Cruise Recap Days One & Two

Hey y'all!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
I'm linking up with Sami over at Sami's Shenanigans for weekend update :)

Here goes the cruise recap:

Darren & I left for our cruise last Monday. We took the Carnival Triumph out of Galveston. [Mind you, this was our first cruise so I have nothing to compare it to.] In my opinion, this cruise ship was HUGE & beautiful. The only downfall was how shaky it was... I was literally dizzy/lightheaded the entire five days :/ I took the sea sick pills & wore the wristbands but neither worked. Other than that the trip was great!

We took this cruise with my dad, stepmom, sister, brother & stepbrother. Darren & I were on the seventh floor & my family was on the ninth floor. The first day we really just spent the whole time exploring the ship. My sister, Courtney, brother, Josh & stepbrother, Alex hung out with us most of the day/night & my dad & his wife, Andee did their own thing. We were all assigned to the same dinner table at 8:15 every night. Darren, Alex & I were the only ones to go the first night... & it was DELICIOUS!! 

We took a LOT of silly/crazy pictures! 

[darren took this shot of me while we were exploring.. I kinda like it :)]

[Alex doing a front flip.. & falling on his ass]

[Josh, Court & I]

[First drink: GONE!]

[darren & I in the Washington library.. with Abe! hah]

[Darren & Alex recreating the Titanic! haha]

[Courtney, Josh & I on the "tail" of the ship]

[this was after I had stepped on my sister's toe with my heel.. I took a picture & laughed, then said sorry! like a true sister! :)]

[then she got over it & loved me again!]

[Darren & I on the deck outside of our room]

[same.. it was FREEZING at nighttime!!]

[the photographer that took this picture was so funny & told us exactly which faces to make]

[the pirate at dinner!!]

The second day of the cruise was a day at sea. We woke up & went to breakfast right away. [soooo good, I had french toast & Darren had waffles]

After breakfast, we went to the casino & found this game that was stupid and took all of our money awesome & Darren got super addicted to it. You basically had to move a key left or right then up and fit into a narrow hole to win either cash or an ipad. He was convinced he could win [I must admit he got very, very close] but fifty-five dollars later we still didn't have cash or an ipad.. boo.

After the casino we walked throughout the ship to see what all there was to do. We found bingo & tried & lost.. again, no luck!

After that we went to the buffet & grabbed a snack. Or.. I grabbed a snack & Darren grabbed a full on meal. Haha. Then we took a looooong nap, SO nice! Honestly, one of my favorite things about this trip was that I could take a nap whenever I wanted to! Sad, I know.
When we finally woke up it was time for the formal dinner & this time everyone went. We took a "family" photo beforehand & a couples shot..

Dinner was, once again, delicious! I swear that every single meal was so good. That night I had st. louis style pork ribs with french fries & a baked potatoe. I seriously love every type of potatoe.. it's my favorite food in the world.
After dinner we were lame & went to bed because we were exhausted & we had to be up early in the morning for our excursion!

I'll be back tomorrow to tell you about day three in progreso.. my favorite day!!

Oh & as for a weekend recap, our weekend was spent unpacking, doing laundry, cleaning, etc. We took a break to go see a movie.. Flight. Really good movie! Sad, but good. I'd recommend it. & also yesterday we took Wrinkles back to the breeder we got him from just to visit & play. He got to see his mom & grandma & sister! He had a BLAST with all those other pugs & when we got back home he was POOPED!! Love this little guy :)

Have a great Monday loves!
