Road Trip: Babymoon Must Haves

I'm super excited about our upcoming babymoon. We decided to follow our friends' lead and not go too far from home. (Early in the pregnancy I hd grand plans of flying to Austin, TX, one of my favorite spots in the US, but our favorite airline Virgin America doesn't yet fly there. And the potential of TSA pat downs while pregnant sends shivers up my spine.) The theme for our babymoon is simple: Pampering and Comfort.

Unlike our December 2009 getaway to Jenner, CA, we'll be going to a well traveled tourist destination - Monterey, CA. We'll be staying at a hotel that has 24 hour room service, so hopefully we won't spend the majority of our trip driving in search of Eden-friendly food. The other benefit of room service is that someone other than cubes can fetch for me so he gets a break as well. We've also made dinner reservations - and confirmed them - to avoid being turned away by Maitre d's.

Besides food, this trip is all about relaxation. To ensure total comfort, as with our mini-moon to Calistoga, CA last year, we'll have a fireplace that we can curl up in front of and read.

Some of my must haves (from top clockwise) that I'll be packing into our Honda CRV are:
What are your must haves for comfort away from home?

Ciao Bella!
