moving

Yep! We’re at this whole moving across the world thing again. I know, I know, I said we were staying in the States until AT LEAST Christmas, and we did just buy a house. But things changed…and boy, did they change fast. All of our previous experiences with applying for visas have been incredibly long and drawn out processes. However, our visas this time were processed in just ONE DAY. It was nuts. We literally just booked our flights last… Read more »

Doc's Harley-Davidson

Doc’s Harley-Davidson in Bonduel, Wisconsin is far beyond just a motorcycle dealership. Here you’ll find a zoo, complete with kangaroos and alligators, a motorcycle museum, restaurant and bar…plus, Doc’s creations adorn the property. See one below. (Doc is the owner.) I live fairly close to Doc’s Harley-Davidson but only recently made the drive over to it for a family birthday party. I didn’t realize just what an assortment of things there are to see and experience at Doc’s! I hadn’t… Read more »

THE FASHIONISTA’S GUIDE TO DALLAS

Guest Post By Melody Smith When someone thinks of fashion off the top of their head they would probably mention Paris, London or Milan as the cities to go to if you are a fashionista. For the US, many would say that it has to be New York. But there are many places in the USA that can cater to a fashionista. One such place is Dallas. It is one of the most popular cities in the state and is… Read more »

This dress made an appearance on the blog a few months ago as a beach look (click… Read more »

favorite online stores

I avoid going to stores at all costs. I much prefer shopping at online stores from the comfort of my couch with a cup of coffee and my laptop. I like to take my time thinking about my purchase and read reviews on items. And I will even let items sit in my cart for days at a time, just to make sure I really want it, and it’s not an impulse buy. But, like everyone, I have my favorite… Read more »

New house

Well, we’re going to have to do some updates to the blog description…because we can no longer call ourselves “nomads.” My husband and I just bought our first house! That feels really weird to say, haha. Now, this doesn’t mean we’ll stop traveling by any means. It just means we’ll actually have somewhere to come home to now. For today’s post, I’m going to do a little tour of the house via photos! Maybe once we get more situated (and… Read more »

parasailing Myrtle Beach

Parasailing is one thing I never thought I would talk myself into. This is mainly because I didn’t know what exactly it all entailed other than it combined two of my big fears – heights and the potential to drown, haha. (I’m not a very strong swimmer, so water makes me a bit nervous.) Hopefully, this post will help clear up what to expect when you go parasailing for the first time and convince you to actually do it! I’m… Read more »

Aquarium Myrtle Beach

Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach is a family-friendly experience, that includes some fun interactive opportunities! I’ve been to quite a few aquariums in my life now and thought for this post, I could offer some insight into how this aquarium stacks up to others in the country (& world) and if it’s worth the time/money.

Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth

*You can enter to win a free whitening kit at the end of this post! “You have such a beautiful smile!” That is the best compliment you can receive, in my opinion. When I was growing up, my smile wasn’t exactly “beautiful” by conventional standards. I had big front teeth, which I hadn’t exactly grown into. Plus, my teeth were crooked and rather discolored. It was one of those things that I would get made fun for of by the… Read more »

It was actually pretty chilly, haha. Gotta love the ever-changing weather in Wisconsin! This dress is from a new-to-me… Read more »

how to spend 10 days in Argentina

I was fortunate enough to have a year to spend exploring Argentina. However, for most people coming to visit this beautiful country, that simply isn’t possible.

So, this itinerary will help you plan your Argentine adventure and see as much as you possibly can in your 10 days! (And I’ll also share some suggestions if you have more or less time!)… Read more »
