Adventure at Discovery Park

Saturday I made a road trip up to Union City, TN to Discovery Park, which is a new science center/museum thing. I’m an overgrown child and massive nerd, so I love going to those kinds of places. I’m even spending a week in DC this fall and chances are I’ll just be at the museums most days. Anyways. I went with my sorority’s alumnae chapter and their children, which was so fun.

Discovery Park basically cherry picked the key/good parts of the major museums, got reproductions of things (like the Printing Press) and donations from locals (arrowheads, military memorabilia, etc) and put it in one big place. If you ever find yourself in TN/KY and want a fun day trip, I highly recommend it.

I have a dinosaur named after me, no big deal. :) I took some more pictures but I somehow lost my camera in my apartment between Saturday and today. Not cool.

{Travel} California Vlogs | Day 1: Travel

It’s here, it’s here! The long awaited, well promised California vlog! I realized I filmed a lot, at least a lot in San Francisco so I figured I’d split these into each day, rather than make one insanely long (and hard to edit) vlog that you probably wouldn’t watch.

Make sure you like the video and subscribe to my channel! I’ll be putting the rest of the California Vlogs up within the next two weeks or so and I have some more fun videos planned!

Just as a fun thing, what’s your favorite Starbucks drink that you could totally drink a Trenta of? Let me know in the comments here or on my video!!

{Tech} Microsoft’s Layoffs & Why You Should Care

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m integrating my “lifestyle” blog with my “tech” blog. I know many of you aren’t techies and some probably don’t even have Twitter yet (I’m looking at you Sara…). But let me explain why you should care that Microsoft is laying off 18,000 employees. Because that’s some scary stuff.

Tiny Houses

If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed this weekend I went a bit crazy with the pinning – but not just general pinning. I’ve become obsessed with Tiny Houses, or, the Tiny House “Movement”.

The Tiny House “Movement” is essentially people who are sick of living in these mega houses and the debt & environmental strain they cause. Tiny Houses are typically 200 sq ft or less (some can be larger, up to 600 sq ft) and most of them are actually built on trailers.

Did you know that most counties/regions have restrictions that say you must build a structure at least a minimum of 1,000 sq ft? Sometimes that minimum is higher. The way most people get around this is by building their tiny homes on a trailer and placing that on their land, since a trailer is a temporary structure and has little to no restrictions on it.
