Whether it's the counter on the blog ticking away the days, the unrelenting grey of winter making us want to run away from home, the fact that the stove shorted out and we needed to buy a new one in the midst of planning a wedding and we needed a good distraction, or the fact that people keep asking, "so what are you two doing for your honeymoon?" R and I decided that today was the day we were going to decide exactly what it is we are going to do for our wedding trip! We had options. Mexico was one, and was originally the one we thought we were heading for. We have been offered the use of a time share any time we want in Puerta Vallarta as a wedding gift, and all we need to do is get ourselves there. But May does not seem like the ideal time to go to Mexico. NOW would be the ideal time to go to Mexico, but I don't think it would be quite proper for us to go on our honeymoon eighty some days before the wedding. So we are thinking that we will save that generous offer for next winter when we simply can't stand it here anymore and take a great winter vacation.
Which left us with the question of where to go and what to do at the proper honeymoon time. But, the plan has been made! We are doing what we love most....We are taking a road trip in Gladys the Mini Cooper! We are going to go see Jimmy Buffett on the 20th of May.....drum roll please.....at Woodlands Pavillion in Spring, Texas.
Now of course what this means is that we will be passing through Dallas-Ft. Worth, and hanging around near Houston and Galveston for a few days. And R being the great guy that he is says, "It would be great if you could catch up with some of your friends while we are there!" We plan to leave here on May 17th and mosey down for a couple days, stay for the concert and then mosey back for a few more getting home around the 24th.
This just feels like the perfect plan. Road trips are really our thing, we love travelling in Gladys, Jimmy concerts are special for us, and as a bonus I might get to have a meet-up or two. Does it get any better all in one trip! R just went on line and got the concert tickets, so it's official.
