Stampin' Up! Cruise 2010 - Day 2 at sea

ADSCN1898 copy Wow.. I've got over 50 photos I'd love to share from Day 2 of the cruise... so I will divide them up into 2 days... today will be the "people and food" photos and tomorrow will be all the stamping ideas! :) 


I truly think everyone should start the day like this ... being served breakfast in the dining room ! :) Oh.. and that empty chair... that would be because JASON WAS STILL SLEEPING!  lol

after the Stampin' Up! General Session meeting, taking tons of pix of stamping ideas in the Hospitality Lounge and exploring the ship, it was already time for lunch!  They have a Johnny Rockets restaurant on the ship... we have one near our house and it's a fun place to eat burgers and fries..

ADSC02682 copy

At the back of the ship there is mini golf, inline skating, a rock climbing wall and a sport cort!  Oh, and a golf simulator that Jason used later that week.


And yes... I'll admit it..... I plopped $20 into the $1 slot machine called Pink Panther... Eric and Jason thought it was rather a "sissy" machine >>>> UNTIL>>>> it paid out $110 !! :) :) :)

You only have to be 18 to be able to go in the casino on the ship.. so Jason could go in with us.. he was pretty thrilled at the prospect..

That evening was formal night #1 ... here are several photos of us ...

I LOVE that you have all these wonderful opportunities and you share them with us!! :) Looks like loads of fun!

Sandi MacIver

Wow, what an amazing adventure, and girlfriend, you clean up real good!, Jason looked like he had a great time too. He looks so dashing in his suit!.


Your son must be sick and tired of going on all these trips with you, SO...I have volunteered myself to take his place!! My pleasure, really!!! Please try to give me advance notice so I can carefully pick the right bling and all for the trip...but I can also wing it and arrive at a moments notice. Thanks so much for your kindness in allowing me to be your guest!!
Love ya,

Tami Black

STOP WITH THE FOOD! I've gained 20 pounds reading your blog! Looks to absolutely die for!

Trish Hoffman

I am still in awe of the immense size of the ship. I just can't get over how much room there is on board. Food everywhere...looks wonderful, but I would have come home weighing at least 40lbs more than I did when I left, just from looking at all of the wonderful creations. Even on the computer monitor it all looks good enough to eat. Yum, yum, yum. Thanks for sharing your fun times with us.

Cyber hugs, Trish in Wisconsin
