Away We Go

Tonight, hubby and I booked a vacation.

Our first real live vacation since our honeymoon.

We have been to visit family and gone on little weekend things here and there. But we have not taken a just for fun super awesome vacation since we spent a lovely six days in Hawaii celebrating our marriage.

ALL of our time and money has gone to making babies. We didn't want to use time just in case we became pregnant or needed it for a treatment. We didn't want to use money because it just kept leaving us to go and visit the fertility clinic, usually for nothing. We spent and spent and spent and hoped it would lead to something. We would never do something as expensive as IVF and then we did it. We would not do it again, we said, but I was already financially planning number two because I just knew our IVF failed. Our life was frozen.

We then needed everything we had planning two babies, all the time and money we could find.

But tonight we decided it was time for a change. I never even really wanted to go on vacation during that yucky time we shall not speak of because I knew I couldn't truly enjoy it. I'm a cheapskate and didn't want to pay money for stuff I couldn't enjoy.

We will be enjoying seven nights cruising the Caribbean! I mean really and completely enjoying because I'm happy now and I don't feel guilty for enjoying life.

Countdown: 2 months, 1 week, and 2 days to go!!

There is another countdown going and it is to the babies first birthday, which I am busy planning. Only in my mind though, I actually need to start doing stuff ASAP.

Can you believe my monkeys will be one year old's in less than 4 months????


  1. Good for you guys! We just started thinking of maybe a cruise. Never been on one, but then we saw the last episode of "Undercover Boss" where it was Norwegian Cruiselines and it looked awesome! What a fabulous thing to countdown to!

  2. That's fabulous! Some time for you and hubby will be so nice. We LOVED our cruise to the carribbean we took in 2006. Have fun!

  3. vacation...ahhh...what's that? You'll have to tell me! hahaha! I hear ya about planning fun things. Are you gonna miss the monkeys while you are away? Of course!

  4. A vacation sounds wonderful! I agree with you. When we were trying to get pregnant I didn't want to spend alot of money to go away. I knew I would be too worried about all TTC crap and wouldn't enjoy myself. Over our first anniversary we did go away, nothing expensive though, and of course I was ovulating. And of course I was convinced I would get pregnant. Yah. We know how that always works out! :)


Thanks for stopping by! Sorry, no anonymous comments, if you can't put your name on it it's just no fun!
