i am LUSTING after a caribbean trip sometime during tri-2 -- which i realize puts us in the middle of the high season, like jan-feb.
only trouble is, we're self employed and it's really hard to get time away from work... we generally have to do so much hectic preparation and catch-up before and after any time off, that the stress and sleeplessness cancels out any restorative effects the vacation was intended to provide.
recently i've been thinking about booking time at a nearby b&b instead, where we can just hole up with hot chocolate and cuddle for a couple of days, and avoid most of the travel time. maybe for our special vacation type stuff, we can do a couple of spa treatments or something. or, perhaps going to florida instead of the caribbean, to help save money.
i know it's like, super decadent w/all the expenses a baby will bring, but it's a really fond dream for me - the whole time we've been married all our travel has been for work, to see family, with friends etc. i would like to do some special trip or experience with just the two of us before (and to celebrate) this important life change.
anyone else considering this? did anyone do it before their 1st? any ideas for amazing places in the mid-atlantic region?

We figured it would be a good time to visit family along the way and be alone.
Plus, I've never been to Salt Lake and since we will be moving ot Boston in May this may be only chance for awhile.

we are going to salt lake for just the weekend through tuesday and then off to los angeles (where dh is from) for 2 more weeks for the holidays. we were thinking we might stay for a night at the disneyland hotel and do a day at disneyland just us (i know i know I'll be careful).. i get into disneyland for free because I'm still employed by the walt disney company (worked in orlando for 2 yrs) so the only thing we will have to pay for is the hotel, which is still pretty pricy, even with the discount!
But I do hope to get a nice weekend in somewhere, maybe a Chicago museum weekend or something.
