Monkey Business

Annie's Blog


How was your weekend? Got a chance to go to the Michigan City Zoo for the first time in years yesterday! Gotta say the improvements they are making look wonderful, but I was slightly disappointed by one feature: the Monkey House! All I was looking forward to was the crazy monkey exhibit and it's now closed! The monkey area was always my favorite growing up, and now it's a rundown mess in desperate need of repairs and a paint job! (I can see why they said after 80 years it's no longer safe for the monkeys!)

Also, while you're there be sure to take the extra steps to check out the tower! For some reason I cannot ever remember climbing to the top growing up. However, I did quickly realize the fiance and I are outta shape! Once we got to the top we were in desperate need of a breather! (Does this ever happen to you?) There was a little girl up there with her dad pretending to be a princess trapped in a castle... it was the cutest thing ever!

In any case, it still turned out to be a beautiful day, if you have kids and want an affordable quick trip to the zoo check it out. Now let's get ready to rock another week!



Easter Goes To The Dogs.

Annie's Blog


How was your Easter weekend? Did you get to spend time with the ones you loved? This was the first holiday in a long time I didn't have to worry about leaving early to drive back home for work the next day... it felt AMAZING!

Continued some of my favorite Easter traditions including coloring eggs with my sister, getting the Easter basket blessed with my mom, shooting dice after dinner, and having an Easter egg hunt for the dogs! Yes, you read that right... the dogs! (My mom desperately needs grandkids!) Jager definitely whooped Macaroni's butt in the egg hunt, stealing all the treats before Mac realized what was going on! (Check out the pic above)

Do you have any traditions at your house? Can't wait to eat those left overs later!

Lights Up Sound Down

Annie's Blog

Came across the event “Lights Up Sound Down” on Facebook and wanted to share it with you! (They do it every month if you can't make it this Saturday!) I never even thought of this as an issue. However, if you are a parent of a child with Autism you probably know all about it! Big thanks to Portage 16 IMAX for putting on this event. Check out more details on their website!

Have a great day!


Your Song.

Annie's Blog


I think I may have come across my first wedding planning problem... I need a wedding song! Yesterday, my fiance's sister asked the simple question what our first dance would be and Rob and I looked at each other in confusion! Should be simple right? I mean every couple has a song! Apparently, we've been together 5 years and do not have a single one!

I could think of a bunch of songs that make me think of Rob, but none of them seem to be slower tunes! I've been trying to think of some contenders... What is your special song? Any suggestions?
