let's go on vacation!

I have to admit, I am jealous of anyone taking a vacation this summer. With gas and vacation spots being at such a high price, combined with funds being low for us, the reality is that we will be enjoying our pool in the backyard quite a lot this summer. :) However, that doesn't stop me from imagining where I would go if I was able to... and that is where I had an idea! We should all share our ideal vacation with each other.... the perfect destination, pictures of relaxing places to spend the summer, etc, etc, etc! I hope you all will want to "go on vacation" with me. As dream-like as it may seem, it actually makes me feel good planning a trip I'll never go on... so let's get to planning!

Here are the guidelines...
I am going to host this "vacation" along with my mom. If you would like to play along, leave me or my mom a comment on any of our blogs letting us know you want to join us, making sure you give us your blog address as well. I will compile a list of everyone playing and on June 26th, we will all post our ideal vacation. Whether it is a small and simple trip, or a lavish and seriously unreal vacation, that is up to YOU! It is YOUR dream vacation for this summer, so plan as much as you want! We will want to see pictures of where you are choosing to "go" and we can all travel vicariously through each other. I will start a blogroll of everyone playing here on my blog, and on the day of, we will see how many make-believe vacations we can go on!!! I hope you will participate, and this gives us a chance to get to know many more bloggers as well. So if you are reading this blog, leave me a comment and play along with us!!

I have made a button you can puton your blogs to show you are playing the vacation game.
If you want the cute picture like I have on the left of my blog, let me know and I will email you the code! I would love all of you to post the button if you are participating, that way others know how to join up as well!! :)
The reason I don't have the the code on here is because blogger won't let me write the html code in without making it a picture haha :)


Tell your friends, share with others, spread the news, and let's go on vacation!!! :)

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Such a great idea. I am almost embarrassed to admit that I go on an imaginary vacation every Friday on my blog. Am I weird? I call them "sweet escapes," sometimes they are not really a vacation but just a dreamy place. Either way, they are an escape for me. Put me down, dear, I'd love to share my sweet escape for the day.

PS. I'm asking for ideas on something on my blog, so come on by and see if you might have one around your house to share!

Happy week!
Melissa
