"Rosalita" by Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band

favorite trip ever taken

10 days in the American Southwest with mi madre -- Arizona to Utah with a stop at The Grand Canyon!

favorite outdoor smell
grill smoke

favorite way to spend a rainy day
under a comfy blanket with a cup of milky black tea and a book or movie

favorite hangover food
bacon, egg, and cheese on a wrap -- forever

favorite state I've visited but never lived in
Utah -- see above re: my American Southwest trip; I would go back to Utah in a heartbeat


  1. The Southwest is one of my favorite trips too. I can't get enough of the Grand Canyon!

  2. I've been making so much asparagus lately! I loved it roasted until it is almost burnt. And Gone with the Wind is amazing. Utah has never been on my must see list, but maybe I should ad it!

  3. Craving a breakfast wrap now and I'm not even hung over :) Great list of your favorites!

  4. Girl after my own heart. Rainy days and tea? Yes. GWTW? Yes.

  5. What a fun post! I think I need to plan a trip out west!

  6. Ah, I just got back from Scottsdale, AZ! I am ready to move there.

    GWTW, tea, books, steak-and-taters, Springsteen, vodka...some of MY favorites, too! :-)
