We’re booked!

So this is what it looks like in St. Louis today:

School was canceled yesterday and today because of icy road conditions which means I get to stay home! And Josh even got to join me yesterday afternoon =)

Despite all the snow, all I can think about is the trip we just booked to the Dominican Republic! I made Josh promise me when he started PT school 3 years ago that when he graduated we would go on a trip to the islands. Somewhere warm, remote, and with lots of booze.

After 3 years of researching and planning this thing (I mean, I haven’t been looking forward to it or anything) we finally decided on Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado in the Dominican. It is an all inclusive resort that is on it’s own island. And it’s adult only so there won’t be any pesky children splashing me in the pool.

And we almost didn’t get it…I picked this place out last summer but I have been waiting to book, you know, just in case we needed the money we saved for something else. But apparently I waited too long because I called the travel agent on Monday with the dates and when I emailed Tuesday morning to confirm, she told me they were sold out. Entirely…not a room available on the island.

Ya’ll, I just cried!
I couldn’t believe it had sold out over night! I felt like a kid whose favorite toy just got yanked out of their hand!

BUT, I have an AMAZING travel agent and she was able to get us in. Not the original dates, but we’re going to make it work. And in 90 days I will be rockin my new bikini on the beach in the Dominican! Which is going to be a really big deal for me because this is what I looked like on our honeymoon 3 years ago:

WOW…I don’t even know that person anymore… not Julian the travel guide, I actually remember him really well. I am referring to the unhealthy and very unhappy version of myself.

The excitement of this trip is enough to get me through the miserable cold and windy days here in Missouri…

I’m sure they cleared the people and the beach chairs for this photo but a girl can dream…
