Today is January 31st and that means ITS MY BIRTHDAY. Wholly crap folks, today I am the big fifty-five yep 55. Where have the years gone I ask you? No matter, today I am 55 and tomorrow I am heading to Jacksonville for the big vacation.
Big question, how do you celebrate your birthdays? Kent likes a big party. Easy peasy for him though. His Birthday is in August. As I have said before January Birthdays are different. Beside the fact it is too soon after Christmas, most people are suffering post Christmas blues and limited cash flow.
Me, well I continue to state I love traveling for my birthday. My 50th was my very first cruise. It seemed fitting for 55 to go on back to back cruises right. Messed up, I should have done a 5 day and a 5 day, but I did book a 5 and a 4, plus 4 in Jacksonville. Ever been on a cruise? Thoughts?
The first three cruises were on the Carnival Glory and the Conquest (twice). Same class of vessel so the ships were the same. This time we are on the Elation and it is slightly different. In addition we are trying ocean view this time. I tried Balcony and Interior but first time we have a view. Cabin looks cool. Stay tuned and check out my stories, I am going to take you on a cruise.
I am all packed, been so for a few days now. Did you check out my Instagram stories as I was packing? Showed you I really do pack the dollar store items I swear you need. The shoe bag, the magnets, heck I even purchased a new magnetic white board, all conveniences you will wish you had remembered.
Birthday Outfit from Target
I love this fun floral dress I found at Target. Today’s outfit is a cute smock I found at Target two years ago paired with a navy Blazer. My Michael Kors leggings always work perfectly with it. This time I added a my OTK Navy boots from Shoe Dazzle and a fun little chiffon rose necklace.
To show how freeing it is to be 55 I also went sleeveless in the snow… Totally did not do that for very long but hey it made for fun pictures.
