Goodbye Portland, Hello Park City!

{original image source}
Happy Friday...to me!

That's right, I have the day off tomorrow because tonight Cameron and I are headed to Park City, Utah! I have never been before, so I'm looking forward to a long weekend full of skiing and relaxation. We are actually going with a group of alumni from U of M, so it should be a pretty fun few days!

To be honest, I am really ready for a little mini vacation. I feel like life has been weirdly hectic since we got back from Thailand, and I can't believe it's almost March! This week in particular has been full of ups and downs - while I've had some fun plans (including an awesome food crawl I'll be posting about soon!) it's also been kind of draining on the house hunting front. Looking to buy a home for the first time is somewhat daunting to begin with, and when you're in an ultra-competitive real estate market like Portland where houses consistently get multiple offers over asking price in one day, it only makes the process more overwhelming. Even though I know it's important to keep a clear head when making a big decision like this, it's tough not to get emotionally attached to things aka envisioning where you want your future Christmas tree to go...ha! It's hard not to feel frustrated when something doesn't work out, but I know that in the end, everything will work out like it's supposed to.

In the meantime, I'm excited for a long weekend in the mountains! I know we're planning on skiing tomorrow/Saturday, but I'm hoping we'll have some time to explore Park City as well while we're there. If you have any recommendations on cute places to check out, I'd love to hear them!

  2. Have fun in Park City! I went once in college and it was so much fun - it's such a cute little city! All we did was explore the main streets with the shops, but I loved it. And I hear ya on the house hunting thing, it's so hard not to get emotional about the whole process. It will work out in the end though :) Plus, you never know when "the right" house could come along :)

  3. Ooh I love Park City! Such a pretty place! Have so much fun :)

    Buying a house is listed as one of the top 5 stressors of life along with death, marriage and divorce. It's a big freaking deal, but so worth it. Keep your head up, the right situation will come along and then it'll feel like it's going so fast! Good luck!

  5. We are in the same boat as far as house hunting goes. My fiance and I are also trying to buy a place in Los Angeles! We were already outbid on two homes. We are getting good vibes from the next place we are going to look at on Monday. Good luck!

  11. So excited for March! Have fun in Park City - I loved it, though I'd only been there in the summer. I imagine it is so cute in the snow!
