Friday Faves Vacation-ish Addition

Hey Guys! Happy Friday to ya! My apologizes for lack this week. Traveling, company, and my first of two final projects is due this week has me a bit lacking. Plus I am trying to soak up as much of this vacation-ish trip as possible. I say ‘vacation-ish’ because it is really a work conference trip for DC, we aren’t here alone, plus we’ve had family visit us. At the beach always counts as a bit of a vacation right? So to wrap this week up I had to make sure to post what is probably my favorite of all posts Friday Faves……

Larabar Mint Chip Brownie

Okay, so I don’t know if this is a new flavor or just new to me flavor but it is amazing! My mom brought so bunch of Larabars and these Larabar Bar Mint Chip Brownie were among the bunch. When I saw the word mint I knew I had to try it first! It is even better than I thought it would be! This bar plus coffee is everything!

All the Mexican Food!


Mexican food is always a favorite but it man it is a love right now! Let me explain. We lived in the Azores for two years. They had one terrible (I mean terrible like Taco Bell is wayyy better) Mexican restaurant on the whole island. Now we have lived in Japan for over two years and they just don’t have the Mexican cuisine down either. So, when we travel back to the U.S. we want to make sure we get our Mexican fix in because it is will be last for awhile. This same scenario goes for frozen yogurt!

The Beach


I could live on the beach! I loved living on an island for two years. I would have loved to have lived there longer if it was not so small (the whole island was 8 miles by 15 miles). The ocean simply amazes me. Just looking out at the forever ocean and seeing the vastness of it. Plus listening to the waves just brings a whole calm over me.

I need to steal these looks!

Question: What calms you? What food do you love? Any new snack bar finds that I need to know about while I am in the States?

    Your family is adorable! Glad y’all are enjoying your trip! Running and dog walks calm me 🙂
    My favorite snack bars are Luna Bars! The lemon ones are so good.

    Your son is looking so cute and innocent. It is like he wants to give some pose in front of the camera and that too by standing on his own feet.
