Pink is my favorite color except...

When it's the color of my eyeball.

I woke up yesterday with pink eye.


When it rains, it freaking pours.

I'll leave it at that.

In better news, spring break is quickly approaching and I absolutely can't wait. Chris and I are actually taking a... gasp... vacation! Not a vacation centered around family or bike races (although there will be some biking involved). We are heading west and expect to hit Fruita, Moab, Zion, Vegas, and Santa Barbara among the many other towns along the way over our nine day break from reality. We will camp half of the nights and stay the other half in fun hotels. Chris has put a lot of planning into this vacation and I can't wait to get away. For those 9 days, we will not worry about work, responsibility, house cleaning, training, or babies (in fact, we are intentionally taking advantage of this DINK -- dual income, no kids -- lifestyle that we have while it lasts). We are going to get away... with each other... for SPRING BREAK 2009! Woo! The fluids are changed in the car and now we just have one week to wait...

Now I need to grow a white eyeball.

Here are some pictures of our last non-family, non-bike race vacation. We were bright-eyed and bushy-tailed after our wedding almost four years ago. For those bike friends of ours who don't believe Chris was ever out of shape and "fat" (which he wasn't ever fat, but we refer to the honeymoon as his "fat" phase because he was 25 lbs heavier back in the day) I hereby present these photos:

Ummm, I look fat :) that is all.

Yay vacation!

The question isn't how big He is, but how big that t-shirt he's wearing in the first photo is...

you let him out of the house like that???

Was that his Rapper phase???

I'd chastise you, but you're sick :) And, well, we're not always responsible for the oddness of our men. Hope you're feeling 100% for your vacation!!!

p.s. How'd you get him to arrange a vacation not centered around bicycles??? Does the potion involve eye of next, and can you give me the recipe???
