The Cape!

Our last weekend in Massachusetts was appropriately spent at one of the first landing spots of the Pilgrims: Cape Cod! 

The weather wasn't the best - lots of coastal rain- but it was still plenty warm! We managed to go swimming and floating in the ocean... it wasn't nearly as cold as the Pacific off of Washington and Oregon :)

 I loved all the little shops- especially the high-end interior design ones. I wish I had a little beach cottage I could decorate! We did manage to avoid going into a single tourist-trap t-shirt shop, unlike all the bars we managed to visit. I did sneak into Marc Jacobs and snagged a cute necklace!

Wave Video Bar- I had a blast dancing and watching the videos... Grant didn't so much. I wouldn't recommend this place unless you're okay getting up close and sweaty with a bunch of men.
Harbor Lounge- Best ocean view of all the bars. Both nights we were here it was pretty dead- which just meant more room on the couches for us.
Aqua Bar- has a great view of the harbor, cheap drinks, and is open air for those nice balmy, breezy nights.
Shipwreck Lounge at Brass Key- great outdoor seating area, and a resident cat, need I say more?
Old Colony Tap House- this bar looks like the dingy, forgotten basement of your ex-sailor grandfather. The floor is tilted, the tables is dirty, it is all charm. This was also our favorite place.

The last day in town the skies cleared, the sun came out, and the weather we should have had arrived! We took the Trolley car tour around town before taking off of the Ferry towards Boston.

FYI: I highly recommend taking the ferry from Boston instead of driving (to avoid all the traffic) and staying at Romeo's Holiday, where Stan & Lenny make great hosts!

Road Trip!

We made it from Massachusetts to Colorado in under 3 days! Sorry this is so late, I've been exploring our new neighborhood (even though it's temporary) and hunting for jobs.

Mass -> Niagara Falls

One last time on the Mass Pike!

Niagara Falls! The Maid of the Mist ride was so worth it!

Niagara Falls -> Chicago

Reggie enjoying the hotel bed in NY
Somewhere in Indiana!

The BEAN aka Stormgate or something.

We went really early on a weekday so no one was there...

Chicago -> Denver

I'm a HUGE fan of Bright Eyes/Conor Oberst, so we had to stop at Saddle Creek in Omaha!
Our new neighborhood! We are living by the ballpark for the next couple of weeks.

Big News!

I've been out of the blogging world the last two weeks because of some exciting developments!

A) I quit my job. 

I've been with the firm for 5 years, 2.5 as a paralegal, and I was burned out. It was time for a change and new environment. That said, I'm definitely going to miss all my awesome coworkers, who have become like family!

B) G got a great job. 

Which made point A much easier to swallow.

C) We moved to Colorado. 

For above mentioned job. I'm really excited to be in the Denver Metro area! It's already a lot like my hometown of Seattle. I've missed the mountains, temperate climate, and modern buildings.

Do you use Yelp? I have the iphone app and am newly obsessed with it. 

Lately I've been using it to make all my dining, shopping, and sightseeing decisions. So far I haven't been disappointed, and I realllly love the 'check-in' feature that allows me to track where I've been and unlock deals.

G and I recently went to Cape Cod, and we used Yelp to create a barhopping adventure, and pick some nice places to eat at (and the favorite dishes).

G and I also started up a battle of checking into the most places, and checking in first when we are together :)

If you want to be my Yelp friend, you can add me here!

A June Wedding

No, not mine. One of my dearest college friends was married in June, and the professional photographs just came back!

Tyler House!
