A Last-Minute Vacation!

posted by Andrea | 04/2/2011

Dave and I are headed to Orlando, Florida — right now!

And while we certainly didn’t bring that much luggage, we are traveling with my aunt, uncle, cousin, and my cousin’s two kids…so the van is pretty full 🙂

We are so excited for warm, sunny weather {a huge change from West Michigan} and even though the 20-hour car ride might do me in, I know it will be worth it once we get down there.

Normally I would take the time to plan ahead, pack, maybe go shopping for a few new outfits, clean my house, do the laundry, and get all my ducks in a row before we go on any sort of vacation, but this time it’s different….

We actually JUST decided to take this trip on Thursday evening! {yup, about 36 hours ago!}

It’s totally unlike me to do something so “last minute” but we got an amazing deal on a gorgeous condo…and we’re saving money on gas by all driving down together. Plus, our condo has a full kitchen so we can eat many of our meals right there.

Thankfully, Dave is a teacher so he has Spring Break off of school, and I was able to rearrange my appointments and will do the rest of my work from Florida {yay for flexible jobs!}

Need-less-to-say, I wasn’t nearly as prepared as I would like to be, but did I finish most of the laundry, I cleaned out the fridge, and even managed to pack everything we needed in one small duffel bag!

We’re on our way and I’m so thankful for this fun opportunity.

More details from our trip next weekend…
