I am getting the travel bug. I LOVE to travel. Sometimes I think to myself, "I haven't really been anywhere." And then I stop again and realize that I have been lots of places. I have been pretty lucky. Anyway, one of my friends just invited me to go to Germany and Poland. Wroclaw Rynek
I want to go so badly! I need to go back. I love this place. But, with Beyonce's repairs, practically zero tax return (thanks for nothin!!), and my car insurance premium due, I just won't be able to go. For a split second, I thought about selling my beloved. But then I thought, "How dare you even consider it! You love her!" Bah! So that is not even an option. I would feel like Benedict Arnold. Oh and I also bought this.
Not the guy on it, he's my cousin. And besides, you can't buy people. The four wheeler! My sister asked me why I did that, and I just told her "Because I wanted it." And I did. I really wanted it. So with all those things, I have drained my excess cash.

So, I have planned a few smaller trips that will keep my travel appetite under control. I can't even wait. I am going to Vegas tomorrow to see Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian. I hear it is fantastic!! We got round trip airfare for $50, and flying makes travel so much easier. So we bought them, booked a hotel, and got some Phantom tickets. Did I mention I can't wait?!

Then, a few days ago, I consorted with the BFF and I am headed out to Chicago at the end of March. Can. Not. Wait. "[Chicago] is so diverting!" Tons of stuff to do, but mostly, I am super excited to hang with the BFF, her little doll, and her hub. Oh, and we are going to see Beauty and the Beast. I just love going to the theatuh! And that is one of my favorite Disney movies, so it's a win-win all around! And since Chicago has the second largest Polish speaking population (second only to Warsaw), maybe I will be able to score me some Polish goodies. We'll see :) That will have to satiate my Poland hunger for now.

Ooh, tough choice on the Europe trip. I hate how far away Poland is- why can't we get $50 round-trip tickets and go for the weekend? That would be HEAVEN. I can't wait to hear about Chicago!
