Moving Forward

So normally I'm not an "air my laundry" kinda girl, but perhaps this may offer me some nice form of outlet....so as always take as you will! Plus it "airs" it and I don't have to talk about it anymore...hallelujahs!

If you don't know already I made the decision to move forward in my life journey alone, minus a hubbs. Not that I don't someday want a hubbs in my future life journey, it's just that I've made the executive decision that the hubbs I had didn't match exactly with my plans. Nuff said.

By far this hubb-less journey has been the hardest thing I have EVER had to do.....sucks hurting someone. However, I know the decision I have made was very thought out and wasn't made in haste.

In a time that support and love is needed the most in my life, I've been surprised by the reactions of the people around me with this choice. Some have been fabu and well...others....not so fabu. As is the way of life I suppose ... it will go on ... with or without some peeps. And you know what? I'm okay with it!

I'm excited to start this new chapter in my life ... not to say that some days haven't been simply brutal ... but today I'm excited for tomorrow. I'm healthy, happy...and going to Spain in 7 days ... wholly eekness!

Spa and Wine Night

Did you know that the Spa at Salish Lodge, Snoqualmie Falls, just did a major remodel? It is FABULOUS! On Thursday, June 2nd, they had an open house with free wine, free food and free spa services! Amazing right? I fell in love with their spa and think that its time to book a ladies weekend .... who's with me?

Kristen and I enjoyed all the above and afterwards headed upstairs to the "Attic" to enjoy happy hour! Heehee you know me....I can't resist a good happy hour! Part of the happy hour special is a little thing called "flights". They had four different options to choose from, but with each option comes with 3 different wines....region themed. Kristen and I each tried the Snoqualmie Flight, featured chardonnay, syrah, and merlot from a local Snoqualmie vineyards.


Soooo yummy....and the food...get me started...so foodtastic! Hold on one sec....I had to wipe away some of my drool just thinking about it.

Make sure to add the Salish Lodge and Spa...plus Attic...to your "must do" in Washington! I will definitely be going back...soon!

Well my hiatus is booked! Eeek! I ... will ... be ... traveling ... to ... Spain! That's right .... Spain! I'm am so very excited I can't even stand it! I figured I needed a mental break and there is no better time than right now, especially since I will have no life once nursing school starts. No better time than the present! I leave for Spain on June 30th, and will be there till July 17th.

Not only will I be traveling to Spain, but I will be visiting New York with my sister-in-law for 4 days ... then off to Arizona for some BFF time thru July 30th. So if you did the calendar math, that equals 30 days of traveling. I'm going to be exhausted but so happy at the same time.

I will be updating my blog on my travels so you can experience the beauty of my trip ... yay! Who will I be traveling with you ask? Me, myself, and I! :) Wanna know a perk of my trip? I get to see my friend Alberto while I'm in Spain! Yay me! I will have the best traveling companion on the weekends and during the week, while he is working, I will be either in Madrid or Barcelona exploring solo. I have never done a trip like this before, I don't even have a plan as to where I will be staying but I have some ideas and am looking forward to the spontaneous adventures that will be my life for 17 days!

I love that I have a friend over there that can take me around to the not so popular areas, I get to experience all the beauty that Spain offers! The temperatures will be above 100 degrees, so I've already succumb to the fact that I will be on a sangria and ice cream diet.....thank goodness for the heat so I can sweat those calories away! Lol!

Now ... time to buckle down on my Spanish lessons! Besos!
