What was that we said about staying on top of our blog posts? Oh that's right, something about not procrastinating for an entire month. Oh well, we did our best. Sort of. Okay, not really. Anyway! We are currently freezing our butts off in Colorado and making our way towards Utah but we do have … Continue reading Austin, Texas
Aside from an ant fiasco, our last week in Florida was exactly what we needed to recover from non-stop chaos of The Mini-Trip. We worked and got caught up on the blog and even celebrated Eli's birthday (Happy Birthday, honey!). In comparison to the first time we were in Florida for three weeks, this stay … Continue reading Louisiana!
After loitering around Connecticut for two and a half weeks, we finally made our leave and began the second half of our voyage. We decided against going to New York City this time around just so we wouldn't end up spending too much time in Connecticut, which probably would have been smarter now that we … Continue reading New Jersey and Pennsylvania
After much deliberating, we finally made the choice between seeing New York and Boston. It was a difficult choice but we came to the conclusion that it would just be so much cooler if we could...see both. One at a time though, the first being one of the most historic places in America. Boston, Massachusetts … Continue reading Bawston, Massachusetts
When you ask a local Connecticutian what there is to do in the area, you will get one of two responses; a dead blank stare along with the question "Are you being serious?", or a loud and cackling laugh.

With sorrow in our hearts, we said goodbye to Chicago and continued eastward into more unfamiliar territory. Stop number one: Grand Haven, Michigan As we have continued to clock miles and months and states on our trip, we can't help but note how much we miss our Nevada friends. Fortunately for us, three whole Nevada … Continue reading Around Michigan We Go!
Warning: this post is going to contain a lot of food descriptions. You will get hungry. After many long hours of driving and sooooo many miles logged into our trip total, we finally pulled up to the home of one of Eli's coworkers, Pete. He and his wife, Rachel, graciously invited us into their home … Continue reading Chicago, Illinois
We made a quick stop in the Snoqualmie area to visit with an old family friend and enjoy the six-hundredth waterfall that we have seen since leaving the vast nothingness deserts of Nevada. Not to discredit Snoqualmie Falls either, it was definitely gorgeous. From there, we decided to make a quick detour on our way … Continue reading Germany…I mean, Leavenworth.
Surprise! We are still alive! We had a long, lazy week in which we neglected the blog...or rather, I neglected it and Eli worked. We left La Jolla on Easter Sunday to make our way up the coast a bit further. We made a quick stop in Carlsbad before reaching our final destination and spent … Continue reading Carlsbad Flowers and Long Beach Eats
