FMM: Vacations!!!

20 Jul

It’s Monday and time for FMM {Friend Makin’ Mondays}, thought up by the darling Kasey from All That Is Good. And while Kasey is on an awesome vacation, she has asked Jolanthe from No Ordinary Moments to come up with today’s FMM theme. It’s a great one: Vacations!

Today task ~ VACATIONS!!

This task has two parts {numbered ever-so-nicely for you}. You can do either one or both ~ it’s up to you! 1. Tell us about the best {or worst} vacation that you’ve ever taken. 2. Tell us FIVE places/vacations that you would like to take at some point your life. It doesn’t have to be next year…maybe it’s the vacation of a lifetime or somewhere you just dream of going years from now. Well, I would say that my favorite vacation so far has been to Hawaii. Of course Jeff and I went for our anniversary last year — without the kids! So that one was wonderful, just the two of us, peaceful and very relaxing!The other one was also a vacation to Hawaii taken about 7 years ago. It was with my extended family: my dad arranged it and it ended up being the last family vacation we took before he got sick and was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. So it has very powerful, wonderful memories of spending time with him. He was such a vibrant, fun-loving, wonderful father.And finally, about four years ago we went on a vacation to Disneyland with Jeff’s extended family. We all stayed in the same hotel. It was so fun!


For the second part of the task: places that I would love to visit, it is so hard for me to come up with a list — there are so many places that I would love to visit.

  • Europe! I would love to go to France, see the Eiffel Tower and explore the french countryside. I think it would so fun to spend a month and paint the countryside.
  • Italy. I took Latin in high school and loved learning the history of that country. I also love reading book set in Roman times. So I would love to see all of the iconic Italian sites like the Colisium and the Pantheon.
  • Australia. It sounds so beautiful.
  • Fiji. The name just sounds so cool!
So go on over to No Ordinary Moments and join in the fun!
Also, I spent last week experimenting with resin jewelry and came up with a really fun project!
I will post about it tomorrow!

July Fun!

We’ve had a wonderful time hanging out with my sisters and their families this week. One day we got out of the heat at the local bowling alley. The kids had a blast!

They loved it the second game when the lights went off and the music started!
I hope you had a wonderful week!
