We've got the travel bug.

 cardi: cottonon   l   pants: cottonon   l   shirt: f21, similar   l   boots: nr, similar


and it's happenin.
 
This April the hubs and I will be heading out to Hawaii, Japan, and Australia. Kinda awesome aye? I think so. It'll be the first big trip for us! A little graduation present to ourselves and I'm kinda super excited. Husband's a little worried that we'll end up burning a big hole in our wallets/bank accounts. But I mean hey, if we're traveling that far, I feel like we need to go big or go home. ya know? haha.... says the one who isn't in charge of the finances. But I mean really, who travels all the way across the world just to sit around in their hotel all day? Nobody. I think I've made my point.

  14. We did the exact same thing (minus Australia), and while it burned a whole in our wallets, I think it was totally worth it! Gotta do that stuff before you have jobs and kids and stuff :o

    ReplyDelete
  15. That's so awesome! Probably the best trip ever! Have fun. You deserve it. Got to get all the travel in before life gets into the way!

  17. ohhh you're stopping by Japan!! yup that'll be a HUGE hole in your wallet. But no fear! You will be so happy afterwards and wont regret it ;) But I recommend shopping for clothes in Osaka. I find everything to be cheaper there than tokyo.

    I also really like this white cardi *tugs on it*...I want itttt >.<

    oh and JC lita are Jeffrey Campbell Litas. They're 5 inch platform heels and if you looked on lookbook a few months back, they were EVERYWHERE. haha

    Jerry and I should play games!! Let me know if he plays diablo. haha xD

  22. I totally AGREE with you! My husband and I were just talking about how we want to save money- not so we can have a ton in our bank account...but so we can TRAVEL! His mission president was like that too with his family and that's how we want to be. It think it's awesome that you guys will have these fun memories! And I CAN'T BELIEVE WE WERE IN THE SAME WARD!! When I first saw your blog I wondered if we were, because you totally looked familiar! Dang, I wish we would have been friends! Now we can be blog friends though! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I may or may not be wanting to head to CottonOn for this cardi. I really love it.

    I definitely think you need to go big or go home. You don't want to come back and say... "I went to Australia, but I didn't do/go/see ____ because it was too expensive."

    Following you back now!

  24. The BEST thing you can spend money on is traveling! That sounds like such an amazing trip!

  36. ooh that sounds like a fun vacation!
    my dad always say "when you go on a vacation, you want to have fun, and if you want to have fun, you have to spend money. stop thinking about how much it cost"
    LOL
    I couldn't help but calculating how much things cost in my currency tho!

  80. Hi Marsa =)
    Thanks for the compliment (I'm blushing over here)! Btw, I didn't answer your question about the Laie temple. My husband and I met at BYU Hawaii, so the temple was an everyday sight for us. We love Hawaii! That's where my husband and I met and fell in love. Anyhoo, that's exciting that you get to travel to so many neat places! I'm sure it will be worth every penny=)

  83. Wow wow wow, first off, can I have your cardigan?! It's absolutely perfect. I am so happy and excited for you guys, I know we'll all get a lot of pictures. You will love Japan! I never been to Australia but everyone loves it there and it's on my list. Honestly, I would not go to Hawaii, it's boring and way too commercial (touristy), I got bored (and my family) real fast. Seriously, go to Barbados, Bahamas, Bali, or even Belize! xx
