Viva Las Vacation!

We get to go to VEGAS!!! A second honeymoon, here we come! Last night Brad and I attended a sales pitch for a time share with Wyndham resorts in exchange for two nights and three days in Vegas. It's one of those things where you're not obligated to buy anything, but they make it hard to say no. Good thing I'm a champ at telling people no. Really, they did a good job pitching the time share. It's a great deal, but Brad and I didn't have $30,000 laying around, so it was pretty simple to say "no thanks." So, now we get to go on a vay-cay to Vegas sometime in the next few months. Nice! If anyone wants to come along with us, go right ahead. The more the merrier! (Mostly I need someone to distract Brad while I go hit the Double Double Bonus Poker machines.)

We test drove the Nissan Quest last night and I was shocked at how smooth and sound proof it was. It was hard to not just buy it immediately. But, we've decided to wait another 6 months before making any vehicle purchases. It's a lot of money and obviously we need to make sure we're comfortable with the car payment.

This weekend we're heading up to Iowa again. Brad's Mom's kitchen is going to be demo'd any day now, so Brad wants to make sure everything is a-ok for that. Poor Janette has sold all of her appliances already and is living without a stove, dishwasher and fridge! We lent her our mini-fridge that used to hold Brad's college alcohol supply. At least she can keep milk at her disposal now. And Red Bull for Brad.
