Plan Your Own Staycation & Win! (Giveaway – CLOSED)

With 5 kids, we don’t get to go on vacations very often. It’s just never in the budget. So, instead, we take some time and do a “staycation.” If you don’t know what a staycation is, here’s how Wikipedia defines it:

A staycation (also spelled stay-cation, stacation, or staykation) is a neologism for a period of time in which an individual or family stays at home and relaxes at home or takes day trips from their home to area attractions.

Living where we do, we have tons of options for staycations: Pigeon Forge, TN; Gatlinburg, TN; Atlanta….. tons and tons of options.

Earlier this year, hubby and I ventured off on a staycation without the kids. We spent a couple of nights in an Atlanta hotel and spent one day visiting the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coke. The next day, we caught Motocross. It was so nice to get away from the stress of everyday life and just relax. We didn’t go far away at all, and it sure cost a whole lot less than if we had gone away on a vacation. No plane tickets, no extra luggage fees, no taxi cabs, no rental cars. Just the two of us, having a wonderful time.

To help encourage you to plan a staycation of your own this summer, I’m giving one lucky winner a fabulous staycation prize pack. Here are the goodies included:

  • $25 Kroger Gift Card (to purchase the items needed for a road trip: Sodas, bottled water, snacks, and more – not pictured)
  • Coca-Cola Shot Glass
  • Coca-Cola Coasters (20 pack)
  • Coca-Cola Photo Frame
  • Coca-Cola Playing Cards

This is a fabulous little prize pack that I just know you’re going to love!
