JANUARY FREE & CHEAP EVENTS (January 22 – January 24, 2016)

Hi Everyone,

 

I just came back from a last minute trip to Jamaica. We chose Jamaica because the weather was sunny all week. I stayed at the Ibero Star Rose Hall Suites in Montego Bay. The resort is an all-inclusive and the kid’s had a fantastic time. I barely saw them all day. The staff were so friendly and were amazing with Brooklyn and Bentley. My kids didn’t want to hang out with me. I had so much time on my hands that I bought a book and actually got to read on this trip.  I haven’t done that since before I had kids! Now I am home and back to real life. Sigh …

The calendar is still quiet but it will pick up as we get into February!

Have a great weekend!
