i'm simple. a clean patio, a good book, a cold drink and my hubby grilling ribs. they absolutely fall off the bone and melt in your mouth. and no plans any time soon.

It's not what you gather, but what you scatter, that tells what kind of life you have lived!

My dream vacation is being on safari in Botswana. Living in tents with elegantly prepared healthy meals, spending the mornings and afternoons on game drives or walks, spending the midday in a blind with a good book and my camera just seeing what might come down to the water hole for a little drink.

We have done this twice and it is great. I live my life on schedules so when we go on a vacation, haven't been on one in 3 years, we just take a week off and pick a point on the map and drive until we get there. If we see something along the way we want to see or do we change course. No reservations, we find something when we decide to stop. No shedules! We ended up at the Grand Canyon one year that was great. We just drive where ever. Usually about 2500 to 3000 miles in 9 days.

Our dream holiday.. mmmmm. We took a good one 5years ago. Me, Nick and the 3 kids 10, 8 and 6yrs old.

We flew from London to Boston, stayed at the Omnipark,3days (Celtics; Heaven)
Then flew west to LA, spent a week at Disney, Universal and Hollywood,
We then picked up a 30' RV and traveled for a further 4weeks; San Francisco, San Diego, California, Palmsprings, Yosemite, Hoover Damn, Vegas for christmas with friends.New years Eve blankets and a bottle of wine watching the sun go down and seeing the sun come up on New Years day over the Grand Canyon, The joshua tree NP and 29 palms (the best chicken and ribs). Then back to LA for a flight home. I can't describe everything we done; much to much to explain and appreciate. The people we met and seeing some of heaven on earth. You had to be there to believe it.
We were and are family. makes you appreciate them and the life you have.

Amazing!

my favorite thing is having my daughter come up to me and say mommy do you want to love on em for a minute?
every night I tell my girls thank you for being my daughter, then I whisper in their ear you are the best present.
when one of them wants some loving or just to get some attention they say mommy i love you I'm you best daughter.

I know what you mean. I have been dreaming of taking a trip out west to see the Grand Canyon with my 2 year old daughter, who loves cars and trains and is addicted to the movie Cars. I'd also like to take her to beach to see the dolphins.

I get stressed at work sometimes and just being with my daughter takes me away from all that. I say, "hey, baby, you are the antidote!" and she says, "No, antidote" and we go back and forth like that and she thinks it's hilarious.

I'm torn between two extremes. First would probably be a cruise from Washington up to Alaska, check out some glaciers and then an RV through Denali Park. (need at least 2 wks to do all this). My other dream vaca is an all-inclusive resort villa somewhere warm, quiet & with a white wine spritzer or an icy Corona light w/lime served to me on the beach--only the sound of waves and some sea birds. Hmmmm...

My dream vacation would be to go to a tropical island (Caribbean would be fine) during the worst snow storm in Pennsylvania or when it is extremely cold, take NO work with me, and have someone serve me a Gin and Tonic right on the beach. ABout a week of that would be great!

Subway comes to mind for fast food. But as for a resturant we love Red Robbin. OK I know it's not excactly healthy but you can order 1/2 a salad instead of the huge ones they serve. I always get the Ensenada Chicken Platter with one breast, no salad dressing, salsa and guac instead of the ranch dipping sauce. Red Robbin's website allows you to customize any meal so you can see exactly what you're getting. www.redrobin.com/customizer/

I can't think of a healthy restaurant per se - but thanks to SP - I am learning quickly the best things to order in ANY restaurant. I also live on the Gulf of Mexico so there are a lot of seafood restaurants and lots of fresh fish and shrimp. I usually try to order grilled or broiled seafood!
