I made a post about my husband & I going on a beach vacation this summer. We changed our minds!
With our taxes we plan on doing a few things –
1. Get a new living room suite.
2. Pay off my husband’s crotch rocket.
3. Pay off our small credit card debt (walmart card) 700 dollars.
So with that being said we wanted money left over & decided we are instead going to Tennessee for a couple days to… Go on a hotair balloon ride!!!!!!! lol I am sooo excited! I LOVE doing new things & my husband & I LOVE doing new things together! I have wanted to do this since 2009 when I first found out about them being only a few hours away from us. Eeeeek! It lasts anywhere from like an hour-two hours or so. You go over amazing rolling hills and lakes. It is suppose to be so beautiful!
Anyone else been on a hotair balloon ride?

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose: I haven’t been but a hot air balloon ride sounds so fun and romantic!! Much more exciting and memorable than the beach! And I just had to google what a crotch rocket was, I was thinking something inappropriate haha

Those are all awesome things to do with your tax return. Knocking out debt is always a good thing! A hot air balloon is a really cool idea! I’ve heard of people having picnics while they’re on the ride. I’d probably panic and make it a terrible experience for both Fiance and I, though, because I’m afraid of heights. 😉

@Aure: I have read abouts weddings in them!!! So cool! lol
Yes, we def don’t want any big debt (as we only use debit no credit now.) So the small amount of debt that we do have (other than hospital bills) we want to knock out all in one swing with our taxes! 🙂
LOL I am hoping to just enjoy the view & not be to scared! I am pretty good with those things though.. I love the views when my husband & I go hiking in the mountains! 😛
@Nicoley1985: LOL Its a bike!! hahahaha I am hoping so 🙂 Plus we can also do the beach another time. 🙂

I’ll live the experience through you 🙂 I’m so deathly afraid of heights I would have a complete nervous breakdown in one. I have a hard enough time flying on a plane!

Oh my goodness, Mrs. Estep, you are braver than I! I would just die being that high up. I’m sure the views will be worth the butterflies, though! I can’t wait to see your balloon pics!!
Also, ahaha @ “crotch rocket”. 😛
