I woke up this morning to find out that the Flourishing Foodie was nominated for Best Original Recipes in the Fifth Annual Saveur Best Food Blog Awards. Words can't even begin to describe how excited I am. It is such an honor to be nominated with so many fantastic friends, who continually inspire and amaze me with their creativity. I would be so thrilled if you voted for the Flourishing Foodie. (The polls close April 9th). I have updated the site with a fancy new voting link on the right side bar, or you can follow the link here. I want to thank all of you for your support. xo
We arrived here last Saturday morning after a series of flights, lay-overs, and bus rides. So far, I've spotted some little monkeys out the window of our hotel. There are these tiny adorable bright green birds that flutter in the trees at night. We are going to see the sea turtles on the beach tomorrow morning at 6am, and I'm pretty sure that I'm not going to be as chipper as I am right now, because 6am is a crazy time to be awake on holidays. There is LOTS of delicious guacamole and plantain chips, and an endless supply of margaritas. Seriously, I am not kidding. I have this weird splotchy sun burn on my arms and legs where my sun screen had smeared away, and I TOTALLY PREDICTED THAT WOULD HAPPEN. My cousin is getting married tomorrow and I am going to have to apply an even lay of cover-up to my arms. There is no other way around it.
