Sarah’s Rehearsal Dinner at Camp Vanasek in Baxter, MN

Rehearsal Dinner-021.jpg

Earlier this month, we flew to Minnesota to visit The Nerd’s family for his cousin’s wedding. Although I’d never met Sarah in person, I felt like I had known her for years and that we were already friends. I couldn’t wait to get to hang out with her and celebrate her marriage to Marc!

Sarah and Marc are really the perfect couple. They compliment each other and their love of one another was obvious. I was really impressed at how they crafted their wedding celebration around their personalities. One of the things I loved the most was their rehearsal dinner at Camp Vanasek in Baxter, MN.

Destin Resorts: Buccaneer Pirate Cruise

One of my favorite things I got to experience during my Destin resorts vacation was the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise. In HarborWalk Village, you can’t miss the giant pirate ship that sails in and out of Destin Harbor. It often fires its canon and the booms can be heard all around the strip.

The Buccaneer Pirate Cruise invited our group to come aboard and experience their adult-only “scurvy” trip one night. It was so much fun!

During my Destin resorts vacation last weekend, I got the chance to snorkel for the first time ever. Destin Snorkel graciously donated their time and services for our group of bloggers so we could experience this fun water activity.

I was really excited, but also a little anxious because I didn’t know what to expect. The Destin Snorkel crew quickly put my fears to bed, though, with their fun, upbeat attitudes and excitement for our trip.

Destin Resorts: Emerald Grande at HarborWalk Village

Emerald Grande

Last weekend, I had the chance to experience one of the best Destin resorts — Emerald Grande at HarborWalk Village — with a group of 24 bloggers.

We descended on the Emerald Coast for Brandcation, a sponsored weekend getaway that exposes bloggers to a particular area and the amenities it has to offer. In exchange for media rates, and sometimes comped, activities, the bloggers agree to share their experiences with their readers. You all know how much I love to travel, so this experience seemed right up my alley.

SAVE in San Antonio This Spring

Spring in SATX-024.jpg

You know what’s crazy? I’ve lived in Texas my whole life, and I’ve never vacationed in San Antonio. Now that we have Andrew, though, I’m dying to take him to SeaWorld.

Last week, we got the next best thing when we were invited to meet the penguins from SeaWorld San Antonio. It was a lot of fun and we learned lots of info about San Antonio!
