We (The Mister, The Kid and I) attended the RISE Lantern Festival outside of Las Vegas at the dry lake bed located in Jean, NV. It was an awesome, breathtakingly beautiful sight.

The Mister was told that the CAL Ranch Store had chickens. Unfortunately, due to the summer heat, they were no longer selling them. The helpful cashier told us the chickies would be back in the fall. It's not like we were planning on buying any chickens but The Mister wants... Continue reading

I didn't really have a large list of things to see and do for this Oregon coast getaway except for the Tillamook Cheese Factory tour. I heart cheese, grilled cheese, cheesecake, cheese bread, cheese sticks and more cheese. My travel companions weren't as excited about the visit. But who cares?... Continue reading

There aren't too many Japanese markets around Las Vegas so I am thankful that we have Nakata Market. It's very small but stocked with the essentials such as furikake, umeboshi and Calpico (can't live without it). What! You don't know what Calpico is? Where have you been! Calpico is a...
