T-Minus 3 Days

And I will be on the beach in Mexico for a much needed vacation. Last night, Joe and I went to Walmart and bought a bunch of stuff that we are going to need (and what Riley is going to need while we are gone!) I do wish we could take her with us. She is going to be staying with some friends of ours for most of our trip, and then she is going to the kennel for a few days because our friends are leaving on their vacation!

Today, I stopped by the post office and stopped our mail (Which is currently still going to the apartment that we evacuated at the beginning of July... oops!) and then I went to the library and checked out like 10 books. I have been wanting to read all of James Patterson's books for a long time now, but just never got around to picking up a bunch of them. Well, every book I got for this vacation is his. I can't wait to start them. (Yeah, I'm that nerd who sits on the beach with a book and an alcoholic beverage for my entire vacation! I don't get in the ocean so it suits me.) Last year, on our honeymoon, I only took 2 books because I didn't want to bore my new husband while I read all day... haha... Turns out he loves to read too, so I was very upset when I got through my two books within two days! So this time, I think I have plenty!

Anyway, probably won't get a chance to write before we leave. Please pray for safe travels and I will have lots of pictures for when we return!


Oh yeah... we got our bank appraisal back for our house. It appraised for 12K more than we purchased it for. We are so excited. We really got a great deal! More on the house when we get back from vacation!
