Barrel & Bushel: A Stop That Can't Be Missed!

His passion for food is tangible, you can feel it, you can taste it. Chef Dan Dienemann pulls up a chair next to our table and starts to describe that passion, and how it is incorporated into the food he prepares and serves every day at Barrel & Bushel. So much passion for a restaurant I might not normally think to visit if I wasn’t already staying at The Hyatt Regency at Tysons Corner right next door. I can’t believe anyone could possibly miss out on this place. By the way, the picture above is his take on Chicken & Waffles! Bourbon french toast, B&B pickles, B&B hot sauce and buttered amber maple syrup. Is your mouth watering yet? You know you want some.

It’s not easy though to find a hotel that meets those standards. That’s why I was floored when I came across the Library Hotel Collection.

I’ve heard the saying since I was a child; it’s all in the details. Until I became an adult I didn’t truly understand what that meantand until my recent stay at The Langham Place Hotel in NYC I hadn’t seen it put to action so well. When staying at a five-star hotel you get accustomed to the perks and know what to expect, so when you go to another five star hotel and they surpass those perks and expectations I am impressedLangham Place NYC did just that.

VTech Kidizoom Action Cam - My Pick for the Best Toy of the Year!

It’s that time of the year when we all scramble to find the perfect gifts for everyone you love. While kids can want pretty much everything inside of the toy store, I think most parents can agree it’s hard to find a useful toy that your kiddos will really appreciate. Too many toys just end up in the yard sale pile when summer rolls around. You need something that is durable, fun, can grow with them and is well worth the money you spend. That’s why the VTech® Kidizoom® Action Cam is the perfect gift. Kids are always on the go and it’s a blast for them to capture all of their adventures.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
