Another a Year Older

Posted on by Amanda

Last week, I celebrated my birthday… I am another year older maybe just maybe I’m finally a little bit wiser.

The past year has been a whirlwind of change… Jerad secured a full time job two weeks after my birthday last year. Successfully ending our year of unemployment and underemployment. Bonus, we both work at the same college now. J I’d never have guessed that one!

The End of an Era

Posted on by Amanda

As of yesterday afternoon, we are no longer the owners of our sweet little cottage.  In regards to real estate transactions, the sale was simple and easy. As I type this, I’m sitting inside my new home. Looking at boxes and chaos all while wondering if this home will ever feel like home.

Where (Not) to Stay in Atlanta: Crowne Plaza Midtown

Posted on by Amanda

I am a mega fan of IHG brand hotels and have been for the better part of a decade. It helps that I have achieved Platinum status with the hotel chain.  Before booking our hotel in Atlanta, I carefully reviewed all my options… googled distances… and read reviews.

I selected the Crowne Plaza Midtown based on price and location. I booked even though I knew the property had a plethora of negative reviews. I assumed my fellow travelers were picky.

Crowne Plaza- City View

48 Hours in Atlanta

Posted on by Amanda

I’m finally home from my East Coast road trip and exhausted.  I was lucky enough to spend two nights and two days in lovely Atlanta, Georgia. I consider myself a savvy traveller but Atlanta proved to be a problematic trip… I even managed to be stranded in the middle of the city for an hour!!!! Taxi service in Atlanta is deplorable.
