THIRTY

Despite my best efforts to stay in my twenties FOREVER, last month I officially turned the BIG 3-0.  My friend gave me a card that described my turning thirty process perfectly.  First, shock.  "This literally cannot be happening! I just turned twenty last week!"  Second, anger.  I snapped at a few folks who tried to label me as "old."  Then there was denial.  Yes, I refused to believe that thirty was upon me and continued to live in a space of twenty-nine and youth.  Finally, I reached a point of acceptance and said "ya know... I'm 30, but I still [...]

Revolve Kitchen + Bar at Hotel Derek

Hey friends! I am back at it again with a dinner review of Hotel Derek's Revolve Kitchen + Bar.  I had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant for the Houston Food Blogger Collective monthly dinner.  Here are my thoughts: Location and Setup: Hotel Derek is one of Houston's premiere boutique hotels located in the heart of the Galleria.  The front restaurant has had many lives as the hotel has tried to determine what fit best for their guests!  The current version is Revolve Kitchen + Bar which focuses on high end food in a relaxed setting.  The name Revolve comes [...]

Four Seasons Spa Houston

The Four Seasons is one of Houston's premiere hotels located near all the downtown happenings of the Toyota Center, House of Blues and Green Street.  As of late, there is a lot of construction in this area. From new hotels like the Marriott set to have a Texas shaped lazy river, to street upgrades and remodels like the one at the Four Seasons.  I was invited out along with my Houston Food Blogger Collective friends to visit the new upgraded spa and to check out the spa menu! While waiting at the lobby bar, the bartender told me that the [...]

Foodie Travels: Los Angeles Day 3

By day three in Los Angeles, my body did not know what way was up! We slept most of the day away, *sighs* I guess I only can be an efficient traveler for one day at a time. I am not a big fan of Fast Food anymore, because that seems to be the thing to say nowadays.  While in a pinch and becoming very hangry, I made a trip to Pollo Loco for food to feed the troops!  Once I walked in and saw the chickens grilling and smelling all kind of delicious,  I knew I made a good food [...]

Foodie Travels: Los Angeles Day TWO

Okay I am back to recapping my fabulous trip to Los Angeles. I am having to break it up by days, because I was greedy and ate way too much during that trip to put it in one post.  On day two, my body's natural central time body clock clicked in and I was up and out before 9am.  The early tourists wins was my motto!!! My sister was on team eager beaver tourist as well. Our first stop that morning was Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles.  THE creator of the unique combo! This is a tourist hot spot, so arriving [...]

Foodie Travels: Los Angeles Part One

As a child I saw a movie about a disastrous earthquake in LA and swore that I would never step foot in California. Ridiculous, I know.  Then after experiencing an earthquake in Missouri AND one in the DC area, I finally got over my fears and decided a trip to Cali needed to happen sooner than later.  Once my cousin made the bold move from Texas to Los Angeles, my sister, a few cousins, friends and I decided that a trip was needed! So just one week after my trip to Nashville, I was on a plane again, this time to [...]

Back in Kansas City

I spent last weekend back in my birthplace Kansas City, Missouri, to celebrate my Grandmother's 80th birthday!  I cannot go out of town without discovering or rediscovering some of my favorite places.

Indulging on the Carnival Glory Part TWO

Beautiful view of the middle of no where. It's been about a week since my vacation ended and I am finally writing my last post about my Carnival Cruise.  Then it's back to posting about Houston fare! So this final post will focus on all of the food we had in the main dining room.  For traditional cruising, you eat your dinner in the main dining room. It is generally a three course meal with several menu options.  Best of all you can order as many of the options as you would like.  The dining room is the best [...]
