Took myself on a mini road trip this weekend to see Samantha! We got some sun, haircuts, and spent an alarming amount of time watching Jersey Shore.
Positively 4th Street in Ocean City, NJ
Coffee date with Sinead and Alexis! I got the heavenly nut latte and they weren't kidding about the heavenly part. Legit a caffeinated blessing handed down by the coffee gods themselves.
Back Bay Ale House in Atlantic City, NJ
In AC, summer starts on Memorial Day weekend – but it's not officially the summer season until you've had a mason jar from Back Bay Ale House Celebrated Ryan’s 30th birthday with a mojito that was definitely not what I ordered but tasty nonetheless.
Chinese Lantern Festival in Philadelphia, PA
I can't even tell you how many times I drove past this festival both last and this summer before finally going to see it for real. It was definitely interesting to learn the history of these Chinese symbols and see them in such bright form!
Manayunk Tavern in Philadelphia, PA
Got some sun on a long bike ride with my mom and aunt along the Schuylkill River and Wissahickon trails. Rewarded myself with this bangin' pineapple ale.
I'm pretty horrible at bowling and always end up breaking my nails, but I got one single strike this day so I'm pleased.
Kensington Neighborhood in Philadelphia, PA

KEF Airport in Keflavik, Iceland
Lebowski Bar in Reykjavík, Iceland
Had burgers and, of course, a White Russian at the Lebowski Bar on our last night in Iceland. Wish we had a little more time (and money, because y'all: Iceland is expensive) to explore the city more. Iceland has officially been added to my "must go back" list!
After making the drive from Akureyri (through hail, rain, snow, and sun), this little cafe called Laki Tours was the only place open in the small town, so we got more 'za.
