DC trip

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

As I mentioned before, this past weekend I went up to DC with my boyfriend to visit an old friend of mine.  We have actually been friends since I was 2 or 3 when we lived in the same neighborhood in Ohio.  Then, I moved to Charlotte when I was 4 and the seriously cool thing is that despite the fact that we never lived in the same place again, we have been friends ever since.  We kept in touch as pen pals and saw each other for various reasons every few years or so.  We have a pretty neat relationship and I am always excited to get to see her.   On Friday, Chris and I roamed around DC and we totally lucked out because the cherry blossoms were in bloom.  Needless to say, you are about to see a lot of pictures of monuments and flowers.

 So I pulled out a penny to throw in the reflection pool and I realized that the building on it was the same one I was standing in front of.  Mind. Blown.

It was a really great trip and if any of you get a chance to go to DC when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, I highly recommend it.

San Antonio Recap

Thursday, March 6, 2014

This weekend, my boyfriend Chris and I flew to San Antonio for the weekend to visit some old friends of his.  We had a really lovely time and Texas was pretty much exactly how I thought it would be in terms of architecture and landscape.  Our hosts definitely went out of their way to show us a good time despite that fact that Chris’s friend Kelly was 9 months pregnant.  You better believe that if I was in her place, my butt would be laid up with bon bons all weekend instead of parading guests around.  We saw the Alamo and the rest of the missions, went for cocktails at the River walk and then went to Texas Hill Country on our last day there and visited some vineyards for wine tastings.  Everything we did was super fun and I recommend them as activities if you guys ever visit.   My favorite part of the trip besides getting to meet Tyler and Kelly was spending time with their cat, Roscoe, who is definitely at the tip top of my best cats ever list.

 Sir Roscoe.  I completely adore him however I am sad to report that he does not return the sentiment.

California Dreaming

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

To help myself get over the gloomy cold, I have started planning our big trip for this summer.  Corey and I will be heading out west to California to visit good friends and to bask in the sunshine of the California coast.  Oh sunshine, won’t you be lovely.  Per my bucket list of vacation spots, we will be spending time in Big Sur, San Fran (obviously), and Yosemite after we stop into LA.  You guys probably know more than I do, so do you have any recommendations for those specific places?  And/or any other locales that we need to add to the list?  Stay warm guys.
