I'm back!!!! Okay, well I've been back for a week now but I've only been semi-around. I think sometimes you need a vacation, from vacation. Seriously. lol. I've been doing a lot of catch up done this week, just getting settled back in to our routine with work, school and such. I hope you all had a great week, and I'm sorry that I have been MIA lately. This will change! I promise. 

So this post is basically just to share some pics with you all! I felt bad sharing all of these on my STS post, because maybe some people don't want to see all our personal photos.

But if you do... behold all the beauty! I really wish New Jersey and New York had pretty blue water like the islands. :) I'd drive there every weekend if it did. 

Our Cruise left from NYC. It was actually delayed leaving because it had hit a whale that morning coming into port. (no lie) lol.

My little diva all dressed up for the Cirque dinner show. So fun!

Ahh, the open seas! Having a balcony room was awesome. I don't think I can ever got back to just a port hole. It was so nice to sit out and look at the ocean without going out onto the deck and dealing with people.

It was a bit windy in Bermuda. lol


Look at that water!! We took this picture from the aquarium/zoo.

We also visited some caves. They were beautiful.

Horseshoe Bay Beach. So pretty, and the sand really has pink in it! :)

Family photo! I'm one lucky girl <3 And you cant tell from the pic, but holy shit that coral was hurting our asses. It was so pokey. 

Striking a pose.

I love this little girl more than words could ever express

There were all these neat little pools of water all around the beach. So cool. 

This is one of my favorite pictures. So gorgeous.

Bermuda Sunset 

ahhh, can't forget all the cruise food. I probably gained 20 pounds that week. This was the oreo cheese cake. Aubrey was a fan! lol

Now you didn't think I would forget Cardboard Jen, did you? lol. Now I didn't take her everywhere, because honestly I had my in-laws there with us, and they think I'm weird as it is :P 

Watching the other cruise liner come in! 

We let CB Jen sleep right in the middle. #kinky

Enjoying the Bermuda Sunrise. :) 

Taking a swing.. ( you should have seen my husbands face when I pulled her out of the bag in public like that. lol. )

An after dinner stroll with her fav co blogger. It really was right after dinner, so I'm going to say that's why I look pregnant, but really I just eat too much. 

Saying goodbye to the Island. :o( 

It was such a great trip, but I'm glad to be home. Bermuda is beautiful, but I missed my own bed. 

And I've missed all of you! :) 


  1. OH THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL. I'm so jealous...all that awesome blue water. It's so, so clear. Wow. Just gorgeous. ;) I have never done anything like this at all, but it's such a dream of mine. Although I'd probably get seasick. Hehe. ;)

    1. Thank you!! That blue water amazes me every time I see it. :) I got sea sick a little last time I went on a cruise. Never stand up in the shower and shave your legs while on a moving ship. I took some meds this time though and I was fine! :) I hope you get to go on one some day! It's fun.

  2. Wow, gorgeous! I'd love to go on a cruise sometime, but my husband has a thing about water, so yeah. Prolly not going to happen! So glad you guys had a great time as a family, you're little girl looks like a sweetie!

    1. Awwwe, thank you! :o) Thankfully we are all okay with the water, but there was one night the waters were a bit rough, I was questioning it. lol

  3. Looks like a fabulous trip - and your daughter is absolutely adorable!

  4. I literally laughed out loud at all the pictures of Cardboard Jen lololololol.

    Anyways! What a bunch of gorgeous pictures, I love seeing all these travel and personal pictures, to be honest. :-)

    1. lol, She's been everywhere with me. My poor husband just shakes his head. :) If we ever meet up again at a signing I'll be sure to bring her along so you can meet her.

      I love seeing personal pics on blogs too! It's helps to get to know people, aside from what books they like. :)

  5. Photos galore, indeed! I'm still incredibly jealous, but at the same time, I still feel like I was there...for obvious reasons, lol. :) Glad you had such an incredible vacation! You totally deserve some fun and relaxation, Apes! Love you! =)

    1. I so badly wish you guys could have come with us for real. Aubrey and Katie would have been in that spongebob pool none stop. Cardboard Jen would have just gotten soggy. lol.

      Thank you and love you too <3

  6. Those are some gorgeous photos!~ I love that it doesn't look like the beaches are crowded at all.

  7. Loved the photos and recap! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Bahahaha! You and cardboard Jen are hilarious. Tears in my eyes over here! So glad you enjoyed such a beautiful vacation, April!

  9. Cardboard Jen cracked me up. When my kids were little we had to carry Flat Stanley around with us for a day..
