gone til August

Wednesday, June 9, 2010
Sometime in the spring, the BF and I decided we wanted to take a trip to Chicago sometime this summer. We have several friends that live there and we wanted an expensive trip away like we did when we went to Boston in the fall.

We are so busy. I looked ahead at our schedules and seriously until Aug. 8 is the first weekend we don't have something already planned.

Wonder what is taking up all our time?

You guessed it - weddings, showers and bachelorette parties. Now to all my lovely friends who read this and whose party I'm attending, there's no need to get mad. I appreciate you and can't wait to attend your wedding/shower/party, but I'm also allowed to share that my weekends revolve around these festive occasions.

They truly do.

Years ago, I remember when all my summers contained was the sun, the beach and a few cocktails. I still try to lay out as much as I can but I find that my summer flies by so incredibly fast. In Cleveland, I treasure my summer because it means sunshine and warm weather, something I otherwise don't experience a lot of in this climate.

However, we are planning a couple's vacation to Puerto Vallarta for the end of September.

Ahhhhhhh, serenity now.

I'm sure Puerto Vallarta will be worth the wait! Great way to extend your summer.

Can I come...d'oh...never mind...ahhhhhhh, wishful thinking.

SAME! Although I'm kinda happy I've grown out of the weddings/showers stage of my life. Now, it's just every weekend, something is squeezed in. Pair that with my BF being out of town every week for work and it's exhausting just thinking about doing ANYTHING.

BTW, we're going to Boston in July. Your recommendations are appreciated. :)

I'm not QUITE there yet... only a couple weddings this year. I feel like the summer of 2012 is probably going to be my downfall.
