We traveled to adam's uncle's house in Maud, Oklahoma during thanksgiving weekend. Maud is a small town east of Oklahoma city. His uncle owns more than 160acres of land which has been in the Merkle family for generations. The place is sooo pretty.caroline's boots.

adam's aunt is driving all of us in their golf cart..

the pond on the land. adam's uncle said there are huge fish that live there

i drank michalob ultra in a beer cozy.


it doesn't quite look like this but it is snowing in mount pleasant! weird, but it looks a bit like ash.


christmas flights

adam is currently looking for our flights from michigan to miami to oklahoma to new york to michigan. this is going to be one expensive holiday...



adam and i decided to take a drive to frankenmuth this weekend. frankenmuth is the little bavaria of mighigan. they have an oktoberfest every year.this is the christmas cookie adam bought at brommers. they are the biggest christmas store in the world! the cookie looks bad but tastes pretty good. combining our total, we spent over $120 on a christmas store. can you imagine?

my michigan guide says that we are supposed to eat at zehnders for chicken dinners or bavarian inn. we chose bavarian inn.
adam waiting for our traditional bavarian food. he's a little hungry= grumpy.
adam and i both tried their beer sampler:

bavarian inn dark beer- brewed exclusively for the bavarian inn. roasted malt produces the rich dark color. a perfect blend of mild hops and full-bodied malt flavor makes this an outstanding dark lager.

blue moon- a belgian-style white beer. crisp and clean, this unfiltered ale is served with the traditional slice of orange.

heidelberg light - a bavarian inn tradition since 1966, a crisp and refreshing american style lager. very light with a smooth finish, a perfect complement to food.

hofbau original - imported from the hofbrau brewery of munich, germany. this is the same german lager served in the world famous hofbrauhaus. enjoy, smile and be German........PROST!

our bavarian meal (it also came with a ton of sides)


man shops globe

addicted to sundance channel's man shop's globe. keith johnson is a buyer for anthropologie and scours the world for the unique furniture/trinkets you see in the stores..

adam usually hates the television i watch but he finds this show pretty entertaining.


want want want want want

the bike shop in mount pleasant doesn't carry the amsterdam becuase it's a bit pricey..


the weather report says the snow is coming next week! too bad i will be out of town for the first snow of the season..


current addiction

i used to eat the plain greek yogurt with walnuts and honey.. but the co-op in mount pleasant carries the individual flavored yogurts. my favorite flavor is honey (soo good) and pomegranate comes in second..


my michigan lumberjack look

we went to the butchershop and supermarket today.. there were at least five older men wearing the same outfit as me. i should get a truck.



i was reading a japanese fashion magazine about the design duo eley-kishimoto. i thought that wakako kishimoto kind of looked like me. i had a doppelganger in junior high named laura.


is it coming?

we had frost today this morning. the ipod said the weather was 27 degrees here in mount pleasant.

i am starting to get excited about the snow...



the new stocking stuffer's at anthropologie are soo cute!

need idea's for gift's this christmas.


hungarian beef stew

this past sunday we had hungarian stew. . it was pretty good. it took 3 hours in and out of the oven to make. i wanted to eat stew and watch twin peaks in the cold weather. chilly weather + hot stew seems lovely right?

the weather was actually really pleasant this weekend so i turned off the heater so the inside of the house was chilly enough and perfect for stew + twin peaks


i bought a pabst blue ribbon 40 on one of my walks. i am so classy.


someone bought my car this weekend. kind of a weird feeling. i've been driving this car since i was 18. thank you lola for being a good car for such a long time. i hope the new owner treats you well.

island park

it was sunny out this weekend so adam and i decided to take a walk.

this is downtown mount pleasant (feels like the set of gilmore girls or something, huh?)
this is a little river that runs through a park called island park
i wanted to play here but i think i am too old
more river



Adam and I have the same size waist. No more candy for me (says the girl who ate a whole bag of popcorn plus cookies last night..)
