Back from Vacation & Favorites!

Happy Friday friends!! I can't tell you how good it feels to be back home from almost 2 weeks away. Admittedly, I was hoping to get at least one more blog post up while I was away, but at the request of my husband to just relax, I did just that and shared A LOT of our vacation via InstaStories! I have so many travel guides coming up in different varieties, but before getting into them I did want to share a few of my favorite things that happen when you come home from a long vacation!! 

Your Own Bed & Shower ||

Stay tuned for a Bed & Breakfast review of the White House Inn  in Napa
So hotels are fun and everything, but there is nothing quite like coming home and sleeping in your own bed. Same thing goes for your own shower - you're just used to the water pressure that you get & have a set routine of where everything "lives." We were in 6 different hotels & airBnB's on this trip which is a lot, so not feeling like we are living out of a suitcase is a very welcome change! The amount of laundry that was done yesterday is crazy to me! 

Eating at home ||

Definitely going to miss brunches like this one from Bardonna though...

Eating out is alway nice in the beginning of a trip, but after about 2 weeks of not having a home cooked meal you start craving your usual dinners - the crock pot meals that were mundane a month or so ago are all I can think about now! Not to mention, my body thanks me when I eat at home! One thing we didn't eat while we were on vacation was sushi!! I feel like I'm cheating on my sushi place here in Boston if I eat anywhere else, so we definitely had that yesterday for dinner!

Routines ||

Picked up a few more of my favorite pens 

Oh how I have missed my routine. The walk from the train to work, talking to my family without a three hour difference, watching my shows on TV & honestly getting to the gym is something that I enjoy!! I made a "to-do" list on our last night in San Francisco & I can't tell you how good it felt to actually use a pen & paper to write something down!! I'm a creature of habit & very happy to be back to my routine! 
What are some of the things you love to come home to after a trip? Hope you have a great weekend & I hope you come back Monday for a travel diary of one of my favorite cities I've ever visited!

  4. Traveling to new places is awesome in so many ways but I agree with you, there is no place like home! I usually can't wait to get home to the comfort of having everything I need around me. When you are away you make do. Can't wait to read the travel diaries!

  7. I loved following along on IG stories and it made me so excited for our trip to CA in May. It's nice that you took time to relax. I know what you mean, traveling and vacation are great but there is nothing like your own bed and being back in your routine. Looking forward to all the posts, happy Friday!

  23. I'm glad you had a great time traveling these past couple of weeks, but I can definitely understand missing home after a while. When traveling for a week, about the 5th day, I start feeling it and start missing all the things you've mentioned, my bed, my shower, everything! I look forward to your travel guide on Monday, I know you'll share some beautiful photos, tips, and some good food, haha! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a wonderful and well rested weekend, beauty!

  38. All of the above are the exact things that I most look forward to after being gone on a trip for a long time! It's amazing how much you can even just miss the smell of your house after you haven't been home in a long time. I hope that you enjoy your weekend home and can get back into your routines!

  43. I agree, traveling is so much fun but nothing beats coming back home to your routine, bed, and eating schedule especially after 2 weeks. Can't wait to read all of your travel recaps and good to hear you took the time to relax and spend time with the hubby! Love the scenery in the first photo so I know you have some good stuff coming on the blog. Enjoy the weekend!!

  48. oh yes to your own bed and shower. i like a lot of blankets and hotels never have enough to make me fully comfortable lol. my routine is definitely something i miss as well and can't wait to get back to. also being able to do laundry and put things away, that's pretty fabulous too lol

    ReplyDelete
  49. I feel ya girl - vacation is SO amazing but there is nothing quite like being HOME! :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. agreed on all counts..
    somebody once told me half the point of a vacation is to love more the life you have, the home you have.. a vacation gives us the opportunity to miss home.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I missed the same things you did when we were away. I had the best time, but making dinner last night was great. It is great how you love vacation, but nothing beats the comfort of home.
