So Excited...

Yea! Going on another girls trip! Two in one year. How fancy am I?!
Two (the third is preggers and can't go) of my Shuttle Sisters  and I are going to watch the next Space Shuttle launch in May.

Now to explain a little. I never talk about work on this blog. In fact, I rarely talk about it when I'm not at work. But I will now just for the story sake. The company I work for builds the External Tank for the Space Shuttle. In case you don't know what that is, it is the large brown fuel tank pictured below.


We (Shuttle Sisters) may not be space fanatics. But we did dedicate 5yrs (7 for me) of our lives to this. Ok. We didn't dedicate our lives. But at some point in the past few years, we worked too much over time, ignored our family and friends for the External Tank. And, of course, it's why we are friends. So we kind of care about it. And I'd like to see one launch before there no more.

Plus, who doesn't want to drive 12hrs, one direction, with their friends. Lay by the pool a drink fancy, girlie drinks.  Maybe I'll squeeze a run in too.

You're going to be in MY neck of the woods?? We live 40 minutes from the Space Coast and see the shuttles (here in Orlando) when they launch. I lived in Brevard 8 yrs and have seen many launches - always gives me goosebumps!

The Shuttle Sisters will have a GREAT time!
