Friend Makin Monday - Vacations

Happy Monday!  I can honestly say that Daylight Savings Time did not bother me or anyone in my house in the slightest.  So I had to drive to work in the dark again.  The sun was barely making an appearance last week when I got here, so it's really not a big deal.  I know Randy likes it, tho!

Got a good workout Saturday at Zumba, we had a sub teacher and she did a lot of hiphop dance moves (jumping), where the usual teacher does a lot of Salsa & bellydancing (hips).  I could really feel it in my knees all weekend!

I also had an eye appointment - I'm so happy about it.  Last year I went to a new place (because they take Randy's insurance) and had the crappiest service ever.  The first thing the eye doc said was "oh, you're gonna be 40 this year - time to think about reading glasses!"  He hadn't even looked at my eyes, I was miffed!  All sorts of hassle with those peeps, so I went back to my old place and can't wait to get my new contacts.  

Time for FMM !

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules.

Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!


1. Where was the last place you went on vacation to?  Last summer we went up north to the Traverse City area for a couple days and drove down the west coast of Michigan.  Here are my posts about it.  It was a nice trip. 

2. Do you have any plans for a vacation this year?  Things are pretty up in the air right now. Normally we take the week before school starts to do something, but it's also going to depend on Miss Angela & her dance team.  They're going to Regionals in May, to see if they qualify for Nationals in July.   We will be spending Christmas in Arkansas with the Mother-in-law.

3. If money was no option, where would you dream vacation be?  I want to visit all 50 states.  I'd also like to see Australia, Europe, Asia, etc. 

4. What is your favorite vacation spot that you have visited?  Alaska.  I'd only known Randy for a couple weeks when he asked me to go.  He already planned to go alone, then he met me and I jumped at the opportunity.  It's funny that I have a picture of us - his first time on a horse - taken exactly 4 years to the day from our wedding day!

5. Have you ever had a staycation?  Sort of.

6. Are you a lie on the beach person or a go out and explore person?  I can only handle so long sitting on the beach before I die of boredom.  So I'd have to go explore.

7. When you fly do you have a favorite airline?   I honestly don't fly enough to have a preference.  Whatever Randy books us on!

8. Have you ever had a ‘vacation from hell’ ?  Nope, but I've been on 2 vacations TO Hell!  We went on a cruise and visited Hell in Grand Cayman, and Hell, MI is only about an hour away !

9. Have you ever had an airline lose your luggage?  Nope

10. Do you send postcards to friends and family when you go on vacation?  Yes.  Sometimes we get home before the card is delivered, but that's OK.  FYI - if you send a card from the Hell, MI post office, they singe the edges with a candle.  It's great!


  1. Stopping by from FMM's. I so jealous, I've always wanted to go to Alaska, I even tried to talk my mother into letting me to college there... Sometime hopefully in the future I'll talk a cruise there.

    1. I bet a cruise would be really nice! We did a glacier dinner cruise, but it was only a couple hours long.

      We went in July, so it was neat to have daylight the whole time we were there. I want to go back to visit Barrow - just to say I've been to the northernmost point of the US.

  2. LOL I love your part about going to Hell, and the postcards, I feel like I want to go visit there just for that


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!
