Well, our vacation plans have changed. Instead of Busch Gardens and Water Country USA in Virginia, we opted for Kennywood and Sandcastle in Pennsylvania. The reason why we changed the vacation destination you may ask. Well, two reasons actually. The first reason was that 2 hours and 15 minutes is a lot better drive than 6 hours and 15 minutes. The second reason was that a trip to PA is much cheaper for us than a trip to Virginia by about 3 to 4 hundred dollars. Money was the main factor. We decided we would have just as much fun in PA as we would in VA plus we would save a few hundred dollars.
We are leaving on Friday July 30 and coming back home the night of Sunday August 1st. I am super excited! Not just because of going to Kennywood and Sandcastle but because the hotel we are staying at is only nine short minutes away from the Monroeville Mall. If any of you are horror movie freaks (as I am) than you will know that, the Monroeville Mall is where they filmed many scenes from George A. Romero’s classic 1978 film Dawn of the Dead.
Needless to say I have been working my ass off these past few weeks to get extra money for vacation. I am looking forward to getting away for the weekend and not have to worry or deal with the normal everyday problems such as the living arrangements and pathetic people in my life.

Yay for vacation! <3 Saving money is always nice. 🙂 I spent one night in a nice hotel last weekend and it was an excellent way to crash into zero stress zone. 😀
