Guess where I'm off to!

I've been MIA this week because I've been running around in circles trying to get ready to go to Maui! It's our 9 year anniversary and we've never left the kids to go somewhere together, except once when Miss B was like 2, we spent a night away in Tucson. Needless to say I am SO excited! Sam's parents live in Maui when they don't live across the street from us so we are going to stay with them and bringing our best friends, Kyle and Ashley with us. They will be celebrating their 11 year anniversary this month. Didn't we look like little kids? Our kids can't believe that their daddy used to have hair!Here's the extent of my creative efforts this week- I got these great Hula Honeys postcards last year and I love them too much to use them but I finally broke down and put our address information on the back and had them laminated to make luggage tags.
I am sure my kids will be fine but tonight the anxiety of leaving them is setting in! So instead of packing, I am blogging!

Yay have fun!!!! That sounds so nice and relaxing. I love the luggage tags. That's such a cool idea! I get to use the generic airline ones they hand out for free.

I so know what you mean. I get so nervous about leaving the kids that i stress and cry and am sick to my stomach. They are always fine. Enjoy your time alone with your hubby. It makes you a better mom. It shows your kids that it is important to take time for your spouse. I loved seeing my parents go on dates. It was so sweet!

You guys are going to have so much fun in Maui. Don't forget to eat at Mamas Fish House. BTW I was able to easily recognize Sam in that picture but I kept staring at you trying to recognize you. You actually look younger now than then.

Okay wannabecrafter, I think you're more actual crafter than wannabe. What a cute idea for luggage tags. I think we need to hang out so you can tell me what to do with all my random precious junk (scraps of ribbon, cardstock, cardboard, green strawberry baskets, etc.) that I can't part with because it would be good for something. Seriously. Have fun in Hawaii!

How fun and exciting! We just had our 9th anniversary too! We are saving out Hawaii trip for our 10 year. Neither one of us have been there before. I can't wait! Have a wonderful time!
