What's a "Stay-cation" you ask?

I was tagged by Tres Posh Preppy to describe my perfect stay at home vacation, a "stay-cation". Here goes nothing!

I live in a small town in CT roughly 45 minutes from NYC. We've only been here 7 months so we are still discovering new things to do and all that this area has to offer. That said, this is what my perfect stay-cation would consist of. I would start the weekend by crossing my fingers that the Mr. made it home before 6 on Friday night. (I'm laughing out loud at that but hey a girl can dream) If he did, I would set up our patio table outside with linens and candles and have Lobsters and Steamers. I'm torn which I would rather have with that dinner; beer or a snazzy, summer cocktail. Either one would hit a home run I'm sure. Then, the little man would go down to sleep before 7:30 (again, ha-ha) and we'd have the rest of the night together. Saturday I'd most likely pack a lunch and head to the beach with my boys and spend the day there. In a perfect world, after the little mans nap my parents would arrive to babysit him at night while the Mr. and I headed into NYC for the night and enjoyed a nice dinner and night out. Then Sunday, somehow, someway I'd love to sleep until 9am and then have breakfast in bed. Then, I'd hit a Matinee with the Mr. with tons of sour gummy candy in hand of course! After the movie I'd pick up take-out for dinner so I didn't have to cook or clean. Sounds pretty good to me. Sign me up!

We're in SW Connecticut (just moved here three weeks ago), too, and taking a cue from Ch. 12 for our day's entertainment. They have a list of local places to visit buried somewhere on their site.

Sounds like a glorious stay-cation!
