Big Family Vacation at Mt. Hood Tiny House Village

Big Family Vacation at Mt. Hood Tiny House Village

This year had been a little chaotic for everyone so we decided to take an end-of-the-year vacation with my immediate family. We were at first thinking we should just rent a big beach house, but the beach this time of the year in the PNW isn’t the most pleasant, so I suggested maybe going to the mountain so we could at least have some fun in the snow if we’re going to be “cold” anyways.

So I searched and actually stumbled upon Mt. Hood Tiny Village through Instagram and knew this is just the place that we all needed to stay at. We each booked our own tiny home, that way we could have our own space yet still visit in the center at the fire pit or in each other’s “tiny homes”.

These places were so cute and I knew I needed to claim the Ingrid before my family since it was spacious! When I research things, I do it fully and hard, so my family was mad that I selected that one, but hey, they did let me take charge. LOL

Best Places for Street Tacos in Vancouver, WA

street tacos

If there’s one food that I’d never get tired of, it’s probably Mexican food. The spice, the rice, beans, salsa and carne asada is like heaven to my taste buds. When we visited Mazatlán, Mexico years ago, I had some of the best food I have ever tasted outside of the tourist town. But can you get that authentic taste elsewhere? Why yes, yes you can!

Although I haven’t tried some of these places, they are highly rated and recommended in our city.

Now everyone’s taste buds are obviously different, so what one may like, others may not, but it seemed like everyone agreed that these are some of the best places in Vancouver, WA to find street tacos. These are in no particular order.

Just a little bit of info if you see them offer delivery services through Grub hub or what-have-you, these delivery services take quite a bit of money from the restaurants who are trying to stay afloat during this pandemic which results in all of the added fees and the higher prices on menu items. It’s best to support by picking up yourself so they’re keeping their money and it not being taken by places like Grub hub.

Support Local Businesses in Uptown and Downtown Vancouver, WA by Ordering Take Out!

With the state shut down and local businesses being affected hardcore, we need to do our part in helping keep our city afloat by ordering to go or having meals delivered so these small businesses don’t have to shut down permanently. We got hit by this pandemic, but fortunately, we’ve been able to stay afloat with unemployment that eventually got worked out and with the added stimulus bonus each week. We know that won’t be going on for too long, so I am hoping my husband is able to find work soon. Until then, we’ll do our part in helping out our community.

5 Things You Should Do Before Trying to Conceive

5 Things You Should Do Before Trying to Conceive

I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.

As some of you may know, I suffered a miscarriage 3 and a half years ago. It was hard for me to wrap my mind around it at the time, but as the days go on, it becomes a little easier to deal with; not forget, because I will never forget that I had life in my womb for 2 and a half months.

A couple of weeks after my D&C procedure, I had a follow-up visit with the OBGYN who did my surgery.  Basically asking what my plans were and how I was feeling and if everything has been alright post-op. Everything was pretty normal. Very minimal bleeding and pain, emotions like a rollercoaster. I literally cried when Shrek 3 came on TV after seeing all of their babies. I was sad before that but that just pushed me over the top. I still get sad of course, but life must go on since I had my Arya girl that I needed to be mentally, emotionally, and physically there for.
