Definitely New England or Quebec Canada. This time of year there's nothing better. (Although Hawaii comes in a VERY close second.) ;o)

Mumsy said...

WOW! Beautiful pictures. Lucky you...enjoy! Hugs

Lauren said...

oooh i love it!!! i want it!!! umm i think... somewhere you've never been... what about new york? and u can go see a broadway show and eat and eat!

Breckinridge Colorado is gorgeous in the Winter...if you like snow.
Wales, UK is my most fav place on earth tho, and I would recommend that to any- and every- one. The green there is greener than any you've ever seen in the US. Promise.
If you go to the UK, go in May or September.
You've already been to my dreamspot...Hawaii. One day...

I think you should go to Cape Cod, near Boston. We stayed at Chatham. It was great, and we got the best of both worlds...big city and beach.

And the beaches are really different there, which made it cool.

You should go to Ireland and kiss the Blarney Stone. Nice and green with beautiful vistas.

I am glad you are having a good time in Hawaii! And you just know you are coming here to San Diego :P

Preppy Pink Crocodile said...

I vote either Colorado- Aspen and Steamboat are amazing in both winter and summer- or Maine in the summertime.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Goodness what a vacation honey.
So happy that you were able to go to Hawaii one of the many places I long to see.
Your giveaway is awesome and so very generous.
Hard question about where to go since I would want to see all of them.
I think maybe Anchorage because of the friends that have been there and told me about the wonderous beauty they were blessed with seeing.
I have to put your giveaway on my site
Love
Maggie

Ummm...Provo Utah. Duh...so you can see me! Haha, just kidding. Go to Prince Edward Island...or Austria so you can run down the hill signing "The hills are alivvvve". Someday I'm going to do that. lol

carmen said...

Ok, well, I'm going to suggest two places that I would someday love to visit - among the very many.
First, Italy. My mom's family came straight from Italy, and I would just love to see it someday - ALL of it! Also, I think I would love to go to Ireland and see the old castles...hmmm...maybe you'll go to one of these places and then tell me all about it! :) LOVE YOU! LOVE YOUR BLOG!

Home and Heart said...

How sweet of you to think of us on your vacation! I would be thrilled top enter your giveaway too!! Thank you!!

Gilbert Family said...

goodyear, az. i hear there is a really cute little boy who misses his nana :) (Maybe that doesnt count since you have already been there, but oh well)

Shelly said...

Ackk,,,,,,I Am behind! You are having a giveaway? I'm going to put in my thoughts on a Vaca and then go POST your Giveaway on my sidebar! Pronto!

I'm headed "South this Spring!" I've only been to Dallas for trade shows and as far East as Chicago in the US....

And I always love to read books from the South, that's where all my fav authors seem to come from! So in March? I'm headed to meet a blog friend, Jill in Atlanta! And we'll explore from there! I cannot wait! (And I think heading Southeast around that time of year will help deal with all this wet and grey you and I BOTH know were gonna get!)

New Orleans would be fun, but I'd go to the Carolinas. How fun to see all the old homes, townships and the history??? Well New Orleans has that too, and a lot of music and food......tough call!

Again, though, I'd head South. I know our dear Blog friend Maggie suggested Alaska,,,,but in my opinion it's basically just MORE of what WE have in Washington.....Rain/Trees/Mountains. Did I mention RAIN??? Head somewhere WARM Girlfriend! We'll get Maggie up "here" eventually and she can get her fill of green and wilderness!


Good to hear from you! Your pics of Hawaii were gorgeous! I'm glad you got some away time!

Okay missy, I'm headed back over to my blog to post about your giveaway! I'd love to win, but more than anything, you are my prize!

Hugs and love,
Shell

Cherie said...

Definately go to North Carolina especially if you week is this time of year!!! Beautiful color and great weather!

Grammie/Mom said...

Landed here surfing through Blogland. August is a great time to head to Down East Maine. We love it there! You can be right on the ocean or find a warmer lake, attend many of the local blueberry or lobster festivals, whale watch, etc. So much to do. Your giveaway is very generous, thank you.

Carmie of the Single Nester said...

Okay so I am thinking exotic! Like Istanbul or the Greek Isles. I love Austria and would love to go back and visit. That might be a good one too for you! Bon voyage!

Shabby Cottage Collectibles said...

The most wonderful time I every had was on a Greek Cruise. Fly into Athens, cruise different Greek island, end up in Istanbul! It was my honeymoon trip!! That's where you should vacation you will love it! Warm hugs, Esther
