    Just wanted to post some more pictures I took before meeting up with R & M.

    I guess she was in a posing mood that morning. I thought the ladder was really cool though.

    I thought it was neat how they arranged the food.

    We are staying AKV concierge!!!! Yeah!

    You only get gifts when staying concierge I assume. We've stayed at AKV (non concierge) 3 other times with no gifts.

    Perfect! I'm going to assume that also because I didn't get a gift in March when I stayed in a savannah view and I did get a gift when I stayed concierge the first time.

    Two days to go, I'm sure you're super excited!!!

    Thanks :) normally I would have been up and out to the parks, but this was an added bonus of having to wait for the group to be ready.

    Oh absolutely, no doubt about it. I think I would have sent R & M on their own if mom hadn't agreed to come. Definitely wonderful quality time with her :)

    I'm sorry for the lack of updates this week, work was really crazy. I promise at least one will be up tomorrow.

    I wanted to share some more exciting news. I was doing my obsessive checking of the DCL website and came across a short January cruise that was too good of a bargain not to book. So I'll be doing a 4 night on the Wonder January 24th. Hopefully you guys won't think I'm too crazy. I'm really excited about this and now have something else to plan :)

    That is great news. I understand exactly how you feel. This is how I felt when after nearly giving up on this, I got to book our November cruise.

    Thanks so much everybody :goodvibes

    On one hand I'm thinking I'm indulging myself a little over the top, but on the other I'm thinking what's the harm? :rotfl:

    This was not even on the radar, but I had really wanted to see all four ships eventually and this makes it happen much sooner. I'm really excited I decided to go for it. I waited a few days, asked my boss first about the time off and then booked it. It wasn't posted as a GTY room but that's what it is for now. Can't wait to get my room assignment. It will be a perfect weekend getaway. Now I need to read up on the Wonder :)

    As David and I always say.... "who is going to give you what you want, other than yourself" If you want to do it and can, then by all means go for it!

    Since we have no children together, we are spending all our money and not leaving anything for anyone else.

    So go for it, do what you want and enjoy life to its fullest.

    This is exactly how I've come to think. It's only been in the last few years that I've been able to treat myself and I'm still getting used to it.
