Plans for the weekend

9 Mar

Hi Jewels!

It’s Monica! What are your plans for the weekend? I will be celebrating my husband’s birthday. I reserved a two night stay at the cozy Castle in the Country. It’s a bed and breakfast embedded in an enchanted forest near the Kalamazoo River in Allegan, Michigan. I’m really hoping to see some unicorns and fairies in this enchanted forest.

The Grill House


Jewels, I know what you’re thinking. The trip sounds more about me than my husband, but after much research and since Hattem (my husband) is sort of a meat connoisseur, I also made reservations at The Grill House which is a restaurant five minutes away from the castle. The Grill House is included in the Steak Paradise List on the Travel-channel. This isn’t your typical steak house where you wait for the chef to prepare your cut of meat. At The Grill House you grill it yourself. Not only do you grill it yourself, but you select it! Hattem will be like a kid in a candy store when he finds out that he will have to choose from Ribeye, Filet Mignon, New York Strip, and the king of them all the Lumberjack Steak. The dining also becomes a unique experience as you swap stories with others while cooking your dinner.

I also booked two side-by-side facials at the spa in the castle, which are much-needed from the dryness of this long winter. Thank God spring is on its way! I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend of pampering and relaxation, but what I am looking forward to the most is the expression on Hattem’s face at The Grill House. After all, it is his weekend. I have a feeling this will become a tradition in the near future.

Fill us in on your weekend plans, jewels!

Living things

We love this living space. It’s so comfortable and casual and totally pulled together. We especially love the idea of integrating some gorgeous green plants into your decorating scheme. Did you know there are a whole bunch of health benefits to keeping houseplants? You really can’t lose.
