Leavin' on a jet plane..

A few weeks ago, Mr. Red House called me from work.  "Hi, honey," he said.  "Guess what I won today - an all-expense paid vacation for two for 4 days and 3 nights to Monte Carlo!"  "Yeah, right," I replied.  "No, I'm serious," said Mr. Red House.  "We're going to Monte Carlo!"

My mind raced.  Mr. Red House is pretty tenderhearted, but I would have thought him to be too smart to fall for such an obvious scam!  Did he give them bank account information? What in the world did we actually pay for this 'vacation'?  Could we get out of it?  Did we need to start calling our credit card company?

But my fears were unfounded.  Mr. Red House had actually won a vacation as an award through his work for his last project.  We are going to Monte Carlo!!

We are leaving this weekend, so that means that I will be on a blogging vacation all next week.  Time for some rest and relaxation! 


Not that I plan to rest too much - I'm going to be that badly dressed tourist happily snapping pictures of everything.  See you in a few days with lots of pictures, I'm sure.  Until then, happy gardening!

Do you think four pairs of shoes are too many to pack?..

  2. Fantastic news. Enjoy. If you don't have to haul luggage, then 4 pairs is just perfect.

  6. have a great stay on the French riviera ! Now on the other hand, such a loooong flight for just 3 nights... Can't you stay a bit longer ? There's so much more to see than seaside concrete MonteCarlo along the riviera !
