Last month I wrote about my Try the World Paris Box. Try the World is a fun food subscription box that uses different cities or countries from around the world as themes for their bimonthly boxes. I really liked the box I got last time although I wasn’t sure it was worth the $39 price tag. I decided to try a few more boxes though because I think the concept is really nice and I love discovering new foods from around the world. My latest box was the Try the World Holiday Box, which was packed with 8 holiday foods that all look amazing.
When we visited Washington DC this summer we checked out all the main sites: the National Mall, Georgetown, a couple of the Smithsonian museums, and Ford’s Theatre. But looking back at our pictures from the day we spent downtown, it seemed like most of our trip revolved around eating food. We had a couple of places in mind to eat at when we wandered into the city but we ended up grabbing most of our meals from whatever restaurant we were closest to when we got hungry. We found quite a few fun places so here’s a recap of our food tour of DC.
When we visited Washington DC earlier this summer, I asked a few people for advice on what to see and where to go and I got a couple of suggestions for Georgetown. It was described as a quaint area of DC with lots of fun shops. Immediately, Georgetown Cupcake popped into my head. I consider myself a bit of a sweets connoisseur (really I’m just a fan of anything filled with sugar) and I’ve heard for years how amazing Georgetown Cupcake is. Sure, Georgetown sounded like a nice place to take a stroll, but I was really interested in the cupcakes. Luckily we were able to fit in a quick visit before heading to the National Mall and I got to see what all the fuss was about.
Last week, I took my grandma to the Queen Creek Olive Mill for a blogger tour and tasting. My parents love the Olive Mill and I had been once before and really liked it (Stacie posted about our first trip here). I was so excited to hear about the event and even more excited that it was held on one of my days off.
When Stacie invited me to Nashville, I only had two things I wanted to do: try to find some Consider The Wldflwrs jewelry (which was a success) and get some breakfast at Pancake Pantry. Stacie had written about the restaurant before and it sounded so good that I had to try it for myself. When we arrived there was a line halfway down the building. Stacie was nice enough to wait in line while I went to BookManBookWoman, a book store across the street.
I’ve written before about my Graze boxes and how much I enjoy them (see my other reviews here) and for my latest Graze review I’m talking about three of my latest boxes. What’s better than getting healthy, interesting snacks delivered to your door every couple of weeks? I’ve been really happy with the service and I love how much customization I have with my boxes! I have a lot of control over which snacks I’m sent and how often I receive boxes, and I can change any of that at any time. I love having prepackaged, tasty snacks that I can grab and take with me. They’re so convenient for taking to work, on trips, or even to just throw in your bag in case you get hungry. I’ve received quite a few boxes at this point so I’m really able to narrow down which snacks I want to get. I still get a few duds (I have several snacks rated as try just to see if I like them, a lot of times I don’t) but for the most part I’m happy with my snacks. One of my recent boxes included quite a variety of snacks: Billionaires’ Shortbread, Tropical Daiquiri, Lemon Drizzle Flapjack, and Brooklyn Bites.
