Vacation Notice and Happy Anniversary

We're leaving on our vacation tomorrow!! 9 DAYS and 8 NIGHTS at the beach!! I am so freaking excited. This is our first vacation since Christmas and we deserve it! As you know we were originally going to the DR, but we recently had to cancel due to a variety of circumstances (husband's job, we're looking to move, needed to save the $$, etc, etc, etc). But, we now are staying the entire time at my parent's beach house...for FREE! =) We also will have more of a chance to see family and friends. I get to see my friend A and meet baby Scarlett, see my friend S and her new man, see our good couple friend S and L (we just found out S is expecting Jan 31st!), see our honorary ring bearer and his wife, see my old roommate L, and so many more! I am getting excited just writing about it. My parents will join us on Wed and A's parents are joining us on Thursday. A 4th of July with both sets! We're very lucky to get to spend this special time with them. We booked skymiles tickets down there and lucked out with first class on the way there. Just put me on that plane asap! This white Southern Yankee needs a little color!

Monday is a very special day for us--it is our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! It is so hard to believe it has already been a year---but at the same time so much has happened and we've had tons of ups and downs so it kinda seems longer than a year. It's almost our one year anniversary of living in the city. Our cake is at my parent's house so we'll get to eat it for our anniversary! I can't wait to see how it tastes. We are giving each other a present--a trip to Atlanta to see the Alabama vs. Clemson (tickets=paper) game for Labor Day weekend and we are moving into a bigger apartment! We've been looking for over a month and we've seen about 25 apartments. Most were out of our budget (did you know 2 bedroom apartments on the Upper East side average about $3400-$4500---1 bedrooms average about $2500-$3300--yeah that is to RENT--and it sucks!). Anyways--we most likely (fingers crossed) are going to move into our friend M&A's Junior 4 apartment (A is the one that just had the baby). They are moving back South and we are moving into their darling apartment should everything go accordingly. Please say a prayer for us that it does.

So that's the update. I'm off to bask in the Southern sun and fill myself up with good seafood, southern dishes, and lots of love from family and friends!

I probably won't be posting next week, but do check back on Monday for some special--never seen before wedding pictures that I'll post. Have a great 4th of July everyone!

I was waiting to hear about your anniversary. For some reason I was thinking you got married the week before me, but I guess it was the week after. Congratulations! Enjoy your much needed (and deserved) vacation!

Happy Anniversary! It sounds like you and your husband are going to have a great vacation! It will be so much fun to spend time with family and friends.

I am praying for you that everything goes well with your move. That is so stressful!

Enjoy your weekend and have a fun vacation!

Happy Anniversary!

I'm looking forward to the wedding pictures - even though I got married 2 years ago, I still love hearing about wedding details and the like.

I'm going to add you to my blogroll; I can remove the link if you'd rather I not. Thanks!

Have a fabu vaca with the family!! And good luck with the move. What is a "Junior 4" apt? In DC I lived in a Jr 1 br (called that bc my bedroom didn't have a real window) but have never before heard of a Jr 4. Is that a 4 br??

Sorry deleted by mistake!

Happy anniversary and have fun on your trip! I hope you get lots of rest and lots of sun!

We are on the look out for a bigger apt too. Apparently our 2 bedroom apt is not big enough for his Highness Hubby. Rents are crazy. I don't want to move.

Congrats to the two of you! Happy Anniversary! I'll keep my fingers crossed for y'all and the apartment!

Hope you are having a blast. I just got back from the beach and it was awesome. I've never been at the beach on the 4th of July before.
Happy Anniversary!
