Girl Time

11 Jan

Happy Friday!

The weather in the MI is going to be in the mid 50’s this weekend which is warm for this time of the year, and I am celebrating by spending some girl time with the BFF. Making time for girl time is like therapy for me, we always have tons to talk about, we enjoy the same restaurants such as the Panache in Plymouth, MI  known for stylish ambiance and committed to using local ingredients.  One reason I enjoyed watching Sex and the City was because of the friendships, (besides the fashion of course). These women made it a priority to make time for each other regardless of how busy their lives were, and to me that is priceless.  Not only am I looking forward to spending time with the BFF I am also looking forward to the Golden Globes like most of us are which I also consider therapeutic.


What are some things you consider therapeutic,I would love to know?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Until next time,

Outdoor Fun

Happy Friday Lovelies,

I hope you all had a productive week. I have been trying to find someone who can revamp our blog, any suggestions? I also finished reading a book which always makes me feel somewhat accomplished, and I have been preparing for an upcoming boating festival in which I will be setting up a booth to sell our jewelry and our weekend is completely booked. We are meeting a friend for dinner tonight, then heading over to a concert to see the Gipsy Kings, and going to a party after. Tomorrow is no different another concert: TobyMac, (Christian Artist) and a wedding on Sunday which will be an all day event. If I didn’t have all these plans I would enjoy the rest of what is left of this beautiful summer somewhere outdoors.

Sometimes our lives get too busy and we forget to enjoy the simple things in life. I wouldn’t mind enjoying this weekend somewhere peaceful in the middle of nowhere just to get-away.

Hope you have a beautiful weekend Jewels,

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!
