Where to Stay in the U.S. Virgin Islands

Did you survive the winter? This year, to me, has flown by, and one of the reasons has been the weather. Certainly, these past few months have been record setting, no? Here in Texas, we saw only a two-day cold snap, then out of nowhere, temperatures were hovering around the 80s. Which is fine, you […]

Chocolate Covered Bourbon Caramels

I know you are looking at this picture and thinking…I must have one of these caramels. I must. But first, you need to know the backstory.  I like a good backstory, don’t you? So let’s just dive right in, shall we? Chocolate Covered Caramels are waiting. Several years ago (well, about SEVEN years ago), I […]

Blackberry Cream Cheese French Toast Bake

Have you been to France?  I have.  Several times now. Know how many times I have had French Toast there? Not a single one. I’m not even sure French Toast is French.  I could Google it, but, alas, I am a lazy sort, and I prefer to simply eat it versus Google it. This particular […]

A Weekend in Stillwater, Oklahoma

I’ll be the first one to agree with you here. Oklahoma?  Have you ever heard of anyone taking a vacation in Oklahoma? I hadn’t. But here I was, traveling to Stillwater, Oklahoma for a long weekend fam trip with my new husband and Seven, my son.  My second time ever in the state, only preceded […]

Blogger Bash 2016 in New York City

If you follow me on Twitter, you may already know that I spent a good chunk of last week in Manhattan. God knows, I love New York.  I do.  I especially love the Midtown/Hell’s Kitchen/Park areas of town, where the streets are always alive and the lights? Yes, they are always on.  Heck, I even […]

Costa Rica Getaway…Rio Perdido

A few short weeks ago, I snuck away to the jungles of Costa Rica. Yes, jungle, not BEACH.  Though Costa Rica does have outstanding beaches, and plenty of nightlife and seaside activities…that wasn’t what I was looking for. I wanted a retreat. Rio Perdido fit the bill. Tucked away about 90 minutes drive from the […]

Hersheypark in the Dark

Can you believe it’s only a month until Halloween?  A MONTH. That’s frightening. I have always loved Halloween, and now that I have Seven, it’s so much fun to see the holiday from his young eyes.  He’s a huge fan of getting really dressed up – we take our costumes seriously – and even though […]

Seattle with Krusteaz

One of the best parts of my job is getting to work with brands I adore, and another?  Traveling.  So, it’s a win-win situation when one of my favorite brands – Krusteaz – brings me out to Seattle for a long weekend of fun and learning. Krusteaz is headquartered in Seattle, and for the past […]

Technology Friendly Family Travel Tips

I went on the ultimate American Road Trip. Over 7000 miles, in a truck, husband and son in tow…and we came out alive on the other side.  From Virginia through the Midwest, across the Dakotas, through the land of every.single.national.park, down the Pacific Coast, and then finally back across the southwest and canyon country, the […]
