In addition to Jay’s many talents – grilling, cooking anything, and being an amazing dad – he also has a hidden talent. He’s great at planning vacations. He curls up with the laptop and within a few hours has a trip all figured out. Then, he’ll spend 10 additional nights making sure he got it right, usually setting on his original plan.
One of his many skills is picking out our accommodations. And it’s only taken eight years of us being together for me to finally relax and just trust that he knows what he’s doing. On our first trip to California in 2006 he found us a cheap hotel in Hollywood and I have to admit, I was fairly certain pimps and ho’s would be shacking up in the room next door. Turns out we stayed at the hotel where they host a ton of Oscar parties, is attached to the Kodak Theatre, and was nothing short of breathtaking. All for $80 bucks a night. Last New Year’s we headed to Key West with several friends to stay in a house Jay found on the net, and a house on the water with two kitchens, a pool and hot tub seemed a little too good to be true. We are all still thanking Jay for finding THAT one.
So, when Jay showed me the pictures of our condo on the beach in Oceanside, CA, I was 100% sure he found us another gem. Just don’t tell him that, I don’t want him to get cocky. Once we were handed the keys and walked in, I had to give him a pat on the back.
Pretty sweet, huh.
More to come on our trip...
