Princess Cays was Amaze!

Like promised, I'm back with more pics and info from our cruise. I love flipping through all the photos as I journal them. It was seriously so dreamy and now I'm glad I got a bit carried away in the photo department ;)

So Princess Cays was our first stop. It's the Princesses private island that has snorkeling, canoeing, swimming, etc.
It's 100% meant for relaxing and hanging out with whoever you're cruising with on your trip. They serve a delicious lunch, fresh cut fruit from the island all day, and have tons of places to relax and park your things so you can play on the beach. They even have adorable bungalows you can rent. 


Princess Crusin' with My Main Man

As a lot of you know from our Instagram posts last week, that we had the crazy-fun privilege of heading out on a last minute vacay with Princess Cruises to the Eastern Caribbean. A LOT of you have wanted details about our trip, from what the boat really looks like and how comfortable the rooms were, to the kinds of excursions we decided to take part in once we docked at each port. 

I totally get it! Trips can be stressful to plan and expensive, so you want to make sure that you're taking the RIGHT one and spending your money on something awesome. Well, hopefully sharing our experience will help you with that!
I may have gotten a bit too picture crazy, so I'll break the trip down into a handful of posts and promise only to touch on the most important things... 

PS: That there below is the face that Cason makes when I've both:
#1. Promised I won't be longwinded while trying to explain something awesome to someone, and #2. swear "I only packed what I needed" for a 7 day trip.

Okay, okay, so our trip started with a VERY long, complicated, bumpy flight to Florida from Salt Lake City Utah. 
I'm not sure if we were the ONLY state experiencing nice weather or what, but ALL of the planes on just about every airline were delayed from bad weather everywhere else.

We ended up spending a somewhat silly amount of time in the Denver airport, due to those delayed flights, and I'm pretty sure that half of the country was there right along with us.

I have to tell you that we stood in a customer service line, for what seemed like forever, and I had a lot of time to observe people. That was the moment that I took some time to snap this picture, and write my thoughts about angry, impatient, rude individuals. 
In the interest of trying to keep myself on track with fun trip details, I'll let you check out the full Instagram post here if you wish.

After about 13 hours of traveling (bleh) we finally made it to beautiful Fort Lauderdale Florida, with just enough time to eat a quick bite and hit the hay. Sunday mornings are when everyone starts boarding their ships! So yes, you'll definitely want to get in a day earlier than when you're actually setting sail for your cruise, just to make sure you leave yourself enough time.


Dear Winter... What Happened?

Isn't it funny how we always want what we can't have?

This winter in Utah (where I live anyway) we've had a total of 3 snow storms. Wait... probably more like 2 and a half, to be more accurate, ha!
This is totally insane for Utah. Usually we're getting piles and piles of snow, to the point that we're cursing winter and dreaming of sunny days and warmer weather.

I got looking through a few sledding pictures from when we hit the hills with our cute cousins a few months back, and started feeling sad that we haven't experienced more of that lovely, powdery, cold white stuff!

Who's buried in snow?... because we sure aren't!
