Exactly 11 more days until Mr. Wonderful and I kiss the monkeys goodbye, hop on a flight, and take off for Las Vegas!!
My hubby is fortunate enough to attend a conference in Las Vegas for an entire week...I am fortunate to have a wonderful guy bring me too! I'm not staying for the entire week, only 2 or 3 days but yay! I'll take it! I'm looking forward to just lounging beside a pool reading a book, and when he's not attending some of the workshops we'll be touring and gambling. I can't wait!
To "prepare" I'd like to rent a few Vegas movies. Even though Showgirls is supposed to have gone down in the history books as one of the worst ever...I'd still like to see it.
I do believe that couples should take yearly vacations, somewhere where it isn't quite simple to just run home after an evening. A weekend getaway in a town 2 hours away isn't the same. It's nice, but it doesn't provide that escape. Personally, my vacation paradise is somewhere hot, sunny, colourful, and decadent. I have no interest whatsoever in tours of old run down towns that have sooo much history and beautiful churches (really? who cares??). Just give me a beach, turquoise water, a nice breeze, my Mr. Wonderful and best of all...no obligations! Like a waking dream!
A family vacation is next on my to do list. As soon as the twins are old enough, I would love to rent a winterized cottage for a week. Something secluded. I'm picturing a winter wonderland getaway. Family time, skiing, skating, snowman making, snoeshoeing, then an evening curled up by a wood stove, in cozy jammies playing board games and drinking hot chocolate! I'd say 4 or 5 more years. But then again...this would be a great romantic, couple time getaway.....hmmmmm Mr. Wonderful, we need to discuss further!
