I’m Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

Hi All!

So sorry it has taken me so long to blog.

Believe me, I do have some excuses though and it’s not quite as lame as the dog ate my blog….

First off, last week NH got hit by 2 feet of snow! Now, this is sometimes the norm deep in January but certainly NOT in October! Major problems hit because all the leaves have not dropped yet making the limbs super heavy and breaking trees all over the place. My city was hit particularly hard and many of my friends and relatives were without power for most of the week……INCLUDING the schools! Soooo…I had the kids home for 3 school days and was majorly playing catchup the rest of the week.

And,  because we were all cramped in with the unseasonable weather, I was struck down by the mother of all colds and actually DID sleep through most of the weekend! I looked half dead and absolutely NOTHING like this…

And much more like this:

And to top it all off…..I was outside with the kids in the snow and somehow sprained my knee!

BUT….Some good things also did happen while I have been away.

Business is good and we are printing away! We have recently been printing photo booth wall murals for your room or hallway. Pretty cool, huh?

AND, I booked our family vacation to HAWAII!!!!! I am soooo excited to take the kids and get some fun in the sun. We booked for February vacation which is my favorite time to leave NH. It is just about when I have lost my mind in all the snow and freezing rain. SO, I will be sitting back and enjoying this view:

A pretty cool thing happened after we booked too…We wanted to spend some time in Honolulu but wanted some down time too. I found a resort on the windward side of Oahu that seemed more laid back and less crowded (way more my speed on vacation). I was all set to book but the hotel was booked on their website so I went to expedia and booked them. I thought it meant that maybe they just had a block of rooms for sites like that… Well, the next day I got an email to call expedia and was told that the hotel I booked with was going out of business. Expedia kindly offered to upgrade us to a hotel on the North Shore and one of the few hotels not in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. Incidentally, it is also where they have filmed a BUNCH of movies and TV shows…Most famously Forgetting Sarah Marshall, recently Soul Surfer, parts of the property were in LOST, Cougar Town Hawaii episode…and many more!

It looks like this:

AND….Last but not least…I am DONE Christmas Shopping!!!! Most of the gifts for the kids are travel themed, snorkel gear, and luggage so it was easy this year but I can not tell you how glad I am to be DONE!

SOOOOOOOOOOOO…I hope you all have been well! Fill me in…What have you been up to?

Thanks for reading!
