you make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise

Friday, September 6, 2013

Guys, I'm quitting my job. My new career path will be "professional vacationer." Seriously, I'm so good at it. Eating ungodly amounts of food. Getting my tan on. Napping like a fetus. Laughing with my husband. Hanging out with my best friend. It's been a pretty stellar week, and I am not at all ready to go back to real life. My work email and laundry piles are ghastly, but I'm ignoring them... obviously. Brace yourselves for a picture dump and a bare baby bump. (Hey, I rhyme.)
On the deck!
They put on some really fun shows every night.
Fancy pants formal night = a ton of pictures.
I thoroughly enjoyed not cooking for a week, however, I wasn't nearly as brave as Grahm in my dinner choices. Frog legs? No thank you.
Every night our steward would turn down our blankets, give us a chocolate mint, and fold our towels into some sort of creation. We loved coming back to our room every night to see what he did next!
Bow chicka bow wow! He's mine, ladies.
I think this was one of my favorite days. Sometimes there's nothing better than sitting on the beach, sipping some drinks, and talking with great friends.
"He touched the bump!"
Sporting our new and oh so fake Ray Bans.
Our $10 dresses we haggled for in Progreso!
"Babe, how hot do I look right now?"
The pregosaurus at 20 weeks.
Life in Cozumel. We could get used to this.
Holding up the Mayan calendar, ya know, cause it's so accurate and all.
Um, hi. Please don't eat me.
The ship from the port in Cozumel.
Our super fun wait staff. They danced and showed us magic tricks just about every night. (Apparently Grahm missed the "fun" memo for this picture.)
Our two-year anniversary night outside the dining room. 

Overall, we had a wonderful week. Cruises are the perfect getaway to do with friends. We got to be with Molly and Jude a lot, but we also got to do our own thing too! So grateful for our babymoon/anniversary trip/fun times with good friends. I think all of us needed it.

Cruises are my absolute favorite. My parents go every year and I try to tag along every other year at least. You look adorable as ever with that bumpity bump.

Ok, seriously? Stop it. I really can't get over the cuteness that is you pregnant.

Jay T said...

You didn't even give a HINT of what your baby is!! I'm so glad you were able to do this for your anniversary!! it looks like so much fun!! I'm terrified of cruises (because of Titanic) but everyone says they're great so maybe one day I'll give it a shot. Until then I'll just hang out and drool over your pictures.

Nicole said...

I love going on cruises! My husband and I got to go with another couple about 2 years ago and had a blast-just like you said, we could do our own thing, but could also pair up with them for fun couple stuff. I've been on 2 cruise lines-Carnival and Royal Caribbean...I prefer Carnival because it IS the fun ship! RC was too uppity and not as much fun as Carnival. Glad you had a great time!

Lauren said...

you look amazing! and I think cruises are the perfect vacation for doing with couples! it's great that you can hang together, but still do your own thing as well!

Breanne said...

aww looks like so much fun! i can't convince my husband to take a cruise as he would much rather spend his time just being on the beach the whole time. ;)
You have the cutest baby bump!
Also, I think I spy the port of Galveston? not the prettiest sight, but i sure do miss it!

Sam said...

Seriously, you, Grahm and Babybump are the cutest things I have ever seen! And the fact that you totally rock those bikinis during pregnancy makes me jealous b/c you look great!!

Kelsey Lenay said...

So fun! You, Grahm, and the little baby bump are the cutest! If you became a professional vacationer, I wouldn't blame you...just make sure to share all your fun on here! haha.

Xo, Kelsey

Sarah Smith said...

The baby bump is adorable!! So excited for ya'll! And it looks like ya'll had a great cruise!! We were sad when we moved from GA to Boston since flights cost more than cruises- BUT they have one that leaves from Boston to Bermuda we're checking out next summer! Good luck getting back into the swing of things!

No one has ever made a bump look cuter in a bathing suit. You are adorable and this looks like SO much fun!!!!!
