Adventuring in Mexico: Tacos Salceados and Popotla
March 10th, 2016Cheap Eats, Mary, Mexico, TravelMary 10 Comments

Last weekend Jake and I made our first international trip together to Mexico! We applied for our passports in mid-February and were surprised at how quickly we got our passports. My folks were going down to Rosarito and we joined them in their sweet condo rental. Jake and I drove separately since we had to come back to the US on Sunday and we met my folks in Tijuana for lunch.

I was a bit apprehensive about going to Mexico since most …

[review] hidden garden cookies
March 7th, 2016Mary, productsMary 2 Comments

I was recently asked if I wanted to review some new cookies. These are “sneaky” veggie cookies called Hidden Garden Cookies. Each cookie has different vegetables “hidden” inside of them so you are eating something healthier while also eating cookies! They are also gluten free! I agreed to try the product out and they sent me a few complimentary bags of cookies to try. I brought them into the office so my co-workers could also give a little bit of …

TIABI Coffee & Waffle Bar: Our last meal in Vegas

And now… for my last Vegas post! After some “just okay” dinner at a Chinese place called China Mama (which we visited last time) and some gambling (I finally played roulette – and won!), we hit the hay late in the evening and were surprisingly up at a reasonable hour on Sunday morning. We gathered our stuff and prepared to get out of dodge on the early side – before most folks were even starting to stir.

After check-out, we headed …

blue ribbon fried chicken + shake shack in vegas
February 26th, 2016Las Vegas, Mary, TravelMary 8 Comments

I was really on the fence about trying Shake Shack. I thought the only location was on the Strip at the NY NY Casino and I had very, very little desire to head all the way down the Strip just for a burger. Shake Shack had been taken off the list until Jake and I went to Summerlin for lunch to try Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken… and then I saw the Shake Shack literally across the road in the same …

lulu’s bread & breakfast + hiking in red rock canyon in vegas

Jake and I spent a lazy day at the hotel after we got into Vegas. We had plans to go out and do Fremont Street and the like… but ended up just watching TV or staring out of our cool 26th story window. Sometimes you just need a night of doing nothing to kick off your vacation! The next morning we were up and about and headed out to breakfast far, far away from the strip at a little place …

viva las arepas + the $20 trick in las vegas
February 22nd, 2016Cheap Eats, Las Vegas, Mary, TravelMary 6 Comments

Last weekend Jake and I took a little trip to Las Vegas. We took Friday off so we could head up and enjoy a full weekend in Las Vegas. I tried the “$20 Trick” at our hotel, too! More on that later. First… Venezuelan food from a little spot called Viva las Arepas.

Viva las Arepas is located just north of the Stratsophere hotel (can you see it peeking through in the upper left corner?) in a little strip mall. It was about …

rough draft brewing company

Rough Draft is a brewing company that is very close to my office. I’d only been once before since I’m not much of a beer drinker but they recently started offering food. This meant I had to visit a couple of times to get a feel for their menu. All in the name of research!

Rough Draft is located off of a small street at the end of a cul-de-sac, surrounded by office buildings. They have outdoor seating and are a …
