      Love Jamaica! That’s somewhere I’d like to visit again – the most relaxing vacation ever.

  3. Are you going anywhere for vacation this year? Have you already been on vacation? I have not. I want to take the kids on a cruise, however I want Kayden to turn 1 first. So I don’t know if that will happen this year or if it will be next year.

    Yes! We’re trying to go to the southwest, NM or AZ, and South America this year. May try to squeeze in a short girls trip too.

    My cell. I don’t have a tablet.

    Jewelry, but it’s usually something sorta cheap.

    Do you prefer laid back, relaxing trips, ones where you pack in as much activity as possible, or a combination of the two?
    Laid back. My husband and I both like to hike and learn about the place we’re visiting but in my heart of hearts, I like to sit by the beach with a book.

    How many pairs of shoes do you pack for a one week trip?
    Probably three or four – (flats, boots/sandals (depending on weather), dressy shoe, hiking/activity shoe)

    What was your favorite vacation?
    The one that gets here the fastest. lol…

    • I make a new list for each trip too! One for me, one for LG – and I pack it to make sure I don’t leave anything behind when we’re coming back. I get clowned mercilessly for this :)

      I’m all about the jewelry too. One of my faves is a ceramic bead necklace that I bought in China. I don’t wear it a lot because I’m afraid it’ll come apart, but it is one of my favorite souvenirs.

      • That is a GREAT idea. Much, much better than my current system, which mostly consists of checking to make sure I haven’t left anything and then rechecking obsessively again and again until someone drags me out of a door.

  5. Are you going anywhere for vacation this year? Have you already been on vacation? Yeah, shawty! Leaving tomorrow for my cruise. Also doing NY, NOLA and Orlando.

    Do you have a packing list that you use to help you plan your vacation wardrobe? No

    If your trip includes lots of walking, what type of shoes do you prefer? Comfy flip flops or sandals.

    If you travel internationally, do you take your tablet, your cellphone, or both? Both

    What type of souvenir do you usually purchase for yourself? Nothing. Not really into souvenirs

    Do you prefer laid back, relaxing trips, ones where you pack in as much activity as possible, or a combination of the two? Combo

    How many pairs of shoes do you pack for a one week trip? Five or Six

    What was your favorite vacation? The first year we rented the beach house. I wsa so happy ot be with my mom and my baby in paradise.

    • Enjoy your cruise!

      I’ve never been to NY – gotta make that happen soon. When will you be in NOLA? Not that I’m inviting myself down or anything…

  6. 1. This year, we are going to D.C. for Buddha’s spring break. We want to visit the White House and a few other sites. I’m LONG overdue for an adults’ only vacation but I have no idea when that would take place. Family trip will have to suffice.

    2. A packing list? What’s that? Lol. I have a toiletry bag that stays packed for traveling. I update that and then plan wardrobe pieces based on where I’m going and when. I count the days I’m gone and add 3 outfits to that. Done.

    3. If my trip includes lots of walking, I prefer comfortable shoes. Knowing me, I’d carry around an extra pair of shoes. Born is a good walking brand. You can never go wrong with a pair of tennis shoes. New Balance is my preferred brand.

    4. International travel is on my wish list of things to do.

    5. I don’t have a certain type of souvenir I purchase for myself. Now, I don’t buy many souvenirs for other people when I travel. It depends on where I go. If I like it, I buy it. I don’t necessarily need anything with the destination’s name on it. Mister collects shot glasses (that are NOT on display) so he’d be the one to make the touristy purchases.

    6. I prefer a combination of the two for a trip. Build in a day of relaxation and then do activities on the other days. Especially if it’s to somewhere I’ve never been. I’m trying to get my money’s worth! I’ll come home and have a vacation from my vacation, lol.

    7. I pack shoes based on outfits. If I’m flying, I base it on my luggage and whether I’m paying for my bag.

    8. My favorite vacation solo vacation was when I went to NYC (I got to fly a plane) and my favorite family vacation was to Gatlinburg, TN for a family reunion.

