Matthew Gray's Favorite Things


App I just can’t live without
Instagram tops my list... I love seeing everyone's creativity come alive as they recount their life in photos.

Original Cast Recording that's always on my playlist

Funny Girl 

What I spend all my money on

Travel.  I love the adventure of exploring new places.

Number ONE on my 2016 Holiday List

Time with my family.  
The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are all a-buzz in the Gray households....cookies to be baked, packages to be wrapped, and every hall to be decked!!  It is my favorite time of year to spend rolling up my sleeves, getting creative with my family and passing on traditions to the wee rascals.

Favorite Grand Rapids meal

Right now I just cannot get enough of the Moroccan Wings at The Winchester !

Best local spot for holiday gift buying

Rebel Reclaimed takes top spot in my eyes here.  
With a close second being awarded to Apothecary Off Main (they have so many grooming essentials for the men in your life---- don't walk---RUN to this cute little store and stock up on stocking stuffers!)

There are so many unique shopping options in Grand Rapids....one of the many reasons I love this town.

Best place for Grand Rapids holiday light viewing

I travelled down to St. Joseph this week and loved seeing Light Up The Bluff downtown.  A quintessential small town light display with a back drop of frozen Lake Michigan.  Now THAT'S Christmas!

Hidden local gem

If you are trying to stay warm this winter season, stop into Chez Olga.  Every menu item has a spice choice (1-10.) I have never dared go beyond a 5.  6 at your own risk!

Best Holiday Cookie of all Time

I love the Christmas Candy Cane Cookie!  A simple cookie that looks as good as it tastes!
