Goin to Miami

3 more days and we are off to Miami baby! Many of you may remember that Joey won an award last year called Tops in Ops at his work(I blogged it a while back). This award honors employees that have gone above and beyond. Its one of the highest recognitions T-Mobile gives. Yea Joey!This award also includes an all-expense paid vacation to Miami! Woo hoo! We are staying at the 5 star Mandarin Oriental Hotel. I don't think I've ever stayed anywhere that is even on the star rating system! So, when I found out, I darn near peed my pants. Check out the pictures of this place. And its going to be just the 2 of us, no kids! Heaven....simply heaven. Joey is super stoked to golf hereI am super duper stoked to get a massage here

I know this post may seem braggy "we get to go here, we get to do this", but whatev. This blog is about us and our life, so how can I not blog this fantastic trip? I am so excited that I have to share the excitement with you! We leave Thursday afternoon and will get home Sunday afternoon. It has been over three years since we have traveled without our kids. We so need this getaway! I think every parent does! And its FREE, doesn't get better than that. I live for free stuff. Thanks Joey for working so hard and for winning this for us babe! And a BIG THANK YOU to Joey's parents for coming up to watch the kids. We couldn't be doing this without you! We love you!

Wow Holly, looks like y'all are going to have a wonderful time. And you have the right to brag, Joey worked hard for it.

My goodness! I am so completely jealous! It looks like absolute heaven. I can't wait to see your pics.

Have a blast Holly! Ya'll deserve it.

Once you go 5 Star you never want anything else. Even Reagan only wants 5 Star when we travel (spoiled kid). Seriously, you are going to love it.

Ya'll have a great time! And enjoy your freedom. :)
