Coffee Talk v.11

  • Tuck is doing great these days, praise the Lord! Still on crate rest (mostly--we let him out into his doggy playpen to stretch/massage his muscles and get some snuggle time on the floor with us), but we go back to the vet for his follow up appointment on Monday. Fingers crossed the vet either takes him off of strict crate rest or tells us we only have one more week instead of two. Tuck wants to go on walks so badly. Poor baby is getting restless now that he's pain free!
  • I made this recipe last week and D and I are still mooning over it. Perfect for a chilly day (not that we get many of them here in FL, but whatevs). I already want to make it again this week. Who needs Olive Garden when you've got this delish copycat?
  • The Bachelor is back!!! And oh my goodness, it's already shaping up to be a crazy season. Chris is kissing errrrbody...all the girls are certifiable (especially onion/zombie girl...scary)...and I'm almost positive the girl who claims she's a virgin, isn't really a virgin. Rub my belly ring? REALLY? She's gonna regret that one.
  • Whenever I'm feeling down, I like to go bum around the internet and read funny auto correct fails. The parent ones are my favorite. This compilation KILLS ME DEAD. So funny.
  • Albums/songs I can't get enough of right now: Ryn Weaver "OctaHate"//Ed Sheeran "Thinking Out Loud"//Taylor Swift album 1989 (duh)//Vance Joy "Riptide"// Ella Henderson "Ghost"// the entire new One Direction album FOUR--shut up, no judging...someone tell me when they grew up because my mind is slightly blown.  
  • We're heading to VEGAS in 1 week! EEK! We've been dying to experience "Sin City" for as long as either of us can remember and now it's finally happening! It's no Europe, but hey, we're stoked. We've gotten so many recommendations for things to do and see that I'm a little overwhelmed (because I want to DO IT ALL), but as long as I can eat some good food, see a show, drinks some drinks, and snap a million photos, I'll be good. After such a stressful Christmas, this mini-vacay is much needed. Big thank you to my parents for coming all the way down to Florida to take care of the hot dog while we're away! They're the best.
  • Team Cote is getting back into the workout thing again. New year, new you, right? Ugh. Bite me. I hate the gym. But the fact that I can still go lay on the beach in the middle of January here kind of makes me feel like I better get back in shape. Plus, working out honestly does make me feel better, no matter how much I try to resist it.
  • Speaking of working out and getting fit, D and I have been trying the ItWorks! wraps and supplements thanks to a dear friend who is a rep for them. Having a degree in nutrition, I've been all kinds of skeptical about the whole shebang...but after trying a few products, we're kind of excited about them. I have a review coming to the blog next week, so if you've ever wondered about that crazy wrap thing, stay tuned!
  • Have you "LIKED" the Road Less Traveled Facebook page yet? Once I hit 500 followers I'll be hosting a little travel-inspired giveaway...so, tell all your friends!
  • Piggy backing off the last bullet...in case anyone was wondering, my new travel agent biz is doing well so far! Now that we're back in FL, I've been able to really focus on things, get organized, and work with lots of new clients. I'm still learning and my days are so busy, much busier than they've been in a long while, but it's fulfilling. And SO FUN. Keeps me in a constant state of wanderlust, but man, life could be worse! Got ideas for a big vacation? Email me at casey@destinationstoexplore.com and we can make it happen!
