29 things to do in my 29th year of life

Monday, April 24, 2017

i turned 29 last month.  29.  i don't really feel much older but i know i am, you know what i mean?  like i keep finding myself thinking about how i can be more of an "adult" and make decisions that will benefit me in the long run.  i'm even instinctively going to bed earlier .... what the heck?  does your body just know that at a certain age it's time to start acting old?  its weird.  part of me likes it and part of me wishes i was still 22 and running around town like there would never be any consequences to acting that way.  ahhhh, the good ol days.  anyways, 29 is off to a good start and i'm actually, secretly, a little excited to be one year closer to 30.  because, you know, being 29 means i'm one year closer to being a responsible adult, and that just comes naturally at 30, right? (please say yes!)  ha!

to celebrate 29, i've put together a list of 29 things i want to do during my 29th year of life.  i'll try to keep the list updated and cross things off as i do them, and of course share some stories along the way!

explore // palomar mountain, san diego

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

for new years eve this year, my boyfriend and i headed up to palomar mountain to ring in the new years with friends and family.  dylan spent the first years of his life living on the mountain and it was so fun to explore it with him.  i had never been to palomar mountain before, but it's safe to say i fell in love.  we stayed at bailey's resort, a family owned resort with plenty of cabins and guest houses.  it was old, quaint and had breathtaking views.  the weather was wet and gloomy, not exactly ideal for hiking and exploring, but we managed to walk around the resort and check out some of the cabins and endless beauty.  the best part?  it snowed right before midnight!  what a great way to celebrate a new year!!

explore // san diego zoo

Thursday, July 21, 2016

last sunday me and 6 of my closest friends hit the zoo for a day of fun.  it's been about 6 years since i've been to the sd zoo so it's safe to say i was overly excited to spend a day there.  not to mention, they serve beer! what could be better than an ice cold beer on a hot day while you look at super cute animals?  we had such a fun time and i can't wait to go again!  

here are some of my favorite pictures from the day.  it's so crazy to me that these animals are so big and majestic.  my favorites were definitely the elephants and meerkats - opposites, no less!  and did you know, a group of meerkats is called a mob?  might have been my favorite factoid from the day!
