For my 30th birthday, the only thing I wanted to do, besides celebrate with family and friends, was to go somewhere new. My best friends Sasha and Dee planned the perfect day in Bodega Bay which was full of food, sun, relaxation, and beautiful views.
So May was a busy month for eating. After my trips to Italy (which I have yet to write about), Texas, and most recently New York, I’m scaling back on the food and indulging in some exercise but if you know me I definitely don’t deprive myself of the sweets! The last week of the month I went to New York again for work but this time my cousin joined me. This was her first trip to New York so she got to play tourist during the day while I worked and then we would meet up for breakfasts or dinners. I also got to visit with my good friend from college and my other cousin and the weather was pretty good. We were spared from the rain and we dined. Here are all the delicious things I ate.
In mid-May, my family went down to Dallas, Texas for my nephew’s first birthday and baptism. My sister-in-law’s family is from there and so we decided to have all the festivities there in one weekend. I had never been to Dallas before or anywhere in the South and of course I’m always down to explore someplace new. Here’s what happened.
