I had fun creating my lists of Five for this Old School Blogging Post.  


  1. Love the RV idea, sounds amazing.
    Thank you for playing along!

  2. Replies
    1. Thinking about the answers really forced me to focus on things I wouldn't normally think about.

  3. What a fun post idea! I love it and I may borrow it from you! I loved your 5 things to do before I die (so sweet) and places to travel! You have to go to Italy! IT's amazing :)

    1. I visited Italy when I was 11 years old and I didn't appreciate all the things we did and saw. We stayed for a month with my Nana and Papa. I have fond memories of this.

  4. I love your RV idea! Oregon is a beautiful state to drive through and has many fun and interesting places to stop. It would be great for that!

    I absolutely love that you have a passion for planning! Planning seriously soothes my soul. Even just planning my grocery list. haha

    1. I love to plan, and love to cross things out as I finish them, even more.
      Funny you should mention Oregon, we are thinking about visiting there soon. Maybe to live?

  5. It would be super fun to travel across the country in an RV.

    I haven't watched Edward Scissorhands in a long time. It is time for a rewatch.

    1. It's always been my dream even as a youngster.

  6. I see we have a favorite movie in common - Shawshank - so amazing! My sister lived in an RV for 2 yrs with her family - 2 kids under age 4. Said it was the an amazing adventure to travel and see the country! Perhaps you will soon discover this to be true for you too.

    1. I sure hope so. What a champ in an RV with 2 kids under the age of 4, whew.


Recognition is the greatest motivator.
