Day One of Cruise-liquids & partying
Day one of Cruise
HHH and I are packed(one suitcase) and ready to get to the airport. We are picked up at our house by our cab driver about 20 minutes early. (why do we feel it unneccessary to wear seatbelts in cabs/buses)
Usually the cab driver arriving early would be a tiny problem, but since we weren't traveling with the kids, we were ready. Cool.
Get to airport with ample time. We know in advance that they have cleared passengers to carry on 3 ounces or less of liquids. I have perfume spritzer in my purse.Our turn to go through security.( they have a pre-security check for liquids) I have 3 ounces of perfume, but apparently it 's necessary to have all clear liquids in a plastic bag. Since I do not happen to have a box of glad sammich bags with me. HHMomma disposes of perfume. Understanding the reason why. Sad that my almost full bottle of perfume is laying in bottom of a sad garbage can at the airport.
Flight was without incident. If you include the fact that HHHubby was sitting next to a man that clearly was in need of a bigger seat (they are built for small people) when flying Every time I glanced at HHHubby I laughed to myself. They looked like Abbot and Costello sitting next to one another. I obviously am only making fun of the slender build of my hubby.
We fly into LAX and are on the boat by 2:30. I love it. Bride and Groom show up soon thereafter. Sun is shining, music is playing and everyone is smiling.
Meet at bar. Enjoy very tasty and potent libations. One. HHMomma buzzing around.
Next stop is cocktail party given by grooms parents. More drinking and food.
Everything is great. Bride ordered ice sculpture of the letter "B" for party. Sitting on table with it's back turned is a ice carving of a Indian with full head dress. Hm.
Hang out until Midnight, dinner, bars, piano bars, mingling, having fun. Trying to count exactly how many people are wearing Teva's with white socks.
HHhubby is going to meet up with dudes. The Bride and I are calling it a night.
Time to go to room. (sidenote: I have consumed two drinks since arriving on boat)
Walking down empty hallway to room.
This is where things get really fuzzy.
email is fun
blogs that make me smile
