3rd Year Anniversary Island Adventure

To celebrate 3 years as Mr. & Mrs., we decided to set sail to Jamaica and the Cayman Islands for our 3rd cruise adventure. The whole 3 on 3 thing just happened to work out in our favor. Our vacation started out on the right foot with a second interview for Asha in the morning. She walked away feeling great and about 30 minutes later, we got the call for a job offer! Like we said, our vacation started out on the right foot! Ecstatic, we celebrated with breakfast from the one and only Bojangles', discussing the pros/cons of the new job. The pros weighed out the cons and Asha called back accepting the job! We were both floating on cloud 9 as we danced and sang our little hearts out on the way to the Sunshine State. NEW JOB! NEW JOB! NEW JOB! NO MORE 3 HOUR DAILY COMMUTE!!! We are crazy excited to say the least!

We arrived to Miami late Friday night and had no problem throwing down some pizza our friend Rachel had ordered for us. Rachel is simply the best as she opened her home to us for the night and drove us to our cruise destination the next day. We boarded the ship with ease on Saturday afternoon as we sipped on some cocktails and enjoyed the view of the Miami skyline. Before we knew it, the ship blew it's giant air horns and we were off, admiring the view on the way out. We stuffed our faces full that night (and for the rest of the entire trip) as we feasted on our 3 course meal that we had been dreaming about for the past month or so. Afterwards, we headed to our favorite, cheesy Vegas-style stage show where we met our spunky and entertaining cruise ship director who would lead us to all things fun the next 5 days.

Sunday was a Fun Day at Sea where we were lucky to grab a cabana for the morning that was made for napping, reading and relaxing like no other. We had a great view of the ocean as we sailed along to our first destination, Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Sleep, eat and drink. That's pretty much all we did that day. AND IT WAS GLORIOUS. We enjoyed being serenaded at dinner that night as all of the hosts gathered and sang "Happy Anniversary to You" having other guests pipe in. Another show was calling our name as we headed to the stage for "Living in America" featuring the Victory Dancers, live band and two vocal singers.

We came back to the room and were greeted by our evening towel animal, anticipating the upcoming Jamaican adventure. Yeah, mon! We couldn't wait!
