Road Trip!!

Sarah Kate, Austin and I are loadin' up and heading to Florida to spend a week with Emily and Wendell on Friday. Can you EVEN guess how excited we are?

I have to work one more double shift tomorrow and sleep fast on Friday and then when I get up Friday afternoon, we're heading out. Austin is on Spring Break next week and we decided it was the perfect time to go. Sarah's morning (all day) sickness has almost completely subsided and she's up for it.

My Mom and Dad winter in Florida (Lake Wales), so we'll be heading down to spend two days and a night with them also. Austin will get in some good fishing time with Grandpa, hopefully. If not, he'll enjoy tooling around in Grandpa's golf cart in their little retirement park. We'll be hitting Disney at least one day as well. Other than that, I plan on vegging and just enjoying my kids!

Somehow, I have to figure out how to get all the laundry in this house done, pack our bags, make sure Jimmy and Patrick have enough grub to hold them over and clean the house before I go to bed tonight. Oh well, I always work better under pressure.


The amazing Brandi of Excess Baggage is working on a new template for my digs here. I'm so envious of the creative people who can do this. I can't wait to see what she comes up with, so stay tuned for the big reveal.

Have a great trip. Hope you can relax and truly enjoy.

I saw the draft template she was working on. You need to be worried. It had hairy fat naked dudes, a picture of your hospital administrator, and baby seals being clubbed on it.

Ok, not really;)

Running to change my blog password before Brandi sees this and gets revenge;)

LOL at Chris's comment!

I had to look up Lake Wales to see where it is. Looks like you'll be a ways south and west of where we stay in New Smyrna Beach. I'm so antsy for our annual Florida vacation (not till July this year!), and I know you'll have a wonderful time! It's still so cool in the Midwest, and some Florida warmth sound heavenly right now.

If you don't post again before you leave, have a safe and FUN trip!

Hugs, Beth

Oh My! I used to live in Plant City just a couple of years ago and several years before that I lived near what was Baseball City... and my brother still lives near Winter Haven! I know the Lake Wales area well! Enjoy your stay. The weather should be beautiful.

LOL @ Chris' comment too! Have a WONDERFUL trip Melissa (and I know you will). I work better under pressure too (of course!).

I look forward to hearing all about it when you get back!

Sleep fast. That is lightning in a bottle if it actually makes you feel rested, but I am doubting that. Take some AWAKE and some lattes with you. Laundry to do, hmm, can't you just take that with you too?;-0

I saw a post of yours on Paula's blog and thought I'd pop over to check out your blog. I love all of your flower photos and I've read a few of your posts.
