I’m traveling all week for work so I’ve asked a couple of awesome ladies to write guests posts!
First up is Corey @ Learning Patience. I’m lucky to have recently discovered her blog – I’ve loved reading about her adventures all the way from Trinidad!
Read her post below, and then go check out her blog for more of her incredible-looking recipes AND her recent forays into surfing.
Hello Sprint 2 the Table Readers!
I’m super excited to be guest posting for Laura today and it’s my first ever guest post!
I love Laura’s blog – she is such a motivation to get off your butt and workout or try and do 84 pushups a day! (I’m only up to 70.)
I recently started Learning Patience when I became and expat in June! My husband & I moved from Houston, TX to the beautiful island of Trinidad! My blog is a lot about new recipes I’m trying out (I LOVE to cook), our adventures living as expats for the first time, the fun travels we take, how we stay fit and anything else that crosses my mind!
The other night, I created these vegetarian Mexican Stuffed Mushrooms for my husband and I and they were SO good! He loved them and he is a big meat-eater! They are healthy, flavorful, filling and best of all – Easy to Make!
