You may remember this post over 1.5 years ago when I announced that we were going on a cruise to Mexico to celebrate my graduation in May 2009. Well…because of the lovely swine flu outbreak originating in Mexico in the Spring of 2009, our cruise was redirected to San Francisco. We really didn’t want to go to San Fran when we had been there before and were looking forward to going to Mexico.

Anyway, we opted to get a cruise credit and we had until the end of 2010 to use it. At the time it seemed like forever away, but now that is almost here! Craziness. Soooo we are finally going to go on our cruise December 12-19! We are so excited and we really just have to pay to get to Long Beach and for cruise excursions, etc.akumal_02             So we are going to be lovin’ life and soaking up some sun in Mexico in a few months!b9dddeee-4c2d-4655-807b-f88466179bdf                I might go on a starvation diet before the cruise so I don’t feel guilty about eating all day :)lido_grill_lg             I’m sure we will be shoving small children out of our way to go down the slide on the boat.slide_lg               I plan on sitting here and reading my book and drinking diet coke (if we decide to buy a soda card…what a rip off!).serenity_lg           Maybe we’ll do some of this? Any tips or advice is much appreciate! Let me know if you have any suggestions about shopping, excursions, and cruises in general!Quintana Roo, Riviera Maya, Parasailing - Photo by Riviera Maya               So while the rest of you are enjoying this December 12-19…Snow-storm              We will be enjoying this…travel-business-hammock-beach1

The Circus

Dan and I went to the circus at the Energy Solutions Arena last week and it was really fun! We had seen the elephant parade and it was so exciting and then Dan’s brother invited us to go to the circus!

I got a discount from my work so we didn’t pay much at even though we were in the upper bowl, we were at the very bottom of the upper bowl :) IMG_6011 IMG_6012 There was so much to see and watch and I couldn’t see everything at once! They did some amazing things and we were completely entertained the entire time.IMG_6014 

The circus was on Friday and then on Saturday we went boating for the last time of the summer. It was such a gorgeous day and we wore wetsuit so it was really comfortable. I was so happy that I got some sun too!


After boating , we drove up to Alta to see the leaves. There were hardly any reds, but the bright green and yellow were beautiful!

I look awesome since we just finished boating…
