I Heart Hiking

Yesterday was so much fun! Matt is going on a big hiking trip with friends in a few weeks and wanted to break in his new boots, so we headed south about 10 miles to Haw River yesterday for a little hiking along the riverside trails! We’d never been there before so it was fun to explore. Very peaceful!  I loved how this part looked Continue Reading …

Trail FAIL.

Guess what? I’m done with Biochem!!!!!!!!!! Well, for now anyway :) We have another harder biochem in the fall and then the spring… bah. But at least I get the summer away from it, haha. The biochem exam wasn’t until noon yesterday (yes, Saturday… weird right?), so I met up with friends Jill and Lindsey for an early morning run to blow off Continue Reading …

Hiking in the Puerto Rican Rainforest!

Yesterday, at the recommendation of a bunch of you guys, Matt and I took a trip out to the rainforest to go hiking! The first stop on our tour was this cool observation tower. There were gorgeous views of the rainforest and the ocean from the top!  Matt’s Droid phone can take panoramic photos — so cool, right?   Continue Reading …

Winter in North Carolina is Amazing

Yesterday was awesome. It was 65 and sunny here in North Carolina — yes, in January. Winter here rules. Matt and I spent the morning getting some work out of the way so that by lunch time, we’d be free to play!

Swinging: My New Favorite Form of Exercise

It was 50 and sunny here today. HEAT WAVE!!!!!!!! Heh ;) This morning, I even busted out my awesome new lounge chair that I bought using the gift card CSN Stores sent me to use to try out some of their products! It rocks. Those holes on the sides are so you can flip over and put your arms through to hold a book while lying on your stomach! Continue Reading …

A New Year’s Day Hike at Partnach Gorge in Germany

Happy New Year! I hope 2011 is starting off well for all of you. I want to do a fun 2010 year in review recap, but I’m thinking it will have to wait until I’m back home from vacation! Today’s German adventure was a New Year’s Day hike :) My family, Matt, and I headed over to Partnach Gorge to hike and it was spectacular. The gorge Continue Reading …

Hiking the Day Away

Good morning! This is probably the coolest picture ever: Yes — that would be Matt on our hike yesterday! He’s fun to hike with because he’s part monkey, part Tigger… and a former gymnast :) We were all obsessed with this fun swinging bridge! Matt and I and three of my grad school friends all went for the hike, which was about 5 miles Continue Reading …
