Life's Sweet Surprises!

If you've been reading the last two or three posts, you've caught the theme. Stress, stress, stress! Well, I woke up this morning, er, afternoon to a sweet surprise!! I got up and went to check Facebook as usual. One of my notifications was my friend Brooke writing this on my wall...

I honestly had no idea what she was talking about! So, I Facebook searched them, and lo and behold, I see this:
I commented on it, of course, and asked if it was me or another girl with the same name! The post was like 4 hours old at the time, so if there was another Nicole Hale, she was a slow poke at seeing it too! I contacted them and sure enough, I apparently won this 2 day vacation!! Haha! When we were looking into honeymoons last year, I guess I signed up for it and forgot all about it, and I guess I was still in their entrant pool! Whatever the case, I am STOKED!!! I looked around at their website, and it looks SO nice. It's located in Helen, GA. If you've never been there, you should go! It's a very unique, Dutch-modeled town. With the little Dutch buildings and trolls everywhere!

They're known for tubing on the Chatahoochee River, lots of little shops and great restaurants! I am SO excited. I've been through the town, but never visited at length.

Since I unknowingly signed up for this, or someone else signed me up or something, I was unaware of the contest rules. Luckily, hubby and I are both over 21, so we can still go! The catch is, as far as I'm aware, we have to use this in August. Our financial situation won't be very stable until I get my loan refund around the 20th. And, as the Marine Corps likes to mess up anything it can, Brandon has a special training to go to from August 18th to September 9th. :| I emailed the owner, explaining, so hopefully she is understanding and will let us extend our usage period to September!! If not, I guess I'll be planning a weekend with the girls sometime while he's gone to MRAPS. Meanwhile, I'll be shopping for a cabin to choose!! Here are some pictures from their website. If you're in Georgia, go check them out!

This is sooo pretty!!

They have nice kitchens, spacious living rooms!
