a last minute trip?

my husband and i
went to our favorite bookstore/coffee shop
after seeing the movie larry crowne (loved it, btw)
so we are there at barnes & noble
with our best friends
one thing leads to another...
and THIS monday, like in a couple days...
we will be going to vegas, baby!
on a spur of the minute we booked
all four of us to fly and have a little get away!
i have been in need of getting away, ANYWHERE
just to get away, so...YAY!

on another note
we had a post on facebook today
from one of our daughters (in africa)
saying they are going to be a day later
than they thought...they should have been
arriving in seattle today and now will not
be coming home until
sometime tomorrow evening-
the sad part is my son in law had taken today off
to go pick the two girls up but, he is scheduled
to work, my hubs and i will
be heading to get them, i just KNOW how badly
my son in law wanted to see his wife and feel badly
he has to work instead...bummer!

this friday
i am thankful that we
did hear from the girls
(even if it was via facebook!)
i am thankful that they are safe and will be
heading home soon
and i am excited and thankful that
i am able to get away with my
hubs and our best friends for a couple days!

life is sweet-
there is always good in every single day
sometimes, though it takes a little effort
to see the good in something
but, it is there if you only look!

i would hope you my friend,
are able to look through the clouds
and see the sun
and the good that is in

let's be shiny!

I saw Larry Crowne with my husband and we both really liked it. A great movie about change and learning to ride the wave of life's change. Much like seizing the moment and heading to Vegas when the opportunity presents itself. Haha. Have fun!

You will be thrilled to see your girls again, and to have them home safe and sound. I am sure that it has been a tremendous experience for them. A vacation for the four of you in Las Vegas - how wonderful! Sudden decisions made like that always make them seem more special somehow. I know you will all have a fun time together!

Thoughts for the day said...

How fun, now don't do too much gambling there, I like the let's go fishing game. Yes I know you will never make millions off it but it is very entertaining, um is that saying it doesn't take much to entertain me? haha... have a great time ~ seeing a show?
