Christmas In Dublin!

Saturday, January 6, 2018

Christmas Day was super chill. We woke up and exchanged stockings and explored an empty Dublin. 

Also lol. We were trying to find the Temple Bar and I found this and was like, "Huh! It looks different real life? But I guess this is it?" So I took a picture and then we kept walking. Like a minute later we stumbled upon the REAL Temple Bar haha. In the future, I want to screenshot everything I want to photography so I can make sure I am at the right place!

We went back the next morning and I tested out my wide angle lens. I really need to use it more! Also these photos are soooo cringey to me b/c the whole JPEG thing but WHATEVER. 

The hotel we stayed at was super close to this cute waterway. It was one of those things that was so picturesque, but really hard to capture on camera. I will remember walking along the water for a long time though. There was hardly anyone outside and the sun was setting, and it was just so peaceful. 

The next morning we checked out of our hotel and headed home! I was getting ready in the morning and I was showing J the difference between my hair being curled fresh and leftover curls, and he was like, "Hey is that one of those things where it's like, your hair vs the girl he cheats with??" (Referencing this Tweet, if you never saw it haha.) I was cracking up because it was soooo just like not what the joke was about, but also his comment confirmed that men truly don't understand that joke hahahahaha. 

After we started driving away, I realized I left my Toblerone in our room. Nicely J volunteered to go back and get it and me and the Toblerone of my dreams were reunited once again. 

I read a lot of Into The Woods on my way home! It was a weird coincidence that it takes place in Ireland and we were in Ireland lol. Anyway, it is v good if you need a good book to read! 

We got back to New York to find our car had a flat tire... and the weather app said it "felt like -4" hahaha. So, J changed it while I took all the snow and ice off of the windows. It probably only took us like 20 minutes and then we were off! I was a lot less annoyed than I thought I would be haha. Which is progress for me.

We picked Tucker up from the sitters and then went to bed! The jet lag there and back wasn't even bad. I think it's like a 5 hour time difference or something? So it was really no big deal! 

Anyway, this was such a fun trip! It was the trip that inspired J to do more trips, and the trip that taught me we are capable adults who can do successful international trips by ourselves! I am really excited for this year, because it's the year I finish grad school and we become double income! We plan to still live a modest lifestyle of eating McDonald's and living in 1,000 square feet haha. But anything extra we are going to put into savings or travel, so I am excited to see where we go! As of now we are planning somewhere in the Caribbean for our anniversary over the summer and Germany for Christmas! So, you guys will have to let me know if you have any recommendations in any of those places :)
