I'm home now from Seattle. I actually got home on Monday evening, but I was completely wiped from traveling. That tiredness extended into Tuesday and finally today I feel back to my regular self. Well as regular as I can be at 7 months pregnant! The last real day of our trip was Sunday. The… Continue reading Seattle Wrap Up
Seattle – Day 2 – Sugar!
It's the end of day 3 of my trip to Seattle, but I wanted to share a couple of places I went yesterday. The theme of yesterday was sugar and more sugar with sugar on top please. I think my friends and I are trying to see how much sugary treats we can possibly eat… Continue reading Seattle – Day 2 – Sugar!
Seattle – Day 1
Yesterday was a great first day in Seattle. I've never actually been to the northwest part of the country before so I was excited to finally get off the plane and see the city. Two of my friends picked me up at the airport and we headed back to our hotel first. Did I mention… Continue reading Seattle – Day 1
En Route to Seattle
I am currently on a plane to Seattle. I'm trying my hand at mobile blogging on my phone. I am going to write up this post now and then publish it once we land. So if there's a bunch of spelling errors or weird formatting, I apologize. I'll go back and fix them later. As… Continue reading En Route to Seattle
Will Travel With Food
So I mentioned in my last post that Benzo and I went away to a cabin last weekend. It was kind of a secluded cabin close to a lake that had a full kitchen. Which meant that we would be making all of our food since there were no restaurants nearby. Not that we wanted… Continue reading Will Travel With Food
Hein? Un Ananas?
Hein? Un ananas? means Huh? A pineapple? in French. You probably don't find that very funny. But if you were in my senior year French AP class you would find it hilarious. We even made t-shirts (puff paint!) with pineapples on them and that phrase. It's funny because when you say it in French it… Continue reading Hein? Un Ananas?
Alakai Swamp Trail Hike
I am going to be busy all day today and all evening tonight so I already know I won't have any fantastic dinners to share (like last night) or pictures of the garden or anything like that today. So I thought I would finally post some more pictures of my trip to Hawaii. During our… Continue reading Alakai Swamp Trail Hike
Hawaiian Farmers’ Market
Last week when I was in Hawaii, I made a special visit to the farmers' market. We got there at the tail end of the market and a lot of the farmers were starting to pack up. Luckily we were able to snag some fresh fruit. Check this out: Can you imagine buying this kind… Continue reading Hawaiian Farmers’ Market
Welcome to Paradise
Spent some of the day yesterday at Polihale Beach on the west side of the island. It was gorgeous. Ocean and beach with mountains in the background. We ate lunch at a cute little roadside shop on the way back from the beach and then we went to several lookout points on top of the… Continue reading Welcome to Paradise
We are here in Honolulu. The travel yesterday was BRUTAL. By the time we finally got to our hotel it was about 3:30am Kansas City time. Yeowsa! But this makes it all worth it: We woke up at 5am local time this morning. Ha! But that's 10am Kansas City time so that's sleeping in. We… Continue reading Aloha
