This is my collection of ticket stubs so far this year! I usually try to keep all of my ticket stubs, but I’m trying EXTRA hard this year! I’m not a scrapbooker, but I want to do something to keep these safe. Any ideas?
What have you seen and where have you gone this year?
There are 48 hours left to donate to our Kickstarter project! Get in on that if it tickles your fancy!
I saw a preview for a new show coming soon on the Discovery Channel. ”North America” premieres May 19th. Shows like this make me want to travel forever. I hope you can check it out too!
This past weekend there was a community yard sale in West Seattle. It was a last-minute decision, but we decided to hit the streets and find some deals. The first yard sale we went to had “camera equipment,” in their listing. We went and found cameras! Eric walked away with one camera, but it was only $1! Score!
At the first yard sale I found a letterpress drawer! I’ve been lusting after them for a long time now. They’re usually really really expensive if you can find them for sale online. I found this guy for $5. Win win win! We went to about 30 yard sales, but the only things we bought were at the first house we stopped at. We should have just stopped then and ate vegan donuts!
This week has been a long one. And this was definitely needed!
And while I’m at it here’s another one of my favorites.
But this is my absolute favorite! I pretty much naturally dance like
One of the Best Things I’ve EVER consumed:
The Cubano from South in Leavenworth, Washington. Holiday rice, black beans, fried banana, avocado slices and lettuce in a flour tortilla served with cabbage salad, corn chips and a salsa bar! Tasty goodness for my mouth!
See you soon!
The main reason for my trip to Pennsylvania a few weeks ago was for a Baby Shower for my baby niece! I surprised my sister and didn’t tell her that I was flying in to visit for a week. I made her cry which was kind of funny, but then I felt bad that I made a pregnant women cry. We spent time doing some shopping for the baby, organizing her room and sorting clothing by size.
I had such a fun trip with my family! I was of course happy to see Eric back in Seattle, but I was sad for a few days after coming home. The first few days back for me are always the hardest. You forget…and it’s sad…how much you miss family when you’re away from them for so long. Krista and Tim now have a new computer so we can Skype! I’ve Skyped with them a few times already. Today I was talking to my sister and I could actually SEE the baby kicking. OMG! It was so exciting. The baby is due the day of our wedding, but I’m secretly hoping she arrives early so I can spend a few days with her before the wedding.
Come on out baby girl! I can’t wait to meet you!
“Following our June wedding on the east coast, Sarah and I will be embarking on a honeymoon trip along Route 66. For three weeks, we’ll be photographing the Road and the oddities along it with vintage Polaroid cameras.
Unlike many Kickstarter photography projects, our end goal isn’t a book – it’s the photos themselves. We want to travel Route 66, take photos with vintage Polaroids and send them to people – friends, family, even strangers. Each photo will necessarily be a one of a kind, you will have the only copy in existence. We won’t even have one! . Each will be taken along Route 66 and will in some way capture the essence of the old road. And to be clear, regardless of whether the project is funded, we’ll be traveling Route 66 this summer. The support you give will allow us to purchase film, additional cameras and needed supplies for shipping the photos. Rest assured you will not be funding our vacation.”
In less than two days we actually reached our funding goal! We were so surprised and thankful that people wanted our photos! You can still support the project and we’ll send you photos from the road if you’re interested. Head on over to our Kickstarter page to check it out!
This post needs a cat photo.
I managed to snap a few shots of some of the food I ate while in PA. In central PA, where I was staying, there aren’t many options for vegans/vegetarians if you want to go out to eat. Luckily there’s the college town of Lewisburg that has a cafe with two vegan lunch options. Cherry Alley Cafe used to have some amazing burritos! Vegan and all! I was really disappointed to find that they did away with awesome-burrito. They did have some vegan cookies though. I used to always get their iced chai tea with soy milk too. The barista there was actually kind enough to tell me that the chai mix isn’t vegan. Boo!! I’m assuming there’s dry milk in it. Make your own chai mix, Cherry Alley! Some spices and some grinding and BAM!…chai tea.
My mom did take me to a grocery store to stock up on some avocados, tofu and refried beans though! I usually live on bean burritos when I travel!
Remember my turtle lamp?
