And then I peed my pants.

As you may or may not have noticed (most likely not) on the very bottom in the deep dark crevice of my blog's butt crack is a cruise ticker.

In January we are going to go on a Western Caribbean Carnival cruise. The cruise only has two "sea days" and an extra stop, which pretty much made my toes curl in happiness, because really, no matter the amount of chocolate melting cake or shrimp cocktail the best part of the cruise are the excursions. The cruise disembarks from Miami, which we have a day to play in and from there we go to the Grand Cayman Islands, Isla Rataan (my sister's words: is that where rattan furniture comes from?) Belize and then to Cozumel (And NO.)

Upon looking at the excursions on each stop I saw a smattering of the usual things: beach day, snorkeling, ATV rides, town tours. But then when I got to Cozumel and I saw something that really got me excited. NINE MONTHS IN ADVANCE. That's saying a lot.

Pretty Sensational don't you think? These are the Mayan Ruins of Tulum. Thrilling. They make my chest get all tight and my head all buzzy with happy thoughts.

Am. So. Excited.

Also another sensational bonus to this cruise is that along with some good friends and my personal sunny day otherwise known as Randy, my Sister is coming!! And if possible, I think she is just as excited as me.

Oh yes, and as a side note: I picked the last picture because if you can click on it you can see a number of large men in the tiniest of swim suits. This for some reason amuses me. Because that's how I roll.

I always felt post cards were just ways to make others feel bad. And I realize in a way... so was this. I apologize. You can always come you know... lol

Wow, that looks like a lot of vacation. I will just sit home cleaning messes and think of you clean and having your messes cleaned for you and not feel the least jealous. Honest I can do it. I won't.

Who am I kidding, I am already turning green. I have say I am impressed you got Lore to think she could leave Cameron for that long by then.

Been there, loved it!! Tulum was our favorite thing we saw--really awesome!

Sarah! What an honor! I thought I recognized Boyd from that picture.

(seriously, I couldn't go talking to you and not ribbing my ole buddy.)

I'm glad your reviews are good!! I can't wait!

I'm jealous too. But if I'm sitting in my new house while you're on your cruise, I won't feel quite as jealous. LOL.

Indeed Suzi! Good luck to you!
