I'm Going Somewhere WARM!!

Mexico, here I come (with Joshua)!! We have wanted to go on an all-inclusive vacation to somewhere warm for a long time. It seemed like something that might happen in about 5 years, until we discovered how cheap you can get these vacations! We decided it was something we could do sooner than later. In January, we started dreaming and talking about this more seriously. After weeks of looking at vacations and resorts on-line, we finally picked a date, found the "perfect" place and booked our getaway! Joshua's boss was really flexible and great about the whole thing, so we were able to do what really worked best for us. The bottom line is, we are headed to Puerto Vallarta to the Palladium Vallarta Resort and Spa! And we're leaving tomorrow!! Yay! At 6 a.m. in the morning! Boo! That means we actually have to be at the airport at 4 a.m.! But, I know, NONE of you are feeling sorry for me! :-) We'll be gone for 8 days, so we'll be back on the 22nd. Just wanted to let you know when you didn't hear from me for awhile! Oh wait, that's just normal..... :-) I'll post lots of pictures when we get home. The kids will be in the care of Grandma and Grandpa Knaak and will be spoiled rotten by the time we get back! Joshua'a parents were able to come to our house for the week. I was really glad because I think that will just be easier for everyone. Yesterday, I asked the kids if they would miss us while we were gone. They both gave me a hearty "No!" I said, "Good! Cause I don't want you to be sad while I'm gone!" They are so excited to be spending the week with G and G! When I put Sara to bed tonight, she blew me a kiss (something we exchange every night as I walk out her door). She said it was a special kiss that I could pack in my suitcase! My heart melted! So, I think it will be a fun week for all!

And how do you like my new blog look?!!! Isn't it beautiful?! See Brandy's Bloggy Designs button on the right sidebar of my blog. She did an awesome job and I LOVE it! (Brandy wouldn't rest until I said that I LOVED it!) I think I was a challenging customer for her, but she was great! Thanks for all the hard work, Brandy! I hope all of you enjoy the fresh look! I'll be back in one week!
