Fancy Pants

Motherhood is the most beautiful experience I've ever had. All of the bad hair days, body issues, nights in, early mornings are completely worth it. I love Matilda more than I ever thought possible. She literally makes me gush. My friend Brittany says I have a crush on her and it's true! All of this to say that although my life is as full and blessed as its ever been, I'm craving some glamour these days.  I find myself fantasizing about romantic nights out with my husband and exotic trips. A vacation is really long overdue, and because Clark Howard mislead us about tickets to Hawaii, we're rethinking our plan and looking at Costa Rica

Have you been?

Diane Von Furstenburg

Was she inspired by Aretha?

I love your blog and have been reading it for awhile now...I have been to Costa Rica and it is beautiful! We stayed in Manuel Antonio at Costa Verde: http://www.costaverde.com/

Sad you're not going to Hawaii anymore! (we're still on for September for the belated honeymoon). One of my girlfriends just got back from Costa Rica and adored it though. And what fantastic pictures you show!

I have always wanted to go to costa rica, it looks so beautiful, I think you will have a great time and it will less expensive than hawaii! I have heard from everyone that that jantzen swimsuit is the best, most flattering swimsuit ever!

I was totally misled by that Clark Howard email announcement too! I was so ready to pounce and couldn't find anything less than $700ish. Which is um, the normal price for a flight. Womp womp.
