Headed to the Beach House

Phoebe: You’ve got me, Jason Dean. I’m yours. So no more wooing.
Jason: Okay, no more wooing. I guess I’ll cancel out helicopter to Carmel for dinner.
Phoebe: No, no, no, maybe a little bit more wooing. –Charmed

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but Match’s family is very different than mine. They have beautiful things, they enjoy wine and the finer things in life, and they have a beach house in Carmel they rent every summer. My family drinks beer and boxed wine, and camps out on the beach in the summer. Not that there is anything wrong with that at all! I love my family, but sometimes it’s nice to see how the other half lives.

Thursday morning Match and I are getting up bright and early, and taking the four hour drive to Carmel, to enjoy a much needed vacation. Because of the generosity of his parents, we get to stay in their vacation rental, relax on the beach, and we even get to bring Monkey.

I’m so excited to take a break, especially with school just starting up. I’m not very good at this whole working full time and taking night classes thing. I’m exhausted! I just don’t have the energy I did when I was 19.

I also love taking road trips with Match. We have such a good time laughing and joking in the car, and stopping at funny little pit stops along the way. I can just picture us when we’re old, going out and buying rv insurance for our Winnebago and touring the country together. Ok, maybe I won’t go that far. I like the occasional road trip, but I don’t know if I could drive all the way across the country.

So for this trip I plan to totally unplug. I’m planning to limit my blackberry time (crackberry as Match calls it) and I’m only bringing my work laptop, in case we get stuck there for some reason and I have to work remotely. I hope to not even take it out of the bag. Can’t wait to get out of town. I’ll be scheduling the Friday Photo Blog so you guys won’t miss out on the ha-has. See all you lovely bloggers when we return!
