Tuesday Tidbits: Travel Tips & Ideas

Welcome to this week’s Tuesday Tidbits! As I will be taking a short weekend trip, I’ve been searching for some advice on packing and flying, as well as checking out adorable travel gear (for fun, of course – my unemployed self is currently only dreaming of even having disposable income). I love travel, and honestly find it strange when I haven’t been in an airport in awhile. Even though it’s only a quick trip home, I’m excited to be packing my bags for a few days.

What I’m Loving This Week:

→ I’ve had this Kate Spade carry on bag hanging out in my Pinterest Wishlist board for awhile. I love the colors! Maybe someday….

→ Food is one of the best parts of traveling to new places! Erin over at Her Heartland Soul posted this fantastic recap of the food she and her husband enjoyed on their recent trip to Puerto Vallarta. So many delicious photos!

→ I visited Victoria in British Columbia almost a decade ago, and remember so many beautiful sights. Now that we live not that far from Canada, I would love to go back.

→ Here’s one of my favorite photos from our New Year’s Eve trip to Miami. Our room had a perfect view of the ocean.miami beach

Still, when the weather is too cold to enjoy a workout outside, the inside of a gym can get pretty drab and boring. It helps to have a reminder of what I’m capable of and some outdoors fun that’s happened in the past.

This past September (on my birthday, in fact!) I participated in my first mud run. I’ve done one 5k before, and was a spectator at a Tough Mudder my boyfriend did a while back. My goal is ultimately to run a Tough Mudder with him, but I thought it might be better to start smaller and work my way up.
