Cotton…Farm to Fabric


Cotton. We have all seen the commercials, heard the theme song.  The Fabric of Our Lives is a catchy little tune we all know, whether we admit it or not.  It really is our lives, like the song says…but until recently, I never really knew HOW MUCH.  Nor did I realize how much we take […]

The Road Trip…Tips and Tricks for Surviving


Last year, my family and I embarked on an epic road trip…cross country (and back) for three crazy weeks. Three weeks.  In a truck. I think we all have these grandiose ideas of hitting the road and seeing our country – I mean, there IS a lot to see, after all – and from the […]

Universal Orlando Theme Parks


Yes, parks. Parkkkssss. A lot of people don’t realize that Universal is made up of two separate but equally awesome theme parks – Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure.  It’s hard to want to do one without the other, so why? But the 2 Park Pass, and jump from park to park as […]

Universal Orlando Citywalk


I’m not much of  goer-outer. True story.  I like to keep to myself, talk to myself, listen o music and cook.  And tweet.  I’ll tweet or text you all day long, but if I have to get dressed and go OUT, well, nothankyouverymuch.  I think I feel an ache in my spleen coming on…better not […]

The Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando was everything I […]

Mardi Gras at Universal Studios Orlando


I’ve never been to Mardi Gras.  In fact, believe it or not, I’ve never even been to New Orleans.  I really need to remedy that, by the way.  But I don’t live in a cave, and I do know the culture, the parties, the food, the environment, the stigma, the grandiose–ness of it all. I […]

Caribbean Princess…Highlights of the Cruise


For the past two months, I’ve been telling you about all the fun I had at sea aboard the beautiful Caribbean Princess.  I was fortunate to be asked on a media trip, so that I could experience all the cruise line had to offer, and I was in for a real treat!  However, ALL of […]

Cozumel, Mexico


One of the most popular cruise ports in the Western Caribbean is Cozumel, Mexico. I’ve been lucky enough to visit several times on cruises, but in October, I took my first actual excursion. I was fortunate to be invited onboard the Caribbean Princess for a fabulous vacation, and one of our scheduled ports was Cozumel. […]

Princess Cruises…Dining


Do you like to eat? Surely you must, you are HERE, on MY site.  This means you really, really like to eat. You might also be a big fan of traveling, which I am.  And especially a big fan of cruising. I’ve traveled abroad to so many places, from Europe to Asia, to South America […]
