I'm Leaving

 I don't think she wants me to go

I haven't had a real vacation (as in more than three days out of town) since February 2010 so I'm overdue for a holiday. I am beyond excited to be going to Phoenix, Arizona Saturday for a week with D. and my family! In addition to all the shopping I'll be doing (and there will be LOTS of it because I hear Phoenix has some amazing outlet stores) I plan on doing some sightseeing, going to a national baseball game, relaxing by the pool and eating out at different restaurants. And did I say shopping???

I can't tell you how excited I am to see these! I love palm trees more than I love H & M.
Ok so I have a silly confession to make. Apparently, according to some religions, the world is going to end this Saturday at 6 p.m. because it's Judgment Day and at 6 o'clock I'll be in an airplane which kind of freaks me out! I don't really believe in this stuff and think it's ridiculous but I would be lying if I told you I haven't thought about it. But hopefully everyone will be fine and God will let us live a little I can make it to those outlet stores ; ).

I won't be blogging while I'm away because I don't think I'll have internet access but I have two scheduled posts for next week so check back soon! Have a great weekend! If we all make it through! Just kidding. Kinda.

That stupid end of the world junk started with some fringe ministry in Connecticut - they then planted billboards all over the highway. Ugh. On a brighter note, have a fabulous and safe trip and take lots of time to relax...I can't wait to see all your purchases!!!

not guna lie...i would be totally freaked out if my flight was the same time as this judgement day crap...i'd be praying for a delay haha. i remember flying to spain last year and the morning of my flight i kept seeing people who had died in aeroplane like buddy holly came on the car how often does buddy holly ever come on the radio?! and an aaliyah video was on the music channel and i rationally thought they were signs and ended up having a massive panic attack in the middle of the check in line and sobbed pretty much the entire flight...i bet you don't feel silly now haha! but anyways ive rambled on long enough, hope you have a lovely holiday marie and look forward to seeing your purchases! :)

I am jealous, I want to go on a holiday!! I've been to pheonix when I was young, around 14 years old. It was really fun and the outlet malls are all to die for (but don't actually die for them, haha)

I want to reassure you that the world will NOT be ending this Sunday and that is Biblical truth my dear. Those nutburgers really need to knock it off.

Now go enjoy every minute of your vacay!! Your kitty in the suitcase is so adorable - totally knows you're going, but I'm sure will get treats upon return :)

No matter the world is going to end this Saturday at 6 p.m or not, we all will be right here waiting for you to come back.
Don't worry about us, we'll be fine, have a great time.

P.S. You're going to Arizona, aren't you? Please send a regard to my old friend - John Rambo. :)

Have fun on your vacation. I'm going to one soon as well, but not to a desert place like yours. I think it'll add more spunk to your blog, when you'll bring back some awesome pictures and stories.

Hope your kitty doesn't miss you too much, it's too cute!

Have the best time! Technically you won't be on the plane at 6pm because you'll probably be in a different time zone by then.

YOU MUST, however, go to Nordstrom's Rack. It is the ultimate in high end discount shopping.

Great photos dear, i like it so much!!! It looks so so dainty <3


Anna Jane said...

i've seen those billboards too and all i think to myself is "nooo, that's the day before I leave for mexico" so I know how you feel ;) i'm pretty sure it won't be ending though just because some guy that (also wrongly predicted it in 1994) predicted it said so :)

have so much fun on your vacay!

Mademoiselle Lala said...

Nikosmommy said...

The world can't possibly end on some random Saturday at 6pm That's just way too lame.

Ashley said...

I'm pretty sure you made it, so congratulations! Ha. I am so exciting for you because you deserve a vacation, and an Arizona vacation is the best vacation EVAR. Please take lots of pictures. I miss it dearly.

I hope it's not too hot for you, though. But the shopping will make up for it.
