Weekend Guide to Milwaukee in the Spring

A relaxing vacation is never something that my husband and I ever think of plan. We usually plan trips that are centered around exploring a new destination, waking up at the crack of dawn, and going back to our hotel just to sleep. So when our family decided to plan a trip to Cancun this […]

What We Did and Didn’t Do in Cancun

I get a lot of questions on where to go and what to do in Milwaukee from family, friends and out-of-towners. So… I am rounding up 10 activities to do around Milwaukee during each season (starting with fall)! If you’re local, or thinking of popping in for the weekend, these are some awesome activities that […]

Weekend Guide to Milwaukee in the Fall

After a three-day road trip from Chicago, my bother and I had a few days together in Los Angeles before I flew back home. While our main priority was getting him unpacked and settled, we still had plenty of time for some sightseeing. I will warn you, since I didn’t have much time in Los […]

48 Hours in Los Angeles

As the summer months come to a close, and our social calendars start to wind down a bit, I finally found time to write about my road trip to LA with my brother! My Summer was pretty filled with travel, and kicked off with a girls trip to Tennessee, followed by several weekends up north, […]

Road Trip to LA

I recently took a much needed girls weekend to the Smoky Mountains. Since our first ever girls trip to Lake Geneva last Spring, we decided to make our trips a seasonal tradition. Of course, with our busy schedules, we finally managed to book our second trip almost exactly one year later (whoops)! So, I guess we […]

Girls Weekend in the Smokies

Whether it’s a trip through your home state, or a journey through multiple states, having all the essentials for a road trip is crucial. I recently took a nine and a half hour road trip for a girls weekend in the Smoky Mountains, and in typical girl fashion, we packed like we were leaving for nine […]

Road Trip Checklist

It’s taken me a while to write this post, because what I am about to say may upset and shock a few people… Ok, guys. I’m gonna say it! I did not like Vegas (gasp!). On our most recent vacation, Brian and I flew to Phoenix and road-tripped through Northern Arizona. We loved the sleepy […]

48 Hours in St. Louis

This past weekend, Brian and I went to San Antonio for a family wedding. It was a quick trip, but we managed to see a lot of sites! The city in October was beautiful and warm. It was about 80 degrees the whole time we were there, so it was perfect for exploring and walking […]

Exploring Bay View

It’s finally Fall here in Milwaukee, and I couldn’t be happier! Waking up to cool, crisp mornings, seeing the colors change in the trees, and enjoying all of the seasonal flavors really put me in a good mood.

Drinks Around Milwaukee

When researching Iceland, Brian and I quickly discovered that the best way to experience Iceland was by driving your own car. There are plenty of people that use Reykjavik as their home-base and venture out by tour bus, but if you want to go at your own pace and be able to see everything, I […]
