Time for a regional coffee post! Welcome to Biggby Coffe – from my home state and more importantly, my home school! Biggby was once called Beaner’s and is still based out of East Lansing, Michigan (Go State!). Now there are 125 locations nationwide — many of them in Michigan and one located in my hometown, Birmingham. Awesome!

The menus inside the store are a little too “loud” for me (lots of different bright colors, whacky fonts) but once you figure out what you want – it’s pretty good! I got an iced mocha mocha, as I do.

This is my sister Emily enjoying a mocha mellow (chocolate and marshmallow).

It’s fun because you can sit at tables outside in downtown Birmingham and chitchat about random things like, oh, I don’t know, plan out matching tattoos with your two sisters.

And here is me:

Thank you, Biggby!

I have been a bad blogger. This game feels like a million years ago already but I think it was only last week!

A couple of reasons I’ve been a bad blogger:

1) Blogging is expensive. Ok – only my kind of blogging, because I like to talk about restaurants. And in order to talk about restaurants, you have to go to restaurants… and who is paying for that? This girl! So I had to cool it for awhile. Actually, the past three weeks I’ve gone out to eat a total of maybe three times. It’s been crazy. I have a good restaurant for tomorrow’s post though.

Reason 2) Work. Okay, honestly that’s not as big as reason number 1) but work has been crazy crazy these past few weeks. Side note that sort of relates: I’m kind of dying to eat some oysters right now.

But welcome back to the bloggy blog life of Amanda. I’m happy to have you here.

The above picture is from when the Michigan State Spartans (what up) came to Madison Square Garden to play against Syracuse. There was a lot of orange in that stadium, that’s for sure. And it was kind of gross. And then we got killed.  And it was embarrassing. But I’ll always love my Sparty. Can you spot him down there?

Sparty is such a big man. Kelly and I went down to the sidelines to meet him and get our picture with him, which is something I can now cross off my bucket list (seriously). So that was fun. I also like to take pictures of Missy cheering:

So yeah. I hope MSU comes back to play at MSG again and I hope this time we beat some butt. Go Green!

Two more posts from this round in Michigan, folks. Here is Michelli with a Bloody Mary at Tony’s in Ferndale. Tony’s is a teeny little sportsbar and boy did we pack it out for the last weekend of Spartan and Wolverine football. I’m only mentioning Wolverine football because we were actually at a fundraiser that had to do with the Michigan/Ohio State game but all you need to know is that Michigan lost and the better game on TV was with the Spartans anyway! Go green! I have so much Michigan State pride and I’m so glad I got to spend so much time with Michelle when I was at home last!

ALSO: while we were there, Michelle and I both ran into some Blasts from the Past. It is a small, small world. Even smaller when you’re in a Blast from the Past’s hometown! My Blast from the Past was an old friend from a summer at State when I lived in a house with five guys. Five guys! And I didn’t even know them when I moved in! It was a kind of experiment actually, and it was really fun. Miss those boys actually, that was a good time.

ALSO: It was at Tony’s where I ordered a BLT and when I got it, this man came over to me and asked me what kind of sandwich I was eating because it looked “good as hell.” Michigan!
