So. Grand Rapids. This city has been doing the most lately. Every time you turn around there’s a new brewery/restaurant/distillery/apartment complex. AND I LOVE IT! You definitely need a lunch date almost weekly to keep up with all the new places popping up!

BUT. Let’s focus for a minute on a place near and dear to my heart. Donkey Taqueria. It opened in 2013, and although it probably took me a few years to discover it, I am now fully obsessed. The flautas de pollo. The chorizo y poblano taco. THE PRICKLY PEAR MARGARITA.

Ever since meeting my (now) fiance, I have had the pleasure and privilege of being able to travel to Traverse City, MI with the Duba ladies. I looooove spending these weekends wine tasting, antiquing (Trisha’s favorite (not really, she hates it) ), and forgetting about real life as we lounge on the beach at Aunt Lolo’s house right on East Bay. This past January, I had a long weekend off work, and decided to take a trip to TC with the Duba’s and a good friend of mine.

On a recent trip to Las Vegas, we did everything you would expect on a trip to Sin City. Party bus, pictures under the Welcome to Las Vegas sign, an excessive amount of drinking, lounging by the pool, and gambling (we got in as much as possible). However, we also did one thing that may not be expected. We went hiking! About 20 minutes outside of the Strip, there is great hiking at Red Rock Canyon. We hiked the Calico Tanks trail. Shared our trek below!

I am in stout opposition to setting “New Year Resolutions.” Actually, I’m am much more opposed to people whose New Year resolution is to join a gym, and now for a good month or so, I can’t find a spot at the Y to do my hiit cardio. Hashtag first world problems. I do however, believe in reflecting on myself as a person and seeing what I can accomplish to better myself, my happiness and my family.
