Got the Travel Bug

Yesterday, one of my best friends got married in Maui and oh how I wish I were there right now.  Some of my other friends that went to the wedding sent me pictures from the beach and boy was I jealous.  It’s seriously been over 7 months since I’ve even been on a plane (so crazy to think that I used to travel almost every other week).  And it’s been even longer since the last time I went to a beach or rode a cruise.  Needless to say, I’ve kind of got the travel bug right now.  I know that some people say traveling with a newborn is easy since their needs are minimal (sleep, eat, poop), while others claim to wait until your baby is older to travel.  For me, it’s the pumping (and all that goes along with it) that is holding me back.  And what’s preventing me from sleeping longer than 7 hours at a time.  At the end of this month, we’ll be taking a family roadtrip to Branson, MO, woohoo!  My dad’s got a timeshare that needs to be used up, so we said why not?

We haven’t quite decided when or where we’ll be taking our first plane trip with Austin, but I am looking forward to it when that day comes!  Hopefully we’re not the crazy parents that everyone stares at because we can’t control if our baby cries.  Sometimes a baby’s got to do what a baby’s got to do and there’s no way around it – now I finally understand why parents sometimes can’t control their crying babies on planes.  But for now, I’ll just wear necklaces with beaches pictured on them and tops with sailboats to get me through.

    Sounds fun! I am constantly traveling between three houses with Lilly and she does really well. I think a huge part of that she is bottle fed so shes a lot more mobile. Hope it goes well for you!
    P.S. Love the Sailboat tank!

    I definitely have the travel bug as well….and lately I’ve got Peru on my mind. Just dying to go over there, see the incredible sites, eat the fantastic food, and practice my Spanish! 🙂

    I have my Chicago blogger meet up in August! And Izzy and I want to go on a cruise but we have to save a bit first.

    We are traveling to Cali in less than a month. I’m nervous about traveling with an 18 month old! I’m unsure of how he will respond to traveling and all I can think about is how he traveled to Hawaii when he was 2 months old. It was awful. Our fault really… I mean, I doubt its normal to take a newborn on such a long trip. I hope it goes better!

    Love your top btw!

    The road trip sounds fun! We’re planning a road trip to Portland later this summer. I understand your nerves about flying with a baby. We took our first plane ride with C when she was 10 months and it wasn’t as bad as I had imagined, although we’re still not brave enough to fly longer than 3 hours. If they cry then they cry, don’t worry about the people around you because you’ll never see them again!

    Again, awesome styling of that necklace, Sandy! 🙂 Many thanks! No trips planned here, but I’m getting the itch again, too!

    Your trip to Branson sounds really wonderful. It’s always nice to get away. When my daughter was little, I thought she was really easy to travel with. And she always slept so well on airplanes. And, she was free, so that’s always a plus. I think babies are harder to travel with when they are more active and mobile. 🙂

    Traveling with a baby seems like it would be a huge hassle! But I understand having the travel bug 🙂 We’re hoping to fly out to France this Christmas to visit my parents – Baby Boy will be 4 or 5 months old by then and I’m already nervous about it!

    what a fun shirt!! I love it! and getting married in Maui? that would have been so nice to go to!!

  12. May 9, 2012 / 8:18 am

    Sandy,
    I so agree with you…travelling with a little one is tough. That said, we made the trek to Rome when our first was 7 months…and it went well!
    Love your outfit, cute and comfortable.
    We’re off to Fla first week of July for 5 glorious, hot weeks.

    Your sailboat print top is so cute and your aqua shoes just pop! I’ll be going to the Bahamas in a month for my wedding anniversary and a friend’s destination wedding. It’s been a year since I last took a vacation so I can’t wait! I do live at the beach though so every summer is like one big vacation for me 🙂

    I know what you mean about the crying babies on planes – I get so impatient, but then I tell myself off for being so mean – babies are gonna do what they’re gonna do! And I love the sailboat top – very cute!

  18. May 9, 2012 / 10:58 am

    Well, it sounds like you’ve at least got a little bit of a trip coming up, that should be GREAT. But I can see how Maui may seem a bit better than MO haha.

    Love the minty flats you have on here!

  19. May 9, 2012 / 11:18 am

    No trips planned her either as Adele is still too young(5 mos), but I would love to go away somewhere! Love your shoes by the way!!

  20. May 9, 2012 / 11:45 am

    A vacation sounds perfect…i have so many happy memories of family vacations!

    We just spent our anniversary weekend in Branson because we couldn’t bear to be too far from Jack. It wasn’t on my bucket list or anything, but we definitely laughed a lot 🙂

  22. May 9, 2012 / 12:37 pm

    I keep asking my mister if we can plan a few long weekends for this summer; not necessarily to travel far away, but to get out & do something as a couple. 🙂

    I just love your outfit! Those shoes add the perfect pop of color.

  23. May 9, 2012 / 12:40 pm

    Love this look! I will be near Branson at the end of the month. My husband’s parents’ own a place on Table Rock Lake. Maybe we will be there around the same time!

  24. May 9, 2012 / 12:50 pm

    I definitely have the travel bug too! I wish I could go to Maui this year, but I think it’ll be more like a Michigan road trip and maybe Vegas later in the year. Still fun though! Love your outfit!

  25. May 9, 2012 / 1:16 pm

    So cute! I am a travel junkie too! Love the print of your shirt and the beautiful flats!

    Aww that sounds like so much fun! I haven’t traveled since November, and I’m taking a short trip in July. You look adorable, by the way.

  27. May 9, 2012 / 1:40 pm

    I love your outfit, the flats stand out & the pattern of your top is adorable =)

    You are so cute, Sandy!!! Love this outfit! & I want your shoes! Haha.

    Ahhh, it would be amazing to go to Hawaii right now… (Or any time! Haha.) I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to fly almost every week! I need to take ativan just to be on the plane, ahha! 😉

  29. May 9, 2012 / 8:50 pm

    I hope you get your vacation soon! I love that adorable top, and I can’t wait to see you at the meetup tomorrow night!

  30. May 9, 2012 / 10:38 pm

    Red + turquoise always makes me happy. 🙂 Great outfit! Hope you can squeeze a trip in sometime soon …

    Oh Sandy, don’t tell anyone at work about your travel bug or they may try and recruit you to go on the road again! I booked a couple of vacations this summer/fall yesterday so yay for that :). I wouldn’t worry about Austin on planes–seriously, babies crying on planes doesn’t bother me, but kicking my seat or person who is old enough to know not to scream is a different story. Austin will be a pro traveler I am certain!

    That’s right — sometimes it’s easy to travel with infant, sometimes it’s easier when they’re older — you just gotta do what you gotta do! We have not been on a plane with J yet — scared — so good luck with whatever mode of transportation you choose. Have fun, and don’t expect to get any rest. Really. It’s going to be tiring!
