So in two weeks I am going on a much needed 7 day vacation. I consider myself lucky that since our second son was born my husband has made this vacation an annual priority (mainly because he fears for my sanity with 2 toddlers and would like to preserve some shred of that sanity for when the boys go off to college and he has to be alone with me). We go every year at the same time in February. The first time we went to the Bahamas and got married which led to the consequent vacations being around the same date so we can also celebrate our anniversary. The second trip was in St. Lucia were I experienced zip lining, total rush. This year due to the economy we are staying state side and will be attending Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Sleeping in, getting tipsy here and there, and BEADS! What more can a woman ask for? The majority of these vacations are spent resting no matter where we go. Last year all of our activities were done the last two days of our stay and I have no doubt this year will be very similar.

What do we do with the kids you ask? Well, we contemplated leaving piles of food throughout the house and several accessible diapers then asking a neighbor to check on them from time to time but evidently that is illegal and only allowed with pets, so we have a grandma come in to do the heavy lifting. This year it will be my husband’s mom. She does a great job and spoils my boys to no end. Though I will have to do major reprogramming after 7 days of grandma I am totally psyched to get away from cleaning, (some) cooking, and diapers. I will miss my boys but now that they’re 2 and 3 I know they are okay and figure they need a break from me as well. I also love to be able to call home and talk to my 3 year old on the phone. He is so funny and cute over the phone.
I will be posting about the happenings when I get back. We’re renting a car so there should be some very interesting stories that come out of that. No matter what happens I am very excited to get outta here. Vegas is nice but can be a little boring after 12 + years, so come February 15th I will say Bon Voyage to my little neon lit, free cocktail provisioned town for a new neon lit, free bead provisioned one (temporarily at least).
