Decisions, Decisions...

So, Brant and I have a GREAT group of friends (most of them married) that we love and adore (The Erwins, The Grimes, the Wetherells). Last summer, all of our friends (about 30 or so people..maybe more) took a trip to Mexico. Well Brant and I didn't go because it was only a few weeks before our wedding and we were going to Mexico on our honeymoon. This year, the gang's going back!!! Brant and I were really excited about going so we started saving. Well, a couple months passed, and we never booked the trip, so Brant and I talked about the other night. We decided that maybe we should just take our own vacation...and we decided that we would go to Chicago.

So I got on the computer, did some research, looked up the price of tickets and hotels, and we were going to the Rangers vs. White Sox game while we were there (although Brant says we would have to cheer for the Rangers under our breath or we might get mugged!!!). We were going to Chicago...until today.

So Brant told me this morning ..."Hey, Ryan said we're ready to book the Mexico trip on Friday." My response..."Are you kidding me? What happened to Chicago?"

So after a long discussion, we finally made a decision....WE ARE GOING TO MEXICO. Here is our reasoning...although Chicago would have been a longer and less expensive trip...this might honestly be our only chance to go with EVERYONE! None of us, at the present moment, have children, but that will probably change by next summer (Yep, I'm hoping to be one of them...along with Corey and Melissa, and hopefully Kristy). So with children on the way, or children now here, it is very unlikely that we would get to go and be completely carefree with the most amazing friends ever! So, although we will have to budget, we're going to Mexico!!!

Now, does anyone know how to lose about 20 lbs in 8 weeks????????

Much Love,
Ashley

I'm glad you are going to Mexico...but I did get excited about you coming to the midwest/ esp. chicago. I love chicago and since it is only a couple hours away, we go a lot. It is super fun and there is so much to do.

Mexico is better though.

I'm trying to lose 20 lbs. in 5 days.

Oh be super glad that you are going to Mexico. While Chicago is a phenominal city, there is LOTS to do there with kids. So, it would make a great vacation to take the kids on.

Enjoy that warm Mexican sun while you can!
