Terrifying Situation

What was the most terrifying situation you have ever been in? 

The most terrifying situation I have ever been through is when my dad was running in the Boston Marathon. It was the year they had the terrorist attacks. My dad's tracker dude stopped running on the map online and I got a horrible feeling in my stomach. 

And then my brother texted asking me if I heard from my parents and then told me to turn on the news. My heart dropped in my chest. And then all the texts and messages came through... 

That was by far the worst hour of my life. Wondering where my dad was, wondering if he was okay, wondering if my mom was okay... So many questions going through my mind.

Favorite Dish

What is your favorite dish to cook for your friends?

I think my favorite is my white chicken chili crockpot recipe. I put it in the crockpot and it cooks for 8-10 hours and we are good. And it is so good. I just cook up some corn bread and then dinner is done!

Quick and Easy

Next Vacation

My next big vacation, I would love it to be in Louisiana. My parents and I usually rotate what years we travel. We went last year so they were suppose to come this year... however... COVID happened and that is not happening this year. My mom is considered high risk, so I completely get it.

We will probably not see them until 2021, but I would love to go see them.

Because that is not realistic this year... I would like to take a few day trips with the girls. Our first day trip will be to do the Twilight Tour in Forks, WA. We can do that, while social distancing. I made the list of our route already...

We will get up around 6 am and head out with food in tow. We will stop at the places below in order:
- Ruby Beach - I have never been here and it is so close to La Push so we will hit this up first in the morning to be able to get out and enjoy our time at a new place.
- Forks - we will hit up all the locations for the Twilight Tour.
- La Push - if this is open. If not, we will skip this time around. We plan to go down the road and rent a cabin with the girls.
- Sol Duc Falls - we will see about this as well. It is so beautiful, but we will play this one by how the girls are feeling...
- Lake Crescent
- Port Angeles
- Hit up anywhere else we can find to have fun...

We are watching the Twilight movies now to prepare for our girls trip and I can not wait. We are doing this in less than a week and we can't wait... Woo hoo!

Happy Birthday Mackenzie....

Today I decided to take the day off and hang out with my friend Amanda and her 2 year old Mackenzie. She turns 2 today. My youngest kiddo and I went to McDonald's for breakfast and headed over to hang out all day long.

What a fun day we had. We enjoyed time together. Relaxing and just having a day off is great!

What is the most beautiful thing you have ever seen in nature?

Definitely my trip to La Push, Washington.

On this trip everything was just so breath taking. The drive was just so beautiful. You are driving through the Olympic National Park. And then you stop at little places like, Port Angeles that just has amazing vies. On the way there, we also stopped at Sol Duc Falls and we hiked through the park to get to the falls. It was so amazing.

Once we got to La Push, we stayed in a cabin on first beach. And if that wasn't incredible itself, we took time to hike through the forest to get to Second Beach. The hike wasn't so bad. Once we got there, we had to take the man made stairs all the way to the beach. Hiking those stairs on the way back was pretty rough. But it was WELL worth it. We also went to Rialto Beach while we were down there.

The whole trip was AMAZING. I want to take our girls to do this exact trip one day soon. I want them to be able to see the amazing beauty of nature. So breath taking!
