M is for: Migas Tacos

So I have a confession to make.

I accidentally skipped the letter "M" recently on the blog (insert face palm emoji girl.)

I realize that even my most faithful readers probably did not notice. But I knew in my heart that it had been skipped, so here I am making good on my blog theme that I selected 7 years ago, not realizing the limitations it would sometimes present in sticking to my alphabet themed blog.

Anyways, I'm heading to Austin soon for my friend Megan's bachelorette party, so tacos have been on the brain lately. Austin is known especially for their affinity for breakfast tacos, and even more specifically, "migas" breakfast tacos. Migas literally means "crumbs" in Spanish, referring to the crumbled bits of tortilla chips mixed in with the eggs and other vegetables. And since I will be consuming copious amounts of these breakfast tacos, it is TOTALLY necessary to eat extra amounts of them before I even touch down in Texas, right? (Right?)

O is for: Oregon Coast & where to stop on Highway 101

When Justin and I began mapping out our route for our Great Northwest Roadtrip, he had two simple requests (well, technically a third that wasn’t as simple.) Two of them I will reveal in later posts, and the other was simply “to visit Goonie Beach.” For those of you who are familiar with the Oregon Coast, this means Cannon Beach in Astoria, Oregon.

Since we had planned to stay a night in Portland with my high school friend Dustin and his family, Astoria wasn’t exactly on the way to our next destination (the Redwoods), but it wasn’t too far out of the way either. And being that he only had a few specific bucket list items for the road trip, I felt it was worth the extra effort.

That also sparked the idea to take Highway 101 all the way down the Oregon coast. And while that would generally be a gorgeous idea, we spent most of the day driving in the rain. We still saw some beautiful sights and made a few stops along the way, so I figured I would still share them with you! Hopefully if you ever attempt it, you will have better weather and more time to explore (we did this all in one day, but I would suggest splitting it into at least two days.) Moving North to South, here’s where we stopped:
