Hope everyone is having a great week so far! Only a few more day until Christmas!
The hubs and I are running errands today, yay!…. not. I had to make a list of all of the things that we have to do so that I wouldn’t forget anything (because I always forget something).
For today’s challenge, I’m going to list six places and their significance to me :)
6. Vancouver, British Columbia
After I graduated high school, my best friend, her family, and I all took a trip to visit her family in Canada for her 18th birthday. She is Filipino, so the 18th birthday is a big deal. They had a huge party (it was seriously like a wedding!) and we were there for 10 days. I got to see so much on that trip. We went to Victoria, Vancouver, Seattle, and Whistler. It was so different than anything else I had done and I had an amazing time.
5. New York City, NY
Last year, Nick and I went to Connecticut to visit his best friend. While we were there, we visited Boston and NYC. It was my first time to the Northeast and I was lucky enough to go to the city during Christmas time. It was so beautiful and it felt so surreal the entire time. Everything I’d seen on tv was there and HUGE. I really would love to go again soon (hopefully to see my sorority sister and fellow blogger Jessica)!
4. Seattle, WA
(Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture of myself with any landmarks)
Seattle was one of the coolest cities I have ever been to. It was actually sunny the day that we went, and all of the music and landmarks around were just very… cool, haha. We went to a music museum, Pike Place Market, the first ever Starbucks, and the Aquarium. I want to go and spend more time looking around!
3. Cambridge, MA
When we visited Nick’s best friend in Connecticut, we also took a trip to Boston/Cambridge. We did not know, however, that once we got there it would start pouring snow. So poor me, in my silk scarf, knit cap, and suede boots, had to purchase a new scarf and hat to keep me warm! It was really cool walking around in the snow, though, since I’m from South Carolina and don’t get to experience that often. We spent most of our time in Cambridge (where Harvard/MIT are) and the buildings were so beautiful. This photo is from Nick’s iPhone; it was too snowy for me to have my camera out!
2. Charleston, SC
In March of 2010, Nick surprised me with a trip to Charleston for our 2 year anniversary. He wouldn’t tell me where we were going until it was pretty clear. We spent two nights in a nice little hotel on the water. On our first full day there, we walked around King St., had lunch at the Mellow Mushroom, went to my “secret place” on Mt. Pleasant, and had dinner at Shem Creek. After dinner, Nick took me out to the beach on Sullivan’s Island and proposed! I had no idea that he was planning to do that, and it was so sweet :) Charleston will always have a special place in my heart.
1. Houston, TX
This past June, Nick and I took a trip to Houston to find an apartment. We made the entire trip (16 hours) in one day. It was pretty rough! Above is the Tex Mex food that we had, a place called Lupe Tortilla. It was so good and unlike any food I’d ever had before. I’m really excited to move to Houston in just a few short weeks and to experience all of the new things with my hubby.
