    I would love to have an entire weekend just to sew with my Mom. She is so creative and I miss living so far away from her.

  2. Marilyn Linnegar says:

    Hawaii, my husband has never been & I would like to go with him. He has been a huge support & help during my cancer treatment & other health issues over the past 2 years.

  3. Lynn says:

    My getway would be to the mountains (in Hawaii). As long as I am dreaming, might as well dream big. I’d love to see Paris, but I want more than a weekend. : }

  4. Kathe McMullan says:

    I would love to get away to my old Alma Mater; LSU in Baton Rouge. Haven’t been there since 1985. And it’s only 45 minutes from the Gulf Coast!

  5. Margaret Grice says:

    My dream weekend would be a trip to the beach. Listening to the surf and seagulls. How relaxing.

  6. Margaret Murray-Evans says:

    Let’s go to HAWAII!

  7. Constance M. Bunn says:

    I’d love to go to Mississippi and visit (and meet for the first time) sisters that were born after I’d moved up here (Indiana). Lots of relatives from the Louisiana area moved near the ones in Mississippi when Katrina came along….almost everyone I remember down there is “gone” now, but I’d like to meet the ones that were born after I’d left that area, aprox. 48 yrs. ago! One of only three things on my bucket list! If a family reunion doesn’t count, then I’d like to go on a cruise to Hawaii (a cruise is also one of the three things on my bucket list!) – a massage and relaxation on the beach in the warm sunshine….HEAVEN!!

  8. melody says:

    A kid free weekend where I could relax have fun with the hubby and have someone else clean the house and do all the house hold chores.

  9. Julie says:

    A weekend to create and relax uninterrupted! Maybe a short trip to a hotel to setup my sewing machine! Then get a massage and mani/pedi at the spa! A ME weekend!

  10. Melanie Maddex says:

    My dream weekend is fly to Napa Valley, wine tasting, spa and massage, shopping and then lovely dinner with my best friend who is feeling down.

  11. Carol Womack says:

    Santa Catalina–looks like the Mediterranean, but it’s only an hour from home.

    Oh, a weekend away anywhere would be great ! Nothing fancy, mountains or the Gulf, just some R&R, and quiet!! :)

  16. Trudy L says:

    Pretty much anywhere these days, it’s been years since we’ve been able to get away! But a weekend somewhere warm and sunny for sure! We’ve had a long and cold winter and spring!

  17. Robin says:

    anywhere warm and sunny would be great!!!

    a weekend away with my husband ANYWHERE… but preferably with room service (or delivery) and a mountain view and a hot tub would be great too

  27. Sandra Heath says:

    A camping weekend at Rathtrevor, in Parksville. It’s so beautiful there!

  28. judith poptanich says:

    I would make it with child friendly cheery material. Its first job would be to carry files and equipment on my daily trek through the 6 schools I work in as a Occupational Therapist. Then I would repack it for the weekend conferences I attend so I may learn more about the kiddos I work with. Finally finally finally it would be repacked again for the monthly or so trips I make to the coast, NJ or CT or RI, I live in a great area. Looks like a great multitask bag!

  29. maureen says:

    A week on the beach sitting in my chair watching the waves

  30. Tish says:

    Dream Weekend? Monaco, during the Formula One Races over Memorial Day. Luxury, fast cars, glamor, and history. NOTHING beats Monte Carlo for fashion, opulence and the most dramatic sport of them all.

  31. Annette says:

    Austin, TX is most reasonable for a weekend trip. But I would really enjoy a trip to Oregon to see my mom.

  32. Eileen K says:

    A weekend away anywhere would be great. Somewhere in the mountains where it is quiet and remote. Just a chance to be with by hubby, relax, read, sleep, and maybe a little hand sewing. Relaxation is the key!!
