dreaming of vacation...





I have tried to think of something to post about, but quite honestly, this is all that I can think about. Our first family vacation. As of today, I have 1 month, 3 weeks and 6 days until I can use my lovely little passport. Which by the way, I have to say, my photo was awesome. Why can't my licence be that good?

Since it's starting to be quite chilly out here in Indiana, my thoughts are now becoming quite focused on the warmth of mexican sand in January. Ah yes, it will be lovely. I have been addicted to the website of the resort and have even noticed that they now have a 24 hour webcam over the pools. I watched others swim at dusk last night, secretly wishing I was there now.

Until then, I'll try to keep warm knowing that our vacation is right around the corner. But of course, that just makes me freak out typing that since I have no clothes to pack. What's new? I never know what to pack or wear.

Where has your best vacation been to?

* So far, mine has been to Las Vegas since that's the only place I've really been as an adult. After that? Washingtin D.C. ( I loved it)

So, on this chilly morning, dream with me, where would you go?


* For myself, I can't wait to see Hawaii, then Europe and a cruise around Greece would be nice.

Dominican Republic three years ago. We went in January for a wedding to an all-inclusive resort. Bars in the pools, food whenever you wanted, it was a paradise. We didn't want to leave... What to pack for mexico? Bathing suit and a toothbrush.

My husband and I went to the Rivera Maya in Mexico a fews years back. We did not have a honeymoon when we got married because of money, kids, schools and all kinds of other crap. So, for our 4th anniversary we went to Mexico, by ourselves. It was like a little slice of heaven.

The honeymoon, 12 years ago. We went to Scotland for a week and travelled the entire perimeter of the country. Never stayed in the same town more than 1 night. Tried Scottish food and liked it until I learned what was in it. Enjoyed high tea. Golfed a few times. Met some neat people. Everyone was friendly to the newlyweds! Had a wonderful vacation with the hubby! Next favorite trip was Sonoma Valley (again, with hubby and no kids) but also had a blast at Disney with the children this spring when we celebrated the end of Mommy's (1st) cancer treatment. We'll have to go somewhere special this time, to celebrate the end of the 2nd and last! Katie

How exciting!!!

I think our best trip was our most recent. We drove down to Florida, and then all over the South. It was so beautiful, and so much fun. :o)

It sounds like fun. But I don't fly.

Our favorite place to go on vacation is the adirondacks! We love it there.

I love traveling, so it's hard to pick a fave...but I've been to Germany twice and absolutely loved it!

Hmm, our honeymoon was nice - we took a cruise around the Western Caribbean. Most recently we went to Honolulu, Hawaii - that was awesome too. I went to England as a young girl, and would love to go back! Mexico in January is going to be very nice!

oh...I love vacations so much. As long as there is warmth, a good time is to be had.

We went to Barbados, a cruise (to Mexico), to Florida and the Outer Banks. All of which I would go back in a heartbeat.

You lucky lucky lucky girl. I haven't been to a sunny tropical place. =( I guess Florida was fun and I had a blast in NYC. I'd love to go to Barbados or Cabo one day soon!!

The best vacation our family ever took was on the Disney Cruise. Ooooh, I'm dreaming of those Bahamian sands and seas! It was beautiful, awesome, and I wish I were there.
I have no vacation to look forward to, but there's always IKEA.

My favorite vacation was this past July in Destin Florida with my sister. I layed by the pool, then the beach which was a little walk from the pool. It was the most relaxing time ever. We walked at sunset along the shore.
Another favorite vacations was with my kids years ago to Sea World in Ohio. We enjoyed the ski shows and just being happy as a family. I know you can't wait...I am so happy for you. Can't wait to see pictures.

so far, my favorite vacation (as someone else posted) Riviera Maya in MX. I think it was so great because it was just us adults, the pool and all the drinks I could ask for. Loved it.

I've been lucky in that I've had a lot of fun vacations. I'll be cruising with my sis in the South Caribbean in about two month's time. Whoohoo!
