Can't Get It Off My Mind

Vacation, that is. With Matt. And our BFFs. Without kids. None of them.

I am so excited for vacation, with Matt and our BFFs, without kids, that I now have a countdown clock on this blog (see... over there... to the right... ).

And in that many days, I will be here...

I lay in bed at night, dreaming of sitting at this pool while drinking overpriced adult beverages. 

I think I am so excited because this vacation is very "grown up" of us. We don't "do" expensive vacations and have not since our honeymoon, almost 15 years ago.  And NO FREAKIN' KIDS!!  I think once my friend Colleen fully accepts this realization, she will be okay with me using the word "freakin' ".  

We are more of the let's make a vacation out of going to Memphis to see my sister... or spending a week at my family's cottage on Lake Erie... or doing alot of inexpensive sight-seeing in Washington DC or Niagra Falls.  But thankfully, we have diligently put money away just for this trip. The other day, Matt asked how much I thought we would need in cash for the trip. The amount that came out of my mouth was CRAZY... but no holds barred on this one, people.  I even bought TWO...  oh  no... not one, but TWO new mail-ordered bikinis that cost me more than $10.00 for this trip.  Yes, I did.

Do you think if I keep staring at that countdown clock, it would move any faster?


  1. Did you say freakin' $1,000?
