Hi. Around this neck of the woods, today marks the first day of Spring Break. Blogger World, Happy Freakin' Spring Break! I hate Spring Break. I hate it along with Summer Break. Since I no longer receive a Spring Break or Summer Break, I basically loathe any adult that receives these made up holidays. What? No, I'm not jealous some people receive a week off work for no reason. No. Seriously, I'm not jealous. Anyway, enough Debbie Downer...moving on to the real post.
One cold day in February I was looking at ariplane tickets, dreaming how great it would be to go on a trip. Southwest Airlines was having a killer sale to/from the following cities: Houston, Austin, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City and St. Louis. I mean these tickets were dirt cheap, $39.
While dreaming of a nice weekend vacation the telephone inturrupted my thoughts. The following conversation took place one cold day in February.
Sister #1: What are you doing?
Me: Looking at cheap tickets.
Sister #1: Where are you thinking of going?
Me: Maybe St. Louis, so I can go shop at H&M
Sister #1: Oh, why don't we get tickets? It can be your birthday present. We could go for the day.
Sister #1: It looks like Tuesday, March 16 works for the cheap tickets.
Me: OK (getting more excited)
Sister #1: Now, this is your birthday present from me. You will not get anything else. Are you ok with that?
Sister #1: Alright, we're book for Tuesday, March 16th. We fly out at 6:30am and fly home at 8:30pm. Is that enough H&M shopping for you?
Tomorrow, Sister #1, my mom, and myself are taking a day trip to St. Louis. The day will be full of shopping, eating, and more shopping. So, how is that for spontaneity?
