Delightful Moments – My Vacation Recap!

Hey, hey, hey, it’s Saturday!

How was your week? I hope great! My week has been great but I’m really starting to get some major anxiety about moving in a week. We’re only moving to a different apartment complex, so it’s not nearly as stressful as moving to a different state, which we did two years ago this month! But man, I keep looking around my apartment at everything I have to pack and everything I want to get rid of and I’m just like OMGGGGGGG get me out of here, let me go live in a fancy hotel for the week, and tell me when the packing and the moving is all over with. HA! I wish. I’m too much of a control freak to not pack up my own apartment.

Does anyone have any useful packing tips? I feel like I’m a pretty good packer because I have moved a lot since being out of high school, but anything helps!

On another note, I’ve been missing my family and dogs in Minnesota so I thought I’d recap my little vacation I took back in June to Minnesota!

Every year, my family rents a cabin in Alexandria, MN for one week. The week is filled with a lot of relaxing, waking up whenever I want every morning, eating some really great food, falling asleep on the boat while everyone else fishes (hahaha), receiving endless amounts of love from my pups, being out in the sunshine, jumping into the lake with the dogs, a whole lot of laughing & swearing too much (my family is BIG on swearing), and grocery shopping because my mom is a grocery store-oholic.

Every year my mom and I usually take a day to go shopping in downtown Alexandria. The little shops are super unique and they always have great things!

This year we finally decided to stop at a restaurant to grab lunch at this restaurant called Bello Cucina, and the place was so charming! We got the BEST wine I’ve ever had and a nice little flatbread. The cool thing about this place was that it’s supposedly haunted. My mom and I love things like that. It was once a brothel and then a morgue, so you can imagine some pretty raunchy things probably went on up in there!

Alexandria is cute town that I find to be very peaceful. You feel safe there. & it’s nice that it isn’t very populated, which is quite the change from living in Denver. I always enjoy my week long vacation there with my family so much.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I’m seeing Pretty Lights tonight at Red Rocks, which is going to be absolutely amazing because Pretty Lights ALWAYS kills it & Red Rocks never disappoints!

Delightful Moments – A Quick Little Trip Back Home

Oh boy, has it been a hot minute since I’ve done a blog post.

I started my spring semester about three weeks ago, so I’m trying to get back into the swing of things of trying to balance school, work, homework, sleep, blogging, showering. You get the picture, LOL.

A couple weeks ago, I went back home to Minnesota to celebrate one of my friend’s 21st birthday and spend time with my family. It was a quick little trip but there’s nothing like being back home, regardless of how short it was.

This babe on my left is the reason why I came back home. We celebrated her 21st!! & we had a fun ass time doing it.

I also had a great two days with my mom and step-dad. We watched a couple of scary movies, went to the National Eagle Center that’s in Wabasha, MN, and visited this adorable little cheese factory where we bought way too much cheese and enjoyed a glass of wine while chowing down on some cheese curds.

These four cats live at the cheese factory, and I pretty much fell in love with them. Having these four cats live there is a great marketing strategy, lol! Now every time I’m home, I’m going to want to go and visit them. They were seriously so adorable and so fat, haha.

That’s it for now! We’ll chat soon. I have a couple of Valentine’s Day posts up my sleeve, so stay tuned!

Christmas in Minnesota

There’s nothing better than being able to spend Christmas time with your friends, family, and pets! Minnesota weather is brutal, everyone knows that, but it was SO worth it to spend time with everyone I haven’t seen in forever. Since I didn’t make it back to Minnesota for Thanksgiving, it was extra special to be back for Christmas! I truly am so lucky to have the people I do in my life.

I did a lot of sleeping, relaxing, shopping with my mom, visiting family & friends, eating, cuddling with my dogs & giving them all of my attention, more eating, and having the best time with the most important person there is – my mom.

Marvin is the big baby in the left picture & Makade is the bigger baby in the right picture. These two are seriously my everything. They are one of the best reasons about coming home!

The pictures above are from Christmas Eve! Zach & I also celebrated 4 years on Christmas Day! Like, where does the time go??

All of those presents under our tree were for me.

HA, just kidding. I wish, lol!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and you were able to spend it with the people you love!

Also, have a fantastic New Year’s, whether that’s relaxing at home watching Netflix or going out with friends & being extremely hungover the next day!
