Haggis, Neeps and Tatties

People ask me all the time if I have ever tried haggis. Yes, I have not only tried it, but I actually really enjoy it (insert cringe faces from my friends back home)! Do I think about what is in it and that the FDA still hasn’t given it’s stamp of approval in the states?… Read More Haggis, Neeps and Tatties

Gaudi, Messi and Sangria

Gaudi, he was an interesting dude. Devoted his life to his work, stopped showering and gave up on love. Or perhaps love gave up on him given his devotion to his work and not his hygiene. Anyway, Scott and I enjoyed the land of Gaudi recently by visiting Barcelona for my birthday weekend. We toured… Read More Gaudi, Messi and Sangria

Paris is always a good idea, you betcha!

Recently I went to two of the most romantic and magical places. The city of lights and the cheesehead capital of the world! That’s right, Paris and the midwest of the United States of America. The similarities were endless. Arc de Triomphe Mall of America Both have architectural masterpieces. The Louvre The Lego store I… Read More Paris is always a good idea, you betcha!

The Wheels on the Bus

Can we please talk about double decker buses? I love them so much. And it doesn’t matter that it’s been two years since I have moved to the UK, the novelty hasn’t worn off. Public transportation is a huge part of my life in Scotland, because the novelty of driving stick shift on the left… Read More The Wheels on the Bus

Hen do, Hen don’t

Hen parties. They are like Bachelorette Parties, but for some reason they like to be associated with poultry. Men are stags, which I think are far more attractive than hens, but I don’t make the rules. Because if I did…then I would suggest women being does. You know doe a deer, a female deer. I… Read More Hen do, Hen don’t

Fringetastic

It’s Fringe time in Edinburgh! This is a festival that lasts all of August, which basically means you don’t sleep, drink too much and spend a lot of money. I guess like any other month. Except for two little words…Guru Dudu. The best hour of your life. No, he’s not related to George Jetson. He’s a… Read More Fringetastic

Keep Calm and London On

I was back in London Town this past weekend (casual hair flip) and per usual, it was fabulous. Scott and I went down for a friends reunion for about 36 hours. It was a sans kiddos weekend. And when your friends who have kids, are without their kids, everyone reverts to being 20. We are… Read More Keep Calm and London On

What, like it’s hard?

One of the hardest things about moving abroad is leaving your girls! And not to gloat, but I have kickass girfriends. Exhibit A: My bridesmaids Meeting good girlfriends after the age of 25, in my opinion, is not easy. Add in the “I’m not from around here” sign tattooed on my forehead and it makes… Read More What, like it’s hard?

The Greatest Game Ever Played

Said only Shia LaBeouf and well that’s not a reliable source. Golf and I have a love-hate relationship. I appreciate that golf is a sport that takes a great deal of skill, discipline and encourages long naps on Sunday. But it is very slow, takes hours to play and four days for someone to actually… Read More The Greatest Game Ever Played
