Within the next 3 months I'll be spending some time in each of these contraptions while I travel the world. Okay... maybe just travel around North America a little bit. I've decided to spend some money, burn up that use-it-before-the-end-of-the-year-or-lose-it vacation time, and have some fun! So I'm taking a few trips.
The first one is coming up in a couple of days. Me and my pal, Connie, are taking a road trip down south to visit some of the coolest blogger babes in the world. Who might that be? I guess you'll have to stay tuned to find out. I'm sure there'll be blogs lighting up from Canada to Mexico reporting the craziness that is sure to occur. It'll be the biggest, baddest, most bodacious, bloggy babe bash evah! There are blogger babes all over the country (and even one in Canada) packing their bags as I speak heading to party central for the weekend. I can not even begin to tell you how excited I am!! Only 2 more sleeps!
The second one is in September. I'll be spending a week laying on a beach in Mexico at an all inclusive resort. ALL inclusive. As in alcohol too. Woo hoo! I'm going with 2 other single mom friends (from our Single Adoptive Moms Group), their toddler daughters, and one grandma. You have no idea how much I need to do this. There are many margaritas waiting for me there. And maybe a really hot cabana boy.....
The third is scheduled for October. My BFF and I are heading to NYC for a long weekend. She's celebrating a very important decade birthday. (Not 20 or 30. But rhymes with the name Morty. LOL!) I love NYC! It's one of my favorite destinations. We plan on taking in the sights, catching a show, doing a little shoppy, and just re-connecting with each other. We haven't had a lot of time lately with our busy lives to just hang out together. So we get to devote several days to total and complete chick bonding with no interruptions. There's nothing better than girlfriends!
I'm really looking forward to all of this travel. I haven't taken a real vacation in a few years. I decided I need to get some of this out of my system before I have to settle down and be somebody's mom. And I decided to stop making excuses about why it should wait.
No more "I don't want to burn up my vacation days". Cuz truth is, I'm maxed out on carry over days and have to get rid of some.
No more "I don't want to spend the money". Cuz I worked my ass off for it! And I've got another year+ to pay off the second half of the adoption debt. I was responsible enough to pay off half already. So I'm taking a little break and spending some on ME!
No more "I can't wear a bathing suit until I lose some weight". Cuz lord knows I've been dragging my feet on this one so how much more time will I waste? Didn't I learn that time is not guaranteed? I need to get out there and enjoy life and all it has to offer...even if my ass is bigger than I'd prefer. Who really cares anyway? Nobody's worried about this but me so Let.It.Go.Krista.
Plus I freakin' deserve it!! So off I go to see the world...........
or at least just a little bit of it.
