Vacation, vacation, I want a vacation



Actually, right now, I'd kind of like just to take a few personal belongings and set up a shack on the beach. Get a lawn chair and just stare at the waves...



Or go sight-seeing...


Or catch a game...


But NOT be eaten by sharks or alligators (tribute to this being SHARK WEEK!!! on TLC).


Or visit Sue...


And go shopping...


Maybe kiss in Branson?


Or go white water rafting...


(Even though our white water rafting trip ending with our raft overturning on a Class Four rapid...)


I'd really like to go back to Hawaii, but this time, I'd like it if me and Superman could go together.


I'd take New Orleans in a heartbeat.


But my heart still longs for this:


My vacation begins at 12:30 tomorrow and lasts until 7:30 a.m. Monday morning. Where am I going, you ask?

Well, it's a STAY-cation.

With this pup...


Hopefully these people...






And, most importantly, this man.


Sigh. How many more hours until staycation?

P.S. If you haven't already, don't forget to vote in the Movie of the Decade poll on the top right of my blog!

Can you two be any cuter? Stay-cation sounds great, especially with good friends, laughter and yummy food. Love all the photos. I wish I could afford a get-away vacation this year, but we'll enjoy our stay-cation.

If you REALLY wanted the beach, you could make it to Gulf Shores in an afternoon. :)

You know what - vacations are lovely but they can also be stressful. A stay-cation sounds delightfully calm and peaceful! Enjoy it!!!
