Vacation Recap

We're back from vacation and already back to the swing of things at work and home. We had a wonderful time celebrating our 3rd anniversary on a cruise to the Bahamas and Caribbean. We have joked so many times this week how we wished we could have stayed for at least another week ;)

We went to Tampa and Orlando on Friday and Saturday before or cruise left from Port Canaveral on Sunday.  We went on Freedom of the Seas by Royal Caribbean and had an amazing time! Here are some pictures from our trip!

We did a lot more than just these pictures make it look like, too.  We went ice skating and played mini gold on board, played many games of very competitive trivia, went on the Flowrider, played in the Casino, saw some fabulous shows, ate really good food, and had lots of cocktails and champagne!!

It was a fabulous trip and we had so much fun relaxing and enjoying each other's company.  We both really liked cruising, there's always something fun to do but, if you want, you can just sit by the pool every day. It's a great way to vacation!  I really recommend Royal Caribbean and Freedom was a great ship! Now, somebody book us a trip on Quantum ;)

Long time no see!

I know it's been forever since I posted last... Sorry, things have been busy. Well I just wanted to do a quick post that we have a legitimate reason to be away this week... We're on vacation!!

We're sailing away today on The Freedom of the Seas cruise ship by Royal Carribean to celebrate our 3rd anniversary. We're going to the Bahamas, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten. I can't believe we've been married 3 years now!

Yesterday we went to Universal's Islands of Adventure with my friend Sarah who lives in Tampa. It was a ton of fun! Today we made the drive to the port in our rental car and it only took about 15 minutes to board(!). Now we're just sitting by the pool sipping boat drinks and listening to the band.

I will do a big recap post or two after we get home. I hope you all have a fabulous week, I know we will ;)

P.S. I'm blogging from the app, so I hope this works!!
