Ok so lately I have been a little busy, distracted, excited, confused, and just a weeeeeeeeee bit overwhelmed. I know I know my blogging days are a little off but I really AM trying I promise!!!!
My biggest ventures these days are trying to find new furniture for my girls bedrooms, trying to find and book a cruise for us and of course somewhere in there we would like to take a cruise or two.
So first things first we have found a few different ideas for the new bedroom furniture for the girls. The only real hold up on getting it though really is weight. Yes I know that sounds strange and maybe even a little dumb but being in the military we have a weight allowance and are only allowed so much weight of our household good before we have to pay. Now why would I want to pay because the military decided I had to move right?!! I don't and that is the hold up. You see we are in Europe and along with that comes tons of really cool stuff that we can buy and take with us back to the states that normally we would never even venture to buy while living in the States. So the question is do we buy this...
One thing is for sure though...we ARE going to take a cruise or two!!! I have been looking online and have found some really great deals and am dying to actually book them. Yes Mr. M loves the idea of taking a cruise but honestly the thought of putting out that money makes him a little pissy..er ok a LOT pissy. He loves to vacay don't get me wrong but he works hard for his money and so it is hard for him to part with in a large lump sums. I get it really I do but eventually he is going to have to give up the hold on the bank account and just let me book these cruises.
I have been looking at a few different ones and I think I have finally decided on these two and am sooo excited to get them booked and take them.
3 Palermo, Sicily
5 Palma de Mallorca
while the second one has an agenda of..
2 At Sea
6 At Sea
8 Port Said / Alexandria
9 At Sea
10 At Sea
Mr. M is not so keen on the second one but honestly I am and since I have spent months upon months looking for these deals and waiting and searching and hunting and talking and emailing everyone I could think of for advice then he WILL deal with his thoughts and have a fabulous time.
I really do think that we will have a grand time and I am excited to see the girls faces when we actually get to the boat and start having a fabulous time.
Now the last part of this blog is....*looking around*....Christmas. Oh dear friends I have not even begun to shop for this year. Usually I am done by the end of October but this year for some reason I am so busy and honestly a little confused as to what to even get the girls let alone Mr. M. I am at a LOSS!!! I have never been at a loss but then again maybe it has something to do with the fact that we made a decision to not spend money frivalously and to try our hardest to save up for travels while we are here in Europe. I just can't wrap my head around spending oodles of money on my girls when they don't need or seriously want for anything. What do you get kids that have everything and every time I ask them "what do you want for Christmas?" they say "I don't know" Sooooo not helpful girls..just saying!!!
So who knows what I will do for Christmas but something needs to be decided on soon..ughhhhhh!!! Any ideas are soo much appreciated ladies!!! REALLY!! SERIOUSLY!!! PLEASSSSSSSSSEEEE HELP ME!!!
