Travel Time x U Pick Farm x McDougal Farm in Springvale,ME

In about 46 minutes drive time from our Maine stay in Kennebunkport we landed upon Springvale,ME. The McDougal family Farm runs 7 generations deep! We sought after this farm due to its variety of U Pick Items , the Corn Maze, Hayrides ( we didn’t end up to go on ) and Fresh Cider and Donuts.

We took ourselves straight to the Corn Maze which had corn stalks taller than Jason !! It was a hot sunny day and I took a little break inside the maze to tan …

The beauty of a butterfly is something we loose site of in our busy lives. I can’t even tell you the last time I took a few minutes to just observe a butterfly hanging out and flying from flower to flower.

We picked so many things ! I really could have gone bananas and picked a zillion things but had to remind myself I was boarding a plane the following afternoon. We got a few honey crisps , a peach, a few little plums , fresh perfection raspberries , a butrernut squash and a pear.

Honestly this was my first raspberry but I figured if I was picking it I gotta try it. I haven’t had a plum in like 5 years do to my food allergies but just went for it and it was yummilicious!!

In the barn where you check out I got a local honey tube and squirted some into the raspberries! There are over 40 types of apples grown at the orchard !

Can you guess Jason’s favorite ?

We are feeling fall people!!! Xx Linz

Michigan Wolverines Big House Opener

Saturday September 9th the Michigan Wolverines took down the Cincinnati Bobcats!

We sat in Row 2 Section 3. I didn’t know it went A,B,1,2 at the Big House! Honestly if I’ve never been that close to the field before it! If anything i would have been standing up against the rail or on the 1st bench standing behind friends. Literally Not even for graduation did we get down that low. It was SO cool !!

This picture was taken while the Team!the Team!the Team ! Was running onto the field. As you can see im hardly able to contain my excitement and ah!!! the moment I got chant Hail to the Victors!

During the game they honored Michigan Men’s and Women’s basketball team . As well as a’ Veteran of the Game ‘who was a purple heart ,studied at undergrad Engineering school and received a Masters in Business . He was like 92!! They called out Tim Hardaway Jr too in the 3rd q.

We went to the presidential and reagents tailgate in Crisler Arena before the game.

We got this wolverine football dog collar for my new best bitch Luna Bonda!! Hail to her first game day.

Go blue !! 2 and 0!!

Travel Time x Sundaze x NYC

When you wake up on a Sunday in the lyfe of Linz odds are you have a stacked day prior to the early evening flight.

August 6 2017 it’s back to Detroit from New York City! Came to the city for the weekend to celebrate one of my best bitches Jaclyn G who is now in the 27 club.

We started our day with a stride to La Colombe for cold brew then made our way to The Egg Shop in a cool part of town about 10 minute walk away. Feeling like I was on speed from that crisp cold brew we ventured around the hood while waiting for our 2 top to be ready. Unlike Michigan I patiently wait for our turn to come up. That cold brew gives me ants in my pants so I said we were going on a selfie tour of the surrounding blocks in front of cool murals.

Lol if you happen to see this street art is on an apartment door… after 1 snap 2 Harvard b school kids walk out lol and offer to take our photo. Must be nice to have 2 hot girls show up at your door step ūüėā

#EggsYall made my brunch beyond what I had expected with my favorite watermelon radish on the menu .

Next up a trip to Broome St Cha Cha Matcha! Totally fascinated by the bold branding that makes the shop what it is and gets people in the door to check it out, love love love checking out and experiencing small shops like Cha Cha Matcha.

Shop til we drop attitude continues and we go to Lulu Lemon’s Lab and Intermix. I charge send my purchases and off to Soul Cycle NOHO

I left my phone at intermix so I have no sweaty #soulstyle pics to share . Shower, pack, change and time to jet to NOMAD for Kazunori!! Its been open since March in NYC with 3 other locations in LA. Hand Roll city we each ordered 5 rolls : toro,yellowtail,bay scallops, blue crab and Lobster!! We each did +1 yellow tail, mhm mhm mhm… !!!

Ordered uber and it arrived in full stank, idk why I always get the smelly ubers…. with too much time between uber arrival and take off I had him pull over to Cha Cha Matcha Broadway location …. Had to see both locations … clearly obsessed… !! This one I definitely prefer.

Being a pro travel gal with Clear, Pre check and sky priority it’s really a breeze getting to the gate and to your seat! Still with time to spare and a wet head I popped into Xpress Spa for a blow out. Pure Livin Like Lindsey .

Time to headed to the D – taking off xx

Travel Time x Nashville x Rolf and Daughters

Rolf and Daughters ¬†(aka RAD) is the creme de la creme you’ve absolutely got to get a reservation here if you are going to be going to Nashville ! ¬† We made our reservation for 2 people about 2 weeks in advance and luckily were able to snag a Friday Night reservation. My parents on the other hand who called 3 and half weeks in advance were not able to snag a ressi for their trip less than 1 month from mine.

Exterior Mural

We immediately fell in love with the cool mural on the exterior of the building, there was outdoor seating and a small waiting area right outside the front door.

Rolf and Daughters was recommended by my cousin whose a student at Vanderbilt and Thrillist.com. Address: 700 Taylor St, Nashville, TN 37208.  We took Uber from Omni Hotel which was more downtown. RAD is located in the hip and historic neighborhood called Germantown.  Google identifies RAD as an industrial-chic restaurant with clever New American dishes, communal tables & inventive cocktails.

We did not sit at the communal table however we did get quite friendly with the table next to us and our waitress. Everyone is extremely friendly !!
Earlier for lunch we went to the infamous Prince’s Chicken and my tummy wasn’t in the hottest shape. The waitress totally understood where i was coming from and her and the bar tender stirred up a life altering bitters and soda drink to cure my hot chicken pains.
The bread was fresh AF and made in house, along with their decadent seaweed butter. The smoothness of the butter was delightful on the hot fresh bread. 
I’m not the biggest Italian fan and rarely ever eat Pasta, but heard this was the spot to do it! ¬†We each ordered a pasta dish and both were UNREAL. ¬†Apparently their menu is seasonal and¬†always rotating, i can’t guarantee that either the Cacio e Pepe or the Mafalde will be available when you visit but if so …. DO IT.
