But really, if I had a million dollars, I'd do a lot of things. And I got to thinking about all of this when I realized how incredibly expensive it can be to plan and execute a wedding. I mean, my gawd, it's one freaking day. I'll look back on the photos I'm sure, but let's be real...I probably won't remember what brand of liquor I drank or what the window shades looked like. But really, PEOPLE WORRY ABOUT THESE THINGS.
I knew before I started planning a wedding that it would be great to just have some extra money..namely, millions of doll hairs. And what would I do with it? Well, travel of course!
First stop, Venice, Italy. Alright, I admit, I've already been here before...twice....but I LOVE THIS CITY. And you will, too, so I'm taking you. While we're there we will eat and drink a lot, so this probably shouldn't be our first stop since we'll be hitting a lot of beaches afterward, but I like to start off with a bang. Go big or go home, right?

I digress, once we leave Thailand, we'll head south and get us at LEAST a week's stay at one of these luxury huts. I say "we" like I didn't just admit I have no geography skills and fully believe anyone would travel with me. Bridget is looking better and better here.
That is neither here nor there, because just look at these huts. LOOK AT THEM!
So when we're done here, which will likely be more than the allotted week I talked about, we'll pack up our private plane and jet back to the US, because WE HAVE SOME REALLY COOL PLACES RIGHT HERE IN OUR OWN BACKYARD! Yes, it was necessary for me to cap that.
First stop? Napa Valley. Beautiful weather, good food, wine, and buses that take you from vineyard to vineyard on a glorified grown-up bar tour. Who in their right mind would say no to that?
Is anyone tired yet? Because I'm thinking a couple nights in New Orleans for Mardi Gras would be a great next stop. I've always wanted to go and NOLA being this year's Super Bowl host city only fueled the fire.
Sidenote: Has anyone been? Dane and I are actually considering heading that way (eventually) and I'd love to hear your stories--good, bad, and ugly. I don't discriminate.
We started with one of my favorite places and we will end our journey in one of my favorite places..Key West, Florida. Grab a beer at Sloppy Joe's and watch the sunset from the Southernmost Point--I think it's the perfect relaxation setting after such a whirlwind trip.
So, who's coming?
