We're outta here!

Two years ago in February S and I decided we needed to run off, get away, and just DO something to save our souls from the winter dull drums. Well another winter storm has hit; freezing temps, blowing snow, and ice. It is time to get out of Dodge!

We haven't found the place yet but here is the plan:

1. Rent a dog friendly cabin in Somewhere, WI.
2. Pack the car with games and warm clothes.
3. Treating ourselves to gourmet snacks, cheeses, and deserts.
4. Plan a wonderful menu with good soul warming ingredients.
5. Pack the dog up!
6. Go for long or short walks in the woods.
7. Enjoy each other; this will be most likely our last, last minute adventure before parenthood.

The plan is to take a half-day off on Friday to pack, shop, and drive. We'll be back on Monday for work, fresh, rejuvenated, and ready to finish the final push toward the big birth day, which is only 98 days away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, we cannot thank you all enough for all the wonderful, supportive, and encouraging comments from S's post about being dull. We are so grateful for each of you that comment. It brings a nice boost to our days.

For those of you that read but do not comment just know that it doesn't hurt; you don't have to get a password, sign in as anonymous and just put your name at the end of the comment. We know many of our "real life" friends and family read and it would be wonderful to hear your thoughts!

Dad, you are a rock for us. Even the blog world wants a piece of you! You get a lot of comments about your comments and support for us. I knew, all these years, we weren't crazy for thinking you're the best! We are not alone!

Hubby and I thought the same thing about our vacation (last one before baby, will come back refreshed) but be warned. It ruined me. I so don't want to work anymore haha. The vacation was like a tease for me and I've always loved my job so it's odd.
I hope you have so much fun though and enjoy the cheese. Mmm cheese (sorry these cravings are strong).
And congrats on being a week away from the third tri, hopefully it goes by quickly for us :))
