I am so sorry to hear about your family troubles, it's so hard to watch loved ones suffer almost as hard as doing the suffering yourself. I hope it all gets worked out very soon!

On a brighter note, your family looked so cute for formal night, so it was worth the work

Two weeks ago we were in Denver for my brothers wedding and my DH did not bring any black socks. He assumed the tux rental place would provide them, they did not. So I go into see if he is ready yet and there is DH sitting there in a tux with way too short pants legs and white athletic socks on!
He said what ? No one will notice...um, yes they will! So down the hall to my parents room I went, to see if my dad had an extra pair, which he did. But I had to hear a snarky lecture from my mom about if I had my life together and packed for my husband these things would not happen. thanks mom! Sock drama don't you just love it?

I would have gone with the free drinks too!

I am glad you guys liked the Aladdin show, we too saw it in STL and it was soooo good! Can't wait to hear about the rest of your evening.

Man I would be more mad about your comment than the white socks.

Although it's funny that your DH was ready to do a wedding (with full length pics in white socks and I just wanted my DH to wear white socks to save money!!)

Braids and Fish Eggs

First, thank you all for your well wishes regarding la famalia. The stroke pretty much has left devastating effects on my uncle. It should have killed him- all the doctors said so..but it didn't. And he is now still alive. But a vegetable. It has been agonizing watching my aunt go through all she has had to go through to be left with what? A man who doesn't remember her, his previous life, can't walk, can't talk, can't read.... sigh! So, so tough.

Anyways, This was not meant to start Debbie downer. After all I named this post "Braids and Fish Eggs". That alone has much promise, right?

So formal night was 'over'. I managed to pi$$ off my mother. And it was only 8pm. Things were looking good. We saw the show earlier so that left a whole evening of spending time with a pi$$ed of mother. Woo.

Miss Sarah wanted to go back to the club (jee, what a huge surprise) and so we took her. The other two wanted to swim. So off we went to a relatively calm, empty Lido deck....except where they ended up-

The girls jumped into the infinity hot tub with 900 other small children and 2 brave dads (said dad of these children retired to his room to watch TV or something).



I sat down to watch the Jumbotron at night....



Can you guess what's playing? Hint: It's a Disney movie. (Hahahahaha!)

It was not long before the lure of the hair braiding station began to sing its siren song to my eldest daughter. You see, EVERY cruise we take she eventually decides she wants her hair braided. And while it's happening she cries and sobs because let's face it.. it IS torture. And she swears never again.... and then.. again happens.

And so she found herself in the chair o' pain. And her hair starting to get braided....



It is hard to tell but those eyes are red. She is death gripping that towel and randomly shoving it in her mouth to stop the screams.. and little tiny tears indeed did fall................

But, just like ear piercing, in the end... all smiles. One happy girl (and one happy mom because people- her hair- CRAZY curly and this makes it SO MUCH EASIER to do for me!)



Braiding typically stays for several weeks and for $28 total, this is a good investment.

By now it was 9pm. Little Miss Char who previously wanted braids and then saw what braids involved, no longer wanted braids. So I took her down and put her to bed. And Rebecca and I went to get Sarah.

Only Sarah wanted to stay- so we granted her another hour...and my girl and I set off to explore the ship. And maybe, get some ice-cream.

Because it was formal night.. and the tail end of late seating... photo opportunities were everywhere- and so what better way to celebrate formal night than a picture with Mickey in his fancy 'attire' and us in our PJ's. I mean if it were up to me, this is how I would have spent ALL of formal night... so...



One for the frames.

We then went to the shops. Bought nothing. Went back up and got more ice-cream. (What? I told you we had like 900 million of those delicious swirly things!) And eventually I yanked Sarah out of the clubs by 10:30 to go to bed. Another day at sea.. Done!!! Next up: Sea Day 2.

Which, since I'm not at my picture limit- I shall start. Lucky you.

Got up at 7:30 and went out and sat on the balcony-



Ahh. A wonderful way to wake up.

