she's baaaaack... & giveaway help!

I'm baaaaaaaack! I had SUCH an awesome time on my cruise to the Bahamas with momma - I think I'm ready to go back now! We went snorkeling, swam in the ocean, ate A LOT, watched a lot of shows, played Bingo, walked around, shopped, and all kinds of other things. We had our ups and downs, but overall, it was an amazing vacation! THANK YOU, MOMMA!!

That beautiful lady I call my momma.

Our ship - it was HUGE!

I'm participating in TWO amazing giveaways! First, I'm participating in Kate's 100 follower giveaway at EduKate & Inspire! This woman has become one of my good bloggy friends, and I'm giving away a $10.00 Target gift card! She's also got some other great bloggers lined up to give things away, so GO ENTER (click the picture below)!

Second, I'm participating in MrsMc's MEGA Anniversary giveaway at Buzz Buzz Buzz! She's got a great lineup of prizes going, and I'm giving away ANOTHER $10.00 Target gift card in her giveaway! GO ENTER (click the picture below)!

So, I came back to having OVER 200 followers!!! What?! I was planning a giveaway for hitting 100 followers, but now I've gotta make it bigger & better for the other 100 that have joined me! I'm still asking for anyone that is interested in helping with my giveaway!! E-mail me @ - Thank you for following me and I'll put out details about my giveaway relatively soon - keep checkin' back for information!

There's a linky party going on called "Inky Linky" - I just thought that I would HAVE to join this, as my two tattoos are a large part of me. This linky party is going on at Mr. B's Beach Brains - stop on by and see Mr. B., and link up if you have a tattoo, too! Click the picture below to join!
Here are my tattoos:

This tattoo was my first tattoo. It's on my front left hip. I got it when I was 18 years old and I couldn't be happier. These three words - live laugh love - are the three words I live by daily. Making sure that you live your life is important to me - don't stand by the wayside and watch it go by! You should ALWAYS laugh - it's one of the best types of medicine anyone can have! It also burns fat ;] Love is important in any situation - love is a powerful thing and you shouldn't ever play with it! Make sure to tell everyone that you love that you LOVE them any chance you get - never know when you'll not be able to tell them again!

This tattoo was my second tattoo. It's on my right shoulder blade. I got it in memory of my father, who passed away when I was 19 years old. This was one of the hardest days in my life to go through, but I got this tattoo in a way to remind myself to have strength and courage in everything that I do. Strength is what gets me from day to day, and always will - but courage is the big push. To have courage is a big deal, to me anyway, and I like to remind myself to keep  courage in everything that I do.

Those are my tattoos - go link up!

  2. Glad you had fun on your cruise! I've been to Naussea, but I was on a Disney cruise. Its beautiful isn't it? The water is so blue! When I was in the ocean I saw a starfish walking along the ocean bottom. I got kinda upset because there were some people swimming near us, and I saw them pick up the starfish and take it with them, even though it was still alive!!!

    1. It's absolutely beautiful! And the water is probably the bluest water I've ever seen - very clear! I saw someone along the walkway in Nassau with probably 15 starfish he just caught that I believer were still alive - kind of sad to me!


  3. OMG!! I think that is the same cruise we're going on in August. I'm glad you had fun.
