Hello my loves! First of all, let me tell you that I have missed you all so much. I can’t wait to share recipes with you soon!

As you probably know Tony and I headed to Australia to spend time together and attend one of my best friend’s wedding. I already miss the bright blue water and silky smooth sand on my toes. The smell of the ocean, too.

We took a flight from Chicago to LA, then headed to Sydney. Our travel time was long and draining, but we flew Qantas which I highly recommend! Our flight was fairly comfortable, and we especially loved the service, free snacks, and safety. The inside of the plane was gorgeous, too. What are your favorite airlines?

1888 hotel - Sydney, Australia

When we arrived in Sydney, we checked into the 1888 Hotel. It’s a small boutique hotel and overall we really enjoyed it! Our room was beautiful, bright and clean; everything we could have hoped for.

One of my best friends is moving to Washington this weekend so this shout out is just for her: I’ll miss you Laura. I’ll miss Tibet Kitchen, our Rojo dinner dates, and even hard boiled egg whites. By the way, I’m so proud of you.

Can’t wait to visit!

We recently had a team meeting and had this for apps. It was nothing short of delicious.

During our meeting we made homemade pasta, grilled chicken, salads, and lemon olive oil cakes. I was FULL to say the least.

Have you tried this stuff? My favorite granola is usually honey and oats or ANYTHING pumpkin flavored.

Isn’t it obvious I love pumpkin from the bottom of my heart?

This past weekend I attended Mixed Conference, my very first food blogging conference. OH.MY.GOODNESS it was full of food, fun, and new friends! Huge shout out to Lucky Leaf for sponsoring me to attend!

I began my trip with a short pit stop for a few days in Boston where I was visiting a friend from Australia. We had the best time; I can’t wait to share more photos with you soon! After that I jetted to Roanoke, VA in a tiny plane. A little frightening, but I made it! From there we took a shuttle to Mountain Lake Resort & Hotel, where the movie Dirty Dancing was filmed. The original movie was filmed before I was born, so I was a little clueless but whatever… if there’s food, I’m there.

When I arrived there was a huge pile of Hershey’s candy on my bed. I wanted to throw them in the trash (for obvious reasons) but decided to eat all of the ones with fillings because that seemed like a compromise. You know because not eating all of the candy is excusable in some weird way… it’s kind of like when you tell people, ‘well I only had half of my giant double cheeseburger’. Okay and plus, peppermint patties and Reese’s peanut butter cups are dear to my heart.
