Fairy Creek Falls, Fernie, B.C.


On May Long (wow that was so long ago) Ryan and I took the dogs on a dog-cation to Fernie and after doing a pretty intense climb up Mount Hosmer, we opted to do a short, easy hike on Sunday and that was Fairy Creek Falls. You start the hike at the parking lot of the Visitors Centre and be…

Our May Long Dog-Cation in Fernie


When Ryan and I were in Seattle I asked him if we could go away just us for May Long because we were separated for a good chunk of April while I was travelling to LA, Vancouver, and Seattle. He said if we got a hotel he would go because every May Long he has gone camping he would get…

Ferry & Beach Adventures in Washington


When I lived in the Seattle area one of my family’s favourite things to do was go on a “Ferry Adventure.” The Washington State ferry system is amazing and there is no better feeling than gliding along the water on a short 20-40 minute “cruise” for $5, less than the cost of a movie. While I was in Seattle this…

Sweetest Bachelorette in Vancouver


We are all in full wedding mode here in Seattle getting ready for my sister Laura’s big day this Saturday! But I had a spare 30 minutes and I wanted to share our funny adventures in Vancouver for her bachelorette party. The theme of the movie was the “The Sweetest Thing” after one of our favorite movies to watch as…

2XU Training Camp- Day 3- Power, Speed & Hot Yoga


Getting sick of my day by day recaps of the 2XU Ultimate Performance Training Camp? Too bad! Actually- this is the last recap, though I still have more coming that will be focused on areas we discussed such as sleep, alignment,  etc.  but Day 3 was our last official day as campers. Like my last two days, I popped out…

2XU Training Camp- Day 2- Strength & SUP


Day 2 of the 2XU Ultimate Performance Training camp was my favourite day I think! Every day was awesome but this day we went paddle boarding which I’ll go into a little more later. We started off at the Yard to talk about alignment, refuelling and recovery and work on strength. We were introduced to two companies, Bonk Breaker (protein…

2XU Training Camp- Day 1- Tar & Beach Volleyball


On Day 1 we had the morning off for those who travelled across the world (Australia, Hong Kong, Norway, Sweden, UK) to try to acclimatize to the new time zone. I made the most of my morning by getting up at 6 am and hitting the beach for a relaxing beach side-walk. My walk was a little spoiled when I went…

2XU Training Camp- The Place, The People, The Gear


Ok my lovely readers- I HAVE to buckle down and finally share the details of my AMAZING trip to the 2XU Ultimate Performance Training Camp in Hermosa Beach, California last week. It looks like I have about 6-7 posts coming! Recaps of the days and then specific area focused topics we talked about such as sleep, alignment, etc. I’m hoping…

Las Vegas Trip Recap


  I never had any desire to go to Las Vegas. The thought of staying up late drinking and gambling never appealed to me but when my little brother wanted to go to Vegas for his 21st birthday with the siblings, my ticket was booked. Allegiant Rant I have to take a moment to talk about how disgusted I was…

Homestead Crater, Utah


I first learned about Homestead Crater while watching the travel channel (back when I still had cable) two years ago with Ryan. I immediately texted my brother and sister in law (who live in SLC area) and told them we have to go there on my next visit. It’s located in Midway, Utah, about an hour from SLC and it…

Ringing in the New Year with Utah Adventures


I’m back! I had a glorious week and a half off where I haphazardly checked my social media and email, but not much. It was major road tripping week for me as I drove from Magrath to the Tri-Citites, Washington, to Salt Lake City and back! My family Christmas was amazing filled with lots of laughter. I won’t go into…

Wedding Shopping in Seattle


I know I’ve been MIA lately but 1. Working three jobs, 7 days a week is EXHAUSTING and 2. I was in Seattle wedding dress shopping for my sister! These trips always get me so conflicted because while I hate the traffic and gloomy weather of Seattle, I love the restaurants and shops and galleries and energy of the city.…

Rainy Weekend in Glacier National Park


This recap is a little late but life has been crazy these days. Actually, when is it ever not crazy? For the long weekend, Ryan and I packed up the dog and headed to Glacier National Park to camp in the Apgar Campground with Ryan’s parents. They were staying the week and invited us to stay in their camper and…

Tips for Road Trips With a Dog


Over Christmas holidays I embarked on a 13 hour road trip to Seattle with my dog Rocky. I was a little nervous about how he would do but he actually loved it and I had no problems with him. Also, I noticed border guards would start talking a little nicer to me after they saw Rocky pop his head out…

Washington Trip 2013


I spent a week earlier in the month hanging out with family in Washington. It wasn’t quite the most thrilling trip as some unexpected bills took away most of my mad money. But I had a great time with my family and had fun bumming around. The highlight of my trip was the girls visit to Queen Mary’s Tea Room…

Enjoying a solo road trip


Last week I cleaned my car from top to bottom in preparation for a 13 hour drive by myself to Seattle. Ryan couldn’t understand why I would clean it when it was going to get dirty on the trip but that’s exactly why; less dirt and garbage that will build up. Plus I find when my car is clean I…
