It's Official. I Need To Get My Rear in Gear for Vacation!



It’s official. 

After talking about it for over a year now, and researching, and getting advice from friends, family and total strangers (hey, thanks random guy from Float at Hard Rock, who told me that Costa Rica is full of prostitutes at night!) looking at countless flights and resorts and hotel packages, and feeling slightly sick with mommy-guilt about laying down so much cash that could go in O's 529 plan...we booked our trip to ......

Belize.

We need this trip.  And a happy mommy and daddy make for a happy O.  Plus, I do NOT feel guilty at ALL leaving him behind in the amazing care of Gramma and Grandpa (my grandparents) during the day (which they call "day camp") and Nanny (aka Danna in O-speak) and Papa at night (my parents).  I don't even know how to write out how he says Papa.  It's like "Puh-pahhhhh".

See how the guilt makes me make everything about him???  Anyway, I was saying...

Next month, we’re headed to the island of Ambergris Caye for a week of white sand and aqua water.  We found a perfect resort, and thanks to off-season pricing, got a semi-good deal. 

If you are like me two years ago and are wondering where is Belize and why I'm dying to go there...see below.

And if you watch The Bachelor, remember this??

Or this?? Ben/Courtney...gross.



Now, all I need to do is get my butt into vacation gear and work out that much harder. Blah.  I hope that makes the time go by quick, because I'm beyond excited!!

xoxo
