London Canal Tour and Camden Market: London Day 5

Sunday, November 17, 2019
Our last full day started out with breakfast at Drury, a cute little coffee shop. The decor was cute and the food was good! The orange juice was fresh squeezed and my avocado toast had a lemon juice flavor that was amazing!


Biking Around Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Eating Indian Food, and Getting Scurred!: London Day 4

Wednesday, November 6, 2019
Day 4 started out with us going to Big Ben only to discover it was covered in scaffolding haha. I totally knew this, but when we were on the London Eye I thought I saw it uncovered! So, we walked over to Westminster Abbey where we happened to run into a climate change protest. It was really cool! There were police every where and people holding signs and demonstrations. There were people "handcuffed" around barrels using plastic. It was really cool to stumble upon!

Windsor Castle, Bath, Stonehenge and A Secret Harry Potter Tavern: London Day 3

Sunday, October 27, 2019
Day 3 was our tour day! We left at like 7:00am (ish), took an Uber to the bus station and then took a bus to Windsor Castle. It was such a cute little area! And also so cool to tour the castle. I guess the queen spends her weekends there. It was amazing seeing all the different rooms. They have a separate dressing room from the closet from the bedroom and just insane stuff like that. 

The British Museum, Vegetarian Tacos, & Bibimbap Bowls: London Day 2

Sunday, October 20, 2019
We started the day out with breakfast at Salt and Pepper where J looked like a SNACK.

The London Eye and Pizza: London Day 1

Sunday, October 13, 2019
I am going to try to post about this trip before I forget it all 😂

So, we went to London with some of our friends from Utah. (Jake's childhood friend and his wife, who is basically my twin.) They drove up from Utah and we flew out the next day.

The flight was ok. It was really smooth but I got a little sick and then got really panicky about being sick on an airplane. I came back from the bathroom and started clearing my space so I could feel less claustrophobic/hot and I handed Jake my camera, but forgot to get it on the way out and LEFT IT ON THE MF PLANE!! Luckily it was just my handheld camera and not my nice DSLR, but I was still bummed haha. (P.S. This is the best handheld camera: pop out/swivel screen and it shoots RAW. I have been using it for most of my photos lately.) (Wow, just saw it is wayyyy more than I thought it was and am now sad all over again.)

ANYWAY.

After we got off the plane, we dropped out bags off at a shop we found with a luggage storage app called Stasher, and got some fish n' chips from The Fryer's Delight. They were really good!


Our First Time Staying In A Sonder!

Saturday, October 12, 2019





#notsponsored So, Jake has been following this start-up company called Wonder, that's kind of like Airbnb except it's owned by a company instead of by individual people. They have a few locations around the world and they are all really beautiful apartments! So, when we were looking for somewhere to stay in London with our friends, we decided to just test it out and I ended up LOVING it! Wayyyyyyy better than a hotel room. And this isn't sponsored, it's just me wanting to share cool travel tips/things with you.

Pros: 
- having a full kitchen
- having a living room to hang out in (vs cramming into someone's hotel room)
- tv
- A TOWEL WARMER
- cool light up mirror
- beautiful
- fun to be in an apartment building
- smart lock that you can also lock from the inside so a code can't open it
- texting the company for anything I needed
- easy check in and check out
- bedroom fan

Cons:
- bathroom trash can was hard to open
- no where to put luggage if arriving early (we used an app called Stasher but I didn't feel the place we used was very secure)

I think my favorite thing was having a living room We went with our friends and so it was nice to have a private area to hang out in, instead of a hotel lobby or someone's bedroom. I also liked having a fridge and kitchen area for snacks. When we went to Dublin, we didn't have a kitchen for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day and it was actually really hard to find food since everywhere was closed haha. So, having a kitchen is definitely a plus!

Anyway, that's all I can really think to say! I liked the pillows they had as well. And I always like pretending like I live somewhere lol, so I liked the whole apartment vibe! 

Here's a link to where we stayed! The location was great and within walking distance to lots of fun stuff. 10/10 would recommend.

XOXO

Bainbridge Film 4 Years Later Lol

Sunday, September 8, 2019
I have like 5 rolls of film that I have had for the past 6 years. I don't have any idea anymore what's on each roll, so it was fun to pick one at random and find out it was full of pictures from my uncle's wedding on Bainbridge Island, WA 4 years ago! Look how young Jake looks lol. 

Other (digital) pictures from that trip here, here, here, and here.

Labor Day Weekend

Tuesday, September 3, 2019
We went to my grandma's house for Labor Day weekend! I had one client on Friday morning and Jake worked until noon and then we headed out! It was so fun to be able to drive a few hours and be in Spokane! 

I got my bangs trimmed on Thursday and am making a commitment to never cut my own bangs again haha. Don't do it. Just find someone who does free bang trims!

Also, look at these words of inspiration I found in a gas station bathroom lol. 

