DH and I will be traveling alone, but would love to participate in the FE fun, SATS, and GOAA. May consider the CG-sounds like lots of fun and I have a tiara from a bridal shower I attended recently.

We are in cabin #6626, so it looks like some of you will be our neighbors. Scheduled for 2nd dining.

Staying at the Hilton Head resort for several days prior to cruise and the Radisson at Cape Canaveral the night before we board. Would love to meet up with people the night before.

The Emerald Hotel on St. Thomas is something we are considering at this point. Will have to investigate to see how close it is to where we will be docked. Would be interested in sharing transportation with others who may be doing the same.

DH will be wearing a dark charcoal suit rather than a tux. I would be pushing my luck too far with that. I will be dressy, but not in a dress. I'm more the fancy pants type of girl.

Good grief!! Did I cover everything I wanted to get in? Wanted to post a photo, but seems I didn't know exactly what I was doing. Maybe I'll talk to my son and try it again.

Thanks to all of youwho worked to get this thread set up and have kept it going while so many of us are just lurkers. Will try to do better.


Hi Joan, so glad you jumped on here. I'm also happy that you and Sam will be joining all of us for many festivities onboard. As far as the tiaras for the Champagne Girls goes.....I already have them here at home and will bring them. I have plenty for everyone and I'm just giving them out. No need to pay for them. Also the pink feather boas that go with them. We must look pretty in pink for our picture!!!

DH John and I are doing the Emerald Beach hotel in St. Thomas. We would love to share transportation with you both if you do it too.

Definitely come to Fishlips and join us for dinner the night before the cruise. We'll have lots of fun getting the party started.

You know, we're practically neighbors in PA. How about doing a mini meet before our cruise?

At any rate, WELCOME aboard and glad that you have joined us here.

Deb(EllaEnchanted) is organising a meal at Fishlips down near the port on the Friday night. I know there are a few going along, and I also know you would have a great time and meet some lovely people.



Hi Marilyn, so nice of you to say that to Joan about the Fishlips group. She should know that you and John too are a very lovely couple....and you'll be neighbors onboard.

Did you have fun today at Mickey's house? What did you do?

Any special plans for tomorrow? It's so great that you are able to take a long and leisurely vacation.....well at least until the kids and grands get there.....hahahah.....but that will be great too.

Continue having fun. Think of us and post some pictures please. We want to live vivaciously through you!!!

I have reached a critical mass of smilies on post 1 page 1. I will not be able to add bouncies to indicate interest in Champagne Girls, Geezers of All Ages or Shots around the Ship for those who express an interest, I can only post the initials.

My thought is, if we get to another thread, I can make the roll call take two posts and split the alphabet, but for now, I hope no one has hurt feelings over this.

THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING.

Jan

Hey Jan... why don't you just take on a different way of doing it... for the champagne girls, give us lushes a big * with the color pink... and so on and so on... save the smilies for other good stuff...

This week I officially started but my weigh in is not until Friday morning.....so we'll see how I'm doing at that point. I feel good. So that helps.

I'm really not a cooker. John does any cooking in this house. Usually a crock pot meal over the weekend that we can eat during the week and then supplement with other foods. Last weekend he made boneless, skinless chicken breasts in chicken broth with tomatoes. It was delicious. He also made brown rice and red beans. It was easy to mix it up with veggies and fruits during the week.

Oh, John is an avid Food Network watcher. He really loves cooking. I only watch Emeril from time to time. I love your suggestion to try stir fry. I'll talk to John about it. Thanks.
Well it all starts with a great attitude and you have that, so I expect you are off to a great start! I love the chicken in the crock pot with tomatoes...yummy! My DH loves his rice so I make lots of crock pot stuff he can pour over rice and /or rice/beans! I skip the rice unless I'm in "detox" week - then I can have a little starch and usually opt for brown rice. I used to LOVE Emeril but for some reason and I'm not sure why - his "bam" is driving me batty. I do love that British gal Nigela! Something about her and her passion for food really gets me. Also love Giada - she's so beautiful and sweet.

I vote for a new dress!!!! Do you know if most people do cocktail type or gowns? I don't want to look freakish - if I choose a long dress - but I will be able to use it on the 2010 TransAtlantic too - so I'm thinking it might be nice for once. Since I'm not really a "dressy up" type person - I'm trying to step out of the box and grow a bit. Especially since my DH likes me to be girly... he's worth attempting to step out of the box for... thinking about taking some dancing lessons to - since he can cut the rug - anyone ever do that?

I've always done floor length gowns. No poofy ball gowns or anything like that. I've never felt like it was overkill. To me it's the only time I get to wear something like that. I wonder if I have a pic from the TA in '07 if not I'm sure I can find the dress at least.

Ok, I don't have a pic of me in the dress (at least not here at work) but I was able to find a pic of the dress I wore on the TA in '07. It's black with gold glitter all over it and a gold band that goes around the neck.

Thanks!!!! I love it too, but I do feel it's time for a new treat. I'll probably end up taking it with me on the Baltic cruise also since it's a longer cruise and I'll need more than one dressy dress.

We always overdress for formal night. I never get to dress up otherwise.

Congrats to all on the weight loss. I gained so much weight while dh was in Afghanistan. I wasn't exercising much and eating way too much junk. Now, I hope to lose some, but need to get started. He also gained weight and said the food they served was so bad, he ate a lot of pasta and bread. He would've been better off going off base to eat, but wasn't allowed.

I am definitely keen to dress up! I rarely do in my 'real' life and I too have shed some pounds since our last cruise - 24lbs since August 2008 and counting... So I think it's time to invest in a nice outfit...
