Summer Getaways

As much as I love living in this city, I love visiting other places.  It’s good to get way from time to time! Not only do you get a break from the grind, you get a chance to taste the good life other places has to offer.

I was in New Orleans earlier this month attending the wedding of a wonderful couple! I was so happy to see them so in love and excited about their future together. (BTW: It was the coolest wedding EVER).

New Orleans is just a romantic place to be, single or not.  Between the food, music, and especially the people, you are bound to have a great time.  I hope to get back to New Orleans for the Essence Festival and I will be headed out to volunteer on my annual trip in Mexico next week.  I would love to squeeze in a quick trip to LA or NY this summer too.

What do you have planned for summer?  Is there a special destination that you plan to check out with a special someone?  Are you planning a girls weekend or a weekend with the guys in Vegas?

What are the top places to go in the summer if you are single and looking?

What do you think are the most romantic places to go as a couple?

What’s your most memorable summer vacation? You can change the names to protect the innocent, if you like!

Safe travels to everyone globe trotting this weekend!

Purp – As soon as I read that, I thought of Exiled trying to check out folks wangs at the blog urinals. :shock: And I got the funniest picture in my head of you sitting at a bar intently focusing on your Blackberry whistling, while a chick puts corn rolls in your hair. You get back to the Mrs and she’s looking at you like you just got back from the hood somewhere.

I am going to wear my hair in two pony tails on each side and some of those things on the end with some rubber bands, just like Snoop this weekend. Now All I need is an 5x TShirt, some addidas, jeans and a red bandanna to hang out of my back pocket.

THIS STARTED OUT SUGGESTING PLACES TO GO………….ENDED UP BEING TWO WAY CONVERSATIONS BETWEEN A FEW FOLKS WHO LIKE TO BRAG ABOUT THEIR PAST TRIPS. THE MOUNTAINS AROUND YOUNG HARRIS,HIAWASSEE AND BLAIRSVILLE ARE FINE FOR RELAXING ,FISHING,BIRDWATCHING,CANOEING,SWIMMING NOT TO MENTION “A/SITTING AND A ROCKING.
GO TO BEACHES IN FLORIDA THAT ARE NOT LIKE A 3/RING CIRCUS. THERE ARE SOME FINE ONE……………….JUST GET A CHANGE OF PACE WITHOUT GETTING WACKED OUT ON BOOZE

Knowing Purp, he’d temporarily hire some illegals to fill in the pool just so he wouldn’t have to waste time getting the belly flop & hairy cooter contest started

See…that’s how that French dude’s DNA ended up on the maid’s uniform. He left a dirty condom on top of the remote. She smeared it on her uniform Monica Lewinsky style and headed to the bank for a cash advance on this big A settlement she’s going to end up with.
