The trip to Barbados for our first anniversary was fantastic.
We hung out with old friends from our last trip and made a few new ones.
clearly that ten pounds hasn't budged since the last time I posted about it.
We went ziplining in the rainforest.
We went sailing on the catamaran and snorkled over coral reefs and a sunken ship. We swam with enormous, friendly sea turtles. (We'll see if any of my pictures from the disposable underwater camera actually come out. I petted one. Its back was surprisingly mossy.) The view was gorgeous.
And the boat had an open bar for the whole trip.
What ten pounds?
We had many romantic dinners.
Isn't the decor just awesome?
I chased reluctant crabs with my camera.
We did plenty of lounging around, too.
The cats were happy to see us when we came home.
Since we've been home, I have done approximately one thousand loads of laundry, made meringues and puttered around with the container "garden", aka a couple of tomatoes and a few hanging baskets on the porch that I'm desperately trying to keep alive. Also I dyed my hair blond.
And that's all the news I've got for now.
