This year Luke and I will spend Christmas in Hawaii! Yes, I know that I already posted it before, but now it's for REAL. We just purchased our air tickets! Round trip from IAD to HNL on United - $1705. Expensive, but the best deal I've seen in a while. We could fly with ATA, but after reading some reviews, we decided to stay away. We didn't want to take any chances. But yeah, we get in at 9pm on the 16th of Dec and we board Pride of Hawaii on the 17th! YAY! As of right now, we are spending roughly $5200 to get us to Hawaii (air, cruise, and hotel stay afterwards). I think it will end up be cheaper since I am having seconds thoughts about Hawaiian Village. We will see, I still go some time to play around with the numbers.
Also, the other day I was able to "upgraded" our cabin from Deck 5 to Deck 11. There are only a few inside cabins on Deck 11, 90% are mini-suites. We will be mingling with the riches. When I told Luke that, he just said, "Nah, we don't like windows anyway." Hahahah, he so funny! :) Windows are for the birds!!

I was soooo looking forward to this weekend. We were supposed to get our marriage license, mail out invitations, and go pick up Pesto! The week started out slowly, as expected because a big weekend coming up. It went downhill on Wednesday night when the breeder called and said "Pesto" is going to be 6 to 6.5 pounds full grown, which is too big for Pargo. What a disappointment. Of course, we are happy that she was honest with us. We didn't want to bring home a dog that Pargo isn't comfortable with. Still though, what a downer! We will still get him, but now it's just waiting again.... We were so excited last weekend that we ordered Pesto's dog tag already. Luke ordered it and used my soon-to-be last name. :) He wanted to get a new tag with Pargo with the new name, but I said no. I want to keep it as is for memory. :)
Today we both left work early so we could get to court before it closes at 3:30 to get our marriage license. When we got there, the lady told us that the system is down and won't be back up for another hour. Sucks!! Now we gotta leave work early again on another day and go back to the stupid place. UGH!!
We are still sending out the invites tomorrow. Everything is signed, sealed, and just needs to be delivered. Since we live pretty close to the post office, we will just walk and take Pargo with us.
Speaking of Pargo, he's so weird. Here is a photo of him under the couch, he has never done that before, so Luke couldn't resist.
I was hoping that my next update could have photos of the marriage license and Pesto, but hopefully it won't be long before I post them!
