New Mexico/Colorado July 2013 Roadtrip

New Mexico/Colorado July 2013 Roadtrip

Holy Smokes! I tell you what–I’m shocked that I’m getting up this post just days after returning from the trip. Must be a Trish record.  Last week we took our first major roadtrip as a family. We drove to New Mexico (in the mountains between Taos and Angel Fire) and spent the night then headed to Durango, Colorado for a few days before returning back to New Mexico and finally back home.  The mileage each […]

The Road Goes On Forever

The Road Goes On Forever

Summer makes me think of roadtrips. Perhaps this is because when we were younger we took a lot of roadtrips as part of our summer travels–driving from Toronto to Maine or Toronto to Pennsylvania, from Dallas to Florida or Arizona or California or Utah. Even as an adult roadtrips have been a main part of my travels with Scott. You’ve probably heard me say that I fell in love with Scott in the car and […]

The Trip that Kinda Wasn’t

The Trip that Kinda Wasn’t

South Padre Island I have been nagging asking Scott to go down to South Texas (where he’s from) for months and months so when I found out he would be traveling there for business I booked tickets for Elle and I to fly down Friday night and all three of us fly back together on Sunday. We got a condo on South Padre Island and made plans for friends to come stay with us. On […]

Ireland 2012 – Part 1

Ireland 2012 – Part 1

In October of last year, Scott and I took a trip to Ireland as a part of a package deal that I found via Travelzoo–they send out weekly emails with deal all over the world and while I was looking for a cruise, I couldn’t pass up this particular deal as part of SceptreTours. We flew to Dublin on a Saturday from Dallas (via Orlando) and arrived Sunday morning. The package included hotels in four […]

Sunrise at Haleakala Crater – Maui 2012

Sunrise at Haleakala Crater – Maui 2012

When you ask people what to do in Hawaii, one of the most common responses is that you must go see the sunrise over Haleakala Crater. Along with this comes the muttering that in order to do this you will also need to wake up at 3 in the morning and dress warmly. No matter how much you want to scoff at either of these mutterings, don’t. Leave your condo at 3 in the morning […]

A Weekend on the Ranch

A Weekend on the Ranch

Over the long weekend we headed to “the ranch” for a few days–Scott’s parents have a place way out in the middle Texas (we say west Texas but it’s really right smack in the middle–south of Abilene if you know your Texas geography), and since Elle was born we haven’t been out as often as we’d like. We took advantage of a cousin’s wedding to really take in the scenery. And since I’m still sitting […]

Bucket List – Or 60 Before 60

Bucket List – Or 60 Before 60

A bucket list is a list of items you’d like to do before you kick the bucket. Nice, huh? :) I don’t remember when I started making a bucket list but I’m pretty sure I was on a roadtrip with Scott. If I think really hard I imagine that we were on our grand Sturgis/Yellowstone trip, but I’m not positive. Either way, I do all my best scheming on the road. I’ve slowly added items […]

Off Again

Off Again

Long story short we flew to Columbus Ohio last night and are driving back to Dallas today and tomorrow. Crazy I know. 1,000 miles in two days. One of the things we’ll be having long philosophical discussions over is when you can check off a state (or place) from the list of places you’ve been to. Does driving through count? Eating a meal? Spending the night? Airport layover? What do you think?? See you Monday! […]

Oh We’re Going to a Hukilau

Oh We’re Going to a Hukilau

A huki huki huki huki hukilau This is the song that has been stuck in my head for a day–over and over and over.  Why? We booked a family vacation to Maui this summer!!  As in all of my immediate family!!  You can be assured that I’ll be practicing my hula, as seen below, while I patiently wait for the time to hop on the plane. Scott and I went to Oahu three years ago (zomg, […]

Arkansas Motorcycling Take Two

Arkansas Motorcycling Take Two

Oh you guys. I was so disappointed when I looked through my pictures from our bike trip last weekend and realized I only had a handful of shots to share (besides the helmet head shot you already saw). I guess that’s the downside of taking an SLR while riding on a motorcycle through the Ozark Mountains. So many times I gasped in awe of the beauty surrounding me but trying to find a place to […]
