Friday Feedings

Amelia isn’t here yet but my sleep schedule is definitely getting ready for her. Since we went to the beach last week I have been wide awake at 1:30 in the morning – which is when I wrote this post earlier this week (sorry John if the bright lights kept you up). I finally finished …

Friday Feedings

Where have I been? Well about that… Yup the Hall family is continuing to grow. 2 parents, 2 babies, and 3 dogs – now all we need is a partridge in a pear tree. We find out in a little over a month if it’s a boy or girl…any guesses?

San Diego

Okay I know I went to San Diego over a month ago but between traveling, holidays, and baby – let’s face it I am a little strapped for time and “baby brain” is in full effect. Who goes to San Diego and brings only their cell phone to take pictures? Oh ya this mama! But …

Traveling in July

Despite being overly tired lately due to all the traveling I have gotten to eat at some pretty amazing places. First stop was Chicago to celebrate the 4th of July. It didn’t compare to the feast we had on New Years in Chicago but I was super excited about eating at Giuliana & Bill Rancic’s RPM …

Louisville round 2

I traveled to Louisville about a year ago to meet up with a best friend of mine since childhood and her beautiful little girl. And a year later I returned. This time John and I were fortunate enough to go to the Kentucky Derby this year along with his sister AK and her boyfriend Daniel. You might be thinking …

YATS

After church on Sundays if I haven’t done our grocery shopping we try and find a little hidden gem to go eat at. One afternoon we were driving home and we saw YATS, a Cajun Creole restaurant. John of course was elated because the last time we have had some great cajun food was when we were in New Orleans back …

Time for Vacation

John and I arrived in Seagrove, FL early Sunday morning to meet my parents for our beach vacation that I have literally been counting down the days until. My dad knows where my heart lies when one of the first few things he asks me is where do I want to go to eat this week? Now normally …

Sundays in the Kitchen

We got back from Seagrove, FL yesterday with my family and it was a much needed vacation. Look forward to hearing about all the yummy meals I had when we went down there; oh and yes there was the ocean and beach but let’s be honest the food was 60% of what I was looking forward to. …

Capri

About two and half years ago I got the opportunity of a lifetime to visit John in Italy while he was studying abroad. I fell in love with the culture, the wine and especially eating and learning about the cuisine. From this experience John and I became very picky about Italian restaurants. In Birmingham we …

Brugge Brasserie

The other night I got a craving for mussels. Now some people have had mussels but they have to really be in the right kind of broth for them to surpass your expectations and leave you wanting more. The first time I had them was when I went to visit John in Italy. They were …

Louisville

One of the great things about living in Indianapolis is the location, now I am not talking about the luxury of living downtown but how many cities are within driving distance. You have Chicago that is 3 hours away, Cincinnati that is 2 hours away, and Louisville which is a little over 2 hours. A …

National Championship

I went a couple of weeks ago with John’s family to New Orleans to cheer on the Crimson Tide. As most of you know I am a die hard Auburn fan, but who would give up a chance to see a National Championship game in person as well as eat some incredible food? And that …

Travel

I would love to travel the world. If I could travel all over the world I would love to! Going to Italy was the best experience of my life and then all the amazing scenery and food from our honeymoon. I love food and wine, learning about different cultures, and taking pictures. John and I …
