Eating wise-not too shabby! I am pleased with how my band reacted. The first half of the trip I was pretty loose and able to eat pretty much anything. I had protein bars for breakfast, usually a taco for lunch, and for dinner I indulged! Since my palette isn't very large, I stuck to the classics most evenings. I started with french onion soup (the cheese is protein enough right? lol) then I followed this with caprese salad (again more cheese) for dinner I stuck with the chicken and steak dishes, and every night I concluded dinner with dessert (and finished all of it, most times!) Let me tell you- I was not deprived on this trip! Towards the second half of the week though my band started to tell me to slow down! Lunches became harder to keep down, and dinner started to end with a PB. Nothing I couldn't handle though, I was out of my routine and eating differently it was to be expected. I didn't not go to the gym while on the ship, although we did do plenty of walking! Rick and I ended up getting a drink package making all drinks under $8 free! By the end of the trip our room invoice said we had gotten over 100 drinks! OOOPS! Needless to say, we enjoyed ourselves!
The scale fairy was definitely on my side for this vacation- I left last Friday weighing 173 and came home to weighing 174.5 and today I was back to 173.2 so mostly sodium I'm guessing. I don't know how I managed it, but however I did it I am ecstatic!
So for anyone who has considered cruising I definitely recommend it! Maybe next year we do a short Florida-Bahamas BOOB cruise? Now that could be dangerous!
I will finish this with a few pictures from the vacation- you can friend my on facebook if we aren't already friends to see more if you'd like!
I'm glad to be back, and I am loving reading all of these BOOB posts about everyones anxiety. I know I would be one of the top posters on this topic if I was going so its fun to read. I hope everyone has a fantastic and safe trip. I can't wait to see pictures and to be able to join next year! While you are gone I will be in my friends wedding and will make sure to have a drink in honor of everyone! XXOO

A decoration in your home that is very meaningful to you - a family heirloom, a gift from your BFF, etc.
For me this was easy, it was the first thing that came to mind...I'm not sure if it fits the description exactly, but to me it the most meaningful object in my home (besides Ricky that is) haha.
So without further adieu let me introduce you to the first boy I ever slept with.....
Bloggers- Let me introduce you to foofy. Foofy is a stuffed bunny (if you can't tell) that I have had since the day I was born. When I first got him he was white and furry, now after 25 years of love he is grayish and bare. He is my own personal velveteen rabbit! I sleep with him every night- and every night Ricky threatens to throw him away lol. I think hes jealous! I used to tell him that once I got a ring, I would stop sleeping with Foofy- but that didn't work out so well (oops) Foofy is here to stay and not going anywhere anytime soon.
I hope you all enjoyed meeting the love of my life- I can't wait to see what everyone else shares! xxoo

This was pretty simple for me- I love my eyes! I honestly feel they are my best feature and the first thing people notice about me. I will admit when I was younger I always wished I had a fun eye color like blue, green or hazel instead I have what I often referred to as "cucka brown" eyes. They are so dark brown that they are almost black, they are mesmerizing! Here they are:
