• Babymoon Planning & Traveling Guide

    The term babymoon popped up within the last few years, and everybody knows I am down for any reason to travel, so we took full advantage of the new-found reason to take a vacation. This adventure is a little different though, I needed to plan for a big ol’ belly to be wandering around, feet that might be swollen (they were!) and the need for constant bathroom breaks. Planning for this trip was slightly more stressful than usual, but also a little less planned out because I have pregnancy brain and literally kept forgetting we were about to go abroad for 10 days. I did a lot of research before…

  • Disney World In 4 Days + Disney Vlog!

    I am about 5 trips behind, but I can’t help but dive into Disney World recaps first! Some people may think it is crazy to see all 4 parks in Disney World in 4 days…and I wouldn’t argue…but for us it was all the time we had and it was well worth it in the end. We left bright and early the day after Thanksgiving and took full advantage of the rest of the day in a park. I think at this point our adrenaline was on high and we could have went all day…as you will see, we did! For 4 days in a row! It’s obvious to want…

    Holland America Cruise Experience: The Drinks

    After highlighting all the delicious foods from our Holland America cruise, let’s get to the drinks! Holland America, like most cruises, now offers an all you can drink plan which starts around $50 per day. The catch is that you have to purchase the plan for everyday on your cruise, and for everyone in your room. For us that would have been $1100 on our 11 day cruise, plus tax. We were on a very port heavy schedule, so we decided to buy each drink instead of purchasing the plan, and I am so glad we did. The best thing about Holland America was the happy hours every.single.day. There are…

  • How To Make The Perfect Travel Itinerary

    Most of our trips are short weekend getaways, with a few week long trips and long weekends in the mix. Because we often only get to see 24-48 hours of a given city, and we may never be back again, I try to plan the travel itinerary as well as I can in each place. We have tried to have some trips where we mainly just relax and only have a few loose plans, and other trips where we planned things for the time we are there, in order to compare which style we liked better. In the end we liked the plans, who would have guessed?! It makes us…

    Packing For A Weekend Getaway

    This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ProtectYourEverything #CollectiveBias Traveling often means packing a repacking some of the same clothes constantly, and in tight spaces of my carry-on suitcase. Remembering everything I need to pack, and keeping everything looking new is where organization and Scotchgard™ Fabric & Upholstery Protector come in handy in every travel situation. As I pack for trips, I like to make sure they are protected while I am on-the-go. What if I spill my coffee jumping into a cab? My clothes need to still look new in tough situations, especially when we pack as light as…

  • New Orleans Neighborhoods and Transportation

    Before I started my research of New Orleans, I honestly thought it was Bourbon street, with pretty houses around it and then a waterfront park area. Then I started actually looking into it, searching for a New Orleans Map and realized that there are 6 different main neighborhood (from east to west): Bywater, Marigny, French Quarter, Warehouse District, Garden District and Uptown. The French Quarter is the most popular area where you will find St. Louis Cathedral, Jackson Square and Bourbon Street. According to some locals, Marigny and Bywater are both one in the same, except Frenchman Street is definitely in the Marigny. Uptown is where Magazine Street is, which…
