Staycation, all I ever wanted…


My IRL-bloggy bff Yankee Belle B is hosting a really neat swap!

staycation swap

(Is that picture not TOO funny?!  That’s the closest hubs and I will be getting to a vacation this year, that’s for sure.)

In order to take part in the swap, B asked us to write a post about our ideal staycation.  So, here goes…

I have two different ideas of a fun staycation.  The first would be to have tons of fun day dates with the hubster.  When we were dating, we would do stuff like go to Piedmont Park and people-watch, then go to lunch or go to dinner and then relax in front of a fun movie.  We never really did anything that was hugely expensive, but it was so much fun to spend time with each other.  I would love to spend some time doing that again and maybe add some new types of things, such as the Atlanta Botanical Gardens or Callaway Gardens, to the roster.

My second idea of an amazing staycation would be all about me…  a SPA day, where I treat myself to homemade facial treatments, (maybe) a mani/pedi, (possibly) a massage, and some time to read, relax and nap.  Most women don’t take very much time for themselves and I am no different!  I would love a relaxing and pampering day to myself.

Stay tuned for what I get in my swap box and how we spend our STAYCATION!

PS I really need to change my signature box; I’m not  the NEW Mrs. Manis anymore.  Saturday, April 16th is our 6 month wedding anniversary!

  1. Hello!

    Thank you for the comment. I am really enjoying making all kinds of new friends. It is nice to be so close to the beach but until I am toes in the sand I am not close enough to the beach.

    Can't wait to see who we are paired with. Hopefully we'll all get someone awesome. I love being apart of swaps!
