Our First Vacation Away

I’m alive! Kinda, does half asleep, walking zombie count?

Back from vacation and now back on that daily grind. Aruba was awesome – I highly recommend a visit there if you can. But then again, you can’t really go wrong w/ a sugar sand beaches, turquoise waters, and endless adult beverages. And even better — my sweet mom, God bless that woman, came back from VN back in time to watch Caden for us so we actually got to relax and totally enjoy doing nothing. It was pure bliss. On our last day, we stayed in our room to watch a movie, something we haven’t been able to do in almost a year. (ok, and because I was a tad bit hung over). hehe.

After 4 days away from little man, we were ready to go home and smother him w/ hugs, but he totally was mad at us and pretended we weren’t even there when we got home for a whole 2 minutes – an eternity in toddler time. That little shit. He’s forgiven us, and I’ve given him many M&Ms to make up for it so all is right in the world again 🙂

The countdown begins for our first family vacay to ARUBA in just 15 days! I’m starting to overcome the dread I normally feel when I think about Caden on a plane for 4 hours and actually feeling a bit excited! I know I have a tendency to be a majorly impatient asshole with my hubs – and I admit it – kinda uptight on trips just because I’m not one to do well with changes. Throw a crazy, apple juiced up toddler into the equation, and we might have situation. HOWEVER, I am DETERMINED to make this trip memorable and Shutterfly album worthy and not drink myself into mommy obliteration to take the edge off. (Husband is not a drinker, so I could if I wanted 🙂 )

So of course, I have been shopping like a mad woman and using every possible excuse to go run to Target because we “need” something for Aruba. Since I doubt we will be basking on the beach and relaxing w/ a mai tai in hand w/ my little man running around, I’ve scouring the internet and malls for a swimsuit that is mommy friendly so I won’t have to suck in my left over baby weight 24/7 or run the risk of indecently exposing myself.

With all the drama and sickness boggin us down lately, I am uber excited for the change of scenery for our little fam.
