My Handmade Vacation Travel Goodies!

As promised, here are a few shots of the handmade goodies I took to the beach this year! Because this year I traveled alone with the boys, I needed a larger carry-on for my goodies as well as travel/boy/emergency supplies (meaning snacks).  I chose to make the Aeroplane Bag by Sara Lawson/Sew Sweetness.  I have tested a ton of her patterns and have made almost all of them at some point except this one.

Menu Monday’s ~Vacation Edition!!~

Leaving….on a jet plane….Saturday!!! So excited to head to our annual family vacation next week in Virginia.  The boys are a bit nervous about flying, but it’s only a 2.5 hr plane ride tops so it won’t be too bad, right?!  This week my menu is basically preparing the house and kids for vacation.  Packing carry-on’s, check-in luggage, cleaning the house and taking the bunnies/cats to be boarded.  Nothing major, but if I don’t do a little each day it {Read More}
