Surviving New Orleans: Day Four

22,965 steps … Surprisingly only my feet hurt. During past vacations, Matthew and I have found which parts of our bodies are most likely to give out first (Matthew’s hip and my right knee). I guess our bodies are giving us a break this trip. Okay, on to the day’s events. This is Val and […]

Surviving New Orleans: Day Two

Val here! First of all, I’d like to point out that on this day six years ago, we were getting married and the rain held off until the photographer snapped our last photo. We had no such luck today … We woke up to a very rainy Dallas, but it didn’t deter us from going […]

Surviving the Outer Banks: Day Seven

     Today started with a plan to get up at 5 a.m. to see the sunrise on the beach. This is how this scenario actually went:      *Valeri (me) wakes Matthew at 5 a.m.*     *Matthew whines*     “Nooooo. I don’t want to.”     *Valeri rolls her eyes and starts to get up*     *She looks outside and sees […]

Surviving the Outer Banks: Day Five

     Good morning, readers. Valeri here.      Wow am I tired.     I’m not sure whether it’s due to our Washington, D.C., trip, the kayaking we did this morning or if it’s just the heat getting to me, but I am ready for a week of nothing but sleep.      As I mentioned, one of the culprits of […]

Surviving the Outer Banks: Day Three

     Valeri here.      First things first, Matthew and I have managed to not turn into lobsters our first full day. #Winning     We are still just as pale as when we left Missouri … just in case you were wondering. The SPF70 we used may have helped.      Okay, on to the day.     We woke up […]

Surviving the Outer Banks: Day One

     Okay, where to start?      Well, let’s start with the fact that this is my second attempt at this post. Also, this is Val.      I was typing away while Matthew was driving, then something went wrong and here I am back to a blank page. I apologize in advance … my quick wit […]

Surviving San Francisco – Day Two

     This is Valeri and I’m here to fill you in on our day. Simply put, day two was a success!      I’m sure most of you think “The Pearons’” first stop was for coffee, however, that wasn’t true this morning. You see, on our way to In-n-Out Burger last night, Matthew saw we were mere […]

Surviving London – Day Twelve

     This is Valeri and this post will hopefully be short and sweet … but I can’t promise that.     We woke up this morning sad to leave London. Matthew had threatened many times that he was staying and I just knew I’d miss the beautiful city.     However, I was also a bit excited for Paris – […]

Surviving London – Day Ten

     Hello, Valeri here.      Today was our “market day,” along with a few little things we had planned to do between markets.      Well, not everything went as planned, which has happened to us a few times on this trip. Surprisingly, with us being planners, you would think it would drive […]

Surviving London – Day Eight

     Hello, this is Valeri.     I’m just sitting here with my feet up in our hotel (boy do they hurt) waiting for the series nine premiere of Doctor Who to come on at 7:40 p.m. I know you’re all jealous … and you rightfully should be.     Anyways, more on Doctor Who later tonight.      We […]

Surviving London – Day Five

      Hey! Valeri here.  We are somehow on our fourth day of London. Not sure how that happened. Everything just needs to slow down.      After breakfast at the hotel, we went out to find our morning coffee. This morning’s choice was Prufrock and we were not disappointed … except, once again, no drip coffee. […]

Surviving London – Day Three

     Hey! Valeri here, on this partly cloudy and mostly raining day in London.      Our morning began with a wonderful breakfast spread here at the hotel. They had everything: Kiwi, Salami, Prosciutto, cereal, tofu, toast/jam, all sorts of cheeses and more. It was very good. Matthew was also happy that they gave him four juice […]

Catch up time!