  7. Are you going anywhere for vacation this year? Have you already been on vacation?

    Do you have a packing list that you use to help you plan your vacation wardrobe?
    * Nope I don’t. I probably should get one though.

    If your trip includes lots of walking, what type of shoes do you prefer?

    What was your favorite vacation?
    * Hmm probably one of my Vegas trips

    • You’ve got a busy itinerary – have fun!

      My packing list really helps me – I weed out a lot of unnecessary stuff and it helps me plan around a central color or two. Next trip I’m packing blues and greens. Weird, I know :)

  8. 1)I don’t think I’m doing anything big this year. Just some day trips or a weekender.

    2) I don’t write anything down but I start lining up outfits in the guest room at least 2 weeks ahead.

    3) Sneakers or some comfy flats. I wore sandals on a long trek through Naples and trip on every single cobblestone in the street!

    4) I take my cell phone and can never use it. Well I could use it on a cruise once the ship was out to sea. I never take a laptop.

    5) I always plan what I’m going to purchase based on where I’m going. I always want art work and jewelry no matter where I go.

    6) A lot of activity, less relaxation. And that’s why I come back from vacations exhausted. LOL

    7) 3 or 4

    8) Cape Town South Africa by FAR!!! Next cruise stops in Mykonos Greece, and Turkey. I will be going back to all three!

    • I’m going to try to pick up a small piece of art next time I travel – my parents have done this and they’ve found some really great pieces. I’m looking forward to buying some fab earrings in Morocco.

  9. Are you going anywhere for vacation this year? Have you already been on vacation? Yes, we have designated income tax refund as mom and dad vacation cash. So, depending on the refund, we might just be going around the corner….or maybe to the South of France!
    Do you have a packing list that you use to help you plan your vacation wardrobe? I do normally write down what I’ll wear just to make sure I have everything that goes with it.
    If your trip includes lots of walking, what type of shoes do you prefer? tennis shoes
    If you travel internationally, do you take your tablet, your cellphone, or both? I can’t imagine not taking both. What will I do on the plane without my tablet?
    What type of souvenir do you usually purchase for yourself? Anytime we go somewhere we get a refrigerator magnet.
    Do you prefer laid back, relaxing trips, ones where you pack in as much activity as possible, or a combination of the two? Combo
    How many pairs of shoes do you pack for a one week trip? Depends
    What was your favorite vacation? Chicago with Aidan. Hands down.

    • Wait. Y’all get a refund?!?! We clearly need a new tax dude!

      Your trip inspired me to add Chicago to my list of places to visit – it looked like y’all had a ball.

  10. Are you going anywhere for vacation this year? Have you already been on vacation? We plan to but we need to figure out where. LOL! I commented on TIH’s blog the other day about it but we were planning for a cruise but the Carnival debacle scared me off. Mistah is still open. He says as long as we don’t use Carnival “we’ll be straight”. Sigh…….

    Do you have a packing list that you use to help you plan your vacation wardrobe? I usually have a mental list of what I would like to bring but a lot of the time, I just end up standing in the closet until I get it all figured out. My mama would shudder cause she is all about the lists!!!!

    If your trip includes lots of walking, what type of shoes do you prefer? An athletic shoe. Flats are cute but arch support is cuter IMO.

    If you travel internationally, do you take your tablet, your cellphone, or both?

    What type of souvenir do you usually purchase for yourself? Things I can use like t-shirts and refrigerator magnets. I’m not much on knickknacks to put on shelves. It just causes clutter and ends up being one more thing to dust.

    Do you prefer laid back, relaxing trips, ones where you pack in as much activity as possible, or a combination of the two? A combo.

    How many pairs of shoes do you pack for a one week trip? 3 to 4.

    What was your favorite vacation? I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE San Fan. I would go back every year if I could.

    • I’m with Mistah – as long as you don’t cruise Carnival and check the age of your ship, you should be good! But don’t hold me to that…

      I love a good list!

      Hope you get back to SF soon – great city!
