Since writing about my never ending quest to organize my house isn't very interesting, I thought I would try Friend Makin' Monday.

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.

1. Well, I don't know if I've ever had a really bad vacation. My mom might say it was when we went camping in Arizona and it was freezing. But I had fun snuggled up to the cookstove, drinking hot chocolate. Good memories. Perhaps I could mention an incident at Natural Bridge, Virginia when I was 16. It was just a small portion of our family vacation. One more stop when I was ready to just go home. I found the place boring. So I took off my sandals and walked along the two foot wall that bordered a creek. In one spot there was a bush. I looked down so that I wouldn't trip and there, just an inch away from my big toe, was a snake. I screamed. Everyone heard. I screamed so loudly that I scared the snake. It swam quickly away in the creek. I heard one man say, "That's a Cotton Mouth!" That is definitely the worst thing that ever happened to me on vacation.

2. Five places that I would like to go on vacation would include (and not necessarily in this order):

  • Hawaii
  • Mexico
  • San Diego
  • Venice
  • Romania
For more Friend Makin' Monday, visit Jolanthe at No Ordinary Moments


  1. San Diego is a good one, but I am biased being that I live there lol! I had Hawaii on my list too!

  2. Hawaii and Venice are in my list too and I should add Mexico. Romania would be an interesting place to visit.

  3. Love all of these vacation lists!! Now as far as the snake.. yikes.. not a fan of snakes.. however, I like natural bridge.. might be since its in my state :-)

  4. Hawaii would definitely make my list and the others are good, too. If I'd had a cottonmouth by my toe I'd STILL be screaming!

  5. Wow, Romania would be a pretty cool place to go!

  6. Karen! Love your new digs. Doing a little sprucing up at my place, too. Wow, a vacation list... Any of the western states. England. Scotland. Hawaii. Maine.

    Right now, I'd just settle for a stress-free weekend! lol

  7. Nice - I want to go over Italy.
