impulsive & spontaneous


{1} Pre-roadtrip breakfast
{2} Gorgeous Rainbow Bridge to Niagara Falls, NY  
{3} Great grandma's vintage ring   
{4} Ben & Jerry's smoothie is my shopping companion

Boyfriend is fairly impulsive by nature, I on the other hand (being a Virgo) have a planner for every part of my life. I think that's why we click, he keeps me on my toes and I keep him grounded. As a surprise, I decided to reverse our roles this weekend, and just once take a walk in his shoes. A simple "road trip this weekend?" text and I had all of a sudden transformed into this spontaneous gall. Let me tell you, that never (ever) happens. 

So we got our bums out of bed super early on Saturday and headed to Niagara Falls,  to visit a friend, do some Christmas shopping and get away from the dreaded boring daily routine. After 15 hours, we made our way back across the border...with a belly full of delicious duck (if anyone lives in Buffalo - The Blue Monk is the way to go)....& impossible to pronounce German beers...a car full of Christmas presents...and memories to last us until we can get away again. 

OH. And unfortunately a little of this happened...

I love that you took a spontaneous road trip - and I think you are right, it's good to have someone in your life to get you to break out of your normal overly scheduled routines.

Your grandmas ring is gorgeous too!

Katya said...

Good for you doing something spontaneous! I am not spontaneous at all, so I kind of freak out if something isn't planned. Being with your man makes it all the more fun! Heather

Katya said...

EEE! I love Niagara Falls trips! I'm originally from Buffalo ( and there now for the holiday), but I've never been to Blue Monk. I'll have to check it out sometime!

Katya said...

What a fun idea to switch things up. I'm like you - a total planner. I get pretty flustered when something comes up that wasn't on my agenda. This type of little trip sounds like it would be good for me and my bf :)

Katya said...

Oh what a fun post! I love the preroad trip pic in particular, I usually don't eat McDonald's but it's the perfect thing before you have to hit the road! Great post love :)

Love a good road trip, especially when it starts with McDonald's hashbrowns and ends with friends and shopping!

Love that you took a spontaneous trip this weekend! It sounds like you had a blast; I feel inspired to do the same thing. Road trips are The. BEST.

Also, I adore the video. You weren't lying when you said you sing in the car. We have to duet some time. ;)

How fun is this?! Thanks for commenting on my blog : ) I'm so glad I found yours!

Katya said...

You guys are fun! It takes two to tango...or take spontaneous road trips:-) xoxo

Katya said...

Hahahahahahaha OKAY we can be best friends now, kthx. I've never been to Niagara Falls! But... I love to sing crazy loud in cars. Enough that it's probably embarrassing for the boy who doesn't know the song! But I don't record myself. In cars. I am so happy that this happened. You are so cute.

ps what do you use to make your collages?

Katya said...

hilarious! cute snapshots too :)

Thanks Whitney! Oh how I love feeling bad-ass, even for a day :) Planners unite!

Katya said...

Your duty as a Canadian citizen is to visit the Falls. You won't be sorry ;)

PS. I thought we were already best friends :P

PPS. Photoshop!

Katya said...

Oh. Tango - that's an idea for a spontaneous night! ;)

Katya said...

Katya said...

Us Virgo's need to get out of our shells sometimes you know :)

Katya said...

Oh I totally have a girl crush on her. Not going to lie.

Katya said...

Me too! I'm girl crushing hard ;)

Katya said...

MINE TOO! How good it feels to let that out there ;)

Katya said...

Thanks and thanks! You always make me smile :)

Katya said...

A car duet? Count me in!

Katya said...

Three very important things. Especially the hashbrowns :)

Katya said...

I know what you mean, McDonald's is reserved for early morning drives only ;)

Katya said...

Definitely! Grab the boy and go somewhere for the day :) Throw all caution to the wind!

Katya said...

Let me know if you do! It's some of the best pub food I've ever had :)

Katya said...

He's a huge help to get me out of my shell. Otherwise, I'm just like you!

Katya said...

Haha. You crazy.
