Welcome Emmett!

Today was the baby shower for my cousin’s soon-to-be-here son Emmett. Having purchased for numerous showers and causes in the past, I am a snob when it comes to baby clothing. I only like Carter’s brand because they have quality items and the softest fabric. Alas even with Carter’s I was finding that they had prints that were scratchy so I had to touch every piece of baby clothing in J. C. Penny’s before I fell in love with this little set…

TBH there is nothing quite like a good bear hug – and the fact that it is camping themed doesn’t hurt. 🙂 Hope you like it Emmett!

Cactus Pear

Recently I decided to try cactus pears (prickly pears) because they were on special for two for a dollar. 🙂 First step after purchasing was to figure out how to eat it. Since none of my family or friends were familiar with this fruit, I found a video on YouTube…

Armed with knowledge, I attacked my pear.


Very pretty. :3


The flavor is unlike anything I’ve ever had before, slightly sweet, fleshy…  The plentiful seeds are a great source of fiber, but were too hard to chew so I spat them out! XD

One word of caution, the little spots on the fruit have itty bitty little pricklies. I rubbed my finger the wrong way on one and was irritating for quite a while afterwards. -.-;

To conclude, it was inexpensive, fun, and I would totally try cactus pears again.

Happy First Day of Autumn!

Hey hey everyone! Hope your summer
was amazing. 🙂 Mine was pretty packed – running from this to that, trying to fit things in – many of which I will be sharing soon. 🙂

I dunno about you, but one of my favorite things about this summer was the epic Michigan skies. Some days I was captivated by the impressive cloud formations, and other days it was the colors. No two days were ever the same and had my camera pointed at the sky every chance I got!


What was your favorite thing about this summer?
