Some Pics from our Weekend

As many of you know we went on a weekend cruise last weekend for Nakizzle's 15th Birthday. (A side benefit of living in FL are the cheap cruise prices we can snag!) Nakizzle didn't want to have a traditional QuinceaƱera party and asked if she could do a cruise instead. While I would have love to have seen her have a traditional celebration, it's her birthday, so we let her have it her way.

Right before we set sail

I was feeling so sick this night, added about a pound of makeup, pasted a smile on my face and off I went. I had been looking forward to wearing my Robert Rodriguez Target/Neiman Marcus dress since before the sale even started at Target! I so love this dress, sick or not, nothing was going to keep me from wearing this dress or attending Nakizzle's Birthday dinner!

The Dolphin's at Atlantis

We did the dolphin encounter. I was feeling so sick that I just layed in a beach lounger sleeping under a towel. I felt so bad for everyone that I was sick, but I think everyone had a good time. You can see here no makeup vs. the pound of makeup in the picture above. At least the dolphin detracts from how I look! LOL
I woke up early the next morning so I took a walk to the LIDO deck and grabbed some hot tea and watched the sun come up
The sun starts to come up over the Bahamas while we head back to Florida
The sun is finally up as we make our way home
All in all sick or not, it was a nice time and flew by. Of course it would be my luck that I go on a cruise and get sick! LOL Darn sinuses! Fortunately it's just a head cold, but darn if this thing doesn't want to try to keep me down! (Although I am waiting to see if it is strep B since John was sick last week and found out on Monday it was Strep B all along!) I went to the office today and did my work and now I am just looking forward to bed again! I need to kick this in time for a friend's Birthday dinner tomorrow night! But of course my mind keeps working and I'm thinking Cult Cruise next year? Who's with me?
