Baby Blues and Hiking Boots

I need bigger hiking boots…and flip flops…maybe I’ll just go barefoot. My feet are swelling and right now shoes of any kind are the bane of my existence right now. Plus, fun fact a lot of women that have babies wind up moving up a shoe size- so, I might need to find bigger hikingContinue reading “Baby Blues and Hiking Boots”

Wandering Sisters!

This weekend wasn’t long enough. For a couple reasons. One, my sister, P.J. flew up for the weekend- I wish I could have kidnapped her and kept her up here for a few more days… or a month…or a year… Two, we had to pack a lot of stuff into mainly one day… I needContinue reading “Wandering Sisters!”

Best Laid Plans

Well… That didn’t go as planned. Also short boring post this week. The doctor appointment went well but we didn’t leave as early as we would have liked going to North Platte and then we didn’t leave North Platte until almost six and I had a dog that practically ran me over to get outsideContinue reading “Best Laid Plans”

Bored…I’m Bored!!!!

Short post this week, sorry about that. Yeah…after that nine-day work week my weekend consisted of me doing laundry (only productive thing I did) and eating Oreos on the couch… Oh, and walking the dog. I’m turning into a boring person. It’s just not the same as going somewhere for a hike. However, I didContinue reading “Bored…I’m Bored!!!!”

Baby Brain and Long Work Week

Sigh… This was the week I had my days off moved around. I’m working a nine day stretch and other than walking the dog I haven’t been doing much… I’m on day 7. So, I’m not sure if my brain is fuzzy because of baby brain or the long work week… But on the coolContinue reading “Baby Brain and Long Work Week”

Day Hikes and Baby Wipes

After the “big” trip to Wildcat Hills… if you can call two days a big trip. It was back to the normal day to day show; with a few highlights! The baby shower was a blast! The theme was on point for me- camping/outdoors stuff! I loved the snack table and there was some adorableContinue reading “Day Hikes and Baby Wipes”

A Jaunt at Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area

“Nebraska: Honestly, it’s not for everyone.” It’s a pun! Run! Wait…is it a pun? *shakes head in confusion, looks up puns, still unsure, continues to write anyways without finding out for sure if it is a pun* Honestly, Nebraska gets a bad rap. Before I came here for a job in 2014, I was oneContinue reading “A Jaunt at Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area”

Winter Bleeding into Spring, Happy Surprises, and the COVID-19 Quarantine

Well, there wasn’t much to write about as far as hiking goes. This winter I got sucked into my usual seasonal affective disorder (SAD) ‘meh’ phase. I find I love the snow (for the first few days) but I hate the wind and cold- then the snow becomes ridiculous. I’m short, the snow gets deepContinue reading “Winter Bleeding into Spring, Happy Surprises, and the COVID-19 Quarantine”

… Worn out…

Have you ever been exhausted? Not just tired, not just blah. But totally exhausted to the point that you just don’t want to get out of bed? That’s the point I hit about two months ago. I’m finally back to just being tired and I’m slowly working towards being excited about things again. I’ve returnedContinue reading “… Worn out…”

Pumpkins, Poems, and Pictures

Did it again… I slipped off the radar. In my defense, it has been a little busy in the grand scheme of things and I like sleep. Castiel And ILike Sleep INeed Sleep GIF from Castiel GIFs https://tenor.com/embed.js What I might do, since my well-laid plans seem to get shot to hell, is start writingContinue reading “Pumpkins, Poems, and Pictures”

Badlands: The Walk thru Mordor

Badlands- the name sparks curiosity. I’ve always been fascinated by the Badlands in South Dakota.  The area is in many ways like a desert but its home to the United States largest protected area of mixed grass prairie. It seems devoid of life. Yet it is home to 329 animal species and over 400 plantContinue reading “Badlands: The Walk thru Mordor”

Rocky Mountains and Gallbladder Pains

Winter has hit Nebraska; a major winter storm blew through Saturday night. Today I spent most of the day washing laundry, catching up on emails, and finally sitting down to work on my blog. After a week of fun in the sun and a week of Thanksgiving joy, I’m ready to get back to myContinue reading “Rocky Mountains and Gallbladder Pains”

I’m alive… I think…

In belated Halloween fashion I’m channeling Young Frankenstein of all things. Yes, I’m alive- just tired and ready for a vacation from my vacation- which won’t happen until sometime next year. The photo with this post is from the honeymoon cruise- I didn’t want to leave the window- it was perfect for reading. Read theContinue reading “I’m alive… I think…”

The Cowboy Trail

Hi all! It’s been another busy week here in Nebraska.  I had two fun days off; well except for the eye appointment I had. As I let all my Facebook friends know I had some trouble with my right eye. I apparently scratched it at some point. Did you know that the material in yourContinue reading “The Cowboy Trail”
