48 Hr. Seattle Adventure

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room. Blogging and I have always had a rocky relationship. It’s one of those awkward on again, off again, love/hate type things.. the timing is never right..you get it?  If you follow me on instagram (@coffeethenchaos), you’d see that I’ve actually been up to a lot of things, like my Seattle Adventure!  But now I’m just bursting to share all the food, travels, coffee, […]

Madrid Final Day

I’m the worst. I can’t ever find the time to do this last post. But it’s seriously the last one, and I need closure, so despite it being nearly 2 1/2 months since this trip, here it is. Our final day in Madrid, like any adventure, was bittersweet. I was exhausted from walking 8-12 miles every day, ready to go home, and at the same time, SO SAD to be […]

Madrid Day Two: Parque del Retiro

Madrid Day 2 was JAM PACKED with stuff to do and beautiful sights to see. We started off with breakfast at Il Tavolo Verde. We thought we had a lazy start, but when we arrived, we had to wait a few minutes for them to open. Classic Spain 😉 Il Tavolo Verde was definitely my favorite little breakfast place. It was adorably decorated, run by the cutest young couple, and […]

Madrid Day One (Spain Day Four)

This day was probably the most uneventful of our trip. We spent a large part of our morning/afternoon going to the train station, taking the train from Barcelona to Madrid and then settling into our hotel room. Making it to our hotel was quite the adventure and long story short, we spent a night in a small town outside of Madrid called Pinto. Pinto was a quiet, totally normal little […]

Barcelona Day Two

Day Two: After 20 hours of travel time, and a very FULL first day in Barcelona, we knocked out for the night. Minus Jackie. She went out and partied the night away until 4 am, crazy girl. We were exhausted and all got a late jump on the morning–Tiff and I woke up at 11 am. To start the day, Jackie made plans for her mother (and us) to meet […]

An Intro to Spain, Barcelona Day One

Soooo, I recently spent a week in Spain. NBD. Actually, it was a HUGE deal. This was my first time in Europe and I had no idea what to expect. All I had to go off of were the beautiful movie scenes and pictures in history books so I probably had a very romanticized version of what Spain was going to look like. Well, Spain did not disappoint. I took more than […]

Our Favorite Christmas Activities

We LOVE Christmas. In no particular order, here are some of our favorite Christmas activities around OC/LA! Most of them require little to no money, and involve looking at pretty things (: 1.) Brea lights There is a lovely little neighborhood between Lambert and Birch in Brea, CA that really goes all out with their house decorations. There’s a nice route set up with little signs called Santa’s Route that […]

The Lattes in Vegas

We celebrated Jess’ 22nd in Vegas and we did it our way. Traveling between the four of us is one of the things we love most! But we aren’t your typical Vegas-goers. Most people might go to a club, gamble, and go crazy on the strip. But, we went for one day of eating and shopping (and alright..maybe a little crazy). Jess enjoying a Ragin’ Bull Fat Tuesday, and a […]

Santa Barbara

We went to Santa Barbara for food, photos, and fun. And we had a LOT of all these. We LOVE to travel  (almost as much as coffee *gasp*) and so these small escapades on random weekends are what keep us going through our busy, busy weeks. 1. Grand Central Market We stopped at DTLA’s Grand Central Market before making the 2.5 hour drive up to Santa Barbara. If you’ve never been […]
