Happy Friday, lovelies! I’m completing a road trip at the time of this post being published. I can’t wait to snap some pics in my temporary location.
I know I risk sounding absolutely ridiculous, but I can’t bear to be in a car for short long-distance car rides. If I’m going to be in a car headed somewhere, it has to be far. When the road trip is over, I need to be in a different state. In the instance it’s somewhere I’ve never been, then I don’t mind the short long drive. It even sounds silly as I’m typing it, but consider this: Pensacola is 7 1/2 hours away. I’d be in the car for almost 8 hours and still be in the same state? I can’t.
Anyway, I actually look forward to road trips when it’s just my boys and me. The longer the drive, the better. If you know me, you know I don’t love to drive, but I will usually force myself to take the wheel…for an hour or so haha. I recently drove for 12 hours straight! I hadn’t done that since my college friend and I drove to Florida. Usually though, Milt drives the entire way…15 – 18 hours…all by himself…
What I love about these road trips is just being with them with no distractions. We rent movies for Milty to watch, we listen to music, and we chat…a lot! I love that. We just talk about everything. Of course, sleep is sometimes necessary in the rare event that I’ll need to drive, but when I wake up, they’re still right where I left them. There’s no better feeling than that.
Remember this dress? I wrote about it here and made a YouTube video here. Anyway, I love this dress and wear it all the time. It’s a bit loose on me, but I love it this way. It’s very comfortable. I feel as if I’m wearing a nightgown all day 🙂 Also, the flats are a pair I just bought at Nordstrom Rack. I had been eyeing a pair of shoes like these for awhile and was ecstatic when I found them in the store. I linked them above.
How about you? Do you like road trips? Please tell me all about it.
