We took a drive through Clifty Falls State Park. It was so peaceful & quiet.
Then we went back to the hotel & relaxed in this awesome hot tub!
Unfortunately, the beds were hard as a slab of rock so neither of us slept very well.
Here is a great view from the parking lot of a hotel in Madison called the Hillside Inn. This pic doesn't do the view justice. It was truly beautiful.
When we checked into the hotel & got to the room, I was amazed at how large the hot tub in the room was. I quickly snapped a picture & texted it to Liv just knowing she'd be amazed too! I noted on the pic that we should look for a room that had one of "these" when we head to Gulf Shores, AL. Surprisingly, she never responded. I was really shocked because I was certain she would be as impressed as me by it. Later that night I called her & I asked her if she got my text. She said, "Yeah, but why did you send me a pic of the sink? And, won't the hotel room in AL have a sink?" I laughed & laughed & laughed! I said, "It's a hot tub!" She started laughing too & said she thought it was the sink & she was so confused as to why #1) I'd be sending her a pic of the sink & #2) she thought all hotel rooms had sinks!
We got a good laugh over that. Today, we were eating supper & she said, "I guess if we get one in AL, I'll be able to get in the sink too!" hahahaha! (Unfortunately, we won't have one in AL because I've never found a room with 2 queen beds AND a hot tub (at least not one we can afford).)
Now back to the "real" world for a few more months. We're still saving $$$ for our vacation in May so it's back to cracking down on our spending & sticking back as much $$$ as we can. One thing I absolutely HATE to do on vacation is have to worry about money. I usually plan a vacation budget based on the things we want to do while on vacation & then I like to save enough for those things & be able to enjoy vacation without having to worry about if we're spending too much money.
This week starts my 8th week of classes too! Half way there! WOOHOO!!! I have a busy week ahead with 2 papers due & some reading that I didn't finish last week to get done on top of this week's work. Last week was crazy busy so I hope this week is a little slower.
I also ordered 2 swimsuits tonight. HOPEFULLY, I'll like one of them (& then I'll send the other one back). I hate swimsuit shopping & since we're heading to the beach this summer I gotta pick something...
Well, I'm off...hope everyone has a great week!
