The Carnival Magic

I love cruising.  To me it is one of the ways I loose complete control of time.  When I was on my recent cruise I didn’t wear a watch, my cell phone was never on, and I could NEVER tell you the time. In fact I didn’t care.

By time my cruise was over, I was beyond relaxed and stress free (2 hours back in my cubicle Monday morning and all that was gone in a snap, but that is is neither here nor there)

We sailed on the Carnival Magic.  It was a beautiful ship.  There was so much to do on the ship it was hard to get bored.  I took a more relaxing approach on the ship, reading on the deck, taking regular naps & meeting the crew of the ship.  If relaxing is not your speed, the ship offered many opportunities to do something a little more active.

I recommend sailing on the ship if you are ever able.  Here are some of my favorite pictures of the ship. 🙂

Book Review Sunday

sigh… Richelle Mead you have done it again. Today’s review is on

7802254

She tapped into all my emotions.  I am happy, sad, angry and giddy about the way the book ended.

I am keeping this review short, because every little thing I want to say could be a major spoiler.

And is it just me, or should Mead totally do a spin off on Carter?

I loooooooooooooovvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeee Carter, love love love him.

I was so happy to find out what his purpose was, even though I still wanted him and Georgie to get it on.

I know I am a bad girl.

and Roman… sad face… actually sad face with tears 🙁

I had a totally did not see that coming moment too.

After reading the last book I knew something odd was going on with Seth, but I didn’t realize it would be THAT.  (it is really good people, start the series like now!!!)

I give this book

Because the entire series is that good, I have loved every single book Mead has written, and the Succubus series is no different.

Have you read the series? What did you think?

 

 

 

food. food. and more food.

“I went on this cruise last week and the food was AMAZING.”

When you talk to some one that cruises often, they often talk about the food.  Not the BEAUTIFUL destination they went to, but the food. True Story.

As Americans, when we plan travel we often plan the food.  I know I do.  I get excited about all the food I am going to get to try.  I am finally going to branch and out and try something exotic.

Well on this trip I didn’t, but not from lack of food.

I don’t really have that type of relatinship with food.  I am in by no means a foodie, and I often joke if I could get everything I needed from an IV I would do that and not eat.

Now that being said.  I did eat on this cruise and I did eat a lot.

So if you ever go on a cruise, be prepared, very prepared to eat. 
Here are pics of some of the food I was able to try on the beautiful Carnival Magic.  Key word is SOME of the food.
