|Marlie spent Sunday at the zoo with her best schoolmate|
|She petted ponies|
|And drove a safari jeep|
|And had a really good time hanging out with her buddy|
|I am one of those annoyingly organized, type A moms who planned her daughter's Sweet Sixteen while she was still in my womb. So don't be shocked that I have already picked out Marlie's outfit for Halloween. Actually, she selected it from the girls costume page at Wholesale Costume Club. She made a good choice! The Monarch Butterfly costume is nicely constructed with beautiful details like rhinestones and satin ribbon trim. Plus it comes with these key accessories: leg pieces, wings, and a headdress. The headpiece in the package is less full than the one in the photo. Not a super big deal, but I like to get what is being sold on the packaging. Agree? I might just hot glue some more flowers on it from a craft store. Other than that, this costume is simply adorable and Marlie loves it! I also like that it fits well and can be used for dress-up play long after Halloween is over. Now I have to find a caterpillar costume for her baby brother.|

I was born and raised on the East Coast and not a year went by without taking one or more roadtrips along Interstate 95. My favorite was the drive from Miami to NYC. It usually took 22 hours, but my step-father could cover the 1,280 miles in 20.
We sometimes stopped in towns and cities along the way to enjoy the local attractions. One time we went looking for a famous lighthouse in North Carolina and got very lost. Back then we only had printed maps to guide us, there were to travel websites to consult and no GPS.

I have only passed through Pennsylvania, but now I want to go thanks the Roadtrip-a-Matic. I would love to take my husband on a romantic wine tour along the vineyards of the Dutch Country Roads. Check out the visitPA.com website today and tell me what roadtrip you'd take!
