vegas, again: hoover dam & a weekend getaway [37]

So, we have a tiny little airport in Monterey that has regular or semi-regular flights to San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Denver, and soon-to-be DFW. We were looking for a short getaway for Memorial Day weekend, and the MRY-LAS options have a Friday flight and a Monday flight. SCORE! So that … Continue reading vegas, again: hoover dam & a weekend getaway [37]

a weekend in kansas city [36]

Guys, the Kansas City airport is literally the weirdest airport I've been to. It's in the process of being completely overhauled which really adds to the feeling of being in an ~alternate dimension~. We walked off the plane and basically immediately exited the airport. MCI is basically just a big circle that was clearly designed … Continue reading a weekend in kansas city [36]

olympics, penguins, and plenty of debauchery : atlanta [35]

While we were in Knoxville visiting my in-laws this spring, we took a side trip down to Atlanta to visit some dearly missed friends. This was our third trip to Atlanta together - and I'm honestly amazed we survived the first trip which is still, five years later, our scale for how bad of a hangover you … Continue reading olympics, penguins, and plenty of debauchery : atlanta [35]

It's one of her favorite places to visit, and I'd never been before, so it seemed like the perfect destination for a girls' weekend. We went during Presidents' Day weekend, from Thursday until … Continue reading VEGAS BABY #slaycation2018 – girls weekend in Las Vegas [32]

food, drinks, & fun in the bay area / central coast [31]

The first quarter of the year (how is it March already!?) has led us on plenty of adventures in a nice couple of hour radius from Monterey. We've seen a bowl game in Santa Clara, explore a little bit more of San Francisco, saw another concert in Oakland, hiked - and drank plenty of beer! … Continue reading food, drinks, & fun in the bay area / central coast [31]

new york city, part 2 [ 30 ]

Hello again! February has been a busy month - so far I've trekked up to Oakland, out to Las Vegas, and off to St. Louis. Catching up on the blog has not quite gone the way I want it to around all the craziness, but we are getting there slowly but surely. When I last … Continue reading new york city, part 2 [ 30 ]
