Spring Fun at the Mulberry Lane Farm

This post is sponsored by Kleenex but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.


Last week, we did a press trip out in Wisconsin and visited the Fox Cities (otherwise known as Greater Appleton) for the first time. We ate a lot of delicious Wisconsin local food, and we had a great time exploring the area and seeing all that there is to do and enjoy while visiting that part of WI!

Among all of the fun activities we did on our trip out to the Fox Cities, perhaps one of my favorites was the day we spent at Mulberry Lane Farm. We weren't going to let bad weather stop us from enjoying ourselves, so we packed some ponchos, boots, and some Kleenex Wet Wipes, and we headed out on the road just a short drive from our hotel in Neenah, Wisconsin. 

Mulberry Lane Farm is a wonderful family activity when you are visiting the Fox Cities area. We took advantage of their petting zoo opportunities they offer, and I got to spend some time saying hello to all of the friendly animals around the farm (and even had my first experience milking a cow!) 

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 176


Good morning!

Last week, after I got back from our press trip out to the midwest to explore Wisconsin, I came home and felt the urge to purge my closet and sell some unworn items and do some intensive deep cleaning. After going through my things and selling and donating items, I feel a lot better now with a less cluttered closet! 

This weekend, we have a few errands to run and things to do around the house. A quick run out to the farmer's market to pick up some fresh ingredients for some blog post recipes we are working on is a necessity this weekend, as well as picking up some other household items at our grocery store. After that, we will be taking some time to go out on a date night some time this weekend to the movies to see the new MARVEL's Deadpool movie. Other than that, it's a much more slow-paced weekend this week compared to last weekend (be sure to check out our first Wisconsin travel post that we shared a few days ago if you didn't have a chance to see it yet!) 

10 Bite-Sized Bacon Appetizers

Over the summer, prepare these bacon-packed appetizer recipes that are perfect for summer entertaining!


With summer break nearly here and the warm weather rolling it, it is finally starting to feel like summer!

We have had the grill fired up a few times this season, and we have enjoyed having some friends over on the weekend for a poolside barbecue enjoying drinks and food. Barbecuing and grilling is something that Adam finds rather therapeutic, and I certainly do not mind reaping the benefits of how much enjoys to cook on the grill! One of his favorite grilling ingredients to work with, besides cheese, is pork belly bacon. 

Grilling ideas with bacon are nearly endless! There are so many ways to utilize bacon when it comes to grilling, but with summer entertaining in mind, we are sharing some delicious bite-sized bacon appetizer ideas perfect for all of your weekend barbecues and summer holidays this season (including these bacon wrapped poppers from Spaceships and Laserbeams blog!) 

7 Must-See Spots for Foodies in Fox Cities (Greater Appleton, WI)

Are you a foodie? Are you headed to the Fox Cities area in Wisconsin? Make sure to check out these 7 spots before you leave the Appleton area! Thank you to Fox Cities WI tourism for hosting our trip and our accommodations!


When you think of Wisconsin and food, the first thing that usually comes to mind is cheese! Since they are one of the top producing cheese states in the United States, Wisconsin has become known for all things cheesy. But after our recent trip to Fox Cities, the Greater Appleton area, we have learned that there is so much more to Wisconsin than just cheese!

Dairy, no doubt, makes up a large part of the local business scene and is the heart of the community in Wisconsin. After our press trip out to Wisconsin, while we learned that the cheese and dairy definitely exceeds your expectations and tastes wonderful, we also learned that there is so much more to enjoy while you are there! 

Excellent chocolate, beer, coffee, steak, and pastries are just the beginning of what you can expect from Fox Cities in Greater Appleton, Wisconsin. Check out some of our absolute favorite foodie spots in the area, and be sure to save this post to Pinterest to your travel boards (or share with your friends on Facebook who live near the area or those who are making travel plans to visit Wisconsin!)
