We’re back from our cruise, sadly.  If you haven’t experienced cruising, you really really should.  If for no other reason, go for the food.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.  I should have pictures for you tomorrow (I took over 500 – many of the food 😉 ) so here’s some of the highlights.

  • Endless hours of playing RAGE with good friends
  • Peaceful time to lay around and read My Sister’s Keeper and A Wrinkle in Time
  • Wandering through adorable little gold rush town Ketchikan
  • Finding a Black Bear – convincing Tim not to get closer (it was about 20 feet from us)
  • Seeing whales puff water all around us
  • Eating till we were sick
  • Climbing around Mendenhall Glacier
  • Spotting dolphins and otters
  • Joking around with Roberto, the world’s most adorable waiter
  • Discovering my new favorite treat – Cucumber martini
  • Watching the Love Boat
  • Driving through the Yukon
  • Sleeping in a room that’s completely dark
  • Discovering the best coffee ever (can only be found in the Princess Cruises dining room)
  • Shopping for gifts
  • Being away from it all
  • Painting pottery with Amy
  • Laughing hysterically
  • “Dancing”
  • Seeing the most breathtaking sights imaginable
  • Being rocked to sleep

There will be much more info to share, and pictures.  I promise.



  1. Glad you’re back and had a lot of fun. I just got home on Saturday from my “vacation” in the hospital. Let’s plan a get together soon!

  2. Yay! Welcome back! Sounds very fun. Cruising can be wonderful if done right. Can’t wait to see pics!

  3. Glad you guys had a good time and can’t wait to see the pics!
