The happiest of hours

Do you guys know that Seasons has an amazing happy hour menu? It's true. We don't really do happy hours much. In fact we're usually lucky if we eat before eight. But a couple weeks ago we decided to grab a late lunch and just happened-upon Seasons' daily 3-6 happy hour. We split Kobe sliders, sweet potato fries and we each got a beer (only $2 each!) and it only cost $14. No joke. Cheapest date ever. Last Saturday I…

Take a Hike | Marie Creek

It's been too long! So sorry. We've had a lot of family stuff going on, a new baby niece, grandmas visiting, birthdays galore. I'm sure you know the drill. But the good news is I have lots to talk about, including some really awesome hikes. I'm going out of order here but that's alright. On Easter we decided to head up to Marie Creek with our friends Kristin and Blake for a pre-feast hike. The trail is about 1 miles…

I think the best way to go about it though is to make realistic goals. Instead of…

They may be bald…

Whoever said being bald isn't beautiful? One of my favorite traditions is to go eagle watching with my dad. We're so lucky to have these guys migrating through Coeur d'Alene every year.

Each year my dad, my mom, my husband and I load up our cameras and binoculars and…

Road Trippin’ – Seattle Marathon

 Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! We decided to do something a little different this year and I'm hoping to make it a new tradition. Instead of joining the hoards of people at Black Friday sales and getting trampled over a shirt, we hopped in the car with one of my besties and my brother-in-law and drove to Seattle for the Seattle Marathon. I successfully completed my first half marathon at 2:13! I know it's not great, but it's…
