Trisha Evans

Have a safe and pleasant journey. Can't wait to hear all about it when you return!


Well, yes.....the food.......but...don't count on doing much in the workout department. Hahaha...you will be too busy having fun to do that.

I gained about a pound a day on my cruise..(and I was seasick for the first 4 days)'course, that was a long time ago..and I had no self control in the eating department. Just take along some "BIG" clothes too... and exercise when you get back. Just a change in eating habits for two weeks after your return should do it.

Have a great holiday!!


I hope you all have a fabulous time!! It's perfect to start the year off with a holiday. Hope you will enjoy it all.

Hi Chris!
Have a wonderful time! I lived in Naples for years. Worked for the Naples Daily News and Gulfshore life magazine. Still have 3 sisters there. I am in Naples about 4/5 times a year!

Relax, soak up the sun and enjoy!


Have a fantastic time and look forward to hearing all about it on your return!

I've just booked my holidays for April and am already worrying about what to pack!

Best Wishes

Dear Christine,

Happy Birthday
..........or as Hef would say
"Happy Special Beautiful Birthday!"
I look forward to seeing you on your return and perhaps sharing a belated celebratory cocktail with the giant delicious cheesy burger we keep talking about(I just looked cheesy up to make sure I spelled it correctly and I got a link to lose 9 lbs of belly fat every 11 days with 10 easy rules, we'll have to look into that after the burger of course).
Have a fabulous warm sunny well-deserved vacation. Kalo Taxithi(that's a Greek Bon Voyage)

Happy Birthday



HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU my sweet friend!!! I have been on that cruise ship and it's wonderful and you should have smooth sailing at this time of year. The gym on the ship is great, food is good and you need to do one of those catamaran trips for snorkeling! We rented horses last year and rode them into the ocean....what a treat! If you make it to Miami, pop over to Shabbyfufu's place! XO~ Janet

Kimberly Ryan

I hope you have a wonderful time! I look forward to hearing about it upon your return, so I can live vicariously through your vacation! LOL!


Have a wonderful vacation!! Soak up that sun!!



I am so happy for you and dear hubby. I'm so jealous too. I've been wanting to go on a cruise since I was a little girl. Maybe I can surprise my hubby this year for our Anniversary in August (it's my turn to choose the fun).
Please let me know how the cruise went, if you would recommend it.
Have fun working on that super tan.


Just came across your site, and blog while browsing Bella Pink..... I love that you share your family with us here, in the cyber-world. They are beautiful, and your posts remind us all to take joy in our own families, and our own passions in life. I am still raising my children, which takes up most of my time, but I hope to fulfill a passion of mine in the not-to-far off future.

Have a wonderful vacation!! I will continue to visit your blog, for inspiration. Love your Boutique!!

Trisha Evans
