The trip to Pennsylvania took us through Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and finally PA! I added a few new states to my “States I’ve Been To” list. Those would include North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. And do you know which states I hated? North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan! Michigan was the biggest offender. I’m sorry if you live there, but good grief it was a horrible drive! Never let me go there again!
After a month of travel across the US we’re back on the west coast!
I wish I were still on the road, but I’m happy to be reunited with my little cat, Juniper. She stayed at the house while we were away and we had a good friend come over every day to take care of her and to hang out with her. She was so so happy to see us, but it kind of made me feel bad because she must have missed us so much from the way she’s been acting. She was glued to me the first few days back at home.
So what we’re we doing traveling for a month?
Over the next few months I’m planning on posting photos from the trip and wedding. I want to do a post for each of the main attractions we saw along with photos from all over Route 66. I’m kind of excited to get back to blogging! I felt burned out by it a few months before the trip, but I think maybe I just needed a break from it.
Our friend, D.J., performed the wedding ceremony. The night before the wedding Eric and I went to a local amusement park in PA call Knoebels. Eight friends who were in town for the wedding went to Knoebels with us and we had such a fun night! My best friend Aaron and I went on a ride call the Tilt-A-Whirl with D.J. The ride tilts and whirls you around and around in a circle on an incline. As we were tilting and whirling around in the dark with bright lights flashing I declared that this was the best bachelorette party ever! Girls night!…three girls and seven guys.
Most of the food at the wedding was homemade aside from the veggie burgers. Eric and I took control of the grill and served our wedding guests. Now we want to buy a grill for our house! All I can think about are grilled veggie burgers, roasted corn and kabobs with pineapple on them!
This is such an awesome video!
A boy questions his mom about eating animals and then tells us why we shouldn’t eat them!
My favorite quotes from the video are…
“Fish are animals…octopus are animals…chicken are animals…cows are animals…pigs are animals.”
“I don’t like that they die…I like that they stay standing up.”
“These animals…you gotta take care of them..and not eat them!”
Son- “Why are you crying?”
Mom- “I’m not crying…I’m just touched by you.”
Son- “I’m doing something beautiful.”
OMG! You are doing something beautiful! And I like that they stay standing up too.
I’ve been neglecting this little blog of mine! Things have been so busy the last two weeks with preparing for the wedding and our Kickstarter project. Yesterday I realized that it was exactly TWO weeks until we leave for Pennsylvania. That’s TWO weeks until I’m off for a month. Woo hoo and OMG I didn’t realize that I only have two weeks to get ready.
I’m ready for the planning stage for the wedding to be over with. So much planning for a small wedding!
Another worry of mine is leaving my little cat behind. It really makes me sad and I try not to think about it, but I can just see her now looking out the front window, watching us drive away. Baby kitty! We do have a close friend coming over to the house everyday to check on her and feed her and play with her, but I feel so guilty! Baby kitty, if we had a camper I would take you with me in a heartbeat!
Other things on my mind lately…holy tornadoes in the Midwest. It’s making me really nervous to be traveling through that area on Route 66. Oklahoma City is being slammed yet again with tornadoes today. We’re going to be driving right through Oklahoma City. Get out of there you mean old tornado!
Tomorrow there will be a day trip fun! I’ve been so stressed out this week, it will be wonderful to get away for a day!
Today was another fabulous mail day! I don’t know about you, but I love getting letters and packages in the mail. When we get mail though it’s not just for us…it’s for Juniper too! She demands to hop in every box that comes through our door. She will check out envelopes and junk mail for us too. You never know…maybe we missed something!
Last week I had a treat yo self moment from Cisthene. I’ve been eyeing some bangles for a few weeks. I just went for it. Treat yo self!
Happy Thursday! Come on Friday!
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?
