Leaving Detroit, Back to Ohio!


I still have a lot of Detroit photos to upload, but I’m going to fast forward to the road trip home. I left Detroit around noon after browsing the Eastern Market on Thursday. My parents were on their way to Ohio, and so I wanted to meet up with them at the same time.


I kind of retreat buying the Java Monster Coffee + Energy because I know how bad it is for you. Even though it’s only 50 calories, it’s heavy on the artificial additives. I only took a coupe of sips because it wasn’t that great. The gas stations didn’t have the Starbucks ones, so I was stuck with the Monster.

I spent most of the trip reading my book. It’s so so so fascinating. A lot of things are starting to make sense.


I picked up some fresh roasted no salt added pumpkin seeds at the historic eastern market for the trip.


I am going to make chocolate covered pumpkin seeds when I get back.


We got hungry later in the trip and stopped at sonic. I did’t plan on stopping for food or fast food, but we got stuck behind a lot of construction and the trip ended up being way longer than expected.


When I asked for “mustard”, she must have heard me say “mozzarella sticks’, because these landed in my sack.


I ordered the grilled chicken wrap without sauce. I didn’t eat the entire tortilla because it was big enough to make at least three wraps. Sonic should start offering whole grain wraps. 🙂


I got back to Ohio around 3:30 and met up with my parents!:) We made healthy lasagna for dinner! You can find the recipes here.

    I really like the idea of garlic pita bread! I’ve seen you post about it twice this week and it really looks yummy 🙂

    Hi I love your blog! Whenever I go on road trips I always drink lots of water! I have not seen any posts on your blog about the importance of drinking water, or maybe I just haven’t come across one yet because you’ve ben blogging for so long! lol. Do you have any tips for getting enough water in during the day?

    I am really excited to hear about you ghost research and also about why you think that your apartment is haunted. That topic always interests me. I also have a question, how come instead of buying that gross Monster, (I hate Monster myself), you got a different drink at the gas station? A sugar-free lemonade or ginger ale? (That’s what I get to drink besides water on trips). Just curious!

    I’ve always wondered this about you: Is blogging your job? If so, I’m jealous. You blog is amazing <3

    That lasagna looks absolutely delicious! If it weren’t 9AM here, I’d totally make it right now. (I don’t think my family would like lasagna for breakfast. LOL!)
