3 favorites from Jackson Hole, WY
Before we get into today’s post, I wanted to mention that if you’ve been thinking about starting a blog, now is a fabulous time. Bluehost is offering a sale –> $2.95/mo for 36 months on their Basic Plan (<–affiliate link). That’s 60% off their typical rate. Awhile back I shared a post on how to start a blog fast. Blogging has brought me a platform to advocate for true health (away from restriction, bingeing, food rules, and overexercising) and I’m so grateful to the blogging world for that. If blogging is something you’re interested in, I highly recommend starting a blog.
On to some favorite vacation things. I loved Jackson Hole (more than I even expected to!) and appreciate all who sent recommendations for restaurants to eat at + hikes to go on. Here are my 3 favorite things we did…
I loved this bakery. I could’ve happily eaten here everyday.
One day we went for breakfast. I got scrambled eggs that were perfectly cooked + almond croissant + a decaf vanilla latte.
Andrew is a bread pudding lover, so he got the bread pudding french toast.
The morning we went was chilly and Persephone had blankets for anyone to use…fabulous.
Another day we went for lunch.
I got a baguette sandwich made with truffle butter + prosciutto + arugula + Italian peppers. Served with homemade chips and another vanilla latte…that they definitely didn’t make decaf because I was a jittery mess after lol.
I loved the atmosphere at the bakery. Just look…
They also had this little nook / shelf area where they would place your drink when it was ready and they’d call out your name. Look at that little teapot, so cute!
2. Jenny Lake Hike + Boat Ride
I only did one hike on the trip. My knees are still extremely painful. Pain-wise…some days are better than others. Mentally…it sucks some days more than others. I’m finding peace with knowing God is teaching me something through this. I’m still doing my PT exercises and just ordered a heated knee brace for the evenings. Heat seems to help them a lot.
Jenny Lake was beautiful and my favorite hike I’ve ever been on, mainly because it involved a boat ride at the end. The hike was mid morning and even though I wasn’t hungry I knew lunch would be later than normal, so I got some M&M’s for a snack from the shop near the trailhead.
Then we hiked!
It was so beautiful!
And the hike ended at a waterfall…
Then we took a boat back to our car.
hiking + boat ride = best kind of hike!
After Jenny Lake we went and ate nachos. Andrew and I split a half order and the waiter made the annoying comment of, “there is no way you two could finish even the half order.” Umm okay, jerk…I’m allowed to listen to my hunger and fullness cues. We finished them…and both could’ve eaten more.
3. Nice public bathrooms.
This one is ridiculous, but my most frequently said phrase on the trip was, “i’m gonna run to the bathroom real quick!” Pregnancy has me peeing all the time. I’ve found if I drink a 16oz bottle of water I end up having to pee 15 minutes later every 30 minutes for 1 1/2 hours…it’s like clockwork and is hilarious.
So with all the peeing, the nice public bathrooms in town were welcomed with open arms!
Those were some of my favorite trip happenings. I also got in a lot of watercoloring, which was fabulous. I’ll be starting a new series with watercoloring soon :)
