Boise trip

Back in October (my goodness am I far behind!) I went with my friend Stephine, to Boise to visit Becky. We had such a fun weekend-eating a lot, and just hanging out together relaxing. Becky found that there was a "Scarecrow stroll" that weekend at the Boise Botanical Gardens, so we decided to check it out. I'm so glad we did, because the plants and trees were beautiful with fall colors and the scarecrows were a fun addition! Plus there was a great view from there.

 We also had one other big adventure. For a long time Becky and I have talked about getting matching tattoos. We almost did it in Mexico, then decided not to. We both thought we'd get shamrocks to mark our Irish heritage, it would be a different but cool matching tattoo and I was hoping it'd bring me some much needed luck as well! So we headed to a random tattoo parlor in Boise. Steph decided she wanted one too. She went first so she wouldn't chicken out!

 She chilled as soon as he started, it wasn't nearly as bad as she'd imagined!

 Next it was Becky's turn. Our shamrocks were the exact same shape, but we had different artists so they are in slightly different spots and have different coloration.

 All done!!
 My turn!
 All done!
 So after all that, Steph decided she wanted a SECOND one! In the same day!

Thanks again Becky & Steph for an awesome weekend. It was so much fun and I hope we get to do it sooner than later! xoxo!
