tid + bits


Some TID + BITS from my life this week... 


+Did you guys hit up Bijou last weekend here in Utah County?! I go every single time :) I picked up some great stuff this year, like these adorable earrings made by Made by Jewls LOVE THEM! Check her out.

+We got homemade honey form some friends. You read that right, HOMEMADE! Can honey be homemade you ask? Well I guess you can count it as homemade if they got it from their brother's own beehive! I absolutely hate bees, but having tons of honey in your own back yard on hand is pretty appealing I must say. Can't wait to get this stuff on some toast, with peanut butter of course!

+Have you all heard of Cafe Rio? It is a-ma-z-i-n-g.... if I am being honest I only think it is amazing on Saturdays. I love their Fried Cancun Shrimp Tacos, they are worth dying for really. Anyways, tangent... Trevor and I heard they had made an Italian version of Cafe Rio, so we went and tried it out. It was okay. I wouldn't say I was super impressed, probably won't go back again, but my pasta was yummy!

+My dear friend Tearsa went to Vegas and got herself hitched! Her family through her and her new hubberz an open house here in Utah. I seriously love Tearsa to death, she is one of those people I had an instant connection with when I met her, and the friendship was just easy. So easy that we have stayed in touch since we met at a church camp back when we were only, what, 15 or 16? She was living in Germany at the time, moved back to Brazil where she was born and we stayed in touch, and probably got even closer as time went on. We both ended up in Utah and our friendship got even better. She is now in California, LUCKY BUTT! haha Anyways, I am really happy for her and Tony, he is THE sweetest guy ever :)

+At their open house one of her Brazilian friends brought some Pao de Quejio - Brazilian Cheese Bread. We are talking warm, just out of the oven, amazing cheese bread. I think I need to eat one of these every day of my life... no joke.

  3. This post makes me miss Utah. Mainly because you mentioned Cafe Rio. We have Cafe Rio here in Virginia now, but it's just not the same. Kind of like how you think Cafe Rio is only amazing on Saturdays! I haven't tried their tacos yet and I loooove shrimp! That'll be next on my list :) So happy for your friend Tearsa!

  13. I was wondering if anyone else knew what that brazilian bread was! haha My husband went to Rio on his mission & I found a pinterest recipe for Pao de Quejio, wondering if it was any good. I'll give it a try since you gave it a thumbs up. :)

  35. I love fresh local honey! It's good for people with allergies too. You should try to get some honey comb from them...delish!

  36. I was reading your blog and noticed that you were born in Alberta - me too! Edmonton, to be exact, but I moved to Connecticut 6 years ago for grad school. And, even more small worldish, I was like an inch away from moving to Utah this summer.
