My question for you today is: What was your most favorite vacation that you’ve ever been on?
I am working on a fun new tutorial – I should have it up on Wednesday : )
I have a new recipe for you! I was craving hummus today so I whipped up a batch using what I had on hand. It turned out really good!
1 large can chick peas (590 ml)
2 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp plain yogurt
fresh garlic crushed
parmesan cheese (about 2 tsp)
(for the crushed garlic, onion powder and salt, add to taste)
I don’t like it too lemony so if you do like the more sour taste, add more lemon juice.
Mmmm, this turned out so yummy and perfectly the way I like it.
Crisp some tortillas in the oven and you have some quick and easy chips to go with it. Enjoy!
I just wanted to answer a couple questions that I’ve been asked recently regarding my move to the states and our pets. The dogs are just fine (thank you so much for asking : ) ) and Zoey’s test results came back showing she does not have cancer (thank goodness) and nothing else showed up either. They said she is an abnormal normal dog…. hmm… but basically she just has to have her blood and liver enzymes tested every year.
I suppose I have only been taking photos of the cats lately as they are the ones that are staying behind with Brent when I leave : ( The dogs are coming with me to California, and so is Fro, the guinea pig. I took a few new photos of the furries today.

A group shot – sorry it’s kinda blurry! and yes, it was a rather difficult photo to take! haha

my fav vacation would be my trip to the mayan riviera with my whole family..lots of memorable moments that I can’t wait to scrap..some funny and some not so funny. The people we met were absolutely amazing along with the workers. Learned a lot about their culture just by talking with them. Love the pic of all your pets by the way.
I’m french and 8 years ago I go to Guadeloupe… I adore this island, and Marie-Galante and Belle Ile, it’s paradise !!! The people there is so so kind !!!
thanks for the chance !!!
My favourite vacation was a trip to Cameron Highlands last year. It was the only time I went with my whole family.

Florida has always been my all time favourite vacation. I have been able to go 3 times!! I especially love magic kingdom!!!
My favorite vacation was to Cedar Point. DD couldn’t get enough of the ball pit! Hummus? Not my fav but hubby loves it. I’ll have to give your recipe a try.
Melissa LaFavers says
Oh my goodness, such adorable, beautiful doggies and kitties and piggy! I love the picture of all of them together.
My favorite vacation so far was to California, Spring of 2007. We went to SF and got to see Yosemite which is probably the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. I’d love to go back!

My favorite vacation ever would have to be the cruise my husband and I took where he proposed! It was a 7 day western Caribbean cruise, and our first port of call was Key West, FL. He proposed to me at the Southern Most point of the US, with an entire crowd of tourists watching and cheering him on. It was very romantic!
So glad Zoey doesn’t have cancer!
My favorite vacation was a cruise I took with my hubby for our Honeymooon almost 7 years ago!
not an exotic local – but my husband and i spent the best 17 days of our lives on casey key beach in florida – off season – and never saw anyone!
oh, and thanks for the great hummus recipe – yummo!
My favorite vacation has to be tybee island, ga with my husband for our 25th anniversary. It was quiet and relaxed and wonderful.

My favorite vacation spot is the Outer Banks. I love the pictures of your pets. Also, I am a HUGE fan of your mini album book. I just discovered it (and your website) last week. I’ve been here several times and keep your book handy at my work station.
i remember a month in Lisbon… sunny and bright… love this city !!!
I spend my last holidays in “Normandie”France, with my 2 little boys and my parents, we have so much fun with the children, and the weather was fine !!!
SUPER cute puppy photos!!!

