The Lookout, Playa del Coco, CR


It's called The Lookout for a reason - the view is unbeatable {hello double rainbow!} Overlooking Playa del Coco's lush greenery and ocean inlet from above paired with delicious food is a recipe for success! We went several times during our stay in Playa del Coco, enjoying the views, the Oysters, and the Craft Beers. Skip the lobster grilled cheese and order all of the yummy

Ziplining in Costa Rica


You MUST add ziplining to your bucket list if you're traveling to Costa Rica!!! I was terrified and it didn't help that the staff kept making jokes about us swaying up in the trees, but afterwards I was so happy that I didn't chicken out! Swinging through the forest with incredible views of the ocean is exhilarating. You can and must experience it!!! :D There are ziplining options

Driving from Playa Danta to Playa del Coco, CR


For the majority of the places we visited in Costa Rica, we easily found routes through Google Maps. I think because we visited bigger cities/touristy areas - we luckily only had a couple of SCARY times without service/maps. So here we are again traveling easily with Google {wee!} but I didn't expect the route to be so crazy! TIP: If you are heading from one Guanacaste

Lupe Tortilla, Houston, TX


Mexican food is my favorite but thanks to my corn allergy - I don't get to enjoy it anymore. Luckily for me, Lupe Tortilla has lots of corn-free {and delicious} options. If you're in the Houston area looking for some delicious Tex-Mex, you must check out this spot! I loved the Chicken Tocino {shown below} - 2 marinated grilled chicken breasts topped with bacon +

Cedar Creek Cafe is a little bit of Austin in Houston! Enjoy delicious bbq, drinks, and art on their awesome outside patio sitting next to {you guessed it, a creek}. It was pretty busy, but our food came out quickly and the weather was nice enough to enjoy the great outdoor atmosphere.

Midtown Houston, TX


Midtown was the place most recommended for us to visit in Houston, so we headed over for Sunday Funday! All of the restaurants and bars were packed and full of red, white, and blue for the Texan's Sunday NFL game. You can easily restaurant and barhop around as they are all walking distance from each other. Everyone was right... I liked this area a lot - a nice
