Spring Break 2012

First I just want to say that I must really love my family because I just spent an entire week on a blow up mattress during my first vacation in over a year....yea for Spring Break 2012!

On another note, I had a fantastic and relaxing time this spring break despite the less than fantastic sleeping arrangements. I got to hang out with my sisters and parents doing all sorts of fun things! We went shopping, to the movies, out to eat, and more shopping! Yesterday, we spent almost four hours at the Frisco mall...and the most amazing thing? Well, my dad was the "winner" of the day. He bought more clothes yesterday than I believe he has every bought in his entire life! Yes, it's true! He got new slacks, shirts and even an Easter suite that is pretty legit :) I was really proud of the fact that he made it so long in the mall with no "frown faces" or slumping shoulders! Way to go Dad!

Finally, the most amazing thing happened yesterday that I have to share with everyone! We were sitting at lunch (Olive Garden goodness!) and were discussing the Christmas vacation we are finally going to take after saying we were going to for about five years! When mom asked what we wanted to do, I was the one who had all the ideas! I mentioned Italy, Greece, Prague, a Cruise and Hawaii, which are all places that I would love to go! After a bunch of nodding and "yeah, that sounds fun" we still hadn't gotten anywhere in our decision making...then dad mentioned, "what about Tennessee?" which promptly got him several dirty looks from us girls, I mean, come on, Tennessee?? for a big family vacation!!!! No way! We then lapsed into silence for a while, continuing to eat our meal. Finally, I mentioned that I had seen an advertisement for Disney's new Aulani Resort and Spa in Hawaii. Ding, Ding, Ding! The light was lit! My dad was really interested in a combination of Hawaii and Disney, which is pretty much our favorite vacation! We began to discuss it and by the end of the day, mom had talked to the Disney people and we were booked for a Disney Hawaiian vacation over the Christmas Holidays!

Can you believe it??? Disney Hawaii here we come! Only 9 months to get bathing suit ready!

Anyway, I have had a great Spring Break Vacation and look forward to maybe writing a little bit more on my blog this year! Stay tuned!
