It has been a crazy week and I have had no time to write my blog posts about our vacay!!! We official moved into our new apartment and we are SO happy. I will post pics as soon as everything is set up : )
I love going on vacation because it’s an excuse to get some cute attire… right?! This outfit was one of my favorites during our trip. I felt so fancy in my Miss It Girl heels and Boutique Amore zip jacket! I don’t wear all black very often so I loved having the gold zipper to add some detail.
I have been wanting to visit Costa Rica for a few years now, especially since my cousin has lived there for about 10 years. My husband had a few days off for thanksgiving so we decided to pack up and head to paradise. Our trip was 10 days long and we were able to see so many incredible places.
If you decided to visit and want to explore the country ( go sight seeing) I would recommend at least a week for your stay. If you want to just lay on the beach or visit a resort a few days would be perfect. My favorite part about Costa Rica was the fruit ….. so fresh and sweet. I’ll share a little bit about those in my next posts with some smoothie ideas.
This hotel we stayed at was called Villas Lirio and it was divine. You literally feel like you are in the Jungle and away from civilization. We were able to hear all sorts of animals and birds as we walked around and explored. Sadly we only stayed there for one night… but it was a resonable price and an awesome environment. The best part of this hotel was the location! It is so close to the beach and great places to eat.
In my next blog post about Costa Rica, I will talk about the beach/national park we visited in Jaco and where we went to eat. Make sure to keep and eye out for it!!! Cant wait to share details and itenary from our trip.
Hello Lovies, Hoping your week was as joyful as mine 🙂 Just wanted to clue you in on some awesome fall deals that I found and give you an update on our next vacation. SO I bought these velvet burgundy jeans at Costco this week and I am IN LOVE. They were only $20 and unbelievably soft!!! I want a pair in every color. Also my booties are only $32 — they are my favorite pair of shoes right now and go with everything.
Fall is coming to an end and I am so sad! I can’t believe snow will be arriving soon…. I loved being able to walk around yesterday and look at all the beautiful trees changing colors and actually enjoy what Fall feels like. Growing up in Florida, the only season you have is summer and semi-summer. I found this neat wall in Provo and HAD to stop and snap some pics.
Lately I have been preparing and researching for my upcoming trip to Cost Rica and could not be more excited. I can’t wait to try all the yummy places to eat, beaches to lay on, and fun adventures to explore. The only thing I am a little worried about is that it is rainy season — well it technically ends mid November, so we are crossing our fingers it will be over by the time we arrive. We will be flying into San Jose, and staying with my second cousin. I am tempted to take a surfing lesson while I am there!! I don’t have the best balance but I think it would be so fun. I am so happy that right as it turns cold here we will be headed to the beach. If any of you have recommendations LET ME KNOW:) ?
Thanks for reading and I’m serious about those jeans … they are amazing!!!
I am the type of person that loves bright and crazy workout clothes. It is fun for me and makes me more excited to workout! I know that I get re-motivated when I get new workout clothes — do you?! I have been loving this Nike shoes as well, they are super comfy and were great for my hike this morning.
Michael found out that he starts his new job at Circus Trix on the 17th, so we decided to make the best of these few days left of being free and unemployed 20 year olds. We decided to go on a hike up the canyon called Deuel Creek in Centerville, Utah. It was absolutely breathtaking!!! We packed food and hiked up to this neat rope swing where we then sat, ate,swung, and enjoyed listening to the creek.
Funny story: After we finished our sandwiches Michael got out the delicious cookies we had bought (1 for each of us) and Michael devoured his pretty quickly … well mine was sitting on top of the bag and I was deleting pictures on my camera– not paying attention. Well this man and his dog were passing by and can you guess what happens next? Yep that thief of a dog stole my cookie!!! 😦 I was so excited to eat the cookie because I went to a spin class this morning,then went on this hike and I felt like I deserved a treat. Anyway, we both busted out laughing and talked about how excited that dog must have been to snag a free treat on his hike.
Today has been a great day and I love being reminding of how beautiful and relaxing it is to be in nature and away from the craziness in the world. Get up — Get out— and Go explore:) You will be happy you did, I promise!!
