As I mentioned yesterday, my birthday is fast approaching and I'm setting up some long term goals to strive for. My first goal is to get my act together and spiff myself up. My second goal was inspired by this photograph:
This my dears is La Meridien Hotel in Bora Bora. And I WILL be going here for vacation. Someday. Three years from now my youngest child we be almost 4. Old enough for mommy and daddy to leave him and his brothers with the grandparents and have a little vacay. 3 years....I told you these were long term goals.
In that time I should be able to sock away enough cash to pay for this trip...if not, we are going anyway. I'll mortgage the house if I have to. (Okay..I wouldn't do that). I'm figuring about $4000 for the airfare (did you know that it takes 25 hours to fly to Bora Bora and there is no first class service??? WTF??) and another $7000 for a week's stay. My goal is to save up $13,000 just to be safe .... money well spent to walk directly from my bed into the ocean.
Here are a few more photos, just to get you in the mood
Let the count down begin!!
