OMG - It's Almost Time!!

OMG!!  It is almost time for my "Sister" vacation!!  It seems so long ago that we made these plans for this trip and then all of a sudden - here it is - almost time to go!
I will be leaving the 28th of this month to go to my sister's home in Neosha, Missouri.  Then we will drive to St. Louis and fly to Seattle.  After a few days of sight seeing there, we will board our cruise ship for a wonderful cruise up the coast of Alaska!!
I am so excited!!  (As if you can't tell!)
I have been working hard to get my Etsy shop ready for my annual Christmas in July Sale with a new Christmas item each day.  While I am gone, granddaughter Tiffany will post one item each day for me.
I am not taking my Ipad or computer with me.  So, I want to make sure that everyone understands that if you order Christmas items and/or regular items during that two week period that I am gone, they will not be shipped out until the 1st of August. 
I will be tempting you in the next few days with pictures of some of my new Christmas items just to give you an idea of what I will have during July.
My sister Jeannie and I have a lot of fun things planned for us.  Her two daughters and their companions are going also and have been making all of the plans and arrangements for us.  It's been the easiest vacation ever planned.
We're going on a Whale Watching adventure, a Lumberjack Show, Mining for Gold, Bus Tours, a Fjord and Glacier Exploration and are you ready for this - I'm going to go zip-lining in Skagway!
In Seattle, our list includes Pike Place Market, Space Needle and the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum.
The nieces have made all of the hotel reservations, all of the excursions reservations, and airline reservations.
All I had to do was give them my credit card number.  LOL
So, if I seem a little occupied the next week or so, just excuse me - I'm already in Alaska in my mind.
Till next time, Judy


  1. And I miss you already. Abi and Charlie are going to be awfully lonely without you.

  2. Judy,
    Have a wonderful time. OMG!!!! You are going to have the best time. I hear Alaska is so beautiful and the cruise is fantastic. Enjoy every minute. I will miss you while you are gone.

  3. It sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun Judy, I've always wanted to go on an Alaskan cruise, but that would mean getting on a plane and that's not going to happen! Be sure you take tons of pictures, and I'll live vicariously through you!!

  4. Hope you have a wonderful time! Alaska is gorgeous and so is the Northwest.
