Welcome to my  blog!

I’m Mariah, the writer. Above is me and my editor in chief, Murphis. Together, most recently, he and I have taken on Austin, Texas!

Along this journey, we call life, we have learned life lessons, been on awesome adventures, created and enjoyed a diverse array of food and managed to take a few magical photographs.

In this space I will share my experiences, photos and thoughts.

Take from it what you will.

-Mariah & Murphy


I have taken a hiatus from wanderlust.laboratory for a while. I got so busy with school, work and I had to put my baby Murph down last year.

Since then I have a new job, a new puppy Theo and have moved out of the [slums] and into a wicked nice apartment with Joshua, YAY! I’m still in school and plan to graduate in the summer of 2019 with an associates in criminal justice.

I’m going to try to post more of the awesome recipes I have been creating over the past year. Theo is a BEAST and I will of course flood this site with pictures of his cute squishy face. He is a shar pei, just like my late Mr. Murph.


Thanks for reading ❤
