We’re Going On Vacation!!!!

February 11, 2014

We are lucky to have a great group of friends that we have been vacationing with for the last few years.

We’ve been to Mexico a couple of times with this group of friends, we’ve been to Memphis and Nashville with this group, we’ve been to the lake, and last year, we all took a trip to the Dominican Republic, and stayed at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino! We had an awesome vacation, but we also had a little unfortunate situation that led to us getting our money back AND…..getting a Free Vacation this year!!!

You can read all about last year’s vacation HERE!

All I can think about now is doing this again……



and maybe a little of this….



Vacation is a great time to enjoy some peace, not think about the stresses at home, and just relax. But I know on vacation, when I’m lying there on the beach, my mind gets busy thinking about what I am going to work on when I get home. A project, something to paint, something to organize, a blog post….whatever. I already have some ideas in my head about things I want to plan and do, and I’m looking forward to sharing those with you next week, when I get home.

I’m officially taking a week off!

I’ll tweet some stuff so you can follow me on Twitter!

And I’m certain I’ll post a few pic’s on Instagram, so follow me there too!

I got to visit Charlotte for a few minutes last night, and I’m on my way to see her now……

Can you even stand how cute she is??? She is going to look so different in a WEEK!!!
