11 Weeks and Counting

No...I'm not pregnant. 

But.... We did it. We finally did it. I almost don't even want to type it out lest it disappear in a whiff.....


So I'll whisper it.

We booked our flights and hotel for our vacation to St. Maarten!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOO...I mean...whoooooo!



I am. Beyond. Excited.


We had to push the date by two weeks from my original week past Chris' original plan (we had apparently failed to communicate about dates) because the price of flights was better. All in all I think I found us a great deal and barring any kind of weather tragedy I think it's going to be AWWWWWESOOME!!! 

We've got 11 weeks before we leave. Which is a painfully long amount of time....but also long enough for me to find my sunglasses, buy a new bathing suit, and procure a fun floppy sun hat which I will wear while laying on a beach with a cocktail in one hand and a bottle of SPF 75 in the other (for Chris. He's gonna burn like a forgotten burger at a BBQ)...hehee....YAY!!

Wanna see where we're gonna stay? Wanna? Wanna? Okay! Stop hassling me! We're staying at The Grand Case Beach Club.

All the reviews we read said the same thing- that is was a quiet part of the island with not so crowded beaches and an easy walk to good restaurants. All of which sounds awesome to us. Not to mention we will be able to afford an ocean view...which I didn't realize made me so happy until I booked it.....ahhhh...I can hear the sound of the waves now....

I had a dream the other night that we were on vacation and I woke up happier than I had in YEARS.

So amazing and so exciting!! Congrats! Can't wait to hear all about it - and when you get back, you'd better be better about posting pictures than you normally are. Just sayin'... :)

Well that looks awesome! I am officially jealous!

One thing: I have now seen THREE different spellings for St. Maarten:
St. Maarten. St. Martin, and St. Maartin.

Which one is correct? Or... are they ALL correct???

"T-Bone" Lee said...

I believe they are all correct sir. It's an island with both Dutch and French parts which I'm assuming takes care of two of those spellings..and then maybe the English spelling? I might be making that up but it seems like a reasonable explanation.

annnd YAY!

double yay!

Yay, congratulations on the vacation! Time away is always best when you're excited about it; I hope you enjoy the trip!

St. Martin is the French spelling and St. Maarten is the Dutch. St. Maartin is a misspelling :)

YAY for your vacay! My sister in law had to flee the US to be able to attend medical school, so she languished in St. Maarten while taking classes. I don't cry for her, Argentina.
