We're going to St. John (U.S. Virgin Islands) for our anniversary in July!!! Bathing suit vacation!
We realized a few days ago that we could fly there, rent an amazing house and a car for a week for the same amount of money we would spend to just rent an apartment in Catalina (off the coast of LA)...unbelievable. So we've canceled our place in Catalina and are now going to the Caribbean!
I am so excited. Neither of us has been there before. The majority of the island is national park so there is not a lot of development. And, of course, we chose to stay on the LEAST developed side too! ;-) The view from "our" house looks amazing and there is snorkeling (my favorite) galore all over the island.
So...every time I want to eat or drink something "bad" now, I think "bathing suit photo". It's amazing how powerful that is to get me to STOP.
I told DB maybe we need bathing suit vacations twice a year to keep in shape... ;-)
