Mom Fabulous’ Top 10 Posts of 2017 + 2018 Travel Plans + $50 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway


Happy New Year!

I started off the year by trying to get really, really skinny. Meaning, I woke up on the first day of the new year with the flu. Yuck! I am finally feeling better and getting my head on straight. I hope you all have stayed well. The flu is running rampant it seems.

Our 2018 Travel Plans

We spent the Holidays in Colorado with friends and family and now we’re back in my home state of Texas for a little over a month. We’ll visit with family and friends, check on our small storage unit, make some RV repairs and then hit the road at the end of February for…Florida! 

We’re still trying to nail down our travel plans for the first half of 2018, but I do know we’re heading up the east coast. My vote is to stay there awhile so I can see it in the fall. I’ve seen pictures. I’ve heard from friends how beautiful it is and now I want to see it for myself. I am so excited!

I went on a business trip to New York City in February many years ago and it was cold, snowy and pretty miserable. I’m looking forward to seeing it when it’s not like that.

We are brand new to east coast travel, so if you have any tips, tricks, must-see places to recommend, please do!
