Happy 2017 💕

It’s so hard to believe it’s already 2017. Where has the time gone?! As crazy as it is, I’m happy that it’s here. There is one main reason I can’t wait for 2017–and that reason is that in a few short months our little lady will make her big arrival.  Being pregnant has been a…

Proud to be a NITTANY LION and a MOM!

I’m not quite sure how to describe how good this Monday feels! This past weekend was one of the best weekends ever! Not only did I get to see a whole bunch of my friends and be in Happy Valley…we got to be in Happy Valley the weekend that PSU beat Ohio state 24-21. This…

Savannah, you’re beautiful ❤️

This past weekend was one for the record books. It was simply just a great one. I love when I have a weekend that reminds me why it is so important to work hard during the week to fund a fabulous weekend. My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary on October 3rd, and…

Back To Reality…

Today marks our first day back to work since April 5th!  It is hard to believe.  I feel like we were talking so much about this trip and now it has come and gone so quickly.  I have to say though, I was definitely ready to come back home.  I enjoyed our adventure and all…

Day 8 (Osaka to Beijing)

We arrived pretty late in Osaka the other night after a few train switches. We ended up checking into our hotel, which I actually booked a smoking room (ugh, so gross) and now some of my clothes smell like stale cigarettes, I wasn’t happy. They were completely full so they couldn’t switch us out. The…

Day 7 (Miyajima)

Miyajima was easily one of my favorite places that we visited in Japan!! It was absolutely beautiful with a bunch of different things to do. We took a ferry from Hiroshima, which was about a 45 minute ride to the island. We walked to the ferry dock from our hotel, which was about 10 minutes….

Day 6 (Hiroshima)

We left Kyoto by train to head to Hiroshima. There wasn’t a direct train so we had to switch in Shin-Osaka. It was pretty easy.  We got to Hiroshima and had to take one of the street cars to our hotel. It was pretty easy and dropped us off right near our hotel. We are…

Day 5 (Kyoto Temple Bus Tour)

Yesterday we traveled the entire day on a coach bus around Kyoto to see the temples. It was very funny because when we got on the bus at 8:30 am…we were the only ones without gray hair. Let me tell you those senior citizens were quite pushy, we could barely get off the bus at…

Day 4 (Kyoto)

Yesterday we left Yokohama by train to get to our next stop Kyoto. We took the bullet train from the Shin-Yokohama station, which was super easy and comfortable. We had an assigned seat which was nice. It took us about 2 hours and 20 minutes to get here.  We are staying at the Hotel MyStays,…

Get ready Japan, here we come!

I am writing this blog from 37,000 feet in the air on our way to Japan. My blogs these next few days are going to focus on our trip and our daily excursions.  I love this blog because I can share whatever I want and I will always have it to preserve the memories I’m…

Our Trip To VT…Weekend Recap

This weekend was certainly a lot of fun and filled with a lot of sleep (for me and not my sister or her husband haha).  We went up to VT to visit with my brother-in-law’s Aunt and Uncle, who kindly hosted us, and to celebrate my brother-in-law’s birthday.  We had so much fun!  It took…

My TOP 6 Favorite places to visit in KEY WEST!

So as most of you know I took a trip over President’s Weekend to Key West, FL.  This was my first time in Key West and I really loved it!  It was a quirky place, with an interesting crowd, but we had lots of fun exploring and enjoying the nice weather.  There are a few…
