Bachelorette Party Cruise

Hello from Ensenada, Mexico!!!

Yesterday I boarded a cruise ship for my friend Susan’s Bachelorette Party.IMG 0573 800x600 thumb Bachelorette Party Cruise

It’s a short three day cruise from Long Beach to Ensenada and back. We left Friday afternoon and will get home Monday morning. Ben dropped me off at the Port of Long Beach around 2pm yesterday. I miss him already <3IMG 0571 800x600 thumb Bachelorette Party Cruise

We were greeted with strawberries and champagne! It felt so fancy! IMG 0582 600x800 thumb Bachelorette Party Cruise

I do have one tiny complaint about this cruise though, Carnival’s choice of décor is slightly offensive…IMG 0613 600x800 thumb1 Bachelorette Party CruiseShortly after settling in we headed to the safety drill. We totally paid attention and did not discuss Most Eligible Dallas wlEmoticon winkingsmile14 Bachelorette Party Cruise (Did you hear Matt is dating a RHWOBH?!)

Then, we explored the ship. It is a lot cooler than I expected. We’ll see if I brave the pool…IMG 0593 800x600 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

Around 5pm I was HUNGRY, but dinner was far off (any time I have to wait more than 5 minutes to eat is far off). Anyways, we got pizza.IMG 0600 800x600 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

I also put together a mish-mosh of hot dog toppings – grilled onions, mushrooms, cole slaw, salsa and potato salad – hold the hot dog wlEmoticon winkingsmile14 Bachelorette Party Cruise

Finally, it was time to get ready for dinner and dancing! We warmed up a bit wlEmoticon winkingsmile14 Bachelorette Party CruiseIMG 0608 800x600 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

Yes, I wear this dress every time I go out. Yes, I own more than one dress. But, I don’t own more than one dress I feel confident in, so this is what you have to look at. Again.IMG 0609 800x600 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

Luckily, my friends don’t mind I always wear the same thing. They say it helps keep track of me.IMG 0610 800x600 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

Dinner should always start with bread or chips… sometimes both.IMG 0617 800x600 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

I ordered the pumpkin squash and cheddar pot pie. I was beautiful and tasted amazing. Ah-mazing.IMG 0622 800x600 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

It came with a side of polenta. Apparently the chef thinks I’m still carb loading because that’s all this meal was! Luckily, I also think I’m still carb loading (any word on what marathon I should do next so I don’t have to stop?).

I’ve been on this cruise before so I know you MUST order the Warm Chocolate Melting Cake for dessert. IMG 0634 800x600 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

We went back to the room after dinner to play a few reindeer bachelorette party games.IMG 0641 600x800 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

I love going out to dance, but rarely do it wlEmoticon sadsmile4 Bachelorette Party Cruise I was super excited to get out and move to the music.IMG 0646 800x600 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

And I wasn’t the only one excited about dancing…IMG 0649 800x600 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

The rest of the night is blurry. I think there was vodka, mid-night pizza and a few blisters involved. But I cannot confirm wlEmoticon winkingsmile14 Bachelorette Party Cruise

THIS is why Susan and I are friends – we went to sleep drunk after 3am last night and woke up this morning to run on the track.IMG 0653 800x600 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

We didn’t get too crazy with it, but it felt good to get out.IMG 0656 600x800 thumb1 Bachelorette Party Cruise

We also checked out the gym for some ab work.IMG 0660 800x600 thumb Bachelorette Party Cruise

By this time I was starving and attacked the breakfast buffet. IMG 0665 800x600 thumb Bachelorette Party CruiseIMG 0668 600x800 thumb Bachelorette Party Cruise

I piled on oatmeal with toppings, eggs, fruit, piece of a cinnamon roll and two boxes of cereal. IMG 0671 800x600 thumb Bachelorette Party Cruise

Now we are getting ready to explore Ensenada for the day. Anyone want me to bring them back a sombrero?IMG 0654 800x600 thumb Bachelorette Party Cruise

See ya in a bit!

    I have to say it–you look amazing! I hope you realize how confident you should feel (not that confidence should hinge on how you look, but ya know what I mean)!!

    Also, I was SO confused at first when you commented about thinking Carnival’s decor is offensive. I’ve been on a Carnival cruise & was like “wait, what?? I don’t remember seeing anything like that!” but then I realized it was sarcasm. Silly me..

    I think you rock that dress! I’d wear it over and over again too.

    I love dancing, probably specifically because I can’t do it. I’m really good at acting like I do, although I’m sure everyone is on to me ;) Have a great time!

    A bachlorette on a cruise sounds like so much fun!
    All the best characters always wear the same outfit, Waldo, daria, Lisa Simpson & Cathy come to mind, but there are definitely more! It’s your trademark dress :)

    Sooo funny that you mentioned Most Eligible Dallas. I work at the production company that does that show so it’s weird to see it on a blog that I read. Wow. My worlds are coming together.
