In six short days I'll be on a cruise ship.
Headed for the Bahamas.

Seven nights.
Eight women.
All related.

My 3 sisters, 2 cousins, mom, and aunt are all going to soak up the sun and seas.
There's a few "firsts" for me ...

  • First time to have a Passport.  
  • First time to use a Passport.
  • First cruise.
  • First time to the Caribbean.
  • First time vacationing with the girls in the fam.
  • First time I've vacationed without Mr. D  :(
Anyone have any tips for me?  I'm all ears... and eyes!

We have some amazing men in our lives ... who encouraged us to take this trip.
Love you Mr. D!


  1. HELLOOOO... Massage.... :-)

    1. I know, I know! Maybe when I get home Wendy!?

  2. Well something tells me you are going to have a great time, with all those ladies. It's been 30 yrs since the one and only cruise I took (our honeymoon) My advise would be to lose about 5 pound before you go... ha ha. The food is amazing and there is so much of it (everywhere you turn around). LOTS of sunscreen!!!. Hope you have a great time Cheri...I know you will!

    1. It's sure to be a wild and crazy time with this group of women!

  3. Have a fabulous vacation! I look forward to all photos when you return!

    1. Thanks Karyn! I'm sure I'll be taking a few!

  4. Buy your kids awesome souvenirs! And have fun! I'm so excited for you to take this trip, mom!

  5. Natey ... you are so be excited for your mom to take a trip! I'll look into souvenirs kiddo and see what I can do :)

  6. You need some books to read :-) by the pool with an umbrella drink and some sunscreen - It will be a blast

    LOTSSSS of sunscreen. You will be closer to the equator, and the sun is definitely more intense! Go snorkeling! The fish are amazing! When you get onto the ship, you can't immediately go to your room. Board early, have a backpack packed with essentials and head directly to the pool, you can change in a bathroom if you like. (They take your luggage before you board, so you won't see it until you get to your room later). Have a wonderful time and an umbrella drink for me!

  8. Warm weather sounds good already and it's not even winter yet!

  9. Hey Big Sis! I can't wait to share this experience with you and our wonderful family of women. I look forward to all the time we get to spend together and the memory making. I plan on peeing my pants from laughing at least once! lol Looking forward to sipping come CoCo Loco's with you, relaxing and all this trip will bring us! See you tomorrow!!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!
    Love you so much,
