Pike Place Market

Like I said in my last post, television shows and movies were my source for all things Seattle.  If you were an avid watcher of Real World Seattle like me, then Pike Place Market is a MUST stop for any trip to Seattle!  We spent so much time there it deserved it's very own post.  Here are all of the things I ate and saw in and around Pike Place Market. Elliott's Oyster House Our conference hosts were kind enough to provide a list of Seattle restaurants near the conference hotel.  By day two we were all craving some seafood. [...]

Foodie Travels: Seattle Part 1

Writing travel blog posts may just be my favorite posts next to giveaways!  I am here to share all of the fun foodie details about my recent work trip to Seattle Washington!  Let me first get my stereotypes out of the way. I was in Seattle for three days and did not have to pull out my umbrella once!  But, I did see fish tossed around at Pike Place market, so there is that. As this was my first trip to Seattle I was fully prepared with the information I learned from Sleepless in Seattle and Real World: Seattle!  Alas, [...]

Washington DC: The Food

As you probably can tell, when I travel I am eager to come back and share all of my experiences from the trip, especially the food!  Well, let me calm some expectations before you dive into this post.  My trip to D.C. was very short and mostly spent touring the monuments and museums.  Add in the fact that I had to account for finicky teen and tween appetites, my foodie experiences were fairly limited!  We ate breakfast at our hotel and grabbed typical franchise spots a few times. Somehow I managed to visit three spots that are worth sharing here [...]

Weekend in Washington D.C.

I am back with more fun tidbits from my weekend in Washington D.C.  My weekend trip to D.C. centered around visiting the NMAAHC which I recapped in a previous post.  I really could have spent my whole weekend at the NMAAHC, but since we brought my two little cousins (12 and 13 years old) along I knew they had to see more than just the inside of the museum!  Maybe it’s the years of showing family around D.C., but somehow we finally managed to cram in most of the highlights in one short weekend *pats self on the back.*  I’ll highlight [...]

National Museum of African American History and Culture: A People’s Journey

Y'all, in a word the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is AMAZING. Please know that this post is LONG and I really fought the urge to right a dissertation about my visit!  I have been a fan of black history since I was a child.  My grandmother could captivate me with stories of our family history layered with historical context when I was in elementary school.  She shared these stories orally in the same manner that much of our history has been passed on.   Fast forward to college where I majored in History and immersed myself in every [...]

Black Girls Who Brunch Houston Foodie Guide

When friends or family come to visit me in Houston, I take showing them a good time very seriously!  Houston is one of those cities that does not have a reputation like a Vegas, New York or Miami, so it is up to me to show them why I love this city so much. Since I became a food blogger, they all show up expecting me to take them on a culinary tour that is diverse as Houston.  That is where the fun comes in!  With each guest, I try to showcase the growing foodie scene in Houston by highlighting [...]

The Paris Series: Random Thoughts and Tips

I know it's been over a month since I returned from Paris, but I have more to say!! Spend about a week in foreign countries and you will come home with SO many thoughts.  In this case, all of my thoughts did not fit in my three previous posts so I had to make a whole new posts with my random musings from this trip.  I threw in a few travel tips too :).  Enjoy! Rude? One common thing I heard about Parisians is that they are RUDE.  I did not find that to be true!  While they were not [...]

36 Hours in New York City

I am the fool who thought it would be a good idea to go to New York City the week after returning from Paris and London.  It sounded good in theory, you know that jet setting life that we all thought we would be living after college.  Well, that life is only good in theory because I am TIRED.  Despite still dragging from all of these travels I still must recap my trips here on BGWB for you all.  So here is what happened when I spent about 36 hours in New York City!' Back at it again! [...]

Day Trip to London

Oh London, I hardly knew you! As soon as we booked our trip to Paris, I began looking at ways to maximize our trip by visiting other cities and/or countries.  Rome was top of my list, but a twelve hour train ride seemed out of the question.  The next option though, London proved perfect!  We could travel there, for just a day and get a taste of the city. So a couple days into my Paris vacation, we stopped over in London!  Here are all of the details of my day trip to London! Getting There Beautiful decorations at the train station! [...]
