Vacation on My Mind

Recently Husband has gotten a new schedule at work, and I’m loving it. He was working some pretty insane hours before, but now he’s home at a more decent time. I’m convinced that dinner tastes better when you can eat it before you’re just 30 minutes away from bedtime. However, when Husband told me about his new schedule, he also mentioned one word that made me giddy: vacation. We didn’t think that he’d be able to get the time off of work to go on a vacation. Now it looks like we might be able to sneak away for a few days this fall. And before the word “vacation” barely escaped his lips, I had already run to the computer, researching vacation spots and checking airline ticket prices. (Side note: Have you ever checked out Trip Advisor? I recently re-discovered their website, and I’m addicted to reading all the reviews that vacationers have posted.) The first night I was so excited that I couldn’t sleep. I’ve had a few days to get used to the idea now, but I still can’t help but smile every time I think about it. We’re still working out the details, and we haven’t booked anything yet. But we might soon, as my philosophy is, “Let’s make our plans before the military changes its mind!”

I have spent more hours than I would like to admit on Trip Advisor. We use it for every trip we take. It's the best for finding places to stay and I love it when people comment on the "extras" they do while on vacation. Seriously, we scored free $30.00 breakfast everyday we were at the marriott in Key West just because of a Trip Advisor suggestion.

ok, can you tell I really like Trip Advisor? Happy Vacation Planning!

There's not much in life that makes me happier than thinking about, planning, or going on a vacation. Do you know where y'all want to go? The hardest part for me is picking one spot out of all the lovely choices! Have fun planning! xoxo

I have a love/hate relationship with trip advisor. I've been on there after booking a hotel to see the ratings and reviews acting like it was a crack house. Yet when I got there it was like a 5 star joint. You just have to remember people love to complain about anything! Be wary of their hotel reviews!
