Cruisin' to Paradise

My oh my the summer is flying by and I thought I would be great and blog all the time during the summer, but that just has not been the case. I guess I blogged to take a break from the much needed school To Do's, but this summer it has been great to stay off the computer and read. Oh how I love to read, if I could find the time to read through out the school year I believe Adam would wonder where his wife went..haha!
At our Muster Station
Adam and I went on a cruise to the Bahama's to celebrate Adam's big brother, DW and Annie's cousin, Amy's 30th. Getting away from work (well for Adam anyway) and being able to spend 24/7 with each other for 4 whole days was amazing. There is nothing like waking up and not having to make your bed, worry about dishes, laundry, or making dinner for that matter. I LOVE A CRUISE! Our room had a balcony and I will always want one from now on. It was wonderful and relaxing to sit out there in the sun and read with the breeze. Oh and yes I started New Moon on the cruise and have since completed it. I never thought I would read the Saga, but here I am trying to wait to read the third one so that I can read a teacher book or two prior to school starting back. Back to the cruise... Dressing up for dinner every night is so much fun it brings me back to when Adam and I started dating. Doing your hair just so and picking out the perfect dress for the restaurant you are going to. It's like date night every night!

Casual Night

Adam, Me, Amy, and Gabe

We got the the Bahama's at 12 the next afternoon and we ALL were pumped about Blackbeard's Island for relaxing fun in the sun. It just didn't work out that way...Adam, Gabe, Amy, and me got separated from our group after they sent us through this crazy maze of a building. We got on the boat, and the rest of our group got left behind. After making a fuss with the captain, he still refused to return to the Pier to get our group. The low point of the trip but the four of us tried to make the most of Blackbeard's Island. It was fun to get to know Amy and Gabe better, and I completely understand why Amy means so much to Annie. Now those who know me, I am seriously scared of water creatures. Since the water was crystal clear and I could see all the way to the ground I was able to get in and stay in the water WITHOUT Adam. Amy and I were swimming when we realized everyone was out of the water pointing at the water behind us. Amy and I looked at each other and our eyes about popped out thinking when we turn around the shark fin will be right behind us. We didn't even bother to look at what it was we literally walked or you could say ran on the water. When we got out we realized it was just a lil' sting ray, but we didn't venture back to the water without the guys after that. We missed our crew on the island, but had a blast the rest of the cruise dancing and, checking out karaoke all together.
