I never learn. I obviously never learn, right? I get all overeager and suddenly I’m in the middle of another crock-pocalypse. Last year I went to 25 Degrees, the burger place at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. I took pictures and intended to blog it, but was so overwhelmed by the portions (particularly the burger size) that looking at the pictures made me sick.

Even though he drove, he didn’t know where we were going– I set his GPS and told him to follow its instructions. Bwahahaha. I was … Continue reading Snack Track: Mr. Tea’s Wild Ride
The first two reusable snack bags were successful, but I realized that I often use more than just two bags when I pack my lunch. So I turned back to the internet for more bags. MORE! MORE! (Actually just two.) I decided to branch out and try another brand. This time I chose snackTAXI, because their designs are so cute! My PB Green Bags have … Continue reading (More) Snack Sacks!
