(I'm only listing places I've been, as I'll do a TTT for places I want to visit at a later installment)
1. Captiva Island, Florida
-This is my family's vacation destination of choice. We have been going to Sanibel since I was a little girl. Sanibel/Captiva is a real treasure. It's never packed full of people, it has quaint little restaurants and shops, and you can find thousands of beautiful shells while you're there. We're going this summer with my parents and my brother's family is flying out from New Mexico too. We can't wait!
2. Albuquerque, New Mexico
-Speaking of New Mexico, that's another place I'd rather be. We drove, yes drove, from Georgia to New Mexico in December '07 for my brother's wedding. We had so much fun- the road trip was even great. Unfortunately it was bitter cold (18 F) and we didn't get to do as many outdoor things as we would have liked.
3. On a cruise
-My favorite thing- going on a cruise. I've been on two. The first one was with my Sisterchicks for our joint 30th birthday celebration. We went on a 3 day Carnival cruise to the Bahamas and had the time of our lives. Last September, I took Dave on a cruise for his 30th birthday! We went on a Carnival cruise too, but ours was 7 days (I think). It was a tad bit too much time at sea, but other than that, it was great! Next, I'd love to try a Disney Cruise- they're just too expensive!
4. Disney World
-Speaking of Disney, I'd love to be at Disney World. I just posted about the great deal for Aug-Oct- free dining plan. Oh how I want to book that trip- but Dave Ramsey won't let me since we already have a big trip planned to Captiva in June. There is nothing better than Disney.
5. New York City
-My mom grew up in Staten Island and moved to the city after high school. I haven't been since I was 12 and I desperately want to go. It's in my blood, what can I say?
6. The Pocanos-
My dear uncles live in the Pocanos and I grew up visiting them. I want my kids to do the same, but we've never had a chance.
Here's a pic of me hiding from their goose.
7. West Palm Beach
-My bff Lesley lives there. What more can I say? Bailey and I plan a little girls trip down there again this summer. I can't wait to see my little Giovanni!
-This is where Dave is from and although I've been out a handful of times, I'd like to really explore California- not just the Sacramento area. I'd love to go further south, especially since one of my best work friends moved there last year!
9. Blue Ridge Mountains
-I love spending a romantic weekend in Helen, Ga and the Blue Ridge Mountains in a little cabin in the woods. Good stuff.
10. Anywhere with my Sisterchicks
