    Basta Pasta

    Happy Friday! I hope your week has been good so far. It’s been another busy week for me. Lots going on, people to see and hang out with, work to do, and a beach photoshoot with Lauren (which turned out great by the way!) but it’s been a pretty good week! Today I’ve got more work to do and some chores to do, but I’m hopefully seeing Spiderman: Far From home tonight so I’ll let you know what I think!

That combined with the excellent food has made this a restaurant that will stay in…

    Wedding Weekend Part 2 – Food

    When I’m traveling, I can’t help but take pictures of my food. Don’t ask me why, it just has to be done. While away for my friend’s wedding in the Chicago area for the weekend, I realized this would be a great opportunity for a food themed post about my weekend. It was a jam-packed weekend with things to do, so 2 meals were eaten at SugarToad at the hotel we were staying (Hotel Arista). Sometimes hotel restaurants are nothing to write home about, but we were all pleasantly surprised by the food there. While my friends all ordered brunch/breakfast foods, I decided on a bacon cheeseburger. Saturday night we were…
