I haven't been on a cruise since I was 17 years old, during which time I was too jaded to really take in the experience. So... this time, while cruising in the Bahamas to such places as: Turks & Caicos or Nassau, I will take full advantage of being in paradise & explore everything each port has to offer! I should also mention that It took some convincing to even get Kevin on a cruise because he has watched entirely too much History Channel for his own good. Concerns about a pirate ship attacking us was one his major push backs. Seriously? Pirates. Ummm. okay.
Anywho, since I haven't been on a cruise in almost 10 years, I am all about doing the tourist thing.
Hey Kev, how do matching fanny packs sound?
I mean, this guy looks pretty pumped to be wearing one (then again, he is at the happiest place on earth, so maybe its like a requirement? IE: Go to place for 5 year olds-check, wear creepy fanny pack- check check?)
I know Jan will be excited to hear this, but apparently Fanny Packs are trying to make a comeback.... **For those of yall that didn't have the privilege of knowing Jan circa 1994- my mom's standard vacay outfit used to consist of not only rocking a french braid that was tied off by a barrette bow, but a flourescent wind-suit that conveniently complimented her handy fanny pack. Yes, it was just as ridiculous as it sounds.**
Please witness the Fabulous Rhianna rocking a fanny pack.
|Ohhh Ri Ri. No. Just NO|
I'll have you know that that fanny pack is made by my beloved Louis Vuitton. But I think it was Countess DeLesseps that said "Even Louis Vuitton makes mistakes." Evidenced by pic above, that statement is a FACT. Even Louis can't make a fanny pack cool. Sorry Ri.
Anywho, normally, I detest Mondays, but this one is SPECIAL. My favorite cousin finally had her sweet baby this morning!!!
So ridiculously adorbs. Due to the blaahh fact I have my MBA class tonight, Kevin & I won't be going to see this sweet angel until tomorrow. However, I can already tell you that I won't be the first person to hold him tomorrow. Ohhhhh no. Absolutely not.
My football-loving, beer & bourbon drinking, pizza & wing eating husband is a certifiable baby nut & will probably try to race me to the hospital nursery to hold baby Banks.
About a month ago, my bff Leslie gave birth to her sweet twins, Aubrey & Avery.
I insisted that we go see them the day they were born, whereas Kevin was super ambivilent all day long. He kept trying to tell me that we needed to give them space, etc. Clearly, I won that battle, because we were there by 6pm. However, imagine my surprise when we were there all of 3 minutes, and Kevin had already sanitized it up, looked at Leslie & said "Alright then, I'm ready to hold these babies!!!!"
Umm, okay enthusiasm? Good lord. I'm not kidding when I saw the boy would not put the sweet baby down. This might strike yall as funny, but even though I babysat from the time I was 14 years old on, holding infants kinda petrify me. I fear I might hold their head wrong, or being me the clumsy person I am, run into something & drop them.
No worries, though- Kevin, aka the Baby Whisperer, was there to help give me pointers on the "proper" way to hold a baby. Please look at him observing & supervising my baby holding skills.
Don't worry yall- I'm sure he is available to give you advice too on the proper child rearing methods. After all, he did get an A in Womens' Studies in college. **Side note: My sister in-law was pregnant with our niece right after he finished this class, and Kevin would think it was perfectly normal to call his sister to TELL her the right things for her to be eating, what size the baby was at each point in her pregnancy, etc. What. A. Weirdo.**
Can't lie, I'm kinda scared that he's gonna pull a "Meet the Focker" & follow me around with a faux boob after we have kids- you know, in case I'm doing it wrong.
|So many things wrong w/ this pic|
Alright yall, thats it for now! Hope you all had a great Monday!
