Take a look at this food blogger’s visit to Austin, Texas: the Indulge Conference, bats, food, and family.
It’s a good thing Minnesota is the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”. It takes a good 2-3 mile walk around one of them to counter the effects of the 10,000 restaurants, and I’m pretty sure that is only counting Minneapolis!
Last weekend we spent a little over 24 hours in Minneapolis visiting my son’s girlfriend. She lives in the LynLake neighborhood, a young, vibrant area just south of downtown. Parking is pretty scarce, but once you find a spot, you can walk to whatever you want to see, do or EAT!
It’s one of my favorite times of year. Yesterday marked the first day that produce vendors line the streets of downtown Des Moines just hours after Court Ave announced last call. After the cold winter months, the various food tents are a welcome sight, and I wasted no time in making what was the first of many summer trips to the downtown area. It’s Farmer’s Market season!
I woke up this morning to three wonderful things: a hot cup of coffee, a gorgeous sunrise, and a picture of Mike Matheny on espn.go.com/mlb!
My girlfriends talk about Kenny Chesney, Justin Timberlake, and Matt Damon. Don’t get me wrong … these are handsome men. But there is something about a man in a white uniform who can own a baseball cap.
In case I have lost you, Mike Matheny is the manager of my beloved St. Louis Cardinals. And don’t worry … my husband knows all about my crush. I like to make him and my boys roll their eyes when a game is on and I hush them whenever the camera crew gets a shot of Mike.
