The Bitch Is Back!

Hi Ya'll!

It feels good to finally be back after a long time of hiatus! So what is it that I've been doing while I was away? Let me share with you!

I went on a 7 day cruise to Cabo and Puerto Vallarta for my Dad and amazing new Step-mom's wedding.

This was our ship, The Carnival Splendor.

The quickest Wedding Ceremony I have ever witnessed, which was perfect and gave us plenty of time to enjoy what you see below!

This was our reception spread. Crazy right? Plus we had an open bar for 2 hours. 

The girls of the Cruise/Wedding party: Me, Debster the bride and Deb's friend Carol.

This was my champagne! Delicious!

After, the reception... And Muster Station Drill, we had a dance party!

My brother got a little carried away.

Me and the beautiful bride.

And I met a cute boy, who coincidentally is the owner of that sign above.

On Halloween I partied with Rock Stars! Deb, my Dad, and two other cruise goers.

My Dad, the 80's Rocker, Me (I'm a sailor, which I thought was fitting since we were on a boat) Carol was Marilyn and Debbie was a Disco Groupie!)

And we danced some more!
Me and Joe the fireman along with Maverick and a Bumble bee.

Our first day in Cabo we went on a glass bottom boat tour. Who knew tropical fish really like tortillas!

This was us Girls on the boat tour. Cabo was beautiful. And it was cool to ride on the Sea of Cortez one minute which was smooth and calm and then head in to the Pacific Ocean which was rocky. There was even a water temperature difference!

Of course in Cabo we had to stop at Cabo Wabo for some frosty margaritas!

After one day at sea we were in Puerto Vallarta!

Me and my brothers bestie/ my really big "little brother" Tanner doing some sight seeing. 

Puerto Vallarta was beautiful, but unbelievably hot!

To cool off we stopped at Senor Frogs for drinks. Tanner did tequila shots!

Sol was the beer of choice in Mehico. It was delicious.

This was my punishment for not taking a tequila shot.

On our way back to the ship we ran into a little place selling 3 Coronas for $5! So we took advantage. 

This is Tanner trying on all his Mexican Purchases. Apparently he's a Packers fan.

The view from our Cabin. Breathtaking.

Our room Steward made us towel animals. And the boys always put them in my bed for when I got home.

I like this one the best!

The day we got back, we got off the boat, dropped the fam off at the airport and then me and my little brother headed to my NEW apartment to help my Mama (who was watching my little wiener dog for me) move me from the old place to the new place. It took 3 days and a moving sale but I finally got moved in. I'm still doing some unpacking, but promise I will post pictures this time as soon as I am done.

After my mom and brother headed back to Seattle, I took a couple days to get my life settled in, and started back to work at my waitressing job. I got an email from my student advisor from the Art Institute for a job lead with a kitchen and bath company. Not thinking anything would happen, I called the design firm and what do ya know, the next day I was on a ride along interview with Alex the owner and got the job! I signed all the paper work yesterday and officially start on Monday! 

SO, as you can see, my life has been a crazy whirlwind of events he last couple months. I'm hoping that  by next week I will finally be completely unpacked and hopefully get easily settled into my exciting new job. If anyone happens to know of a dog sitter/ walker in the Mission Viejo area, please let me know. Little Roxie is a major concern of mine while I deal with this new chapter of my life!

Happy Thursday everyone!
