As a college graduate, married to a college graduate, and parent to three children who went to college, I know all too well the great expense of earning a higher education. Even with scholarships, grants, and loans, there are still more out-of-pocket costs, both planned and unplanned. My husband and I are still trying to pay off our own student loans! The Upromise MasterCard® is perfect for the parents of future and current college students looking to boost college savings or pay down an existing student loan. It means more cash back to help students and parents reach their savings goals.Majoring in Money: HowAmerican College Students Manage Their Finances” 68 percent of college students said their parents influenced their decision on which great card to get first.

Our flight leaves very early on Monday morning, with a plane change in Los Angeles, before landing in Honolulu. We'll be staying at hotels in the Waikiki area, so we'll be very close to the beach. I've packed three swimsuits and two pair of flip-flops -- beach time is always on my list! We also want to do the Pearl Harbor Tour. I want to try snorkeling and Johnny is looking forward to the waterfalls. I hope to see dolphins, whales, and sea turtles. Oh, and I can't wait to see those beautiful Hawaiian sunsets!
I guess, in a way, this is our honeymoon trip. When we got married in 2001, we already had three kids, ages 9 and 4, so we only spent one night in a hotel in downtown Austin. I am beyond excited to visit Hawaii again, and am so happy I get to share it with my husband. He's never been to Hawaii and it's been a long time since I've been there, so this is going to be such an adventure!
If you would like to follow along on my trip, I'll be posting on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as sharing through blog posts. You can make sure you are following my accounts by clicking on my social media buttons on the left-hand side of my blog.
