Last Tuesday, bright and early the Taster and I set out on our journey to California.

Starting in Wisconsin, we journeyed through Minnesota, South Dakota,Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and finally, California.

We experienced temperatures ranging from 95 to 30 and then back to 75 and sunny (LA).

We drove a lot.

But it was a blast.

We saw the black hills.

We saw Mt Rushmore.

We ate an amazing meal in Salt Lake City. (Thanks Janetha for the recommendation)

We stayed at a ski resort in Southern Utah. Mountains and snow!

We hiked at Zion National Park.

We went to Vegas.

And we ended up just where we are supposed to be. LA. :)

 Speaking of LA, I’m now in a different time zone. Would you guys prefer that I continue posting at 8am central time or doesn’t it make any difference? Let me know!

The Taster and I carpool everyday to work. Or, I guess I should say we did. But everyday for many months, as I drove to the Best Buy Corporate Headquarters I saw the process of a new restaurant and market being remodeled. Once it was open I had to stop in! I also needed masa

Monday started like most – with a yoga class. But then the similarities ended. It was a long day of traveling. I had my last work trip and so I’m currently down south in the land of shrimp and grits. For the record, I’m only allowing myself one meal of grits – do you know

restaurant: umami burger

One of the first stops in LA was Umami Burger. Obviously I have my priorities straight. It was my second trip to Umami and it definitely won’t be my last – the burgers are literally out. of. this. world. Just like our Minneapolis favorite, The Bulldog, the combinations are creative and the ingredients are of the
