We are Back, Another Giveaway and freebie Santa head pattern


Well, we are back.  Got back on Thursday.  The boat docked about 7:00 and we were on our way home by 8:30.  So we got back earlier than expected.  Came home to a clean house and dogs that were happy to see us.  Carmen is staying a couple of days, so we have time to visit. A big thank you to CARMEN for coming at the last minute.   The picture above is Samantha's dogs.  They were very happy  to everything back to normal.

Have a few pictures to share. Me and my daughter Samantha eating lunch outside.

Hubby and me with a view of ship behind us.

We were on board the Carnival ship Fascination and hubby loved the towel animals, acted like a little kid when we returned to our room and found them. We were able to catch several shows and visited the Karoke lounge several times. 

We visited Senor Frogs.  Samantha was legal in the Bahamas to get a drink.  s\So we ate dinner and each got us a tall drink. I finally got my Pina Colada.

Hubby liked to take pictures of the food, we definitely looked like we were tourists or had never been to a nice restuarant before, taking pics of the food.  We ate way too much, too much food to choose from, wanting to eat everything.

Have another freebie that I offered last year, the Quilted Santa head.  Just check the download button at the bottom in the share box.

Here is a picture of me and Carmen, she had her hair cut while she was here.  As you can see, we are holding our Joann's coupons in our hands, getting ready to head out to Joann's in Orange Park. 

I am having another giveaway, it has been awhile since I really paid attention to my blog.  Seems like something is always keeping me busy.  So I will be posting more, hopefully every other day.  Have to get busy for the shows.  In this giveaway. I am giving away 2 bottles of room spray and 7 assorted tarts.
Just leave me a comment  and you must be a member of my blog.  Now for this giveaway I will have 3 of these sets to giveaway.  I will have hubby pick winners on Wednesday.
