Staycation 2014!

Do you know what I just remembered? Of course you don’t because I didn’t even remember until today.

I have a 5-day vacation next week.

You might be asking yourself, how does one forget this type of amazing information?

Well, the last time I took a full week off was in 2013.. June 2013. As in LAST YEAR and not this PAST June. So I kind of forgot what it felt like to have an upcoming vacation.

No, I don’t love my job so much that I prefer to NOT take time off, it just never seemed to work out this year. All summer I intended to schedule a few days off and plan some long weekends but summer slipped away faster than I expected and it wasn’t until last month I realized I was over my limit of vacation accrual. I needed to take time off ASAP so I quickly glanced at the calendar and picked the week of November 10th. Which is probably the worst time ever to take vacation time since it’s November.. and it’s cold.. and I’m not traveling anywhere. 

We decided not to travel this summer/fall and save that vacation money for when we desperately need it. AKA anytime from January – March when NEPA resembles The North in Game of Thrones

I am looking forward to a week off more than you could ever imagine. 

I hope to catch up on some blog reading plus maybe figure out some wedding stuff. Any suggestions on things to do during a week long Stay-cation (besides drinking my weight in wine?)

Who am I kidding? I plan on hibernating until November 17th when I’m expected back at work.

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for your chance to enter into an amazing giveaway opportunity!

  1. Hmm things to do while hibernating?? Netflix, cheesy movies on Hallmark channel, adding things to shopping carts online even though you know you'll never actually buy it, Pinterest, baking, eating things you've baked, wander around Target/TJ Maxx/ Homegoods (if you leave the house)… I hope some of these help! They are my go-to hibernation activities!


  2. I'm so jealous of your staycation. I have a 3 day weekend next weekend and I'm looking forward to it sooooo much. I hope you have so many comfy pi's and lots of snacks. Staycations are the best.


  3. There are lots of thing you can do on a staycation. Participate in sports like golfing. Volunteer to make the world a better place. Visit historic sites near you. Attend theatre and audition for a play. You can even download an Extreme Staycation planning guide to help you organize. Use your staycation time wisely.
