Off We Go!

October 19, 2012

6:30 am.


I’ve actually been up since 5 but that’s because Sam goes to work then and my mind wouldn’t shut off about all the stuff I still had to do for our trip.

Today we’re driving to San Antonio, a 9 hour drive if we never stopped. But of course, we will. And so I’m hoping to get there this evening sometime. Then tomorrow it’s off to the Port of Galveston – another 4 1/2 hours. Then we leave!

I’m pretty excited. I’ve got little toys and books for Bella, we splurged on a DVD player for her with little pink headphones. I have Emma by Jane Austen on my phone to listen to in the car (we have Bluetooth so I can call people as well – yay!). Snacks, lunch, the potty, Lifeproof for the phone, extra charger, party dresses and swim suits – I think we’ve got it all.

Once we leave, we’re headed to the Grand Caymans, Costa Maya, and Cozumel. Can I just tell you, informing my credit card of that yesterday (so they don’t place a hold on it) was a little thrilling. Like I was some kind of fancy jet-setter who just threw out words like “islands” and “cruise.”


Anyway, I’ll have very limited internet access while I’m away – and some of the time none at all. I’ll still have posts scheduled on Babble and guest posts here from some of my VERY favorite people who are bringing on hard topics and amazing recipes (tamales? pumpkin soup? yes.).

And of course, when I get back you’ll hear and see all about it. Until I don’t have service I’ll be Instagraming the heck out of it all (I’m lifeasaSAHM), and then if I get it again at any point and it won’t cost a small fortune, I’ll do some updates too.

See you in 9 days!!

    If you get a chance you should check out Buckets and Boards. They are a really cool, fun show group from Branson but I went to college with one of the guys. They contract with Disney cruises and perform on about 1/2 of their cruises…they are REALLY entertaining! Have lots of fun!
