Farm-to-Table

Following in true nerd fashion, I got my friend to come along to downtown of an area called McKinney in order to play Pokemon Go (I’m slightly obsessed). While we were there we decided to eat. This was a critical moment.. I get HANGRY, and that’s not a good look on anyone.

So we parked the car in the town square. I love it because it feels very old school Texas in this area, the court house is even in the middle of the square. Anyways, going off topic here. So we parked right in front of this local restaurant. Figured we’d look at the menu and after we decided ‘Why the hell not?’

So in we go and to be honest I was shocked. It was cozy, and felt very rustic. We sat at a secluded table and eyed the menu once again. We ordered the ribeye with bearnaise sauce (is your mouth drooling? Cause mine is!) and the serrano caesar salad.

The food was amazing. We had the peach cobbler for dessert and I don’t think I’ve ever been happier to live in Texas. My god the food was awesome. 

So if you’re ever around downtown McKinney make sure to stop by Harvest. They’re a seasonal kitchen devoted to finding local ingredients. Plus its delish.

So I know this post is a month late, but hey… better late than never right?


The 4th of July in the United States of America is an excuse to gather and partake in silly shenanigans. I obviously had to join in! 

Luckily a friend of mine decided to have a pool party. At first i wasn’t sure i wanted to go because of the whole ‘being seen in a bikini’ thing, but it turned out well.

We got in the pool, I hide in the shade some, and we even played life-size Jenga! 

I had a blast and I can honestly tell you, there is nothing better than pool days during the Texas summer heat.

SACC @ 34 Events

I’ve recently been working with SACC (the Swedish American Chamber of Commerce) as their marketing director!

We have a speaker series where we feature one speaker at an event every month. So far i’ve attended three, but last nights was pretty impressive. The CFO from Ericsson came to speak and we had a sponsor who rented a local in downtown Plano at 34 Events. 

Although i was stood by the entrance making sure each guest was registered, i met a lot of influential individuals. I think the total amount who attended was closer to 55-60!

Sometimes having a different heritage is pretty cool. Not so much when one guy read my name tag and went “My SACC… my sack… he he.” …Oh well, you can’t have it all.

SXSW

I spent half of my weekend down in Austin for South by Southwest® (SXSW®)! My friend and I drove down for the job market at the convention center. It was way worth going, i was pleasantly surprised. When we first got there my anxiety was through the roof but after a while i enjoyed talking to recruiters from various companies. A few new connections cant hurt. 

Austin is such a different city considering it is in Texas, but i feel like SXSW brings out the best of it!
