My turn on the Love Boat!

So as a young girl I watched "The Love Boat" every Saturday night. My mom would line my 2 sisters and I up in front of the tv to put pink sponge rollers in our hair that we would sleep in all night so that we would have curly pretty hair for Church on Sunday morning. So as a little girl with a weekly date with the Love Boat (I really wanted to be Julie McCoy) I could not help but dream about going on a cruise someday. When I got married I told Jake that a cruise was big on the dream list before our 10th anniversary. Well here it is the 10th anniversary of our engagement and I am going on a cruise. Yipee!
We leave a week from today. We are actually going with people from Jake's company and everyone's store that met its goals within the company is going. The best part ever is that my sister in law Valerie, and her husband (Jake's brother) Jed are going too. Val and I are good friends and our husbands have been known to be fun haters in the past, so when they are being poopy, we leave our husbands in their cabins with free room service and Val and I can go have fun. Plus my wonderful sister and mother in law are coming to take care of the boys so I know they will be happy and well taken care of while I am gone.
I seriously don't remember the last time I have been so excited! I must admit I have stayed up way too late, way too many nights, reading cruise reviews and happily planning with my sister in law about what we will do and what we will wear. I know that our rooms will probably be so small that we sleep on our suitcases and that I will probably gain 10lbs from the buffets and that I probably won't be able to actually kiss a dolphin but for right now I dream in ignorant bliss! So watch out Captain Stubing and Gopher and Doc- Here I come!
