Vacationing With The Blended Blog

It’s JULY!!!! Can you even believe it?! The girlies over at The Blended Blog have put together a vacation edition of their monthly prompts and that’s just great for me because in a little less than 3 weeks, I will be in my happy place at the beach. WOOHOO!!! I CAN.NOT.WAIT!

1. Will you go on a a summer vacation this year?
YES! We are going to Orange Beach, Alabama. We started going there several years ago and just love it. The sand is beautiful and white and the water is as close to Caribbean blue as you can get without being there. Orange Beach is on the Gulf of Mexico, so it’s the perfect place to vacation without having to pull out your passport.
2. Do nothing but relax or a pack it all in vacation?
We are all about relaxing {and eating} on vacation. I like to get up and exercise before hitting the pool (yes, I prefer to lay by the pool but be able to look at the ocean). We spend the day out in the sun, come in, clean up and head out to dinner usually followed by ice cream, shopping, mini-golf or a combo of all.
3. What month do you like to vacation?
I like to vacation in July whenever possible. I feel like it’s the best of everything. Summer is in full swing, but when you get home there’s still more summer to enjoy.
4. Cruise: YES or NO?
We’ve never cruised before. Kent loves the idea of food 24/7 and I’m terrified by that same thought. LOL 
I’m not opposed to giving it a try though.
5. Favorite vacation tradition?
I think mini-golf is one thing we’ve always done on vacation and that makes it my favorite tradition.
6. Most memorable vacation? 
Oh WOW! We’ve made so many vacation memories that it’s hard to say. For a non-beach memory, it would definitely be Disney when the kids were little.
7. Pack light or Pack it all?
I like to pack it all, but since we fly that means I have to have some restraint. I think the older I get, the less high maintenance I become. I know, I know, I can’t believe I just said that either. HA!
8. Hotel, Condo or House? 
When the kids were younger we’d get a hotel efficiency with a small kitchen. We like to eat/graze during th day and then go out for dinner. Now we usually get a condo, especially since these days the kids have along a special friend. wink, wink.
9. Favorite thing(s) to eat on vacation? 
Always seafood and of course no vacation is complete without all the ice cream and maybe a donut or two.
10. Warm or Cold Destinations.
Definitely warm. I am a warm weather girl through and through.
So tell me what your family likes to do on vacation. Do you like the beach like me or are you more of a mountain person? Do you prefer domestic travel or are you all about getting stamps in your passport?

I can’t leave you without sharing the Accessory Concierge 4th of July Sale. This is one of the few times they offer 40% off site wide. Some of my favorite, most worn pieces have come from AC. Check them out for yourself and order a few things to up your accessory game.
