Each year I try to make Andrew’s birthday special – like extra special. It seems like every year it becomes harder and harder for me to think of ideas… last year, I took Andrew skydiving so this year I knew I had to think of something just as crazy and just as fun. So, why not Vegas?
From arriving at the terminal with our luggage – we were completely lost. From there, the three of us managed to survive our first cruise. With that being said, we learned A LOT! Here are 18 things I wish I knew before my first cruise.
We have this little tradition that we spend our Thanksgiving exploring a new city each year and this year we chose Austin. We ate some incredible food, saw the best street art, and listen to some Austin legends. Austin is weird and I hope it always stays that way. I’m finally sharing with you guys our weekend guide and all of the awesome things we got to enjoy!
While we are looking forward to moving again and escaping the weather, we are still trying to make the best out of our time here! With that being said, we have a Texas “bucket list” and Dallas was next on our list!
Yellowstone is such a large and popular national park so I had to organize my blog post for each day we spent at the world’s oldest national park. So if you read our Yellowstone National Park Day 1 Guide, we left off at Gardiner, Montana where we stayed the night.
Since we chose to drive the more scenic and dramatic route on the Beartooth Pass to Yellowstone, the closet park entrance was the Northeast Entrance. Since we only had a few days to explore Yellowstone, we wanted to cover as much ground as possible without backtracking!
Denver is the capital of Colorado and home to four major sports teams, major museums and a wide variety of restaurants that make the city a destination in its own right! Although I only had the day to explore, I was determined to make the most out of it!
I thought Omaha would be a lot like a Little House on the Prairie episode, but Nebraska has more than just farm land. Not only is Omaha that largest city in Nebraska but it’s also America’s 42nd largest city!
We survived New Orleans!! We watched the St Patrick's day parade on Bourbon Street which covered us with beads and silk flowers! We went to Mardi Gras World to learn about the true traditions of Fat Tuesday and adventured all throughout the city! My camera is full of photos and most importantly, I got a full dose of my best friend!
Andrew and I decided to explore San Antonio last weekend. It was only a 3 hour drive for us and we got a killer deal on a river front hotel! We were able to walk or take a river taxi from our hotel which made everything so much easier.
The 115 acre property has 32 springs, which several feed the manmade pool and provide the natural pool which flows into Lake Travis. The property also features a beautiful Butterfly Garden, a waterfall, and fun rope swing!
