10 years of wedded bliss....and banter....

Alright, so this year is our 10 year annivesary. WE've been thinking about our 10 year trip for um, about 5 years. So we're really excited about it. The only thing that is making me think that I don't want to go to one of our original 3 places (over seas) is this.....
Not only will I miss his round delicious guts, but I want to get another one started...SOON.
So, we'll deal with that when the appropriate months come (June or September). But for now, we're weighing our options....feel free to speak your mind of any of the options...of our weighing grounds.

1. London/Paris. I've always wanted to go to these 2 cities...I mean ALWAYS! And now that I love taking pictures, I want to hit them even more..
especially Paris in the winter. All of the pictures of the Eifel tower in snow draw me in, but the movie Something's Gotta Give where they meet in Paris at the end...Mmm, i want that!
So, the City of Love....first option (fyi option are in NO Particular order)
Option #2...seeming to be my #1 option for the moment since I really really want to go there and almost got there until oh, Dallas, worst city on earth, decided to have tornadoes and CLOSE ALL FLIGHTS DOWN last year for my 30th birthday. So I pretty much have been longing for Maine for almost a year. The fun antique shops on the quaint streets, the lobster stands, the trees. Obviously we'd be hitting Maine in the fall....beautiful!
Ahh yes, and onto Jase's #1...Italy. Seems to come the highest recomended, but most that recomend haven't been to ANY of the other places. And we do have no DON"T GO vote for Italy. But ahh, look at it, and think of the architecture there...adn the pictures we'd get and the food we'd eat and the gondolas and the romance. Ok, so there's Italy.
Figi
Ok, so I know Jamaica was exotic, so we should lay off the exotic for a few years, but it was sooo fun, so relaxing, so nice and sooo motivating to get rid of my fat. And Figi...that's WAY different that Jamaica. So last option....Figi.

Alright, so any imput you have on thses 4 places, SPILL...
and alas, I ask....
am I missing a destination that would make celebration of our 10 years of working, schooling, having lots of babies and moving even more memorable??? If I got to Maine, or Paris and later realized, "Lake Tagnahwa Michigan is the #1 most romantic place to celebrate your 10 year annivesary"...I think I'd be devistated...so share.
My 3 out of 185 readers that I have left that still dedicate time to blogging which is much more real life that facebook where everyoen writes about the stupid moment things rather than daily happenings, I thank you, Thank you for your time and patience with my fighting facebook urges. I'm slowing weaning myself from facebook...and returning to the meanigful life of blogging. Your imput is appreciated, and your concern is duely noted.
Thank You
See you tomarrow

Oh my gosh! That is WAY too hard to pick! I want to go to all of them now! How romantic would that be with me tagging along...

So Europe, done right is expensive. Like, food, hotels, transportation, tipping, shopping, it's all way more expensive than the US. Those three countries are not budget vacays, but if I were to pick I'd do Italy and Greece (very close to each other).

OOORR, Maine. Gorgeous. Pictures of lighthouses and foliage and wonderful. Love Maine.

Mary said...

I'd do Europe. It's expensive but worth it. Our 10 year is also this year but guess what we're doing.....a weekend downtown in Dallas. Seriously, how disappointing is that? Mia is just too exhausting to leave her with anyone for long. Maybe next year.
I've been all over Europe (not Paris though).....Italy is as great as it sounds. Wherever you go you'll have a blast!!!

I think you should do Maine because you have already planned, desired and have been longing for that trip. Do it...I think you would have a romantic, fun and safe trip. Also, you won't be as far from that baby guts you love so much:)

Jamilyn said...

Maine sounds like a fun trip especially since I know how much you have been wanting to go! but if you want to go overseas then my parents LOVED Italy and another place they really liked and I hear from everyone is super romantic is Greece. BUT Italy would be amazing!!!! We put a book together for my grandparents from there trip with my parents so if you are at there house take a look at it!

Kristal said...

um, jamilyn, your grandparents are the ones that told my parents not go to there...too dirty. ????

Jarrod & Lisa said...

I am all for tropical and exotic...so my vote is, Figi!

Jamilyn said...

what are you serious? LoL my grandparents are weirdos then cause they all had a great time, you do have to remember they are old fashion and some places over there dont have real toilets BUT thats a lot of places over there. My parents loved the Tuscany area. Any BIG city over there is going to be dirty ive heard Paris and Rome are nasty dirty.
Greece is amazing and super romantic though as well. my friend got engaged there and the picts from her and my parents that ive seen are so pretty

Shandi said...

Ok so I am with Jessica.... where ever you go... Take me too!!! :).....But you said September which = Fall which equals Maine!

Reina said...

Not sure if you remember me but I'm Amy John's cousin. Anyways I say take a cruise! They are so much fun and there are tons of places to choose from plus you can see more than one place. And all the food is included. I know it wasn't one of the choices but that is what I would do. But from you list. Maine in the fall!!

Burgess said...

I think Maine, definitely. Seems like it would be relaxing, plus it's only a short plane ride so you'd have more time. Second place -- London.

Jill said...

I LOVED Rome. But I also LOVED Prague. In fairness, I haven't been to Main or Figi.

Jaime said...

I can't offer much advice since I've never been any of those places. We're going to The Bimini Islands for our 10 yr in July. I would LOVE to go to Maine in the fall though since Fall colors are my fave. And I wish my babies got easier, mine just keep getting harder. Making me question if I really want another one. Well I do....but just don't know if I can handle another.
