Mother’s Day


Happy Mommy’s day! Yesterday was Mother’s day, so I spent my day with my mom (obviously). Here she is watering the plants we planted yesterday: She’s gonna kill me for posting that. I made her a pot of plants for the patio for mother’s day (petunias, verbena, and pansies). She loved it. Anyway, we spent …

Lelli’s On The Green


Whenever my uncle comes into town, he has to visit Lelli’s, which used to be located downtown but recently moved just down the street from our house. Today, he came in and I was available to go for the first time. Lelli’s On The Green has been his favorite restaurant for years, and I know …

I mentioned last week that I wanted to re-do the front yard, which involved a bunch of stuff, including figuring out what’s wrong with the Azaleas.  Which I did. The location that the leggy, sad azaleas are in is under a dense, early foliage tree, which, while they’re a part-sun plant, they need much more …

Fashion Star: Episode 8


Sak’s Kara Larick’s tuzedo shirt was interesting. I liked the detail on the front, and the bit that hung down in front at the bottom. I especially liked it in grey, which Sak’s of course didn’t pick up. It’s an interesting top – though I’d never wear it. Sak’s is selling it for $235, and …

Sushi House


I know I just posted a restaurant review yesterday, but I went to a new place last night and had to do two in a row. This restaurant is two doors down from the most amazing Chinese restaurant in Oakland County, Rainbow, at 9 Mile and Farmington Road, but we weren’t as impressed with them …
