I am currently experiencing the worst case of Sunday Night Blues I've ever had.

I know, I know. I say it every time.

But this is bad.

We had the most fantastic vacation ever:

Cruise ship full of food and cocktails: Check.

Most fantastic, fun, hilarious friends ever: Check.

Tropical island excursions: Check.

Beautiful Caribbean beaches: Check.

Hours and hours of belly-busting laugh sessions: Check. Check. Check.

We seriously had so much fun. Even despite the few bumps we ran into along the way:

Cloudy, windy days at sea, the lack of a "wow, you went on vacation" sun-bronzed glow (thanks to the cruddy weather), the slow yet steady packing on of the infamous cruise weight, the demise of Mr. Ruby's favorite (expensive) pant suit, and the return flight home surrounded by screaming, vomiting and bleeding children leaving Disney World.

However, I am still on a high and very ready to plan our next vacation.

Because I am so sad and so desperate to live on an island forever, I am going to relive my vacation for the rest of the week.

I apologize to those of you who do not give two shakes about our wonderful vacation...but for my sanity, I must come down from my high very, very slowly.

Thus my need to relive my vacation. Through pictures. For the rest of the week.

Hope you enjoy! :)

How fun! Can't wait to see all your photos. It is hard readjusting to "real life" after being on vacation.

I so want to go on another cruise! For one of my classes I've been comparing world cruises on 2 different cruise lines. 107 and 110 day cruises around the world, nice! :-)

Ahh, looks like you all had so much fun :-) I love friend trips too because you get to hang out with some of your favorite people-- you girls DO look like sisters! Love the dress in the last picture too! Hope you have a bareable Monday! :-)
