You Guys. It’s 5 am and I feel like a straight up zombie but it’s totally okay because at least I’m sitting here writing to you. Yesterday was the absolute worst, Monday-iest Monday of all Mondays. I went into work at 8, didn’t get home until 7:15 and basically laid in bed with half and eye open to watch Dancing with the Stars.
Speaking of…. who do you think is taking home the mirror ball this season?! My money is on Jordan and Lindsay!
Also… my work gave me a Fitbit yesterday and it’s sitting here yelling at me to GO GO GO and guys. I’m just so not about that life rn. I’ve taken a total of 7 steps this morning (it’s so far from my coffee maker to my chair guys). Ugh. I have a very long way to go to 10,000. (But also, I’m rocking in my chair and it thinks I’m walking. LOL)
Anyways, I’m starting my Tuesday off the best way I can. Drinking coffee, watching The Holiday (one of my absolute favorite movies) and blogging about Jackson Hole. And any day that I get to talk about Jackson Hole is instantly a good day.
If you’ve been around awhile, you know that we love Jackson Hole so much, we named our cat after the place. Jackson Hole was a huge trip for me. I had NEVER seen mountains before. Ever. And I had always been enchanted by the whole “stay in a cabin and wake up with your coffee staring at the mountains while it snows and you sit by the fireplace” thing. So when my parents said I could pick anywhere I wanted to go since we were celebrating my college graduation, I decided to pick the mountains.
So how did I end up on Jackson Hole, WY? I saw one photo of The Tetons and I was sold. I mean, how could I not want to go here???
Alright. Are we ready to see Part 1 of the TWO Part Jackson Hole Bucket List?! Get ready to enjoy some of the prettiest photos you’ll ever see! (I’m breaking my Bucket List based on how our trip went, so I don’t miss anything. So this list you’ll see the things we crossed off on on the first half of our trip, and next week, the things we did on the second half of our trip!)
Road Trip Out West Ride Across The Badlands Visit a Tourist Trap See Mount Rushmore See Mountains Visit the Last of the Wild West Take a Hike in the Mountains
We got to go on SO many hikes while we were Jackson. But this picture is from my very first hike in the mountains EVER. Such a perfect memory.
Visit Downtown Jackson Take a Scenic Drive Swim at the base of a Mountain Swim in a Hot Spring Go to a Rodeo
The first three days of our trip were filled with so many amazing things! But honestly… we saved the best for the second half 🙂 Come back next Tuesday to see what else we crossed off when I was in Jackson Hole.

Alright guys. I hope that this post wasn’t too all over the place. My coffee still hasn’t kicked in, and honestly, I can’t tell if I’ve written anything cohesive or not. HAHA Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! Please pray for me… we’re supposed to get thunderstorms today. Which means another day of the kids not being able to go outside. Which is never a good thing.
