The Wandering Weekenders- 2017 A Year In Review

Hey y’all, my name is Ashley, and I’m your somewhat typical Type-A Accountant. I live in the great state of Texas with my husband, Chris, and our two beautiful twin girls Addison and Isabelle. My husband and I have always been huge dog people, and unfortunately we lost our sweet three legged fur baby to cancer in 2017. I’ve lived in Texas my whole life, which is probably where my addiction to Aggie Football and chips and salsa has come from.

Besides football and great Tex Mex, I also love traveling to new places and enjoying all of the sights, activities, and food that come with visiting somewhere new. My husband and I always joke that there are “doing” vacations and “relaxing” vacations, and if I had my choice, I would always pick a “doing” vacation. You only live once right?

The idea for this blog came to me when my husband earned Companion Pass Status with Southwest in 2014. Basically, when he buys a plane ticket, I can fly with him for free. As soon as I found out, I started planning the millions of trips that we could go on and all of the exciting places that we could see.

Like most everyone else, we don’t have the ability to travel all the time because we both have full time jobs, so we’re going to try to visit as many places and see as many things, sometimes in just a weekend. I know that it is impossible to see and do everything in such a short amount of time, but I’m hoping that this will give us the opportunity to experience as much as possible.

I hope that you enjoy the blog, and that it gives you some ideas for planning your next trip! Be sure to check out my travel page for a listing of all the places that we’ve visited with links to blog posts!
