DIY Bath Bombs

I am trying to make it a goal this Christmas to not spend that much money…So that means bulk DIY gifts for everyone! For the ladies I decided to create bath bombs, which are actually really easy, and cost effective if you look at the price of a single bath bomb at a store, plus…

Crock Pot Green Chili Stew

I don’t know if it’s the cold weather, but I have been craving green chili recently. Canned soup is never satisfying, and only a few restaurants have it every now and then…So seems it’s time to make it myself. There are so many versions out there, that I couldn’t pick a recipe and decided to…

Vancouver

Going from Seattle to Vancouver was surprisingly easy. All you have to do is take a 4- hour train ride on the Cascade Amtrak, and you are dropped off just outside the city. From our AirBnB it was a 7 minute Lyft ride to King Street Station¬†(Love the Harry Potter sounding name). We had to…

Seattle Pt. 2

I was not ready to say goodbye to the spectacular mountain ranges, the wild llamas, and the vast empty space between the small cultural towns. I…

Iguazu Falls

All about Iguazu: Are you in South American wondering if you should go out of your way to see Iguazu Falls? The answer is yes! Take 3 days to go visit this spectacular natural park. In my opinion the falls were one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Granted I am only…
