Truthful Tuesday

So, here's a post that's a spin off of "Random Confession Friday".  Some more random confessions for you:

1. I love Britney Spears.  Yup.  I don't care about all the crazy stuff she did.  I am always pulling for her.  When I heard she was going to be on X-Factor, I was excited for her.  I'm hoping she's amazing.  I'm also still secretly (or not so secretly) hoping that she will perform at the Billboard or MTV or American music awards some day and pull off a kick-butt dance routine (see how I stayed PG there... no swearing in my blog... or at least in this entry).  The likelihood of that happening is slim, but I'm still hoping. 

2. I am probably the worst eater I know.  My addiction to junk food is so bad that I have often hid sweets from my husband so I don't have to share.  Greedy and unhealthy.  That's who I am.  Don't judge.  Although, if I were you, I would judge me... harshly.  

3.  Sometimes I wish I could go back in time, just for a day (or a week) and re-live my university days.  It's not that I don't appreciate what I have now... I love my husband and daughter, enjoy my job, etc, etc.... but sometimes I do miss the days when all I had to worry about was exams and writing essays.  I ate out regularly, went to the movies often, went shopping pretty frequently, slept in as often as possible and lived with my best friends.  What more could you ask for?!  So... I have a solid business idea for people... as I believe I am not the only one with this kind of wish... you know how there are adult "Rock Camps" where people can go away for a week and pretend they are rock stars?  I think someone should have a "Re-live University/College Camp"... book some space at various university residences and allow people to re-live those days.  Granted I'm sure the actual university students in those cities/towns won't be excited about seeing a bunch of 30/40/50 year old people "partying it up" at the clubs they go to, but who cares.  I'm all for this.  If you start this business, sign me up... oh, and also, give me a cut of the profits... it was my idea and all.

I think that's enough of my confessions today... tune in next week for more (maybe)... or I may turn my attention to another topic.  I don't really have a great attention span.  Must be my lack of sleep.

7 Tips to Making Travel Easier

Travel is honestly one of my favourite topics of conversation.  I'm sure that's not shocking to anyone that knows me and/or has read this blog.  I've been asked before to share some of my tips and tricks for easy travel - here are some of my favourites.  Keep in mind that not all of these are ideal for every trip, so it depends on what kind of travel you're doing, but hopefully you find some good information.

1 - Store your passports somewhere that is easily accessible.... but not TOO easily accessible
This seems like a confusing tip, but here's what I mean.  Have you ever been in that moment of boarding and you're frantically searching your carry-ons for where you put the passports?  I've been there.  Those are stressful moments.  You don't want to leave your passports too easily accessible, as they can easily be taken from your bags, but you need them close by, how do you handle that?    I use a carry-on bag that has an inside zipper pocket.  I dedica…

Travelling on a Budget Series - Part 1 - Accomodations

My family and I have been fortunate to be able to travel regularly.  I often get asked about how we can afford to travel.  I'm going to share my money saving tips to help you reach your travel goals.  I have a lot of information to share so this will be a series of posts.  In this, part 1, I will be sharing my tips specific to accommodations - I will follow up with tips on flights, eating on vacation, activities/entertainment, and rental cars.

Before a continue, a little disclaimer - It's important to have an in depth understanding of your own budget.  It's important not to travel "beyond your means".  So that being said - Understand that in addition to my regular full-time job, I have taken part-time jobs in the past (fitness instructor, paid contributor to blogs, etc) to help us save for vacation.  I am not a financial adviser or any kind of financial professional, but my best recommendation is to go through a budgeting exercise first, before you start planning…
