Traveling with my Family
I hope you are having a wonderful day! Now I don’t write about traveling or anything of the sort. I leave that to funkidivagirland she is good at it! But Tuesday night I participated in a Girl’s Night Out on Twitter! Yes some of us Twitter Divas have a girl’s night out every Tuesday night. This past Tuesday the subject was Travel. Specifically where to travel, traveling with kids, roadtrips, international travel, etc. What a fun conversation! All participants were asked to write a travel related post this week..so here goes.
This past weekend the hubby and I packed up the kids to take a roadtrip to Middle Virginia for my good girlfriend’s wedding. It was an 8 hour trip and the first roadtrip we have taken with both kids. Luxe son was super excited. Here he is cheesing at 9pm the night we left!
As you can see the car is loaded down with stuff. Stroller, luggage, baby essentials, toys, you name it. Kids come with a lot of stuff!
Unfortunately, I did not have the correct directions so we drove 4 hours out of the way! So my hubby had to get us back on the right track at 4 am in the morning. Not a pleasant experience.
I used Lancome La Base Pro Primer, Lancome Teint Idole Ultra foundation, Lancome Sun Touched eyeshadow on lid, Lancome Click in the crease, and Iman Sahara on brow bone. And of course Defencil’s on her lashes. On her lips I used Mac lip liner in Chesnut and Revlon Lip Palette in Honey Bunch. Cheeks..Nars Exhibit A of course. Very natural but beautiful.
Unfortunately, I do not have anymore photos because I broke my camera while at the reception. Yikes! But the next morning after the wedding, we enjoyed viewing the beautiful fall leaves, the gorgeous mountains, and bright sun in Middle Virgina. We had breakfast at Biscuitville with friends. Yummmmy! And of course, on the way back we stopped at the Prime Outlet in Gaffney, SC, exit 90 off of Highway 85, and did some serious damage. I picked up several cute items for luxe baby at Carters. Luxe son got some new cargo pants and a cool button down shirt. Hubby came up on a beautiful quilted Ralph Lauren coat that was orginally $400 for only $69! I got a very cute purple sweater dress and jeans from Gap and I very nice slim fit pink polo shirt. We also had dinner at Five Guys Burgers and then back to Atlanta.
All in all it was a good trip. My tip when taking a road trip with kids: travel at night. The kids will sleep through it. When we arrived in VA, they were bright eyed and bushy tailed! No drama! Also be prepared for any possible situation. Pack extra clothes, diapers, baby food, strollers, toys, etc. Wipes are key and most importantly just go with the flow!
