Thank Goodness

All I have to say is, THANK GOODNESS FOR MOTHERS!!

Pic from Oct 2009

I am sad to admit that I took for granted all of the vacations my mom planned for the family and the blood, sweat, and tears that went into them .... BUT I absolutely recognize and am thankful for it now, hah.  That still counts right?  My mom is a traveling queen considering she is a flight attendant and just really good at it.  She traveled on a Tahitian Cargo ship just because, went to China by herself, and the Holy Land with a group from church.  She is WILD to do all this and leave Dad at home, but hey why not!!!!!

She was in town for a Seattle overnight, which means we get a few hours to play, spend time together, and make a quick visit to Trader Joe's!!!!!!  Plus, we got to Skype with the rest of my family .... Guess who isn't homesick anymore :)  

SO, I mentioned to her I was extremely frustrated attempting to our trip to Thailand.  I have been so excited about it, but I just feel like I can't make any strides because it is so difficult getting things to come together when it is on the other side of the world, and I hate the fact that I just can't pick up the phone and call someone without going through a travel agent.

WELL, Momma Lugar helped me out tremendously and shared with me a little site that I think is pretty heavenly.  You better believe that I will be spending hours on it in the next couple days because it simplifies traveling and makes it easy!  HECK YES!!!  


Hubby ...... 
you and me are officially PLANNING 
and making HEADWAY on Thailand!
WOOHOO

dud, no wonder your mom is an amazing planner. that's how my dad is -- but that's because he travels for business all the time. that man knows how to get in an airport and get out faster than anyone i've ever met.

What a fun trip! I have always wanted to go (and probably will at some point) so please take notes and share! I planned a trip to Japan for last week that fell through, but I always love a good long-distance travel plan.

A Real Housewife said...

this looks like an awesome website! thanks to you...and your mom...for the tip!!!

Jamie said...

Thanks for the travel site. I'll have to check it out. Traveling stresses me out too with all the planning and prep work. I was debating about a flight yesterday because I'll only have a 40 min connection and I'll be flying alone with Ava. I usually allow for 1-2 hours when I fly with just her. Good luck planning!

Ali said...

Ooooh, a new travel site -- always good!

Glad things are looking up for you now!

Kyle said...

We are going to Thailand in June. We booked everything through Journeys Within. http://www.journeys-within.com/

They have been so amazing and helpful. We have a full two weeks planned and I think it will be the best vacation of our lives! I can't believe what an amazing trip we have planned for what we are paying.

BUT I do have friends who have completely planned it on their own using websites - including agoda.com.

Good luck!!

Lil' Woman said...
