Bright and early tomorrow morning, I will be en route cross-country to the beautiful state of Washington for the long weekend! Check out some of the activities we have planned:
Three nights of Dave Matthews Band at one of the best venues in the world.
Pike Place Market
The Space Needle
Leavenworth, a Bavarian style village
Wineries of Yakima Valley
(guess who will be tailgating with wine?!)
Hope everyone enjoys their long Labor Day weekend! See you in September!
For those of you who follow me on Twitter (if not, you should! – @LindsayInNYC), you may have seen my weekend series of pictures…
It started with the “Winston Under a Bench” series – my personal favorite 😉
Waiting in Woods Hole for the ferry. Mind you, all these photos were taken upside down so he was basically under the bench below my butt.
Sitting outside on the top deck of the ferry. If you ever plan on owning a pug, they do NOT do well in the heat! I think they will adapt to it over time but since Winston is primarily inside, he has not. To be fair, it was a steamy 90+ degrees out that day.
This is the same picture as above but the view I had when I turned around and looked over the seat back. The guy sitting behind us enjoyed it.
Outside eating breakfast. Creeper.
This was the view I had below me – basically between my legs.
Heading back on the ferry. We decided to sit inside this time. For his sake.
Since Winston previously decided to pee on our bed (and the feather bed on top of it) more than once, he’s not allowed on it anymore. We make an exception when we’re travelling though.
Passed out in a Wee ball.
Chillin like a villain.
Life is rough
And there you have it – how Winston spent his time on Martha’s Vineyard (plus a few too many treats from Good Dog Goods!).
Link up with Rachel at Just Peachy!
Since going to Puerto Rico for Thanksgiving, we haven’t really had a vacation. Yes we went to TN for a long weekend but I’m talking relaxing, beach-y vacation. I have a bunch of trips coming up in the second half of the year and I cannot wait. The first is in July and will consist of a lot of this:
2. Iced Coffee. Preferably coconut flavored. So good.
For the longest time (high school to last summer), I haven’t been able to eat most fresh fruits without my lips and mouth getting itchy and swollen. Finally, last summer I saw a new allergist and got a patch test done which revealed a million and one allergies (no joke, I’m on 3 drugs for it!). Turns out, all of my outdoor allergies cause a reaction with fruits – it’s called oral allergy syndrome
. Weird but interesting. Now, a little Zyrtec in the morning (every morning, every day) and fresh fruit is my best friend! So I’m making up for lost time and eating a TON of fruit. We’re just nearing fruit season and I’m so excited for all sorts of berries!
4. Sun & Sand (okay, pool)
My current apartment building has a pool which I’m going to miss terribly next year when we move. So this summer I will be taking FULL advantage of it, every possible weekend!
Right now, there are only 2 on tap for this summer, but I’m just as excited!
Can’t wait to see these fine men:
And this man:
What are YOUR best things about summer?
Today has been a bit of a rough, headachy day. My paralegal/secretary and I butted heads significantly this morning and it just set the tone for the day (those of you on Twitter know the story… PS – Follow me! @LindsayInNYC). I kept my door shut for most of the day but now I’m looking forward. The day is almost over, the week is half over and I have SO much to look forward to in these upcoming months. A little sneak peek of my 2012 vacations?
Any guesses where I’ll be headed this year?
