A few years ago, my cousin was visiting from out of town and she asked me the question,”If you could only eat five foods for the rest of your life, what would they be?”. She immediately then shared that beets is one of her top five (and I immediately gagged – they consistently just taste like pure dirt to me). I later on framed this question … Continue reading Mmm…. Bacon wrapped hot dog
Tucson. It’s all in Tucson, AZ. I swear I’ve never eaten so much beef in one week. I’m shocked my insides didn’t revolt. Since getting back, it has been weird though because I cannot stop thinking about Ireland. The GoT premiere this week hasn’t helped that much, and I’ve talked up the show Derry Girls more times than I can count in the last two weeks. … Continue reading Where’s the beef?
Oh man, when life happens it HAPPENS. I had this delusion that I would have so much free time to do things this spring. I’m not taking any classes, I’ve scaled back on social commitments to focus on my health, I was coming out of hibernation and treading lightly as the pollen permeated the air. I was very, very wrong. And while I could bore … Continue reading New airport, who dis?
Did you ever have one of those weeks where when Friday came around, you didn’t want to talk to anyone? At the beginning of this month, I had one of those weeks. I was managing a case and by the time Friday night rolled around, I wanted to just curl up in a ball and watch some brain candy on TV. But the brain candy … Continue reading Your horoscope for today is to eat food with friends
Titled after a long day at work Despite indicating last week that I have developed a habit of running late to pretty much everything nowadays, Jeff I arrived a whole week early to our reservation at Noord. And while I am impressed that we managed to be early, it was a bit of a let down at the time for two reasons – 1, I have … Continue reading Bloog Noord
A week late to be exact – in getting this post to you. What else would it be? I’ve noticed that at some point in the last few years I have managed to always be 5 minutes late. I am not quite sure how or when this happened. I used to be early and on-time for everything. I hated being late. I still do hate … Continue reading I’m late
I need a weekend to recover from my weekend. I don’t know about you but I try to guard my weekend time as much as possible. Generally that means I save one day to get things done around the house, grocery shop, and just relax so that I can recharge for the week ahead. Last week, I knew going into the weekend that it wasn’t … Continue reading Phoning It In (Literally)
There are two times a year when I tend to hibernate. When it’s particularly cold out (aka now) and when it’s hot and humid (as in – July/August). Really what this means is that I’m not meant to live at either extremes. Temperate climates with highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s are my sweet spot. I know how to wear enough layers … Continue reading Hibernation Mode = Steaming Hot Stews
Remember how January felt like it was the longest month ever? Well February has me starting to feel the same way. For those of you not residing in the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S., Philly has managed to be cold, rainy, snowy, freezing rain, and grey for the last 2 plus days. It has done nothing to inspire hope but has done everything to keep … Continue reading Traveling For All the Right Reasons
The Bachelor has some serious love for Thailand. On last year’s The Bachelorette, Beccatakes Jason on a one-on-one date to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai. This season, Colton takes 13 of the ladies to Khao Lak Beach with dates in the Adaman Sea and Phang Nga Bay before “surviving” into the jungle. I have to admit that after seeing shots of Doi Suthep … Continue reading Turn Down for Wat
