IN LOVE: Road Trips

Can you believe it is OCTOBER?! Wow, the months are flying by. Today is our third week of the IN LOVE series and this topic is something I am very familiar with. Check out the things that I love about road trips over at artsocial.

Sooo guess what I'm doing this week... if you said going on a road trip, you are correct sir. After attending a fab wedding last Saturday in Albuquerque, my boyfriend and I are goin' on a little road trip through different parts of New Mexico... that's the plan anyway. In honor of this grand adventure, I thought I'd share all of my faaaavorite road trip stuff with you.

1. Friends, laughs, cruisin' along with the radio bumpin', road trips are F-U-N... unless you're in a horror movie.

2. The open road. There's something so calming about taking long drives. I love looking out at the scenery, contemplating the journey ahead, and letting go of the day-to-day... it's as if just because I'm going somewhere, I'll be learning something. That's exciting.

3. You can't have a road trip without awesome tasty beverages to drink along the way! Gotta stay hydrated... might as well indulge in a green tea frappuccino, yes?

4. Speaking of indulging, road trips are always a great excuse to eat allll of the things I normally never eat. Fries? Fried chicken sandwiches? Well there's nothing else to eat out here, I have to eat fast food.

5. I don't know what it is, but I LOVE staying at hotels - especially if they have a pool. I don't even get in the pool necessarily - in fact, I rarely do. I don't want to do my hair again, ya feel me? Just knowing there's a wonderful, glistening pool that I can use at anytime makes me feel very abundant. Weird, I know.

6. One of my favorite parts of road tripping is stopping at random diners. I think it's because it reminds me of being in a movie... important scenes always seem to take place in diners. There will be a confrontation or an awakening or some crazy plot twist... plus there's pie.

7. Hands down the best part of the road trip: the adventure. Not knowing what you'll see, where you'll eat, who you'll come across? Now that's the good stuff.

What do youuu love about road trips?
