Blasting off for a little R&R on Sunday morning.  Actually, it’s more than a vacation.  Some of you may know that on February 6th, I turn 40, and I intend to celebrate a bit.  Starting with 5 days at Disney/Epcot and the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel.  Yes, even at 39, I’m a little old for Disney, but I’ve never been and I can’t think of a better time to go, can you?!  Two cheers for Starwood Preferred Guest’s 5th night free program!

After our Disney visit, we will travel down to Port Canaveral and board Royal Caribbean’s Monarch of the Seas where we are hosting my 40th birthday party with 24 friends and family attending.  Putting together a group cruise has been interesting and fun.  It’s been great working with our fabulous travel agent, Michelle, at McCabe World Travel in McLean, Virginia.  Can’t wait to go, even if it is a short weekend cruise.

As is always the case, work has been extra busy this week in preparation for my departure, so I apologize for the dearth of posts.  Even though I’m on vacation, I intend to post about the Disney experience, the hotel, and the entire trip.  I hope the Admirals Club is serving Mimosas early Sunday morning, because I intend to start the party early!
