Anyone want to make it a girls trip?

Maybe we should arrange a trip!! ( not this year, but maybe another year, wouldn't it be awesome!!)

I'm seriously considering this, mid November 2013, after dd's formal, a treat to myself for getting through the HSC!

I have discussed the possibility of taking a trip with her, but she doesn't want me hijacking her schoolies! Boo.

Now how to sweeten DH to the idea ........he will want to come too!

I'm exactly the same, the sooner I get them down the longer I can enjoy my Christmas Break guilt free!

I'm there! Unfortunately like everyone else, leaving DH behind would be difficult...

Disney baubles are at Big W for $2 each plus other Disney types. Not a big selection (at my store anyway) but they're cute and I bought 5 anyway

I am trying to morph this into an eighteenth birthday/ end of school trip for dd and I, but she is not interested, says I am using her as an excuse for a holiday and would rather I buy her a car!

That girl, knows me better than I thought!
