things i'm looking forward to on the carnival pride

With our next cruise just oh I don't know, over two hundred some odd days away, I think it was time for a list of things I'm looking forward to on our next adventure. It's never too early to start getting excited for these types of things.... and so what am I looking forward to?

That first frozen cocktail. Followed immediately by a piece of pizza, an order of fries, and a hefty helping of soft serve ice cream. 

The beautiful color of the water down there. 

Hearing the sound of the casino slot machines. It will forever and ever remind me of my grandma. 

The Captain's Cocktail Hour. 

The Previous Cruiser's Cocktail Hour. 

Their Caesar salad which is just perfection. 

Spending a week in its entirety with my family.Yay!

Sipping on a cup of coffee on the promenade deck while the kids clamber all over the couches, I'm sure. 

Matt would kill me if I didn't mention the Guy Fieri Burger Joint

Trying out what this ship has to offer in terms of child entertainment. 

Having at least one hour of uninterrupted sunbathing. With a margarita. Yeah I am setting my sites super low. Just an hour. Matt can that be arranged? I'll trade you an hour for an hour. 
Probably singing a million renditions of I'm on a Boat

Watching Rob molest my brothers. And father. And Matt. It actually is quite entertaining. 
All the food. All the time. All the days. With all the drinks. 

And yes. I cannot wait.

I'm linking up with Kerri, Emily, and Kate for Wanderlust Wednesdays... just spreading around the travel urge you know?

  2. this is awesome! i have never been on a cruise, going on my first one in 129 days (not that i'm counting down...) and this made me even more excited.

  3. Haha! That first frozen drink is the BEST! I've never been on a real cruise but your description makes it sound like I'd definitely like it!

  4. Oh these pictures! Take me with you! Please? I'll babysit for that hour, for Matt's too! ;) How exciting! I loved the cruise I went on with my family in high school, so much fun. We are attempting to plan a family trip to the Caribbean for 2017 and I will gave a similar list of wants for sure :)

  5. Sunshine! I'm craving the sun so bad right now. The water looks pretty good too, and eating all day sounds about where I'm at. Where do I sign up?!

  6. Cruises are so much fun! Where are you cruising to? My husband and I have been talking about when we want to go on our next one (last cruise was at the end of 2012 and we now have a 2.5 year old). Do you take your kids on cruises with you? Is it a bad idea to take a 3 year old?

  7. Eating and drinking....the best part of a cruise in my opinion! I'm anxious to hear how it goes with all those little ones!!! At least you're all in the "same boat" now. No pun intended! ;) lol

  8. A week long cruise...sign me up! They're the best type of relaxing vacation with all the food being prepared for you. The water looks marvelous too!

  9. So much fun! Super jealous of you upcoming cruise! Oh how I love cruising, already dreaming of my next one <3

  10. only 200 something days! practically around the corner!! but ahhh how heavenly. i think given all the snow, now is definitely the most appropriate time to be fantasizing about this foooor sure!!!

  11. Great pictures!! I think I have told you that I have never been on a cruise, irrational fear. I have opted out of three family cruises, and Chris has never mentioned it. You make it sound pretty fun though!

  12. Omg, yes to all of this! Scott is so looking forward to a Guy's Burger. I have sooooo many thoughts on this for you. We will chat. :-)


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
