cross county drive, part 2

continuing on our drive through louisiana, we decided to stop by duck commander and get some food from bergeron's boudin + cajun meats. there is nothing like some good cajun cooking! yummmmmmm.

we finally made it to texas! and it was absolutely beautiful. i fell in love with buc-ee's, the open roads, beautiful skyline... and thought i was going to die while driving through dallas. but... i made it! and vowed to never drive through that place ever again

we stayed at campers paradise rv park,  and it wasn't a bad little place! although there was a lot of noise because of the airport being so close, it was close to the interstate and places to eat. as you can see below... somehow alice was always so tired at night - like she did anything but sleep in the car or bark at passing cars. :)

and we were off again!

...until the dodge decided to be uncooperative and i was left with all 4 dogs in my car while the truck was getting the electric fan clutch replaced. 

finally! we were off again. and that sunset! absolutely gorgeous. 

we arrived in amarillo and couldn't NOT stop at big texan. 

as we were leaving the great state of texas... we made a quick stop at cadillac ranch!


enjoy, friends!

happy 2017!

"new year, new me"

i don't want to change, i want grow.
i want to expand my horizons.
i want to learn new things.
and i'd really like to get a grasp on this "life" thing... but that's debatable.

zack and i have completely jumped out of our comfort zone, 2500 miles from where we called home. i'd say that we've lived enough new years resolutions for an entire suburb...


there are a few goals that i would like to accomplish this next year.

-would i like to lose some weight, get in shape? yeah, sure... but i'm not going to focus entirely on weight. i want to be healthy. i want to feel healthy.

-i'd like to climb a few mountains. nothing big, nothing out of country (yet). i want to explore. i want to immerse myself in nature. i want peace and i want quiet.

-every day, i'd like to write. whether its a sentence about my day or a couple pages from a writing prompt, i feel as if it would be just enough to release some creative juices.

-i want to learn a new language. something useful, something that makes me look smart. you know, no big deal.

-i really really really really really would like to conquer yoga and not kill myself. that's all.

-i want to learn to paint. maybe a self portrait, maybe a beautiful mountain landscape. something that will allow me to work with colors and express the views i see on a daily basis.

anyone else have any goals that they would like to accomplish this year?

enjoy, friends!

guess who didn't stay 6 feet apart during quarantine?

hello, everyone!  we're super excited to announce that we are naturally, spontaneously, unexpectedly... pregnant!  we remain entirely op...
