5 Ways to Fun Outdoor Adventurers

Happy Friday! September is here, and Summer will be soon coming to a close, but there is still time for fun outdoor adventurers. And what's more fun than having fun new sunnies while on said adventurers.

Today I wanted to share some fun new sunnies and 5 different fun outdoor adventurers to wear them.

I recently got to try 5 new shades from Warby Parker through their Home Try-On Program. More on that here in a minute. First let's take a look at what sunnies I tried out and how I loved wearing them...

1. At the pool. Although we did have Fall-like temps last week, we are back in the mid-80's this week and looking to stay there through most of next week. So there are still some more pool days ahead. Plus we go on vacation exactly 2 weeks from today, so my Summer will hopefully continue on through most of Sept if we are lucky!

2. Jeep adventurers. We love taking the Jeep out for many different adventurers. Just take the top off, drive through some country roads, and you never know what fun lies ahead. Jeep hair included at no extra charge! #jeephairdontcare

3. Cocktails on the patio. Happy hour is my favorite hour and I love having cocktails out on a nice patio, or our back deck to enjoy the sunshine. It helps when you have a handsome husband who used to bartend making you yummy cocktails.

4. A day at the lake is also a lot of fun. Whether you enjoy some time out on a boat, or just a picnic by the shore, lake time is good for the soul.

5. Tailgating. It's about that time. Time for football and fun. Whether you are cheering on your team in the stands, or celebrating at a tailgate, sunnies that match your game day outfit are definitely a necessary accessory!

The Home Try-On Program is the perfect way to find the best sunnies to fit your style. You can choose 5 styles and have them shipped to you free of charge to try out for 5 days. You then just seal up the box, place the pre-paid shipping label back on the box, and drop off at your local post-office. There is no obligation to purchase, but if you love one or more of the pairs you try on, you can then go to their website and purchase a brand new pair for yourself. It's that easy and a great way to try them out before committing to purchasing a pair. And it's a lot of fun to try out a bunch of different styles. BTW: anyone can use the Home Try-On Program free of charge, whether you are a blogger or not, so try it out and maybe you will find your perfect sunnies for fun outdoor adventurers.

Ok, so need your advice, which ones do you like best? I like them all and can't make up my mind which ones I need, so please share your favorites :)

**I was not compensated for this post, I got to try out the free Home Try-On Program just like you can :)

Linking up with April for 5 on Friday.

#TBT: El Yunque Rainforest in Puerto Rico

Hey there! I have the perfect post today for Throwback Thursday. Remember about 9 months ago when we went to Puerto Rico. Well there were a few more posts I had planned and never got around to. One of the things I've been wanting to share is our tour of the rainforest. I took a ton of pictures, and tried my hardest to edit them down, but there were just so many fun things I wanted to share. So be prepared for a photo overload, but I promise it will be interesting.

We reserved our tour though our hotel, and they picked us up at 8 am in front of the hotel lobby. We then took a small shuttle bus, which did pick up a few other passengers at other hotels in the area, to the rain forest. Our first stop was at the El Yunque National Rainforest visitor center. We watched a short video about the rain forest, and had a chance to browse some booths with local vendors. We then jumped back on the shuttle bus to begin our adventure.

The shuttle bus took us up into the rain forest, and we stopped a few times for photo opportunities.

We then stopped at the Yokahu Observation Tower.

We walked up a bunch of stairs to the top of the tower for some amazing views.

You can see the beach/ocean in the very far distance.

Here is the view of the mountains from the other side of the tower.

We then continued our journey to another stop that had a 1/2 mile hike to the waterfalls.

I just loved this gigantic leaf I found along our hike.

The waterfall was beautiful!

At the base of the waterfall you could jump in and take a quick swim, although it was full of people. The couple in the picture above was with our group of friends that was in Puerto Rico for our friend's wedding. The guy was actually the roommate of the groom.

Throughout our hike we also saw a bunch of little critters including some cute little lizards and snails.

We also stopped off to look at the largest tree in the rainforest. Again with our friends from our group.

It was a great tour and we both highly recommend if you are ever in Puerto Rico.

I may have one more post to share about Puerto Rico, and then I'll hopefully be sharing our next trip that we leave for in almost 2 weeks! Can't wait!

PS: You can find our other posts about Puerto Rico here, and our other travels here.
