Can you say Road Trip?!!!

What would you do if your husband and brother in law were so awesome that when you said you wanted to take a 4 1/2 day trip/road trip they just said, "ok, when?".

Well I know what I would do. I would pack my nicest clothes.
~The clothes that normally don't make it very far into the day because of the combination of snot and food that end up on them.

I would load up on Diet Pepsi and Snacks.

I would bring my fancy camera so that I could come home with pictures of a place I adore, and people I adore even more!

I would take my favorite music, and maybe an audio book or two.

And then I would tearfully say goodbye to my husband and children, and take off down the road avec ma soeur, singing at the top of our lungs!

I would have the road beneath our tires in no time, traveling with few breaks (no kids you know) in order to spend a precious 2 days with our friend/old roommate who is moving to the middle east with her husband 5 children.

I would eat a lot of food, laugh about old times and help out with the children since her hubby is already across the ocean.

That's what I would do, anyway.

If it were me.

Which it is.


See ya Tuesday.


  1. Yay for you! Enjoy your time and take lots of pictures.

    Sunday: 35 minutes late to Stake Conference. Enjoyed the speakers, kids did great! Home to enjoy the afternoon. Dinner was hamburgers, plain pasta, garlic mashed potatoes from a pouch, canned corn. Kids cleaned the downstairs with the bribe of cookies. Everyone took a bath and are almost going to bed.
