Addicted to Social Media?

This article really speaks to me. It outlines 25 signs indicating you need a vacation from social media. I am guilty of the following:

  • You enter a new place or social situation and you immediately judge whether it’s Instagram-worthy.
  • You speak in hashtags. For example, “I totally just fell down the stairs. Hashtag —fail,” or “I ate too many donuts today. Hashtag—first world problems.”
  • You’re starting to resent the frequency with which you type the phrases, “check out,” “click here,” and “for more details.”
  • You’re frustrated when you see low engagement on your most important personal status updates.
  • When you go out to eat, your food is always cold because you’ve just Instagrammed it into oblivion.
  • You come up with ideas for posts while hanging out with your friends. You immediately start texting yourself future post ideas.
  • You’ve used “Ermahgerd!” when speaking with your parents.

I think we’re all in the same boat right? #bloggerproblems

I’m Back

I went to Toronto without my camera. Shame on me. But I did Instagram some shit, namely photos of the CN Tower, Niagara Falls, and our clubbing escapades. Did you know that the legal drinking age in Canada is 19? I think my clubbing days in Canada are over you guys.

I also spent quality time with my family and developed a case of severe baby fever, which I need to get rid of immediately as I’m traveling to the champagne region of France in a few months and plan on drinking excessively. Also, I missed the Husband a ridiculous amount (he didn’t come with me) and I determined that spending a few days apart is good for romance.

I’m going to spend the remainder of the week not eating and doing some form of extreme exercise. Happy Hump Day!

Palm Springs Was Good to Me

Twas an exceptionally good time in the desert. We ate a lot, drank a hell of a lot and even had a plank-off where I achieved my longest time in plank position (2 minutes and 40 seconds to be exact).  Apparently, I’m more athletic with some booze in my system!

Back to real life now.

Going to the Desert

A salt water pool and lavender mojitos are awaiting our arrival in Palm Springs. Tomorrow I’ll announce the winner of the Made by Maru giveaway. Wednesday, I will be drinking in the sun. That means I’ll see you guys on Thursday. Don’t hate!

I Went to New Orleans

I’m back from Mardi Gras in New Orleans grope-free and no longer a port-a-potty virgin. It had to happen, you guys, and I just went with the flow. Mardi Gras is pretty crazy and I still can’t get over how into parades people are. But it definitely is a sight to see and I can check it off my bucket list.

I have to say the residents of Louisiana epitomize southern hospitality. The friends we stayed with went out of their way to make us feel welcome and we’re so thankful to them for providing me and The Husband with shelter, food and entertainment for five days.

Highlights of our trip included a daytime stroll in the French Quarter (we decided on purpose not to do Bourbon Street in the dark), the best Hurricane at the oldest bar in the city, and catching beads from random strangers on balconies.

We were chastised for all our sinning so we went to church to repent.

One day we sought shelter at a nearby plantation during a torrential downpour.

There was a lot of parade watching going on. I almost brought a mini horse home with me.

And thank God for use of a private port-a-potty provided by some sweet friends.

I also tried extremely hard to catch beads from Will Ferrell at the Bacchus Parade. Nothing.

I didn’t get to meet Elizabeth as it is nearly impossible to get around during Mardi Gras 😦 But she promises to come to San Diego!

And that’s my trip in 200 words or less, which I know is about how long I have your attention for. Thanks to all of you who left me tips about Mardi Gras. Especially the one about the shenis.

Mardi Gras

I’m going to Mardi Gras you guys. Like the real one in New Orleans. I know, I can’t believe it either. I’m a little scerred of all the groping I’m told will ensue, but the Husband is 6’6” so he’s got my back. I also have anxiety about the bathroom issue as I have a strict no porta potty policy and I tend to drink too much. Any tips/tricks?

I’ll be back with a recap on Wednesday unless I’m really tired and I need an extra day to recover. You understand right?

I’m back my loyal readers and I must say the cold wasn’t as bad as I anticipated. There’s something so cozy about heated homes and malls. I hate to disappoint, but I spent my vacation vacationing rather taking pictures so I have very little to show from my trip. I did manage to document our weekend in Niagara Falls.

I still can’t believe this shit is real. I may or may not have asked if it was man made.

My angel of a cousin also left her babies overnight with family so we could do a lot of drinking and sitting by the fireplace and dancing in the middle of the street to our own effed up version of Rhianna songs. I miss her so much it hurts.

I’m already looking forward to my next trip there.

Snow Vacation

I just wanted to let you all know that while you’re working and stuff, I’m taking a post holiday vacation to Toronto to visit family. No, I wasn’t drunk when I agreed to go to Canada in January.

I lined up a few posts to keep you satiated in my absence. Off to sub-zero temps!
