Needless to say, it’s been a while. My first few weeks here were stupid busy and, obviously, I kind of missed a few weekly blog posts. But I did still keep up with my daily Instagram posts, so there’s that!
My friends Janee and Sarah came to visit me the last weekend of March/beginning of April. We hung out in Baltimore for two nights, and explored some areas of town I had yet to venture out to — Fells Point, Inner Harbor and the National Aquarium, and Canton. We had planned to go to Philadelphia for a day, but the person we had booked our housing with turned out to most likely be a scam, so we just decided to stay in Baltimore for the day instead. I think this worked out best for us, as driving to Philadelphia would have ended up with too much time driving and not enough time actually exploring.

Seriously this past week has been hectic. Packing, driving, moving, staying in sketchy hotels, and a whoooole slew of crazy once I actually got to Baltimore.
I’m too exhausted to post anything substantial but here’s all the photos I posted over the past week. Hopefully next week I can entertain you guys more.
Chillin like a Nashvillain 😎
Happy birthday to one of my best friends @angiemclarke 🎈 thanks for always being down to adventure with me, from tent rocks in New Mexico to waterfalls in Iceland and everywhere in between ❤️
First stop on the road trip to my next travel nurse assignment in Baltimore! ❤️
Well I wish *I* was this comfy and relaxed during our 10/11 hour road trip today 😒
First night in my new city has been an ADVENTURE to say the least. Involving unanswered phone calls, one way streets at night, a sketchy motel, and the kindness of one amazing stranger nurse opening her home up to me and Sunny for the night. Long story short — I made it!
Home sweet Maryland home 🏡 #maddieinbmore
Traditional first day of my travel assignment pic featuring Sunny strategically hiding my awful ID picture 😉 First day of contract #3 dunzooooo
As cliché as it is, time really moves SO fast the older you get. I can’t believe we’re already nine weeks into 2017, it’s about to be March, and I’ll be starting my THIRD travel nurse contract in just two weeks!
So this past week, Aaron and I were supposed to be in Puerto Rico, but cancelled because of how sick he was feeling. I still enjoyed having time off with Aaron to just hang out at home all week, since most of the year he has maybe a weekend off here and there, and we still managed to get out and about during the week — like on a quick hike to Enchanted Rock!
We may not have seen the Northern Lights when we were in Iceland, but we still got to see some pretty amazing sunrises/sunsets/the sky just looked like this all day, basically. 🇮🇸
Aaron surprisingly was feeling good enough to suggest getting waffles this morning, so waffles were got. Also got: strawberry lemonade.
Adventures with Sunny yesterday ☀️ 🐾
Taught Emma the fine art of dandelion wishes today 🌼
That one time Aaron was feeling sick and ended up on the floor after we got home (still unsure why) and puppers went to cuddle up with him ☺️
“Babe, you drive for our date night so I can take selfies” 🌟🌟🌟
I had much bigger plans for this Monday. Aaron and I have had a flight booked to the Caribbean for months. Unfortunately, Aaron started feeling sick on Saturday, and he hasn’t gotten much better. We’re pretty sure he has the flu. He feels (and looks) like shit. I asked him this morning if he wanted to cancel our trip, since he’s been miserable all weekend and hasn’t been able to be comfortable for, like, more than an hour. Long story short, we are not on a flight to the Caribbean, Aaron has been drugged up beyond belief (in a good way) and is now laying in bed with the pup, and I’m out here binge watching That 70s Show and working on my blog.
