Huron National Forest!



When people first meet me I'm sure they assume that I love nothing more than shopping, Starbucks, and endless reruns of Gossip Girl. Which every now and then that's exactly what I'm in the mood for! What they don't know is that I also love camping, Moosejaw, and woods as far as the eye can see! 
...
I have as many personas as T-Swift ;)
Oops, too early?
...
What I'm getting at is to not judge a book by its cover. This weekend I took an opportunity to trail ride up in the Huron National Forest with Erik and friends. Sometimes you just need a trip filled with freezing in a tent, showering outside, crashing through mud, and innapropriate jokes and pranks. Minus hearing a very "angry growling bear" outside your tent at 4am.
...
Thanks a lot, Matt.
...
 Yes, I'm sure that all sounds so very unlike me. Well it's me! Although I must admit I do still wear makeup when in the wilderness.

Guess you can't take the bedazzle out of Britt ;)

Bonefish Grill!


There's only three big things I crave: Chinese food, mom's homemade peanut butter cookies, and seafood! I recently satisfied that craving for fresh seafood at Bonefish Grill of Troy with Emily and Erik. Right now Bonefish is teaming top tastes for menu choices for their summer specials. With all the mouthwatering options I had a difficult time deciding, but in the end I couldn't resist trying the seasonal Caribbean Style Dayboat Scallops dish! Sushi-grade caramelized scallops served with fresh pineapple salsa and vanilla bean rum butter, alongside green beans and jasmine rice.
...
My tastebuds were dancing.
...
Of course Emily ordered the same (copycat, hehe), and Erik went with a Wood Grilled Sirloin and Cold Water Lobster Tail. For dessert, we first tried the Summer Berry Bread Pudding. House-made brioche bread pudding, served with fresh summer berries, ice cream, whipped cream, and salted caramel sauce.
...
Let's just say it was berry delicious ;) 
...
Then came the Key Lime Pie that Erik joked was "better than in the Keys of Florida" with the lovely owner, Jared. You know you've found a gem when the restaurant not only has amazing food, but a beautiful upscale ambiance, a great staff, and service that goes above and beyond expectations! It was truly a dining experience, and we had an absolutely wonderful time.

Thank you to Bonefish of Troy for having Emily, Erik, and I for dinner!

So Matcha To Do!


Emily and I have done so many new things this summer that I haven't blogged. With this problem I'd like to pose a legitamite question. Did it even happen if you don't blog it?
...
That's like looking great with nowhere to go.
...
Enjoying matcha lattes at Common Grace Coffee Company is on that list. We all know my obsession for matcha, so this was a big deal for me. Don't laugh at a girl for needing a latte! I'm going to need plenty to get through playing catch up with these blog posts. I have so matcha to do ;)

Summertime Sadness!


Has anyone else experienced end of summer anxiety? For me, it's a very specific feeling that creeps in around mid August. It's the fear that I won't accomplish everything that I wanted to during the season. I'm not saying that I haven't done a lot, but I haven't even used my pool for goodness sake!
...
My sprinkled donut float is feeling neglected.
...
I've had "Summertime Sadness" on replay in my head for a week now. So here's to hoping I can squeeze in a dip before fall. Among many other "more important" things ;)
