This is what I call perfect

Once again I am excited to be taking part in Stasha's Monday Listicles.  This week's topic is 10 things that make a perfect vacation.  Since we took an amazing 2 week holiday back in September to California, I thought that I would talk about the 10 things that made it perfect to me. 1.  Hotel rooms that we didn't have to clean up and had (mostly) comfy beds.  2.
