Husband and I took a VERY quick trip to New York last weekend. And by quick I mean less than 24 hours!! We decided last minute that this would be our Christmas presents to each other. We had such a good time and packed so much into that 24 hour period.

Right when we landed we hit the ground running. We went to lunch, checked in our hotel and went to the World Trade Center Memorial. We walked along 5th Avenue into Rockefeller Plaza to see the big tree and all the people ice-skating. We met my cousin for dinner and then headed up to the Top of The Rock. Man you don’t realize you’re kind of afraid of heights, until it’s so dark and windy that can’t see the ground.

The next morning we went to the Today Show (one of my bucket list items, but it wasn’t the big experience that it normally is throughout the week). Then headed to Time Square for some pictures and left. We had lots of coffee and walked everywhere! I mean my bones still hurt from all the walking.

It was Chad’s first time in the city and I hadn’t been since high school! We are hoping to go back for a longer visit but it was so nice to be in the city around Christmas. It actually started snowing right when we landed and were driving over the Brooklyn Bridge!! I love this kind of weather so it was the perfect weekend visit!!

Victoria is by far my favorite place I have traveled to so far. It is an island off of Vancouver, Canada and is such a quaint little European-like town. The weather was absolutely perfect while we were there, which coming from Texas was just what we needed!! I didn’t want to ever leave. I kept telling my husband that we were going to move there. We stayed at the most beautiful resort which was away from the main part of the town but we loved it! We were able to relax and then take a quick 15 minute drive into downtown. Then we took a water taxi over to the Fisherman’s Wharf where we got fish and chips and some ice cream cones.

Victoria is known for the Empress Hotel and their afternoon tea. This is where all these beautiful hydrangeas are. I have never seen more beautiful flowers in a town before!! Everyone had beautiful gardens and there were hanging flower pots covering the streets. We watched some seals for about 30 minutes. Haha! They would clap and lay on their backs until someone gave them fish. I just can’t talk enough about how amazing this place was!! I definitely encourage everyone to go here! We were able to get there by a 3-hour fairy from Seattle and we are back in Seattle today! Be sure to follow along for a few more days while we explore this city.

I wore this look while walking around Downtown Portland yesterday. We are staying here just one night but we got a chance to explore the heart of the city. This tank is my new favorite thing. I love the split on the sides and it comes in several colors. I’ve worn these sandals to walk around Napa and now Portland and they are so comfortable!!

We drove to Thor’s Well on our way to Portland and it was by far the coolest experience I’ve had. The tide was just starting to get high and it would crash over all the rocks out there. Thor’s Well is shown in the bottom two pictures. It’s a big hole and when the wave would crash, it would shoot the water sky high. Such an amazing view! Oregon has some of the best scenery and we got to drive for hours along the coast with the best views. This trip has been full of adventures and I can’t wait to share more with you! Today we are headed up to Seattle and taking a ferry ride over to Victoria, BC.

Chad and I went out to explore the Texas Tulip fields a few weeks ago. I had seen a few people post pictures, and I knew with my love for flowers I would love to go. Chad got us tickets and surprised me with a little date day. If you haven’t been out there yet, I definitely encourage you to go!

This is the perfect, casual weekend outfit for me. I am not normally one for graphic tees but this one is so cute! I was introduced to SheIn within the past year and I was a little skeptical but I haven’t had any problems with them so far. I normally size up but there are normally enough reviews to make a decision on sizing. Now, let’s talk about these jeans. They are my all time favorite – if I could wear them everyday I would. I definitely encourage everyone to invest in these!!
