Thank you, thank you for all of your suggestions! I checked out every one of the websites, and found myself trying to book each of the places for separate trips! They all sounded and looked AMAZING! Seriously people, there was this one place in Costa Rica that looked like my vision of heaven. Then the lights and shows of Vegas sounded like so much fun! Alaska would be a dream come true, and even Arkansas (erin!) had it's perks!
But a few days ago I purchased a gift for Zach that determined our getaway location.
Around the 16th hour of driving in two days (over our Christmas vacation), Zach turned down the music and made a very official announcement. He said, 'Ryan Adams is my favorite musician.' By the way, this was HUGE! Zach is a lover of music, and he has never really been able to say who his favorite band, song, musician, writer, etc. is. But Ryan Adams has won him over.
So, I secretly checked online, and Ryan Adams will be playing in San Antonio in March. It's perfect! Zach loves San Antonio and he loves Ryan Adams!
Although it is no tropical paradise and it's lights are not visible from space, I am very excited about San Antonio. I was having a hard time justifying spending lots of money for a 'vacation' when all I need is a little break from 'mommy duties', with my hubby by my side, and some good entertainment.
Santonio: here we come!... in a couple of months
