I kinda feel like I won the blogger’s lotto.
One week from TODAY I’ll be on a plane, heading down to the Food & Wine Festival in Ixtapa-Zihuatanej. I kind of want to scream and jump up and down. again. I’ve heard the MOST amazing things about Ixtapa and love that it’s practically just a hop, skip, jump away. Thank you Alaska Airlines for making it so easy.
So why am I going to Mexico? Well… I will be attending as the official blogger correspondent, which basically means I’ll be blowing up your twitter, facebook & instagram feeds with loads yumminess and beautiful things.
I’m beyond excited to meet celebrity Chefs Michael Symon [Iron Chef. OMG.] and Marcus Samuelsson [Brilliant!] and wine expert Mark Oldman [Wine EXPERT = My hero]. These guys will be joining Mexican celebrity Chefs who [I have a very good feeling] will win me over. . . and put me in a food coma.
I’d pack you in my bag, but figured if I were to bring ONE person [the Mr. has to work] it would be.. my mama. Yep, it’s me and mom, heading to Mexico to eat yummy food, drink delicious wine and share all the awesomeness with all of you. You ready for this?! Good, let’s do this.
If you’re thinking, “I need a vacation that involves food + wine. and…. Grandparents offered to babysit. Should I?”
