I'm backkkkk!

Did y'all miss me?? 
We had a  great time on our cruise!

Day 1
We had 10 people in our group so we had t shirts made, Team Overboard!
Each couple had the name of a famous couple on the back. Oliver and I were Mickey and Mallory {anyone know what movie they are from??}


The boys started drinking at 11 am the day we left, I told Oliver if he got too drunk and fell off the boat I was not responsible! BTW that could totally happen, the sides are not very high.


My BFF couldn't make it so I did the next best thing.

Flat Amber.


She had a great time partying it up with us :)

I joined in on the dancing right away, lots of good music and I learned The Wobble {which they played a lot so I'm a pro at it now}


Can you tell I'm excited??

The next day was spent laying by the pool, eating, and drinking.


Someone stole my camera, I'm less upset about the camera than I was about the pictures that were on it!   I participated in the digital scavenger hunt and won, there were some good pictures on there :(

I did really well on my eating the first day and it kinda went down hill from there, BUT I tried to make up for it by taking the stairs instead of the elevator {my calves were KILLING me!} and I went to the gym every morning for a 3 mile run.
I have to say they do offer healthy options like fruit, yogurt, grilled chicken and veggies. 
I just really wanted bacon, burgers, and fries some days. 

Day 3 was in Progresso Mexico.


Lots of drinking.


Can't pass up a massage on the beach!


My favorite activity of the day was sand volleyball :)

That night we hit the casino a little. I've never played slots, but I can totally see how they would be addicting. I swear I lost 40 bucks in like 5 minute!


We also did some snorkeling in Cozumel, while it was pretty it was nothing compared to the beauty of Jamaica.



I also had a yummy drink, the glass was coated in chocolate.  Y'all know I had to lick that glass first :)



Ok, so one night was formal night and everyone dresses up and they try to take some cheesy pictures of you. The guy kept trying to pose us all dumb, I may have been drinking and refused to do what he wanted, I almost died when I saw Oliver's face the next day and had to buy this picture!


Trust us to dirty up a family picture.


This was our first cruise and overall we had a great time, but it was also our first time vacationing with friends and I think that makes a world of difference.  Oliver's not one to hang by the pool and dance so it's nice to have girlfriends along who will!
The food was ok, there were lots of fun activities going on through out the day which was different than just staying at a resort.
While food was included in the price of the cruise drinks were not {except tea and water} and let's just say Oliver spent a pretty penny on his drinking!

I'm also happy to report that I didn't gain a single pound! Guess those early mornings paid off!

I'm glad to be back I missed my baby girl, who I swear grew 10 ft while I was gone.


Facetime worked much better than Skype. 
She had a grand time staying with all her grandparents, spoiled rotten for a week!

  1. I'm totally jealous and now I'm making Jake look into cruises. :) He'll get up and dance with me, but it'd be nice to have someone there to hand the camera off to so we're both in the pics. You look fabulous, missy! Yellow looks HAWT on you!
