On The Encore Again ๐Ÿšข๐Ÿป [Alaska With Mom]

So, my blog has been a bit abandoned… ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘ˆ๐Ÿ’ง Iโ€™m so sorry about that. I also seem to be becoming more and more of a hermit. I am sorry about that, too.

Thereโ€™s been a bunch of reasons. Iโ€™ve been reading a lot (and I do mean a LOT), been kind of busy deep inside my own head, perhaps having not exactly a mid-life crisis as much as a mid-life reassessment, plus preparing for upcoming trips, and then going on them.

Let’s start with the Alaska cruise: it was amazing. When it comes to the trip’s details, this time, unlike last time, Iโ€™m making an effort to blog more about it.

To make it easier, I opted not to decorate my photos with purikura this time around, because I think that wanting to do that and not having time to do it was the main reason I didnโ€™t properly blog about the Alaska trip last year. So, I apologize if things are a little less colorful on this post.

With that said, this will be a very long and extremely image-intensive post. So I’m posting it under a cut.

Silver Lakes Garage Sale & More! ๐Ÿš‚

Yesterday Christopher’s mom and grandma arrived to visit with us during the weekend. We had truffle burgers and fries for dinner, that we made at home, and drank and played video games. It was a lovely evening.

While our friend and I were out getting grocery stuff and alcohol, I came across this really cute whiskey bottle so I had to take a photo:

Today we were up early in spite of drinking late at night, because the day’s main event was the Silver Lakes Community Garage Sale. Our first and only huge score was right at the beginning and I’ll let the next photo speak for itself:

All of that was $65, almost all of it new in package –basically all items were $10, or $5, or such, it was absolutely ridiculous and keeping my cool was a challenge. I can’t wait to have a nice romantic evening with Christopher, playing like dumbasses with our trains again. ๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ’•

Afterwards we had I โค Mac & Cheese for lunch (great as always) and Menchie’s for dessert:

Tonight we are dining in again, but no less fancy for that fact. We will be having teriyaki salmon and rice, and I expect another evening of games and snacking, soon as I can finish updating my blog and get back downstairs. I’m almost all done updating it now, sans for one post and a bunch of fitness ones. I’m really sorry I neglected my blog for so long… really trying to get life back to normal. ๐Ÿ˜…
