I'm looking forward to your next installment!!
Yes- that's exactly how it is...like a train wreck!!

Yea, that day was definitely more fun than this one! I'm still cleaning up from yesterday's feast- it's a lot of dishes!!

I never get to go shopping on Black Friday, DH always has to work for one thing and frankly I'm usually exhausted from the days before. I LOVE to cook, but after a big one like Thanksgiving, I usually need some down time.

Hope everyone's Thanksgiving was happy! I'll be back with my next installment soon-

Ellen

Trojan Worm Popping Up On Photobucket

Hi- Just wanted to warn you, there is a pop-up on Photobucket that I have gotten twice and thankfully knew not to trust and download. It looks like a very urgent message from Windows, telling you that a malicious virus has been detected and you need to download some update to your system right now to prevent the worm from harming your hard drive. If you look carefully, the things you would be downloading are the viruses themselves- Trojan Horse. It REALLY looks like it's authentic, it looks like windows, but it's not. My friend, Cammie, downloaded this and now her computer is a disaster!! Just be careful not to click on anything, it looks very urgent, but it's sooo bad!!

DH got a great deal at Barnes & Noble on Black Friday

He got 40% off of a book for my mom in large print. Even with the discount it was still almost $20.00 ... My Mom would freak out if she new how much books cost now.

Ex-AAAAAAHHHH-tic Rasul and I LOVE this rainforest!!

AT 11:00 DH & I had our first spa appointment, an Exotic Rasul. The rep brings you back to the rooms, explains the order to put the products on, and leaves and locks the door. Everyone knows this room is about a LOT more than just detoxifying and slimming down with Algae products. What I find MOST fascinating about the Exotic Rasul treatment is that Disney says it is for UP TO 3 GUESTS!!!! Hmmm...that's pretty sexy for the mouse, don't cha think? Well, boring us, we went in alone with just us 2, that was exciting enough!! Anyway, here are some pics of the rooms before we got them all muddied up- Here are the goopie things to smear on-



Here are their premium products you can use to your heart's content once you have finished with the others-



Though this door is the steam room-



In the steam room we used the hose with the cool water to make the seats bearable- but the steam felt good!



That's a great treatment, I would sign up for it again in a heartbeat!!

We thought we'd stop in for a bit at the rainforest room after we partook of the icy cold cucumber water. The rainforest room is GORGEOUS, and incredibly relaxing-







Really, it is completely relaxing in there, and I was amazed at how beautiful it was- it is incredible it is on a ship. We laid on the heated tile lounges for a little bit, then headed out. I actually went up and got into my workout clothes and spent some time in that awesome and motivating fitness center (I didn't get to do all the weights I had wanted to the day before, so I wanted to finish it all up. Plus do some work on my belly- tonight was formal night, and I needed to get into that gown!!) DH went up on Deck 9 and laid around reading his book while watching DS9 play in the pool-







After I worked out, I showered in one of the incredible showers up there in the locker room- wow. It's great in there, too.

Anyway, I made DS9 hop out of the pool because look who was coming by the Goofy pool to say hi-



Then he was back to his pals in the pool-



It was now DS11's turn to play Dodge ball and basketball on the sports deck-





As usual, he was having the time of his life with everyone in the club. DH and I grabbed paninis and salads for lunch, and we did a little more of this-



Dh had no plan to do anything but exactly this for the rest of the afternoon, especially when DS9 hopped out of one pool and into another to watch "Finding Nemo" on the Dumbotron. Well, we were supposed to be going to High Tea at Palo- soooo, I went on a hunt to find a more willing participant- luckily, I ran into Sherry from the plane! She did a little manuevering, and at 3:00 we met at Palo for tea. First we chose our teas, ( I had the Chai, it was lovely) and they were poured and our sandwiches brought.



The sandwiches were very tasty, I especially liked the foccacia veggie one. Then we had the desserts-



And they served us the best of it all, the lemon tiramisu, which i am sad to say I forgot to take a picture of. I scarfed it down in too much of a hurry, it was THAT GOOD. Sherry was great company, and it kills me that I don't have a photo of our tea together!! That would be due to the fact that after I had inhaled the tiramisu, it was after 4:00- I was supposed to meet DH at 4 in Sessions for the Martini tasting!!! Sherry insisted on paying the bill, she said she was so glad she got to experience Palo. How nice!!

Martinis and more in the next post!

MMMMMMM, you gotta love the Palo High Tea. I was soooo sad I didn't get to do it this trip. But DH just wouldn't bite, and I wasn't going by myself! Glad you enjoyed it!

Happy Belated Birthday, Ellen! I'm loving your TR! We loved the exotic Rasul, too - can you use the RF room as part of that treatment, or did you have a RF pass?

Thanks! We had a RF pass as part of the REAS- but I think you can use it if you've had a spa treatment that day.

When DH found out he didn't have to go, he was sooooooooooooooooo happy!! Not sitting and having tea was like winning the lottery for him!

Thanks for all the Birthday wishes, everyone! You've made me feel very special!!
