Vacation Countdown

Just a few more days till we leave for vacation! I am sooooo excited! TJ and I last went on a vacation, just the two of us, in September 2005! WE ARE LONG OVERDUE! Every trip since then, there have been other family members present, or it hasn't been a "true" vacation because it's been a trip where one of us had work-travel. So anyway--super excited! My mom is coming up Friday night to stay with our dogs/housesit while we're away and we are leaving Saturday morning.

Here are some of the things I am looking forward to....
(Trip Advisor says these monkey drinks aren't truly that great, but they make an excellent photo op....so hello! of course I want one!)

Pool hammocks...yes please!

I've ALWAYS wanted to go parasailing, so I might give it a try! Why not?

Needless to say, it is very tough getting through this work week! I started putting clothes and such out last night...trying to get ahead on packing :) I purchased a few new items for my trip from Victoria's Secret, shown here (I'm not showing you THAT kind of stuff!)
There is a lazy river at the resort and I'd just like to say...I fully plan to use it for it's intended purpose: being lazy.

In other news, I went to the salon today for some pre-vacation grooming....and OH.EM.GEE. I might do a post on that later gals, but today is not that day. I took 3 Advil in advance which may as well have been vitamins. Once I decide whether it was worth it, I'll let you know.
