After a long day of flight delays, mechanical difficulties while we were in the air and a delay in baggage, I’m finally home. It’s 4am, but I can honestly say that even with the airplane setbacks we had en route that it was a stellar trip.
For most of my adult life, I have shared everything with this guy…my ups and downs, fears and accomplishments…and he has done the same with me. I feel so lucky to have finally been able to look at him face to face…and to hear his voice without holding a cell phone against my ear. He was just as wonderful as I had already known just in case you’re wondering..:)
Josh, boyfriend and I spent a lot of time together too – eating, drinking and having fun. We walked the strip yesterday too — something I would not have done when I was there last year. And I did it without feeling tired or winded which is an accomplishment for me! Last year, I wouldn’t have even tried.
The three of us went to MGM together to see Drew Carey and his amazing cast of improv performers including Ryan Stiles and several other really funny people. They taped the show for TV (probably HBO.) And we laughed as they performed for almost two hours.
I ate several unhealthy meals and consumed a bit of alcohol last night, but I’m ready to start the week in a healthy way now that I’m back home. My water bottles are filled. I will do extra cardio this week, and I’ll remind myself that when I eat well and exercise, I lose weight. A few days of less than stellar eating will not stop me from moving forward.
And I can’t forget to mention that I also got to see some friends from Oklahoma who were there. I’m telling you..it was a busy few days, but it was jam packed with moments that have already become awesome memories for me.
One great thing about vacation is that I love going home too. I can’t wait to travel to Aruba next month, but I’m so utterly thankful that home is just as exciting as any place I could visit.
