I'm back, and my vacation was fabulous.

From cruise christmas

We had such a wonderful Christmas break - seeing friends and family, being goofy, eating delicious food, and going on an awesome cruise together (my first cruise ever!).

The themes of the cruise were, in no order:
- general geekiness (provided by everyone)
- double chins (provided by me and Bob)
- bellies in bathing suits (provided, again, by me and Bob)
- towel animals (provided by our room steward, Arman)
- filet mignon every single day

I also had great fun hanging out in JUST A BATHING SUIT. IN PUBLIC. It was revolutionary. Also, I found a sun hat that, due to some manufacturing margin of error, fit me when none of the other (identical) hats on the rack fit. So that was a huge win as well!

I'm looking forward to catching up on everyone's blogs and hope you all had a fantastic break as well, if you got a break!

Welcome back Rebecca! It sounds like a liberating trip to let tummies and double chins hang out in public! Happy New Year by the way. :D

Rebecca said...

Thanks so much Merry! Happy new year to you too!

Happy New Year! Looks like you had a brilliant holiday! I'm every envious of the sunshine! I'm ready for some warm sunshine now - we have 13oC temps today but its wet & windy instead of sunny.

Good on you on the swimsuit front - did you get the ASOS one in the end?? I also like the elephant towel!

Welcome back! Glad you had a good time :)

Rebecca said...

Thanks Monkey! It's terrible weather here in Seattle too, cold and rainy, we even had snow the other day. Just Seattle's way of saying "F U, Rebecca, you aren't on vacation anymore". I did end up getting the Asos swimsuit, and it worked out really well. Plus, I had an old target tankini that I wore as well. I don't have any pics of me in just the bathing suit, I typically wore a shirt over to keep the sun off.

Thanks Allison!

Welcome back.
It's nice to see you in shorts. Don't mean to be a creepa but you usually don't bare your legs! Hmm. Haha. I love cruises. I went to my first one 2 years ago (wtf time flies. crazy.) and I LALALOVED the fact I could eat whatever I wanted.

Rebecca said...

Thanks Thomessa! I checked out your blog, I like it! Thanks for commenting!

Gazel - you're not a creepa at all, thanks for the compliment! I loved the food too :). And the drinks! They weren't free but they were tasty.

Glad you're back safe and had a good time! I accidentally deleted the comment you left me (derrr), but I wanted to thank you and definitely take you up on your offer about rec'ing free prep resources -- I'm kind of drowning in free prep sites that suck. heavyaura [at] gmail
