Two and a Half Days in Cancun/Tulum – A To Do List of Sorts

This spot is where I felt like I did my best “traveling”… I found the spot that had locals, gringos and everyone in between, (stray dogs on the sidewalk, and someone had their cat with them at a table) I just ordered one of everything off the menu… and it was ALL amazing! Please, do yourself a favor and don’t always order what’s safe or normal for you… take a risk, you might like what happens.

The Whole 30 and Me

Have you ever thought to yourself “The whole 30 would be perfect for me!”… Oh yeah, I thought that too!

Eating in Austin: A Food Diary

Woof! Life has been busy since November and I feel like I’m finally catching up! The fast version is: Thanksgiving happened, The Apple Boys (a new musical I worked on) happened, Christmas and New Years happened… Then all of the sudden it was February. I have so many posts drafted that I want to write…

*WARNING* This is not a healthy post!
