Spring Break

Today is the day I've been counting down to since January 3rd. (I promise I love my job, it's just I love not working more!)

It's the last day of school before we get a whole week off!! And my husband's school has the exact same week off! SCORE!

Instead of going to some tropical island, we'll be in the car for 20+ hours (one way!) all the way up to Michigan! And before you start to feel sorry for me, just know that we're so excited to be visiting FAMILY!

I thought I'd give you a preview of what it's like to be in the car with Max (my husband) and Barney (the dog) for 20 straight hours: (these events from our trip to MI last November are true in every way and not an exaggeration)

6:03 AM
Max turns off the radio. We sit in silence for a minute or two. I ask: "So, is this going to be a silent car trip, then?" Max: "SHHHH!"

7:38 AM
Max is driving. He suddenly puts both hands in the air, shouting: "LOOK! No hands!!"

11:45 AM
I say: "Hasn't Barney been great? He's been so content on my lap this whole time, he hasn't even whined." 
Barney: "whiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine."

5:54 PM
Max: "I couldn't pee in my pants, even if I wanted to."

8:59 PM
Max: "Is time standing still or is it just me?"

11:14 PM
Max: "If it wasn't for Christianity, I'd probably be a sociopath."

Well, dear friends, wish us luck!! At least there will be fun times with family ahead!


  1. haha that sounds fun! ;)
    I'm on spring break tooo!!!!
    Wish I was heading to Michigan, my very best friend just moved there after christmas :(

  2. How fun for you! I wish we all still had a spring break! your hubby sounds like a hoot!!!

  3. Car rides are the best they are so RANDOM!
    Have a wonderful trip!

  4. Road trips are the best!! Always a laugh, a grump, and in our case with kids...someone has to go potty in the middle of nowhere!

    Have a great time!

  5. L. O. L.
    HAve fun visiting your family darling!!!

  6. I LOVE road trips! My hubby gets really quiet though and I want to talk most of the trip. We manage to have a good time anyway! I hope you have a safe and fun trip!

  7. Sounds like a good time to me. I love to travel by car. This year for my daughters spring break I am taking her and 3 of her friends on our spring break road trip, they are all 18 this year so it will be interesting.

    I hope you have a wonderful time, and enjoy each others company on your 20 hour drive!

    You need to add to this scene another person in the back saying "Are we there yet?" Enjoy your time off and thx for visiting me!

  9. Sounds like fun : ) I love road trips...some of the greatest memories with my husband and kiddos--Road trips.
    Although they have their moments of grrrr with three kids and a pug : ) But fun nonetheless ; )
    Be Safe and enjoy each other

  10. I think you should do an in car vlog so we can truly appreciate the experience. HAHA!
