Houston foodie



We are just outside Houston but we love to venture around and explore the city and surrounding areas. I’m going to give you some of our favorite places !

I’m going to start with some perfect places for girls lunch/ brunch.

One of my favorite places is Bloom and Bee located in the Post Oak hotel. From the ceiling to the pink chairs, the view and the food this place is a must.

Their sangria is so yummy and full of flavor.

Their ceviche was so yummy and their salads were full of flavor. They have things on the menu for everyone.

Another place perfect after a day of shopping with the girls is Fig + Olive

The perfect place to share some appetizers and have a glass of rose.

Their crostini’s were so good and the perfect thing to try different kids of with your girls!

Another great super cute place to share things is Dunlavy

From the large amount of chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and their view this is the perfect place for photo ops.

But let’s not forget about their appetizers. Y’all we ordered a few different things and the uniqueness and tastiness of them were out of this world. Not to mention their mimosas were pretty yummy too.

Now a few places that are great for girls day, dates, and even family friendly.


I have been to brunch with my husband after staying downtown for a night. Their unique brunch and bloody Mary’s take basic things and make them EXTRA. And we all know I like things Extra.

Flaming hot Cheeto Bloody Mary and apple jack donuts!

Then when I took the kids for lunch after paw patrol live for desert we have the pop tart ice cream sandwich

Then one of our favorite places to stop when downtown is Little Matt’s

We love this place the food is basic things that would please everyone in the group. They have a few games in the back so I always give the kids some quarters. Their margaritas are so good and the kids usually finish off with an ICEE. The customer service and vibes make it a standout.

Another one of my favorite places for lunch with girls or kids that is more casual is Flower Child

A great place for a date night or special anniversary is Cureeight.

An 8 course tasting menu in The Woodlands. I love tasting menus for the variety and experience. This place is a little pricey and very intimate so reservations required.

If you venture to one of these recommendations I would love to hear about it! Or if you have a must in the Houston and surrounding areas I would love to hear.



Where the Dinosaurs roar

Family trips/ reviews

But have you ever been to where the dinosaurs lived?

Drumheller, Alberta, Canada is seriously the land of the dinosaurs or what’s left of them.

We flew into Calgary and made a stop over night I’m Drumheller before heading to Banff.

There is seriously soo much to do in this area. I wouldn’t recommend going on a Monday or Tuesday as some of the restaurants are closed because it’s their slow days.

We stayed at the Ramada. There isn’t a whole lot of hotel choices, but this is the best. Simply because it has an indoor pool and giant water slide. (Parent win)

The first night we ate at O’Shea’s Eatery whose parking lot was connected to the hotels so it was just a small walk.

We started our day at Royal Tyrrell Musem the kids had so much fun and even better there is tons of exploring that can done outside.

Following the museum we did some exploring outside then made our way to The worlds largest dinosaur .

It is fun and cute, but doesn’t take a whole lot of time. Just depends how long it takes you to climb 114 stairs.

We made a few stops at some smaller gift shops and fossil stores.

From there we went out to Rosedale suspension bridge and did some more hiking and exploring.

Then we stopped at Cafe ole

The s’mores chia latte was so yummy. It was cute and a quick place to grab a bite.

Some other options we looked at were closed. But, I would also recommend The asteroid

We also wanted to eat at Bernie and the boys bistro but they were closed as well.

Then our last stop and possibly one of my favorites was the The Hoodoos

We only saw a fraction of things that were to see and do there in our day before we headed on our 2.5 hour drive to Banff.

We started at the Musem and I had planned our day in this order because it made the most sense driving wise.

There is tons of other small shops, museums, helicopter tour, and more.

If you have the chance to visit Drumheller or have an extra day when in Calgary or near the area. I highly recommend making the visit you won’t be disappointed.

Stay tuned for my travel guide on Banff next. We spent 5 days there and crammed as much sightseeing as we could in.



If you have any questions I would love to hear them. Or if you have been there what’s your favorite thing you saw?
