About

So you came here to learn more about me, eh?  Hi!!  I’m Vyvy! :D *waves arms excitedly*  I loooooooove me some delicious food, exciting travel, and Batman in general.

Vyvacious.com has evolved and morphed from various concepts along the way just like my three passions listed above but I’m pretty sure I’ve kept the essence of Vyvy the whole way :P  My blog now consists of all things Batman, travel adventures, food obsessions, delicious brainiac recipes, dipping my toes into the specialized dessert/catering business, and funny stories ranging from awkward family encounters to the magnificence that heaves forth from the inner abyss of this constantly-creating foodie.

I kept noticing a trend, new people would come to my site, immediately read my About page and abruptly skedaddle.  I was like “WHAAAAAAAAT?!?! D:  You aren’t taking the time to check out any of posts I cooked up in this brainy brain of mine and took time and effort to piece together?!  You want to laugh and feel hungry right off the bat when looking at my About page instead of gazing at a wonky informational section I took straight from my Yelp account…?”

Well, why didn’t you fucking say so then?! ;)

In the beginning, I was worried that my humor or style would offend people so I tried to often unsuccessfully censor myself.  And then I realized, so the fuck what?  This is who I am, I’m proud of it, not sure why others would judge me for that but hey, if it’s not their cup of tea then please move right along.  Otherwise, welcome, my friend, I’ve got a nice spot just for YOU along with a plate of cookies, or cupcakes, or ice cream…  Really, anything you want, I got it :)  I love seeing people get really excited over my desserts and then also fighting to the (near) death to get more (TRUE STORY).  OOOH, now THAT would be an interesting reality TV show!! ;P

Now, some of y’all are wondering about the Batman infatuation.  Well you’re just going to have to keep wondering as you try to unravel the mystery behind my deep-set love for Batman.  Someday I’ll write a fully fledged post about that but today is not that day ;)

While I like to keep a light tone to Vyvacious.com, I definitely delve into the tougher subjects too as of late like when I took my first steps after having to learn how to walk again after an ATV accident, struggling with my identity/sense of self after I was supposed to have “recovered,” and even using baking as a coping mechanism to help me through rehab.

So don’t worry, there’s something for EVERYONE here!! :D  I hope you grab an ice cold beverage, maybe a few of my infamous Ultimate Oreo Truffles, and settle back in your seat as I take you on the overly-albeit-charmingly-descriptive joy ride of a lifetime… ;)

See you around, y’all!! :D

    Hey Vyvy, hopefully this gets to you. I deactivated my facebook due to just wanting to focus more on my volunteerwork , running, and other causes for a while. My e-mail is Mark.Davis.BuenaPark@gmail.com in case you need to contact me (No, don’t care if my email is public :P).

      Funny to see that your Facebook is still up and running! :P But I do understand your reasons for keeping it. I’m so glad you reached out to me and I can’t wait to attend the Komen Race for the Cure as a team coming up on the 9/23!! :)

  5. Thanks for checking out my blog! I love food too, but am currently low-carbing it. How boring, huh?? :p My mouth is watering just looking at some of the tasty treat pics you’ve posted on here!

      You’re most welcome!

      Ah, the low-carb diet. Does that mean no carbs at all or can you have quinoa and things like that? When I did my cleansing diet (to help with my allergies), the only carbs I was allowed to have was quinoa and small amounts of sweet potato. I needed SOMETHING to sustain me and my large appetite! :P

      Yeah I don’t think there’s any low-carb desserts here for you to try. Though I plan to start posting more food recipes :)

      • This is basically no carbs—20 grams or less per day. I am just trying to head off genetic health problems. No sweet potatoes, because those are loaded with carbs, which is a major bummer since I love them!

        Ah I see. That’s super tough.

        I get what you’re saying. I had to do my crazy diet for health reasons too. I feel like it’s better that way because you have a real motivating factor, not like trying to fit your ass into your skinny jeans from yesteryear.

        Hang tight and stick through it :) Then hopefully you’ll be healthy enough to eat a sweet potato or two (or five) in the near future :P

  1. […] Vyvacious brought some gourmet batman looking stuff to the table which started a chain reaction. Everyone started whipping out their treats. Not those kinds of treats. Adam is brought a cheese ball. Lori brought an edible insect that I stayed away from, because I wasn’t sure what it was. I ate Weeb’s desert instead. She got kind of mad. To top it all off, I found Lauren frying chicken in the kitchen with mmkng (hello, hello kitty underwear!). They were whispering to each other, “Be vewy vewy careful” and snickering madly. […]
