I've been a really good girl.
Yes, I've been pinching pennies, cutting back on the Macy's habit, scaling back on the baby gear buying, saving up all of my vacation and sick leave at work and considering part time employment to add to the coffers. I've also been reading parenting and adoption books, educating myself about quilt-making (for the Bai Jia Bei) and getting back into the gym to strengthen my baby-picking-up muscles. All in anticipation of how life will change once baby-girl moves in. Because....as everyone reports with the wisdom of 10,000 Old Wives....EVERYthings gonna change.
OK, I get that & I'm up for that. And, a girls gotta have fun, too.
I've been enviously reading as quite a few of my blog-friends have mentioned trips that they have taken or are planning to take. For example, there's Millicent's trip to Croatia, Carrie's trip to Paris, Rhonda's trip to Scotland, Jen just got back from Vegas, Holly just got back from the Oregon coast, Kim just got back from Africa, Barb's planning Greece and of course there's M3's trip to Austrailia. And, what about the crazy road trips to Detroit and Florida that Connie is organizing??
Many very cool vacations. People enjoying their pre-referral lifestyles.
I want a piece of that.
So jzboy & I are thinking Mexico. Seems like it would be relatively inexpensive. We would be more than happy with modest accomodations close to the playa. Anyone have a recommendation? Our recently married, well traveled friends suggested Isla Mujeres. Any other thoughts?? Think cheap....and non-touristy. Good food. Not too hot.
Just the thought of it warms my heart & my toes (its cold this morning). Thanks for any thoughts...
