One of the best parts about Christmas this year was having a nephew who believes in Santa Claus. Watching Morgan set out the treats for Santa and then get SO EXCITED the next morning was enough to make me want to get pregnant on the spot.
I've been thinking about whether as adults there is anything as exciting as Christmas Eve when you are a kid. I'm not sure there is although I've never experienced Wedding Eve or Baby Due Date Eve, I imagine those come close.
However, I have discovered that finally getting to do something you've been wishing for ever since you can remember is coming awfully close.
I AM TOTALLY GOING TO HAWAII NEXT MONTH!! I realize that I might be one of the last people in America who has never been to Hawaii, and I realize that there are probably 10 other islands with fewer tourists that are just as pretty if not prettier. But I don't care. I have wanted to go ever since my parents spent a week there when I was nine and my mom came home and raved about the shaved ice for about a year. I actually giggled when I hit the "buy this itinerary" button for my ticket. Major credit goes to Corey who has learned that if she plans something fun and tells me about it, I'll probably go.
So if you have any North Shore must do suggestions, lay them on me.
