Great day. New vaction booked  
I'm glad LJ is back now. I hope it stays that way. What a nice day I have had. Funny they said it would storm today but I think that happened last night. It was cloudy in the morning then quickly cleared up to a beautiful sunny day. So we could have gone kayaking. But it's ok. We got some other very important things done. The biggest thing was I did got to AAA and booked that cruise. I can't believe I did that. It's just so nice though I have a year to pay it off. So I don't feel pressured like I did the last two times. And it's even cheaper than last year. I told my agent that I like this. Each year it gets less and less. She laughed and said that was very unique and usually it goes up every year but that I seem to have a very unique life. We agreed with that. So this is for Aug of 2016 and will be for our 20th anniversary.

Chris and I then worked around the house which was very much needed. I'll be putting up 4th of July decorations soon. So the kitchen and the living room are almost cleaned now. Our anniversary is tomorrow for 11 years of marriage and 19 years and 4 months total. But we celebrated today and ate at Ruby Tuesdays. We both had red velvet cupcakes. The vanilla icing on them is the best and my fave of any cupcakes. We also went to Hobby Lobby and Chris bought me some very nice 4th of July decorations and a glass whale ornament of a cartoony sperm whale. I will get pics beause it's neat.

It's been a very full and good day. So Sunday we may go to one of the beaches to practice self rescue on our kayaks. We really need to learn the limits of our boats and how to flip them the right way and getting back in if we do accidentally flip. So basically it will be safety practice. Been wanting to do this since we got our boats.

Thanks. It's so exciting and a very long difficult wait too.

I check the website and you can put cruises into something that's like your faves on DA. I've been watching the price on this one and yesterday it really went down so that was my cue I should do it. That helped me decide. My agent explained there was a sale going on so we got the sale price which she said was very good and only slightly above what the agents get.

I'm not sure what 2021 will be like. I looked into the weddings and they are ridiculous. More expensive than the cruise. I want to keep it simple and cheap. Well I have six years to figure it out so it's ok.

Thank you. Yes we just got up and realize it is the 4th. That's the nice thing about 4's. We get to reasons to celebrate in July.

So, where are you going this time on your cruise? That's very cool that you can pay it off. Congratulations on reaching your 20 year anniversary!

It will be leaving Ft. Lauderdale FL, St. Maarten, San Juan Puerto Rico, Labadee Haiti and back to FL. I really wanted Puerto Rico. Will be new for Chris. I want to see that fort. And we both loved Labadee and really wanted to go back so this is perfect.

Hurray you are able to have a trip :) I know you were worried about not having one. Good for you :)

Sorry I'm so late replying. I just happened to find this. This is a trip for 2016. But yes I'm excited about it. It's on my mind a good bit. Kind of odd it won't be a Halloween vacation though.
