Punta Cana, Dominican Republic…Here We Come!!

We LOVE to travel!!

As busy as we both are, that time to unwind and relax is super important for us!!

We both work a few side jobs and save every single penny of it so we can go on one mack daddy vacation every year.  It’s totally worth it to us to work hard, play hard.

We’ve been saving and pinching pennies all year in preparation for some Baby Butler’s (in the future) and didn’t think we would be able to go anywhere this year.

Thankfully, the Lord has really blessed us with some awesome income opportunities and we are so grateful! We have still been very frugal and both busted our tails this summer with lots of side jobs to make sure this didn’t put a dent in our savings…

It definitely helped that we have a rockin’ travel agent who totally hooked us up!!!!

Last year we went to Mexico with some of our BFFs, the Doss’…and had the time of our lives!

This year (well, today actually) we are heading to the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC with some of our other BFFs, the Adams’….(but not Maggie…she’s staying with her Nana…)

So we’ll be hangin’ here for the next WEEK….

Ahhhhhh, paradise!!!

And even more than that, I’m looking forward to some SERIOUS quality time with my boo and our BFFs. Jonathan & I have both been so busy with our new businesses. I know it won’t always be that way….It takes a lot of work to get a new business going in the beginning. But, that just makes me THAT MUCH more EXCITED about this trip and spending time with him! I don’t think I’ll leave his side for the next 7 days…

Plus, I make really great “traveling company",” so I’m sure they’re pretty pumped…(you can’t see the drool….but please believe….it’s there!)

Success School 011

When we get back, it’s back to school time. {That was me whispering it…I try not to say it too loudly}. I know lots of people are ready to get back to work and a “routine,” but I have NO problem with not having a routine. I am ridiculous and PACK my schedule every.single.day, so I don’t even have time to miss my routine.

(That is DEFINTELY something I plan to work on before we have kiddos! it’ll definitely take some effort because I honestly don’t know how to live any other way…)



So, I plan to take FULL ADVANTAGE of a full week of NOTHING before heading back to reality.

 

Hope you enjoy this next week too!!!

Love your blog and all the information on your supplements!!

It is a lot of information, and even though you do a great job describing everything in narrative, it would be super awesome to see it scheduled...and would make it so much easier to understand how and when you take your supplements...does this makes sense? Like a "day in the life"...with how you actually use the products.

It seems like an awesome system but without really seeing how you take all the products for someone like me who's only ever taken a prenatal, it is really overwhelming. Just a thought!

Enjoy vaca! We got preggo with our son in August. ;) April/May is a great time to have a baby!! :)
