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]

spring break!!! : knoxville [34]

Hey y'all! Remember me? Remember this little baby blog that hasn't had any new posts in a few months? It's been a whirlwind of a summer...I started my grad school summer classes in June, July was full of concerts and travel and weddings and engagements and general insanity, and then California schools start SO early, … Continue reading spring break!!! : knoxville [34]

VEGAS BABY #slaycation2018 – girls weekend in Las Vegas [32]

As soon as we knew we'd be moving to the West Coast, my best friend and I started planning a Vegas trip. 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]

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]

hidden gems : salt lake city, part 2 [15]

Saturday morning we got up, went to The People's Coffee for pastries and caffeine, then took our stinky dog to get a bath. Some vacation, right!? Turns out after two weeks of being in cars and hotel rooms together, a stinky dog is less forgivable than it might have been otherwise. We dropped the dog … Continue reading hidden gems : salt lake city, part 2 [15]

full of surprises: salt lake city, part 1 [14]

Where Cheyenne was disorienting because it was a pretty alien experience to me, Salt Lake City reminded me not to assume things about cities. I wasn't sure what to expect from Salt Lake City, and in my stereotyping brain I just sort of assumed it would be a pretty white-bread city with not a lot … Continue reading full of surprises: salt lake city, part 1 [14]

bagels, bison, & breweries : fort collins, co & cheyenne, part 2 [13]

Let me begin this post by saying if you ever end up in Cheyenne, WY, you absolutely should go to Mort's Bagels for breakfast. While they aren't New York bagels (my NY bagel connoisseur husband would like you to know that), they are still delicious and a definite great start to the day. I had … Continue reading bagels, bison, & breweries : fort collins, co & cheyenne, part 2 [13]
