Remember That Time We Remembered That Time?

This is a tale...

a tale of 3 girls...Lula, Heather, and Tiffany...
and that time they were together. In Ecstasy. Or rather, on Ecstasy.


OK, come on...we didn't shoot a porno, or take drugs...
Of course our cruise ship was named the Ecstasy.
Of course our cruise trip advisor was named Vixen.
I do not make this stuff up, y'all.
But wasn't it all so appropriate?
Indeed.



And here we see Camp Ecstasy...
...also known as our room.
Wait! Let me get it right...
Our Suite. Yeah, we had a suite.
On the Verandah deck.
Word to your mother.


While on our getaway,
did we spend our days in a druken haze,
our nights in brazen debauchery?
PUH-lease!
We read.
And read some more.
On our balcony.
In our beds.
On the Sun deck, overlooking the beautiful blue water.
But mostly on the balcony.
Isn't Tiffany so cute here?
(We love us some Jace. Read the Mortal Instruments series, y'all.)



And then there was this one time...
...we went to Cozumel.
Not to shop. Not to sight-see. Not to eat.
Nope.
We went to a beach resort...
where we barely left the warm waters of Mexico.
And YES...the water is that blue.
(And where a fellow named Samuel kept us supplied in cold beverages.)
It was pretty much ecstasy.



Did I mention we read a lot?
Just a sampling of the books devoured while on our trip...90% of them were Young Adult.
Because these days, it's the best stuff out there.
Yes, we all read Suzanne Collins' Catching Fire.
(The 2nd book in The Hunger Games series.)
And we all agreed...
Best. Book. Ever.
The three of us will fight anyone who says otherwise.



I could regale you with stories of frequent naps, lavish meals in the ship's dining room, the hilarity of the precious Filipino dude who hosted karaoke, our wild night in the dance club, all the times we laughed so hard that we cried, or reveal the dark side of swimming in the Mexican waters. (Hint: it may or may not have something to do with drunk Florida Gator--ew!--fans who took off their swim trunks and mooned us repeatedly. Yeah. And...gross!)

But I won't brag.
Instead, I'll share with you the souvenir I picked up in Mexico...
I got a boob job.
JUST KIDDING!
But don't we look super cute?
And by "we," I clearly mean our faces.
Ahem.

Tiff and Heather, it was the vacation of a lifetime...and I can't wait to do it again and again and again. V4 & After. Amen.

p.s. Tiffany...remember that time Heather and I were on the balcony and we saw a whale? Judy the whale, no less! Love it...

I love that you had such a great time. This was a very deserved trip!

CaraBee said...

What a great trip? You girls looks fabulous. And by girls, I mean, *girls*!

Also, just finishing City of Ashes. Love it! Please tell me Jace and Clary wind up NOT being brother and sister. Because otherwise, this stuff is totally wack.

Katie said...

It looks like you had an incredible time! I'm only incredibly jealous.

Of the beaches? No. Of the cruise? No. (Ok, well, yes). No, what I am jealous of the most is "Catching Fire"--my poor bum self can't afford it right now and I just finished "The Hunger Games." Drat! I will join you in love of the book ASAP. For now I'll dream of Peeta.

Glad to see that you had a good trip!

Swirl Girl said...

Mama Belle said...

I need this in my life ... not a "boob job" but a getaway. Don't know if I'd be reading that much though. You are obviously way more intelligent for me.

sassy stephanie said...

So much fun! Glad to hear your girls enjoyed it so much.

Can you believe Catching Fire? UGH!!! I have NEVER loved a sequel more than the first. So awesome.

Heather said...

It was sooooo good. All of it. Wouldn't change one minute. Next year will be sooooooo great. Just think of all the books that will come out in that time. All the cruise fodder...

i've been reading your blog for a few months now. i found your blog through lauren's and both of you are hialrious.

anyway, i love that y'all are reading the Mortal Instruments. I've read them for a few times because the third book isn't available yet (have to wait for the bookstore to restock.. talk about torture!!) And I couldn't wait to read The Hunger Games Series. The book is still not available here because i live in a remote place (lol, just kidding... It feels like it though because I couldn't find a single book of Hunger Games here.

Dorkys Ramos said...

Aww you guys look like you had a blast! And there is nothing wrong with reading on your vacation - as long as you created your own stories to share.

Trish said...

sounds like a blast!

I just took that photo of all those books and saved it in my photos so that I'll have it as reference for what to order from the library and amazon as I sit inside and read ALL the freakin live long winter.............

Heather said...

Ah, cruises are the bomb. So glad to hear you had such a great time. Tiffany's Mona video was cracking me up!

Too bad we won't have a Samuel in the mountains...

Maybe I'll recruit one of the cute boys from the hospital to tag along. If we tip well, I'm sure he'd be willing :)

Vicki said...

Love it! Glad y'all had a spectacular time! And I love girl trips. Don't take enough of them. Remember that time we said we should go to France?

Good thing I love your fine ass.
