Sailing On The Disney Wonder – Things To Do On The Ship #DisneyCruise

There is so much to do on a cruise ship, especially a Disney ship!  We had a blast and I'm convinced all the activities are the reason I didn't gain any weight - despite eating anything and everything I wanted for a week.  Our whole family was busy and loved the days at sea as much as the port adventures.   Each evening of the cruise, our steward, Michael, would straighten up our cabin and leave us a fun towel animal, chocolates, … [Read more...]

Sailing On The Disney Wonder – The Staterooms #DisneyCruise

Have you ever wondered what a stateroom on a Disney cruise ship looks like?  I'd never been on a cruise before we went early this month.  My only reference was from the movie, Out to Sea with Jack Lemmon.  I was very excited to find that it was spacious, comfortable, well-decorated, and had amazing storage space.

Giveaway: $50 Amazon.com GC or Paypal Cash from Dani Pettrey’s “Stranded” (Worldwide, Ends 10/6)

I read one of the books in the "Alaskan Courage"  series and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Here's a mini-view of what I thought of Dani Pettrey's writing in "Shattered": Pettrey tells her story through dialogue.  She lets the interaction between the characters tell the readers what is happening.  I like reading that type of novel, I feel as though I am "in" the story rather than just reading.  Even when sharing the thoughts of a character, she uses … [Read more...]
