01.20.18 – Surprisingly, I’ve never been to Red Rock Canyon until this recent trip to Vegas and I’m glad we were able to check it out! My sister lives about 20 minutes from it, so it was a super easy drive to get to it. When we left her neck of the woods, it was a bit chilly, but the sun was out. As soon as we hit the Red Rock area, the weather was cloudy and freezing! When we were entering the conservation park, it started to hail and then SNOW! The entrance fee to the place was $7.00 … Continue reading Vegas: Day 4 – Red Rock Canyon.
01.19.18 – That morning, I rolled out of bed (actually, I rolled off the couch since we’ve been sleeping on my sister’s couch while we were in Vegas) and got the harness on the pupperoo and headed to the airport to pick up my sister as she was flying in from LA. Pepper definitely needs to get used to being in the car, especially when it’s just her and the driver. She was trying to stand on my lap while giving me kisses and when she was on the passenger seat she would cry. Anyways, we picked up my sister … Continue reading Vegas: Day 3.
We just got back from spending almost 3 days in Portland. We got to experience rainy, overcast, and sunny Portland. We definitely had more on our To-Do list, but because of the weather and lack of sleep our itinerary was cut short, but we still enjoyed our time! Saturday We flew in from SFO just before 11am. We took the MAX Red Line from the Airport towards City Center & Beaverton and got off at Gateway to switch onto the Max Green Line towards City Center/PSU where we got off at SW 5th & Oak (our hotel was around the … Continue reading Portland – Our “3 Day” Itinerary
I’m pretty excited to be going back to Portland since the last time I was there was back in July. T has been in Portland, but for a like a couple of hours (he went years ago with a friend who went up for a job interview). Since he’s never really explored the city I thought it would be a great place to go to celebrate his birthday. This upcoming trip is going to feature a lot of food and beer (especially since I’m trying to cut out hard liquor). Also, with it raining, we are not able to go … Continue reading Portland.
We did this Mayan jungle ATV/ Zip line tour which was a ton of fun, but with one drawback… the mosquitoes! So early in the morning, we were picked up to be driven about 45 minutes out. We were told that because the villagers get their water supply from the cenote (natural pit, or sinkhole, resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath) and cave, we cannot have any sunblock or bug spray. Anyways, we started off getting on ATVs. T drove me around which was nice. HOWEVER. This guy would purposefully slow down just to … Continue reading Day 6: ATV, Ziplining, and Cave Swimming
So Day 4 of our Mexico trip was our Spa Day. Unfortunately, I do not have any photos at the spa. Our night was very sleepless. Both T and I woke up from nightmares. I actually woke up crying. Probably one of the worst dreams I ever had. But that’s a different story and I don’t want to get into detail. Basically I had a dream about my sister and it was just hellish. ANYWAYS! Our morning was sort of rushed. T’s parents had this massages first so they left, which meant they left B with us. We got ready … Continue reading Day 4: Spa Day
Our 2nd day in Cancun consisted of sleeping in and having the chance to swim with a dolphin! Before we left, T and I stayed in the room and watched B while his parents took a tour of the new resort. After their meeting, we took a chartered bus from the resort to where we were going to swim with a dolphin. Danny the Dolphin was the absolute cutest! And so smart 🙂 T and I commented on how we thought it was cute how Danny would always close his eyes during the photos. After we got out of the … Continue reading Day 2: Swimming with Danny the Dolphin
We flew out of SFO to Cancun on a red eye flight. Unfortunately, the flight there we did not get much sleep so as soon as we arrived in Cancun, we were all zombies. We were picked up by a driver and headed to The Grand at The Moon Palace resort. After we got our wristbands (our resort is an All-Inclusive Resort) we went straight to the lobby bar and got a few drinks while waiting for our table to be ready at the buffet. After lunch, we decided to look for the pool. The pools were pretty far from … Continue reading Day 1: Cancun, Mexico
Our first stop in Anaheim was the Anaheim Packing House to eat. It was hot AF inside and outside. We ate at Kettlebar because we’re big on panroasts! Continue reading Anaheim Packing House.
Our first stop in Vegas was grabbing a Pan Roast at Oyster Bar in Palace Station. As per usual, I ordered the Palace Pan Roast, which is crab, shrimp, chicken, and andouille sausage ina tomato cream sauce. Food is always … Continue reading Pan Roast.
