Road Trip?

We’ve been home from our world travels for three whole months and let’s just say there have been LOTS of decisions to be made in that time frame. Where do we want to live? Overseas? Denver? Washington D.C.? Seattle? Chicago? What do we want to do (professionally)? Return to our old or pursue new careers? Do we move or get jobs first? Do the furbabies come with right away or wait till we are more settled? The list goes on. I posted a hint last night of our plans on Instagram, but after MUCH deliberation we have finally decided wholeheartedly that we are moving to…..

Seattle2…the beautiful city of Seattle!!!! But if you know us, you know we aren’t just going to pack up and fly there. Oh no siree. We are road tripping it! We are stuffing our Saturn, that sounds like a rocket taking off when you accelerate and has zero air conditioning, full of camping, hiking, and interview supplies/clothes and taking two weeks to see the sites on our way out West. I’m talking a visit to my girlfriends in Minneapolis, the Badlands, Mount Rushmore, Deadwood, Black Hills, Devil’s Tower, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, Grand Tetons, and Spokane with mandatory stops in small town USA along the way. We have no idea where we will live or what we will do when we get to Seattle, but that’s part of the adventure, right? Wish us luck! I can’t wait to share all of our adventures in the next couple weeks! Oh and of course if you have ANY recommendations we would be so very much appreciative and thankful for your advice and help!!


I’m guest posting for Chelsea today about my tips for packing (how appropriate, huh?) so make sure to stop by! Happy Thursday! 🙂


May Highlights

The five weeks since we’ve been home have absolutely flown by, between family get togethers, catching up with friends, and attempting to figure out our next steps (i.e. job, place to live), life has been anything but boring. We are enjoying every minute of this time with friends/family as well as our remarkably flexible daily schedules. Here are a few highlights from the month of May:


  1. Cobb Salad with Avocado for a healthy lunch date at Panera with mom
  2. Cheering on my brother at his final track meet as a junior
  3. Can’t get enough of Joe Fresh’s collection for JCPenney’s
  4. My new June Ab challenge. Join me? Please?
  5. Rough day for these three ladies – comfy blanket and napping through Casablanca
  6. Memorial Day donuts – I mean we HAD to, they had patriotic sprinkles!
  7. Dressing up my favorite Gap denim with a floral blouse and heels
  8. Taste testing at the local brewery
  9. Can’t believe my sister-in-law graduated high school, all grown up and beautiful
