We're Going to the Bahamas!!!

So the day has arrived, we are at the airport waiting for our time to board our flight to the Bahamas!!  So exciting!!  I finished packing late last night, and oh boy, what a struggle!  I didn't want to overpack but how do I know what I want to wear each day for the next 5 days - not an easy task for me!  I'll have more on that after my vacation so I can tell you if I wore everything and did a good job packing or over packed, as usual.

We left the house a bit before 6am because, just our luck, it started snowing in the early morning.  Oh and we couldn't check in online so I was freaking out that there was a problem with our passports....ugh.  So, I woke up my kids to say goodbye, I cried & baby girl was also crying but doing a very good job at trying to keep it in...LOL!  I wasn't as successful.  I think I cried all the way to the airport, and still feel a bit emotional now.  This is my first trip without them....so yea, I am missing them!  As much as I know that we need this getaway without the kids, I really do wish they were here.  Well....guess this is a perfect excuse to plan the next Bahamas getaway - with the kids.

We got in, were able to check in at the help desk with no issues - breezed through security and got our breakfast!!  Now to wait!  We'll be boarding in a little while and 3 hours later we'll be on a sunny island, Can't wait!!!

Time to Travel!!

Well, 2016 started like any other year.  We experienced our first blizzard of the year, but I can't complain since we've had a very mild winter so far.  Last weekend we were snowed in and tomorrow we may have temps close to 60 - its crazy!!!

I'm loving it!!  I don't like the cold at all, so I am really enjoying the warmer temps.  Now, if it were really cold, that would be okay too because pretty soon we will be taking a break from all this snow, cold and winter.  We are taking our first trip of 2016 to the Bahamas!!!  I am beyond ecstatic!!!

I'm still in the process of packing and will finish Thursday night since I'm still waiting for a few packages to arrive.  I have set aside more bathing suits than I need, but that's ok!  I also think I have more clothes than I need, but on Thursday I will be unpacking everything again to go over everything.  I'm thinking to set up all outfits so I can weed out things I may not use.

This trip is adults only - so my hubby is really happy that he will have ALL of my attention =D LOL
Hubby & I are looking forward to just relaxing and having no responsibilities.  A few days of nothing but relaxing!!!  We will be staying at the Atlantis and already have some dinners planned and a catamaran ride booked, which I'm really looking forward to.  I'm thinking about booking a couples massage and a dolphin swim, but I haven't made up my mind yet.  Either way, I know that we'll have a blast - it will be so much fun!

This is the first time I'm traveling without my kids and my son seems fine, but baby girl has been extra clingy lately.  She said she was ok with us going but I can tell she's a bit sad.  I know she'll have fun with her aunt & cousins, and I've already told her that next year she will get to see the Bahamas.  I will definitely need to look for something nice to bring back for her :)

Isn't this a great way to start the year?  New Year, lots of changes & new beginnings!!!!
