Brome Burgers & Shakes

We LOVED this place.  The girls and I had such a great time eating dinner here.  We highly recommend checking out Brome Burgers & Shakes if you haven't been there yet for the following reasons:

  • WALKING IN:  When we walked up we loved the lit up outdoor seating and the earthy decor inside of the restaurant as well.  While doing a little bit more research I found out that they built the shelves in the restaurant with reclaimed wood from the Dearborn railroads when the Amtrak Station in Dearborn was renovated.  The wood was repurposed by a company in Detroit, Michigan called Detroit Reclaimed Woodwork and Art.  So basically they already got me with the plants, the lighting, and the reclaimed wood...I love that stuff.
  • SEATING:  It was very open, comfortable, and laid back.  A great place to take the kids, or really anyone, but in my case being a single mama it's important to have a place my little birds can enjoy as well.  
  • THE FOOD:  SO DELIGHTFUL.  You have to try the sweet potato fries!  My little birds LOVED their food as well.  We tried the kids cheeseburger, sweet potato fries, Madagascar vanilla bean hand spun milk shake, and the wild mushroom burger (which had Wild Mushroom, Arugula, Swiss Cheese, Mustard Grain Aioli, Braised Onion on it).  They also offer fish, chicken, and vegan options.  
  • ABOUT BROME:  We pledge 100% organic beef that only comes from grass-fed cows that lead comfortable lives. We pledge ingredients that are NON GMO certified so that what mother nature intended, is all that goes into our bodies. We pledge sustainable business practices that increase efficiency and reduce waste. *This is their pledge taken from their website*

TODAY is my birthday and it was so special for many reasons.

  • My tiny birds made me a strawberry, sprinkle, unicorn birthday cake and they were both so excited to give it to me.  Chloe wants to be a 'baker' when she grows up so this was very special for her.  Thank you to Aunt Kimmy for helping my littles bake the cake and surprise me with it. 
  • Issy played with the cake...standard behavior and so adorable which makes me totally fine with a mess.
  • First snapchat with my dad...deer for hunting season.
  • My mom made one of my favorite meals for us to eat.
  • A beautiful flower from my little brother and sister in law.
  • Two books I'm looking forward to read from my aunt.
  • Cards, phone calls, and messages from so many people that I am thankful to call friends and family.

Overall, I am truly blessed and I want to say thank you for making the beginning of this new year of life so special.  I prefer to focus on the positives but I also want to be honest with you...this was a really tough birthday for me.  I worked all day which makes for kind of a lame birthday, but I would rather save my vacation days for actual vacations and camping adventures with my little birds.  I also thought about buying myself flowers today...which I went back and forth about and decided to get a tall coconut milk flat white from Starbucks instead.  Lastly '35' has always been my 'baby cutoff' year.  I always planned on have a large family and I thought that I would be done having littles at 35.  Maybe this really is the cutoff year, and my girls and I may remain a family of three, and I need to continue to embrace our life, and be content with where we are and what we are doing.  Life doesn't always work out according to our plans, but there is always a lot to be thankful for. 


What my birthday means to me is a new year and a fresh new start.  I'm really excited to get year 35 started and I'm looking forward to what God has in store for me and my girls.  Do you try to plan for your future and feel like you're not living up to the plans you have for yourself?  I am learning to slow down and enjoy the moments instead of worrying, and trying to plan the future.  If we aren't living today we are missing out.

Thank you to everyone that took time out of their day to wish me a Happy Birthday! 



Do you ever have to give yourself some additional motivation?  There are definitely some days when I have to give myself a pep talk and just remind myself that 'I've got this!'...and this is one of those moments. 

Two little ladies fast asleep in the car and a trunk full of groceries.  UGH...I worked all day and I am exhausted.  The thought of of getting each little bird unbuckled, carried into the house, taking off their shoes and coat, and getting them into bed without waking them up, AND bringing in the groceries and putting them all away...sooo overwhelming. So sometimes I just sit in the car for a moment and say 'you've got this, just get up and do the next thing'...that's what I have to do from time to time about a lot of things that this crazy life brings.  Thankfully God gives me energy and strength. Being a single parent and really a parent in general is not for the faint of heart.  Next time you feel this way know that I'm right there with you.

What is a situation that makes you feel completely overwhelmed?  Is there something that you remind yourself that gives you comfort?
