Well, I have officially booked our vacation to Atlantis in the Bahamas! I think I may be slightly more excited than Brady! You can bet your bottom dollar that I am counting down the days – 70 to be exact! February 14th we will be flying out of Oklahoma City and headed to warmer weather! This -1 degree temperature has me wanting to move to the tropics!
I went back and forth on how I wanted to book this trip. I have always enjoyed planning all of our vacations and booking them myself, but thought MAYBE I could loosen the reins and let a travel agent book it. Well, needless to say that didn’t happen. I am so OCD that I have to know every last detail of the trip (that includes logging onto Delta and handpicking where we sit) and do more research on where we are going than any human should ever do. However, I am not ashamed! I’m quite certain all of my friends think I am nuts but you can guarantee I’m going to be more prepared than anyone I travel with! Call me crazy, smart, or any other word that pops into your mind, but I can’t help it.
The next piece of agenda on my vacation list is to figure out where every last restaurant, bar, and Starbucks is on the property! Everything I have read says you must have dinner reservations to go to any of the nice restaurants and they need to be made weeks in advance! I don’t plan on spending $3000 in meals while I’m there but since our anniversary is the 15th, I’m thinking we may have to hit up Nobu or Courtyard Terrace at the One&Only Ocean Club. That’s the cool thing about Atlantis; Because One&Only Ocean Club is located on Paradise Island, the Atlantis Resort guests have access to their restaurants! I have always heard amazing things about Courtyard Terrace so I’m really hoping we get to go experience that!
When I found out we were for sure going to Atlantis, I immediately went to www.victoriassecret.com and invested in some new swimsuits and cover-ups! I got one hell of a bargain on everything I bought PLUS an extra $10 off because I bought it on Cyber Monday! I have to say, figuring out what to pack is always my least favorite part of vacation. I always over-pack (what girl doesn’t), and it never fails that I change my outfit 8 times and am NEVER satisfied with what I have one.
