Maine Bound!

Well kids, the Mr. and I are off to Maine ear-ly this morning. And by early I mean by the time you are reading this we have somehow managed to get our butts out of bed by 3am. That's right. I don't even remember the last time I had to go to sleep before 9pm. And most importantly, I went to bed so early I had miss tonight's season finale of TRHW of New Jersey!! Ugh, I don't know if I can make it until Saturday to watch it...

Anyway, its not really a "vacation" in the traditional sense, since we are going there for his Grandmother's memorial service (she passed away last year and this was the best opportunity for a bunch of his family members to all get together). I have, however; always wanted to go to Maine and I'm sure it will be a very beautiful, somber and peaceful trip.

I've managed to find a few incredible photos of our hotel room and I do have to say, I don't know if seafood and exploring Maine will be enough to get me to want to leave the hotel...

Now this is what I'm talking about. Except, in reality there would be Cabernet in those wine glasses.
After we feast on fresh seafood and bottles of wine, we can chill in our cozy little bedroom.

And in the morning, walk down for a river-side brunch with Bloody Marys and/or Mimosas with freshly squeezed OJ.

And then get massages in the fresh air and warmth of the beautiful sunlight...

JUST KIDDING! I wish! This is where we're really staying. The finest Best Western Bucksport, Maine has to offer... No, seriously - this is THE best hotel there.

Woo Hoo!! Gotta love that shiny comforter. Better believe I'm bringing a pair of surgical gloves to peel that germicidal comforter off the bed! Wow, I sure do hope that T.V. is in color and converted to digital by now.

Did you say 'Outdated Hideous Brass Bed Frame?" My favorite...don't get too envious of me!

At least we'll have a waterfront view, right?

See all of you wonderful readers next week. Hope you all enjoy the rest of the week and have a great (and under 100 degree weather) weekend. And I'm SO excited for next Friday when a special Guest Blogger will be stopping by House of Slappy!

P.S. My imaginary hotel is really the Mystique hotel in Santorini, Greece :)

Guuurl, you had me going for a moment. I thought I had missed the memo about Maine being the uber-hot new vacation destination.

My thoughts are with your husband and his family.
