Well we are officially sailing the seas! We got on board the Carnival Miracle yesterday afternoon. With few minor Garmin issues, that dumb b*tch doesn't know anything, we finally made it to Ft. Lauderdal and found the Budget car return. I mangaged to drop all 42 pounds of suitcase on my foot....good times, and just to even things out, Adam dropped it on the other foot while we were getting off the shuttle. Awesome. So two maimed feet later we boarded our vessel.

The ship truly is a Miracle...even the gold fish crackers at the bar are smiling. I forgot how BIG the ships are, but less than 24 hours in and we're navagating around quite well. I already found the 10% off Swarovski crystal sale.... :) A David girl can always spot the jewlery. The sail away was cold and rainy, we waved to everyone from our balcony so as not to get too wet. The journey has started off VERY windy and bumpy with little to no sun. My hoodie has gotten way to much wear already and I'm hoping to retire it soon for a swimsuit instead. Pray for some better weather, we need all the help we can get!!

Our dinner table is supposed to be for 4, but our dinner mates did not join us last night, so we'll see if we have company tonight. The tables around us however provided enough entertainment to last a lifetime. "Brody Jenner" and his main squeeze are behind us, he drinks Coors Light and we're pretty sure drives a Dodge. To my right is an old man and woman, who we think may or may not know each other. One minute they're talking about a mutual friend, the next he's explaining to her what lettuce is and how radishes grow in the ground. Interesting. We spent the rest of the evening in the piano bar enjoying Mojito's, my new favorite drink, and singing along.

Off in search of sun!! Hopefully I find some before the Tanzanite sale at 2:00pm or we could be in trouble! Haha!
