Tameeka Time Travels : My last days in Michigan

My last days in Ann Arbor were much more low-key but still exciting.

Sunday morning Samantha organized a brunch at Sava's State Street Cafe.

I was able to meet more of her friends and have a really great brunch, one of the best. The staff was so polite, the mimosas were reasonably priced, and everything on the menu was delish.

While I was able to tour more of Ann Arbor, I started recognizing people and streets. I started getting used to area.

One of my last stops was to the Cupcake Station. The staff wasn't the friendliest but the prices were reasonable and the cupcakes were moist and yummy.

If you have any food allergies, I recommend asking the staff about ingredients. Out of the four cupcakes I tried the carrot cake cupcake (it's official name is "What's up doc?") had coconut in it and I'm allergic to coconut. Luckily Sam had a bendryl on her and I didn't have that back of a reaction just some throat irritation (she's such a great friend).

My favorite of the four cupcakes was the "Party Time" cupcake (vanilla bean with butter-cream frosting).

On my final night, Sam offered to make me some home cooked tortilla soup.
I've never had tortilla soup so I decided to record Sam making this delicious soup from scratch! It was amazingly delicious. We paired it with a glass of Merlot.

Here's a small video of Samantha in the kitchen making tortilla soup!

My days in Ann Arbor were really relaxing and exciting. I got to see a new state. Learn about the football culture in Ann Arbor. I went to a lot of great restaurants. Saw some amazing art and was able to reconnect with a friend that I've known since the6th grade. I would love to visit Ann Arbor again. If you find yourself in Ann Arbor and you don't know where to eat leave a comment below, I'll suggest a few places.
