My Husband and I - The Adventure

I don't ever really talk about my personal life much on here, outside of fitness so today I wanted to post about my husband and I. Our relationship and what works for us!

We have been married for 6.5 years, together for nearly 10. We have two kids together, Hayden who is 7 and Adalyn who turned 4 today! (EEK! My baby is growing up :( )

We have had to grow up together since getting married at the ripe ole' age of 20 and 24. We have learned a lot a long the way and each day we continue to learn. One of our biggest lessons in marriage is that it has its ebbs and flows. Sometimes it's really great and other times we want to kill each other! Not literally....at least I hope not! Haha

One thing that really binds us together and that we LOVE doing together is working out. We are both extremely into fitness and love sharing workouts, exercises, nutrition advice, etc etc...

BUT something you may not know about us is that we LOVE Adventure. We love doing new and exciting things. One being travelling, just the two of us. We haven't gone anywhere too extravagant as of yet, but it has been super fun nonetheless.

Our most fun trip we have taken together, to date, is Las Vegas last May 2013. We kind of planned it on a whim. I didn't know what to expect as we have never been nor have we ever gambled. Maybe that's what made it extra fun...the unknown? Can I just say that we had the TIME OF OUR LIVES there?!!

We stayed 4.5 days. Some things we did - went hiking (10 miles!), had a pool day, saw two Cirque De Soleil Shows, went to a night club and danced.

But our favorite day was when we decided to walk the strip and hit up as many hotel casinos as possible. We made a game out of it. We said we would go into each casino play enough to get a free drink and if we were winning we would stay a little longer, but if we were losing we would move on to the next casino. It was so freeing and so much fun! We made it to 10-12 I think! And we made sure to get a picture at/or of each . Here are a few.









 
We both feel like we got the full experience of Vegas - we did what you are 'supposed' to do there. We stayed up entirely too late, drank way too much, gambled our hearts out (even won a little!), explored, and had no regrets!

It was an experience we will both have forever and a wonderful memory we made together. We were able to get to know each other again and be 'kids'. We didn't make many plans like we do in real life. We were gypsies. We were young, wild, and free. And it was AMAZING.

I encourage you to do something fun, new and exciting in your marriage. Step outside of what is your norm and do something maybe you would never do. Take chances - be a little wild! Let your hair down and just be in the moment, whatever it is.

  1. I love this! I was thinking about going to Vegas in March for my 30th! This may make me want to go a little bit more! I have never been, but it looks and sounds like so much fun! :)
