Vacation Review

We had a wonderful vacation! It was so nice to get away for awhile. The hardest part is coming back to the reality, as you all know! We started our vacation by going to the Braves game. It was about 99 degrees with a heat index of 102! However, we moved out of our sunny seats to ones in the shade so it wasn't too bad. We did get a sunburn just from the brief time we were in the sun! On our way from Atlanta to Valdosta there was a horrible storm. It took about twice as long for us to get to the hotel. The next morning we went to Jacksonville to board our ship. We spent a day at sea just reading and laying out. Next day we were in Key West. It just so happened that some of our family was down there at the same time. We got to see them for a few minutes! While in Key West we just spent a few hours walking around. We walked down to the southernmost point in the US. It is 90 miles to Cuba from that spot, and you can kind of see a hazy Cuba. The next day we spent in Nassau. We went to the beach for the day and enjoyed the sand and ocean! Finally, the last day was spent at sea. We spent most of the day napping in a shady chair. It was wonderful! Now since I have been back, we have been in an 8 hour a day week long class- so not much fun!

Summer Vacation!

Well I guess you can add me to the list of people canceling their vacation due to the oil. The hubby and I were supposed to leave middle of June and enjoy a nice relaxing 5 days in Panama City Beach, Florida. I just could not handle the thought of paying all that money and smelling oil the whole time I was down there. So..I canceled that vacation. I feel like "my in place of vacation" is just much better anyway! We are starting our vacation with a Braves game on a Sunday afternoon. My husband just loves the Braves, and Atlanta happens to be on the way to our destination. After the game we are driving a little further to Valdosta, Georgia where we are staying for the night (I don't know anything about it other than it gets us closer to our destination). Monday morning, which happens to be our anniversary (6-21-08) we will be boarding a Carnival Cruise in Jacksonville Florida for five days! We went on a cruise for a our honeymoon two years ago so I think it is super special! Our cruise will be going to Key West and Nassau! I cant wait to get away for a week! Here is a picture of us on our wedding day......

5 year reunion

My husband was our high school class president, so guess what that leaves us in charge of? You got it- class reunions! We had some people express an interest in a reunion before 10 years so we are having a 5 year this summer. First of all, it is insane to me that we have been out of school for five years. So anyway, with him in charge, I also am. We have decided to have an informal event. It is at a local park, and we are having a potluck meal. I have spent the last few days addressing envelopes to the 95 people in my class. Yes, I know, that is somewhat small. My husband has typed up the invitation, and I have typed up cards telling people what they should bring. My hope that is at least 75% of the invitations make it to the appropriate people, and at least half of the class decides to come. The rest of my night will be spent stuffing envelopes for my classmates. Here are some pictures of high school for you to enjoy...
