How to Survive Your First Tropical Storm

Just kidding. But actually. In my first week in the city, we have already had a tropical storm with a flash flood warning! HOW BAD ASS IS THAT. I know. It’s awesome. I took this screenshot at work last Wednesday (or at least, I’m pretty sure it was Wednesday…), while we were ...

NYC Insta-Rambles Week 1

My first week in NYC has come and gone, but not without adventures! This city is challenging in so many ways, but in the best ways. Not only have I gone almost a week without candy (the horror!), but it’s definitely been a week since I last had an appointment with Dr. Pepper (although, ...

Battle Royale: Northwest vs. Northeast, and Wanderlust in the City

It didn’t take much time after landing at JFK Airport to realize that I was no longer in the Apple Capitol of the World (let alone Stumptown), but in the Big Apple.  From the buildings to the weather, from the people to the food, from the most noticeable and obvious differences ...

Let’s hear it for New York!

“Empire State of Mind” is consistently playing in my head – almost as if on loop – no matter if I’m speed walking down Madison towards work, or casually sauntering down Broadway home, or even struggling up 8th with my bag and a garment bag. When I occasionally belt ...

#PrayforOklahoma

The nation watched in devastation yesterday as Tornado Allie hit Moore, OK, and left elementary schools in its wake of destruction. Even if you aren’t from the midwest, you can help all those affected by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to give $10 to disaster relief efforts, or you can donate ...

101 in 1001

For a while, I’ve been wanting to create a bucket list for my trip to NYC. But recently, I stumbled onto Design Darling, a lifestyle blog, where the blogger, Mackenzie, is attempting to do 101 things in 1001 days. I’m a starter. As long as I’ve known myself (which is about 21 ...

Insta-Rambles

Something I’ve seen done a TON on other blogs is a weekly blog post featuring the blogger’s most recent Instagram photos. Tracking your life week by week? So smart! I can barely remember what I had for breakfast, let alone what I did earlier this week. So, for my first riveting ...

Preferring basketball over barbies, travel over tutus, and almost any chatter that could somehow relate back to Harry Potter, Julia is always game for a beer and an impromptu booking of a ticket to a game, country, or even the latest Fast and Furious movie. Here, find random thoughts, tidbits about trips, and occasionally Seattle Seahawks propaganda.
