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 [...]

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 [...]

What to See in Charleston

Whenever I would say I wanted to visit Charleston people would ask me why?! It was not New York City, or LA or even Miami what was the attraction?  Well... it all started with a little television show called Southern Charm (do not judge me!).  I watch just about everything on Bravo so this show was no different.  From the show, I learned how beautiful Charleston is.  I did a little more research and learned more about all of the African American history in Charleston and decided that I MUST GO! I shared with you what I ate, but now [...]

Guide to Taipei

I am back from my first visit to Asia and of course I have so much to share!  I had the privilege of traveling to Taiwan for work.  Since this was not a personal vacation, I did not plan out my own itinerary or do much research before heading to Taiwan.  With that, I really went in to this trip with no expectations and that honestly made the whole experience better!  I compiled the highlights of my trip in to this one LONG post as a Guide to Taipei! What to See & Do Taipei 101 Once the largest building [...]
