Gimme Gimme More More

Day 336.
I know, I know. I am so far behind. I meant to take a lot more pictures while we were in Vermont, but I forgot my camera and I drove. Excuses. 

We did visit Jon up in Vermont this weekend and it was great fun until Andrew got a little sick. He is feeling better, but these past two weeks have been busy (I'm learning a new process at work). I'll get some pictures up eventually. 

Also, this tea is Passion tea and it was DELICIOUS. If you love fruity tea, try this. It is yummy. Starbucks makes a passion fruit lemonade (or iced tea, I can't remember), but it is one of my favorite drinks there. Highly recommended.

Rather Waste Some Time With You

Day 334.
Andrew and I had a wonderful Valentine's day! We stayed in and cooked steak and corn (not featured), then watched some TV and went to bed early. It was nice to relax and be back home. 

Bouquet Of Clumsy Words, A Simple Melody

 Day 333.
Happy Valentine's Day!!
We had a Valentine's Day ice cream social at work today. We had ice cream with various toppings, such as gummy bears, and someone made these adorable cupcakes. It was a delicious, fattening day at work!

I Never Thought So Much Could Change

Day 332. 
I thought this picture had come out a lot better when I took it, therefore I did not take another one. 
Soooo... I am sorry for this blurry picture. I tried to add some more features to distract you. Did it work?

There's No Place Else You'd Rather Be

 Day 330.
Our last night we walked into our room and found this towel friend waiting for us! So sweet! We think the picture below inspired them. 
Andrew likes to say we got three main compliments on our vacation: 
1. A waitress in New Orleans called Andrew's card "cute" and wondered where to get one.
2. A couple from Salt Lake City sat with us before snorkeling and asked us if we were on our honeymoon because we still seem to be so in love (1 and a half years next week!). 
3. The TSA person commented that we packed really light and must've done this before. Nope! We're just lazy/cheap and hate checking bags, although we had to check one this time.

I Won't Be Held Responsible, She Fell In Love In The First Place

 Day 329.
This is the cruise ship port in Cozumel, Mexico. It is definitely tourist-y, but this was the best day of all vacation. We docked, snorkeled, swam in the ocean at a private beach, came back to shower, and then shopped a bit (gotta get a few postcards and souvenirs ya know!). It was a beautiful day weather wise too. The sun was shining, but it wasn't beating down too hard. 
The last three photos were taken with an underwater disposable camera. Next time we snorkel, which we plan to do, I want to either get many or just get a case for my point-and-shoot camera.

I Miss Everything About You

 Day 328.
A day of exploring and learning about the Mayan culture. Incredible that people made these with their bare hands and are still standing and relatively stable. Humans are an impressive species. 
 The elephant trunk represents water. They were praying to the Gods to bring them water. I can imagine as it was February and already 70/80 degrees. 
 The entrance of the previous structure. 

 My first(?) cactus growing in the ground. I mean, I have had cacti in a planter, but this thing was huge! And spiky. 
 We climbed to the top of another ruin with the steepest stairs I have seen (it was frightening), but we got a wonderful view. I hope you can understand just how tall this first ruin is. Notice where the trees stop growing...
Our towel buddy that night. :D

It's In The Mirrors Of The Hotel Lobby

 Day 327.
Every day Carnival had a new drink to try. This was our least favorite (of the three we had). Then below is a picture of the Grand Atrium, also informally known as the lobby. I felt pretty fancy walking around there!

See Me Sitting In The Palm Tree Waiting For Those Little Words From You

 Day 326.
Most of these photos are still from New Orleans. A rose, some palm trees (I love palm trees), leaving New Orleans around sunset and our first towel animal on the cruise!

Here In These Deep City Lights Girl Could Get Lost Tonight

*Extra Photo Day!*
The view from our hotel room! I love how you can see the palm trees and all the lights. 

Black And Yellow

Day 324.
Random pictures from around New Orleans.
This will be the last post for a while as we are turning off. Electronics and relaxing on our vacation. I will take plenty of pictures and upload them next week! 
Have a good week everyone!

Patience My Dear We Could Spend A Lifetime Waiting Here

Day 323.
I was teasing you guys for so long about what I was making and then, I forgot to take a picture! However, I am getting a picture and I shall post it then. 
For now, this is the bowl I made! It came out really well. They can go in the dishwasher too! Neat. 

Take My Breathe Away

Day 322. 
I got to spend the day with this beautiful little girl and her momma. She was beyond excited to get her new doll, which she named Cassella. We had lunch and she told me how much she would miss me while I was on vacation (mind you, we have been slacking and haven't seen each other for about a month and a half).

I Never Thought It Would Happen To Me

Day 321.
A little more sneak peek! Getting excited for the big reveal on Saturday?
