All of this? For this year's
I'll be getting started on Sunday, when we leave on our cruise, or when I finish Orangina, whichever comes first. We're doing a cruise to the Caribbean, (Aruba, Barbados, Dominica, and St. Thomas) with Carnival. My best friend from high school and his wife are celebrating their one year anniversary, and wanted their friends to come along, but Andy and I are the only ones who could go- we're so excited!

And I hate seaming.
