Going away

Why do I have a picture of a passport on this post, you ask? Because...Mike and I are going to Jamaica!!! (and I have taken the most awesome passport picture--NOT REALLY.)

We made the decision last week after a lot of discussion. Originally, we decided that we weren't going to go, but we both felt kind of bummed out about it.Mike really wanted to see his friend get married and we both really need a vacation right now, especially me. My job is extremely stressful at the moment, and I need something to take my mind off the stress. Not to mention that Mike and I are will be celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary around the same time of the Jamaica trip. Our honeymoon was the last vacation we took together, so this will be great for us to get away and spend some time relaxing on a beach together. And since we made our reservations, it's been nice to have something to look forward to and to think about other than obsessing about getting pregnant.

I really need a distraction in that department.

So Jamaica has also been my motivation for going back to the gym. Of course, I want to be healthier, but I really need to get this body in shape if I am going to be wearing a bikini! Yikes, that is a scary thought.

Especially when I can't stop eating these bad boys.

These are the most mouth watering cookies I have had in a long time. In fact, they were so unbelievable that I ate 5 on my way home from the grocery store. Darn you Pepperidge Farm!

Oh yay!!!

Nothing eases stress like a good wind-down on a beach, with a fruity drink in hand, swinging in a hammock. I'm so very glad you get to do this! Have a great time!
