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]

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 1 [29]

new york city, center of the universe... Oh, New York. I grew up in "upstate" New York - actually Central New York, but most people who don't live in New York (and even many who do) consider anything outside of the boroughs to be "upstate." False, y'all. But I'll spare you the endless details of … Continue reading new york city, part 1 [29]

the brew crew : milwaukee [9]

Max and I like to do this thing where we last-minute decide to go to a sports event we don't necessarily care about whenever we are on vacation. We went to a Tampa Bay Lightning game in Tampa, a Preds game in Nashville, and this time we decided to go to a Brewers game. We … Continue reading the brew crew : milwaukee [9]

the fenway feels: boston, part 1 [2]

Boston. So many of my dreams involved Boston. Make Way for Ducklings is my favorite children's book. When I felt like my whole life was in a tailspin in 2011, Boston was the escape. It was so easy to imagine hopping on the 90 and driving east until the road ended. I applied to a … Continue reading the fenway feels: boston, part 1 [2]
