Live it Local | Homeroom

As of late I’ve been trying to be as healthy as I can be with my diet due to my impending doom (just kidding for my wedding). I’m trying on wedding dresses in a few months and I have a bit of tightening up to do (blog posts to come on my fitness journey!)

Anytime theres Lechon on the menu I must order it.

The dishes were mouthwatering with great flavor and perfect portions. The Lechon bowl was bit heavier than I usually do for lunch but it was so worth the cheat.  Continue Reading
