Planning a Vacation...

Chad and I are trying to plan a vacation for our anniversary at the end of June. We have been talking about it since November, but I have had a hard time convincing Chad to do some research with me. We would love any suggestions. Our requriements are:
1. Outside the United States (even Canada, Central or South America)
2. Somewhere we could not go once we have kids or somewhere we would not bring our children
3. Outdoor activities/day trips (Chad loves the outdoors)
4. I would like to stay in a nice hotel (all-inclusive possibly)
5. Within our budget (of course)
Other than that we are pretty open. I would like to go somewhere warm and beachy since it is the summer, but that is not a must. Please help!

Cleaning Out the Guest Room Part 2...

This morning I got to sleep in and it was so nice! Chad is away at a track meet until late tonight and I have some free time to get some things done today. A few weekends ago I cleaned out our guest bedroom closet and now it's time to organize our files. That is my goal for today. Hopefully I will get in there and get busy and get it all done. I just LOVE getting organized, but I have been procrastinating because I never seem to have enough time to get started. I prefer to have a full 1-2 days to complete a large project like this so that I can get it all done and not have to come back and finish later. So, we'll see how far I get!

Jenny Wilson

When we got back to Birmingham after Christmas, we were at the mall trying to exchange one of our Christmas presents and ran into Jenny Wilson. For those of you that know Jenny Wilson, that is all I have to say. I'm sure you have a smile on your face already. She is a few years older than me and ran with us at Samford. She is probably the sweetest person I have ever met in my life and took care of me my freshman year at Samford. She has been living in Birmingham for the past 3 1/2 years and just finished Physical Therapy School at U.A.B. I can't believe I never knew she was here. We also figured out that she was in Birmingham when we got married and could have come to our wedding if we would have been in touch at the time. I met up with her on Thursday night and we had dinner and talked for several hours. It was so good to see her and catch up on her life. Hopefully, we will continue to stay in touch and see each other often.
