• Voodoo Donuts, worth the hype?

    After an episode on The Travel Channel some years ago, I was instantly drawn to the crazy flavors and variety that Voodoo Donut was selling. While not living on the west coast or even in the middle of the United States, the chances of me trying one was pretty slim, that is until a week ago. Making plans to see my best friend out in Denver, Colorado involved visiting the Red Rocks, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Voodoo Donuts. I don’t typically crave donuts but this was something that I NEEDED to try. I settled on two flavors: cocoa puffs and oreo peanut butter. The cereal was a tad stale…

  • 7 things to do this weekend {October}

    I can’t believe this weekend is the beginning of October–how quickly is this school year is going by?! So anyways, with October approaching, some of my favorite fall activities can finally be done! This weekend I’m not doing a whole lot; my second job starts this weekend (tutoring) and then it will probably be spent doing more homework. So as you can see, nothing too exciting going on here. However if I had some free time, I would love to be doing something on this list! Research a DIY Halloween costume Head to the Big E (if you’re from New England) if you’re not, I suggest a similar fair closer…

  • down on the farm

    A little over a month ago I headed to Illinois for my best friends wedding (I was also in the wedding). So needless to say it had been over two years in the making and it turned out to be a fantastic day! The boyfriend and I flew out to Chicago a few days before the actual wedding, hoping to spend some time in Chicago. We ended up getting 1/2 a day there, but that’s okay, we totally plan on going back sometime soon! Our time in Chicago was pretty fun, even though we didn’t have much time. So what did we do? After checking in at The W Hotel,…

  • T-11 days…

    In 11 days I will be Chicago bound!! Now before I get ahead of myself, I am not staying in Chicago very long. The reason for my trip to Illinois is for my best friends wedding I have been talking about for over a year now. I am in the wedding, so things were particulary busy on my end earlier this year. The other exciting part is, my boyfriend and I, will get to spend just about 1 full day in Chicago and I can’t wait! The wedding is located about 2.5 hours south, I think? Regardless, it’s kinda sorta in the middle of nowhere and that’s where we will…

  • Sail away on the Block Island Ferry

    I know that I’ve mentioned how crazy busy I have been but I wanted to share with you the trip I took over Memorial Day weekend. Many of you know I  am from Rhode Island and we are known for our beaches. There is a great little island called Block Island that you need to take a ferry to get too–I have been many times as a kid but I hadn’t been back in a few years. Chris (boyfriend) had never been before and when another couple asked us if we wanted to go, of course we said yes! My boyfriend has a love/hate relationship with Rhode Island, most likely…
