Did a quick birthday weekend getaway to Savannah, GA with my baby girl. Wonderful southern city with tons of history. Just visiting all the squares of the Historic District could keep you busy for a few days, but this was a whirlwind weekend…so we did the best we could! The majestic live oaks with their Spanish Moss filled branches line the streets of Savannah. The monuments adorning the historic squares, Oglethorpe, Forsyth,Chatham,Monterey,Madison,Telfair, Pulaski tell the story of Savannahs’ antebellum past… Even city hall is special here. We dined at a restored southern mansion called The Olde Pink House.. We had … Continue reading Savannah…easy

What can you do in 24 hours in Las Vegas? Visit downtown Vegas on Fremont street where the slots and tables are looser than the strip. Get a massage at the El Cortez for 1/2 the price of the big spas. Check in at Caesar’s Palace for an Anniversary night stay courtesy of my wonderful daughter. Gamble a bit more than we should. Enjoy a fantastic French dinner at Bouchon Restaurant at the Venetian Hotel with complementary champagne to toast the occasion. Look into my husband’s eyes and see 30 years of our lives…Feel blessed. .. Continue reading Vegas Whirlwind, part 2

Having a blast with family in Las Vegas and livin’ large in Summerlin. An afternoon of gambling gave way to an awesome dinner at T-Bones at Red Rock Casino. The beautiful entryway belies the extravagance within! A seafood tower of epic proportions whets our appetites for the main event. Awesome! A 42 oz. bone-in T-bone steak a la Fred Flintstone is a real eye popper. OMG! Roasted veggies and a wonderful bread basket with house made goodies enhance our experience. A big thank you to my dear cousin, Mike for showing us the real Vegas….. Continue reading High “Steaks” at Red Rock

Since this is primarily a FOOD and Travel Blog, just couldn’t leave off some dining advice for Sedona. First, do stop in to have breakfast or lunch at Miley’s Cafe on Hwy 179 about 6.5 miles from downtown Sedona. Best Huevos Rancheros north of Jalisco and service so fast and efficient you’ll be amazed. Second, don’t miss Cafe Elote also on Hwy 179, but much closer to downtown. This was my second visit to Elote, I actually ate there 7 years ago and it was every bit as good as the first time! Look past the rather funky entrance, (steel … Continue reading Road Trip…more day 4
