Random Thoughts

I Simply Love my husband more and more everyday. I am grateful for all the little things in life. Even as little as when he texts me randomly through the day just to say he loves me. I am so blessed :) We are very excited for tomorrow and I'll share once I can take some pics. We are very very happy! (and no it's not a baby) We simply can't wait!! This month is going to be awesome and stressful at the same time but so excited for this new chapter. Yay! I am just so thankful for everything in my life. The good, bad, sad, happy.....everything. Without it all I would be who I am or be where I am. I have an amazing family and through the many ups and downs we all stick together and love each other more. I guess I just wanted to get out how I'm feeling right now. I'm a very happy girl :) Stay tuned...

Caribbean Cruise 2011

Some of you may know that Scott and I went on a cruise on October 15-22nd with his parents Wendy and Bill, and let me tell you...IT WAS AMAZING! We first flew out of Portland and into Orlando, Florida where we stayed the night before boarding the cruise ship the next day. Our first stop was Labadee, Haiti where the cruise ship owned a private section of land. There we swam in the Caribbean ocean for around 6 hours. The water was so warm and SALTY! Yeah don't ever get that stuff in your mouth. Haha but the Island was Gorgeous! We loved it. Also this is where we got SUPER burned because we are all super white and it was about 100 degrees out with a sun level of 10 and also sun screen didn't seem to help much, Haha so we were in some pain the whole trip but it was worth it.

Our next stop was Falmouth, Jamaica. It was gorgeous there! We mostly walked around the town and saw the sights, we even took a trolly at the end of the day that drove us around the city. We got to see how the people really live and how most of the city is very impoverished. It was an amazing experience to see how other people live. It definitely makes you grateful for what you have. We were able to visit on of the oldest churches on the island and go inside and walk around. It was beautiful. Jamaica was one of our favorite stops for sure. The people were so friendly and always nice. :)
After Jamaica our next stop was suppose to be the Grand Cayman Islands but since the weather was so bad and because it was the only port we went to that the boat couldn't dock next to the island we couldn't go. :( We were very sad but once we saw the 15 foot waves crashing against the boat we totally understood.

Our final destination was Cozumel, Mexico. It looked like a jungle. It was so cool! We didn't spend much time in Cozumel because we took a 45 min. ferry over to Playa Del Carmen and then a bus to Tulum where we saw the Mayan ruins of Tulum.One of my favorite experiences in life so far! I have always loved old ruins and always hoped I would see some someday. They were located on a cliff over the ocean. Let me tell you, you won't ever get a better view then that. It. Was. BREATHTAKING! I would definitely love to go back someday. Oh! and there were iguanas everywhere! We saw about 12 just walking around the ruins.

Oh and the ship itself was amazing! It was HUGE. Our room was an inner one with no windows. The bathroom was very tiny but it worked. I only got nauseous the first few days and only when I was going to bed. I only felt the movement of the ship when I was in our room, but I took some Dramamine and it took care of it all. We got to eat food whenever we wanted, watched movies in the theater, saw many shows/plays, swam in the pools and hot tub, had fancy diners, played in the casino, relaxed on the open decks, read, played games, and most of all we just really enjoyed ourselves. The staff was awesome! I haven't met nicer people in a long time. Every night we got back to our room and there was always a towel animal waiting for us on our bed. Our room was always clean. I would love to go back on a cruise. I get sad sometimes looking at all my pictures because I want to go back so bad! I definitely recommend it to anyone! Now here are some of my favorite pictures......

Blogging is really hard for me! I never have time and when I do have time I don't really want to sit in front of my computer anymore. Haha so I have 30 minutes before work and I'm going to try and play catch-up.

So November was a bit more exciting! But still really not interesting. I decided to really start selling my old camera while I was trying to save money for my new one. Who knew that it would take so long and would be such an annoying process filled with Scammers and really dumb people. HAHA! Oh how I don't really like Craigslist or Ebay. The highlight of November would be Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving! It's the first really Holiday of the year that my family all gets together. I love my siblings and I love when we are all together. We are so alike and yet so different, but we have so much fun. In November I did the most photo shoots I have ever done in one month. It was awesome! So for Thanksgiving We cooked 3! not just 1 or 2, but 3!! Turkeys at my mom's. My Mom and step dad made a Smoked Turkey and a traditional oven roasted Turkey. Scott and I then made a Fried turkey. Scott had always wanted to fry a turkey for Thanksgiving and this year we did. He was so excited and it was very cute. :) We had to go out and buy all the equipment to do so and it was a bit expensive, but very worth it! Those 3 turkeys were the BEST and I mean BEST turkeys I have ever had!!!! They were so delicious and juicy. YUMM! Oh and before we went to my moms to cook our turkey we went over to Scott's parents for a little while to say hello. Sadly this year we didn't get to eat with them because we had to go cook our turkey. I love his family! they are so wonderful and understanding and I always feel bad that we don't hangout with them as much as I would like. They really are amazing. I feel very fortunate to have such awesome in-laws. :) After our Feast of turkey we all just hung out and played games. I love family time! It seriously is my favorite. Put all my family in one room and I am happy happy lady. November was a great month even though Scott and I didn't really do anything but work. Here are some pictures of Thanksgiving day. Enjoy.

My step mom and my brother Mark Came!

Just my Gorgeous step mom.


Well I am going to break in down into months. haha October was not very eventful. Scott and I didn't carve pumpkins or hand out candy or even dress up, but we did go on our annual family trip to the pumpkin patch at Lone Pine and picked out pumpkins. (sorry didn't take any pictures)I always look forward to our family trips with my family. I love traditions! It was really really muddy that day and all our shoes were pretty disgusting by the end of it. So all in all we were pretty lame in October.
