You guys. I waited to get this post up until today because I wanted to make sure that I had enough time to sit and write up everything that went down this weekend. As you know, I spent last Thursday through Sunday at the Everything Food Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. I had never been, but let me tell you the weather was perfect and so were the mountains. I shared a room with these lovely ladies: Chrissa, Kelsey, and Ashley (who you may remember from GIRLS WEEKEND a few weeks ago). Before getting into the conference (this is… View Post

Happy Tuesday! I’m still in Arizona until tonight, but I know that today won’t consist of much more than lying by the pool, eating, and then heading to the airport, so we’re probably good to recap the last couple days here. This is how I spent my mornings. Tea and cool air. We planned this trip to Arizona as a way for everyone to get together to celebrate Neil’s parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. It was Neil and I, his parents, and Neil’s brother’s family. None of us had ever been to Arizona and it seemed like the perfect place to… View Post

Last weekend was a wonderful five days of warmth and relaxation. As promised, here’s a┬árecap of our trip to the Dominican Republic. Before I get into our resort, a quick story about how we decided on the Majestic Colonial. When we originally booked this trip, we were on an Airbnb kick. We had had such success in San Fran and Austin that we decided we wanted to do it EVERYWHERE. This is good in some places, such as the U.S. and even Europe, but unless you’re a seasoned traveler to islands where there’s a language barrier and things like water… View Post

Hey guys! I know we’re already halfway through the week, but after getting back on Monday night and into the swing of things, I finally have my Austin recap for you. To start, let’s talk about this adorable tiny house we rented on Airbnb. It’s a 250 sq foot house in the backyard of a super friendly family (with a dog!). It was cheaper than a hotel room and so cute. They had thought of everything — there were spices, coffee, tea, etc. There was a fully operational kitchen and even a washing machine in case I spilled BBQ sauce… View Post

Alright guys — back at it with part two of my California adventures last week. This time I’m covering our time in San Francisco! As I mentioned in the Yosemite recap, we elected to leave the park a little early and check into a hotel. Since we now had a free day, we decided it would be a good time to visit some of Neil’s family who live in the Sacramento area. We left the park on Wednesday night, drove three hours to Sacramento, and settled into our hotel. We had made plans for dinner and spending the night with… View Post
