Travel Buddy

Super hot hubby and I went out for a nice dinner the other night sans kids and we came up with a great idea for a new job.  Not that either of us is looking for a new job but, we had an idea none the less.  

Prior to getting married, super hot hubby and I loved to travel.  We still love to travel but, we have very different styles of traveling.  My idea of a vacation is sitting on a warm beach, sun, drinks, and hot cabana boys.  His idea of a vacation is a trek through some wilderness carrying everything on your back for four days.  I lured him in with two backpacking trips while we were dating and now I say NO MORE (sucker)!!! Throw a couple of kids in the mix and he is lucky if he gets a hike out of me. Whenever we try to plan a trip we inevitably "discuss" where to go and what to do and reach zero agreement.  I say..."let's go to ______" (insert favorite tropical beach city here) and he says "oh that sounds great they have a volcano there that we can climb and it only takes 7 days." 

This got me thinking that we may have a reality TV show on our hands.  We could pick an exotic location and show all the best places to get a tan, where the best margaritas are sold, and the best place to get knock off shoes at a fraction of the cost as well as the best hiking treks, what bugs we can eat, how to start a fire in the rain, and other wilderness adventures.  I completely draw the line at carrying out everything (by everything...I do mean EVERYTHING!!!) You see, half the fun would be in showing how super hot hubby and I could compromise and both of us would be happy with the vacation.  Now, I clearly have a flare for being on TV but, my super hot hubby???  Not so much...so I would need to hire an "actor" to play him.  Now, who could that be??  I am thinking...oh, I don't know...someone like Matthew McConaughey, Matt Damon, or ________ (insert any man that is in the acting business with six pack abs here)???  Any of those will do so, if anyone has connections with any actors let me know and maybe I could contact them to see if they would be interested.

Pick Matthew McConaughey! At that point it wouldn't even matter what the show was about. ;-)

I'm SOOO agreeing with Theresa about Matthew McConaughey!! Who CARES what happens in the show as long as HE'S doing it?!

However, very interesting concept for a reality show. I was just tweeting last night (during my "Hubby's Outta Town: Twitter Mini-Marathon") that I'm a reality show junkie. Not all of them, mind you, but enough.

But getting back to what's important here~ you would be hanging out with Matthew McConaughey in a hot, steamy, tropical location!

Try pitching the idea to the networks and let me know...

you could borrow Zac Efron! He LOVES hiking..as long as it's in people's gardens. ME? I love nature...as long as there's a hotel in it.

And what if you rotate and have a different super hot stud every week! We could even vote on which one looks best with you.

I'll come on your trip. Sans the hiking, double the shopping.

Love this idea! Make sure whoever plays the hubs has washboard abs!

I agree with the 1st and 2nd commenter. With Matthew- we would love your show. I might not remember one thing you say or do, though. :)

Oh, my friend, how do I say this gently? I do not think you need a reality show focused simply on vacation spots. Think more broadly. Just focus on your life in general.

Trust me, people would watch...especially when your Mom comes to town.
