  1. Dole Pineapple Plantation in Hawaii
    Oahu is breath taking. The Hawaiian culture just inspires the ultimate sense of CHILL. The pineapple…ahem CHERRY … on top of the trip, was the my visit to the Dole Planation, where I tried delicious pineapple ice cream and looked my very best in a bikini (haha get it? because I am a pineapple in the pic below)
  2. Grand Canyon just outside Las Vegas
    I did Grand Canyon independently the first time, and with a tour the second. I highly recommend the latter. There is so much to see, and it is pretty difficult not to get lost in the “awe” of it all during your visit. Also, the tour company packed an amazing snack box and provided comfy, festive blankies for when it gets nice and chilly at the Canyon.

  3. Disneyland in LA
    My first visit to Disney was as an adult, and I cried from accidental joy. Also, try the churros.
  4. Do everything in Phoenix!
    I love Phoenix, AZ. Like truly love it. The long highways and the tall palm trees are music to my soul. It’s home to the BEST BBQ joint in the universe (no exaggerations here) and huevos rancheros that will make your mouth taste like heaven. If you want to go to Phoenix, we need to CHAT.

The Best Restaurant in Phoenix, AZ

My boyfriend’s dad is one of those fantastic people who are able to scope out the BEST places anywhere in the world. It is thanks to him, I know about Bobby-Q. Since then, life has NOT been the same.

First off, Bobby Q is just plain cute, and kind of home-y. When you sit down, they start you off with some warm corn bread and butter – heaven. The menu is miles long, but I have my favorites. The brisket is to die for, and goes exceptionally well with the signature beer they serve. And then….there’s the sides. Roasted corn, potatoes, mac’n’cheese…SO GOOD. And when you are done your amazing, heavenly sent, finger licking meal…..they send you home with some cinnamon/brown sugar mini doughnuts. BRB, booking my flights to Phoenix.

Spanish Tomato Salad

Okay, I am by no means a food blogger or a chef, but I do LOOOVE food, so I thought I would share some of the highlights from my tummy.
