December is Here!?

I can't believe December has started. Time is flying by, and I kind of wish it would slow down a bit. However, I have been looking forward to this month to come for a while, because we're finally going on VACATION! We haven't taken a vacation since 2009, so this trip has been highly anticipated.

We're going to Maui, for the first time, Dec. 12-19. I can hardly wait! It'll be a nice break from the cold weather, and my toes are anxious to burrow themselves in the warm sand. We're staying in our timeshare, which we had to book 18 months in advance to get a spot in Maui! We booked a 3 bedroom unit, and my mom is joining us, as well as our son, of course. :) Couldn't leave him! It'll be great to spend quality time together, as well as have the opportunity to have some dates with my hubby while we're away at the beach.  Thanks ahead of time Mom, for offering to watch Lil Man! :)

For as much of a planner as I am, I haven't planned a single thing for us to do there. I'm really just excited to get there, relax and play it by ear. I never used to be able to go somewhere without having a 'plan', but I'm changing. :) Whatever we do, I know it'll be a blast, so I'm not worried about it. Except maybe I should take care of the rental car part... Oops! Need to check that one off my to-do list!

After we have one glorious week in Maui, we immediately fly to CA to visit family for one week. I'm so happy we'll all be together for Christmas this year! This is the first Christmas without my dear dad with us, so it was really important to me that we get to be with my brother and my husband's family. I'm so looking forward to it. We get off the plane from Maui, wait maybe 2 hours, and then board the plane to Sacramento! Whew! Going to be a long travel day for all of us, especially my sweet little man. No one will judge me if I give him some Bendryl, right? ;) Seriously though... I'm going to, so don't judge me.

  1. While waiting to board the flight back from Portland I heard 3 moms having the Benadryl discussion. All I could think was "who could blame them?" haha
