post sitting around, buuuut instead I wanted to share a few pictures of a little hike we did last weekend. We hiked up to the place where we got engaged, it was so pretty. I picked a bunch of those flowery things to add some pretty color inside my house 🙂
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, I truly am thankful for so much!

Fall….

Something like 2 and a half months (!!!!) until our wedding! This week I received our invitations that I ordered on Etsy 🙂 Here is a little peek:

And rightfully so, I am dreaming for fall….changing colors…. 

Perhaps some rain….ahhh, rain 🙂 

Pretty, warm scarves.

And of course, hot drinks to warm you up.
