The pile has begun

In 11 long days, I will be sippin pina coladas with my ma on the beach and dancing my butt off in the disco with Michael in Edy in COZUMEL, MEXICO!

My family is having our Tate, Hodges, Sanchez, Taylor reunion at an all inclusive resort. Ohh yess. My goal was to get in ultimate beach bod shape before this trip by Zumba-ing twice a week with Alex+basketball. But having two sprained ankles for the past 3 weeks has not helped the cause. I'm super sad because Dave and Matt won't be able to come due to work. :( But I could NOT miss out on this. My uncle is trying to convince me to go sky diving. N.O.T. going to happen.

The clothes-going-in-the-suitcase pile has begun! I called Granny, and she said she's been packed for 3 weeks already! Love that lady :)
My blogging skills have been lacking since I now work at least 55 hours a week.

The breakdown is: 40 hrs. a week nannying+5 hrs. a week cleaning a house+1 to 2 photo shoots per week+hours editing pictures=tired Rachel.

My inability to sleep at night has magically been cured. I hit the pillow, and I'm out! Lately, Matt has been building his viodegraphy portfolio. He comes with me to my engagement shoots and weddings, and records videos for my clients! We are building an empire basically :)

We are speaking at church on Sunday AND teaching teenagers about dating on Saturday at Youth Conference. Woooo!

Ok. I'm tired.

11 more days...

I am more than excited to see everyone!! It is going to be a BLAST and I am going to be keep my 5 crown ring so get ready. Yea Rae did you forget that you were a Spears before kinda like Edy and Michael LOL. It will be a much needed rest for all of us for sure. I have my "pile" working also and should get it packed and ready this weekend. I can't wait to share some non alcoholic pinas with you. That is a great tradition for sure. =) We wont have Dave to stop us! Don't forget "STINKY" Carlene said the pillows are usually hard along with the bed. Along with Jess, I will be dancing the night away. I have been working on my MJ moves like the ones in the kitchen (what a funny night). Love ya mucho boo and I'll see ya in 9 more sleeps.
