New Year catch up

Wow 2016 has came to an end.   It was a great year.... Fitness and health I could have done MUCH MUCH better and I had some very lazy months which led to weight gain and laziness.  My sugar has not been as well controlled, so I will HAVE to get a hold of that in 2017..

I am on a new adventure. I have 4 more work days with my current employer.  I have changed jobs alot over the last 2 years. Left my Office Manager role to move to Scheduer (Same company but different location) in 2015.  In 2016 I left that company all together to be Scheduler for a different Home Health company... I don't believe it was a good move. I have been unhappy there since I took the position. So I interviewed and have been given the opportunity to do Physician scheduling nationwide for a company... its different than anything I have done before. There is room for advancement and incentives and well I am just hopeful it will be a better fit for me.

I am ready to embrace 2017 and excited for all it has to offer.

Not resolutions, but plans for the NEW YEAR
1. Control blood sugar
2. Make my new job as positive as I can
3. Work fitness back into my life consistently
4. Try to eat more meals at home

Happy New Year Folks.

Happy Anniversary (14 Years )

Thomas and I celebrated our 14th anniversary.

We enjoyed beer and hot wings at Buffalo Wild Wings and then went an skated at the skating rink.  Our first date was the skating rink in South Huntsville... it isn't opened any more so we settled for our local rink (The Skate Castle) which is where we have spent the most time skating. Below are a few pics/videos.

On another note I am so very thankful I have this wonderful man in my life. I wouldn't trade our relationship for ANYTHING!

First Cruise 2016

Thomas and I went on our first cruise EVER.  Here is a little story about it.  We went out of New Orleans on Carnival Triumph to Cozumel and Progresso.

We started off running late because we couldn't get luggage to fit in the car as we thought and we had to go get the car career for luggage and that had me stressed and on edge.... but thankfully Thomas was able to get the problem solved and we were on the road. We stopped to pick up My Mom and Charlie and we headed on to New Orleans to board our ship.  Due to running behind we breezed right through the terminal and got right on the ship without any delays or long lines.  Here are some of the photos from day one.  I will say that this night when we got to the cabin Thomas and I both got a little nauseaus so we put our seasick patches on... these were a life saver!!!

Day 2 was a sea day which means we sat on the boat all day... THERE IS PLENTY TO KEEP YOU BUSY THOUGH... it was also our formal dinner night.  Here are some photos from that day.... I will mention the boat rocked A LOT on this day, many were seasick, I was very thankful for the patches my doctor prescribed for me!!!!

Day 3: We ported in Cozumel.  This day we had planned an adventure to go to Mr. Sancho's resort for the day. We got to experience some crazy local driving and a wonderful day at the beach with mucho mucho alcohol :)   I enjoyed a massage, a fish pedicure, took some photos with some exotic animals and drank my first ever MR. SANCHO MARARITA which I am now and forever in love with.... it was a marvelous day, I just wish I could go back!!! Here are some photos from that day, also this was HALLOWEEN!!! When we got back on the ship we got to take part in a MASSIVE Halloween party and TONS of folks participated in costumes and had some REALLY REALLY Good ones too!!


Day 4: Port in Progresso.  Thomas and I booked an excursion called Salsa and Salsa.  IT WAS THE BEST!!! We took a van into Mirida and got to see the Capital. We got to see the park, and tour an old cathedral.  We then went back to a hotel and were taught how to make margaritas, salsas and how to do the salsa dance.  Then back to the ship.... very fun filled day! One of our travel mates on this excursion was really nice but WAYYYYY Wasted lol but it made for more memories. I LOVED IT HERE!

Day 5: Sea day heading back home.... It was a marvelous day where we got to lounge around, gamble in casino, watch a comedy show, and enjoy a nice dinner same as EVERY NIGHT. The food is AMAZING!!! We enjoyed EVERY MINUTE on the ship and the show at the end was simply magnificent.  I look forward to our next trip!!!
