  • Best vacation ever: Without kids, Poros, Greece.  With kids, first time we went to Walt Disney World.
  • Dream Vacation: Australia.
  • Always in my purse/bag: Berry lip gloss, antibacterial wipes, first aid kit, snacks, eye drops and sunblock.
  • Favorite road trip snack: Pecan swirls and clementines.
  • Favorite sing-along song for the car: Queen, We Are the Champions!
  • Best packing tip: Always pack plenty of snacks and don't worry if you forget something. Perfect excuse to shop for a wearable souvenir.
  • Best traveling-with-kids tip: Fill the kids carry-ons with new and secret little things to open on the plane WITH full packaging.  They love the surprises and can't wait until the plane takes off.
