Ten on Tuesday & Giveaway

It's such a nice day in VA today. It feels like summer and where am I? You guessed it...stuck in class! :( At least I get to spend time in between class outside :) and in Panera to study and have nom noms

Linking up with Roots and Rings for Ten on Tuesday :)

1. You're packing for a week long vacation, do you pack ahead of time or wait until the last possible minute to pack?
I wait until almost the last possible minute. I usually pack the day/night before we leave!

2. Are you a light or heavy packer?
HEAVY! There is no doubt about that. I have never gone anywhere with only one bag...not possible.

3. What are your favorite road trip snacks?
Trail mix, Chex Mix Bold Party Blend, and Red Bull

4. Do you take any reading material along?
Yes. I usually take a novel or two (in case I get bored of one) and magazines. I don't usually get carsick so I can read on the road, but I lovvve to sleep in the car...so usually, my reading material doesn't get too much attention.

5. Do you prefer to drive or fly to your vacation destination?
If I had the choice, I would fly! It gets you there quicker and you don't have to worry about traffic/car troubles/putting mileage on your car. Instead you get to worry about delayed flights and lost luggage...haha

6. What is your favorite time of the year to take your vacation?
Summer :) Or going somewhere warm during the winter, since I don't like to be cold!

7. Where is your favorite place to vacation?
The beach! Which is of course not my brothers' or boyfriend's first pick...lucky me :P

8. You are vacationing in the mountains, what is your favorite thing to do while there?
Make a campfire and then make smores!

9. You are at the beach for your vacation, do you like to take it easy on the beach or play all day in the water?
I am definitely 50/50 on this one. I love going to the beach and I usually start off laying out tanning/reading, then when I get really hot I run and jump in the water and swim around and catch waves. Then I go back and lay out to dry and have a snack. Then, repeat. I LOVE IT!

10. While you're on vacation, do you prefer to eat out every night or cook some of your own meals?
Both. If it's a short stay, I prefer to eat out because it's easier and one of the best parts about going somewhere on vacation is trying their signature restaurant spots! If it's a long stay (1 week or more) it makes sense economically to make your breakfast and maybe lunch, then go out for dinners.

Ahh...now I'm in the mood to vacation! If I could teleport, I'd be in OBX right now.
Momma and I are trying to plan a trip to Austin, but it's difficult to find a good amount of time to go that fits everyone's schedules! It's tough once everyone is out of high school!

Lastly, one of my favorite blogs, Sweet Southern Prep, is hosting an awesome giveaway! A Kelly Ripa Skinny Sideways Cross Necklace from Gems in Vogue.
It's different from the traditional cross necklace but I like it! Go check out her blog to enter before Sat, Oct 29 :)

Also check out just another preppy shopaholic for another great giveaway! A design-your-own pashmina scarf from Marley Lilly!! LOVE THOSE!

I hope everyone can go out and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!


  1. How cool - to design your own pashmina!?

  2. You just really made me want to go on vacation :) So fun learning the 10 little facts about your travel habits :)

  3. I like that 10 on Tuesday link up! I've never joined though :)

  4. I pack ridiculous amounts for vacations, too! Hope you have a great day!

  5. Great giveaways! I pack like I'm leaving for months for one week of vacation- and I would pick the beach every single time if I could. Love your intro- yesterday it felt amazing outside and I had class in the basement of a building. I literally watched the window as I walked down and said goodbye to the blue sky haha!

  6. i bought a sideways cross necklace months ago because i loved kelly ripa's :)
