I'm back from my little surprise, mid-week getaway! I had such a great time on the trip, I wish I was still there. The secret trip my boyfriend planned for me ended up being in Missoula, Montana! I absolutely love going anywhere in Montana, it's such a beautiful and peaceful state to visit. And of course, as promised, I took lots of random photos to show you guys our little adventure :)
It's pretty much ritual to stop at the 50,000 Silver Dollar Gift shop. I've been going there since I was a kid, back when it used to be 10,000 Silver Dollar.
I picked up some cool bracelets as always, and few other nick-nacks.
On day two of the trip, we pitched a tent in my boyfriend's friends' back yard. They had such a unique house, and I guess their house is a host for couch surfing as well. Which let's whoever is passing through to sleep on their couch for free instead of spending money on a hotel room. Pretty cool I think.
And they even have a pop machine that dispenses beer instead of pop!!
Here are some snap shots of their humble abode:
Relaxing out on their porch with the best summer ale I've had.
A great part about Missoula was that we could walk to pretty much all of our destinations! Eventually I'd love to live somewhere with that privilege.
I had some BOMB huckleberry ice cream here.
The best part of the trip was definitely when I stumbled upon this poster at a record shop. I didn't really know why we were taking this random road trip, but my boyfriend had secretly bought us tickets to see Youth Lagoon! I was so surprised and thrilled that he had planned this all for me :) I had the biggest smile on my face when I saw this sign and it all clicked.
I couldn't leave the record shop without buying a few vinyls for myself, one including the Beatles White Album!
And of course we had to go thrifting :)
What a trip what a trip! I won't ever forget it :) On the way back from Montana, we stopped in Idaho and did a little bit of river floating! It was a perfect way to end the trip and spend time relaxing under the sun.
What can I say....I'm a pretty lucky girl :)
