A few Random Things

I swear I didn't mean to disappear this month. But when you choose 'wellness' as your word for the year, you struggle through sickness in January. Yep, that's basically been the last three weeks for me.  I actually took four sick days last week. Four!!! That has never happened before. Its been rough, but the light at the end of the tunnel is here and I'm emerging. *jazz hands* (apologies for any unanswered comments from my last post - ill get to them). 

Anyway, today is a super random chatty post, because I thought "I cant only have one post for January, when I just posted that a goal of mine was 7/8 posts per month this year." So here are a few random things just because:

1. We booked tickets back to Romania for May to head to Danny's cousin's wedding. We may have also booked tickets from Romania to Greece for a few days for our honeymoon. We weren't planning on going on a honeymoon this year actually, as we just got back from Romania and had to head back there right after the wedding ... #expensive. We recently started to toy with the idea of driving from Romania to Greece since we would be there anyway. Randomly yesterday we found cheap flights and that was it. It was all very last minute and hella random but if you know me at all you know Greece is numero uno on my travel bucket list. I now cannot think of anything else but this:

2. Every Thursday for the past few months, even before we left on vacation, Danny and I have been grilling steak. Its become tradition I think. (random: Tuesday night fish - which we also tried - hasn't stuck). I know this is completely random but I think I have perfected the art of steak at this point and it had to be documented. Last night was probably the best one yet. I didn't get a photo of last nights steak (I wolfed that thing down), so here's a photo from a month or so ago:


3. It's Carnival season here, so lots of parties and events are happening around me. I finally feel 'good' enough to head out so this weekend will be a doozy. I plan to go to two fetes (parties) and also have a wedding. Pray for me. 

Somewhere in between the parties this weekend, I will find the time to edit my first batch of photos from my trip in December. I also have a Romanian recipe to edit featuring my mother in law (she is literally in the photos) that I cant wait to share!

Anyway that's all for me today ...

Have the best weekend guys!!

  1. I remember getting really sick after New Years last year, and it's definitely not a fun way to start off the new year, but hopefully you're feeling better now! Greece for your honeymoon sounds amazing, and it's so nice you guys will be able to make it back to Romania for Danny's cousin's wedding too.

  2. Ahhh I'm so exciting about Greece for you! I mean, fi you're going to be all the way on the other side of the world anyway...why not?! The hardest part about international travel (North America > Europe, ex,) is the expensive jump across the Atlantic. I'm jealous of their cheap flights over there. I'm glad you guys are going back for the wedding, but you know that the little side trip to Greece is going to be the highlight!

  3. Greece!!!! That is so exciting! I cannot wait to see picture from your trip. I would love to visit there one day too. I am glad that you are feeling better. Being down and out is the worst, especially right after the holidays when you are trying to get back to routines. That steak looks amazing. Yum!!!Enjoy Carnival!

  5. Greece looks just like it does in pics except 10x better. You are going to love it. I have the BEST memories from my time in Santorini. Fun fact: Romania has always been a fascination of mine because I am a gymnastics nut. You know Nadia and the Romanian national team in Deva and all that :)

  6. Greece and the Greek Islands are high up on my bucket list! I couldn't think of a more romantic honeymoon for you and Danny...I mean you're already in Europe so might as well make something out of it. Enjoy celebrating your marriage and I can't wait to live vicariously through your photos! xo Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  7. Totally jealous of your Greece trip! It's definitely on my bucket list! And I love your Thursday night steak night tradition. We had a Thursday night pizza night tradition going for awhile but I think I'm going to steal your steak night, so much better!
