“So I Can Kiss You Anytime I Want”

We all know the line from Sweet Home Alabama. There is just something about that movie and that line that I just love. I can’t tell you how many times I have watched that movie either. ❤

In case you haven’t seen the movie- In the beginning of the movie when they were kids:

Her: What do you want to be married to me for, anyhow?   Him: So I can kiss you anytime I want. (They kiss in the middle of a storm). At the end of the movie, he asks her why she wants to marry him and she says “So I can kiss you anytime I want.” 🙂 So sweet!

When thinking about decorations and word quotes for our room, there were a lot that I loved. It was so hard to decide.  But “So I can kiss you anytime I want” is something my husband and I still jokingly say to each other 🙂 So in our room it belongs.

I started out with an old sign. It was free and going to be thrown away by a neighbor. Although it is a good sign, I didn’t have a place for it in my house. So, a new sign it is! If you didn’t have a sign to reuse, I don’t see why you couldn’t just use a piece of wood.


I taped off the frame and sprayed the sign white:


I cut out the letters with my Cricut (I LOVE IT):


I organized the letters out and pressed them down:


I spray painted the sign again with blue over the letters:


I carefully lifted the letters and the white showed. I untaped the border and here is the final sign. I found a perfect place for it above the closet doors.


And I leave you with Tank, who doesn’t care about the sign, but loves his place in the room. He heard Bailey bark and it made for a perfect pose.  I couldn’t resist posting this! 🙂



We went on a Cruise!

We actually went on vacation. For any of you that know my husband, this was a huge feat. I mean an actual vacation. This was actually our 10-year anniversary trip. We went on a cruise through Norwegian Cruise Line.

We drove to Miami leaving on a Saturday 7/6. Got to Miami on Sunday and we stayed the night. We eagerly got on The Norwegian Sky Monday morning and each day we were on a new Bahama island.  Tuesday-Freeport, Wednesday-Nassau, and Thursday-Great Stirrup Cay (the cruise line’s private island). We arrived back in Miami on Friday and we spent two days with my grandmother in Florida (she lives near Delray Beach). My mom and stepfather were down there too, so we spent the mornings in the water.


Although it’s nearly impossible to describe over a week’s vacation in a blog post without boring you, but I’ll try. I picked 10 things I loved about my vacation since it was our ten year anniversary vacation.

10.  The ship- It was a wonderful place to stay for a few days. There were 12 floors and the ship held (I think) over 2,000 passengers, but it didn’t feel crowded at all. This was actually one of their older ships, but they were updating everything. Also, if your thinking about going on a cruise, I didn’t get sea sick. I couldn’t even really feel the ship move. DSCN0474

9. Freestyle Dining: We could eat whenever we wanted and where ever we wanted. We didn’t have to get dressed up either. I loved the dinner where we celebrated our 10-year anniversary. Some crew members sang us a romantic song and even encouraged Tony to sing to me too. 🙂 It was so neat, although I was a little embarrassed with all that attention.


8. The towels: I know. I know. It might sound strange, but we were looking forward to how they folded the towels each day. We teased that our room steward was like a ninja. We never saw him, but we always had a perfect room. I kind of messed this little guy up when I decided to hold it for the picture. See our complementary bottle of wine in the background too?!


7. The views from the ship: They were absolutely beautiful. I wish I would have taken more pictures because the picture below really doesn’t do it justice. There is just something amazing about being with my best friend taking in breathtaking views.


6. Activities on the ship: We loved all the activities on the ship. We won $120 on Bingo, $100 on the ship’s casino, and nothing on Deal or No Deal. Ironically, Deal or No Deal was my favorite because you could play along with the contestant chosen randomly from the audience. Tony and I had a good time! We also loved the comedian.


5. Romantic Dinner Night- Tony and I chose to eat in one of the ship’s ‘special’ restaurants the second night on the cruise ship. This is where you get a beautiful meal, a gorgeous view, and amazing service. Our dinner consisted of shrimp cocktail, filet mignon, mashed potatoes, and a toffee brownie with homemade chocolate ice cream. This was our best dinner on the ship. Besides, the company was great too! Doesn’t he look so handsome?!


4. Morning coffee on the deck– We spent our mornings drinking coffee with the beautiful views. As simple as this is, it was one of my favorite parts. I enjoyed the time with Tony talking about the day before and what our next adventure was going to be.


3.Snorkeling- We chose to snorkel at Great Stirrup Cay. We didn’t see much, but we still had fun. Besides, Tony couldn’t really sit still, so this was a perfect adventure for both of us. 🙂 We did the same thing 10 years ago on our honeymoon at the same island. I loved it.


2. Atlantis– We spent the day at the Aquaventure at Atlantis in Nassau. It was really amazing. My favorite part was going on their rapid river ride (I’m not really sure what it was called). We thought it was going to be a lazy river… ummm.. no. It wasn’t at all. We loved the built in water slides and waves! Although the double tube made it a bit scary.  🙂 We also got to go through aquariums with sharks, which was awesome!


1. The best part about the cruise was spending time with the man that I love. 🙂 He is truly amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better trip. It was perfect. IMG_0441
