one. I packed two books for vacation and am happy to report that I finished them both! The first book I blew through was The Good Girl. Wow. It was so dang good. The last page of the book left me so completely shocked that I had to recap the entire story to Matt to debrief.
two. The second book I read was The Girl on the Train which despite being highly recommended by so many people I just didn’t love it like I’d hoped. I still want to see the movie but was a little disappointed with the hype all summer over this book.
three. Before we left for our trip I discovered (in a mommy group – ha!) a magical “hydration” powder – Drip Drop. This stuff was a lifesaver for Matt and I after loooooong days in the sun by the poolside bar! We just can’t hang like we used to but Drip Drop came to the rescue each day. We drank the lemon flavored powdered and it was delicious – tastes like Gatoraid! Highly recommend!!
four. A definite vacation necessity – the selfie stick! We’ve been using our selfie stick for years and it was perfect for vacation…until day two when I had one too many pina coladas and took my stick for a swim with me. Fun times.
five. Once my selfie stick became useless to me I carried my big camera around which wasn’t all that bad since the photo quality was obviously way better. And I love that my wi-fi SD card allows me to view and easily transfer my photos from my camera to my iPhone in just a few seconds so I could keep my Instagram game strong. Ha! If you don’t have a wi-fi SD card for your camera you need to add it to your Christmas list.
