Weekly Wrap...October 28




This week was another busy week! I actually had a  similar trip that I had last week, but I had different experiences.



 I had a layover in Ontario, California again, but rather than going for a run. my crew and I took an Uber to North Etiwanda Preserve and hiked up the mountain to see some waterfalls. That evening I went to the mall again to do some shopping and and got another In -N -Out Burger.


The following day we were in Orlando so I went to Disney Springs and did some more shopping and ate at Bongos. It is the Gloria Estefan Cuban restaurant. We ordered empanadas and plantains and they were awful! We actually sent them back. 


                                       The only thing that was good was my avocado salad.




 Since our dinner was a disappointment we though we would splurge on dessert and treat ourselves to a Ghirardelli brownie sundae!


The next evening I visited another Haunted House in the Philly area. It was the Bates Motel. I actually think I liked this one better than the Penitentiary. There were several attractions there including a Haunted house, hayride, and corn maze. The next evening I finally went and saw the new Halloween movie. It was pretty good.


The next morning it was back to work again. I only had to do a day trip so it wasn't too bad. When I returned home I went for a short run and almost got attacked by a dog. He looked like a small miniature pinscher mix. He ran up to me in the park and continued to bark and snap at me. Why is it the little dogs seem to be the most vicious? If that was a golden retriever he would have just came up and licked you to death. 


The next day at work we had a layover in Denver so we decided to hike up in Boulder again.This time we hike the Flatirons.




                         Then we splurged at Snooze for their pancake flight. 




 Peanut butter, blueberry cobbler, and pineapple upside down cake ones. They were delicious!

We had a long next day at work with a short layover in Austin so we didn't do too much except relax in the hot tub that evening.     -L

    1. It has been a lot of fun. Especially if you have a great crew to do it with.

  2. I would have loved visiting the Bates Motel! But only if I could close my ears (those things aren't as scary if you can't hear the sounds). I wondered if the Halloween movie was any good. I'd like to see how they wrap it up after all these years. It's great to see you taking advantage of the towns you have layovers in. Thanks for linking!

    1. I wonder if they will make that movie the final one. The way they ended it makes you think it may not be.

  4. Your travels look like so much fun! I bet it gets tiring though. It is pretty cool that you get to travel and explore so much while working.

    1. It does get a bit tiring, but for the longest time I never did anything so I told myself I need to take advantage of these fun cities and start doing stuff.

  5. How great that your crew likes to do active things too. I'm impressed at how you fit in so much around your trips. I love Snooze. Their pancakes really are yummy! I think I'd rather have a brownie sundae than empanadas anyway.

    1. When we get long overnights it is great. But sometimes it does not work out like that. I have worked 12 hour days with only a short 10 hour overnight.

  6. I love Snooze! I don't go often, maybe two or three times a year, and I love their pancake flights. The Pineapple upside down is one of my favorites.

  11. What a busy week! I've eaten at Bongos before and wasn't super impressed, either. But that brownie sundae looks amazing!

  12. What a week! Love the way you make the most out of layovers!

  13. OMG, all that food looks so delicious . . . wow, you are super busy! During & after work. It all sounds like such fun (except for work).

    Not ALL little dogs are mean. Just like not all pit bulls are mean! I have converted a lot of people to little dogs with mine. It's all about how you raise them. :)

  14. Were you at Chautauqua Park in Boulder? Paul and I have hiked there before. Next time you are in Boulder you should drive past the JonBenet Ramsey house. :)

  15. Those pancakes look delicious! I would love to be able to spend some time in Colorado. I can't stand scary movies so Halloween is NOT on my to do list. I'm planning on going to Disney Springs for Halloween so I'm sure something will be going on down there!
