Today I bring you Amber, from Life As We Know It. If you haven't been to see her yet, you need to. The lady is beautiful - plus she roots for LSU!
I love me some Mrs. Potts! She is one of the sweetest, most genuine bloggers I know and she never fails to put a smile on my face. So when she asked me to do a guest post for her I was beyond excited. Then I freaked out because I had no clue what to talk about. Then I went back to being excited because I knew I could count on her to give me some fabulous topic ideas. And fabulous ideas she gave!
Some of her suggestions included a favorite part or memory from my wedding or honeymoon, a favorite vacation, and what we did for our first anniversary. I started to go with one of those but then realized that many of you have no clue who I am and may or may not care what I did for my wedding, honeymoon or first anniversary!
So instead, I decided to keep the travel theme and put a little spin on it.
My husband and I are currently trying to plan our next vacation, which will take place this December. And by currently, I really mean we’ve been trying to decide where we want to go since our vacation LAST December. We knew we wanted to go to Seattle for our first anniversary in July but for whatever reason we CANNOT settle on a place for December.
After going around and around in circles, we’ve managed to narrow it down to three choices. At least until we decide to change our minds again.
We’ve visited each place before and enjoyed them so much we’d like to go back. Our top contenders, in no particular order, are:
This one is appealing partly because we feel like we’d be able to divide our time between relaxing/not doing much and sightseeing/being active. We’d stay for about a week and think we could see and do what we want in a few days and then have the rest of the time to, well… rest.
I’m pretty sure there’s no need for me to explain the appeal of this destination. My husband actually proposed in
Again, the appeal is obvious. A drawback is that “Tropical Paradise” could mean any number of destinations. Somewhere in the Caribbean, Bahamas, Hawaii… If we decide to go tropical, we’d still have a lot of decision making ahead of us. Another drawback is that we went to
So, my new (and maybe some old) friends, where should we go?
If you had to pick one of these three places, which would you pick?
If you weren’t held to these three choices and could go anywhere in the US, where would you go?
For your help with this decision (if you do help, a.k.a. comment), I’m going to randomly pick one of you to send a little something to! It will most likely be a gift card to Target or Starbucks or somewhere else I can get to easily because I’m crazy busy and this would be easiest for right now. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I’ll pick a winner on Friday! Easy “money,” right? If you don’t have a blog where I can reach you if you win, leave your email address in the comment or email me at Ber611 at aol dot com with your email.
Thanks for playing along with the random girl on Mrs. Potts’ blog!
And thank you, Mrs. Potts, for having me!
For what its worth, I'd pick San Diego!! And for all of you out there commenting today & sharing your love, I'm adding a little something special to Amber's Oh So Generous Giveaway!
