How to Keep Pets and Wildlife Safe This Halloween


With Halloween around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what to do to keep our pets and wildlife safe on such a fun night. While it’s enjoyable to dress up and trick or treat for humans, it can be quite scary for pets and wildlife. Dr. Gary Weitzman, veterinarian and president of San Diego Humane Society gives tips to keep both wildlife and pets safe this holiday.

It's Fall, Y'all! Time for a Apple-Caramel Getaway!

It's fall... well... let me take that back - a little. I know it's fall somewhere, but here: not so much. We are still having temperatures in the upper 90s every day. On top of that, my car's AC went out a week ago, and when I went to get it fixed Monday, the Buick dealership didn't have the piece they needed. So I hope it will come in today as promised. My Encore is a rolling hell right now, and I take about five showers a day.

In a little over a week we will head to Germany though! I'm excited to spend time with my family and friends - and of course to see and feel FALL! Make sure to check back. I will most definitely share a few highlights of my trip on here and my YouTube channel!

If you can't go to Germany, but Michigan sounds great, I want to share a WONDERFUL fall getaway with you today:
The Apple-Caramel Getaway!


Has the apple got your eye? Stay at The Hotel Saugatuck for an apple and caramel lover’s getaway! Start your visit at the nearby Crane Orchards where you may hand pick your own apples. The Hotel Saugatuck will cover up to 10 lbs of you apple picking - that's a lot of apples! Then return to the lakeside property in the evening for a private in-room caramel fondue for two. The Hotel Saugatuck will provide the hot caramel and a selection of toppings so you may dip and ‘decorate’ your freshly picked apples.


Crane Orchard apples include: Gala, Jonagold, Golden Supreme, Fuji, Macintosh, Golden Delicious, Blondee, Red Delicious, Honey Crisp, Ida Red, Empire, Mutsu, Jonathan, Braeburn, Cortland, Cameo, and Northern Spy.


This add-on getaway package is available September through late October, 2019. It costs $35.

Happy Saturday! Let's Celebrate Better Breakfast Month with Café Valley Bakery!

Happy Saturday! Did you know September is the official "Better Breakfast Month"? During the week I rather sleep 30 more minutes than prepping myself a breakfast, but on weekends I LOVE getting up, making myself some coffee and breakfast, enjoying it in front of the TV while watching "Fixer Upper" and "The Pioneer Woman". That's my Saturday morning routine. Do you have one?

(I was provided with a free product for my review. All opinions are my own. I would never endorse a product I don't like or believe in. If you use links in this post, I may earn a commission at no extra cost to you. Full Disclosure

A week ago I received a wonderful care package from my friends at Café Valley Bakery. You might have heard of them before, since it's the same company that had brought Dr. Pepper Soda Cake to the market. Now they are hoping to celebrate Better Breakfast Month (September) with you, too!


I received cocktail croissants, orange cranberry muffins, and pumpkin cream cheese coffee cake bites (which were my favorite!). Since it's just two of us in the household and the cocktail croissant package is HUGE, I put most of the croissants into ziploc bags (four of them/bag) and into the freezer. Now if we want a fresh croissant, we just take them out of the freezer, let them thaw for about an hour, and heat them up a little on top of the toaster (life hack right here!). DELICIOUS!
