Spring Fling '09

Alright ladies, for those of the Bosley persuasion (by blood or marriage), it's that time of year!  Spring Fling is exactly one month away!  I am giddy with excitement.  Can't wait.  And this year I won't have my kids.  I love those boys, but I am ready for some girl time.  Too much testosterone around here.    
Okay, so I got word a few of you were a little concerned about the details.  No worries!  I reserved the house back in October, and made the down payment in November.  Now if some of you have visited the house's site and checked out the availability calendar, it does say that the house is available for March 26-29.  This is ONLY because they hardly ever update their calendar.  I even called just to make sure.  We are booked and ready to go!  

Anyway, here is some info on our fabulous vacation spot.  The house is located in a gated community, very fancy.  But for some reason I was informed that we are to avoid using the front gate at ALL costs.  I thought this was funny, but whatever.  Anyway, the house sleeps 12 people, but we can have as many as there is floor and couch space for.  Isn't that how we do everything anyway?  Who needs to sleep comfortably when we've got stories to tell and food to eat?  Comfortable sleeping is for wimps.    

As you can see we have a pool and there is also a hot tub.  No one to steal our chairs!  The pool is heated, just in case it's a bit chilly.  The house has 5 bedrooms (2 master suites) and a bathroom for each bedroom, plus one extra.  The house is 5,246 square feet.  Plenty of floor space for air mattresses.  The kitchen is fully stocked.  You know, for all those meals we prepare.  Right.

I am just so excited, I can barely stand it.  Did I mention I will be sans kids?  Now the house is $399.00 a night, plus $150.00 cleaning fee which is non-refundable.  So the total comes to $1347.00 plus tax.  So if we have 21 (just an estimate) adults, that comes to about $64.00 plus whatever tax will be a person.    

Check in time is at 4:00 pm and checkout time is 12:00 pm.  I just need to call a few days before we check in and someone will meet us with a key.  But whatever you do, do not enter through the front gate.  There could be frightening consequences.  Or they just direct you to another gate.  

As you can see, it is fully furnished, and fancy at that.  I do have to say that I will miss that sunflower monstrosity from last year.  

Awwww, the pool and hot tub.  And look at those chaise lounge chairs with no towels reserving them for the entire day. 

So hopefully, this puts your concerns to rest.  This will be a great stay and I've got it all under control.  With no kids. 


Be Mine and Other News...

So I haven't been around for a while, but I'm going to try to return to my old blogging self.  So let's catch up on a few things.  I'm pregnant.  Yeah!!  I was going to find some cute way to announce this tidbit, but oh well.  There you go.  I think my due date is around August 21.  I say "think" because I haven't been to the doctor yet.  So I will keep you updated on this.  

Matthew had a Valentine's Day party today and came home with tons of cards and candy.  He was very excited about his haul.  
There is a cute little girl in his class named, Maggie.  Apparently, she often asks Matthew to be her boyfriend.  But not ready to move out of our house and in with her, he turns her down.  I need to stress that we don't live with boyfriends and girlfriends.  I'll save that for a future discussion.  He does say when he's older, Maggie will be his girlfriend.  

And just so Curly isn't left out, here's a shot of his ever-smiling face.
