Fill in the Blank Friday

Time for my Friday link up with fabulous new mama Lauren at The Little Things We Do

1.   My favorite place I've ever traveled to is  our honeymoon to Fiji was definitely a trip of a lifetime. We've also loved all the cruises we've been on. 

2. Europe, South America, and Australia is  are somewhere I'd love to go someday.

3.  I pass the time on a plane (or bus, or car ride or train) by   reading or watching tv/movies. We usually fly Jet Blue that has tv's in all the headrests, if not we have our lap top or mini-dvd player. On our 10 hour flight to Fiji, I tried my best to get some sleep which helped pass the time. 

4.  My three must-haves when I travel are   something to read, something to watch, and earphones. Oh and my travel neck pillow that H laughs at me for! 

5.  My favorite travel companion is  my H of course! 

6.  The craziest thing that ever happened to me while traveling is  other than flight delays/cancellations nothing really crazy to report thankfully. However, my mom and I were in NYC back in the summer of 2005 when the terrorist attacks on the subways in London were happening and we couldn't understand why everytime we got down to the subways in Manhattan they were shutting down. We were only able to take one train that day, and took cabs and the bus the rest of the day. My dad was horrified that we were "gallivanting" around the city trying to ride the subway, but we had no idea until we got home that night.

7.  The most exotic food I've ever tried while traveling is nothing too exciting. I have a few food allergies, so I don't tend to branch out too much while traveling so I don't risk getting sick or having an allergic reaction. However, we did try Kava in Fiji.

8.  If I could live anywhere else, I'd live in  where we live now! Both of us always dreamed of living in Florida after growing up in Connecticut and our dreams finally came true a year and a half ago. No more complaining about the high cost of living and terrible weather. We couldn't be happier! :0)

9.  I have been to 33 
states in the U.S. My goal is to see all 50. I've gotten a lot of the "boring" ones out of the way by doing a cross country road trip a few years ago. 


  1. WOW 33 states?! That's amazing :)

    FL is definitely a nice place to live - only if you can live on the beach! :)

    Where was your favorite cruise to??

    I think you're a great blogger!! I'm not sure what to attribute to my blogging "success" if you want to call it that? I really don't. I'm just myself! I love your blog + have enjoyed getting to know you :)

    HUGS! Oh & happy Friday! YAY!

  2. Yeah, I've done a lot of road trips and have been blessed with the opportunity to travel a lot.. I grew up in New England, so many smaller states were within short driving distance. I grew up an hour from NYC and 2 hours from Boston, have traveled to DC, New Orleans, Vegas, Myrtle Beach, Los Angeles, Atlanta, been skiing in the Rockies, and even had to travel to Omaha for work. I love seeing new places and experiencing new things!

    Our favorite cruise so far was to the Southern Caribbean out of Puerto Rico. It stopped in Aruba, Curacao, Dominica, and St. Thomas. We took a 1/2 day champagne catamaran sail to St. John and spent the day on the beach there and snorkeling. Highly recommended! I have a link to my travels with my H at the top of the blog called "Our Travels". I have yet to document my travels before H came along. I need to get on that!

  3. Stopping by from Fill in the Blanks.... Fiji looks amazing!! Probably a great place to honeymoon! Cute blog, Im a new follower, so now you can have your giveaway!!

  4. Thanks Keri! Yes, it was amazing, we're still in disbelief when we talk about our trip there.

    Yay, I'll get the giveaway together. I'm excited! :0)
