Time to Escape!

I am so ready for 5 o'clock...
...because I'm jumping in a car with BF and heading out of town! My family has already been up at the Lake of the Ozarks for a few days now, so we're excited to finally meet them out there. The lake house they rented sounds absolutely amazing!

My cute little sister (who is a senior in high school) sent me a text and photo as soon as they arrived on Monday...

"OMG! This place is so awesome! There are like two huge
living rooms and the backyard is so cool! We can watch movies
at night, because there are like 4 TVs! OH!!! Bring some movies... and some finger nail polish remover! :D"

{ Gotta love her enthusiasm... and ADD moments. }

So needless to say, when my alarm clock went off this morning I jumped out of bed. It's vacation day!! This is honestly the first vacation time I have taken off that wasn't for a Friday night wedding in soooo long! I'm looking forward to actually relaxing for once! The lake is always so peaceful...

What's on the agenda, you ask?

+ roadtripping with my main squeeze
+ time with le family
+ jet skiing
+ floating on pool rafts
+ sleeping in
+ breakfast out on the patio
+ evening swims
+ sunset watching
+ late nights by the bonfire
+ making homemade meals
+ boating all day
+ movies at night
+ board games
+ making sweet memories
+ enjoying life

Naturally, I'm going to need a theme song for this trip. Good thing I absolutely love "Knee Deep" by Zac Brown Band. Amazing. Take a listen, you will fall in love with it too...

I promise that I will actually take pictures for once - the camera is PACKED - updates to come! Catch you when I get back from paradise all tanned and happy...
Have a happy week, ya'll!
