Behind the scenes of my D.C. adventures

Our adventures in D.C. Sharing my favorite locations and style.

This weekend was one for the books and also enjoyable with our spring weather finally showing up. I have been to D.C. several times, but hadn’t never seen the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. It was a neat museum with lots of cool sites, including the hope diamond. One of my favorite sites to see there. Also, got my picture with my husband in front of the famous T-Rex from Night at the Museum.

After spending a couple of hours in the museum, we went to the national mall where you can see the national monument on one side and the capitol building on the other side. It is so neat to see both of those and reflect on our country. I am so thankful to live in such a great and beautiful country.

Our D.C. adventure ended at a local restaurant called the Protein Bar which had lots of healthy food and delicious smoothies. I definitely recommend this place for a quick bite to eat if you are trying to eat healthier.

Friday evening we enjoyed some ice cream and for me that meant non dairy Ben and Jerry’s ice cream (my new favorite is the peanut butter half baked) and watched The Greatest Showman (The Greatest Showman). One of my new favorite movies!  I love the singing and dancing in it and being a musical theatre fan makes it the perfect movie! I definitely recommend watching it, even if you aren’t into musicals. My husband loved it and is not a big musical fan.

Our weekend ended with some shopping at the outlets. I loved being able to shop and try on so many different styles. My favorite outlet stores are Loft, American Eagle, and JCrew. I posted links for all of my clothes in the pictures, including my fun gingham flats I wore in D.C. I normally wear a size XS in the tops and a size 2 in pants.

I hope you all had a fun weekend and enjoyed the outdoors some! Let me know in the comments if you all have any ideas for future blog posts and if you’d be interested in me sharing my hair tips and tricks.

XOXO,

Autumn

Weekend Fun!

A little glimpse into our weekends and fun adventures.

We finally had some really nice weather this weekend, so being a FL girl, I was so excited about the weather!! I swear I am destined to live on a beach all day everyday. Something about the warm weather makes me excited and more energetic!

Since it was a nice weekend, we got out on Friday afternoon and went to one of our favorite places, the C & O Canal. It’s a beautiful old canal that now has a towpath that you can walk and ride bikes. You can even rent bikes from them there and in the summer they do canal boat rides. I love biking so much, so it was definitely a fun day!

We then headed for ice cream, well ice cream for my hubby at bruster’s. I haven’t blogged about it yet, but I am gluten and dairy free. So ice cream is no bueno for me, except on the occasion when I want to just go for it at an organic ice cream place. So…we ended up stopping at the grocery store for one of my favorite ice cream bars. It’s a brand called So Delicious and they have the best dairy free ice cream bars! My favorite is the almond milk mocha fudge bars. Definitely try them if you are eating dairy free!

Also, check out my yellow top in the pictures! I found this cute thing at Francesca’s for $38. They are having a big sale this weekend, so grab those spring shirts and dresses now! For sizing reference, I am wearing an XS. They are doing a buy one get two 40% off. I linked the shirt above and some shorts that look similar to mine from Target. I am wearing a size 2 in the shorts.

Also, we ordered The Greatest Showman a month back and got it on Tuesday. We seriously love that movie SO much! I swear I could watch a bunch of times, so if you haven’t seen it yet, definitely check it out!

Hope you all enjoy this weekend and the nice weather!

XOXO,

Autumn

Adventurer at Heart

My heart for adventure and travel.

Happy Wednesday! I hope you all are having a great week and enjoying the spring weather that is starting to come our way! I am so excited about the 70 degree weather that is coming this weekend!! That means lots of bike rides and adventuring for us!

The winter time is a really hard season for me. I yearn for warm weather and adventures. I recently realized how much I love traveling! Even if it means just going an hour away from home for a short weekend getaway.

I did get some traveling done this winter, I visited my family twice in Florida and that was such a nice break from the cold. We did a lot of fun things while we were down there, including going to Disney and shopping at one of my favorites stores, Bealls. My favorite part…warm weather and the beach!

My husband and I are going to be moving at the end of May which is keeping us very busy, but once we figure that out, we will start planning our vacay.  I would love to know if you all have any suggestions for a great place to vacay that is affordable and preferably next to a beach.

Back in October, we visited Jamaica and had a wonderful time! It was on of my favorite trips so far! We stayed at the Bahia Principe Resort in Runaway Bay and also got to enjoy Dunn River Falls. If you are traveling to Jamaica anytime soon I recommend doing the Dunn River Falls hike. Make sure to bring a tank top to throw over your swimsuit, grab some water shoes, and don’t bring a bag. Also, I will link a bag for your phone that allows you to take pictures of the falls and get it wet. (Phone seal bag)

I feel like I am always planning the next trip or vacay. Does anyone else love traveling?? I’d love some tips on how to find affordable vacations. I love the google flights to look for the cheapest flights to places, so I definitely recommend that!

Also, check out my shirt from H&M, it’s so perfect for spring! I got so many compliments on it so I wanted to share it and link it on here as well! I found it for $20 and it’s so comfy! I also, linked my jeans I found at Banana Republic.

I hope you all have a great week! Be sure to check back this weekend on some of our weekend adventures!

XOXO,

Autumn

What I love about the weekends

 

 

I love the weekends mostly because it means relaxation and adventuring with my husband! This weekend we ventured to Hobby Lobby for a while and man have I ever felt tired leaving a store. You could spend hours in there looking around at furniture and home decor there.

We are starting to look for houses and are dreaming about the style we want for it already. So thanks to Hobby Lobby, it gave us some really great ideas. I also found this cute letter board I am holding in these pictures. Check it out below!

My husband is always great at surprising me, so we ventured to our favorite coffee shop on Friday afternoon for a nice afternoon date. I definitely recommend Big Oak Cafe if you live in the Chambersburg, PA area. They have a chocolate fondue which I have yet to try, but they have the best lattes and coffee.

We currently still have snow on the ground, even though it’s spring. So I always have a difficult time figuring out what to wear. However, I found this cute top from H&M for $15 that I love wearing during this awkward season. It’s a comfy shirt that can be worn with a sweater over top or without. Here I am wearing it with my favorite comfy sweater from Francesca’s for $30 and my jeans from Banana Republic. I linked the clothes below.

Hopefully you all are enjoying your spring and can still get out and enjoy doing things with your family and friends! Have a great weekend!
