As I mentioned before, I just came back from a cruise. This was actually my first time cruising and I was pretty worried. For about 5 months leading up to our vacation, I tossed and turned at night wondering about what to expect.

To be really honest, I worried about things going wrong based on all the horror stories I heard and stories on the news… i.e. being stuck on the ship for days without running water or sinking. Yes, I know this sounds silly. Believe it or not, I don't know how to swim! So being worried doesn't sound silly to me.

My husband is still amused at the fact that I can't swim. Especially since he knows that I was basically raised on the beach. My siblings can swim like guppies or whatever you call awesome swimmers, but apparently I inherited my mother's swimming talents… sinking!

I enjoy the beach and water very much, but I still worried about cruising. I wasn't so much worried about being seasick because I've been boating and jet-skiing before. Which I absolutely love since I'm an adrenaline junky. I worried about how I would react to not seeing land for miles anywhere around me for days. Remember, I can't swim! So if anything goes super wrong… I'm up *bleep* creek (without a paddle).

Honestly, I quite enjoyed it. It was calming and majestic. At times, it felt like it was just the hubby and I drifting away from all our worries and work. Provided you got up pretty early in the morning to enjoy a little peace and quiet. Because in reality, there were about a gazillion (not really, it was more like 500) screaming kids running and jumping everywhere with their parents right behind yelling at them every 2 seconds... "Richard stop that!" "Richard put that down!" "Richard don't climb that!" "Richard get over here!" "Richard!" "Richard!"

It didn't matter how hard we tried, yet we couldn't escape "Richard!" Regardless of Richard and his family, we enjoyed ourselves. Would I cruise again? Nope!

As you can see from the pictures, the weather didn't want to cooperate with us. I mean really Mother Nature?! Didn't you get the memo... I'm on vacation! But the captain did a great job going around the storm so we could enjoy some sun and turquoise waters.

I Protest!

My husband and I just returned from a cruise to Key West and Cozumel. We've been home for about 3 days now and I'm not quite ready to let go of summer yet.

Even though we awoke to a chill in the air... I protest! Its still summer! Sometimes the gravity of how fast time passes by hits me all at once.

In protest of the impending season… I refuse to touch pumpkin until I put on a sweater. I was actually tempted today, but I refuse to cover my awesome tan (not trying to rub it in or anything, but it is an awesome tan).

And yes, I know. Laying out to tan is taboo and/or bad for you. And yes, I know about harmful ultraviolet rays, but remember moderate exposure to the sun contributes to the production of vitamin D by the body. And I did use sun protection.

In the next few posts, I'll be sharing a few pictures of our trip. :)
