long drive & a little baking

so with everyone freaking out about Google Reader {I tried to use it once, but I actually use Blogger Dashboard, and I am now switching over to Bloglovin'}, & GFC, I'd like you to know that you can follow me on Bloglovin' by clicking the heart button under my picture on the right side of my blog {or by clicking any Bloglovin' in this paragraph}.

moving on.

yesterday I took a drive up north to go to some thrift shops. it was a fail. I only ended up going to one, and I didn't even buy anything there! I wasn't 100% sure where the thrift store that I wanted to go to was located, but I apparently drove right by it, and all the other ones were closed for the season. I did make a few stops along the way to take some pictures!





Fish Creek Beach. I pulled my camera out of my purse here and somehow managed to open the battery holder part of the camera and dropped the batteries in the snow...thankfully I had some extras in my purse!

I think it looks so much prettier in the winter.

rainbow around the sun. every time I looked up at the sky, it was there, and I wasn't sure if it was because I had my sunglasses on, or if it was really there.

I parked next door at the hardware store and walked on the side of the highway to do a little trespassing take some pictures of the sign and the big screen. I wanted to go into the parking lot part of the theatre, but I didn't think that that was a good idea.

Wilson's in Ephraim - I could go for some Cedar Crest ice cream right about now!

the beach in Ephraim - there were a bunch of dump trucks and other big equipment along the water/ice in Ephraim. I wonder what they were doing!

road to Northport - I wish this picture was of what I actually saw. the part of the road that you can see in the distance is really windy and hilly, and it's really cool!

I stopped in the middle of the highway to take this one, but here is a link to a better picture of the road that someone took in the fall.

I was going to screenshot a picture of GoogleMaps for the road, but the map doesn't do it justice, either.

Northport

I apparently arrived not too long before the ferry was leaving for Washington Island; there were a few cars in line.










brrrrr. so cold, but so pretty.



I love the blues with the white and the tan.


I stopped on the highway again to try to get a picture of the road. still not the best luck.











On my way back south, I stopped at this cute little store where they have homemade jam, and I can't wait to try the strawberry-raspberry jam that I bought! I also got a carrot muffin mix from Rabbit Creek Gourmet. their products look so cute, and are such a great idea!

I made some Thin Mint cupcakes today! they're nothing too special, just a box of Pillsbury chocolate cake mix with ten crushed Thin Mints, and Duncan Hines Chocolate Mint frosting.

  2. These pictures are so beautiful Teresa! The mixture of blues in the sky and the snow is such an incredible contrast. I can't believe you went out thrifting with that much snow on the ground! If it's even raining just a bit, I lock myself indoors! Haha
