Bring On New Zealand!!!!! :d

Kevin Rudd's (our Prime Minister here in Aus) 'cash splash' lol, more formally known as the economic security payments, are due soonish. We are planning to get a new mattress, and he is going to use some of it to get some studio time, and then we were going to see about the rest (we both get it and its $900 each). We were thinking about maybe dentistry lol, we both have a few cavities :S.

Well, anyway... Tonight I asked him for the most beautiful place in Aus in his opinion so I could tell WinterMountain in our convo regarding our desires to travel to each other's home country (I would kill several important people to set foot on American soil, god it would be fantastic) lol. And he said Hobart and the pine forests in Tasmania. And I said... OOOOH!! Your so right, that is beautiful. I'd love to go there. And then asked if he'd wnat to use the surplus money and go there at Christmas. And he said Hell Yes!! And that was very exciting, until he said New Zealand and I thought.... HELL YES!!

So we thought about it together and realized we could totally afford it with our extra money and some of his holiday bonus from work and some of my savings and his. So we are planning on going to New Zealand for Christmas this year, for two weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

I have never ever ever been out of this country before, and I am BEYOND excited!!! New Zealand, holy moly, that's just so cool!!!!!! I have always wanted to go there!! I can hardly believe we're thinking about it, let alone planning and being able to afford it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lol I am so freaking excited right now. And I can't tell anyone in my 'real life' because... his mum will crash our vacation if we tell her, mine will just be petty and buzz-kill about it because she wants to go to NZ but dad wont let her, the rest of the family will say why not save the money instead (yes, I know its not a bad idea... but they are also saying why dont you two just try being young occasionally, so they cant have it both ways), and one of my closest friends is having a very **** time  right now money and job wise and if I told her my good news I think it would make her cry.

So I am blurting it all out here and I am SO FREAKING OVER THE MOON!!!!!!!!!!!!! I could just explode from sheer happiness and joy and excitement and woo hoo!! I had this secret fear that I would die and never have left Australia... and now we're going to New Zealand and it means I'm not going to be stuck here like its the 50s, we're going to go places and see places and be free and happy forever. I know, thats a lot to get out of two weeks in New Zealand lol. But its how I feel. Free and happy. And so excited I could just die!!! :D
