Enough of that, on to the shopping. It is absolutely insane, this is where all of the surplus stock goes to expire (much like many of the shoppers). The outlet malls are never-ending and the sales almost make you feel guilty for taking advantage... almost. Everything is bigger here, the mile-long malls, the 10,000 square foot homes, the supersized vehicles, the highway-looking roads, the restaurant portions, and even the jumbo "Jesus saves" billboards. Patti put it best when she said that they must have forgotten that Gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins. However, we are certainly not ones to criticize considering what we managed to consume this week. Speaking of Gluttony... we're off to Vegas!
Megan and Kevin
Well it was absolutely fabulous to be at home for a good seven weeks. We managed to spend a lot of time with family and friends catching up and enjoying the holiday season together. We ate like royalty and loved spending Christmas with everyone at home. To top it off I even convinced Megan to marry me! I guess spending 24 hours a day together for a year and a half couldn't have been all that bad... It was nice to be around family to share the news as well. We were lucky enough to extend our visit with family by heading down to Fort Myers, Florida for a week with my Dad and Patti (thanks again for a wonderful week!). So Krista, Matt, the greatest-most-perfect-baby-on-the-planet Declan, Megan and I hopped on a plane and headed for the sun. We spent the week feasting, golfing, and of course shopping. The food was awesome and the golfing was wonderful. Although we only managed to get out twice, my scorecard says that I somehow managed to fit another 18 holes in somewhere.
