Our Christmas Cruise (FINALLY)

This year for Christmas we went on a cruise with my Dad and Michelle and all the family and their special someones.. Our cruise went to Roatan Honduras, Belize , Costa Maya Mexico, and NCL private island in the Bahamas.
It was a super crazy Saturday when we left our flight was supposed to have everyone on it and we were all supposed to be making our first stop in JFK, NY but because of their massive snow storm that hit they had to mess around with every ones flights. We all were supposed to end up in Miami well.. we all ended up in Orlando in a hotel room for the night, and had to wake up the next morning and drive to Miami. But because of the amazing large number in our group it was actually cheaper to take a giant Escalade Limo than to rent enough cars for everyone to fit in. So we road in style :)
Honduras this was our first stop on the cruise it was a super rainy day and the plan was to go on an extreme zipline. The bus ride was kinda long... but when we got there they got us all harnessed up and put helmets on us which they told us when we piled into these small vans to go to the top of the zipline that they were for that car ride which i completely believe it was the most extreme off roading i have ever done, we even got stuck and ended up walking the rest of the way. At the very end of the zipline is where we met Nates monkey friend that wouldnt go to anyone else but him he basically claimed Nate as his property (he was a gay monkey) it made sense lol by the end of the visit with the monkey we pretty much wanted to bring him home with us

In Belize when we got off the ship we went and found a Cave Tubing Guide and told them we were gonna be a min because we needed to find the missionaries that were waiting for us we brought toys for the kids in Belize and brought them for the missionaries to take. The Guide was more than happy to help us he even went and got them for us. Then we were on our way we were headed to go Cave Tubing. So we hoped on a bus a drove for about 40 min. We stopped at all local convenient shop Nate got a Coke and i thought i was getting a Diet Coke but it was pretty much a Coke Zero :( When we got there we got in our swim suits got our tubes and hiked about 2 miles to our entry point in the river. Everything was beautiful! and cold.. being inside a cave meant there was no sun so it was pretty chilly. i wish we had pictures of some of these gorgeous caves but since we were in water it didn't work out that way.

Costa Maya Mexico, this day we were supposed to go out on two little boats and snorkel for awhile and then that boat was going to come back and one was going to stay out so the boys could go fishing. The water was REALLY choppy that day so for some it turned into a beach day which i was more than happy about! :) Nate, my Dad, AJ and Tiffany's husband Brent all decided they were going to go fishing anyways. Apparently Nate and Brent got a little sea sick they did catch one fish though my dear sweet hubby caught a lovely barracuda. When they got back and Nate felt a little better we went shopping on the walk way of the beach. Nate had fun talking people down with Trevor they were a pretty good team :)

NCL's private island, i wish i could tell you all about this fun private island but to be honest i didnt even get off the boat this day because it was rainy and cold.. we did stay and play with Austin and Madi on the slide Austin was loving that. Austin made a new friend with Nate him and Madi we going down the slide with him. I was going down the slide so slow i think the little kids were starting to yell at me.. lol

All in all it didn't feel like Christmas but it sure was alot of fun :)

a very christmas weekend


So this year my dad invited Nate and I on a cruise with my entire family so since we wont be home for Christmas we decided to have it a little early... and well basically Sunday was our best choice because Nate's work schedule is so crazy this week... at least i cant complain to much he will at least be home every night and is getting 40 hours of overtime.. We spent the weekend getting ready for Christmas it all started on Friday when Nate came in to get a much needed hair cut from me.. he got a call from his boss saying that his Christmas bonus was in and that he could come pick it up at 3.. :) that night was date night :) just like most Fridays we did dinner and a movie one of my favorites Chandler and his girlfriend Andrea joined us it was really fun. After the movie Nate and i were walking around the mall cause we remembered we hadn't found our Christmas ornament yet this year, we want to make a tradition to get a new one every year.. well we found one so we are off to a good start!! ( we got it personalized too)
Saturday while i was at school Nate got the rest of my Christmas done, since he is gone all the time i was able to get his done really fast without him being here to see it or ask where i was. That night was my moms Christmas party we made yummy Peanut Butter Balls to take over and fun little gifts for everyone. We got my sister the Elmo Tickle Hands which everything Elmo she calls Nemo? At least she has to MO??? lol The Christmas party was alot of fun the food was delicious and my mom gave wonderful Christmas presents! Nate was so grateful and excited about his $100 dollar gift card he received ( thanks mom!) It obviously got Nate in the Christmas mood cause on the way home Nate wanted to have our Christmas that night.. didn't happen i stuck to my guns that it was going to be in the morning. I woke up at like 430 and was ready to go i figured Nate wouldn't quite be ready though hahah so when i tried waking him up at 5 it didnt work so well... we finally got up at about 7.All i n all we had a wonderful fake Christmas weekend Nate did a wonderful job on my gifts and he claims i did that same. Cant wait for out cruise next week! I still think its sad that I'm REALLY super excited cause i get to have a full week with Nate its been a very long time since i have had a full entire week though.. we are doing lots of other fun stuff that i will take pictures of and blog about when we get home :)

the Hair Mishab..

so Saturday i had a full busy schedule my sister Madi came to school with me and she was up first to get her hair cut. Followed shortly after was my mom we were doing a full horizontal slice weave. After that I was supposed to have a Shampoo Set which i was kinda nervous about i haven't done one of those on a live head yet... so my sisters haircut went well and i set up for my moms.. she wants to put in a 10N 30 vol. and a 7N 20 vol. it would have made a beautiful color... unfortunately the 10N didn't lift at all.. which made no sense because directly from the book it should have over lifted.. so not giving my first client exactly what they wanted let alone my MOM! i kinda felt really uneasy about it and i wanted to know WHY. i asked all of the learning leaders and they could NOT give me a reason they said it should have worked.. so i called Mindi my hairstylist (who is AMAZING) and she explained to me that the only reason that would have happened is my developer had processed. that the lid had probably been left off and the chemicals weren't able to lift it because it had been previously processed. I felt awful that my first mistake had to happen on my mom.. Thanks for being a trooper Mom! :)
