Cabo Fish Taco & Figure Skating!


My brother and Karlee are back on the road towards D.C. and that means no more vacation time for me. Back to blogging, and work before my trip to Maine and New York in nine days! I’m going to spend the day shipping out packages and getting everything planned out and organized for the the trip.  We are going to pack snacks for the trip and mark spots on the map to stop and take pictures of. I’m especially excited about stopping in D.C. again for the night. That’s our halfway point!


On Monday, my mom, Karlee, and I went ice skating. It all started with “what do you wanna do, idk what do you wanna do.”


We haven’t been skating in years! I’m thinking about taking adult lessons…yup…


I really should have brought my own skates because these ones needed some sharpening, but it was still fun.


My mom loves doing her twirls! Not going to lie, it was pretty funny when she fell on her butt.


After skating, we stopped at Dunkin for iced coffees!

Later in the night, we all met at Cabo Fish Taco in Noda! I ordered the usual guacamole salmon salad, without cilantro this time! It’s one of my favorite dishes there, minus the crab dip! My brother said that their fish tacos were the best he’s ever had. As a pescetarian, he’s had a lot of fish tacos.


It really felt like a small world, because as we were walking out, a family in the corner recognized us from Ottumwa, Iowa!


Well, now it’s time to do some packaging!!

    Dunkin Donuts french vanilla iced coffee is my weakness! I’m sad that the area I live in, there’s only 1 around here, and it’s about a 45 minute drive from my house and I work in the opposite direction of that as well. When I was in South Carolina last week on vacation you can bet I found a Dunkin and bought my iced coffee every chance I got!

    Ugh, Cabo Fish Taco is THE BEST! I love Noda. I’m from Charlotte and miss it so much! (living in GA now getting my Registered Dietitian license). Your blog is too cute!

    You won’t need help in Ogonquit at all- it’s so walkable and everything is super fancy- it’s also very famous for being a gay vacation spot so you’ll love the people watching- everyone is so, so nice there and the energy is great. What I actually recommend you guys absolutely not miss is down the street in York- go to the Nubble Lighthouse at Cape Neddick- it’s a very famous lighthouse and you can walk around the rocks and see seals bathing- they also have a gift shop and a freaking fantastic lobster roll shack- you have to get lobster rolls from there. They are crazy.

    Also in York is this fantastic little place that has amazing brick oven pizza- the best I’ve ever had- and you’d be remiss if you didn’t go by and get some. It’s in a gas station of all places. They also have an incredible coffee shop where they roast their own beans. It is amazing.

    Finally, you’d also be remiss if you didn’t do a drive by to see the Bush family compound in Kennebunkport- it’s a beautiful place. That area has some really funky shops and bistros in their downtown area, much like Ogonquit.

    Hope that helps!! Have fun, I’m going up there this weekend!

    Check out for some stops on your trip! You can map out your route with stops along the way including scenic routes, great restaurants, odd attractions, accommodations, etc. It’s a great resource!

    Oooh! Where in Maine are y’all going? My husband and I live in Boston and we go up to Maine all the time to see his grandparents. I can definitely offer restaurant and sightseeing advice if you need! 🙂

    Karlee is so pretty, she did a great job modeling the clothing you sell! It makes them much nicer looking and people can actually get a feel for how it would fit.

    I cannot figure skate for my life! I end up staying at the rail for the entire time!

    Skating in the summer is so refreshing, I should try it.

    If you love history, you should stop at Civil War/Revolutionary War battlesites along the way up. Chancellorsville, VA is a great one. Also the battle of Trenton & Princeton (NJ) and of course Massachusetts. Close to Trenton is the Delaware River and you can see where Washington crossed. Mt. Airy in NC is also a good little quick stop of you like Andy Griffith, it is his hometown and based the show off of it. Sorry, I am a big history lover and enjoy making stops when I do road trips.

    It looks like you guys had so much fun! I’m a figure skating coach and I would highly recommend adult lessons! Skating isn’t just a kid’s sport. It’s tons of fun!

    Where are you headed in NY? if your near the Poughkeepsie area there’s a place with some delicious food called Mill House Brewing Company (not sure if Nicks a beer guy, I know you said you’re not but if he is they brew their own beer there and the owners and bartenders are so nice!) they also use as much produce/ingredients from the local area as they can, the building is beautiful too! and then close by there is a ‘Walkway Over the Hudson’ which is an old train track they turned into a pedestrian bridge which has a gorgeous view that I think you’d love!

    How far up north are you going in maine?! (My favorite state!!!) If you make it all the way up the coast to Bar Harbor (Acadia Natl Park) You HAVE to stop at Young’s Lobster Pound in Belfast- you can see them pull the lobster out of the water! AND eat ALL of the lobster rolls anywhere you are in Maine!!! The smaller the shack, the better the roll!!! (totally worth the shorts fitting a little tighter for the next week or so :D)

    The pink and blue tribal tank in the sale section; how does it fit? Is it true to size and is it loose fitting or tight? I really like it!! Thanks!!

    I love that your mom is ice skating in shorts! She is one brave lady! Also that salad you had looks amazing! Can’t wait to read about your trip to Main and New York, are you exploring the city? If so I know a few places in Little Italy I am sure you and Nick would love! He’s from there originally right? Have fun and stay safe! 🙂