We eventually got dressed and took the girlies up for breakfast at the buffet and then the two youngest got deposited at the club.. because we had a 10:45 brunch date here:



We checked in and were directed to wait in the nicely appointed bar called The Merdian. In just a few short hours, my favorite event of the cruise would take place in this same place............

We passed time by taking a few pictures.

El Hub



La madre



(on speaking terms and no longer pi$$ed at me- in case you were all wondering!)

Eventually we were taken to our table, right by the window. Sweet! Introduced to our server of which I apparently forgot to write down his name but noted here that he was from Florence, Italy. So we'll call him Tony. You know, after Tony Soprano. Because that was the first Italian male that came to my mind. Not because our server was mob gangsta.

Anyways, Tony got us our one drink included in the price. We all opted for Mimosas.......



Then Tony gave us a tour of the buffet and said "forgettaboutit"

Cute little pastries and stuff..



Disgusting horrible seafood. I didn't think I took a picture of this but apparently I did...



Apparently failed to get the main dishes but captured the most important table of all. The sweets.



Then we sat down and Tony told us he'd take our order for appetizers, main dishes & pizza. He also told us we were getting mozzarella balls whether we liked it or not. He was very, very pushy with those balls. And come to find out via another fellow cruisers report- her server was also very pushy with those balls. Clearly the balls contain something other than cheese. Perhaps narcotics to induce to book another cruise onboard. That's my theory at least. Bwahahaha, jokes on you Disney. We ate those d#mn balls and STILL didn't rebook on board.

I give you crack balls.



Said balls were not even that great. I mean they were ok. But not great.

I ordered a cold strawberry soup. (Yum. No picture). And Chicken Parm. Then headed off to the tables to load up. First up. Cute little pastries...



Aww, cute little muffin. I love you. Aww, look- I even went 'healthy' and got fruit.

Also. On this plate. Is............. ta da............... fish eggs.

I have never tried caviar. I decided TODAY IS THE DAY!! My mother laughed hard at me. And demanded I hand over my camera.

I am so, so brave. Just like Merida.

Me. And some fish eggs.



Clearly I am still very unsure.

Here I go. I'm doing it. I am.......



Wait. Pause. It's gross. I'm gonna throw up. Make the horribleness stop.



Down Kurt's Mimosa. Chaser. Over. Done. Do not repeat.

Now I have officially tried caviar. I will continue hold fast to my rule of the only seafood I eat comes from a place that has golden arches and fries those fake fish parts together in perfect togetherness with that tiny overprocessed cheese slice and tarter sauce on a soft, squishy bun. Oh Filet o' Fish, you will always be my one and only true fish love. I will even pretend that you are real fish and not fake. Which is probably the reason I love you so in the first place....

Oh, I'm sorry. That was a tangent.

OK. So cavier over. Time for food.

Mom got Salmon.



She said it was fantastic.

Kurt got lasagna.



He is a simple man with simple tastes. And his lasagna needs to come out of a red box labeled Stouffers. This was much, much too fancy for him. (see what I have to work with people?!?!)

I got the chicken parm. I do not have a picture. But it was very good. So there. Also, my cold strawberry soup was very good.

And then dessert. Glorious dessert.



Overall, I was quite satisfied with this meal & the fact that I had to pay extra for it. I think brunch surcharge was $25 a person. I feel I got that money worth out of it. I mean the crack balls alone...........

I would do it again. With someone other than my husband. So, when George Clooney and I cruise Disney together.. we'll go ahead and do this. That will happen in the near future called 'in my dreams'.

We left Palo and headed to get the children and off to the pool for a few hours..



And eat some more ice-cream.



Back down in the room.. the girlies played on the bunk beds...



And I took this picture. Never mind Sarah's weird face in it... I was trying to highlight the constellations above her...where the stars make characters from Peter Pan. I think this is such a VERY neat detail of these staterooms...



And that is my 25 photo limit. And I'm done! You shall wait for the next part.. entitled " You are SO embarrassing Mom" (statement issued from my daughter to me).

