An epic journey down and up I95 left lots of time for reflection (and possibly a new affinity for country music).  Here are the top 10 items that made our best-of travel list.
In no particular order:

Cosmo Wasabi Stroller by Combi
I was elated to discover that this stroller was still on the market eight years after I purchased my first.  Having had a fleet of strollers over the years, this one is THE best for on-the-go.  It's incredibly light, allows the baby to sit up and see the world, or recline and snooze (lucky duck).  Fun fact, it amazingly folds in half and stands in place instead of playing the slip and slide game.

DVD Player
For the older crew a pair of these was the ticket to some peace and quiet for all. My daughter was gifted these cuties which were oh-so-sweet and her brother managed just fine with this set.  I never knew about the three-in one movies but they worked their magic too.

No snapped or dull crayons in sight with these around - backseat artists unite!

Pocket Rocket
Packed to the gills with baby's goodies - wipe clean in an instant.

Jack Rogers Sandals
Only pair to pack.  These bad boys in gold go from beach, pool, or evening stroll to a night on the town.

The Boat and Tote
This bag never ever disappoints.  The large size served perfectly as a family overnight bag for a motel pit-stop en route (dopp kits and all) allowing the trunk to stay untouched until the final stop.

Road Atlas
I am a Garmin Girl, but there are those times when you must have the real deal.  Never leave home without!

Party Cube
Aptly named, this little guy brings the music anywhere, anytime.

Nights shared with a pack and play? Never fear - with this little light your favorite vacation read is still safe and sound.


Happy Trails!

For all the past memories I have of unsuccessful attempts to naturally dye Easter eggs with vegetables etc., the MARTHA STEWART + AVERY Home Office line at Staples is a home run.  According to Madame M, "Developing this line has been a wonderful opportunity to focus on what busy, modern households and home-based entrepreneurs really want and need in a home office organization system".  She has most certainly addressed every possible need and more. My personal favorites are the aqua binders, journals, boxes and accessories - which can all be customized with various inserts of calendars, dividers, and the like.  The adhesive labels are amazing and the peel on/off refrigerator labels for important numbers, menu planning, and tracking dates are genius - and solve the pesky problem of non-magnetic doors.  This is just a snippet of what's waiting at Staples for some customized home organization - definitely a good thing!
