Saturday Seven: Vacation Edition

Things I learned:

1. Just because you pack your work-out clothes doesn't mean you are actually going to USE the hotel gym.

2. If your family of 5 can survive 8 nights in one hotel room they can survive anything!

3. There is never a vacation from doing laundry.

4. Watching your husband and  eight year old daughter get sucked into a Four Weddings marathon is priceless.

5. Forking out $499 for a car repair will blow up your budget but not your trip.

6. You will watch the same episode of Jesse 5X and it will make you want to poke your eyeballs out.

7. No matter how beautiful the scenery and how secure the bridge and how much you want to see it, your fears will keep you from it.

OH MY GOD! You had me at #1.

I can't tell you how many times I have packed my gym clothes on Monday, brought them to work, then brought them back home.

Untouched. On Friday.

Goodness you are SO right.

Ha! I always pack my gym clothes...and never use them!

8 nights in one hotel room? Yes, you really CAN survive anything! :)
I have brought my gym clothes many times and taken them back home perfectly clean and unused...

I have packed my gym clothes so many times and not used them. Packing and unpacking them involves exercise though...right?! You always have to find that silver lining :-) Hope you had an amazing time and a safe trip home!
