The Adventures of Stinky Sweet:

Sometimes stinky. Sometimes sweet. But it's our life - and it is always good.

Chad and I don't get to travel that often - mostly because we have to save both our dollars and our vacation days for so long to be able to go anywhere - so I am crazy excited for our upcoming trip to Oregon and Washington state. We are about a week out and have finally settled into some plans that involve things like Mt. Rainer, snow tubing, the motherland REI store, one of the largest locally owned bookstores in the US, whale watching, Pike's Place, and some visiting with family and friends. It is going to be an epic vacation - and the only one we get this year - so we shall make the most of it.

We will spend 2 and a half days with Megan in Portland and the surrounding area. Chad has some historical locations on his list of things to see and we have a few local breweries on our list to tour and sample (of course!). We hope to get to Rainer or up the Columbia River gorge to see some fun stuff too. We will head to Seattle via Amtrak (which I am equally excited about...!!) and stay with my best friend's little brother on a ferry-access-only island. We will be footloose tourists for a few days in Seattle where a whale watching tour is basically the only thing we have firmly decided on so far. I love to travel with my guy and promised he would hold my hand if we go up in the Space Needle so I think my dislike-of-heights-in-my-"old-age" can handle it just to say I've done it.

Marking two more states off my see all 50 bucket list!
