I spent all morning working on our London trip schedule! For big vacations, we like to make massive Excel spreadsheets with all of our confirmation numbers and schedule of events organized by day. So far, the only definite items on our list are:
- Tea at the Ritz
- Oliver! The Musical
- Spa day
For our trip to Napa Valley, we planned out each day in advance so we wouldn’t be stuck doing the whole “I dunno – What do YOU wanna do?” thing on vacation. We even listed out restaurants for each lunch and dinner, and I wrote down suggested running routes. It worked out really well! We didn’t feel obligated to stick to the schedule, so it was more like “organized flexibility.” 🙂
It’s so funny how different some people are – when my BFF Lauren goes on vacation, she literally just shows up in a foreign country with a backpack and no plan – no hotel reservations, nothing! I could NEVER do that.
I broke for lunch:
I had a grilled cheese sandwich with asparagus. There are so many fun ways to jazz up grilled cheese, like:
- Black Beans
- Apple slices
- Tomato Slices
I could go on and on! Basically, everything tastes better with cheese.
And one of those Gingerbread Man cookies snuck into my mouth earlier! He just got up with his little gingerbread legs and walked across my desk, up my chest, and into my mouth. I swear. 🙂
I am going to Megan ’s place now to use her apartment gym… and perhaps drink a beer. 🙂 I forgot the Husband took my car so Megan is coming here and we’re going to the bar. So there. Bar > Gym.
I like to search for events and local art museums when I go on vacation. My boyfriend takes care of all the restaurant planning, lol.
