Where to eat and drink in Key West

where to eat and drink in key west

From the moment my husband and I arrived in Key West, we felt like we were in a different country.  The culture is so diverse, the air is extremely humid and hot, and everyone there is from somewhere else.   We wanted a casual vacation where we could walk around with a drink in our hand with no worries.  This was it.  We also wanted to pick a place that our kids wouldn’t necessarily miss.  We hit the mark there,...

5 Things you Must Do in Big Sky Montana

5 things you must do in big sky montana

Chances are you have your family vacations planned for the summer.  But, if Big Sky is on your list, here’s 5 things you must do!  1. Zip Line! Okay, I was so scared to do this and I am so glad we did.  I was mostly nervous for my beautiful children.  Being strapped to a zip line and flying over a raging river.  But, these guys know what their doing.  I mean if you’re gonna zip line, do it in a...

Cabo

Cabo

Last year my husband and I got a big group together and went to Cabo.  It was somewhere I’d always wanted to go, so like most places, if we’re going, we’re gonna do it right!  As usual, I did a ton of research and planning for this trip.  Next time we go back, I’d probably go to all the same places!  And this is more of a ceviche and nice cocktail vacation, not the booze cruise type you would experience in other places...

Yellowstone: Where to Stay and What to See

Yellowstone: Where to stay and what to see

Hi Friends!  I’ve been excited for a long time to share this trip with you.  We went to Yellowstone last summer and it was absolutely the best family trip ever.  No iPads, no complaining.  It was a dream spend-quality-time-with-the-family vacation.  But, it’s a big place, so I’ve highlighted where you should stay and what to see in the park. We met with friends who went to Yellowstone the summer before and they gave us some great tips.  But, the best two...

Grand Teton National Park: 5 Things You Must Do

Follow Me! If you’re in the Jackson Hole area, you absolutely must go into the Grand Teton National Park.  Our family trip here included some awesome hiking, amazing views and taking in the great outdoors.  This was part of our Yellowstone trip extravaganza we took last summer. Our kids got to really hike for the first time, being that we live in a desert there’s not much hiking around our part of the world. We also saw some fantastic wildlife.  A...

Hot Spots in Jackson Hole

Hot Spots in Jackson Hole

Follow Me! Jackson Hole was part of a beautiful vacation we took as a family last summer, which also included Yellowstone and Big Sky Montana.  Of the three, Jackson Hole was our favorite and we will most definitely be going back.  That’s why we created the hot spots of Jackson Hole.  One place you have to experience. We had dinner with some great friends who took this exact vacation the year before. They said it was the best family vacation they...

Napa

Follow Me! I’m normally a planner when it comes to our trips, but with Napa I was super overwhelmed and shut down!  I was also really worried having a low tolerance that I was gonna pull a Sideways and fall off the stool at a tasting.  Too much vino.  EEEK! It is not like that at all.  We had a lovely time and definitely learned a lot about wine and wine tastings. My husband and I went to Napa last October as...

How to pack like a pro

Follow Me! I don’t think there’s such thing as professional packing. But, I know there’s suitcases out there that look like ticks about to pop.  You know who you are!  I can imagine those suitcases explode after being unzipped with a bunch of wrinkled clothes and spilled shampoo. Stop it! First of all, if you can, get a hardshell suitcase.  Those things are great.  They come in all price ranges.  We have Rimowas–they’re pricey but have a lifetime warranty. The second...
