So what I thought would not be happening... is actually happening!!! I am so excited. I got a steal on a Hawaiian islands cruise in addition to the steal on airfare to Honolulu!!! I leave for Honolulu on April 28th and after 7 nights cruising around the Hawaiian islands, I will be back home on May 7th! I can't believe it! My travel agent was even in awe at the prices I found.

Big Fat NO for Hawaii

So it's not going to be Hawaii... too expensive but I did find the place I will hopefully stay at when I can afford it. I did get my airline reservations for July. I am still in need for something for the spring... I will figure something out eventually, hopefully soon though. Before I know it, spring will be there.

I am a Traveloholic...

I think I have a SERIOUS problem!!! I am looking for trips again. I know I will be in FL for the 4th of July, however, I do not have my tickets purchased. I need to make a decision. Airfare is going up and I need to do it quick, but I am wanting to wait in hopes that fares will drop. Not likely with my travel dates though. So I should book them tonight. We'll see. I am wanting to plan something for the spring (around the end of April) and am leaning toward Hawaii. But if I go to Hawaii, I want a nice hotel on the beach, not on Waikiki (too many people for me thank you). I would really like to stay at the Turtle Bay Resort on the north shore. But they are really expensive (about $250/night) and I still would need plane tickets into Honolulu (expensive, yet again) and am thinking if I am on the north shore, I really should get a rental car also... So this trip I am fantasizing about could cost me $2000 before I even get there!!!! It probably will not happen. I have also been considering another cruise... I have looked at some Caribbean sailings and am right now looking at Alaska (that would be early May). My fall trip, I have no idea right now, I just know I need to go somewhere. I get restless if I don't go somewhere every couple months. I think I have it down for my future plans... I will take trips in Jan/Feb, Apr/May, Jul/Aug, Oct/Nov... I have the vacation time to do it but I don't know how long I will have the $$$ to do it. I am just hoping that when I have children, they will keep me occupied enough that I will need feel the need to go somewhere all the time. I do want to travel with them though, I just know I won't be able to 4 times a year... unless I win the lottery and I am set for life with lots of extra spending money. Time will tell...

I was trying to check a price on a cruise to Alaska (Vancouver to Seattle) but the RCCL site is not working right... I will probably check tomorrow.

It's too late to really write a post, but I leave you with some pictures from my vacation... I could look at these all night and the rest of the week since it is cold and snowy. YUCK!

It's a Boy!!

L had her baby boy early Tuesday morning!!! M shares a birthday with C!!! I probably won't get to see him till after I get back from my trip but I suppose it will do. As L said, he will be here forever... Just thought I would post that on here.

Worked on packing tonight, not doing too bad. Still have to iron a couple things, and get the toiletries packed. I am ready for it. It is still snowing out. Started up again this afternoon around 2:30 or so. I can't for that week with a guarantee of NO SNOW!!!!!

Friday's Feast

Here we go.. on time this week...

What was one of the fashion fads when you were a teenager?

Two pairs of slouch socks (preferably colored) with the pants folded and tucked in or the pants tight-rolled (WHAT WERE WE THINKING!?!)

Name one thing you think people assume about you when they first meet you

That I am quiet and laid back.

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how hard do you work?

6... It all depends on my mood...

Main Course
If you were given a free 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl to sell anything you currently own, what would you advertise?

My pretty extensive book collection.

Fill in the blank:

I love to snuggle up in bed when it is cold.