Ewww, caviar! I'm with you on that one...which I would have to be since I don't eat things with faces or that become faces anymore...but ew! Your priorities are totally on straight though because you included copious shots of desserts, ice cream, and even booze. I'm so proud. AND, I think you must have drank a lot on this cruise or you are totally a closet lush and holding out on me! Drinks for brunch!

The braiding looks painful, but SO cute! Savannah wouldn't let anyone touch her when she was younger, so we just had to muddle through that frizzy hair stuff until recently when she cut it shorter and it's really easypeasy to straight iron. and when I say it's easy, I know b/c I still have to do it...

What else? OH! That balcony! How did you ever drag yourself off of it? I might have just sat there the whole trip. I have a thing with balconies. Bring on the giraffes!

Yeah, not much for caviar myself. I will try almost anything once as long as it is (a) not raw and (b) does not still have eyes on it. I love lots of different foods, but have never been a big seafood fan. However, I do like shrimp in moderation, and one of my favorite foods is Scallops - IF, and this is a big IF, they are prepared right. Most places either overcook them a little or overcook them a lot. If you find a place that gets them right - oooh, it's like eating butter only better.

Were those cheese ball things the fried Bree? We had that for an appetizer at Triton's that was fried Bree and it was yummy! It didn't cause us to rebook either.

Ugh, and your balcony pictures still give me the heeby-jeebies.

I think I drank more than I thought I did on this cruise also. However, I drank a bottle of Sangria over the 4th (don't judge- I wasn't driving) and I felt the effects for an entire 24 hours after. Headache, lethargic. I need to work on my alcoholic skills before PHM. That's all I'm saying...........

I would never do the braiding. I have a crazy sensitive scalp. I cry just looking at her. But it's SO nice for me after she does it... especially since it's so freakin' frizzy right at that scalp and I am hair retarded so I have no idea what to do with it. I can't even figure out how to tame my own frizz & I have way less than hers. Poor girl, getting me as her mother..... flat iron is the only thing I've found that works... but impractical on a day to day basis.

I love balconies too. And no giraffes in the middle of the ocean. Just scary man eating sharks.

Oh, avoid China if you don't like food with eyeballs in it still. Much of their meat comes served um... 'whole'. Really hard to enjoy chicken with it's eyes and it's beak are still attached to the piece you are supposed to be eating. I won't even bring up the turtles... and fish... and insects... on a stick.

I don't know if they were bree. Maybe they were. He didn't really tell us WHAT they were except fried cheese and that we WERE getting them whether we wanted it or not.

Just add me to the list of people who have yet to try caviar. Yeah, I don't think so. I'm a big texture eater, so I don't think I could get those slimy little things down, but I am ever so proud of you for doing it!!

Your relationship with your Mom sounds a lot like mine. I can pi$$ her off easily and then it's all forgotten a day later. It's unbelievable! Before I even read your statement I was wondering if everything was better in the monring and sure enough, you answered for my inquiring mind!

All I could think of when I saw the balcony pic was "oh Nicole, the sharks are probably following you waiting for your mistake of falling into the ocean"!! Good thing you haven't......yet!

Keep the updates coming!!!!

Your caviar pictures are hilarious! I'm pretty sure that's the same face I made when I tried poi in Hawaii. At least you can say your tried it, right?

I like becca's hair all braided--so cute! I did that when we went to Jamaica. The braiding didn't bother me but after there would be one little hair pulling that I could never find that felt like a needle stabbing me! Oh, and I forgot to put sunscreen on my scalp and burned the cr@p outta my head....

I am a huge texture eater too- I almost threw up when I first tried Lobster. I ate it to say I tried.. and that's as far as I go! Ugg. YUCK.

The sharks were following me- they were...... I know it. Shark week is coming up on Discovery Channel . Need to block out my week to engage!

Eww. I tried Poi in Hawaii on my honeymoon. Yhea. Um. Yuck.

