Tons of Wonderful Memories!

Panama City Beach 2010
Many wonderful memories on our mother/daughter trip. Enjoy!!
So for those of you that see my updates to facebook this trip will be no suprise or maybe it will because for all of you that know me well, know that being OCD takes away my ability to fly by the seat of my pants. 

That being said, I have learned a very valuable lesson from this trip:

Sometimes it pays to be last minute. Some of the best things in my life have happened at the last minute. So to calm my OCD fears I have decided that there is a much better way to look at this. Last minute things are really not last minute, they just weren’t in my plans. However they were in God’s plan and since he had the plans for my life planned out long before I was born I can now rest easy knowing they were planned for me all along.
How our unexpected trip came about:
Amanda lucked upon a free condo. Her, Ady, Lia and Maci had plans to go. At the last minute they ask me and Caroline to go for a fun week of mother daughter time. So who can pass up a free trip? Well not me! Beach, free I’m there! Oh wait did you say we are leaving in 5 days!? But I put my OCD aside and pulled it off. Then the Monday before we were leaving Lia had some stuff at work come up and wasn’t going to be able to go. A little bummed cause Lia couldn’t go, Amanda and I decided to still go, so off we went.
We had the best time. We spent most of our time on the beach but still found time for lots of great seafood. The beaches were beautiful, no oil in sight. Caroline and Ady were both very well behaved and had a great time together. It was nice to spend time just me and Caroline and there couldn’t have been a more perfect place than the beach for these two beach babes!
We made it! Caroline is so excited!
