Hubby and I just went on the most amazing Costa Rica vacation! Eight days of pure heaven on earth. The rain forest, wild monkeys, quiet beaches, exotic wildlife, peaceful hot springs, and views that never get old.
That all sounds like an expensive vacation but we were able to make our 10 year wedding anniversary unforgettable on a limited budget. I want to show you how we did it so you can do the same thing too!
You know those days where you have been running around from store to store to just get a couple things? You can only find like one thing at each store. So long ensues your scavenger hunt around town to finish checking off your list.
Then… you get home and realize that you still forgot something! Ahhhh!!!!
You might have guessed this is what happened to me today.
Tonight at our church we had a trunk-or-treat activity and of course the kids dress up. Well, to complete their outfits, the kids needed some face paint. That is exactly what I forgot.
Just the thought of running out to the store one more time was torture on its own!
That’s when I thought. “I wonder if I can figure out how to make face paint?”
Open road. Fun, dance in your seat music. Beautiful scenery. Feet up on the dash. Hands out the window. Fresh air blowing through your hair.
And… that lasts for about five minutes if you have kids in the car with you!
You have about two hours of your eight hour trip down in the books and the questions start piling up. It’s almost like you are suffocated by, “How much longer? When will we be there? Mom, I am so bored!”
Yikes! Okay maybe I am changing my mind about going on a road trip!
Hold the phone! Road trips can still be a lot of fun even with little ones buckled up in back!
It’s the last few weeks of winter and everyone is getting a little stir crazy up in here! Okay, maybe not so much down here in San Diego. But I do feel for you my friend, who live in other areas where it is still cold.
Remember, I lived in Idaho for about five years. So I do know what it’s like those last few weeks of winter just hoping spring was near!
That is why my kiddos and I have put together these boredom busters to help you guys make it through the end of winter.
With it being a new year and there are a lot of new faces around here, I thought it was time to update my “about video”. I get a little excited when I start talking about living frugal AND fabulous!
