roadtrips.

June 17, 2015

Over the weekend, my mom and I took a little road trip for some shopping! Road trips with my mom are one of my favorite things to do. It made me think about all the many things that you need for a succesful road trip and I thought I'd share them with you for this month's Circle Link-up!


Roadtrip


snacks // these three are a must for me, something sweet, salty and sour!
water // staying hydrated while driving is a big deal, even if that means several bathroom breaks.
music // a must for a roadtrip right now is definitely Taylor!! (as long as Peter's not in the car!)
sunglasses // no need to squint from that bright sunshine with some cute shades on your face.
itinerary // this is one thing that I hate to leave home without when I'm taking a trip. I always have a set plan no matter how long or short the trip so we don't have to guess on what to do.


Some of the highlights from our little trip to Charlotte, NC are below! It was a great trip full of yummy food, laughing till we were both crying and all the wonderful things that a mom/daughter trip is made of! We started the morning off with The Flying Biscuit Cafe which is one of our favorite breakfast spots! 


After the shopping trips to Southpark Mall and IKEA we finished on a high note at this really neat pizza shop. My mom requested pizza but we both wanted to make sure it was a spot we've never been to before and we were so happy to find Fuel Pizza! It was so yummy and the perfect thing to fill our tummy's before drive home with our full car from IKEA!!



What is a MUST for you in the summertime? Something sweet to sip on at a picnic? A favorite book to read while sitting by the pool? Or maybe some flip-flops to throw into your beach bag? Create a moodboard or collage and tell us what your musts are for this upcoming sunny season!

  5. That sounds like such a fun road trip! It's been a while since I've been on one, that needs to change. These are great essentials--I'm with you on the Reese's being a necessity!

  6. I LOVE Flying Biscuit! We have a few locations around Atlanta, and they have such great breakfast. Their grits are amazing! I love your travel necessities, Cassie! I totally agree with all of them. :)

  10. You can't go wrong with a little peanut butter and chocolate, well, except for when they melt in a hot car during the summer! HA!

  14. Mmmm....Sour Patch Kids! I'm a little picky in that I only like mine when they're fresh (and not stale and hard) but they sound so good right about now! Gummy bears and Sour Patch Kids make the best roadtrip sweets. :)


    Sounds like a great trip for you and your mom! So glad you got to spend some time together--at IKEA, too! I just went there with my sisters and cousin this past week and it was wayyyy too much fun. :)


    Thanks again for co-hosting!!
