My Everyday Life: Week 3

Here’s what the past week looked like on Royal Caribbean’s The Oasis of the Seas:

(I was there for the Click Retreat with Joy!)

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Above water.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Siren song. No jumping for me…but apparently someone had an accident…

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

The water is so dang blue in the Caribbean.

She is the best travel partner.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Watching people watch sharks at Atlantis.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Watching kids watching youtube at Atlantis.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

I felt like the top middle fish here while at Atlantis. I’m not a person who likes crowds.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Inside the ship. IT WAS GIGANTIC.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Getting ready for dinner.  I’m wearing mega heels & Joy is wearing her Sedona jacket.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

DAZZLES.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

“I like your jacket.”

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

The disco night we accidentally ran into.

People watching is PRIMO on a cruise ship. It’s like being in Las Vegas.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

“Make like a tree and get out of here.”

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Escaping into a reflection.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

PATRON NIGHT!! Joy and I hosted a cocktail hour with a little impromptu food styling demo.

This is Joy’s Vanilla Bean Daiquiri  and it was bonkers!

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

That day we escaped the crowds.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

The ocean always mesmerizes me.

Golden.

Making her laugh is addictive.

Our days were filled with margaritas…..

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Tacos…guac…and chips…. I found a rogue tortilla chip in my suitcase (WHAT?!)

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Food styling workshop with Brittany & Meta.  They’re both an inspiration!

My team was required to style something with the guidelines of RED & FLORAL.

This is what we came up with:

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

We broke off on our own and styled some stuff.

Here’s my little corner.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

I love how this turned out.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

I’m glad I brought this outfit.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

What I ate for breakfast most days.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

We recorded three mini podcasts (CAPTAIN’S LOG!) while on the ship.

Hopefully we’ll post them soon. They’re wacky….because ship life is WACKY.

I’m home now and I feel like the ground is rocking back and forth!

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

SO MUCH FUN hanging out on the balcony.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

There were a TON of teens from Costa Rica on our ship. There were a lot of selfie-stick moments.

Totally like PROM!

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Getting a restaurant tour.

Zip lining on the ship.

This sunrise was pretty epic.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

This sunset wasn’t too shabby….

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Casino Night was one of my favorite nights.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

I spent a lot of time packing for this trip and I built 5 outfits around a black maxi dress….and I proceeded to forget THE BLACK MAXI DRESS so I ended up buying one on one of our excursions. Crisis averted.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

Watching him not chop off his hands.

MY EVERYDAY LIFE: WEEK 3

This guy had the best smile.

The moment when I really missed my family. I watched this boy take his first jet-ski ride  with his mom and it was so awesome to see how happy he was.

Trying to keep this moment forever.

    These photos make me so happy! Love seeing you and Joy together ON A BOAT!

  • sue|theviewfromgreatisland

    These photos make green with envy — soooo cool!

  • Grace

    I really like the added, “Week 2 looked like in..”!

  • rach

    Great pictures, Tracy! My parents were on the Oasis of the Seas the week before you and Joy. They were on board when that guy went over, apparently there were all sorts of crazy rumors that he was found with a life vest on and had crawled out of a loading dock… Some of the retirees were even guessing that Disney put him up to it as advertisement (OK.) Anyway, made me laugh- gossip on the high seas!

  • Ellie

    Awww, I love this! I’m from Nassau so it was nice to see glimpses of home. Your trip looked awesome!

  • Julie

    You make cruise life look like so much fun that I’m not even scared nor do I feel like it would be constraining.

    • Tracy

      You have to like being around a lot of people if you want to be on a cruise. I really enjoyed the ship when it was empty and docked. It’s super overwhelming if you’re an introvert! But I had a wonderful time with my friend throughout the experience so it was a success!

  • Amy @ Thoroughly Nourished Life

    I’m so glad you had a great time! Thanks for sharing a glimpse of your wonderful holiday with us. I can’t wait to listen to the Captain’s Logs :)

  • Laura (Blogging Over Thyme)

    Boat life WAS crazy. Seriously! I’m still swaying like woh.

  • Elana

    First, the colors here are amazing; those blues!!

    But seriously, selfie sticks are used in public without irony or embarrassment? I must be getting old if I don’t get it.

  • Kate Shu

    That gd banana daiquiri pic?! Heaven on earth!

  • Erica@ Everyday Erica

    You’re trip looked so amaze! I lived through you both a little bit this week. Thank you and cheers! Daiquiri’s for us all :)

  • Amanda

    3 things:

    1. You and Joy are supes hot! (Did I just abbreviate “super?” I did. I don’t know myself anymore.)

    2. Can’t wait to listen to CAPTAIN’S LOG!

    3. Your purple nail polish! Love it!

  • Lizy Tish

    What great pictures – looks like so much fun!(I’m scared of going on a cruise – I don’t see how in the world it floats and I’m convinced it will sink.) Loved your food styling pic with the strawberries and lemons too…

    • Tracy

      You’ve gotta do a good job blocking that from your mind when you’re on a boat or else you’re not gonna make it through.

  • Patri Lara

    I loved watching all the pics of your week, it sounds like so much fun!
    I can’t wait to go with my best friend to Amsterdam next March 😀

  • Sara

    What are those gorgeous black flats your friend is wearing?

  • Talia

    Looks like such a fun week!

  • Diane@aplanforcooking

    Thanks for sharing these pictures. It was so fun seeing you and Joy having such a great time together.

  • Emily @ Life on Food

    What great color in the pictures this week! Looks like you had a fantastic time. I haven’t been on a cruise before. I always wondered how long the rocking feelings last.

  • Lynne @ 365 Days of Baking and More

    Gorgeous pictures, Tracy. SO happy to have met you and Joy in person and share such a wonderful week with you both!

  • Jessica H.

    Ha! People watching sharks transitioning into kids watching YouTube. So funny! That cruise looks amazing! I think just looking at these photos has made me feel a little more relaxed!

  • Katie

    Girls’ get-aways are the BEST! A get-away on a cruise ship seems like the ultimate. Thanks for sharing the photos!! Here’s what I have “always” wondered (since starting to read both of your blogs): How did you and Joy meet?? And what does MAJ stand for???

    • Tracy

      maj means MAJOR like she’s the most major friend in my life! MAJ! Also-we met in 2009 at a BlogHer conference. It all started with a mutual eye roll across the table and we’ve been friends ever since.

  • kim

    Tracy – I love your hair…
    Maj – I love your blue polished toes

    Both – make it a reunion every year! I go to Puerto Rico every year with my college roommate.. same time..same place..same room..12 years and counting. oy vey..Best time of my year…

  • MIra C.

    Oh my gosh, these photos of you and Joy are so delightful. So wonderful seeing you two having a wonderful time together! Maj power for life.

  • Denise

    What a great trip! Did you hit St. Thomas, the Banana Hut for daiquiris? If so, I was there some twenty years ago, and still remember how amazing they were! Not tour bus back then …

  • Andie Mitchell

    Just wanted to tell you that I adore you and that reading your blog (and following you on Instagram) brings such a joy (ha! slid it in) to my life.
