#Project MILF - travel

I have been falling behind on these MILF updates. Really my goals are long term so there really was not much to report from week to week. Monthly updates from here on out would make the most sense.

This week is about traveling, my favorite subject :). If I could go anywhere where would I go?
Well, at the top of my dream list is a trip to the Maldives. I know we'll make it there one day but I am not sure when. Maybe our 10-year anniversary. Every time I look at pictures from there, I start dreaming. I mean look at this view, how beautiful is this?

Since we are talking about travel, I figured I would share our upcoming travel schedule. We are booked solid between now and Christmas and I couldn't be happier about it.

At the beginning of July we are going to Ottawa, Canada for 5 days. So excited, my cousin moved there this past January and it's about time we go check out her new digs. We are taking the kids with us for this adventure, should be loads of fun. The last time I went to Ottawa was 9 years ago when my cousin and I went there to visit some friends. During that trip we visited Ottawa and Montreal and had so much fun

Here we are downtown Ottawa celebrating Canada day in July of 2004. I had to take a picture of a picture because I wasn't digital back then
And here we are in Montreal. (PS - how skinny am I in this picture (I am the one in red), to think that  I used to feel fat. Oh how I would love to be that skinny again)
At the end of July, we are going to Montego Bay, Jamaica for a week to celebrate our anniversary without the kids. I am so excited. We got a great deal for the Riu Montego Bay. This place looks awesome, I can't wait to be there. Check out these pictures from their website. Mmmmh yeah, dreamy.


In September I am taking a solo trip to St Louis, Missouri for a good friend's baby shower. It's going to be a quick weekend trip. Should be fun times with the girls.

In September we are also going to Las Vegas, Nevada to celebrate my hubby's 30th birthday. We are taking both kids with us and we are staying at the Venetian. I am really excited about this trip.

The last time we were in Vegas was to celebrate his 25th birthday. We went with my mom and brothers and had a ball


In October I am going to Denver, Colorado all by myself to hang out with my bestie who moved there last year. My BFF Melissa is coming with me, it's going to be so much fun, 4 days with these lovely ladies, partying like we did in College. My hubby is watching the boys while I am gone

The last time I went to Denver was with my hubby 6 years ago. We went to the Monolith festival with my BFF Melissa and a few other friends. We had a blast.

All of us in the amphitheater
In November I am going to Toronto, Canada with the boys and my mom to visit a good friend of mine. My hubby will be able to get a break from us for a few days :). He better enjoy that free time.

I took Tman there when he was just 10 months and we stopped by Niagara Falls on the way there. How little does my Tman look here, it's crazy how much he's grown yet still looks the same
In December we are taking the boys to Texas to visit my hubby's cousins who are moving there next month. They are living in Calgary right now and are so excited about moving to the warm Texas weather.

We visited them in Calgary 2 years ago when Tman was 1, they took us to Lake Louise for a fun day of adventure. That place it so nice and scenic. (His cousin's daughter is now studying in London, we got to hang out with her when we took the boys last month. Good times).
There you have it. A super busy next few months raking in the frequent flyer miles. All the trips have been booked except the trip to Texas. We are waiting for them to get a place before we finalize everything. I like to book early, you always get the best deals and usually get the direct flights too which makes a world of difference with the kids.

  10. The Maldives is on our list too!! It's just jaw droppingly beautiful!! I think the hubs timeshare has a location there. I don't even know if it would ever be possible but we'd love to. Let's hope we can go someday...but I'll even settle for Jamaica.
