Our other exciting news was we booked our trip that we have been talking about for 2 years now. One night almost 2 years ago, when Aaron was on his way home from school he called- after walking back to his car in the cold and wet- and said that when he is done with school we are going somewhere warm and sunny, and just the two of us- no matter what. Aaron and I don't get out much, and since we've had kids we've only spent the night away from them like twice and we don't get baby sitters very often either (I know, we are totally lame). So this was an exciting prospect to us. So last night after we knew he passed his presentation we did it. We booked out trip! And I am SO excited! At the end of January/beginning of February we are going to spend 9 days in Hawaii!!! We will be celebrating finishing grad school, our 9th anniversary, Valentine's day, and my 30th (gasp!) birthday.
And then 3 nights in Kauai, here. (This one I am really excited about, it's a 5 star resort, we don't stay at places like that.)
My mom is going to come down and watch the kids. I actually called her after I talked to Aaron that night 2 years ago and "booked" her. Yeah, we really don't get out much. I am just so excited, I ordered a new swimsuit and now we need to start working out like crazy. I've vowed to be "treatless" through the holidays and until our trip (gotta fit into that new swimsuit). I've got 2 weeks under my belt so far. I am trying to get used to not having sugar coursing through my veins.
That is our exciting news! And I am SO excited to have my husband back and to go on our trip!
