Honeymoon in Numbers

I like lists, so...here's one!

4,630 miles driven round-trip

1,076 pictures taken

112 degrees - hottest it got, according to car thermometer

80 hours in the car (this includes all the traffic...ugh)


49 degrees - coldest it got, according to car thermometer

20 French macarons consumed (between the two of us)


16 major cities driven through

14 episodes of "This American Life" listened to

12 days, total

11 cupcakes consumed (by both of us)



11 states driven through

9 inches of hair cut off


8 games of skeeball played by me


7 fish tacos consumed by Pete


7 different hotels

5 rainbows seen (although only a few are kind of captured by camera)

4.7 miles walked in one day in San Francisco

4 ice-cream visits (Serendipity, Ben & Jerry's, Bi-Rite Creamery, Ciao Bella)


$3.59 the highest we paid for gas

3 cars that were farther away from home than we were - Maine, North Carolina, Tennessee

3 State/National Parks visited - Grand Canyon, Big Sur, Muir Woods (and countless Ewok jokes made at Muir Woods)


3 beaches visited - Santa Monica, Venice, and Carmel

3 In-N-Out visits made


2 sunsets intentionally seen

2 drives across the Golden Gate Bridge


2 days of sunburn for me


2 museums visited

1 sword purchased from Chinatown


1 drive-in movie attended (Inception)


1 mind-blowing meal at Chow


0 injuries - minus the time that I was looking at my phone while Pete was driving too fast on twisty roads out of Muir Woods and I got carsick

0 tickets (car/parking)



You guys, we had such an amazing time. Just checking in - Ryan, our wedding photographer - posted a few pictures from our big day here. But now, Pete and I are going to play Seinfeld Scene-It? (we registered for it...that's right. We registered at Target almost specifically for board games. I love our friends and families) and eat some greasy Chinese food. We came home a few days early from our trip and decided that even though we're home, responsibility will be avoiding us until we were SUPPOSED to get home.

But. I shall return with wedding and honeymoon photos and stories and more!
