We are going on vacation! Back to Destin. Thank you hubby for telling me, "we're going, make the reservation" when I was on the fence about the whole thing. I just didn't want to spend the money. It will be money well spent. Plus, K will be out of school on Fall break. We had such a fantastic time last year when we went. I was bummed when Brian said he couldn't get off for vacation in October. So, this morning I ordered Miss K and I both new swimsuits. The ones she has are all too small and since I've lost almost 50 pounds...both of mine are too big. (go me!) I got her this way cute mermaid one at Land's End. I also got mine at Land's End, but it's just a plain black tank suit. I've heard a lot of people say how great these suits are. Hope they are right. Hope the suits fit both of us and I hope they get here in time. I need to get working on my list of things to do/pack/schedule for our trip. I've already got my pet sitter lined up. I'm lucky enough to have a young lady in my neighborhood who loves my dog. She walks Maxie twice a week for us. And she enjoys taking care of my bad cats too. She's wants to be a vet when she grows up, so she likes doing the pet sitting thing. Plus, her mom is one of my bunco friends, so I totally trust her. But, before I can really get into my plan making. I need to get ready for bunco. The only thing I've done so far is get all the prizes and my paper goods for dinner. I have no idea what I am cooking. I went from chili to to tacos and now I am thinking of just taking the easy way out and ordering pizza! And I've got cleaning to do. Lord do I have cleaning to do!

Well...I've wasted too much time on here today. Got to get going. Have to pick K up from school in an hour.

blog ya later!

How exciting for you going to Destin again! Brian's cousins go there and love it too. We will need to go check it out sometime. On another note, I would take the easy way out too and order pizza and if you have a Pizza Hut nearby you could always order pasta instead. Just a thought.

Land's End suits are the best. Worth every dollar. Enjoy your trip!

I know that my comment will be too late...but I had baked potatoes at one of my buncos and it was SO easy. Just buy the biggest potatoes you can find, wrap them in foil, and put in the oven. When your guests get there...let them fix their own potato...I set out cheese, sour cream, bacon bits, butter, shredded chicken, chives, etc. They LOVED it :) And I didn't have to cook anything!!! Hope you guys have fun on your VACATION :)

I have a couple of Land's End suits. They are great and they hold up to salt water and the pool.
