Christmas 2016 Highlights

I broke my promise of writing this post last week, but better late than never. Work was extremely busy last week so I didn't have much time to do other things. Here are a few highlights from our nine day trip to California over Christmas break. We drove from Albuquerque to California and then back.

Drive - Part 1


The drive from Albuquerque to San Diego is roughly 12 hours so we broke it up into two days. We traveled to Tucson on Christmas Eve and then on to San Diego on Christmas Day.

Attempt at a Nativity Scene photo with the pups in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. This was the best they could do!

Pregnant with Twins - Week 24


The kiddos are getting big! I can pretty much feel them moving around all throughout the day now, which is both cool and reassuring!

Pregnant with Twins - Week 21


We forgot to take a bump photo this week! Whoops! But we had quite the eventful week.

I got to see the babies again, and I have been getting more and more uncomfortable.

River of Lights at ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden

Celebrating its 20th year, Albuquerque's River of Lights was recently named one of The 15 Most Spectacular Holiday Light Displays in the U.S. by MSN. Last weekend, hubby and I decided at the last minute to visit the holiday display for the first time. It was relatively warm (in the mid-40s) and we wanted to get out of the house for a bit.

Pregnant with Twins - Week 20


20 weeks!! If I were having a "normal/singleton" pregnancy, this would mark the traditional halfway point. Even though we passed the halfway point some weeks ago, I still feel like this is a special milestone week for us. It took us so long to get here. 

Not much changed this week.

Symptoms: Frequent nose bleeds, back pain, trouble sleeping, digestive issues, aches and pains. Trouble bending over. Can't see my toes anymore when I'm standing up straight.

Babies' size: Banana

Appetite: Same as usual except I have been craving sweets and sandwiches. Bring me all the carbs!

Pregnant with Twins - Week 19


Symptoms: Frequent nose bleeds, back pain, trouble sleeping, digestive issues.

Babies' size: Mango 

Appetite: Same as last week.

Top 5 Must-Do's in Louisville, Kentucky

Over Veterans' Day Weekend, I visited the state of Kentucky for the first time and spent three days in Louisville. I felt like three days was the perfect amount of time to see all of the highlights. I would recommend an extra day if you plan on going outside of the city and hitting up some distilleries along the Bourbon Trail or if you just need more time to eat more good food!


These are the five things I would consider must-dos on a first time visit to Louisville.
