Greatest Vacations Ever

So I live from one vacation to the next.  This is how I operate.  My philosophy is that Life is what happens to you while you are on vacation.  My memories of my childhood involve the vacations I took.  Not the day to day.

So in essence, I am forming the lasting memories my kids will carry through with them to adult hood.

And it’s fun.

I enjoy the planning.  I enjoy the packing.  I enjoy the flight,drive or train ride.  I enjoy the WHOLE DAMN thing for the most part.

I am happiest when I know when my next vacation will be.

Right now, mama ain’t happy.

And to top it off.  Mama will be soloing whatever trip she takes with the babes this summer.  Because BabyDaddy has a new job and no vacation time.

So.  I am fishing for ideas.

If you have any thoughts I would appreciate it.  And just for fun I am listing the places I  have been (in no particular order of importance).

Because reliving a vacation is yet  another great reason to go on vacation.


The Bahamas – a cruise


The Mayan Riviera in Mexico (no pig flu then)

Rehoboth Beach

Assateague Island



Disney World

Majorca Spain – All time BEST BEST BEST vacation ever!  Happened to be my honeymoon…

And a whole lot of  “camping”.  Like here, here and here.  All of those places were fun in their own way.

I provided links to the places I stayed when possible.  Some places we rented a house.

Please send me some of your all time favorite places.  I need some inspiration.

And I need to live vicariously through others for a while.

And my link for Disney World is the truth a joke.  We actually had a fun time there.  But still…


The Joy of…sox? AKA All I need to know I learned at a blog party…

So on to the wonderful wonderfulness of the  blog party  I attended recently.  (my first ever)

I had so much fun!!! We all did.  Much food wine (and margaritas and whiskey) and fabulous conversation was enjoyed by all.  And I have never seen such competition to get a word in edge wise – fabulous!

Much like she mentioned, I too was unusually quiet that night but I sure enjoyed myself.

I had met only two of the people present before in real life and it didn’t matter one little bit.

I got to see her bewbies. (bra-clad thank you very much) during a heated, “my boobs are worse than yours” debate.

I learned that she is just as fabulous in real life as I suspected through her blog.

I learned a bit about bravery from her.

I go to meet her and her and they were fun and very sweet.

I learned that one of the ladies there has a husband who will only have sex with his socks on.  (hence my title – no link to protect the not so innocent – sorry!).

I learned about the desire to cheat and how many surgeries it takes to have FABULOUS boobs after a mastectomy from someone who has actually not done either.  ( no links here either – same deal)

I learned that she makes an AWESOME cake and I am sad because she also sells them at a store near me and I have no self control.  But boy will I enjoy the fall…

I learned that she has excellent taste in drivers.  (yes, I am an excellent driver.)

I learned that mozzarella cheese can taste like heaven if made by a man with his hands at the corner store.

And I learned that she is super fabulous wonderful and she has the cutest most adorable son in the world.  (second only to mine of course).

Huge amounts of thanks to everyone who planned and participated.

Can’t wait until the next one!
