Our Mini Linky Party | Week 193

Good morning!

Last week, we had a chance to enjoy some time relaxing at home with a staycation before we ramped back up and did a little bit more traveling (and yes, we had game night...and yes, I kicked his butt at Scrabble). 

This weekend, my sister is getting married and we are so excited to be a part of her big day! After our quick trip out to our hometown area, I will be packing up my bags and headed on another trip (more details to come soon, or you can follow along on our Instagram Stories to get the real-time updates!) We are so thrilled to be on another press trip this month, and we're excited to share some great travel ideas with you in the coming weeks! 

In the meantime, we invite you to check out our apartment reveal if you have not seen it already, as well as an end-of-summer-inspired date night idea we shared last week on the blog. If you're a blogger like we are, be sure to add your links below so we can check out your latest recipes and tutorials and we encourage you to check out at least 1 or 2 other bloggers from the link party and go support their blogs and network with them.

4 Tips for Staying Keto-Friendly While Traveling

This post is sponsored by Pearls® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

Although it has not been a full year since Adam and I started on a lower carb diet and began adapting to a more ketogenic diet, we have developed some great habits when it comes to snacking, drinking water, controlling our portions, and just being more mindful of listening to our bodies. 

Since we started following the ketogenic diet as a way to better what we eat and how we eat, we began learning just how many food items we encountered on a daily basis that were not ideal when it comes to keeping meals low in carbohydrates. 

Traveling, especially, opened our eyes when it comes to being aware of what we put into our bodies and reading up on nutritional facts before mindlessly snacking on anything we could get our hands on at the airport. In the past, we struggled with eating healthy while on the go and traveling. Now that we have a better sense of what we can do to set ourselves up for success, today we are sharing four helpful travel tips for those who are on a ketogenic or lower carb diet (as well as our new, favorite low carb on-the-go travel snack!)

Our Weekend at Park MGM Las Vegas

Over Labor Day weekend, Adam and I went out to Las Vegas for a quick getaway. Today, we're sharing the details from our stay at Park MGM Las Vegas (upon talking to them after we booked our reservation, they upgraded our suite and gave us with a dining credit in exchange for sharing our trip on the blog!) 

Earlier this summer, when Adam and I saw an advertisement on Facebook for bus tickets from Phoenix to Las Vegas for under $5.00, we started planning our affordable-but-luxurious weekend trip to Las Vegas.

We knew we wanted to keep our travel budget under a few hundred dollars but we also wanted to stay in one of the larger hotels on the strip, so we began investigating which hotels would best suit our needs for our long weekend travel plans. Some of the larger and more well-known hotels on the strip were immediately out of the picture since they can cost hundreds and hundreds of dollars per night on a weekend, but one hotel that we did find that had a reasonable overnight fee was Park MGM. 

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 192

Happy Saturday!

We plan on spending this weekend catching up on household chores, as well as gearing up for being out of the office again this week. 

If you did not get a chance to watch our Instagram Stories, then you would not already know that we spend last week enjoying a quick trip out to Las Vegas followed by a brief staycation at home here in Phoenix. We have a few to-do items on our list for this weekend that need to be finished before we head back out of town, but this time, we are headed east and going to our hometown for my sister's wedding!
