Cheers w/ Diet Pepsi!!!

This is the trip I've been wanting to take for about 10 years now, ever since the boys started asking, "When do WE get to go to Awooba?" I said - "When you're both 18!"
(and can drink and gamble, etc. - such a bad mom!). We've had our hotel rooms booked for a few weeks. I just finished booking our plane tickets, and it took forever. Being the thrifty shopper that I am and with miles in 4 different accounts (2 of us, 2 airlines), I found the best deals possible - in all classes. Mike decided we were flying First Class down, and just extra leg room going home. So with a combo of miles and cash, we are all four flying First Class on Delta w/ direct flight from ATL on 5/28 and all miles to fly American through Miami back on 6/3 - coach w/ extra leg room. We might throw in some upgrade certificates to get on the 1st class upgrade list.

I'm so excited to take the boys on this trip - and to make it somewhat 'luxury' for them, w/out costing us a fortune! We're just staying at Holiday Inn, but all on bosses points, and bc of his status, we will likely get the upgrade like last year to high floor on nicest tower.

This will celebrate both our kids graduating HS and Mom/Dad becoming Empty Nesters! :D :( :shock: :D

Cheers. Enjoy your Friday night! Now, off to a nail appointment.
