    September 26, 2021

    If I told you that there was a business conference held at an adult summer camp, would you think I was crazy or be very excited? Enter Camp Indie, the world’s most fun conference, according to the website. I might be biased, and I haven’t been to all the conferences in the world, but look,…

  • Seaside, Florida Travel Guide

    July 24, 2021

    I’d never really even heard of Seaside before going there (on a “work retreat” aka a vacation with my coworkers). I live by the beach, so I don’t have a ton of people wanting to vacation with me to a different beach, and if I’m going to Florida, I’m going to Orlando (Harry Potter, anyone?).…

  • 13 Things That Are Always On My Travel Packing List

    May 20, 2019

    I am forever scrambling at the last minute to try and figure out if I’m forgetting anything. I’ll make a travel packing list, and then make several others as I thought of things but didn’t have my original list within reach. Even after all that, I usually end up forgetting something.

  • Chicago Must: Gluten Free Donuts

    May 19, 2019

    If you’re gluten free like I am, then a huge Chicago must is getting gluten free donuts at Do Rite Donuts. I can’t vouch for their regular donuts, obviously, but I can tell you that they’re always busy and they look fantastic. The gluten free ones, however… excuse me while I go drool over the…

    May 10, 2019

    My best friend Meagan and I had big plans to get up early, get donuts, catch the Bean at sunrise, grab breakfast, and go ice skating – all before noon. You can stop laughing now. What actually happened was closer to the usual: we slept in a little bit, took our time getting ready, gossiped as…

  • ice skating and red robin: Chicago travel guide

    January 24, 2016

    After we got donuts at Do Rite, we went back to Meg’s place for a second, and then went ice skating. It did not go so well for my best friend (we found out a week or so later that she’d broken her arm when she fell). We decided to go to the lessons the…

  • Lou Malnati’s pizza: Chicago travel guide

    January 14, 2016

    This is a double review of Lou Malnati’s, since I’ve had pizza from them twice on one vacation. Meagan ordered from Lou’s maybe a week before I came to visit. She texted me, excited that they had a gluten free menu, and then confused because they had the usual disclaimer that the pizza is finished…

  • San Francisco: Travel Guide

    August 21, 2015

    I went to visit my best friend in California this summer (at some point, I’ll post last year’s Louisiana pictures / trip information…). It was the first part of August, and she was then living in Modesto. I flew into San Jose, rented a car (from Avis this year), and made the lovely drive to…
