Mini Vacay

As you all know, I'm off for three weeks.

The hubby and I are taking a mini vacay before the holidays hit (and before my twin and her family come because when they get here, I will ignore him pretty much 99% of the time).

We will be staying here.

I know!!!!

Let's all jump up and down for me!!!

It's in Monterey.  By the time this post goes live, we will almost be there.  We only have plans to eat, drink, sleep, and repeat.  Everyone says they hope the weather will be okay for us (there's lots of talk of rain) and we keep saying that we don't care.  We're not going so that we can get a tan (although that actually would be nice).  We're going so that I can get a massage.  Duh.

We will be gone until late Friday so I have cheated scheduled a couple of re-run posts for your reading pleasure.

I looked through my archives and I have located the first one for you.

The title is Angry Birds and I'm going to get it going in my classroom after winter break.

Hope your day is going as good as mine!  :)


  1. Lucky you! Enjoy your relaxing vacation and massage! The place looks absolutely gorgeous! =)

  7. Im jealous you are already off! We go til thursday, then we are off for 3 weeks. January 14 is our first day back! But, I'll be in Monterey next week after Christmas for a couple days, though I doubt my resort is as nice! Enjoy!


  8. That looks beautiful!!! This is the opposite of what we have here....rainy, dreary and cold weather! Enjoy!

  9. I know where that is! We have stayed at the next hotel over - it's gorgeous!

    Have fun!

  10. Wha????!!!! What's the word that means more than lucky?

    If ya need me, I'll be at work... til THURSDAY!

    :D Have a fabulous time!

  11. Kristin, I, too, have 3 weeks off, but instead of luxurating (should be a word), of course I am planning for January. I now read the comments because I see their significance: more links to more blogs! Happy restful fun time for you.

  12. We stayed at that same hotel this past summer! My boys loved it and still talk about "our fancy hotel"! Lol.

    If you like Clam Chowder, go to the restaurant down the street at the very end of the pier. SO yummy!!

    Enjoy your relaxing!!!!


  13. Well, first of all have a great trip! Safe travels! Secondly I LOVE the Angry Birds idea! Sadly I just read it since the original was written before I discovered you and your awesomeness. I am definitely going to start this after Christmas though!
