When I decided to plan this trip for the Phoenix Open, it wasn’t really for the golf, and really just to go to the Birds Nest concerts that were being held each night of the tournament. Any chance to see live music, especially Midland and Old Dominion, count me in!
I was a little burned out on trips to Vegas because after I’ve been more times than I can count for bachelorettes, spring break, annual BFF trips, etc! I can say in the past 8 years I’ve gone almost every year, maybe even more than once per year, and this year it seems that I couldn’t stay away, again!
I have been all about the “weekend” getaways this year- this one happened to fall on an actual weekend, yay vacation days!
We planned this trip right after our girls retreat in June, so I’ve been in anxious anticipation to reunite with all of my girlfriends for months! Our biggest reason to choose Atlanta was because Midland had a concert in town, and it was a perfect excuse to get away, listen to some awesome live music, and just have a fun weekend!
With all of the travel I have done in 2018 I feel like i have become a pro at packing for quick trips and always have the essentials with me! Since most of my travel is fairly quick- typically 2-3 days, I have compiled a list of my carry-on essentials when traveling.
I wasn’t a newbie to New York, but I still think there are so many things I missed out on when I planned my trip back this year! A few days isn’t enough to see and do everything in the Big Apple, that’s why I’m already planning my next trip back.
I had never been to Denver, so I jumped on the opportunity to plan a little weekday getaway with one of my bestie’s, Julia, when she suggested I come visit! She lives right outside of Denver, so for her it was more like a staycation and an excuse to check out some cool places around the city and play tour guide.
I set out 2018 writing out my goals, and one of them was to visit somewhere I had never been this year! The past couple of years I have saved up my vacation time and taken one big trip around the August time frame, but this year I wanted to go about it a little differently and take small trips throughout the year, because sometimes you need a little getaway more than you know!