We ran into some traffic and ended up getting there around 6:00pm. We met my mom at my grandma's house and had a yummy little dinner! It was so funny, we were talking about my grandma's Alexa and she was telling us, "Sometimes I'll ask Alexa... how tall is... Frank Sinatra?" lmao. And then my mom was showing us how Alexa can play a game where it makes noises and you guess the animal and she was like, "Alexa, play the animal game." And Alexa was like, "Ok. Think of an animal and I'll guess what it is in 20 questions or less." And my grandma turned around and under her breath said, "That's what happens when you live alone." hahahahahaha. I am laughing just typing that hahah. 

New York City: Day 3

Friday, May 3, 2019
Wow I am so late blogging these pictures!!

Our last day in New York we got chicken and waffles from Sweet Chick, pizza from Prince Street, cookies from Pick A Bagel (where a little boy projectile vomited inches from Jake's back lol) and then went home! It was a good quick trip!

New York City: Day 2

Thursday, May 2, 2019
Our second day in New York was so fun! Before we talk about anything else, please note how tan my legs are hahaha. I use this tanning stuff and I would honestly die for it. 

We started with breakfast at Sarabeth's, which I would say is good but also maybe not worth the hype everyone gives it! (Kneader's has such good French toast it is hard to compare haha.) Also, I wasn't crazy about the atmosphere, which is usually the thing that will tip it for me if I am on the fence. 

New York City: Day 1

Wednesday, May 1, 2019
Jake went to New York for business, so naturally I tagged along (free hotel helloooo). 

Arizona!

Saturday, February 16, 2019
So we went out to Arizona for J's cousin's wedding on Saturday and it was really fun! The flight itself was pretty scary, just because it was so snowy and it took a while for the plan to be ready to take off. Oh, and then the flight was pretty turbulent, like so much so that they didn't serve us drinks haha. 

But, once we got there it was fun! I was able to meet up with my friend, Beverly, who I have been online friends with for probably 10 years! Whenever we are in the same state we try to meet up! This time, we got In N Out, went to Barnes and Nobles and got gelato! It's always so fun to meet up with friends!

01.02.19 - Legoland!

Wednesday, January 2, 2019
This is the last day from our trip to California! 

We got donuts from Donut Bar in the morning and they were so good! They had so many cool flavors and even this cute unicorn donut!

01.01.19 - Disneyland!

Tuesday, January 1, 2019
So this was my first time in Disneyland since I was literally 8 years old. I didn't really have any expectations, and it was actually a lot more fun than I was thinking it would be! We went on pretty much all the rides on my list (my sister gave me a list lol) and got to try so many treats! The treats were my favorite part lol. 

These churros were so good! Also right after this we went Soarin' Over The World which was really cool and the Car's ride which was definitely my favorite. We did that fast pass thing, and it was cool and helped things go a lot faster I think!


I got the bread bowl from this Cafe and it was seriously so good! You can see them making the sourdough bread too which was really cool. 


We split up for a bit and J and I went on Space Mountain which was actually probably my least favorite. It was just jerky and dark the whole time? 


This tigger tail from the Winnie The Pooh area was my favorite! I almost didn't get it because I thought it was going to just be chocolate and caramel covered marshmallows, but it was actually orange flavored chocolate and caramel which made it SO GOOD. It seriously tasted like a creamsicle and was probably my favorite treat of the trip!


We got the mint julep drink and Mickey beignets from the New Orlean's area and they were both so good too! 


We did more rides and then did dinner at Flo's, which was a lot better than I was expecting! I just got a burger and fries. 


We only got crappy iPhone photos together, but I don't mind! 



These macarons were another of my favorite treats! I also almost didn't get these, because I haven't been super craving macarons for a while, but I did just for the experience and they were for sure the best macarons I have ever had! The filling is raspberries, so it makes them really fresh and not too sweet. For sure a must try!


And, that was our trip to Disneyland! It was really fun and I would definitely go again, which was something I probably wouldn't have said prior to this trip haha. 


XOXO

12.31.18 - Balboa Island

Monday, December 31, 2018
The last day of 2018 was pretty good! We went to Balboa island and got lots of treats.

Spokane

Tuesday, December 18, 2018
We went to Spokane to visit my grandma a few weeks ago! It had been a while since we had been there together, and also since I had been there during Christmas. We did all the usual things and it was so fun!

December 1:

This was the day we left! I tried to get an almond crunch pretzel with sweet glaze at the airport, but they were out, so I got a regular pretzel instead and then saw they have KEN'S HONEY MUSTARD. I used to work at the dinosaur museum and we had this turkey bacon sandwich that everyone raved about. I made myself a different version of it and it was seriously SO GOOD. I went back this summer and finally got the real turkey bacon sandwich and it really was so good! Anyway, I used to eat soft pretzels there and dip them in the honey mustard sauce and it was soooo good. So before I quit I went though the stock room to see what the brand was lololololol. Anyway, you can find it at Target! Get it! It is seriously so good!

Europe Trip: Paris - Day 8

Thursday, October 11, 2018
We flew out of Paris so we headed back the next day! I was sad to leave our cute hotel with the cool plant wall haha.


Europe Trip: Amsterdam - Day 7

Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Our last day in Amsterdam we booked a last minute trip to Zanse Schans, the chocolate and windmill town! It was super cute and fun. I feel like I don't love the editing on these pics, but what can ya do. We went with a tour that took us around the whole village and I feel like it was a good way to do it!
