Aruba, Jamaica, Oooh I Wanna Take Ya.....

ON A SEVEN DAY CARIBBEAN CRUISE! (Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeal!)

My bags have been packed since last weekend. I got my haircut on Wednesday, pedicure and manicure on Thursday, and my beach bag is all stocked with sunscreen and books. I've been rocking to tropical jams on the mp3 player all week and when sweeping the floors I even did a little extra shake, shake, shake, of my hips to get them all ready to sway to the nightly reggae and island bands. (Yes, I know there are hurricanes out there. Don't worry, I'm taking my floaties!)

Tonight we're taking pooch to the sitter (ohmygoodness--I just said that), having a late dinner, and then catching the red eye southbound. We'll be cruising in to any port with a good band, a beach cabana and fruity cocktail or local island brew. Blissful I tell you.

Oh, if you could, please come on over to the M Bed and Breakfast and do a little rain dance. I fear I'm going to return home to crispy, crunchy hydrangeas and that makes me a little sad.

....Key Largo, Montego, Baby why don't we go down to Kokomo. We'll get there fast and then we'll take it slow......

You're so crazy! Have SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!!! I can't wait to hear all about it....pictures, please? Oh, and I'd like to request one of you after you have had...say.....4 or 5 of those delish tropical fruity cocktails. Lemme tell ya....they surely know how to make those in Jamaica....I'm pretty sure I was only sober during my sleeping hours and breakfast when I was there (hey....the bars didn't open until 10 am....not my fault).....seriously though....Have an awesome time!

I would love to see some photos. There are about 30 of us going on a Carvinal cruise in February to San Juan, St. Thomas and St. Maartin. (still rooms available)
Can't wait. I have a count-down calendar on my myspace page :) Yes, the girls got me into that too.
