My followers keep asking me where I have been! I know, I am slacking on keeping up with the blog. But I’ve been busy. With my wedding, volunteering, and working my butt off to pay for the wedding! You know…unimportant stuff like that.
I will start by catching up with the fall. We had a great season of mountain biking. I got a new Giant Trance Advanced 27.5, which I love! We made a couple trips up to Copper Harbor with friends and of course took advantage of the incredible trails in our hometown, Marquette. We had some good days of fishing and lounging on the beach. Although the temperature of Lake Superior was extremely cold all summer and fall. Maybe the icebergs that lasted into June has something to do with that…
At my annual summer work party, Nic and I killed the costume competition. The regulars at the prestigious golf course gave us some funny looks.
The reason that I have not been posting as often, isn’t because I don’t have things to share. In fact, it has been the opposite. I have so much going on! 2014 is turning out to be one of those whirlwind years. Continue reading →
We made it to Maine! The main destination of our road trip was Maine. We kept hearing about how amazing it was from friends and Nic really wanted a fresh lobster. 😉 It was a beautiful state; reminded us a lot of the Upper Peninsula.
It was a long and rainy drive from New Jersey to Northern Vermont. We didn’t take into account that we left on Friday afternoon on Memorial Day weekend, and the traffic in the East is horrible! What was expected to be a 6 hour drive, became almost 11. First, we had a hard time adjusting to the toll booths on the turnpikes. There are express card lanes and there are cash-only lanes. Of course we were on the far left lane, when the cash lane was on the far right. Just try merging through 8 lanes of heavy traffic to get far right! People were hitting our cars with their mirrors, our bikes were getting bumped on the back of the car, and we had a few panic attacks. Luckily Nic was driving through all of this while I navigated. Once we got into Connecticut, traffic came to a halt. It was bumper to bumper as far as the eye could see….for over 2 hours. I literally could have walked faster than the rate we were moving on the highway. I promise that I will never complain about lunch hour traffic in Marquette again! Continue reading →
Nic and I took a little weekend getaway to Canada. My parents kindly met us in Mackinaw City to take the dogs off our hands. We enjoy taking the dogs with us on trips, but we were bringing paddleboards and I didn’t want to leave them in the car. The weather on the drive was amazing. We drove through black storm clouds and ended up with some great rainbows. We arrived in Sault Ste. Marie, ON around 7 pm and did our grocery shopping. Is it just me, or does food and beer in Canada seem much more expensive?
