friday already?!

Goodness this week went fast! It was super hectic and kind of awful to be honest but it sure did go fast. Hooray for the weekend! Guy and I are thinking about seeing a movie tonight. Have you seen one recently that you loved? We're considering Where the Wild Things Are, Paranormal Activity, and Men Who Saw Goats. Recommendations?

Tomorrow I'm helping my sweet Collins sell her jewelry at a local Fall Market. I'd say wish us luck but we don't need it.... her work is really lovely.

Oh, and I can't believe that in two weeks I'LL BE IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC. This trip kind of snuck up on me and now it's only two weeks away and I have to be honest... I need it. Bad.

Here's where we're staying. How lucky am I?

Funny story actually. Well, now it's funny. It wasn't funny. Anyways.... long story short... we were suppose to be staying at a different resort. A couple weeks ago I looked it up on Trip Advisor to read reviews and get excited and saw that it had CLOSED.
Tears started streaming down my face.
Anger bubbled in my chest.
Fear crept into my soul - we had already paid. In full.

I called the agency we booked through, gave them a verbal lashing for not notifying me our resort went bankrupt and they immediately sent us options. Above was one of the options. And it just happens to be the #1 resort in the Dominican. A situation that started out bad actually turned out to be a blessing. Did I say I was lucky? Because I am.

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!

I recommend "Law-Abiding Citizen." Saw it last weekend and it was awesome! But, I totally want to see "Men Who Stare at Goats!" You just reminded me it's out, and maybe boyfriend and I should go see it tonight!

Wow, I would be so stankin' (did I just make that word up? I think I did!) mad if I booked a hotel, paid in full and then they went up in smoke and no one told me! Yikes! So happy things turned out well for you. Can't wait to hear about your trip and see pics! Never been, but it's on the list!
