I have a bit of a confession to make, or another change that has happened recently. I am no longer a vegetarian. Yes, you read that right. So, here is a bit of an update on how I got to that point and back again which all started with bacon 18 years later.
For months I have wanted to try this place, it’s right next to my Trader Joes and I had always wanted to go in. Something always told me to wait for my Mom… so I did. My Mom apparently had the same feelings as I did. Well, last Saturday we were both finally together heading to TJ and it happened, we finally tried Thrive and boy we can’t wait to come back!
The 60 degree heat wave we had here in Michigan yesterday has me feeling tropical vibes again. Not that it really ever went away, but you better believe this girl was sporting some sandals and dreaming about that Peach Sangria from the Serenity Deck on Carnival Cruises. Which is why I am sharing a countdown of my 3 favorite drinks from the ship!
It’s almost the weekend so it’s a perfect time to talk about pastries. Not just any pastries, I’m talking about French pastries from L’Express by Bacchus. As soon as we passed this bakery I knew I was going to be doing a power walk to get myself a good authentic French croissant once the tour bus stopped.
Disney Springs has gotten so many changes over the last couple years, including new shopping, restaurants and gorgeous parking garages. Out of all of these new restaurants I couldn’t wait to stop by to see the new renovations they did to Portobello or as they now call it, Terralina.
Happy Friday lovelies! Today I wanted to spill some details all about my favorite food group, pizza. Yes, you read that correctly in my world pizza is a main food group and is a very serious subject. As someone who has spent time in Italy it’s actually raised my standards a lot on this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle loving food and made it pretty hard to meet my standards. Carnival has done a wonderful job in the pizza department and it has become one of my most favorite spots on the ships.
I’ve actually had the pleasure of visiting two HopCat locations over the years and have loved it every time. Ann Arbor was my first visit years ago and East Lansing was two years ago when I was in town for an event and I knew it was the best place to eat in that area. On my latest visit in Ann Arbor a week or two ago I decided it was finally time to blog about it.
