we're going somewhere..
We are going somewhere warm. Can you guess?
Florida? Yes, you are correct. We are flying into Florida and then..
taking one of these:to a place that looks like this:
and these guys will be arriving in high style to meet us..
That's right, the Caribbean. And why have I not mentioned this and gone on and on about this? Well, there's a lot of reasons, but NOW I need to focus, pack and dye my hair blonde.
Yes, blonde. Is there any caucasian in the Caribbean who does not have blonde hair? See? I don't want to be the only one.
So, when I get all gussied up for those fancy cruise dinners, and wear an updo..
or have to be a discerning tourist on the islands..
or just hang out with the family, hedge-hogging, I'll be blonde and ditzy.
Thanks to my kids who helped me put the highlights in, thanks to my husband who gave me haircut. Thanks to my in-laws who are making this awesome cruise possible--who had the nice-ness (is that a word??) to take all 22 of us (all kids, spouses, and grandchildren) to celebrate their 50 years of marriage.
I am so blessed to be in such a wonderful, generous family.
So, I probably will not have access to internet much while I'm away for a bit. But if it is
possible, I'll throw some pictures your way here and there. It is a seven day cruise. That's about all I know for now.
I have to pack.. I mean find my concrete girdle to wear under the cocktail dress...yeah.
Pray for us. Because it really doesn't matter that my kids are traveling with me, I am still having pre-trip anxiety... (aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh)
And that just proves to you that some hedgehogs prefer to be at home rather than travel. But here I go, again. France, Germany, and now the Caribbean in the past year, already. When I get home, I'm staying home for a while. I'm going to enjoy my fire in the fireplace and adorn myself with as many children and guests and homemade pizza as I can possibly fit into my livingroom and call it luxury. But for now, I will enjoy what the rest of the world calls "luxury".
