Forehead bruising, floaty and tunes of the past

Do I have a bruise on my forehead?  

I thought I might from banging my head against the wall in frustration from multiple home owners who are refusing to get back to me about booking their homes on the last place I need to book so I can start planning.  I mean really, FOUR of you don't want our money?  VRBO owners...DO NOT list your home if you have no intention of getting back to people inquiring on your properties.  It's rude and cruel when you've finally narrowed down your few favorite places that you want to lay your head and then you get ignored.  Jerks.

Then as if to taunt me, I saw "The Trip 2015" on the Travel Channel last night and of course it's Hawaii.  If you want to watch the full episode, click here.  The Mr said it will only fuel our aloha for the 20 year anniversary trip next year.  Sigh.

One of my necessities for summer tomfoolery arrived yesterday.

MTI Adventurewear Women's Moxie PFD Life Jacket (affiliate link)
I tried it on at a sporting goods store, bought it and then got on Amazon and found they were selling it for $17 less.  So back it went and I ordered it online.  Sorry, mama's gotta count her pennies and the sporting goods store wouldn't match the price so pffft!

Last night's workout was Turbo Fire 45 EZ.  Soreness started to settle in pretty quickly so I rolled my legs a little and did some deep tissue massage on the arches.  

Dinner was chicken tacos and a side of brussels.

I was waxing nostalgic yesterday and looking at songs listed by year and came across this gem.  I used to blast this when the Mr and I first started dating.  It is the perfect song to bliss out to and the fact it features Spandau Ballet's Tony Hadley toward the end of the video makes me lurve it even more.  It was one of the first introductions to the Mr that his days of listening solely to Iron Maiden were over.

If you were taking a big trip in 2015 and money was no object, where would you go?  For extra points, go to VRBO and come back and post your dream rental.

  1. I really want to see people's dream rentals, that is a great idea to share that. So bring em on people!

    1. So do I!! I'm always interested to see where other people would love to stay on their ultimate vacation.

  2. I don't have time this morning to go for the extra points, so bummer there.

    If I had a "money is no object" vacation I don't think there's any one place I'd want to go. I'd travel and see all the places I've always wanted to go and never been able to. Hawaii would be on the list, but so would Maine, Mr. Rushmore, Disneyland, Sea World (I've got a kiddo to please), Stonehenge, Australia, and any number of other places.

    1. Lots of great places on that thar list! I can vouch for a few of 'em! ;-)

      I would love to see Stonehenge or more to the point the English countryside. I bet it's gorgeous!

  3. I think you have me sold on Hawaii. Although a cruise to anywhere would also be great. Of course, there's always that New England trip in the Autumn, that you got to take last year. That's been my fantasy vacation for a long time! Fun to dream--especially on this COLD Winter day!

    1. If you get the chance to do Hawaii, make sure you pick an island or two and truly go there, don't cruise. I always feel so bad for cruise people who miss out on SO MUCH of each island depending on how much time they have in port. The New England trip was awesome so yes, definitely do it!

  4. If money was no object, I'd plan a trip to Ireland and Scotland as well as Germany. Of the seven countries I've been to in Europe, Germany was my absolute favorite--and I thought it would be the one I least liked! I've always wanted to go to Ireland since the fam is from there (might be interesting to see where all the dysfunction started--LOL!!). I have more Irish music than I care to admit and just love listening to it.

    1. That would be awesome. We looked into a trip like that but I don't know if my big butt could make it in a plane for that long. I'd have to take some Benadryl. LOL Pictures I've seen though make Ireland look completely amazing.
