It’s a well-known fact that I like to plan ahead. Schedules, lists, planners, notebooks…they are my happy place. I occasionally get an itch to be spontaneous, however, and being married to a man who doesn’t quite share my love of organized schedules helps me break the planned-out life now and again. ;)
Once upon a time, we were gifted some flight vouchers from Spirit airlines because one of our flights on the way back from Australia was delayed. The only stipulation was that we had to use the vouchers and book flights within a certain time frame. Instead of a vacation planned out meticulously for several months, we booked a short cruise for February in early January. Instead of packing a week prior to leaving, I was off my A-game and we packed the night before. And instead of going to lunch and playing mini golf like we’d planned for our last day in Florida before flying home, we spontaneously decided Disney World would be a better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Most of my plans were THROWN OUT THE WINDOW. And I kinda liked it.
Guys. Don’t let the world scare you away from marriage. It’s the best thing in the world.
I implore all of you wealthy people. Please purchase a Friendly’s franchise and put it in Oklahoma. I’d be there weekly.
Another restaurant I wish was here: Bahama Breeze.
I wish that I had ordered two grilled chicken meals.
We boarded the Carnival Sensation out of Port Canaveral and the
feast trip began!
We were a little hesitant, but we ended up letting Carnival choose our room because it was cheaper, and we actually had a pretty great ocean view room on the 6th deck! Bargain choice for the win.
Date night every night? I’ll take it.
This beef brisket was probably the best part of my weekend.
Andrew is passionate about chocolate lava cake.
Yes. You do see a box of goldfish in the background of this picture.
I married up.
Our only port was Nassau, and we lucked out with a sunny and 75-degree day.
I wish I could have met this person who clearly has their priorities straight.
We spent our day at Atlantis and soaked up every hour in this paradise!
Do you see those sharks? We went on a slide called the “Leap of Faith,” that plummets you right through them at an alarming speed. Safe to say, it wasn’t my favorite ride. ;)
Has anyone ever stayed here? We would love to go back someday!
God delivered us the most wonderful pizza before we left for the day. ;)
Andrew was feeling gutsy and tried roasted duck for the first time. He was pretty impressed.
I wish breakfast was this beautiful every day. ;)
If you’ve never been on a cruise, you should go just for the 24-hour ice cream.
Can someone please tell me what animal this is? I thought it looked like a penguin, but Andrew disagreed. Haha.
On our way back into Orlando, I told Andrew that we had a lot more time to kill than I realized. Within 10 minutes, we were parking at Disney World and looking up the wait times for the Buzz Lightyear ride. ;)
Why not? ;)
Confession. Log flumes scare me more than roller coasters.
Before we headed back to the airport, Andrew got the highest score you can possibly get on Buzz Lightyear. Haha.
Hope you all had the most perfect holiday weekend and are enjoying your week! :)
