June Vacation #1

Tonight I'm heading home to Seattle for a lovely four-day weekend with my family! My younger brother is graduating college; Sunday is the big day. Lucky duck is going to be backpacking through Europe for two months this summer, as he has not yet found a job in this still-dismal economy!

Since I'll be at home, I haven't figured out what to budget for this trip. My flight is right during dinner time, so I've pulled out some cash to cover a not-so-thrilling airport meal prior to departure. (Don't worry, Carrie, I won't be eating at McDonald's!) I know I'll be doing some shopping with my Mom... but mostly it will be a lot of family time and celebrating my brother's graduation! Plus, we are definitely going to be watching the World Cup. Yay! My Travel Fund is still happy with just under $750 in it. I'll just play it by ear and see what happens. :) Have a wonderful weekend!

Sounds like a fun getaway...who do you think will win the World Cup? I'm so excited for it!

@Forest - I've been watching the World Cup since Game 1...yes, at 6:30am! It would be cool if any of the African countries would win, like Ivory Coast or South Africa. But, gotta go with my roots and vote Germany! :)

I've watched almost all the games too...even recording them while at work and watching when I get home. Your pick is looking good so far! I picked Spain to win it for my pool, but I really hope England goes far.
