9 days/8 nights in heaven...
I just booked out summer beach trip to Seaside! I'm giving up 4 days in NYC for this trip and it's totally worth it. One thing that this recession has done for me is to make me cherish my family and the time we have together. I love that we're making memories for our daughter by doing things like this with her. That's worth a whole lot more than a four day shopping spree for me...and it's a hell of a lot cheaper if you shop like I do!
We're staying in a house that we've never stayed in before called American Dream, which is fitting since we're going over the 4th holiday. We got started in our planning late and there weren't many houses left, including all of our faves, but this one is cute. It's red, white and blue and looks very comfy and well-loved. Just what you want in a beach house, IMO.
I'm am SOOOOO looking forward to this trip.
