Trip to Ocean Shores

When we arrived to the timeshare we realized they actually did have a gym on the 2nd floor and wi-fi! The online description said the exact opposite. I was super happy about that! I don't feel too comfortable without my caloriecounter just yet .

Here are some pics from the trip...

 The view of the ocean from the living room was so beautiful!

There were lots of deer everywhere. I have never seen a deer before so that was pretty cool. Here is one staring up at me when I was on the balcony.

It was Todd's birthday on the 11th so I made us all vanilla cupcakes. Happy B day Todd!

The greatest part about this beach was the Snowy Owls. You can get a better view if you click on the pic.

  The Quinault Rainforest loop trail. This trail was so much fun to walk.

These pants are starting to get loose on me.
The trip was from Feb. 5th-14th. I had so much fun! Todd's parents were so nice and very accommodating with our vegan-ism. It was a little tough when going out to eat because most things had seafood but I found at least one vegan option on each menu. I even made us all vegan blueberry pancakes for breakfast one of the days. Todd's dad (Mike) was like " These taste like buttermilk pancakes!". When I said "Nope soy milk" he made a fake yucky face as a joke. My favorite thing on this trip was learning how to play rummy. I forgot how much fun it is to play cards with a group of people.

When I arrived home I weighed myself to see what the damage was. The scale said 168.8! That's a loss of 1.4 pounds! I have never lost weight during a vacation before.


  1. Cool! I have never been there before. It's been on R's wishlist ever since moving back up here. Those cupcakes looked yummy. And.....I can't believe you've never seen a deer before! That's crazy

  2. You should plan a vacation there. I bet it would be even cooler during the summertime. That is if everything isn't booked. Those cupcakes were pretty good. I didn't have my mixer with me so I had to buy pillsbury frosting which is surprisingly vegan. Still home made frosting is superior.

  3. I really want to go there! Thanks for sharing and congrats on losing while on vacation! That is success :)
