Ocho Rios, Jamaica (Caribbean Cruise 2/4)

Ocho Rios, Jamaica (Caribbean Cruise 2/4)

Good morning everyone! I hope everybody is having a fabulous Saturday! Today, I want to tune in and talk about my trip to the Caribbean!  Last week, in a torturously long post, I introduced you to the ship we sailed this time around, Carnival Horizon.  If you’re interested in cruising (yessss do it) and you want to hear about my experience with this cruise line, definitely check out that post! This week, I’m taking you into the Caribbean and we’ll be visiting our first port-of-call:  Ocho Rios, Jamaica. You’ll find that much like our Transatlantic Cruise last spring, my husband […]

Meet the Carnival Horizon (Caribbean Cruise 1/4)

Meet the Carnival Horizon (Caribbean Cruise 1/4)

Good morning my loves! Today marks the first in a series of four about my adventures on the Carnival Horizon and my trip into the Caribbean! This was actually my first time in the Caribbean – my husband and I went to Bermuda for our honeymoon, but Bermuda is actually in the Atlantic ocean, so this is officially the furthest south I’ve ever been! As some of you may know, I tend to pre-schedule my posts, so let me tell you about where I am as I’m writing this. It’s 6:25am and we’re in the middle of the Caribbean en […]

Mini Hiatus Announcement – Caribbean Bound!

Mini Hiatus Announcement – Caribbean Bound!

Mes dames et monsieurs, ladies and gentlemen – I just wanted to pop in and let you know that I’m going to be gone for a week. My husband and I are flying down to Fort Lauderdale today and from there we’ll be embarking on a short Caribbean cruise.  For those of you who have been with me since last spring, you’ll know that I love cruises and have been on a couple already.  This time, we’re sailing on the Carnival Horizon, and we’ll be visiting Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica. While I’m gone, my pre-scheduled posts will still be dropping as […]

Creme de la Creme de la Edgar: Disney Dining 3/3 (Disney Part 8)

Creme de la Creme de la Edgar: Disney Dining 3/3 (Disney Part 8)

Hi everyone!  Welcome back to the very last week (for real this time!) of our Disney vacation overview.  I can’t believe we ate at so many places that I was able to draw out three posts from it.  Kinda insane.  And to think that I was going to try and squish this in with all the other posts…. Well y’all will be delighted to know that this is the final travel-related post for a couple months.  Sometimes I do one-offs we I go to something different than usual (i.e. RICC or King Richard’s Faire) but other than the Bruins game last month, […]

Rustle Up Some Grub: Disney Dining 2/3 (Disney Part 7)

Hello my loves! Welcome to part two in my Disney Dining extravaganza!  Last week I spoke a little about restaurants at Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Disney Springs.  Today’s restaurants are all over the place!  From resorts to the parks, to one more stop in Disney Springs, I’ve got five more restaurants we visited and my thoughts on them.  Both of my husband’s favorites are on today’s list, so I hope you find some yummy stuff, too! Bon Voyage Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno Location:  Disney’s BoardWalk Inn. Style: Table-service, Character experience. If you read last week’s post, you’re probably starting to […]

Rumbly in My Tumbly:  Disney Dining 1/3 (Disney Pt. 6)

Rumbly in My Tumbly: Disney Dining 1/3 (Disney Pt. 6)

Note: I originally intended to do all the dining in one post, but this post got really long really fast, so I’ve decided to split it into three sections, each covering the food for two days.  Otherwise this is going to be a monster post! In our September trip to Disney World, one of the things we did in excess was eat.  We got the Deluxe Dining Plan because we didn’t want to have to worry about any food or drink needs, period.  Prepaid, and done.  I will start out by saying:  that is way too much food.  I will not do that again. […]
