VOODOO DOUGHNUT

VOODOO DOUGHNUT

We had an incredible trip to Portland! I am thrilled to be able to share Voodoo Doughnut shop and much more with the You, Me, and Tennessee family. Voodoo Doughnut is a place I’ve seen on Food Network and read about on Pinterest. I’ve wanted to go for years and I am over the moon to say that we finally made it happen. I encourage each and every one of you to make your own list and start marking things off. You won’t regret it!

5 TIPS FOR VISITING NEW YORK CITY

5 TIPS FOR VISITING NEW YORK CITY

I would like to start off by saying that while tropical locations are popular for girls’ trips, NYC is certainly a competitive choice as well. We had an absolute blast for my friend’s bachelorette weekend and now I’m dying to go back. We went for 3 days and managed to fit in a trip to The Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and a Broadway show. Whew! Needless to say I spent this week catching up on sleep but I’d do it all over again. I got a lot of messages about what we did and if I had any tips for those who are planning their own trips to the Big Apple. Continue reading “5 TIPS FOR VISITING NEW YORK CITY”

HEY THERE, 27.

HEY THERE, 27.

Thank you to everyone who wished me “Happy Birthday” on Sunday! I was incredibly fortunate to be in New York City on my birthday for my best friend’s bachelorette weekend.

I’ve never felt closer to living out my dreams and it’s because of your support. Continue reading “HEY THERE, 27.”

WEST SIDE MARKET IN CLEVELAND

WEST SIDE MARKET IN CLEVELAND

Chris and I visited Cleveland, Ohio during Easter weekend and a trip to West Side Market is a must when you’re in the neighborhood. I first visited the market back in April and mentioned it in a blog post here. I was thrilled to be back and once again utterly jealous of the people who live within walking distance of all this delicious food. Our goal was to find the perfect dessert to share on Easter Sunday. Bunny macarons took home the blue ribbon! Aside from decadent treats, West Side Market also offers a staggering variety of meats, cheeses, fresh baked breads, and produce. Let me show you around!

5 THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU CAN’T TRAVEL

5 THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU CAN’T TRAVEL

Y’all know I love to travel. I started You, Me, and Tennessee because of my passion for travel and it has been incredibly fun to share my adventures (big and small) with all of you. Here’s the thing… the “hitch in my giddy-up” if you will… I work a full time job as a nurse. I don’t have unlimited funds or unlimited vacation days. I saw something on Facebook yesterday that made me laugh out loud. It said, “How are you guys going on trips so often? How is your time off being approved? Who is paying your bills?” I’ve had the same thought a hundred times! Since I started writing on the blog I’ve felt pressure to post about “all the fun I’m having”. I’ve felt like if I’m not posting from the Seven Wonders of the World every week then I’m somehow a fraud as travel blogger and that’s simply not true. So this week I wanted to share with you the 5 things you can do when you can’t travel as much as you’d like. You’re not a failure because your Instagram feed isn’t flashy and color coordinated. Remember that through those avenues people can pick and choose the parts of life they want you to see. Here are 5 things you can do to live your best life when larger trips seem out of the question.

SUGAR MOUNTAIN SKI TRIP

SUGAR MOUNTAIN SKI TRIP

While the weather forecast predicted rain all day, we were able to enjoy our time at Sugar Mountain. The mountains blocked most of the rain so we saw mostly fog and mist which weren’t great for visibility but it didn’t ruin our day. I had a wonderful time learning to ski on blades which are shorter than traditional skis. They were less intimidating and easier to maneuver. Continue reading “SUGAR MOUNTAIN SKI TRIP”
