Weekend in Phoenix

I turned 35 last month and decided that reaching my mid-thirties deserved something more than the typical dinner in Houston.  With 2020 a not too distant memory, I decided to search for a domestic location for a weekend trip to celebrate.  I wanted to visit a new city and one that leaned more "rest & relaxation" because I am 35 after all!  Somehow my sister and I settled on Phoenix.  We both had heard about the spas and food, so we decided to spend a Weekend in Phoenix. What to See/Do A few things to keep in mind about my [...]

Weekend in Chicago

Forgive me friends, it has been a few months but I am finally getting around to sharing the details of my trip to Chicago!  I attended college in Missouri so as you can imagine many of my classmates came from neighboring Illinois.  As such, I have made quite a few visits over the years and have some great friends who call Chicago home.  This spring I spent the weekend in Chicago with my best friend and we ate at ALL the good places in Chicago.  While this post is late, it still includes so many great places that I think [...]

Savannah Day Trip

Going back to Charleston for a week meant that I would have time to hit up some other places on that side of the country.  So many people told me that if I loved Charleston, I would also love Savannah.   With a two hour car ride between the two cities, we rented a minivan and made the short trip over to Savannah to see what this Southern city had to offer.  It was a short visit, but I wanted to be sure to recap my Savannah Day Trip What to See We booked this trip about a month before leaving [...]

Back to Charleston

Writing blog posts ain't as easy as it used to be folks! But I had to come and share with you all of the great places I ate and visited on my return visit to Charleston, South Carolina.  After getting my second vaccy dose, I decided that I needed a week vacation in a domestic location.  I loved Charleston so much the first time, so I picked it again.  So Back to Charleston I went with a group of friends and family in tow. Much of my trip was similar to my last visit, so please be sure to check out [...]

Morning Glory San Diego

Last month I shared nothing on this platform.  This was the first time since I created my blog that I let a month go by without putting fingers to my keyboard and sharing a new recipe, restaurant experience or travel.  I spent much of last month consumed with the Presidential election.  Sharing important news updates on my Instagram page, encouraging people to vote and even serving as a poll worker on election day.  After election day I jetted to San Diego with my sister for a much needed getaway.  We did not do much on this short trip that warrants [...]

2019 Travel Recap

The week after Christmas brings about time for reflection.  We start to think about what the year entailed and what we want to manifest for 2020.   This time last year, I was manifesting being intentional in all aspects of my life.  While there are still some areas of my life that could use a little more intention... one area that was not lacking was travel.  I knew I wanted to travel more in 2019 and travel I did.  Some of these places I recapped on my blog, others I just shared on my social media.  I typically write more for [...]

Getaway Dallas

*My stay at the Getaway Dallas was covered by Getaway, but the opinions are my own*  I am back from my last trip of 2019! If you have been following along all year you know I've been on quite a few.  Check out the recaps here.   This one was totally different than the others though, it involved a road trip to the middle of nowhere and a stay in a small cabin.   Can I just say that I do NOT do the outdoors, camping or ruffing it.  It is not my ministry!  I stepped outside of my box and decided [...]

Weekend in Beaumont Texas

So hear me out.  I spent the weekend in Beaumont, Texas.   On purpose.  AND had an amazing time!  Most Houstonians know about Beaumont, it's the smaller city to the east of us that we pass on our way to Louisiana.  I honestly had never stopped in Beaumont or even thought about it.   So when the Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau invited me to come explore the city I jumped at the chance to see what the city has to offer.  From the food to the attractions, Beaumont really has a lot of great stuff! Check out my recap of my [...]

Guide to Lake Tahoe

Life got a little busy for me and I had not been able to finish the recap of my Reno/Tahoe trip! Reno was great, but Tahoe was next level!  I have never considered myself much of an outdoorsy person so I did not know what to expect from Tahoe.  I mean there is a lake and mountains, so I expected my visit to be all about the outdoors.   Once again our guides curated experiences for us that fit our needs.  For me, that meant a trip to North Tahoe where I got to experience great food, views and experiences.  Check [...]

Guide to Reno Nevada

*This trip was sponsored by the Reno Airport Services Corporation. All opinions are my own* A few weeks ago, I received an invite from the Reno Airport Services Corporation to visit and see that all Reno and the surrounding cities had to offer!  Now I must admit, I thought it could have been a scam, but once  I learned that United Airlines recently added a year around direct flight from Houston to Reno that the team wanted to showcase! For followers of my blog, you know this has been my year of travel so who am I to say no [...]
