We’re heading off to road trip today! Tomorrow? Depends when you read this. It’s a super short one– we’re doing a much longer road trip at the end of April. SO this one I guess is the preparatory one– to get Marlowe used to it. I know I’ve mentioned it, but she’s not a big road turn girl like me. I mean, I sort of get it though– road tripping in Florida is NOT exciting. But I am excited for tomorrow, haha! We’re heading to the west coast– and you know whats crazy? I’ve NEVER been! I’m looking forward to checking out west coast beaches– it’s crazy how different a beach can be from another, you know? Even here in Florida. Like, we dont have sand dollars on the east coast– but the west coast is apparently swimming in them– and loads of seashells. Maybe I’ll find my first shark tooth, who knows.
The beaches in Puerto Rico were certainly different. The waves were HUGE. I’m not a surfer, but if I was, I would be excited. I did buy a wet suit once though– to attempt to go in the beach up north, I did not succeed.
My mom still laughs at it. I think she still has my wet suit too. Next time I’m up north, I’ll be trying that bad boy on— and not going in the water again.
I miss Puerto Rico. Finding food was often difficult, and it’s so much like Florida, but I do miss being there and hanging out with Christine every day. When she goes back, we’ll probably go back. And sit on the beaches there– even though we have beaches here. And eat acai bowls there– even though we have acai bowls here. And cook all the meals there that we can cook here, etc.
Because sometimes it’s nice just getting away— even if it’s to another place thats so much like home.
I’ve had a few friends comment on the frequency of me wearing these jeans. But I can’t help it. I made a pact to not buy new, non organic and non sustainable pants– and I can’t find another cut and fit that fits me like these. Is it terrible if.I break the promise to myself and buy another pair? No, but I know I shouldn’t. So until I find another pair of jeans that fit me like these, that are organic, I guess I’ll wear these everyday.
Within an hour of arriving I spotted this place and knew we’d have to check it out. We patiently waited until one day it was finally open. Then we went back three more times, haha.
It was so rad– there were no sea shells at all– it was so rare to see one and then out of no where, this girl bends down and picks up a sand dollar! I’ve NEVER found a sand dollar at the beach. We were both SUPER excited!
So yeah! We’re heading west tomorrow and I’m looking forward to it. If you guys happen to have recommendations, please do let me know– like I said, we’ve never been 🙂 Oh, and we’re bringing our stinky dog with us– so if you happen o know of a pet friendly hotel that doesn’t cost a million bucks, that’d be great too 🙂
Hope you guys are having a great week! It’s starting off a bit hectic, but good over here. Finally feeling like I’m getting better from last weeks death feeling. I even worked out again today 🙂 Feels good, maybe tomorrow I’ll have abs 😉 j/k
Happy Tuesday, friends!
