Birmingham – the Best Walls in the City

Back in November, my friend Hannah and I traveled down to Alabama for a conference. In between presenting and attending panels, we took a lot of time to explore this amazing city. I’m dividing up the posts to keep it from being completely overwhelming (I’ll be following up with a food post and a post on The Civil Rights Institute), so the first post is dedicated to the amazing backdrops in the city.

The two apps you need if you like to save money

It’s become kind of a joke with some of my friends and family about how many coupons I have or what deal I’m currently stalking. I’ll own it – I like saving money. And today I’m spilling the beans about two of my favorite apps that help me do that in an awesome way!

Austin, Texas Bachelorette (Final Day!)

Tuesday was our last day in Austin, and we still had so many things to do! I knew we’d be eating a ton on this trip, so I figured another workout class might be a good idea.

The indoor surfboards were out of our comfort zone, but not as much as this…

Austin, Texas Bachelorette (Day 3)

Today was the last day for most people in our group, so I wanted us to go out with a (doughnut) bang!

If you’re doing any type of research on Austin, Gourdough’s seems to always be popping up! And since they’re all about doughnuts, and if you’re even a little bit familiar with my blog, you know that I didn’t hesitate to take us here!

Austin, Texas (March Bachelorette- Day 2)

Sunday was another busy day in Austin!

One of my sister’s requests for her weekend was to have at least one workout class. I did a ton of research trying to find the perfect, unique class. There were lots of cycling and CrossFit classes, but I was determined to find something totally unique!

I think I succeeded 😉

Gettin’ Weird in Austin (March Bachelorette Party – Day 1)

Austin, Texas is just one of those cities that looks like a ton of fun. If you Google ‘bachelorette destinations’, it’s also at the top of many of those lists. Since I’d never been (and wanted to go!), I planned my sister’s bachelorette party and picked Austin as our party destination.

The Spring Break Countdown

The daffodils and cherry trees are blooming, which means spring is here, right? I was hoping so, but it’s been one rainy and gloomy week and weekend! My parents, who live in Virginia, said it’s rained so much the last week+ that people have been out of school and in landslides. I’m not sure if that’s better than snow or not.

All I know is that there’s one more week of school before spring break, and I AM SO READY.

A Quick Trip to Magic Kingdom

I’m getting one more quick post in for 2018! And just like the post from Epcot, this one is again focused on delicious snacks you need to eat, but this time at Magic Kingdom! Of all the parks, Magic Kingdom, to me, seems to have the least appealing sit-down restaurants (I’m no fan of buffets and that’s what a lot of them seem to be), so snacking is my go-to at this park.

Happy Holidays from Disney!

Merry Christmas Eve, y’all! The last few weeks have been a whirlwind, and I absolutely cannot believe that tomorrow is Christmas! With trying to finish school, get grades in, and Christmas shopping, we’ve hardly had time to breathe. John had to go to Orlando for some training classes, so we decided to make a mini vacation out of it and stop by Disney!
