My New Favorite Pizza Joint in Williamsburg: Blaze Pizza in New Town!

I am so excited New Town in Williamsburg has a new pizza eatery! Fast service, so many toppings to choose from and friendly staff and owners! This will be your new, go to pizza eatery!

I was invited to visit the newest location of Blaze Pizza located on Main street in New Town right across from American Family Fitness and asked my mom and hubby to join me. With an interactive assembly line of toppings and employees, what you can dream is at your fingertips. Choose a signature pizza and add on any other topping your heart desires or why not create your own? All under $8 too! The pizzas are big enough to share or take home with you after you have had enough! We came home with three boxes. 

Known for artisanal pizzas, freshly made salads, the BLOOD ORANGE LEMONADE, an the s'mores cookie. Have any specialty dietary needs? Blaze Pizza also offers gluten free dough and vegan cheese. A selection of craft beer is also available! 

I chose the Meat Eaters pizza and added bacon. Joe chose The Green Stripe and added a Cesar Salad. Mom chose the Link In and added her love of banana peppers. 

Thursday November 19th is Opening Day and Friday is FREE PIZZA day. Who doesn't love FREE PIZZA?

You will love this place, I know. I can't wait to go back- It'll probably be Friday. See you there? 

Why not go ahead and follow them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram?

Ahoy Galveston!

It has been too long since I took these photos! :(

What a great time we had about the Carnival Magic! Joe had never been on a cruise but I had years ago (20 to be exact and it was pretty much to the day when we set sail... isn't that strange? I didn't plan on it being like that.). Joe kept calling me the Cruise Expert because that is how he is. I was no Cruise Expert.

We didn't check our bags like almost everyone else did so we got to drag our luggage around for the first couple of hours we boarded the ship. Yes, we looked like newbies even if our Blue Cards didn't give us away. Instead of keys for your room or using and kind of money on board, Carnival has a Sign and Sail program. You are outfitted for the trip with your key, sort of like a credit card. This card opens your room, turns on your lights, gets you a table at dinner and of course gets you a drink!

Being a little gun shy like Joe can be when is in an environment he doesn't know, I picked out two lounge chairs on the Lido Deck and motioned for him to take a seat and chill. We were starving so I stood in a line at the Pizza Pirate. The pizza on the Carnival Magic is great. We snacked on a Quattro Formaggi and a Prosciutto. The pepperoni is good too. Servers are constantly walking around offering the daily drink special but we decided not to start too soon.

It was really no time before we were able to get into our room and unpack. After that we were required to attend out Muster Station safety program and then it was time to set sail!

Cruise Snippet's

I have never been so tired than I have after traveling for the last 10 days. I don't understand how some people do it. I guess they grab sleep where they can. I wanted to update you on a couple of shots of my trip and soon I will have more. It was amazing!
