What a Way to Kick Off 2012!

Looking for the perfect way to ring in the New Year? We highly recommend a cruise with good friends.Which is why on Jan. 1 we drove to Long Beach California with our dear friends - Jeremy and Chelsea (yes - we share the same name)
and boarded the Carnival Splendor
There is far too much to say about the trip in one post, so I'll be blogging about our fabulous vacation over the next couple of days. But, to start off - these are just some general thoughts about some of the highlights of taking a cruise.

1- YOU WORRY ABOUT NOTHING - Seriously, the biggest decision you have to make on a cruise is what drink to order. And even then, if you can't decide you just order them all. Love this.Our fabulous wait staff - these 3 dudes served us dinner every night and teased and joked with us.2 - GETTING DRESSED UP - I love an excuse to dress up, and on a cruise you can dress up for dinner every night, but especially on formal dining nights (which is when they serve all you can eat prime rib and lobster tails!)
First Formal Dinner Night
The Beautiful People - Jeremy & Chelsea
Second Formal Night
3- SHOES - Since we left Little Miss I at home and I didn't have to lug a two-year-old around, I got to sport my high-high-high heels around the ship.
4- DARLING TOWEL ANIMALS - It is lots of fun to come back to the state room every night where the housekeeping staff has not only turned down the bed and left a mint on your pillow, but also created adorable towel animals to decorate your room.
Snuggling Penguins
Baboon Swinging From the Mirror

5- QUALITY TIME - My all time favorite though? The second-honeymoon-feeling I always get whenever Trev and I go on vacation. Love this darling, darling man.
Here we are goofing off before going to sleep

Oh my heavens - first of all I LOVE your hair! Second of all I'm totally jealous of you going on a cruise! It looks like so much fun and I can't wait to hear more about it and find out where you went! Jared and I want to go on an amazing vacation for our 10 year anniversary and so I totally want to hear all about it to get some ideas!
I bet it was so fun to get away - just the two of you for a while! Glad you're back safe and sound and can't wait to hear more!

Ok NO that does not mean you're more man-ish! I loved how on the analysis of the physical touch one the first thing it said was "not just in the bedroom".
