HOORAY!!!! After many, many, MANY years of dreaming of coming to America - WE FINALLY ARE!!!! WooHoo!!!

We decided its now or never - especially since our dollar is faring so well against the US$ at present! So we bit bullet, and have purchased our tickets to our 'Californian Dream' tour! Well, I say tour... but we haven't booked a proper tour... its just us, booking as we go!!

We plan on a couple of weeks in Anaheim, around a week in Las Vegas, then finishing off with a few days in Santa Monica or Hollywood (I haven't decided yet!)!! I'M SOOOO EXCITED!!!

So, if you've got nothing better to do in May next year, and you want to meet some FANTASTIC Aussies (that really want to meet you!!!) you better get your butts to California!!!

We toyed with the idea of hiring an RV and doing a "Robin Williams style" RV tour across America... but figured with three kids, in a tiny RV, that we're not only driving in, but living in... I'd probably end up killing someone... or four!! (and I could totally see us wearing poo, as RW did in his movie, when emptying the poo tank, too!!!) So... this trip its just the West Coast - hotels & shuttle buses!! No poo fountains. No confined spaces for hours at a time!

Did I tell you I was EXCITED?!!!!


Email me if you want specifics! goingdigi@gmail.com
(yes its a different address - was having issues with my four2five one!)
PS my folks will still be at home... just in case you thought this was a good opportunity to visit my house when I'm not there!!!

Oh, I am so excited for you! And I wish we were in CA so that we could see you. Although - ya know - DC is a great place to visit, too. (hint, hint) Even though we won't see you, I just know you'll have an amazing time! Enjoy your trip!

I second what Lisa said! You need to come to the southeast! :)

I've been to California (San Diego and Los Angeles areas) and Las Vegas, so I know you are going to have a blast!

Oooo...you're going to have such a great trip!! I wish I lived closer but sadly we're a 5 hour flight away and won't be there in May. Have a great trip!!!

Well isn't that fun! I just loved the name of the post, not to many times do you see that one!

If Georgia is on your list, then I'd love to meet you & I can think of a few other fellow GA gals that would be excited.

Sounds like so much fun! Sure wish I could meet you but Ohio is pretty far from California. And I might even be in China in May (...or hopefully already home from there!)
