My Answers:
1.) What has been your favorite vacation?
Definitely, Hawaii! My husband and I went to Hawaii in July 2006. It was so much fun. Would love, love, love to go back!

2.) What has been your most exotic vacation?
Let me stop you right here, and tell you. We haven't been on too many vacations. In the 10+ years we have been together, we have been to Hawaii once, and had several mini-vacas to the Oregon Coast, so the remainder of this is going to be quite boring. You can stop reading now. You have my permission.

One of many hikes on the Oregon Coast. Not exotic.

3.) What was your worst vacation?
I honestly can't say I have had that bad of a vacation, since I haven't had many. When I was 11 or so, my sister and I flew to Arizona to visit family over winter break, and our bags got lost, and we didn't have our clothes most of the trip. Guess that counts as my worst vacation experience. Guess I should count myself blessed.

4.) What is your craziest vacation story?
Hmm, don't really have one. Craziest vacation moment... My husband and I took some friends with us to Leavenworth, WA for Oktoberfest. For those of you who don't know, it's this tiny Bavarian town set among snow capped mountains. Oktoberfest people, is amazing fun. We get there, and the first night we go to have dinner, and our friend asks the waitress for a Miller Light. You know one of those scenes where the outsider walks into an old west saloon? Yeah, you could hear crickets...

Yeah, not anything super crazy or exciting, so sue me! Or better yet, offer me a free vacation so I can go have some crazy adventures!

5.) What is your dream vacation?
Definitely kayaking in Fiji. Staying in one of those little huts right on the water.

6.) If you could vacation with any three celebrities, who would you take?
You know, I'm not really that into celebrities. I'd rather bring good friends or close family. Unless it was a celebrity who was super generous with their money that would pay for our entire vacation...

7.) Who are your favorite people to vacation with?
My husband and daughter for sure. I love at this age that she is so curious about everything! Can't wait to take her to the zoo, OMSI, etc.

Playing at the ocean

8.) What is the best gift someone has brought you back from a vacation?
My aunt brought me back a super cool ring from Europe when I was young. I wore it for years until the band wore down and broke.

9.) What kinds of vacation did you take as a kid?
Seriously, this has made me realize, I severly lack in the traveling department. As a child, we often traveled from Idaho to the Washington Coast... Huge, I know! I do fondly remember going camping up in Canada at Kootenai Lake, and going to the Ainsworth Hot Springs.

I did get to go on one very special vacation with my Grandma and Grandpa when I was 14 or so. We flew into Reno, NV, drove through Carson City, Virginia City (ghost town), visited Yosemite National Park, and then met more family at a cabin on Twin Lakes, in Eastern California.
