Travel: Tulip Festival, Lehi Utah

  While attending SNAP! we were given a complimentary ticket to visit the annual Tulip Festival that is held every year at the Thanksgiving Point Gardens. A lot of people passed up the opportunity to go; however, I couldn't resist! I absolutely LOVE tulips and its a rarity that I ever get to see them in Florida.

I will add that I do get to see them when we go to the Flower … [Read more...]

Lowe’s Designer Challenge at SNAP!

SNAP! 2013 Recap

When I walked off the plane and into the Salt Lake City airport this is the view I saw... I was a little taken back. We don't have mountains in Florida (obviously), and to be honest... I can't recall the last time I saw mountains--maybe when I was 4? This was my official welcome to Utah... and to SNAP! 2013! I missed getting a ticket to SNAP! when they first went on sale back in September. I was filming my first nationally syndicated cooking segment at the same time tickets went on sale. I … [Read more...]

Instagram Inspired Door at SNAP! 2013

First off, I apologize for being MIA all week. I have a very good reason. I've been enjoying the past few days from blog friends near and far at SNAP! in Utah. I'm rooming with Melissa from No. 2 Pencil and Kristin from Yellow Bliss Road. A few weeks ago it was announced that there would be a door decorating contest at SNAP! If your a blogger and you've ever prepared to leave for a conference you know that there are endless chores that need to be completed before going on vacation none-the-less … [Read more...]
