I would love to save for our Honeymoon! We never took one because of work and finishing college but after having two angels back to back in the two years we have been married, we haven't been able to afford, or save for that matter, on a honeymoon. Thanks for your helpful tips!! I think we would take a cruise to the Caribbean. Or through Europe. :) BTW I liked you on FB and following you on Pintrest!! Happy Blogging!

My dream vacation is to buy an RV and take my family on a cross-country roadtrip that is very loosely planned so we can make stops wherever we want. Since my husband is a teacher and we have summers off, the idea is not too far-fetched! :)

Jamee (michaeljamee@msn.com) said...

We would like to go to Hawaii since we could not afford it for our honeymoon. Now two kids later it's hard to save, especially because my 7 year old has been battling cancer since she has been a year and ten months old. Now we start radiation in her brain again in early September. So for now we just hope to take a family camping trip up to firefly lake in August to enjoy each other and a little bit of nature. Thanks for all the good tips!
