Project 365 - Week Nine


Project Life Week Nine is a recap of our vacation so I will do a couple of pictures for each day. Let's just call this a make-up for my lack of pictures last week. I like to keep things even.


Sunday February 28th:
After church on Sunday we headed out to Houston to get ready to board our ship on Monday. Recently one of my besties got married and decided to move to Houston with her new husband which I thought was a horrible idea but nobody asked for my opinion. This however did give us a place to stay at on Sunday which worked out nicely. Me with our hostess Tambra:
Monday March 1st:
We woke up Monday morning and headed to Galveston. After standing in line for about 30 minutes I got a dreaded migraine. I get migraines that block of parts of my vision, so I was blind while standing in line and also for the first hour of the cruise. It was great. Sadly I am used to this and just continue on with life as usual. Me and Kelsey at dinner on Monday our first night on the cruise:
Tuesday March 2nd:
This was our first full day at the sea. It was rainy and cold so we spent in inside reading. I was al little bummed at first but then remembered this trip was all about relaxing so we took full advantage of it. Here is Luke and I from dinner that night:
Wednesday March 3rd:
Our first stop was in Progresso. We went straight to a beach and layed out all day. The weather was pretty warm and I spent a lot of time reading. What a peaceful and relaxing day!
I burned my legs pretty bad that day, this picture semi-shows how burned they were:Me with the cute hubs:
Thursday March 4th:
Our second stop was in Cozumel. I have been there a couple of other times but this time I did something I have never done before. We rented a jeep and drove it all around the island, stopping at the beach. It was so great and my favorite day!







At dinner that night:
Friday March 5th:
Our last full day on the ship was a sea day. We layed out for most of the morning and spent time finishing up our books. Can you tell we read a lot?? Then we got ready for our last dinner.




Saturday March 6th:

We woke up bright and early and discovered we were back in Texas. We were back on US soil for about .2 seconds before Luke picked up his cell phone and started doing work. Reality hit. On our way home we stopped to have lunch with Tambra and Brody and then drove 7 hours back home.

It was such a wonderful trip and I am so thankful that we had this opportunity and that we have such good friends that we can travel with, laugh with, and share life with. There was never a dull moment this past week and it is one that I will never forget!

Could you BE any more gorgeous in your red dinner dress? I think not!

Becca said...

Ok I'm totally jealous :-) all that reading and relaxing and sunshine?! :-) By the way, you looked beautiful every night in your pretty dresses!
Oh and for some reason, I always burn my knees/legs because I think they dont need sunscreen as much as my shoulders and face etc . . . You'd think I'd learn my lesson haha

It looks like you had a great time! We went on a cruise to Cozumel November 2008 and it was so much fun!

You look so cute in all your dresses, but girl, you are SMOKIN' in that red one!!! I'd wear it everyday :)

Trina said...

From now on I don't want to hear anymore of your complaints that you need to lose weight. I wish I had your tummy, girl! LOL You look great!

Also, the pic of you and Kelsey where she's got her knees bent to be even with you cracked me up. I grew up with a really tall BFF and I ALWAYS stood on my tip toes in pictures with her because I hated being so short.

Looks like ya'll had a great time. Can I go on the next trip? ;)

Emily said...
