Sitting on the side of 23rd street in our vintage VW bus turned dining table, we couldn’t be any happier, or any more ready, to sink our teeth into that incredible masterpiece of a pizza! But before we go there, because we will most likely never return from the land of ooey gooey cheesy goodness, we have […]

Partially because we’re crazy, but mostly because it’s something we crave. For the past year Drew and I have been itching for a geographical challenge. Luckily our jobs and careers have worked out so that we were able to dissolve old projects and ignite new ones that will thrive with us being location independent. There are so many […]

Brimming with sunsets, happy hours, cats and key lime pies, Key West was the perfect place to kickoff our 9 month cross country road trip! With 5 days to spend on this “salty piece of land,” we made sure to live every moment in a way that would make even Jimmy Buffet proud. 1.) First up on our list, we […]

After riding along “Old Seven,” (post here) we continued our bike trip on the Overseas Heritage Trail, which extends a total of 103 miles, crossing 37 of The Key’s 42 scenic bridges. On our ride we passed some of the infamously gnarly looking Marathon iguanas and a lineup of Porky’s plump little piglets (below)! Not sure we […]

Morning 1 of our trip we awoke to the most beautiful sparkling waters and clear blue sky. We were in Marathon Key, the 10-mile-long island community conveniently situated in the middle of the island chain, and more notably, home of the famous 7-Mile Bridge. With 42 bridges connecting the islands of The Keys, the 7-Mile Bridge […]

 When we think of Florida we think home, beach, LaSpada’s and more beach. But when it comes to finding new things to do and places to see, our minds generally blank here, SO we decided to do some digging and uncover South Florida’s hidden gems. (Can you spot our lizard friend sliding down one of the curly-Q’s below?) […]

Running Our First Marathon and How it Strengthened Us: Mind, Body and Soul

There I go, about to finish the longest 4 and a half hours of my life. Amazement, exhaustion, desperation, and gratitude are some of the feelings that flood my heart in these final moments. I have never felt so strong and so weak at the same time… not since the early days of my recovery at least. […]

Camping in the Incredible White Sands National Monument


It’s crazy to think that it has been almost a month since we visited White Sands National Monument in New Mexico… and we still can’t believe that a place like this exists… in the middle of the desert! We awoke before the sun that morning, grabbed a cup of joe to go and began our 10 hour journey from […]

Happy 2015 everyone!! Here’s to a year of endless possibilities, divine guidance, superhuman strength, and as always, ADVENTURE! Last night as we watched the fireworks glitter down onto the waves, we sat on the beach and reflected on what our New Year’s intention was going to be. Instead of choosing something to give up, we love the tradition of adding something deeply beneficial and […]

With twinkling lights, Sheila’s freshly baked cookies, friends and family all around, we couldn’t think of a better time to celebrate our Engagement. Everyone did such a wonderful job pitching in, guests made delicious dishes, while dad and Drew hung the lights, mom made the awesome “Welcome Sign” and my sweet cousin arranged the decorations and flowers. Everyone’s […]

Wait… what does that mean?? While we were extremely stoked to have received this honor, at the same time we had no idea what it was! Thankfully, our new blogging friends over at Nerd Nomads, who nominated us, also explained what exactly this award meant. The Liebster Award has been around for several decades now […]

How did we make it to SoCal in the first place?


Way back in 2011, before Mr and Mrs Adventure, there was still Mr and Mrs Adventure… we just didn’t know it yet! Bright eyed and bushy tailed, we graduated from The University of Florida, and after living in the college bubble for 5 years, we were ready for a real adventure. After contemplating a few different ideas for places to […]

Have you ever had a vision that was greater than your reality? ( I do hope that everyone can say “Yes!” to this question at some point in their life.) Well, not too long ago, Drew and I were both without jobs and searching for a deeper purpose in one of the most extravagantly creative cities […]

In terms of frequently asked questions from our readers, this one always seems to be at the top of the list. In between all of the bits and bobs, the odd and awesome destinations,  wild adventures, moments of unknown next steps and inevitable mis-steps, we always seem to come away with a smile on our […]
