About Me

My photo
I try to be superwoman. I like iced cappuccinos, photography, design and being neat and tidy. My husband and I are homebodys - even though we've been together for 10 years, (married for three) our life is never boring. We have an almost two year old daughter who is the center of our world. Join us as we make our house a home and juggle parenthood for the first time.

Our trip to Ann Arbor

I've been wanting to take a family trip for a day to Ann Arbor. It is about an hour and a half away from our house, but very much worth the trip. I have heard about Zingerman's - the best bakery/deli in Michigan, but had yet to step foot in the collection of 3 buildings on Detroit St.

One of my photography clients lives in Ann Arbor and after their engagement shoot on a particular hot, exhausting day, treated me to a Zingerman's vanilla iced latte. Heaven. Pure heaven. I was hooked. Hand shaven vanilla beans from Mexico? These people surely know their food. Literally everything is available to sample prior to purchase. A taste guarantee? I am in. Food is even shipped nationwide from the Ann Arbor location. See here for Zingerman's mail order.

My husband got J.V.W.’s Detroit St. BBQ - Zingerman’s BBQ Amish chicken, Nueske’s applewood-smoked bacon & coleslaw on grilled sourdough bread. Served with a side of applewood-smoked baked beans. And I decided on Dave’s Open Road - Grilled Amish chicken breast, applewood-smoked bacon, Wisconsin muenster cheese, Zingerman’s ranch dressing & lettuce on grilled challah bread. We also got a loaf of Parmesan Pepper Bread to take home. Sophie liked to test out her new teeth on a slice.

After our late lunch we walked around Kerrytown and discovered more shops. There is an adorable upscale baby store, Elephant Ears, that I wanted everything in it!

I am sure we will visit Ann Arbor again, there's so much to see and do. To be honest, my husband and I were reminiscing about the college days when we were there so maybe next time we will leave Sophie at home to relive our irresponsibility at the many bars downtown. :)
