My Surprise!

Keith and I are heading to the beachΒ TONIGHT until next Friday! We were going to leave tomorrow morning but after some not too hard twisting of our arms we have decided to go tonight!!! YAY! My mom has a condo on Padre Island (the Texas Coast) and we are going for the week! SWEET!!! Here is where I will be chilling:

The Island House Condos...this is where my mom's condo is!

The View From Our Condo

Keith and I definitely plan on getting some needed R&R! I am so excited to play in the ocean, run on the beach every morning, go fishing with my husband, read, watch movies, do crosswords, and eat delicious FRESH seafood every night! My mom and Jim are fabulous travel mates and we are beyond excited! πŸ™‚ There will be some competitive board game playing each night too! There is a fabulous Farmer’s Market down the street from our condo and we visit the fresh seafood dock every morning! It is such a great time!

I wil be blogging, but probably only posting once a day! I know you guys understand! Okay…gotta go pack up the car so we can hit the road…we have about a 4 hour drive in front of us! 😦 (I know I know…small price to pay!) Catch you on the flip side…from the beach!

Oh and how fitting: check out my latest Examiner article on Road Tripping! Later Gators! πŸ˜‰
