Oh baby, it's cruising time!

Yes 2, count them 2, days until we are going on our cruise! The best part? It's courtesy of Back to Basics. The only way to cruise is for free. Sweet. But the thing I'm almost more excited for (I said almost), is Magic Mountain! I've never been there, and I'm kind of a coaster person. I get way freaked out, and usually scream til I lose my voice (which makes Sean happy), but I love to be scared. So we'll be spending Saturday there, and Sunday through Sunday we will be on the high seas, matey. Mazatlan, Cabo San Lucas, and Puerto Vallarta. Nice. You have permission to hate me.

I've entered the 21st century!

I just took a big step. I went from a 1990's-esqe phone to a new BlackBerry. Or as my friends that all have one like to refer to them, a CrackBerry, because they're so addicting. I'm quite stoked about my new toy. It has all the cool stuff that techno geeks fear, email, IM, text messaging, calendar, and applications like excel and word (which will be coming soon since I had to get the special Mac version). So now I feel cool. At least for today. My thumbs already hurt from typing emails on it. I guess I'll have to get them callused up.

This looks like a nice second home

I don't know about any of you, but I don't have a second home. Unless you count the trailer, but I don't. HGTV has an awesome dream home giveaway and you can enter every day until Feb. 17th. It's in North Carolina, which is a little far away, but i figure if we win it (which of course we will because I always win anything I enter, just ask my Creative Memories and Stampin' up ladies), we'll be able to visit Bry and Kik, and Chelle and Ken. Or maybe we could just live there full time. whatever. I'm leaving my options open. But if you'd like to enter, go to It's worth a shot.

My first fill today!

I get to have my first fill today! I'm quite excited, but nervous. It will give me more restriction on what I can eat and also how much I can eat. I should really start seeing some more drastic weight loss now. We leave on our cruise in 24 days, not that I'm counting, and I'm hoping I can be down another 10 pounds by then. It depends on how much they put in through the port. It should be anywhere from 1-2 cc's, so not much, but enough to make a difference. I'll definitely post later about how it went. Wish me luck!!

I posted this educational picture of what the band looks like with the port visible. The port is near my belly button on the left side, which I have to laugh about, because that's the Port Side in nautical terms. How appropriate for the cruise. Now I'll never forget which is port side, and which is starboard. Ha ha ha.
