What I love on Roadtrips + Pillow Pet Giveaway!


Image

My family and I went on a two month trip this winter to California! However, the drive from Minnesota to California is crazy long, it took us around a week of 7-8 hour days, to get there because of the bad snow storm that came through. Semi Trucks were jack-knifing and tipping over and sliding off the road all over the place! It was terrible!

With all that driving, you need some weapons. Some road trip weapons. With spending countless hours driving around in the past two months, I've developed a few favorites. Take a look....

(Podcasts are great to listen to while traveling - on my 'extraordinary' ipod nano - my favorite - "Stuff you Missed in History Class")

And what not to pack....


Sweet Paul

Ham sandwiches. Actually, I think I'm changing the spelling to "Ham Sand'witches'." When you start to eat them everyday for a week, the come to be unappetizing indeed.

Now! Did you notice that one of my favorite things to pack was my pillowpet? Its the perfect size for in the car, and it's so soft. Would you like to win one?

How to enter: Visit the new Pillow Pets website and look around. Let me know what your favorite feature is. Mine is look through their shop - it's fun to look with my cousins, they are ecstatic over some of the pillowpets!
