On the Road

On the Road

Today marks the start of a two-week vacation for me, and the boy and I are kicking it off by heading down to San Antonio for the weekend. We’re going to stay in a fancy hotel, eat in the revolving restaurant at the Tower of the Americas, check out El Mercado and the Riverwalk, and just in general relax and have a good time. It’s a sort of early birthday present trip to me, as I turn 30 next week. !!! I’ve officially finished all of the work stuff I needed to get done before leaving this afternoon, and so now I just need to shower, pack my stuff, and get Sienna ready for her doggy day camp weekend. Yes, I’m writing this unshowered, don’t judge.

The rest of the two weeks is just a staycation, but it’s a much needed one since I didn’t really have a vacation this summer. I’ll pop in on the blog here and there, but mostly you’ll find me on the couch reading or Netflixing. It’s going to be awesome. 😀

When was the last time you had a vacation or staycation? Tell me about it!