Too funny – I posted the same question on wescrap!!! My fave vacation is to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe!!! I can’t believe you are moving so soon!!
One of my favorite vacation spots is Hilton Head Island, SC. There’s so much to do… shop, walk, swim, the beach, golf, and the big houses—ooh, la la!!
My favorite vacation is always a beach. As a child, every summer we would go to Pensacola Beach, FL for two weeks. We would each invite a friend (there are three girls in my family) to come for one of those weeks. I love the beach. Thanks, CindyML
We dont get a chance to go on vacation, but we do day trips, and i would have to say the amusement parks, the kids love it!!
We don’t vacation much, but I love Niagra Falls. I’ve only been to the Canada side, but I just love it there! Toronto is a lot of fun as well.
Cindy Gruett says
My favorite vacation was a motorhome trip with my husband to the historic city of Galena, Illinois in 2007. The country side was absolutely gorgeous. Lush green trees hung over the two lane highways and fields full of tall corn lined the roads.
Christina M says
I would have to say that my favorite vacation was when my DH, at the time he was my BF, took me to Thunder Bay, Canada. We drove the scenic route 61 from Duluth MN all the way up. It was in the fall so the drive was breath taking. The crisp fall air the brown, golden and burgundy leaves. We dug for Amethyst in the mines up there and just took in the sights of the island that looks like a man lying down. I can’t wait to take our two girls up there so we can show them the beautiful nature that northern Minnesota and Canada has.
Thank you for the chance to win and letting me relive my vacation.
Lori A. says
I haven’t had too many vacations in my life. My favorite would probably have to be when my Dad took me to Chicago for my birthday (can’t remember which 20-something bday it was now!). We had a lot of fun and it’s a memory I will always cherish.
Mu favorite vacation was a 5 week vacation back east. We drove the whole way and stopped and visited friends that had moved away and family. It was during the summer and it was soooo hot, but we had a great time. We didn’t make it to New York, but hoping to make the trip again and go there first this time!!
Great giveaway, thanks Jess!!
My favorite vacations are always beach vacations. Florida in 1991, New Brunswick in 2005, Bahamas in 2006…
My favorite vacation was to the Bahamas on a cruise for my honeymoon.
Heather S says
My absolute favorite was a trip to Kona, Hawaii with my husband. It was just a fantastic place to relax, take in the culture and spend quality time with each other.
Oh my favorite vacation has to be the one I had in May we went to Lake George Up-State New York and got married at The Sagamore Hotel, Boltons Landing. Not only was it a beautiful day but the setting on the Lake was wonderful and we were able to share it with my sister and Brother in Law who had come over from the UK for the “deed”.
Hi Jessica! I just found your blog and your petes are soooo adorable. You produce some really great stuff and awesome tutorials! I would love to be entered into your draw =) I think my favourite vacation would have to be when I went to Hong Kong. The shopping is insane. That was the last one I went on so it’s the most memorable for me lol. Thanks and keep up the great work!

My favourite vacation has and always will be as a kid when I would go with my Aunt & Uncle on the drive to the farm in Whitney, Ontario. It is where my Uncle is from and him and his siblings were brought up in this old farm house with no hydro or running water. It shall always be my most favourite spot in the world.
Janet Zeppa says
My fave holiday was in the Dominican when we took my 3 grownup kids and my future son-in-law.
My favorite vacation was in Kenya watching the Big five. A dream came true. Thanks for all the great tutorials.
Mary Howard says
My favorite vacation was in 2004 when the company I was working for them sent all of the management to Hawaii for a week. Half went the first week to Maui and then we had an overlapping weekend in Lanai and then the other half went to Maui. I relaxed so much and loved the sound of the waves crashing that lulled me to sleep. My room at the Maui Inn was only 50 ft. away from the shore line in Napali Bay! We also did so much fun things together. So many memories!
By the way – I just love how your furry friends all pose for the camera! It is amazing! Thanks also for the humus recipe – yum – I will have to make some this week!
Sadly enough I’ve never been on an actual vacation. We do lots of little mini road trips though… and my favorite is going to Geneva on the Lake (northern Ohio – at Lake Erie) to a place called Eddie’s Grill… the best burgers around 🙂
Char- D says
My favorite vacation was when I spent the entire summer in Alaska.
My favorite vacation was taking our 2 grandchildren to Disneyland and Sea World and getting to view this world through the eyes of the young! What a special time it was!
Kristin Sturgeon says
My all time favorite vacation would have to be the trip to Tofino on Vancouver Island I took with my boyfriend during Spring Break last year. We were supposed to camp, but as we were setting up it started to snow! So instead we booked into this amazing lodge called Middle Beach Lodge and had the most amazing, relaxing vacation ever. Such a beautiful place.

My favorite vacation was our trip to South Dakota, the kids loved it!
