The Cruise: Before

Did you know that I am leaving for my cruise in less about 45 hours! I’m so so so excited I don’t think you understand.

My cruise leaves on Sunday at 4pm. My roommate, another friend and I are catching a plane at 6am that morning so that we’ll have plenty of time for delayed flights and unruly weather (which we are praying won’t be the case!). Either way, the plan is to be in Miami by 8:55am.

Over the past couple of days, when I haven’t been applying to jobs, I’ve been researching shore excursions for each of our ports. So far I’m think the first port will be for shopping and beach lounging, the second for ziplining, the third for snorkling, and the fourth for more lounging. Omg, it sounds so fabulous I don’t know if I can wait any longer!

Of course, there’s a little detail that I kind of forgot about… this blog. Thankfully, I have some amazing blog friends who volunteered to guest post at the last minute. Seriously, you guys (and girls) are amazing. I don’t know what I would do without you! So next week you’ll be able to reach some great posts from bloggers all over. I know you’ll love them as much as I do. πŸ™‚

You know that slump I was talking about yesterday? Well, I’m feeling much better today. I’m slowly coming out of this funk. I walked the streets of New York last night while it was misting. I talked with a friend for a few hours. Plus, my aunt is amazing and mailed me an apple gift card so I can buy my iPhone. If that doesn’t put me in a better mood I don’t know what will. I also went shopping yesterday evening and bought two new shirts, a dress, and a pair of earrings from Forever 21 and the grand total on the bill was less that $25.00. That store is amazing, seriously.

I need to stop shopping though. I’m pretty sure I’ve bought more than seven new outfits (one for each day of the cruise) in the past few weeks. Now I need to buckle down an start taking care of business. I need to go pick up my diploma from campus. I need to get a pedicure because you know I need cute toes while I’m on that ship! I need to make my packing list. I need to finish fake tanning my legs. I need to keep tracking my iPhone gift card so that I can hopefully buy my new phone tomorrow! And I need to burn off a few extra calories so I can eat that molten chocolate cake I keep reading about the cruise review websites.

So that’s that. Lots to do before I leave on my vacation in less than 2 days. Must get busy! Hope everyone has a great weekend. I’ll talk to you all when I get back from my cruise!
