天下没有不散的宴席

The saddest thing about a vacation is that it has to come to an end.  It is good to be home, though there is no way we can keep it as clean as our room steward kept our stateroom!

A great time was had by all.  I gained weight, oy, 2.5 lbs, despite the fact I ran 5-7 miles a day!  I tell ya, 550 calories worked off have nothing on a bite of cheesecake!  LOL.


It'll be a while before I have any photos printed from the Caribbeans, how about I share another layout from the last vacation using the Midnight Rooster October kit? :)  Sometimes an aggravating situation can actually be a major blessing.  It would have been nice to have everyone smiling face photographed with the monument immortalizing the Greats of American Democracy, but as it was... hilarious... 
I stacked a bunch of cut out arrows from a glorious sheet from Studio Calico's Documentary collection.  And of course, just a simple MFT stamped gal "are we there yet" to make it look fabulous, at least I think so :)

That's it for now, time to get mentally prepared to return to the real real life: working 7-4 :)  ciao!!!

Colette Bate said...

ohhh, what awesome vacation pic's girly! Looks like the little ones were having a great time! Nothing like lots of fresh, salty air and and couple extra pounds to re-charge the batteries, huh? I'll bet you can attest to the philosophy that you need a vacation AFTER the vacation just to rest up!

Love the page, too. A big pat on the back for getting that photo in spite of the REFUSAL to participate! It's hilarious! I've got a TON of those kinds of photos ... usually it's ME that's refusing! bbwwahahaha

Welcome home, honey. It's good to have you back.
