Now that the warmer weather is in full swing, my family and I will be traveling a lot. We try to enjoy day trips every weekend in the summer as long as weather permits. While we try to incorporate a family trip each weekend, we reserve dates nights twice a month. Date nights can range from a restaurant, and movie to a concert. We both love rock music so we pay close attention to local venue schedules.
As our kids are getting older, we are finding more time to enjoy each other’s company. I am sure many of you might need to carry around toddler toys, and diaper bags. I want to shout from the roof tops that we are finally out of that stage. Now, whatever my husband and I carry around is solely for us. My kids range from 5-10 so they can independently take care of their own toys.
I’m always excited to check out what people carry in their purses because you ever know what you could be missing out on yourself. Seeing all the little gadgets, and beauty products have me marveling as what others deem crucial enough to tote around. Being a pretty simple girl, my purse is smaller that most and lighter. You might be surprised at my contents too!
5 Things We Do Not Travel Without
Ok, so I always need a purse or wristlet- these are my security “blankets” of sorts. Heading into a store with just a wad of money is mega uncomfortable for me, so a purse or wristlet is so needed! The same goes for my husband and his wallet. He definitely feels naked without that back pocket padding! Plus, we all need money or credit/debit cards to survive! Why not tote them in style?
Lip Gloss/Lip Balm
Having dry lips is not an option for my husband or I. While he always has a tube of lip balm in his pocket, I always have a pretty pink gloss in my purse or car. I don’t generally wear makeup so some moisturizer and gloss is my way of feeling put together.
Want to hear something mega weird and funny? I have not had my own phone in years! This year was the first time I decided to get serious about keeping a cell phone with me during my travels. I would always depend on Jared’s phone which he carries around religiously. Now that I have my phone, I have no idea how I survived these past 10 years!
A few years ago, I gave up adding white sugar to my coffees. I use all natural stevia-based sweeteners whenever possible. Sadly, hardly ANY restaurants of coffee shops are on board. That is why I keep 2 packets with me for coffee emergencies.
Don’t giggle at this one! My husband is a complete hot sauce freak. At first I would get insulted that my cooking was not up to par. He admitted that he loves the heat and boost of flavor sauces like El Yucateco® provide. El Yucateco® is the #1 authentic habanero hot sauce. Unlike the competition, El Yucateco® sauces are made from habaneros hand picked from their own fields, and are handcrafted to deliver rich flavor with just the right amount of heat. It is no wonder why El Yucateco® is the #1 consumer choice
Jared really loves all the El Yucateco® sauces which include Black Label Reserve and Red Chile Habanero.
Since variety is the spice of life, he likes to mix things up and swap out his hot sauce stash. Jared keeps one in his office, and I usually keep an El Yucateco® Hot Sauce in my purse for travel. The bottles are smaller and convenient to tote around. Plus, flavors like the Black Label Reserve can easily transform boring dishes like pasta salad into yummier meals. Got to love the fact that you can easily add spice on the go!
The Black Label Reserve is created from fire roasted habaneros and has a unique flavor and appearance. This sauce is El Yucateco®’s newest addition and best used when cooking. This sauce has an earthy smoke flavor without the sweetness of a chipotle sauce. The smokey flavor of this sauce brings depth, habanero flavor and the perfect amount of heat to any dish without adding an overpowering smoke taste. Best paired with red meats and hearty stews or chili. Also amazing with chocolate! No artificial coloring added.
Their Red Habanero Hot Sauce is made with fresh red habanero peppers, tomato, and select spices and seasonings. This all purpose sauce packs a little more kick then the average hot sauce but with far less vinegar, so you get the true flavor of the pepper when you add this sauce to any dish. Their red habanero is a great fit for everything from a Bloody Mary to Shrimp Cocktail or Wings.
El Yucateco® Hot Sauce can be found at retailers like Walmart nationwide. El Yucateco® will now be available at select stadiums and The House of Blues, and since they are music lovers just like us, they want to give you the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience.