I am DESPERATLY hoping we can get to Hawaii for our 15th next year with the kids (I even bought a guide book on Friday and left it not so secretly laying out as a sign to DH that I'm not giving up this dream!)... and maybe I can trick my kids into eating it?!?! That would be fun for me to watch!

I made sure I sprayed the heck out of her hair everyday! And I won't even tell you how much sand was caught up in there after 3 days on beaches! It was gross taking it out!!

Hi Thanks for joining! How exciting that your first cruise ever is on the Fantasy!!! Our first Disney cruise was in October (2007) and out of all the months we've sailed (October, November, March, May, June, July)- October still remains my top favorite 'cruising' month (with November right on it's tails)!!

Where am I? Who am I?

Very soon after our morning indulgence of caviar. And all that cr#p.... it was time to head back up to the same area and into the bar Meridan that was at the forward of the ship.

It was time... for some good ole' fashion fun. Time to relieve college days..and nights.......

Time for MIXOLOGY!!!

I brought the mother with me since the husband is a beer drinker & not a mixed drink drinker- although in hindsight I think he would have loved this as well.........

We had this super dooper awesome person with a super dooper awesome accent. She likes to remain incognito so we will just call her Mickey Bar. This is because if you ever see her profile picture on FB she looks exactly like... a Mickey Bar.



Shh... there's a Mickey Bar hidden in this picture.

Anyways.... this awesome person arranged this awesome class for our FB group. It was so awesome, it had to be split into two different classes AND had a waiting list.

Now, Disney does offer this class to it's normal passengers but it has been told to me that those people do NOT receive the same experience as we did. They get smaller drinks AND the drinks are made for them..

All I'll say- for the $15 I paid for this- it was BY FAR my favorites onboard ship memory of the vacation. It was so, so, so much fun!!

Our 'bartender' was Daniel. He had the same accent as Mickey Bar. Which made me love him immediately because I Love all things from the homeland of Mickey Bars.... especially those accents!

Daniel



He is saying something like "this is some so & so tool and you should do so & so with it" I'd like to tell you what the said tool was and what I was supposed to do with it. But, um... let's just say my mind was focused on all the liquor and glasses...and so... yhea. Um... Actually my mind was probably still listening to his accent.

We were all given numbers. Mom got #1, I got number #2. That correlated into the 'drink' you would be making. Mom was up first.

Her mission, should she choose to accept it was: A Champagne Pomegranate Thingy. (that's it's official name too.. not just a made up one because much of the afternoon is blank when I try to recall it)

She took her place... and got ready to rumble!!



We learned the magic of 'pour' and the 'shake'. How to count. How to tap. Mom is an expert.....



When you see this picture, don't you want to bust into song? "Shake it on baby now, Shake it on baby.. twist and shout"

Finished product x 30.



(we all got to sample EACH drink and they were VERY GENEROUS POURS)

Next up #2! That's me! That's me!!

My mission should I choose to accept. Cosmos!

I can totally do this. I have seen ALL the episodes of $ex in the City! I'm a pro!!!

What did you say about pours? How may seconds? I forgot...



(shh.. my drink had too much vodka in it!)

Just like Carrie Bradshaw!



What did you say about shaking it right & making sure it's sealed?



$hit Daniel, I was too busy listening to your accent and not what you were saying in your accent. Please notice all the liquid down my arm. That is because, people, my cup was not sealed correctly.

And here lies the horrible truth of my college years- I did not bartend to get through them. No, I worked at the hardware store. Go ahead and ask me about plumbing. I got ya covered....

(perhaps the fact that I could not seal a cosmo drink properly would have thinking twice about asking me anything regarding plumbing.. now that I think about it!)

Well.. eventually my drink got done. I give you the Nicole special "The cosmo with too much Vodka and half of it spilled on my arms" (no, you can not lick my arms. I'm saving that for dinner so I don't have to buy a drink)



After that we had three more drinks. Where we watched others mix & we just drank.

