So, The Boy and I are officially going on vacation!!! We've been talking about it for a while, doing our research, and planning things out, mostly trying out different combinations of dates and online travel planners to see whether or not we could afford it. Aaaand thanks to beachdestinations.com, we can! I got a $500 referral bonus from work (for referring someone who was actually hired), which will cover almost all of my half of the flight and hotel for 6 nights on Kauai! We're not going until October, which gives us plenty of time to plan (and save for spending money when we're there); if you've been to Kauai recently, and you have any suggestions of awesome things to do or things that we absolutely should not miss, please feel free to leave it in the comments or email me: kimskitchensink [at] gmail [dot] com (long run-on sentence)! We're staying at the Aloha Beach Resort in a cheap cheap "garden view" room - maybe it'll get upgraded based on availability, maybe not, but hey, how much time are we going to spend sitting in the hotel room anyway, right?
Anyway, I'm super excited, and we just bought our tickets and hooray! A real, live, grown-up vacation!
