To continue my anniversary weekend, my husband and I decided to visit the Dayton Flood Exhibit at the Dayton Art Institute and try Leo Bistro for the first time.
The exhibit was amazing and haunting – they did a great job of bringing the flood into perspective. I don’t remember [...]
I love shopping at the Second Street Market because it seems to go on and on for miles and all of the vendors inside are so unique and interesting. Megan and I went to the market one Saturday morning to stock up on items from our favorite vendors. I love visiting the Spice Rack because they [...]
My friend Tina reads my blog and one day when we were making lunch plans, she said “You’re always going to all of these adventurous places! I want to be adventurous, too!” So I said “How adventurous?” to which she replied “Whad’ya got?” And I explained that every night I pass Johnny’s Tortas and I’m [...]
I get off work at 9:00pm most Friday nights and by that time I could kill for a margarita so we naturally find ourselves at [...]
My sister, Beth, heard about an idea from her coworker to plan a surprise-filled day centered around a surprise theme for your family. So she told us (my mom, and Kayleigh, and me) to have $12 for her and to dress sort of nice and to be at her house around 12:30 (and [...]
I had heard many times that I needed to try Salsas in Riverside but after graduating from Wright State, I’m not in that area nearly as much. I think this might be changing soon because I finally tried Salsas and I think I’m hooked.

Below, my sister (Sad Robots) begins her guest blogging series entitled Lunch Downtown with her favorite lunch place, The Embassy. (To read them all, click here.)
Maybe you have jury duty. Or maybe you have to go to some lame corporate meeting. Or maybe you just have the genuine misfortune of having to work [...]
Having never been to the Greek Festival, I really didn’t know what to expect. Maybe some food, maybe some dancing, Greek beer? I don’t know.
What I found is that the Greek Festival = Food, and lots of it. Unfortunately, aside from the amazing pastry, pretty much everything had meat in it [...]
As a huge fan of Belmont Party Supply, I was excited to hear that they would be opening a sandwich shop next door. Stackers has a full menu of yummy sandwiches and wraps and I was happy to see that their sides (although deep fried) are at least fried in oil that [...]
Welcome!I love Dayton, I've lived here for all of my 26 years and don't plan on settling anywhere else. I started this blog as a way to showcase the best of Dayton (as seen through my perspective) and also to share some of the things that occupy space in my mind, namely beauty, home decor, quotes, and various aspects of my life.