Drink #3 was a Mojito. I generally don't like Mojitos to begin with & this one was SO strong. The person making mine clearly was too focused on Daniel's accent as well to learn about pours.

When I mean strong- I mean burned any nose hair I have OUT of my nose. It HURT to drink. That didn't STOP me from drinking it. I'm just saying IT HURT.

The mother & daughter who drink together, don't fight together....



Okay- confession- I had to have Daniel's assistant (name unknown- he did not have a cool accent and therefore the name was not committed to memory) put a bunch of sprite in mine just to get it down!

Drink #4- The Sidecar. This was straight up Whiskey and Bourbon and all those dark strong 'manly' drinks. Normally I probably wouldn't have liked it but.... I was pretty much buzzin' and it was all good!

Last but not least.. #5- the B-52 shot. AKA- my mother's new love affair. This was my favorite of all & it was hers as well. So much that she had about 100 more during the course of our cruise........ It was Kahlua and Baileys and something else.....and it was good. Very. Good.

Mom & her shot.

Cheers!





The aftermath of a whole lot of drinkin'



That dark one in the martini glass..that's the sidecar. Many people did not like that one.

Oh, in the midst of our fun.. I realized it was nearing 3pm. We had plans to meet Kurt and the girls at 3pm to see Wishes. We thought we would be done by now. We were on like drink #2...and I wasn't giving it up.. Wishes or not.

This required me to run from forward Deck 13 to aft Deck 3 to tell him. People, this is A BIG BOAT. Good thing I ran the Wine and Dine 1/2 in November... I needed it!!!

So, mom & I missed Wishes. Which I wanted to see. But I wanted alcohol more. Oh, the choices one makes!

To commemorate very awesome afternoon, we received these very awesome wine charms.. I LOVE mine and have used it often!



It was, overall, just an awesome afternoon. We walked away happy.. and drunk. Just how it should be.

Wishes was still playing so mom and I made a plan to wander down to meet them at the theater. Mom decided she needed to first check out what our dinner would be. And I decided I needed to take a picture of her trying to walk AND read on a swaying boat.



Then we made our way to the shop. Where I convinced my mom to not only hold up a shirt that had Chip and Dale on it (she eventually bought it) BUT also put on a lice-ridden hat. Notice it's on her head and not my kids. I would like to say even drunk I would not allow my children to put a hat on!

Also notice the awesome composition of the photographer. I totally missed half the shirt!



Yhea, she just looks drunk.

We met the crowd coming out.. and the girls wanted to wander the store. Charlie ended up picking out her shirt she wanted and Sarah used her money to buy a Vinyl.

Aww, a drunk Grandma with her cute Granddaughter.



Kurt wanted to play shuffleboard on Deck 4. It was right about here... I got what is known as 'the drunk hiccups'.

Um. Oops.

Waiting for a board to open up..



My three girls and Sarah's Vinyl.



It was right about this time, mid-hiccup..that Rebecca moved away from me and stated "OMG mom, you are embarrassing me so much"

What?!? You don't like to have a drunk, swaying, hiccupping mother on the family friendly Disney boat? Do you know how many of your friends wish I was their drunk mother?" (kidding, I did not utter those words). I actually just giggled. And then hiccupped. And our shuffleboard opened up.

Hiccup.





Ha. I can play shuffleboard when drunk!



Good to know. As those are incorporated into my retirement plans for when I move to Sun City Arizona and drink wine often.. and join the Monday afternoon shuffleboard club.

Silly little girl!



Her turn to play.



She decided it wasn't her bag of tea. So she joined her hiccupping mother back on the recliners and went back to her business of being adorably cute.



When we were done, we went back to our stateroom to get ready for dinner. Where my embarrassed daughter may or may not have told me to stand on my head to get rid of my hiccups. And I may or may not have attempted it.

Let's just say.. when we left for dinner- I didn't have hiccups.

Also, there is no photographic evidence of the above. Thank goodness for small miracles.

And that, my friends, is my drunken photo limit. Time to put a kid to bed...
