Spending some time in Houston? Check out what we did and the food we tried! Turkey Legs, Tacos, BBQ, Cider, rollercoaster, shopping and more!


Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of taking a trip to Houston and Galveston!

This was my first time in Texas, and I had an absolute blast!

We stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Downtown Houston. It was conveniently located near restaurants, bars, stadiums and more! I always stay at Hilton hotels, and Hampton is one of my favorites! The complementary breakfast was great and the room was clean and comfy. We opted for valet parking after the lots pricing was inflated due to sporting events downtown.

One place that should be on this list, but we didn't get to see is the Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park. It was closed for maintenance the day we tried to visit, but I will defintely check it out during my next visit.

Of course, time flew by and we didn't get to do as much as we wanted, but this is a glimpse of what we explored. Food is always most important and we loved every bite of what we tried!

I'm in pure comfort food mode right now.

The weather has been ridiculously cold and snowy here in Minnesota and I want all the carbs while I'm cooped up in the house waiting very patiently for spring to arrive!

Madeleines. Such sweet, little bites of goodness.

My first experience with madeleines was not very glamourous. No amazing French bakery, just a package from the "bakery" at Target.
