vacations all I ever wanted...besides a bed

This month we got a surprise bonus and we were able to pay off all our debt! Which is such a good feeling. Not that we had a lot, but still. So for a long time we have said that once we are debt free, we are going to save to go on vacation. 

Then last weekend we went to Mark's family's cabin in Idaho. For the first time, we slept on a king bed. In Maryland we slept on a double bed, and I slept horrible the entire summer. Now we have a queen bed, which is, ya know, better. However after we slept on the king bed last weekend realized that we need a king bed. We just need one. My sleep sanity depends on getting one.

So since we are planning on buying a bed, we now have less for a vacation. We kind of somewhat decided that we want to go to San Diego and rent a house with airbnb, then maybe go down to Disneyland. We are one of those people who are pretty firm in their belief that Disneyland is not a place you take kids, unless everyone wants to hate everything, so we like to get that kind of stuff in before we start poppin babies out. 



See?? Totally normal for adults to be at disney without children...........................................................................

Have you guys ever been on airbnb?? It's incredible. I'm thinking this one or this one or this one. Most of these houses are just steps away from the beach, which is cool. 

Anyway, if anyone has suggestions on buying a mattress, that seems like a very grown up thing to do and I'm not sure where to start. 

Now I really need spring break or summer to come like, tomorrow. Plz and thanxxxx.

  2. I love airbnb. We just booked a vacation through there and it was such a steal deal. It's one of those things that's best kept secret, although I don't think it's so secret anymore. (:

    xo.

  3. King beds are seriously awesome. We don't have one, but anytime we go to a hotel that has one, I wake up thinking about how that is on our future wish list :) Hope you find a great one! :D

  6. congrats! yay I loooove Disneyland!! And San Diego! I'm sure you already know this but it's like a 2 hour drive to Disneyland from there so as long as you're ok with that! If you have any questions about the area hmu because I grew up like 30mins from dland. Airbnb is the best, make sure you deal through the app (scammers will try to take things out of the app) and you should be good to go. as far as buying a mattress, haha, we got ours from ikea and it was super easy and we love it so maybe try that? Ours is memory foam and it's my fav. Good luuuuck!!!
