Hi. I missed you. We are in need of some quality time together, don’t you think?

I arrived home from Australia on Sunday. You guys, it was one of the best trips I’ve ever been on; Tony (my boyfriend) and I had such an amazing time! Don’t worry; I’ll be sharing all of my photos and details of my trip soon. For now, I’m busy getting caught up at work, unpacking suitcases, and catching up on sleep.

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you a fun event I’m taking part of: Avo Awards by Avocados from Mexico! With Hollywood’s Big Night coming up on March 2nd, Avocados from Mexico is creating a fun event on their Facebook page.

So what is it, you ask?

Some of my favorite avocado recipes are going up against three other bloggers in a friendly Facebook competition. It’s super easy to vote for your favorite recipes in the Avo Awards by visiting Avocados from Mexico’s Facebook page February 21-March 5.
