Ready for Some Salsa Lovins!!

Wahoo!! In a few hours I'll be hoppin' across the border and winging my way to a week of double the laughter and double the fun! It's time to party as only Rose and Marie know how!
(The ability to travel now makes all the overtime worked in the fall and before Christmas well worth it. I may wear hand-me-down clothes (yup!) and not buy a lot of new furniture or house stuff but I sure do love me some travelling! I guess I come by it honestly as my parents love to travel too so it's in our blood.)

Mary-Mia and I have been online friends for a few years now and it's been a dream to be able to head west and visit them. Tomorrow is the day! We planned our visit back in the fall and have been waiting a number of months for this time to arrive. It's fun to think that this time tomorrow we'll be chatting up a storm!

It was sweet to talk to the girls on the phone tonight. They breezed by quickly to say a quick, 'Hi' and 'Hi Kaffrin' on the phone. Oh yah...melted my heart! They on the other hand, are probably scheming about what they can do with a rookie in the house! Oh the fun they'll have teaching me the ropes. (Hopefully they don't use those ropes to tie me up when I'm not paying attention. :o) I think I'm blissfully unaware of the energy the adorable twinadoes have but I'm the first to admit I can't wait to spend a week hanging out with Mary-Mia and Rod...and getting a crash course in mommyhood from the girls!

Another bonus about with this trip is I'll have 2 long stopovers on the way down. The first one I'll meet my parents, aunt and uncle in Detroit and we're going to go out to lunch together near the airport. The 2nd 2 hour stopover is in Julie's hometown so she's going to meet me at the airport for a visit between flights. Yeah!!! Hoping Miss Tess will nap early so that she can join us too but if not I'll just need to be patient until we get together again sometime.

Looking forward to spending time with wonderful family and friends tomorrow! Can't wait to see everyone!!!

PS - Will be heading back via Atlanta next Wednesday. Anyone live near the airport and want to grab a Starbucks at the airport? LOL!
