I just looked up how cold it is here. It is 3 degrees. THREE, people! And it’s snowing. Again. That is unacceptable. I guess my trip to Florida couldn’t have come at a better time!
In less than 48 hours I will be here . . .
You see that beauty above? Yeah, that’s West Palm Beach. It’s sunny there. Hot, even.
Please don’t throw your woolen mittens at me just yet.
I would like to tell you that I’ll be staring at the beach for 4 days. But actually, I’ll probably be staring at my sister’s brand new baby as that is the whole reason for our trip. They live there. Like, permanently. Not fair, right?
It’s not really a tourist-y type vacation. It’s to see my new nephew and I’m more excited about him than the nice weather! But since she lives there I’m sure we’ll have plenty of chances to see WPB on future trips.
I have only been once before and it was a short day trip from Orlando. We saw the beach. It was a bit rainy and I was 15 weeks pregnant with Brigham and I felt like I was going to hurl for most of the day. And that night, on the way back to our hotel, I did hurl. In the car. Twice. Not exactly my idea of a fun vacation.
So, this is my second chance. My boys (and when I say that I mean my husband too) have to sit this one out. I am so sad to leave them. I have never left them overnight this long before. But it is in the best interest of everyone if I keep my boys away from the new baby, especially since Brigham is sick all the time. I just didn’t think a family vacation would work. I am nervous about being away from them for so long. But I know my sister and her new bundle will keep my mind occupied.
When we were in WPB in 2009 my sister pointed out the super upscale hotel that is fancy and extravagant and way too expensive for us to have a family vacation. But if I were to win the lottery I would choose to stay at The Breakers Palm Beach. A lovely resort, no?
A girl can dream. That’s why I decided to start Travel Bug Tuesday. I just love to daydream. Or torture myself. Whichever.
Anyway . . .
sunglasses = check
flip flops = check
xanax = check (you know I hate flying, right?)
See you later, alligator (apparently Florida has a lot of them)
