    Yelena!! I remember her fondly. It was after we had her for our tequila/margarita tasting, where I was already feeling the effects! We went to play bingo, found a seat near the bar...and like a mirage, she came in, poured me a delicious, STRONG margarita and then disappeared! I never even got a bill for it! This is what happened....

    This is the last thing I remember until the next morning!

    Not the best picture of her, but we saw her again later in the week for our beer tasting!

    Hope you warm up soon! :goodvibes We usually get a taste of Spring, and then get Winter back just in time for Spring break. poor kiddos.:sad1:

    We loved Spokane when we were stationed there!!!Let me know if you get to Southern Oregon - it would be fun to meet up!
    When looking for a place to live, take a look at the taxes. Alot of people work in Portland and live in Vancouver, WA because there is no property tax up there and no sales tax in Oregon.

    I don't know what you do, but Intel is expanding, I heard.

    We are actually thinking of retiring somewhere out of Oregon. :goodvibes Hopefully somewhere warm, but this year that would be here!:rotfl:

    Then we would all live in San Diego or Hawaii! 82 sounds great to me! I keep telling DH that we need to retire to Celebration and work for Disney!

    Ellen, the rain looks like a nice way to relax and enjoy a quiet day on the ship! So fun when you find such a great CM. Of course you would be able to make friends with any of them!

    We napped almost through the ice sculpture demo on our last DCL cruise. I as planning to take it in, and I woke up on Deck 10 to a bunch of cheering - I went over to the rail and only caught about the last minute of it! I don't know how I slept through it!:rotfl2: And Jim didn't even wake up at all!:goodvibes:goodvibes

    We got the boys from Edge, we all changed (although why I felt the need to stuff myself like a sausage into my dress instead of keeping the other comfy one on I will NEVER know) and went to Parrot Cay for Semi-formal night and the Captain's Gala.

    Aren't they handsome?

    Tweeler made his best guess at Smoothie #1
    [​IMG]

    Timmy ordered Herb Sauteed Shrimp
    on spaghetti vegetables drizzled with garlic butter

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Tyler had Wild Forest Mushroom Soup
    swirled with white truffle oil

    [​IMG]

    And Pods & I had salads-
    Garden Fresh Salad
    served with tomato chips and balsamic dressing
    [​IMG]

    Californian Mixed Salad Leaves (although it looks like iceberg to me)
    served with crispy smoked duck strips and toasted pine nuts
    [​IMG]

    Tweeler contemplated Smoothie #2-

    [​IMG]

    And Timmy laughed at him-

    [​IMG]

    Because Tweeler got brain freeze-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    For his main course, Timmy had gone with oven roasted chicken-

    [​IMG]

    Pods chose Pan-Seared Venison Medallions
    with marinated red cabbage, potato croquettes, and a port wine and juniper reduction

    [​IMG]

    And he turned down the offer for a lobster tail on the side. How ridiculous is he? Tyler and I were having....LOBSTAH! Baked Lobster Tail
    served in the shell with lemon butter, green beans and oven-baked rice

    [​IMG]

    Tyler LOVED that Yadira removed it from the shell for him (and for me)-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They did offer to bring us more tails if we wanted them, but due to the earlier cheeseburger/steak sandwich/french fries/mac & cheese snack, I declined. I did, however, manage to find room for dessert in my sausage stuffed dress... we all had the same thing...and OMG, it was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good! Warm Chocolate Lava Cake
    with a double chocolate sauce

    [​IMG]

    Mikey came around with vanilla ice cream, which made this dessert the bomb-diggity!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Even Timmy skipped his usual Ummm Uhhhh...I'll have vanilla with sprinkles please-

    [​IMG]

    Then, of course, this was the night they wished me Happy Birthday with a cake-

    [​IMG]

    Which Yadira promptly took away and wrapped for us to take back to the room-

    [​IMG]

    Cont'd next post-

    While we were waiting for the cake, the boys asked to be excused to go back to you-know-where. Of course, they stopped at the cabin to change- either that, or when we got back to the cabin to drop off the cake, we entered a crime scene-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Aaahhhhh...boys.....we also changed (OMG- soooooooo happy to get out of that dress and put on a freakin mumu!!) and then went to the Walt Disney Theatre to see John Charles, who was doing an adult caberet-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He was very talented- he knew EVERY song. Ever written. EVERY song. EVER written. He just could not be stumped! Amazing!! When he finished, we decided to call it a night- didn't want to oversleep, because in the morning, we were headed to paradise....Castaway Cay!

    Thanks for the sunshine- it worked! It's 40 today- feels like a heatwave! :thumbsup2

    It was pretty amazing to see what someone could create out of a block of ice! And he did it so fast!

    Great update Ellen!

    One question though. Was your dining room table number 75 by chance? The one picture from Parrot Cay looks like the same table we have had on two different cruises we have been on. How funny if it is.

    My girls leave their clothes in the place they took them off too. :worship: My favorite is the summer when the get in from the pool. You can literally track where they have been by the garment trail. :confused3 But is good to know I am not the only one.

    Thanks! I LOVE that thing!! It has the cruise ship on it and Mickey dressed as a sailor- so cute!!

    :rotfl: Sorry! I've been reading restaurant reviews all day- I'm starving, too, if that helps!! :rotfl: But I'm having awesome Superbowl food soon, so I'm trying to hold out...UGH!!!!

    WOW, you are GOOD!! Yes, we were at Table 75! :thumbsup2

    You are most welcome- sounds like a baaaaaaad day in Austria, though!

    Kids are great!! :woohoo: They have many hidden talents, don't they? :rotfl:


    I have the TV on and Jerselicious is on- they are taking a cooking class at a cooking school (that I used to take classes at allllll the time) about a mile from my house. So funny! What's funny is I have NEVER seen anyone at that cooking school (Classic Thyme) who looked or sounded like ANY of them! Soooo funny!:rotfl2:

    Looks like your dinner was a hit!:thumbsup2 The best part is dessert. They should let you order that first:goodvibes

    I'm glad your temps are warming up a bit! We had one chilly day yesterday, and now back to nice again today - so unusual, but I'm loving it while it lasts!:cool1:
