Our Mini Linky Party | Week 216


Good morning! 

Well, it may not feel like spring yet, but eventually, the warm weather will be back and I will no longer be freezing my butt off when I take Bowie out in the morning. 

This weekend, we will be doing some cleaning and catching up on work, and we may opt to take a quick ride in the car with our fur baby. We are slowly trying to adjust him to car rides so that we can work his way up to a full-blown road trip (and ensure that he is comfortable being in the car, and he knows how to behave). Other than that, I am just catching up on some emails and working through my to-do list for the weekend!  

Weekend in Portland Chinatown | A Full 2 Days Travel Itinerary

Are you ready to plan your next weekend getaway? Check out our Portland weekend travel itinerary!


With our busy schedules, Adam and I prefer to plan weekend travel throughout the year as opposed to taking an entire week off and only traveling and going on one trip per year. Additionally, we have made it our goal to explore more parts of the United States and see as much of this country as we can. 

While international travel is the end goal, while we are in our thirties, we are focusing on paying off our debts while also simultaneously taking time to enjoy seeing new places in-between the hustle of our demanding and oftentimes hectic work schedules. 

Last month, we traveled to Portland together for the first time for a weekend getaway. We wanted to enjoy traveling somewhere with slightly cooler weather than the kind we have this time of year in Phoenix, as well as spend our quick travel plans in a city that has a lot of character to make our weekend plans memorable (and Portland did not disappoint!) Between all of the delicious food, drinks, and quirky adventures we had exploring around Chinatown, we had a great weekend away from the office and spending time together on the road. 

After exploring all around Portland's Chinatown neighborhood, we have come up with what we believe to be the best weekend itinerary for exploring this region of Oregon! 

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 215


Happy Saturday! 

Even with a week filled with sleep deprivation, we are both still happy to have our little fur baby, Bowie, in our life. Crate training has proven difficult, but it seems like we are finally making some major progress. Being a dog mom is so hard, but it is so worth it! He is such a sweetie and a complete cuddle bug, and we will be spending the weekend at home with him.


Winter Getaway in Northwoods Wisconsin Guide

Take advantage of the winter season by making the winter landscape your outdoor playground in the Northwoods of Wisconsin! Keep reading to see our Northwoods Wisconsin winter travel guide.


While hibernation does sound appealing, this year, I decided to take advantage of the snow and all of the fun that comes with the winter season. With nearly a dozen recreational activities to enjoy this winter, it is no surprise that the beauty of the Northwoods of Wisconsin is the perfect place to spend your winter getaway! 

Bordering Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the Northwoods of Wisconsin encompasses over 3,200 lakes, rivers, and streams. It is undeniable that this part of the country is an ideal place to visit for all outdoor enthusiasts, and that it is particularly enjoyable for those who prefer winter recreation. 

Aware of its popularity during the winter months, many of the businesses, hotels, restaurants, and parks remain open to visitors and locals alike throughout even the coldest days of the year in the Northwoods. In fact, when I visited the Northwoods earlier this month, it was during the Polar Vortex of 2019 (and the coldest temperature we experienced outdoors was -37° Fahrenheit). 

Whether you enjoy the most active winter sports, or simply enjoying exploring the woods and the beauty of the snowy landscape, the Northwoods of Wisconsin offers a winter playground everyone can enjoy! Below, you will find our winter travel guide to the Northwoods, including where to eat and drink, what to do, where to shop, and where to stay (along with links to their businesses on Yelp, so you can bookmark all of these places for your next Wisconsin winter getaway).
