What do you get when you have 17 items on a list and someone asks to fit something else on? What happens when three people ask you to drive them three different locations all at the same time?
Eventually you burn out, get angry, or you take control and cancel everything so you can make room for you. That is why the new trend of mom vacations is taking off. I decided to take one with my friend Dana at www.DanaVento.com.
What is a mom vacation and why do you need one?
Mom Vacation – (noun) It is a trip where you plan nothing except who you are going on the trip with and the dates. You may want to plan lodging and you may not. You just go to a location and relax, eat when your hungry, wake up and go to bed when you want. Get this you do not have to worry about anyone.
It wasn’t until my eyes began to twitch that I realized my stress was manifesting itself in a physical way. It was that moment that I knew I needed a break. I needed a mom vacation.
I grabbed a friend and we headed to Outer Banks for a relaxing weekend filled with everything we liked aside from the trip to urgent care. I will explain that later.
We were hosted at the Sanderling Resort in Duck, North Carolina. The rooms were “beachful” elegance and the location is gently nestled between the sound and the ocean. The property offers many amenities so you do not need to leave. You can enjoy the pool, spa, hot tub, water sports, biking or reading a book on one of the many lovely decks complete with rocking chairs.
On the premise the Sanderling resort features a charming dining establishment. The Caffey’s Inlet Life Saving Station No. 5 resort guests and visitors for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant asks that you refrain from wearing bathing suits with covers. I suggest you take the opportunity to get a little dressed up. You can sit by the fire and warm up as the coastal breeze increases your appetite.Continue reading
Does your family have different food allergies or sensitivities? Mine does, and it makes meal planning a bit difficult for me. My husband is allergic to gluten, and I have a kid who is allergic to dairy and another one that’s allergic to eggs. Honestly, it is quite hard to grocery shop and prepare meals because I have to be careful and make sure to consider the ingredients that I’m going to put in each recipe so that it will be safe for everyone to eat. Preparing individual meals for each is not an option because I don’t have the time and that will certainly be too expensive for our budget. So to make life easier, I made a list of Gluten Free Dairy Free Egg Free Recipes that I know my family will enjoy and that are easy for me to prepare especially during busy days.
El Paso means to pass through. What if passing through wasn’t that simple what if you couldn’t just pass through and remain unchanged when you left? That happened to me. I was on a press trip visiting El Paso. I thought it would just be another city in Texas. I was wrong.
