the other day irv and i took ella to the sears tower (willis tower?). we went to the sky deck all the way up on the 103rd floor.

we recently bought ella a camera..and its actually a pretty amazing little pink camera. check out the little photog in the making...

they recently put in glass observatory ledges up in the sky deck. ella wasn't scared one bit, she walked out on the glass like it wasn't any different from the carpeted floor. irv on the other hand? it took him awhile and a lot of coaching, but he made it out for a few brief moments.

i want a room like this in my house! if my house was up on the 103rd floor that is. i love it!

afterwards we, of course, ended the day with some boba from joy yee's. i know, i know, we just had it, but its soo good! its hard to stay away :)

breakfast at lou's.

breakfast at lou mitchell's is amazing. they give you dounut holes and milk duds when you walk in- one of the many reasons why you have got to try the food and eat here for yourself.

warning: if you're hungry read no further - unless, of course, you don't enjoy cookies :)

have you ever tried the strawberried peanut butter M&Ms? they're surprisingly delicious. just the right amounts of peanut butter + strawberry + chocolate.

not only are they good by themselves, but they're also great in these cookies! i'd like to say i baked these, but in all reality irv did most of the baking. i probably ate more than i actually helped :)


last weekend we spent most of the day + a good chunk of the night on the corner of hayworth and melrose ave. all because we were waiting for a certain johnny cupcakes to arrive.

and arrive he did...he may or may not be in that box ;)

that is chocolate zucchini cake. and it is delicious! i've made so much zucchini bread the past few months that it was getting kinda ridiculous. i still had one giant summer zucchini left and so i decided to try something new. thus chocolate zucchini cake!

i'd like to say i hand picked that raspberry. but no..its from costco. irv and i did make the cream cheese frosting though.

this recipe is definitely a keeper. sooo moist! here it is. try it for yourself!

finally fall.

for the past month or so i've been really wanting to go raspberry picking. this weekend i finally got to go! sadly i was greeted by this...

half-dead, dried up berries the size of peanuts. unfortunately i've come to realize that after raspberry picking in southwest michigan nothing else really compares. so i guess its just gonna be costco raspberries for me for now...

during our entire raspberry picking session i found one berry worth picking. as you can see i was pretty excited.

the afternoon wasn't a total waste. these three peeps, mini doughnuts, caramel apples and pumpkins made up for the lack of raspberries :)

say it ain't so.

i'm freaking out. can it really be october already? i still haven't accepted the fact that its september so it can't already be october!

right now irv's in the process of moving into a new place. he hates moving, but i think he'll like his new place once he's all settled. i haven't had the time to snap a photo of his new place so....

i have a confession to make.. i'm extremely embarrassed of my drawing skills (or lack there of). the above is no exception to this...so please don't laugh, or at least don't tell me you were laughing. i'm trying to accept my lack of talent and run with it!

happy october to you! i'm hoping this month won't disappear as quickly as the last..
