Our Last Big Vacay for a while

As many of you know vacation time is very important to Joe, mainly to Vacation Joe. With a baby on the way we of course had to get in 1 last big vacation. Don't get me wrong I'm sure we well still have many weekend trips before October but apparently with a new house and a baby life just got a lot more expensive. After many months of debating if we could afford one last big vacation we decided we can. Joe's friend Neil's parents are sailing their way around the Caribbean for who knows how long and invited Neil and Catie to come visit, and then Neil invited us to come visit. SO we're going on down to St. Lucia and sailing around for 6 days. I'm so excited because it is something we have never done before. We were thinking about Hawaii but we can go to Hawaii anytime, sailing around islands doesn't happen to often. So hopefully Neil wasn't joking about us coming because our tickets are booked and I'm looking for swimsuits. We are going the end of May so I'm sure swimsuits aren't going to be my favorite thing to wear being all nice and round, but I think I can suck it up for a couple of days. I'm excited for summer and sun and visiting new islands we haven't visited before!

I do love CA but this has gone too far

Everyone who reads this blog knows that I grew up in California in the Santa Clarita Valley. I loved growing up there! I loved riding my bike everyday down to Lucky's and get a soda and hang out at the park. I loved that we could just play outside and climb our hill for hours and no one had to worry about us being safe. I loved the weather all year long and how close everything is. Even though it may take an hour to get to the beach I loved that once I got my license my friends and I could just drive down to the beach every weekend and relax. Yes everything about Santa Clarita was amazing, but now it has taken a turn for the worse. Yes this is a true story but it has gone from SCV to Awesometown...PROMISE! That is so embarrassing how can you look at a place called Awesometown and take it seriously. Even though I love California I am glad I moved before it turned into high society people living in Awesometown. Yes when I went home last week I found out the news and was embarassed but had to laugh at the same time. Whoever decided to name to place Awesometown, should really reconsider looking into another line of work

LOOK...it's even on their website and they have billboards of it!
