Getting excited about our CRUISE!
2 weeks from now, my family--sisters, nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law, parents, hubby, kids, and I--will ALL be cruising the Western Caribbean! We will depart New Orleans on June 14, my parents' 50th anniversary. That is the entire reason that we are going on this once in a lifetime trip! We started talking about it several years ago and actually started planning it over a year ago. I can't believe after talking about it so long that it is almost here!
Isaac is really getting excited, and it thrills me to listen him talk to what he wants to do. We haven't been to a beach since he was 2 and I was pregnant with Adam, so he's very excited about hitting the sand! Adam is excited when Isaac talks about it but doesn't really talk about it unprompted.
We will be visiting Cozumel and Progreso, Yucatan. Originally we were supposed to go to Costa Maya, but it was hit by a hurricane back in the fall so Carnival changed the plans.
We went shopping for a dress for me yesterday and ended up buying quite a bit more, but isn't that often how it happens?! We got my dress at Dress Barn, and I've got a funny story about that! Chris told Isaac we were going to Dress Barn, and a few minutes later Isaac asked me, "Why do they call it Dress Farm?!" Then when we got inside the store, he said,"This sure doesn't look like a barn!" Chris deemed the dress I got as looking the best on me, and he even picked out a pair of shoes to go with it, as well as a excellently priced and flattering bathing suit! My hubby rocks!!
This is costing a pretty penny, but I really want to quit stressing about that and enjoy it...it is truly something that I never expected to experience, and am thrilled to get to do so with my favorite people!
