Our holiday trip is booked for Christmas! I know I blogged about this before, but we decided to shorten our trip this year since we have new staff starting at the office and I don't really think I should be leaving for two weeks right now. So, we are going to take a longer trip sometime in the beginning of 2012 to make up for the missed time off. Anyway, I wanted to pick someplace where we could both relax and take some little day trips to do things outside where we would be staying.

I started looking at Jamaica (Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Negril) and Mexico (Puerto Vallerta and Cabo). Went back and forth for a while before booking today, and the winner is:

Ocho Rios! :)

Can't wait. My resort requirements were adults only (preferably, couples only), wireless internet in room (preferably for free), gym on premises of hotel (with weights and cardio) and large rooms. Ended up booking at the Couples Sans Souci in Ocho Rios. After searching and pricing things out, ended up getting a Penthouse Suite for the price of a normal room on Travelocity, so I was happy. I had a really hard time picking a place, but this one had everything we were looking for. I like this place too as they pick you up for free at the airport.

There are already a couple tours I know I want to do while there, like this kewl ATV tour up a mountain, and another to a waterfall. There are some with dolphins and sharks............................

First week with Angie at the office has been awesome. She has been SOOO much help with hearings and phone calls and paperwork, and she has only worked one week so far. Everyone else loves her at the office too and she fits in perfectly. So happy about this decision that we made to hire her.

Off to bed, happy weekend! :)

We've been to Ochos Rios. We climbed up this super cool waterfall. The only thing I didn't like about Jamaica is that you're pretty much stuck at the resort due to safety. However, as long as you're prepared for that and your resort is nice, that's not such a bad thing. :)

We plan on taking some day trips and stuff, but since we are there such a short time, I think I will be OK. You are right though, we generally don't like being confined, LOL.

First heard of Kurt through Alex Jones show. Your actions after the underwear bomber incident were nothing short of heroic. I am so glad everything turned out well even though you didn't.

Wish you practiced in Alabama, I'd keep you on retainer just in case I needed representation.
