YOU CAN DO IT!
Have a good day!

Hi Starrynite, I'm such a procrastinator...lol. I have some things pulled out and on my bedroom chair, that's as far as I've gotten. I'm glad we're leaving Sunday so I will spend Fri eve and Saturday packing.

Wow, thanks ladies!!

Yeah, I've been working my arse off to get things done in the office before I leave. You know how everything pops up right when it's time to go? I got a pedicure and eyebrows waxed on Wednesday and my hair cut yesterday so I'm set! Just have to get a couple more toiletries and it's done.

Both of my boys are invited to bday sleepovers tomorrow night so this will be my last night with them for a week! They are asking for a family night 'pizza party'...oh boy! I miss them everytime but when I come back 100% rejuvenated, I always know it's necessary to have this time alone. I recommend all mothers to do this (if possible). G and I are looking at a family cruise either later this year or next year and they are bugging me about it now...

I will try to get back on by Sunday but if not, love you all and 'see' you soon!

Thanks for the warm welcome ladies! Oh my goodness...we had a BLAST!!! I drunk and ate everything labeled food and alcohol..LOL!! It was truly amazing and very relaxing. We had 2 days at sea so I just repeated over and over the above statement and caught a couple of shows. They just added a multi-million dollar production show and boy was it great!! Very entertaining!

In Turks & Caicos we went snorkeling at two spots. The reef was nice but it still doesn't beat Bonaire's reefs...they have the best reefs I've snorkeled yet so I'm totally spoiled by them.

In Half Moon Cay, we just relaxed and soaked up as much sun as we could stand. It has HOT and intense at times so we couldn't stay out for long but the beach and sand was absolutely beautiful!! The water was a true aqua color and the sand was white and very fine...gorgeous!! This is Carnival's private island and they've made it like an oasis. I'd love to go back again. They had a BBQ with desserts and drinks...need I say more?

In Freeport, we took a land tour and shopped in a local hopping area called Port Lacaya. I only purchased a shot glass (I purchase one at every port of call as a souvenir) but it was nice looking around.

Last day was another sea day and I repeated everything I did the first two sea days.

Sooo the only bad news is that G left his camera (mine is broken and I've been using his but gave it back to him for an event)!!! I partly blame myself because I failed to remind him again. So I don't have pics. He just said to make it up he'll have to pay for another one so we can take pics!! Gotta love him. He put down a future cruise credit so we can decide within the next 2 years where we want to go again (outside of taking the boys on one for their bdays next year). We loved it so much we wouldn't mind doing this exact same itinerary again.

Well needless to say, my weight is UP and TOM is rearing it's ugly head so it's bloat on top of bloat, UGH! But at least it waited until after the cruise. I started the 17dd today so hopefully I can drop something. But with TOM, it will be hard the first few days.

Oh yeah, want to add that I gained 6.2lbs...I was expecting more but I did work out 3 days during the cruise...and I'm sure some of that is TOM. I may be going to a family function within the next couple weeks so I'd like to get back into my comfort zone of 161-163 before then....

OH WOW-sound like you all had a BLAST! I wish you had pictures to share. I would love to see the aqua blue water and white sand! .

Don't worry about the weight gain. It's only temporary. It will come right off after TOM.

Glad you had a good time.

Hi Shari, sounds like a great cruise. Half Moon Cay was always Holland America's private island. I think some of the other cruise lines joined up with Holland America. I love Half Moon. I was there in April. They always have a BBQ when we are there. I love sea days, too. Get to relax... eat...and drink.

Meek~I agree about the pics. I'm sad now that I don't have anything to share. . Have a good one!

Starryn~that's right, thanks for the clarification. I know Carnival owns Holland America now but it is still ran independently. They mentioned this in Q & A forum held on the ship.

UGH, TOM has me feeling so bloated and groggy. I don't sleep well sometimes when it comes and so heading into work now I'm feeling like BLAH. I need a stronger cup of coffee...
Weight is the same, no loss/gain which is a plus for now!
I will try to come back and visit other journals when I get there.

Shari your trip sounds fabulous!!! I am so jealous DH and I haven't had an adult vacation in years. I can't even imagine what it feels like to totally relax and just take a nap on the beach. Erin gives us a run for our money!!! We are in the terrible two's now I guess in about 10 years we can relax

Glad you had a great trip and also glad you're back!

Oh my...the terrible two's.... I definitely don't envy those days but it goes by quickly. If you can ever find a way in the near future to take a vacation with just you and hubby..go for it! It revives the relationship and for 7 days it's all about YOU getting pampered and taken care of. Missed you too!

Hey Lo, glad to see you too. Yeah, I have about 10lbs to lose to really get back to my low range so onward and downward we all go!!

I'm back into the 160's...barely, 169.4 down 1.4. Didn't exercise yesterday so gonna do a quick walk on the treadmill this morning, don't want to get too comfortable not staying with this, it was key to inch loss.
Browsed here while drinking coffee but gotta run. Busy day again but will try to come back on when I get to work.
