Friday Faves :: Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind + Road Trip Essentials

August 31, 2012

Today’s the start of my five day weekend and a mini-road trip to Keller, TX to see my dad’s side of the family. I love seeing my younger cousins and it’ll be nice to catch up with the fam. Bonus: My parents will also be in Keller and I’ll be driving my mama back down to Austin on Sunday. Good times. I love me some roadtrips…and this one will be no exception. Here are my top 5 road-trip essentials:

5. Snacks. Right now I’m digging sesame roasted seaweed (not nearly as awful as it sounds) and Kind Bars.
4. Thirst Quenchers. I used to love those 40 oz cans of Green Tea you can snag for $1 at the gas station until I realized one can is, like, 10 servings. Seriously?? It’s so deceiving. (Ok, I still love them. Don’t tell).
3. Laugh Tracks. I love listening to stand up comedy or books on tape on long car rides (Side note: Listening to stand-up comedy when you’re at the gym is not quite as awesome, especially when the girl on the eliptical next to you gives you a permanent stink eye for chuckling. Trust me, it gets awkward reaaaaally fast). I’ve got Bill Burr cued up for my drive today.
2. GPS. There’s a very high likelihood I’ll veer off-course. Like, a 1 in 5 chance. So my odds aren’t great but sometimes being directionally challenged has it’s perks!
1. Never-ending supply of 90s music. I’m talking about Smashing Pumpkins, Third Eye Blind, Lisa Loeb, Barenaked Ladies, and Laryn Hil. You should probably assume that also includes the entire Jock Jam series, too. Booyah!

Do you have road-trip essentials? What are your must haves?
