We recently visited St. Pete Beach and Orlando, Florida with Kevin’s side of the family. It was SUCH a fun trip – so relaxing and it reminded me so much of the vacations of my childhood. We always spent a week in Florida and split our time between Disney and the beach. St. Pete Beach was such a family friendly area, and I’d definitely go back. We also hit up Legoland near Orlando this trip.
Unfortunately, I’ve always been quite the over-packer and this trip was no exception. My suitcase weighed in at 53 pounds and I had WAYYYYY more options than I actually needed. During my trip, I chatted on IG stories about how much I had packed and there was an overwhelming response that many of you do the same thing.
By request, I’m sharing today EVERYTHING I packed for a week-long Florida vacation plus what I ACTUALLY wore. You can also find below a YouTube video where I go through each piece and describe why I loved it or didn’t love it. Keep reading ALLLLL the way to the end to get my free printable packing list for your next trip!
True story… I want to be Joanna Gaines when I grow up.
I’m OBSESSED with Chip & Joanna and all things Fixer Upper, and I’d guess many of you are too. What’s not to love about a wholesome couple with adorable kiddos and a knack for demo day and interior design?
Recently, my husband Kevin mentioned that he had to go to Dallas, Texas for a business trip and asked if I’d like to tag along with him. I’m never one to pass up an adventure, but I honestly had no idea what there is to do in Dallas.
I love you. I’ve loved you since I was an undergrad student studying business when I learned about your disruptive business model, unique company culture and commitment to customer service.
Admittedly, I’ve never loved the “open seating” model and feeling like I’m being herded onto the plane (I’m from Kentucky, so I have to use the animal/farm comparison). In recent years, as I learned of your groundbreaking customer of size policy I have committed to flying your airline exclusively in order to both help make my own flying experiences better but also to put my money where my mouth is and support a business who accommodates people like me and makes our lives better/easier.
I travel A LOT for both business and pleasure. Like, once a month or sometimes more. For a long time I was miserable during EVERY. SINGLE. FLIGHT. The craziest part is that most of this misery was self-induced, but some of it was out of my control… at least that’s what I thought!
Over the years, I have finally figured out the most important tips & tricks for a stress-free and comfortable flight.
What I’m about to share with you really, truly changed my life and eliminated 99% of my travel related stress.
