See ya!

We are leaving today! I am packed, Amber is packed and ready to stay with my neighbor, and my son keeps saying “wait”.

Of course my body hates me and decided to start my monthly yesterday, just in time for my trip. Gee thanks. 🙄

I am charging everything now as well so nothing will die on the plane (hopefully). Then I just have to pack the chargers and the plugs and take off!

I used the Marie Condo way of folding and was able to get everything in a backpack for my 4 day trip.

I emailed the hotel concierge to ask about tours and how easy it will be to get around.

Any guesses where we are going? And to the 2 bloggers I am meeting there, no guessing or telling! 🤣

I took my exam last night and most likely failed. It was really tough and my mind wasn’t there, it was on everything I needed to do to get ready to leave today!

Official trip start weight is 147.2 which is great! I feel good and can’t wait! I’ll take plenty of photos on the trip and let y’all know how it went once I get home Wednesday.


Did ANYBODY even TRY to guess where we are?

I got a lot of likes but no comments… I guess you guys don’t care where we are! 😂

The boys are having a blast riding rides on the boardwalk and I’m sitting in the warm bar having some Stella Artois. I’m happy, the boys are happy, we already checked in to our hotel, and have dinner reservations for 7pm after they’ve been riding rides all afternoon.

I know I’m not supposed to care what the scale said but I care! I lost THREE pounds! Maybe I DO need to eat more! I’m only supposed to lose a pound a week. I’m not complaining, I just need to eat more to slow down a bit. I’m still going to get my exercise daily because I enjoy having that time to myself. I am taking a break today though to enjoy my beer and eating seafood for dinner at a fancy schmancy restaurant.

Y’all have fun!

Well darn it!

I was under 1,000 steps to 10,000 yesterday. Dammit. I knew I should have walked the dog one more time! Oh well.

So today Styled has a hair appointment at 8:30am which means I have to leave my house by 7:45am which is why I am up at 5:30am on a Saturday. The boys kept me up until midnight as well so not enough sleep but oh well! The neighbor kid came over last night and ended up staying the night too. So I have THREE 12 year olds over here! They were playing flashlight tag downstairs using my sons lightsaber. It glows a bright green so it lit up each room. They had fun it seems. I forgot to take pictures last night of the boys. They were too busy running around and not wanting to stop.

I also have to drop by to see Cranky and Forgetful before we can head out of town. I am going to try to see them both while Styled is with her hair person since it will take her a couple of hours. Let’s hope that works out so we can leave Houston by 12.

Today we also leave town for the night! Let’s see if anyone can guess where we are going. It is within an hour drive of Houston. They have an amusement park and tons of restaurants but only one inn (hotel). One man owns most of the entire town we are going to and now this same man even owns the Houston Rockets basketball team. There is water but not much of a beach. Biggest hint: They have a wooden roller coaster called The Boardwalk Bullet.

I might have given it away for a few readers with that last couple hints. Pretty easy to google who owns the basketball team here. Don’t though! It’s more fun to let me tell you tomorrow and keep you in suspense! The boys are excited to go. I’m just happy to be getting out for a night. Not sure if I’ll get any rest having these 2 boys but I will sure try!

So outside it is 44F (6C). Yesterday was 77F (25C). It rained like crazy last night for a while and the temperature dropped. I’m so glad it got colder just in time for Christmas 🎄! I’m one of those people that think it should be cold on Christmas. My friend from Costa Rica says she grew up thinking it should be warm for Christmas and go to the beach. Houston has had 80 degree Christmases an 30 degrees ones. So I guess we get the best of both worlds? 😂😂😂 I put Celsius in parenthesis so nobody has to do the conversion in their head! 😀

I have to send out invoices today too! I may just take my computer with me and do them while I’m sitting at the bar having a drink and the boys are playing. Once I make them on my computer, I can send them from my phone so I don’t really even need internet to do it.

Well have fun and I’ll be back tomorrow to tell you all about our trip!
