On July 20th JP and I boarded a flight to Portland, OR. It was a quick three night trip then on to St Louis, MO to tie up some loose ends. Luckily my friend Nicole who lives in San Antonio was also flying to Portland that day. She was in Portland for a computer geek […]

This morning we woke up in West Virginia and headed out for the last leg of our road trip. We drove through Ohio. Other than stopping for lunch and once for gas we didn’t really do anything but drive. Oh I did see this sign on the wall in the restaurant. Then we made it […]

We woke up this morning in Hershey, PA. Can you guess why we detoured to Hershey if we are headed to West Virginia? If you said it was to go see Hershey Chocolate World then you are correct. This place has been on my to see list for a long time. The whole town of […]

We spent A LOT of time in the car today… A LOT. We started in Corolla, NC and ended up in Hershey, PA by way of Dover, DE. The drive is only 400 miles but it took us over 8 hours because we were on a two lane highway the whole way through Delaware. Hello […]

Since we took such a late flight last night we didn’t get to the Benson Hotel in downtown Portland, OR until around midnight. After we checked-in at the desk and had our keys we took the elevator to our room on the 9th floor. As we were walking down the hall I told JP that […]

According to Urban Dictionary: A common nickname for Atlanta popularized throughout the United States and abroad for over two decades by the marketing efforts of the Atlanta Convention Bureau and various trade and tourist organizations. The “Hot” in “Hotlanta” refers to the […]

How come no one ever says “TGIT”? So we are in Denver and I totally planned ahead when I packed for this trip. Does anyone still remember that the Seattle Seahawks beat up the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl this year? Yes, the answer is yes they do! I went into Starbucks this morning […]

This morning JP had meetings in the morning but a few hours to spare in the afternoon. Before he left this morning he asked what I wanted to do today. The marketing from the 80′s and 90′s must have worked because I asked him where Golden, CO is. He told me to look into it […]

This afternoon JP and I got on a flight to Denver, CO. Checking the weather before heading somewhere in the middle of April doesn’t seem necessary. Well… it is! This is a SnapChat that I sent. And this is what it looked like on our drive from Denver International Airport to the Hotel Monaco in […]

The corporate headquarters for the company that JP works for is in Monroe, LA. Yes… Monroe, LA of all places. When he told me last week that he needed to be there this week I was all about going with him. I mean I love to travel and see new things. You can make the […]

This morning JP and I got on a flight to Portland, OR. Just for the record noise canceling head phones are amazing. I don’t think I have ever told you guys this before but when they come around with snacks I always ask for pretzels instead of peanuts. I happened to have a bag of […]

This morning JP and I hopped on a flight from St Louis to Portland with a short layover in Denver. After we boarded our flight in Denver they told us that because of severe weather in Portland there is a chance our flight might get diverted to another city. I really wanted them to send […]

If you have ever traveled with me then you already know… I am a underpacker. And sometimes (most of the time) I don’t really even pack at all. If I am traveling with JP I will throw a few things in his suitcase, put my makeup bag in my purse and that is it. I […]

Last night JP and I took a late flight from San Antonio, TX to Portland, OR. We almost always stay at Kimpton Hotels and since there are three of them in Portland we tried a different one this time. Check out the view from just outside the doors this morning. Portland is so beautiful. On […]

On Sunday JP and I flew to Portland, OR because he has to be there for work this week. Check out my new iPhone case. And how appropriate is my sweatshirt. We always try to stay at Kimpton Hotels when we travel. If you ask for a pet goldfish when you check in they will […]
