Disclaimer: This post was sponsored by Fayetteville. All views and opinions are mine and our views may vary. Do you ever just need a weekend getaway? Me? Yes, I do. I am always up for a trip with or without my family. Sometimes we need a break from everyone and everything. I had to convince my husband our weekend getaway to Fayetteville was going to be fun and full of entertainment. My husband works pretty much in Hope Mills, NC and he thought I would be so wrong about the weekend. We arrived around 1 PM and stopped by the Chamber of Commerce. We picked up a packet that had maps and fun things to see and do in Fayetteville. We toured the Airborne & Special Operations museum and the NC Veterans Park which are both free to visit. The Smithsonian-quality Airborne & Special Operations Museum tells the history of the US Army Airborne from test platoon to present day. The history is told with life-size dioramas and military equipment, multi-media exhibits and the Pitch, … [Read more...]

I could never afford the lavish trips I have taken in the last 2 years but I have managed to visit Mexico 3 times in 2 years. My husband has won these all expense paid trips and I of course can not refuse a free trip.When we bought our passport for our first trip we went ahead and purchased a 10 year passport. I am glad we did because we have been on 2 more trips . We do not go on the excursions. We enjoy just relaxing at the resort and keeping our cost to a minimum. I am also hoping that my husband will win again next year, the trip is for Costa Rica. We will find out in December who wins that trip.  We got to the Charleston airport in time for our flight which we found out has been delayed and they rescheduled flight for a little later only for our flight to arrive on time. We thought that was good news. Well as soon as we walked outside my husband reached for his shades only to find out they was missing. The last time I saw them was when he put them in the bucket to be scanned. I … [Read more...]

We left right around five o'clock from South Carolina, arrived at "Longhorn's Buffet Steakhouse" in Walterboro and it was just down right nasty. That would have to be the worst food that I have ever eaten in my entire life. We thought  once we get into Jacksonville, Florida we will stop but we need to go ahead and get to Jacksonville unless we get really tired. We rode along the interstate and found an exit to get off and find a hotel in Jacksonville. We stopped at a Ramada Hotel Inn in Jacksonville. My husband, Derek, went in to check in around nine-thirty and my daughter, Madison, and I waited in the car. While we were waiting, my daughter and I were observing the place and what we seen wasn't pleasent AT ALL. There was a man in the back of a police car, he was staring at us, and I didn't like that one bit.  Derek got our room my daughter and I both agreed that we just wanted to find a different hotel, location or just drive straight to Orlando. Derek went and cancelled our room we … [Read more...]

We had a great trip, the ship was a great.We cruised on the Celebrity Cruise ship.We had a great time swimming with the dolphins. The water was a bit cold but well worth going. We are going on another trip to Mexico in May. My husband wins these trips from work and we are now going to start taking advantage and go on the trips. Our passports are good for 10 years. We have turned down trips before but we enjoyed the time off so will no longer turn a trip away. … [Read more...]
