It's a... ROAD TRIP!

I meant to post this DAYS ago, but life got too busy and whatnot.  Better late than never, right?

Well, it's almost time to head out for our road trip.  Yay!  I'm pretty excited.  You want to know why?

(1) We're going to Zion National Park.  Nick's favorite place and I'm pretty excited to go see why he loves it so much.


(2) The weather forecast looks amazing for the week (technically 3 1/2 days, but whatever).

I think this means that I'll get to frolic around in red dirt with my shorts and Tevas.  WHAT?! 
Ah, yes.  It's not Hawaii, but I'd take warm weather over overcast mediocre weather right about now.

Our trip is going to call for some serious driving though.  12 hours the first day, 7 hours the second day.  Vice versa on the way back.  You can probably guess-timate an extra couple of hours for my pregnant body to pee.

This also means that we'll have to make some caffeine stops. 

Probably stop for some...
Orange Mocha Frappuccinos!
Our first day we're stopping in southern Idaho, second day will be in Zion.  Camp for a few days and then it's on the road again to stop in Eastern Oregon and maybe a pit stop on the second day to visit the in-laws.  Surprise!

I'm hoping it's going to be really fun.  We're camping, but we're taking all of our comfortable car camping gear instead of our lightweight backpacking gear.   We're also planning on hiking each day we're there and hanging out by the fire.  Mmm, can you taste the roasted marshmallows yet?

We also have a pretty fun car jam playlist we've been building.  Know what's on it?  Well, to name a few, Thrift Shop, Lonely Island, Punch Brothers, Flight of the Conchords, and some Justin Timberlake. That's just a few...

Anyways.  You won't see any blog posts next week and you probably won't hear from me.  Maybe on Instagram (thank you new iPhone!), but don't count on it too much. 

Have a great week everyone!  See you in April!
