Gotta Getaway

First off, THANK YOOOOOUUUU to all of those who have entered the giveaway!!! You all make me so happy! :) If you HAVN'T entered yet- GET TO IT! You can scroll down to the last post or click HERE.

Now back to your regular postings...

I LOVE to travel. Recently I have felt the neeeed to visit this place...

ARIZONA


I've never been there (besides the Grand Canyon, but the part we visited was basically Ut, so it doesn't count). So, why am I feeling the need to visit? I'll tell you my reasons...

1. THIS book...

a FAVORITE of mine. Havn't read it? DO IT!

2. My dad has recently moved down there for his job. It's kind of hard having him so far away, but he is really enjoying the job- which is good. My mom gets to go visit him this week, and I am super jealous! Hopefully I'll get to visit soon!

3. There seems to be a plethora of bloggers from AZ. All of their warm weather, desert landscape, and red rock scenery posts are making me super jealous.

4. A while ago I watched the episode of Man vs. Wild where he is batteling the Arizona desert. Did it scare me off? Not at all! It only increased my desire to visit. Am I crazy?

Arizona is calling to me... Guess I should listen. haha!

What's next on your travel list??

P.S. I've got the tv on in the background (terrible that I multi-task like this), and Extreme Couponing is on. I don't think I could EVER do that! I don't have the patience. But this lady just brought her total down from 1900 to 103!!! How is that possible?!

It always amuses me when people want to come visit AZ! I mean, do you want to get dehydrated? Haha, but honestly I do love it here and when I go somewhere else during the summer I get homesick after like a day or two. Lame? Probably. Oh well! :D

ps. Looovveedd The Host

pss. DUDE, extreme couponing. I can't even fathom how dedicated those ladies are to saving money and clipping coupons. If only I had that kind of determination. I could probably take over the world.
However, I am content to sit here and read your cute blog instead :)

Awww, this most reminded me of a lot of memories. I went on a road trip through Arizona and even visited the Grand Canyons :) So spectacular! Hope you get to go to Arizona soon! ^^

Jon and I want to go there sometime- to see if we would want to live there. Who knows if it'll happen before he applies to fire stations down there.

And I can't stand couponers... I mean, cool, you want to save money. But can they PLEASE have a separate line at the store??? Because I get so sick of standing behind people with their big ol' notebooks full of coupons. It is REALLY annoying for other customers.

I totally was watching that show yesterday! Arizona would be so fun! There is still so much of the US I haven't gotten to explore yet and my time in the west is running out!

Ramsey said...

I'll take anywhere outside of this office right now... Blagh... Beach?

Ashley said...

I have always wanted to go to AZ! I want to see the Grand Canyon and also go to those spooky Western ghost towns...I think those are in AZ!?

I haven't read the Host, but of course, I loved the Twilight series. Also, I too have noticed that there are a ton of bloggers out there! It may just be the blogger capital of the world. :)

Hope you get to go soon!!!!

i am in love with man vs. wild.. favorite show :) also i'm kind of in love with bear grylls, but that's another story.

arizona is so pretty.. i'd love to go back! i passed through there on a road trip and then had to go for a work conference (less fun) but i'd like to go and just explore!

Brooke Skousen said...

YES! I am from arizona. It is the best state:) You should definitely make your way over here.

Next on my travel list is Europe! I leave in 3 weeks. Cant wait!

Thank you for following my blog and leaving sweet comments. Your blog is adorable!

Brenda said...

Wow, firstly your blog is so cute! <3

Second, AZ seems like an amazing state! I've never been.

Third, I've seen Extreme Couponing and was terrified! I work in a grocery store and I can't imagine spending a whole shift on one costumer!!

Sarah said...

I've never been to the Grand Canyon, would love to go there but Colorado/Wyoming/Montana has been calling me. I went there as a kid, spent so many summers camping in Colorado on vacation. I haven't seen mountains in so many years.

Also, I'll definitely look into your book recommendation. I'm not a huge twilight fan, but if i'm not mistaken, its the same author, no? I do remember something about Bella in twilight being from Scottsdale so makes sense she still writes about AZ. I'll look into it, thanks!!
