..more cruise pics..

Just because I like 'em :)

This is the ship from the end of the pier in Progreso, Mexico. The pier was 4 miles long, so you had to take a bus to town.

The Lido deck at night..

Flamingos having some lunch in Progreso :)

The salt flats in Progreso, brought to you by your tour guide Pablo!

The Maya ruins in Progreso

And me & the Hubs being all close and married-like :)

..our 3rd winner is..

Julie from It's Sew Stinkin' Cute! I did a random draw, and her post with her in her Raggedy Ann costume won. Congrats Julie! I'll be sending your mailing info along.

And because I hate having a post without pics, I'll share some of the ones from my trip. This is by no means anywhere near even half of them :) But I don't want you all to feel like you're trapped at a family reunion, looking at slides :D **Not really sure why the quality looks awful in the small pic, but if you click on them, it brings them to a bigger size with much better quality**

View of the Lido deck, looking towards the back of the ship. There's the Carnival tail! :)

Me and Hubbo at the back of the boat.

Silly faces!

And I'm gonna assume the room stewards knew I would be posting pics, and I know they all read my blog. So what did they leave me? A Koala Towel Buddy!!! Isn't he cute?

..cruisin' and a giveaway!..

We leave bright and early in the morning for New Orleans. We'll be spending the night there tomorrow night, and our cruise leaves Saturday afternoon. I am so excited! :) I'll be gone for a week, and although they tell me there is internet to be found on board, I don't know how great it will be. So to keep you all busy while I'm gone, how about another giveaway for the 13 Days of Halloween swappers? :)

**You have to be a participant in the Halloween Swap to win this giveaway**

The prize is being donated by one of your fellow swappers, AwtemNymf! She has very generously offered to donate a set of Spooktacular Charm Squares!

Don't you just love this line?! :D This bundle includes 40- 5" charm squares.

*How to enter*

Go visit AwtemNymf's blog, and leave her some blog love. Then some back here and leave a comment letting me know.

For a second entry, follow her blog, then leave a separate comment for that.

For a third entry, leave a link to a picture of a Raggedy Ann or a Raggedy Andy that you have or have made. Miss Nymfie loves the Raggedies! :)

You have until Friday, September 25 to enter. I will draw a winner either Saturday or Sunday, depending on how late we get home :)

Huge thanks to Miss Nymfie for donating this prize. I only wish I was eligible to win, lol :) You all have a wonderful week while I am gone. If I have internet, I will post pictures from the cruise.

Peace, waves and koala fuzz y'all! :)

Today is very special to me. The hubbo and I started dating on 09.09.99, and then we got married on 09.09.06. Which means that today is technically our 3rd and our 10th anniversary :) This will be the only time in our life when we will get to celebrate with all 9's. Unless science makes some HUGE progress, I don't see either of us being around on 09.09.99 again :D So today is a big deal, but no big plans. I'm letting him sleep late, and I'll be working on cakes for the bridal fair this weekend. But next week is a different story. Next week we leave for a week long cruise :D That's our celebration, and I can't wait! It will be the first time either of us have ever gone on one. We're setting out to Cozumel and Progreso. And I'm even more thrilled, because one of the days we're at port, we're going swimming with dolphins. It's been on my "Bucket List" since I was a little girl.

So Happy Anniversary babe. I hope it's been worth it for you, because it's been a blast for me! :D




See, some things do get better with time :)

**UPDATE** I just answered the door to a delivery.. a flower delivery for me! :) He sent me three roses (one for every year) in red, pink and white. He gets the award for hubbo of the year in my book :D
