Wow, it feels good to type that title!
Long story short, Mr.DJW and I have been contemplating the decision to vacation during my break from school at the end of April.
He’s looking for a new job, we’re trying to build up our lil’ nest egg, and we just got back from our honeymoon less than 5 months ago. All of these reasons were pushing us to go with a “staycation” option.
However, a few weeks ago, my girlfriend Jesi sent over some information on the April vacation that her boyfriend booked for her as a 30th bday present! After a few hours of researching and looking for flights, I sent over the information to Mr.DJW and we booked the trip that night!
The Carnival Liberty is setting off on a 7 day cruise through the Western Caribbean beginning April 23-April 30, 2011.
This was actually the cruise I went on with my girlfriends for our senior year spring break. Mr.DJW has also traveled to the Western Caribbean with a different cruise line. But, we haven’t been on this cruise together, there was a port Mr.DJW hadn’t been to, and it was such a great deal we just couldn’t pass it up!
We got the flights booked at the perfect time and for a decent price, so we decided to splurge a little bit and booked a room with a balcony.
It’ll be the perfect balance between “us” time and “friend” time. I was so excited that I had to start the count down, (56 days – if you were curious!), and had to order some bikinis to get my butt into workout mode!
I ordered two, both bandeau tops, because I don’t have any right now and I am hoping for minimal tan lines as possible.
$17.99 each (I got the solid bottoms.)
Top: $17.99 | Bottoms: $19.99
The best part is I got free shipping and an extra 20% for spending $75 (with the addition of a clearnace T-shirt) and the entire order was only $60.00!
I am SO excited.
–What are you looking forward to? Any fun vacations planned for 2011?
