Dreamy St. Thomas!

I'm so excited to finally share my FAVORITE stop that we had on our Princess Cruise!
St. Thomas... and it was a dream!!!

It's true. If you're thinking about a cruise or trip that includes St. Thomas along the way... you're definitely planning the right getaway :)

This little town is full of beauty, shopping and amazing beaches. EVERY corner you turn begs to be photographed. There's so much to see and do!

We're not huge into group excursions... but we decided for the fun of it, we would try one, and I have to say that we had way more fun than I thought we would. ha!

Yes, this is an Ice Bar. LOL.
If you've never been to one, it's pretty simple. EVERYTHING is made out of ice, and all of your drinks are frosty cold ;)
We don't drink alcohol, but our diet coke and water sure were SUPER chilly! haha!

Oh, and if you think you see stairs that lead to a small ice slide in the picture below... you would be correct.
You would ALSO be correct if you assumed that Cason and I were the ONLY adults who actually slid down that slide, laughing hysterically the whole time, because we knew how immature we looked to everyone else. #wheninrome

The ice bar tour only took about 40 minutes, so after that we were off on our own the rest of the day. 

One thing that's a bit difficult with port stops when on a cruise, are the massive amounts of people... especially when there are 4, 5 or 6 different ships all docking at once.

To be honest, our tactic was to jump on any bus, or catch a ride from a local taxi, and get as far away from the ports as possible.

So what?... we don't like lots of people... ha! It's just not my "thing" to feel like I'm being herded in a group from one place to another. So to avoid that, we tried to hit spots that had less tourists.

Megan's beach was amazing for this.


Captain SillyPants - Where Were You When MY Babies Were Little!?

This past week I helped worked on what could possibly be the BEST photo shoot ever. It was for a new premium baby swaddling blanket line called Captain SillyPants, and we had the CUTEST, itty-bitty models!!!
My adorable niece Halle...


That Cruise Life!

I couldn't talk again about our Princess Cruise without showing a couple of my favorite pictures of the actual boat itself. 
It was STUNNING you guys. I know people SAY that, but really, until you experience how pretty every detail is on a big, huge boat like that, you have no idea. 

My most favorite spot was the amazing view from the top of the ship, looking down to the common area. The design is so clean and beautiful. 

And yes, we enjoyed one too many relaxing (ehhm, lazy) days out on those chairs watching movies and soaking up the sunshine :)

Another spot on the boat that I thought was awesome, was the skywalk towards the outside of the ship. You can literally see all the way down to the bottom... which is mildly terrifying and sort of thrilling all at once. ha!

Feeling like you're out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by the most breathtaking blue water and beautiful sky, is SO cool. I couldn't stop taking pictures of it all. 

One morning I even woke up to this unbelievable double rainbow... and started screaming at Cason to grab my camera so I could snap a picture before it disappeared. ha!
