Sharing the Love

Life Ramblings

It’s awesome how anti-bullying campaigns are sweeping through schools these days! Internet bullying is out of control though, and I can only hope that the generation that’s being hit hard with the anti-bullying messages in schools today will change the internets tomorrow. This video was shared at my school and I wanted to pass it along because I love this man! Enjoy!…

Another Shift

Life

Well hello there! You might be surprised to see a post here. I know this a bit of a bother, but I’m coming back to this URL. I got a lot of feedback (mostly from friends and family) that they miss TBT and can never remember to visit Tasting-Tour. I miss it too. I also know that down the road I’ll be thankful that everything is in one place. I’ll still be shifting the focus of my content a bit,…

Marriott Rewards Program Review

Travel

I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Millennial Central for Marriott Rewards. I received Marriott Rewards Points to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. As you guys know, I’m blogging as part of the Marriott Rewards® Ambassador program, and this is the second of a serious of three posts. You might remember my trip to the JW Marriott Hill Country back in April. The property was great, and I…

Tastes of Chocolate

Uncategorized

I’m having a bit of trouble sleeping this week, so I’m gonna make this quick so I can hit the sack:( — This evening, I met the fabulous girls from the Triangle blogging group at Videri for a chocolate tasting! Videri is a small chocolate factory that opened last year. We learned about the entire chocolate making process – who knew it has to age for a month? Also, our tour guide wraps every single bar by herself! Impressive. The…

Monday + Meetup

Uncategorized

It’s been quite a nice Monday here! I babysat today and went to a spinning class this evening. It seems the weather has cooled off just a bit, so taking the little guy on a walk this morning wasn’t so bad. Matt got home from work very late, so I made one of my quick go-to dinners, which has actually become my favorite packed lunch: TJ’s black bean taquitos toasted in the oven over TJ’s lemongrass rice with avocado and…

Potluck: Triangle Bloggers

Uncategorized

Christina was nice enough to organize a Triangle Blogging Group and I volunteered to host tonight’s potluck! As can be expected, the spread was wonderful: Mojitos, French and British cheeses, dill and curry tuna salad, Mexican quinoa, chicken salad with golden raisins, cake! I made Angela’s banana split bites! Sadly, I made these yesterday, thinking they would be ok in the freezer, but when they thawed, they got gooey and brown. It’s a great recipe though, because they tasted fantastic…

Out of Juice

Travel

Hi friends, The good news is that I’m home safe and sound on the couch eating dinner from the WF hot bar and chocolate leftover from Chistmas (vacation withdrawal), but the bad news is that I left my computer cord in Florida and my laptop is dead.  Soo, I’ll have to wait a day or two to write a full recap of our time in Savannah because it’s too difficult to edit photos and blog without the appropriate software.  We…

Food Buzz, aka Food Coma

Travel

After a looong day of travel, I’m here! Kath and I checked into the Galleria Park Hotel in Union Square, where there was a roaring fire for this coldish November day and a swanky lobby. We rested for a quick minute, and then headed out to soak up the streets of San Francisco, since today was really our only moment of free time in the city. We witnessed an interesting protest, complete with a naked wo[man]? I decided that today…

In a Year

Life Ramblings Twenties

Happy Birthday TBT!!!    I’ve made it through a year of blogging! Remember this? My first post! On the surface, a lot has changed since this time last year – I graduated with a specialist degree, I said goodbye to Boston and moved south, and I got my first job. But deep down, not much has changed – I’m still on a hunt for good beer, I’m still finding my way around the kitchen, I’m still searching for that perfect…
