Road Trip: Arizona/New Mexico

The best time is when being spontaneous comes over you and empowers you to do the most random/amazing things and in this case it empowered me to take a trip to New Mexico! A few of my friends and I took a surprise road trip... final stop New Mexico we rented an SUV, rented a hotel in Albuquerque and stayed in the small city for about 2 days. 15 hours later we arrived at hotel suite. The best way to travel on a road trip is with good people, the best of music, practical jokes in mind and positivity. I say practical jokes because laughter makes the time go by faster and you need faster time when you're in an SUV with 5 people for 15 hours straight.

Day 1: day one was mostly spent inside the car as I said before we drove for 15 hours to get to New Mexico... Gasp! Once we settled into our hotel room we mustard up so energy and headed into town. I have to say Nob Hill in Albuquerque is one of the cutest towns I have ever visited. Reminded me of SF but with a little more Mexican feel to it. Stop into a Buffalo Exchange just before they closed, bought a couple hats a looked through tons of vintage at amazing prices.

Day 2: We woke up at ummmmm.... 5:30am got dressed ran downstairs for our complimentary breakfast at then we hit the road to Roswell, New Mexico. After a 3 hour drive we finally got to the town that was built after the 1947 UFO crash. What can I say about this town other than... I was an automatic awe about it. Everything was driven by Aliens. The McDonald's was shaped as a UFO, the street lamps had the shaped eyes of an Alien, Alien figures everywhere, boutiques selling nothing but Alien artifact ahhhh! It was so much fun!

Day 3: it was time to go back home but before home we made a last minute decision to head up to the Grand Canyon. Now the Grand Canyon is unexplainable, you just have to make a trip there and take it as your own.

I had the most #smashingbirthday ever!!!
